Olight’s beloved M3X Triton gets an upgrade, and by golly it sure is pretty.
Many people are familiar with the 800 lumen Olight M3X Trition XM-L LED, and has been one of the more popular flashlights on our site. To make a good thing even better, Olight tweaked a few things to make the Olight M3X XM-L2 throw farther, and have an even brighter beam.
Bumping the outdated XM-L LED to the brand new XM-L2, the M3X Triton bumps its output from 700 all the way up to 1000 ANSI lumens. There is definitely quite the difference between the old and new versions of the light, especially in the beam distance. Granted that the previous Triton model had a fantastic beam projection, the latest version is pushing distances of 580 meters, which can light up a great amount of land/building/sky/etc. This, combined with the larger emitter of the XM-L2 allows an excellent combination of flood and throw, which is rare to find in lights these days.
While this light is brighter and has a better beam projection than the last model, the best part about this new light is the price. With all of these great new features, the one thing that remains the same is the price. The new torch comes with the same price, set up, but a better performance than the 700 lumen version. The only question to ask yourself, is why you haven’t checked out this light for your next choice?
