Olight M4R

Just saw this, Olight presented the new M4R at IWA.
Seems to be fairly throwy, but I can’t confirm if it’s an XHP35 HI (I don’t understand German language)
They use a type-C port to recharge it, like on the X7R which is really good news !

"Hey -X3-, do you have a flashlight ?"   "-X3-, can I borrow one of your flashlights ?"

Yeah he said in the video there is a XHP35 (presumably HI) inside.

nice havent seen this yet.. i guess this is the new version of their older M series? looks to be a good thrower if xhp35 and that clear reflector.

I think he said 1000m throw? takes 2×18650 it seems..

...where Frugal meets with Flashlight!

Adaptor for 18650? May be, it can use bigger battery or is it for charging.

Take care of your flashlight and your flashlight will take care of you.

It could maybe use some 21700… 9000mAh !

Looking at the electric connexions of the carrier you will not be able to replace it with cells without the carrier, so larger cells (20700/21700) will not do.

Moreover, is this formfactor a *throw*back (see what I did there? Smile to the Old Skool throwers with a medium size reflector and two cells in series?
Glad I still have my Thrunite Catapult V5 and Acebeam T20 (both with XP-L HI).

A USB port I don’t need, I rather take the cells out and charge them in my Liitokala LI500 and the batt low indication………I have lights that step down and/or start blinking when the cells are low. Works just fine for me.

It looks very pretty tho, with the blue accents, just like my Olight X7.
