No. This light will not turn on with any cell other than the proprietary one Olight sells for almost $30.

Sean @ Olight stated that you can use other batteries with this light. You cannot charge them with the magnetic charging system, that's all.

The answers to questions on their product page and word from a reliable source with the light in hand disagree.

Sean tried a button top non-Olight battery and it works for him. 18.2Wh, 3.6V battery.

That is absolute BS! We were told in the FB group that it would work with a non-proprietary battery, as does the Seeker Pro. Not only did I already order the light, I also ordered a non Olight 21700.

If this is the case, I’m done with Olight.

Thank you for posting that! I sure am glad that I scrolled down to read what others have posted.

I was about to purchase for that price. I EDC an Olight. I have two, but if this is what they are doing I may never purchase another.

On Amazon, In the description it just says Powered by: Customized 5OOOmAh 21700 Rechargeable Lithium Battery

I have the Seeker 2 and Seeker 2 Pro. The Klarus 21GT-50 battery works in both.

That’s not true. I just tested my copper M2R and it turns on with my VTC6 button top and Molicel P26A flat top.

Yes, my S2 Pro also does work with all of my 21700 cells, not just the provided Olight cell.

We’re talking about the M2R Pro here, its a totally different light…

I gave my thoughts on why this light will probably not work with a regular 21700 contrary to the Seeker 2 Pro here: http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1578783#comment-1578783

Short version: The battery goes in the other way around than in the Seeker 2 Pro. They seem to use the Plus and the proprietary Minus to drive the light for the M2R Pro. They used the regular Minus to drive the light in the Seeker 2 Pro.

Regarding the regular M2R: This light is constructed COMPLETELY differently, and has an inner tube (like the FW3A or Klarus lights) so it can use a standard 18650.

Yoiks!

If I bought the light from Amazon, tried (several) standard 21700s, and it wouldn’t work, I’d have to return the light as defective. How could I or anyone else know it would only work with a proprietary cell?

I’ve bought several olights. They finally get the neutral>cool white and then get greedy on a $30 battery?

It’s probably only part of the story, but yes. My guess is that it’s also easier to manufacture that way and they save 1-2mm in diameter.

@Olight: I have a regular M2R. I bought it because I liked the UI and that you for once did not opt for a proprietary battery design. The regular M2R is very well executed. It did not fail me once.
But I don’t see the “Pro” in a “tactical” flashlight that can’t even be used with some other 21700s. Nothing “Pro” or “tactical” about this. Won’t buy.

Just seems silly, I purchased just a little while ago, going to be cancelling order first thing in the morning. Don’t care about the charging, but if the light does not work with anything but the proprietary battery that is a deal killer, bad move imho!

Wow, that’s pretty bad. I guess I would understand it if the cell needed wasn’t $30. They wanted to do something that required a proprietary cell? Okay. Still idiotic but, sell the cells for $5 a piece when ordering the light. A guy could stock up on 4 or so. Even though that is still a crappy thing to do. That is next level genius right there.

Still trying to see the logic in posting it on BLF. They should have known the term “proprietary battery” wouldn’t sell many lights here. I am a gun guy as well. CZ is one of my favorite makers. If CZ told me they came out with a new 9mm pistol but it will only shoot their ammo at 6 times the money of say, Winchester ammo, I’d start buing Hi-Point instead. Okay maybe not Hi-Point. Wink

Edit: Question. Will Olights proprietary cell only be able to be charged by the magnetic charging dohicky?

The cell looks to be the same as provided with the Seeker 2 Pro, in which case I can verify that with a small neodymium magnet placed on the (+) end it can indeed be charged outside of the light.. You obviously still must use caution because it can quite easily be shorted.

If it is like the 18650 it will charge in any charger that will accept its physical size. Even if they were less then $30 I’d think twice, I have two of the 18650 cells from them, both have only seen a cycle or two, and one will not run turbo on my m2r, the other runs it for a few seconds, I assume voltage sag as the light is fine with different bats.

I will say I’m very pleased with customer service, emailed them for confirmation of proprietary only, asked they cancel my order if correct. Answered my email in maybe 30 minutes, confirmed correct, asked if I still wanted to cancel, I confirmed immediately. About an hour later I had the refund.

I’m sad though, would have liked the light for my rifle.

On a different note:

5 or 6 people in the Olight Facebook group report the light not turning on – after charging, the status LED in the switch turns green but nothing happens if you try to turn the light on.
According to the video M4DM4X posted, every single light is tested before shipping out (see http://budgetlightforum.com/node/69795) – if that really is the case it would mean that the lights basically die after they at least had worked in the QA.

From what I have heard, Olight has excellent support, so this probably won’t be a big issue. Just something to be aware about if it happens to you.

Edit: More people report of duds on Facebook. Count increased to 5 or 6.

People did and the light seems dead. It’s a few more now, I would guess around 8-10 in that group. One report where the light worked for a little while but then died after the person started to use the tail switch more often. That person also crosstested it with the battery from the Seeker 2 Pro without luck. Not sure what’s going on.
