Marauder Mini High Lumen Flashlight with Flood, Throw, RGB-Finally in ODG [Giveaway]
When the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight was released late last year, it quickly became a huge hit with fans and enthusiasts. In keeping with its big brother, the very popular Marauder 2, the Marauder Mini is a compact powerhouse of a light that also gives the user the unique ability to toggle between a spotlight or a massive flood light with the simple flick of a switch. When it officially went on sale, the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight was offered in three color options - a beautiful Midnight Blue, a bright Orange and standard Black.
If you are #OTeamODG and were keeping your fingers crossed for an “olive drab green” version, well your wish is finally being granted. Olight is now offering the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight in an awesome ODG color with all-black accents. This ODG version should fit very well in anyone’s ODG collection and will look right at home as a standard everyday carry light. Whether you simply love all things green, or if you tend to favor more of the tactical look of ODG, this ODG version of the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight is sure to please.
Performance of the Marauder Mini High Lumen Flashlight
Don’t let the name “mini” fool you! The only thing “mini” about the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight is its size. As for performance, this light packs a huge punch and is impressive in all modes. One of the best features is the ability to toggle between the floodlight and spotlight modes with a simple flick of the switch. In turbo, the flood mode will provide an astonishing 7,000 lumens of area filling light for up to 2 minutes before stepping down to 1,600 lumens for an additional 160 minutes.
Flick the toggle up for the spotlight and you now have a beam with a throw that can reach a mind blowing 1,968 feet! This is thanks to the 90,000 candelas of beam intensity while in spotlight mode. This beam distance is truly incredible and is identical to the maximum distance achieved by the Javelot Mini long range EDC flashlight.
Comparing the Marauder Mini to the Marauder 2
The shape of the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight is the same as the Marauder 2, only it is about 15% smaller and over 38% lighter in weight. Like the Marauder 2, the Marauder Mini has a textured silicone grip to provide a more secure way to hold it and it also includes a lanyard hole for additional carry options. The ODG mini also includes a black strike bezel.
The Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight maintains the unique toggle switch and rotary knob as its bigger brother, which is fantastic! The rotary dial area includes a battery indicator as well as an output indicator, allowing you to quickly select the desired brightness via stepless dimming. Using the switches is intuitively simple, especially thanks to the ergonomic layout and placement.
So, is the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight just a pint-sized version of the Marauder 2? Actually no. For all the similarities, the Marauder Mini also improves on some features and even adds new features, making a great light even better and more functional. Because it is smaller in length and diameter, and significantly lighter to carry, the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight is a much better option for everyday carry.
The round spotlight on the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight is much more appealing to the broader group than the oddly square spotlight of the Marauder 2. This was a very welcome improvement when the Marauder Mini was released, not that there was anything wrong with the square beam of the Marauder 2, it was just not as widely accepted as the typical round shape.
Unlike the Marauder 2, the battery of the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight is replaceable, adding a degree of comfort to those who worry about the battery of the Marauder 2 once the warranty period has expired. Charging the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight is also different than the Marauder 2 as the Mini uses Olight’s magnetic charging cable system instead of the USB C charging port present on the Marauder 2. Whether one is better than the other is more of a matter of personal preference. However, the Marauder 2 can double as a power bank for charging portable electronic devices thanks to the USB C port. The Marauder Mini loses this feature as a result of the MCC charging change.
The Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight includes three additional LED color options - red, green and blue. The Olight Fryer was the only other Olight flashlight to offer the ability to switch between colored LEDs. However, to have these options incorporated into the Marauder Mini high lumen flashlight with an already impressive floodlight and spotlight mode is truly unique and very much appreciated.

Typical Use Scenarios for Colored LEDs
The red-light mode is a great option for those wanting to preserve their night vision but still be able to illuminate the area around them. This is especially useful for pilots needing to illuminate the inside of the cockpit to see their instruments but don’t want to ruin their night vision with a bright white light.
A green light is typically favored by hunters as they claim that the green light attracts deer and other wild game. Additionally, it is believed that a green light will not scare away fish, deer, and other game like a bright white light will.
Blue LEDs are also used by police and crime scene investigators as well as hunters because it will make blood and bodily fluids visible that are usually invisible to the naked eye. Blue light is the only light that can cut through fog, which is why it is widely used for fog headlights.
