The PL-2 Valkyrie is very bright using a CREE XHP35 HI Led delivering a scorching 1200 lumens.

The light uses two side by side CR123A batteries in common form factor to the industry for a known and comfortable feel. The light features a TIR optic lens providing a 245-meter-long focused beam that is still wide enough to see all around you to eliminate any blind spots in the dark. The heavy duty quick attach and release mounting system allows the light to have a tight hold on your device.

The ambidextrous switch allows the user to continue to use their preferred grip on the device while still being able to activate the switch at a moment’s notice in a high-stress situation.

 The PL-2 Valkyrie is a highly powerful self-defense tool which will blind an aggressor at close proximity indoors while still offering an extremely long distance.

    I bought this light when they were running a sale, and was extremely impressed with it. They re-listed it at the sale price a week later, and I bought another one to have a spare. It was too good to pass up. This is the brightest pistol light I've ever seen. I've had it about 4-5 months, and not one single problem.

    I discovered Olight Flashlights around 12 years ago. My brother and are gun nuts and collectors. Rifles, pistols, shotguns you name it. We both have really expensive taste when it comes to our guns. I never really cared about my EDC flashlight I concentrated more on my weapons. My EDC weapons consisted of a Sig P229r , high end utility knife and a high end back up knife but my tac light was just any cheap small thing I could find. My brother on the other hand would EDC all high end like myself but also carried a $300 tac light. I thought he was crazy. I have no idea how I heard or found out about Olight but I did and decided to spend $50 to $100 on a tac light. I believe my first Olight was a S2R Baton. I instantly became a fan and was-a lumen freak. I have since purchased around 10 or 12 Olight products and ultimately turned my brother into a fan as well. The PL-2 Valkyrie was my first weapons light. I got it on sale for 40% off. I love it. Fits my full size Sigs nicely and is perfect for my shotguns or ARs and fulfills my lumen fetish. I have also purchased the PL mini and mini 2 to fit my smaller carry pistols. I still have every Olight I have ever purchased and they all not only look like they just came out of the box but still perform like new. I am very brand loyal. Do I need another flashlight? No. Problem is Olight loves to tell me when they are going to discount a product from 40 to 50% off for 1 day only. I am writing this review 21 hours before a 50% off sale on the M1T Raider. Damn you Olight.

    Not only was I impressed with the light output and how well it pushes out my brother in laws and friends were as well. We liked the strobing function as well it was so effective it was starting to affect one of them standing behind me. I have not had time to put rounds down range with it yet. I will do a follow up view after I put enough rounds down range to see how well it holds. So far I am happy with my purchase and glad I saw the recommendation from Warrior Poet Society.

    Im very impressed. I mounted it on my XDM for a quick run to see how it looked and felt along with the accessibility of the controls and I am pleased. Very good quality and what a deal (60.00) is what I paid during the deal promo. Definitely wish I got a few more. I plan to run this on my edc once my g19 build is complete

    Got it in the Mail ordered on Monday came in Tuesday finally getting to play with it Wednesday and comparing it to my Streamlight TLR-1s (300 Lumen) Its slightly smaller than the TLR but almost the same size, but man is it bright and I got it on sale worth every penny even at full price just kicking myself that I didn't order more. The only thing I like about the TLR more is that you can do 1 finger manipulation for the strobe, but I will def be buying at least 3 more when they go on sale again. TY Olight keep up the great work

Top notch quality, reliability & ease of operation makes the PL-2 the best pistol light on the market today. Simply put.. Just buy this light & you will not be sorry!

    Amazing! First, way way way brighter than the Streamlight TLR-1s, which i have. Stobe and controls are easy, actually rasier access than the streamlight for my weapon. The quick on/off is amazing, but very tough to mount. Almost returned it for not fitting but seemed like i just had the wrong angle. Can’t wait to take it out for a test drive at the range.

    This is my first pistol light and I really don't see how I'd be happier with another brand. 1200 lumens, nice switches, all kinds of blinding power and I got this on sale! I just want more of these things. This fills my basement with light and checking my property is very easy with how powerful this light is. Great product!

    The only improvement I'd like to see if the 400 lumen mood offered in the newest version of the PL-2 with the integrated laser. I don't always need 1200 lumens and it'd be nice to preserve some battery as well. I would also like to see a pressure switch for this because it's also a great rifle or shotgun light as well.

