From "Superior Warrior" To "Lumen Monster": How to Choose the Right Olight Searchlight Torch?


If you're looking for a bright, powerful, aggressive torch to accompany your outdoor activities, hunting, camping, night security, law enforcement and search & rescue, you've come to the right place! Search torches that you could find at Olight Store UK are all with constant and safe high output settings, unparalleled long-distance irradiation and excellent runtime for all your needs.


In this blog, we will make a general comparison to show the similarities and differences among five best selling Olight search torches from five aspects, including Warrior X 3, Seeker 3 Pro, Javelot Pro 2, Marauder 2, X9R, help you find THE ONE that meets your specific requirements.


1. Price and Cost Efficiency


The price range of the Olight search torches is quite wide and it surely could be the first consideration for the majority. We promise all our products are of high cost-efficiency that make every penny count.  


Most torches of them come with compatible torch accessories including charging cable, holster, lanyard or carrying case, etc. Occasionally there is a free EDC torch as an extra gift for you. Details can be viewed on the relevant product page. You can also join O-Fan Club for free and look into our flash sale events timely to get huge discounts.

If the numbers seem abstract, here are two references for you:

An egg weighs about 1.78oz/50g.

An iPhone 13 Pro is about 5.78in/146.7mm tall.


The graph intuitively shows that Seeker 3 Pro, Warrior X 3 and Javelot Pro 2 are lighter and smaller than Marauder 2 and X9R, easier to handhold and carry. So they are packed with holster. In addition, they are mountable to be installed on long setups. Though slender in size, what they can do is far more than you can imagine.  


The reason why Marauder 2 is designed to be chunky is that not only is it just a torch, but also its built-in 54Wh rechargeable lithium-ion battery makes it a power bank, which helps you conquer the power cut situation.

X9R is surely a heavy tough guy, despite that, it is surprisingly effortless to hold because of its ergonomic milled finger grooves and balanced weight distribution. And its size and weight are matched with the incredible 25,000 lumens output. It is also packed with a comfortable shoulder strap for convenient carry and a case containing accessories you might need.

Here is one reference for you:

The football pitch of London Stadium is 105 by 68 metres.  


We can observe from the graph above that all five products have shown great max performance ranging from 2,500 to 25,000 lumens of X9R, impressive beam distance from 250 to 1050 metres of Javelot Pro 2, and max runtime from 8 hours to 15 days of Seeker 3 Pro.


(Note that the maximum output are limited to high or full charge, and the maximum runtime is limited to the lowest lumens setting level.)  


Warrior X 3 & Javelot Pro 2

Throw light means a directed and focused light that can help you see the details and characteristics of a specific subject. For instance, it enables you to focus on a distant target when hunting or detect danger when you hear a sudden noise somewhere in the dark.


Seeker 3 Pro & X9R

Floodlight means a broad range of lights that can illuminate a large area around you from a wide beam angle, which is suitable for observing the surrounding environment and professional large-scale field search and rescue operations. Take X9R the lumen monster at its brightest, for example, it can instantly make the whole mountaintop become stunning bright like the daytime.

Marauder 2 has both floodlights and spotlights as its characteristic to suit your different needs in diverse situations.
