There are certain tools we all need to carry to get us through a day. If I am at the ranch or out hunting or hiking, one of those tools is always a good flashlight. The Olight Warrior Mini 2 Four Elements Limited-Edition Tactical Light has proven itself to be a fantastic everyday carry option.
The Olight Warrior Mini 2 Four Elements is a titanium-bodied tactical flashlight loaded with features. The titanium body is rugged, and it should survive many years of use.
There are four limited-edition versions available; each has unique colors and 3D etched designs in the titanium depicting the four elements; Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water. There are only 4,000 of each element’s versions being made.
I received the Fire version; each light in the limited-edition series is essentially the same, other than its case’s styling.
The Olight Warrior Mini 2 Four Elements Limited-Edition Tactical Light includes several everyday carry options to help meet just about any need right in the box. The reversible clip is my favorite method of carrying in my pocket, but it also comes with a carabineer finger ring as well as a wrist lanyard. These options should cover just about any preferred method of carrying the light, from clipping it onto a bag, attaching it to your backpack, to carrying it in a pocket.
The flashlight measures 4.65″ long by 0.98″ wide on the light end (the tail end is 0.91″ wide), and it weighs 5.1 ounces without any add-ons.
The LED bulb brings a max output of 1750 lumens with a 220-meter throw. This is a powerful light for its compact size. The rechargeable battery gives a 45 day run time and is charged via a magnetic cable that snaps on the back button.
This charging method is so much easier than taking the light apart to charge or taking batteries out to charge; if I had to pick just one, the ability to so easily recharge the flashlight is probably my favorite feature!
The Olight Warrior Mini 2 Four Elements Limited-Edition Tactical Light’s 1750 lumen LED is controlled with a dual button system. One button is located in the back of the light where the charger connects (the tail-switch button), while the second is located toward the front (the side-switch button).
There are six different lighting modes (Tubo, High, Medium, Low, Moon, and Strobe) that can be changed with either button. Again, giving the user options for comfort and best use.
Here is a chart showing the different modes, how many lumens they produce, and how long the flashlight can last in each mode.
|4 + 206 + 40 minutes|
|218 + 55 minutes|
|Strobe||Yes, 1,750 lumens, 13Hz|
|SOS / BEACON||N/A|
A proximity sensor near the LED automatically dims the light, and the proximity sensor will turn the flashlight off after one minute if the lens is obstructed to avoid overheating.
I have carried the Olight Warrior Mini 2 Four Elements for about a week now, and I really like its size and design. The titanium build is hefty and rugged, and I see this light lasting a long time. With all of the carry options, anyone can find a way to use it. I prefer to use the clip to secure it inside my front pocket or on my side pocket if I have my tactical pants on while hunting.
Adding to the useability is the two-button system, which makes the light usable at almost any angle. I love how it charges via a magnetic cable that is super easy to use. It’s even drop-tested to 1.5 meters and IPX8 waterproof!
The Olight Warrior Mini 2 Four Elements Limited-Edition Tactical Light is fantastic and bright; it’s a great everyday carry item. Whether you wear it in a pocket, keep it in a bag, or store it somewhere easily reached inside your vehicle.
