The Olight M3X is a high output monster that won’t break the bank. Maxing out at 700 lumens the M3X can definitely hang with the big boys while still being accessible to the masses.
The M3X gives you plenty of options when it comes to the power source. An optional extender tube allows you to use 3 or 4 CR123’s, or 2 rechargeable 18650 lithium batteries. Run time on high peaks out at a respectable 1.2 hours on max brightness, and 15 hours on low mode which is 60 lumens. The term “low” is used loosely here, 60 lumens is still more than enough light for most tasks. The M3X uses a CREE XM-L LED for improved performance and throw. Operation is as simple as it gets. Press the switch on the back of the light to power it on, and twist the bezel to choose between high and low.
Extreme output and ease of use makes the M3X great for people who want a straight forward torch with enough power for any task.