    I received this light today actually and it seems well constructed. The light is extremely bright. Unfortunately, it does not fit my M&P 2.0 compact 3.6". If you have the standard 4 inch M&P compact or Full size it will fit just fine. I am going to sell this light to a friend and purchase the PL-Mini because I am thoroughly impressed with their quick shipping and quality products at such a reasonable price. The PL-mini will definitely not be the last OLIGHT I purchase.

    I have rarely seen a product this close to perfection -- at a lower price with more light output than several competing models. Furthermore, I hate to give any product a 5-star rating.

    I bought this weapon light for my M&P M2.0 in Dark Earth. The rail mount is a perfect fit and and the finish matches the pistol. It puts out a high intensity beam of light to reach any target within 25 yard range. This light could temporarily blind or disorient anyone looking directly into it within close proximity. Perfect size and weight to balance the front end of my pistol for less recoil and more accurate shooting.

    It is well made using aluminium and the battery compartment has a rubber weather resistant seal. I would not hesitate to purchase another Olight product.

    Fantastic weaponlight, extremely bright with a high quality case. The throw lever is brilliant, and allows you to move it from one platform to another or take it off for a non-light bearing holster. The switches work great, and are on both sides,, and allow for easy activation with a solid click to preven a light AD. For the price, the Valkyrie is a steal compared to Streamlight or Surefire, and seems to be on par (or better) than Steamlight, and you could buy almost 3 of them for the cost of a Surefire.

    I bought the limited edition PL-2 Valkyrie and I can only pick up my jaw off the floor after tiring this thing on! Holy baby Jesus! Do Olight capture rays from the son and concentrate the beam through a magnifying glass!?!? This light is awesome to say the least. My wife loves it mounted on her AR 14.5” setup. She takes the gun outside at night and tunes on the light just set there in amazement. One of the many things she said I have bought that has blown her mind. I highly recommend this to everyone that is looking for a good source of light for pistol or rifle application.

    I bought the FDE version from one of Olight's great flash sales. I did not expect much of this light and for being under $100 I was blown away. The build quality is second to none and the packaging was done really well, they even through in a thank you note and a large, good quality cleaning cloth from the flash sale. The activation buttons are crisp and tactile. The FDE paint is gorgeous. It is also super bright and has a nice, very prominent hotspot, which I like. The light also throws light off to the side incredibly well too. They could get away with charging more but don't, so thank you Olight. All in all, it is a great light. I would highly recommend. Can't go wrong with the amazing price!

    If you have any reservations about purchasing an Olight PL-2 Valkyrie, do this: ORDER ONE ASAP! the first time you light this bad boy up, you will receive (like I did) instant gratification that made me giggle with awe. It's an impressive unit that can truly be appreciated when used. I'm trying not to sound like a fanboy but honestly this product has made me order more from Olight. If I had only found them sooner. Looks like we're gonna have to relamp the fleet... Seriously though this is one impressive product. YMMV

    I bought the PL-2 a few months ago. It's on my Duty G19. Full disclosure; I replaced an old Streamlight M3, so just about anything would be a step up. However, this PL-2 is incredibly bright. It was a fantastic value at 50% off. Worth the cost at full price. A bonus was that it fit in the same holster as it did with the M3.

    Blindingly bright! I purchased one of these for my wife's bedside .45. It puts out a ridiculously bright beam. It has an excellent spot and throw. It looks and feels extremely well made. While it is on the larger size, it is actually pretty light. The strobe function is a nice touch as well. It attaches and detaches easily, and feels very secure!

    A well-built light, it would seem. Lower profile than a similar Streamlight. The beam is a bit too narrow, unfortunately. And one of the buttons is stiff and mushy (the other is crisp and lighter).
    Not a bad light, but I prefer one of my Streamlight HL-1s to this one.

    The Olight PL-2 Valkyrie is, by far, the very best weapon light I have ever utilized. I firmly believe that a handgun carried for tactical or self defense purposes should always have a light on board because I want to be sure of my target. I've used other leading brands, and I can tell you that they do not hold a candle to the PL2. I have one of these on my M&P 15, as well as my M&P handgun. There is so much value in these lights, and they simply cannot be beat. You won't regret getting this light.

