Olight X7R Marauder (X7RM) specifications
The X7R Marauder 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||52 mm|
|Head diameter||68 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 665 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 also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue.
The aluminium body of X7R Marauder 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 X7R Marauder flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.
|Emitter||Cree XHP70 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
The emitter of X7R Marauder manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation 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 X7R Marauder has a smooth reflector. The properly focused smooth reflector gives you a more cohesive hotspot and therefore throws better.
The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the X7R Marauder flashlight. The X7R Marauder utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
The X7R Marauder flashlight can produce 12000 lm output. Flashlights with very high lumen outputs demand a substantial amount of power. Ensure you consider the battery capacity, runtime, and rechargeability of the flashlight. The X7R Marauder flashlight with 36100 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.
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 X7R Marauder 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 X7R Marauder 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||4 x special 18650 Li-Ion batteries|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
The Olight X7R Marauder flashlight is powered by 4 x special 18650 Li-Ion batteries. 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 "7" in the IPx7 rating indicates that the X7R Marauder flashlight, can withstand being submerged in water up to a certain depth for a limited time without being damaged.
|Package contents||C5V 4A wall adapter|
USB Type-C cable
The holster provides a reliable and convenient way to keep your flashlight securely protected when not in use. When gripping the flashlight with the lanyard around your wrist, it provides a more secure and stable hold.
The performance of the Olight X7R Marauder 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.
