The Olight Marauder 2 flashlight is a soda can-shaped beast with both floodlight and spotlight modes, emitting up to 14000 super bright lumens. The Marauder has a main inner core LED for spotlight, while 12 surrounding LED bulbs give the floodlight. The range of the spotlight reaches up to 800 meters / 2624 feet, making it suitable to use for search and rescue too, and not just hiking around with an insanely bright light. Switching between spot and flood is done with a click on a button, while a nifty rotatable knob adjusts the brightness settings, you don’t see that often on flashlights. The Marauder 2 uses a built-in battery pack consisting of 3 x 21700 5000 mAh batteries which are recharged by the included USB cable. This battery pack can also work as a power bank, letting you charge your phone and other gadgets too.

Video review and demonstration of the Marauder 2 torch
Here you can see a video of the Marauder 2 flashlight from Olight, with technical specifications and how to use it. The flood and spotlight modes are also demonstrated here, you can skip to 09:30 if you just want to see it in action. The floodlight is crazy on this thing, lighting up the entire area. The spotlight gives an ultra-bright long-distance light focused in a square, so for hiking you probably want to use the spotlight
Product summary with latest price and store page link
If you are looking for a floodlight with a high lumen output to illuminate large areas, this bad boy won’t let you down. The spotlight on the other hand is a bit too focused for my taste, you won’t really see what’s going on around the spot, as it’s all focused inside the square. The floodlight has however a long enough throw distance which lets you see what’s going on in the distance as well. Another thing I personally am not a fan of is the battery pack, you can not take it out and replace the batteries with charged spare ones, so for longer hikes and camping trips, this could result in a runtime problem. If you want to take a look at other alternatives, check out the 10 brightest flashlights section. Final note: If the square spotlight and inability to replace batteries on the go doesn’t turn you off, this is an otherwise amazing high-quality flashlight
