X9R Marauder VS Marauder 2

When you see the word Marauder, what comes to your mind?

MARAUDER is or was a United States Government research project. It is an acronym of Magnetically Accelerated Ring to Achieve Ultra-high Directed Energy and Radiation. It was first reported on August 1, 1993. The objective appears to be the firing of 1-meter diameter toroids of magnetically contained plasma. The toroids behave in a similar manner to spheromak plasma reactors. As of 1993, the project appeared to be in the early experimental stages.

This high output flashlight is delivered in a large carrying case including a charging cable and comfortable shoulder strap for convenient carry. The X9R Marauder is the best option for intense output, long runtimes, and sustainable use for years to come.

Compared with the X9R Marauder, the Marauder 2 is more of the best flood and throw in the size of a soda can.  A large LED has been added in the center of the head to enable an 800-meter spotlight beam, and 12 small LEDs circle the edge to create a 14,000-lumen floodlight beam.

Moreover, you can find that Marauder 2 has a smart rotary knob switch, which the X9R Marauder doesn't have. You can twist the rotary button clockwise to increase the brightness or anti-clockwise to decrease the brightness and turn the light on and off with a single press. Quick and simple.
