- Provides 600 lumens at maximum brightness
- The beam can reach distances of 100 meters
- Lightweight and compact
- Attaches to Glock or Picatinny sized rails
- Rechargeable battery with USB cable included
- Adjustable rail
The Olight PL-MINI 2 Valkyrie Weaponlight is a small but powerful choice to add to your weapon. It emits 600 lumens over 100 meters of distance, which is ideal for those difficult situations when you need to see far away areas.
It also works great for wilderness survival, as it has a rechargeable battery. It comes with a magnetic USB cable that allows you to charge it up, and saves you from having to replace the battery when it runs out.
In terms of compatibility, this flashlight can attach to either Glock or Picatinny sized rails, and is easy to attach. It comes with a quick-detach lever, and takes about five seconds to mount onto your weapon, with a secure lock. This is convenient for survival situations when you need to use your weapon unexpectedly. You can also adjust the sliding rail back and forth, to help position the light in the best spot for you.
The light will blast at full brightness of 600 lumens for up to 3 minutes, and will then slowly reduce in brightness to prevent overheating. While this amount of time for maximum intensity may be sufficient in some cases, it means the light isn’t the most reliable for use in longer instances that require self-defense.
Let’s shine some light on the Valkyrie!

Olight PL-MINI 2 Valkyrie Weaponlight Product Review
The Olight PL-Mini Valkyrie 2 is manufactured in the United States by Olight. We were fortunate enough to get the newest version of the Valkyrie before it was made available to the public.
The shipping took two days and the package was properly packed to ensure that the product and it’s box wouldn’t endure any damage on the way. The product comes in a nice box with a charger (just the cord, no base), instruction manual, allan key tool, the light and an extra baggie for saving screws or spare parts.
Olight provided us with the OD green colored model. No complaints there, we love green!
Upon picking up the light for the first time, the first thing I noticed was the weight. This is a very dense piece, suggesting that there is a serious battery inside. It also immediately gave me the impression that it would be able to withstand a beating or even being dropped multiple times. No I didn’t see how many drops it would take to do this light in because it’s such a good light that we are going to be adding this to our personal collection.
The adjustable slide system is expertly made and extremely easy to use. Takes about 5 seconds to fit this light onto your rail system and then set it to the proper distance so that your index finger can reach the on switches while outside of your trigger guard.
This light is ambidextrous so whether you’re a righty or lefty (I’m a lefty and we have a harder time finding products built with us in mind, thanks Olight) you’ll have no issue using this light.
There are two modes of light, consistent or momentary. The light switches are pressed down by your index finger to activate the light. One click will turn the light on permanently until the next click turns the light off. To momentarily use the light, hold the switch down to activate the light and then release your finger from the switch to deactivate the light. We imagine this being extremely useful for law enforcement.
When you turn this light on, you’re changing an entire environment. For a weapon light, this light is so bright that we are extremely surprised that it is only 600 lumens cause it is completely blinding. I would not want to have this light pointed at me.
One of my favorite things about this light is it’s charging system. This light charges using a magnet that you can see in the photos. The coolest thing about this is that the light it’s self is a really strong magnet.
We found the Valkyrie to be compatible with most rail systems adding to it’s convenience.
After 2-3 minutes of continuous use, the light will get pretty hot but not enough to burn anyone. After 3 minutes of consistent light, the battery will automatically reduce the output of light to prevent overheating.
The total charge time with a completely dead battery is exactly 60 minutes. The charger cord light up and is red when the battery needs to charge and will turn green the battery is fully charged, taking all of the guess work out of knowing how long to charge the battery.
In the end, we stand behind this product.
The manufacturers designed this light with speed, defense and survival in mind. I will be ordering more of these for the rest of my handgun collection.
This weapon light is sure to deter any threat and it will definitely give you the upper hand as anything you point this powerful light at will not be able to see a thing and will be extremely uncomfortable. This gives you an intense advantage as you will have full view of your surroundings and any potential threats.
Overall, the Olight PL-Mini Valkyrie 2 is hands down our favorite weapon light here at Survival Front and that’s why it is now, our choice for you.
Thanks for the read, now go check out the amazing prices on the Valkyrie!!
