Olight Marauder 2 14000lm review. Is it worth it in 2023?
The Olight Marauder 2 (MARAUDER2) released in 2020. It uses 12 x Osram KW CULPM1.TG LEDs, 1 x Osram P9 LED, TIR reflector and integrated 5000mAh Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 14000 lm output, 160000 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 800 m.
The Marauder 2 flashlight is an essential tools for emergency preparedness. In situations like natural disasters or blackouts, when electricity is unavailable, a flashlight becomes crucial for navigating dark areas, locating supplies, or signaling for help. TIR technology minimizes hotspots, dark spots, and irregularities in the beam of Marauder 2. This light has 7 modes of lighting. The memory function is a nice feature, the light will remember the last used mode.
It has a strobe function, which is one of the most effective self defense tools available. This USB rechargeable flashlight eliminates the need for disposable batteries, offering a more eco-friendly and cost-effective solution.

Olight Marauder 2 (MARAUDER2) specifications
The Marauder 2 flashlight offers precise and focused illumination. Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.
|Body diameter||53 mm|
|Head diameter||79 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 750 g flashlight is quite heavy for a handheld flashlight. The increased weight can provide advantages such as longer runtime, enhanced durability, and the ability to project a brighter and farther-reaching beam. The length of a flashlight can affect how it feels in your hand and how you can grip and maneuver it. A longer flashlight may provide a more substantial grip, making it easier to hold and control, especially if you have larger hands.
The aluminium body of Marauder 2 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery. The HAIII process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. This improves the overall durability of the flashlight body. The Marauder 2 flashlight is available in assorted colors: black, blue.
|Emitter||12 x Osram KW CULPM1.TG LEDs, 1 x Osram P9 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||TIR + convex|
|Switch||dual electronic side|
The emitter of Marauder 2 manufactured by Osram, a German lighting manufacturer. Osram is a well-known and respected LED manufacturer in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. The TIR lens of Marauder 2 can minimize light loss and achieve high light output by capturing and redirecting a significant portion of the emitted light. This can result in improved overall beam quality, better beam control, and reduced stray light. The Marauder 2 utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
With 14000 lm, the Marauder 2 flashlight will provide an exceptionally intense and blindingly bright beam of light. It can illuminate large areas, vast outdoor spaces, or even serve as a temporary spotlight in the darkest conditions. 160000 cd represents an extremely high level of brightness for a flashlight. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The Marauder 2 has mode memory. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again. The Marauder 2 is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate.
|Battery||integrated 5000mAh Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
|Specials||flood- and spotlight|
The Olight Marauder 2 flashlight is powered by integrated 5000mAh Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The USB charger port on a flashlight can be particularly useful in emergency situations where access to power outlets may be limited. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.
The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. The impact resistance of a flashlight can vary depending on its design, construction, and intended use. The Marauder 2 flashlight can be used as a powerbank to recharge a device, such as a mobile phone.
|Package contents||USB Type-C cable|
By securing the flashlight with a lanyard, you can free up your hands for other tasks while keeping the flashlight within reach.
The performance of the Olight Marauder 2 flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
