Olight PL-MINI 2 Valkyrie Weaponlight Product Review

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.