    In my review dated 30/04/2018 I stated that the PL-2 would not fit on the rail of the new Ruger PC Carbine. That is true, but a short section of 1/2" riser solves the problem nicely, allowing the back of the light to clear the stock and sling stud. There's no reason to think the PL-2 will be any less reliable than my other Olight flashlights, so I'll change my rating to 5 stars.

    First off, I received my PL-2 faster than I expected!!! Right out of the box the PL-2 fits perfectly on my XD-9 with the Glock bar! Like no wiggle at all!!!

    Controls are easy to use even with gloved hands. In my opinion the strobe function is even more disorienting because of the 1200 lumens.

    Final verdict is I love this light!!! I should have ordered more than one.

    Also, thanks Olight for the show of appreciation.

It work flawlessly. Came with two rechargeable batteries already installed inside the unit. Just had to remove the plastic battery tabs and change out the glock adapter for the 1913 pic rail adapter for my sig p226. Overall very satisfied with the product and customer service.

    Man, I'm not kidding when I say Olight has impressed the hell out of me again. I bought a pl-mini a few months ago and still can't stop saying great things about that light. This pl-2 is amazing! Superb build quality and ergonomics, and this little thing is incredibly bright! I compared it to all my other weaponlights (tlr-1hl, wmlx gen1, wml gen2, c5l, and as I already stated pl-mini) and there's no comparison. The pl-2 desemates any competitor's light and considering the price anyone would be a fool not to buy two of these. Which by the way, I'm kinda kicking myself now for not buying two during the flash sale. I don't work for Olight but everyone I talk to swears I do because I can't shut up about these weaponlights. I also would like to point out the fact that I haven't seen customer service as good as olightstore in a long time. It really feels good to be appreciated as a customer and given more reasons to come back and buy more awesome lights.

    This light is incredibly bright and surpasses my Viridian Green Laser/Light combo on my Glock 17. I would highly recommend this light for anyone needing a light on their weapon. Since this light has two CR123 batteries the LED will stay on much longer than my previous Viridian light.

    Rock solid mount on my Glock, fantastic light output. I have owned all versions of the Surefire X300, and sent back a Streamlight because I did not care for the beam profile. The PL-2 blows them all away with it's light output and the quality is equal to both, if not a little better. The only disappointment I have is the 1913 rail mount, I bought this for my AR-15 and when mounted with the 1913 adapter it moves and you cannot tighten it. There is no slop forward and backward (front to back of gun) but it rocks on the rail and I believe it is because the adapter does not span the full length of the 1913 notch. So unfortunately it has sat in the box until I figure out what I will use it for, so just a heads up if you plan to use it on picatinny rails. Maybe I received a bad one, but I cannot use something that does not mount solidly on the rail. Overall the light is really nice, bight and works well on a Glock.

    I have had this WML for about 6 months now. I use it on a XDM and carry it everyday. I love the build quality of this light and have owned several other weapons mounted lights in the past, and this is bar none the best. It is bright enough I have mounted it on my AR and carried it that way as well. With the quick connect design, it is a very quick and easy transition to take it from a pistol to a long rifle in a matter of seconds. I have been so impressed with how well this light works. Again, this a tool that i use and I don't baby my tools, they are tools of the trade to get the job done and this one was designed to not let you down. Thank you Olight for making such a wonderful Light. I cant wait to see what you come up with next.

    I was debating for a long time on if I should get another Streamlight TLR-1, upgrade to the TLR-1HL or get the PL-2 Valkyrie. Well, I chose this one and I was not disappointed. Noticeably brighter than the TLR-1HL as it should be since it's a full 400 lumens brighter. I am going to see how well it holds up, but have no doubts after being able to feel the construction of it first hand. Looking forward to adding a few more. Now on to find a holster...

    Are you kidding me? If anyone is debating whether to get the Olight PL-1 II VALKYRIE or this one...get this one. In terms of brightness it is a night and day difference. I own both and wish I would of just got this one from the jump. I bought this light for my Glock 19 4th Gen and it fits perfectly right out of the box. Install takes about 2 and a half seconds. In terms of size, This light is wider than the Olight PL-1 II VALKYRIE which may make it impossible for certain people to holster but honestly doesn't hinder the gun at all. Considering it literally takes 2 and a half seconds to dismount and reattach the light to my Glock I can use the light on my rifle which I love but it makes me feel like I bought the wrong flashlight for my rifle since this one is half the size and about 12x the brightness. I will be buying another one for my rifle in the near future when it goes on sale.
