Olight Warrior Mini

So, this is a new release from Olight!

As far as I could tell from the video, it is thermally regulated, not pre-established stepdowns.

18650 battery, 1500 lumens, side switch + tail switch (with 2 different settings), CW emitter (of course)

I am a M2R Warrior fan and this seems a nice evolution, specially being compact as the S2RII Baton.

How do you feel about it?

I am interested, when it’s on sale. It’s cold white of course and proprietary battery.

Bonum commune communitatis.

I wish it had the clip on the tail for a more deep carry and fast draw’n‘click, but maybe it works well this way too!

Ehh.. i own one olight and not excited to buy another. Sale is an OK price, but I like my kr4 plenty. I’m sure it’s a nice light but the battery situation turns me off

Now a copper sIIr2 would really peak my interest. Or a 21700 sIIr2 that could take 40t’s and id BE IN.

I like this light a lot and I’m gonna buy it, the only annoying thing is that it seems to require a proprietary battery to work.
The older Olight models can charge only their proprietary battery, but they work with regular 18650s as well.

I’m also fan of M2R and Pro and also Seeker2 Pro but only for one reason, all of them are upgraded to 90CRI standard.

I don’t think “pimped S2 Baton” has temperature control but time regulated like all Olights.

Since Martin has one he can confirm that.

Also, being 5050 format it won’t see any normal use beside M2R (my case) just because of lack of HI CRI 5050 emitters. Installing 3535 emitter (modding) will produce ugly. Eam cause of TIR designed for 5050 footprint. 
Maybe with M1R (announced at US FB group) might get my attention but this one for sure will not.

I was using the information told in the video Wink
But if possible, Martin, it would be nice if you could confirm that! Thumbs Up

I would say to start on 2m30 till 3m20, where he presents the specs.
I was listening again and guess I may have misunderstood his words, when he was presenting the “stepdowns”.
His words are “Now, that is thermally regulated, so depending on how hot the light actually gets, that’s how fast it will start to drop down”.

Checked. He dows say “depends how hot it gets it will stepdown” BUT packaging cleay shows 4min on 1500lm then stepdown AFTER 4 min to 500lm for 200min...

I think presenter is not familiar with these words and terms and the mean. 
But Martin, again, can confirm this 100%

Yeah, that was what I noticed on my second “hearing/seeing” on the video. So now the doubt has increased in me.

Damn those runtimes are crazy good for an 18650. One of the most efficient 18650 lights I’ve ever seen. Olight really makes the most efficient drivers in the industry. But unfortunately Olight is too stubborn to provide neutral white and high cri options with “good tint” (non green). I’m probably going to skip this despite the amazing performance and aesthetics.

Does anyone know what emitter they use?

That info is absent from the manual Oops I really have no clue, but…maybe it is an SST-40 after seeing the image after the destruction test:

its an SST40 LED Wink


530 Lumen for 3:20 hours
170 for another hour
then faded down to 6 Lumen and LVP kicked in after 5:45 total time

It was mentioned by one of “Olights”. Looks like he got his fingers slamed and now his post is gone.

as far as i know and tested all Olights have a timed stepdown, but you can reactivate turbo as long as the cell voltage allows and the over temperature protection does not kick in 

the guy in the OP video is not correct with "1500 for 4 minutes and then lower to 500"
i had max 45 °C and 1:40 mins to drop under 1500 (max was 1650)
level @531 reached after 4:30

Yeah, ZL still beat the crap out of Olight. Ugly as hell but way better electronics.

Martin, thank you so much for the information about this light!
I am still thinking of it due to the dual swiches and UI, as I’ve been looking for a light like this for a while (smaller than the M2R and similar features).
Will you have any deal for it or the current Olight deal is the best one currently? Wink

ZL beat the crap out of Olight in terms of emitter selection but Olight is miles ahead of Zebralight in terms of driver efficiency. The Olight H2R with 4000K XHP50.2 70 CRI has an efficiency of 135lm/w where as the Zebralight H600fc MKIV w/ 4000K XHP50.2 90CRI only makes 89lm/w. The difference in efficiency between the two emitters is 20% max, so Olight is obviously much more efficient. Also the more recent Olight Perun with the XHP50.2 can do 500 lumens for 4 HOURS!!!! Olight is king of driver efficiency.

The thing ZL drivers are really good at is the ultra low moonlight modes that can last an eternity, which is great if you ever get trapped in a cave.

Olight does not offer HI CRI emitter options. But the comparison above is to show the difference in electrical efficiency between Zebralight and Olight drivers. Both use 4000K XHP50.2. The Zebralight 90CRI is at max 20% less efficient than the 4000K XHP50.2 in the H2R. So if you do the math to account for the CRI difference, (135lm/w) / (1.20 * 89lm/w) = 26.4% more efficient. But the more recent Olight Perun, which is an upgrade of the H2R can do a whopping 500lumens for 4hrs, which is MUCH more efficient than the H2R and is MUCH MUCH more efficient than Zebralight.

But as I mentioned in multiple posts above, I do not disagree with you Olight sucks when it comes to CCT, CRI, and tint, which is what is preventing me from buying many of their otherwise attractive lights.

the thing is what Dan Thor said multiple times and many others, 90CRI emitters sucl at efficiency. They will kill any efficiency race. Considering ZL it’s only 20% worse than Olight 60-70CRI i’d call it perfect efficiency.


I’m moderate O fan and i do have only few models. Knowing they are great built and they could be better but they choose poor emitters claiming high efficiency which only color blind people find it usefull and painting their lights in different colors makes no sense. 

No the Olight H2R is 135lm/w / 89lm/w = 51.7% more efficient than the Zebralight. If we assume a 20% difference in efficiency between 90CRI and 70CRI, which is a conservative assumption without knowing the exact flux bin, the Olight H2R is 26.4% more efficient than the Zebralight. However, if we compare the Olight Perun, which is the updated H2R, it is another 20% to 30% more efficient than the H2R, which means Olight drivers are much more efficient than Zebralight drivers, except maybe at really low moonlight levels which Olight doesn’t even offer.

Also one thing to note is that my H2R 4000k is much rosier than my Zebralight’s 4000K 90CRI and usually rosy means low flux bin. High flux bins are usually higher DUV (greener tint). In fact the H2R is the only really good rosy NW Olight I own. The rest are all CW or greenish tinted NW.

I don’t recall Olight ever claiming high efficiency. It’s just that we flashlight nerds studying numbers from test results noticed it. What Olight does claim is high reliability.
