Arrow Olight M3X Triton [ XM-L2 T6, 3 or 4xCR123A, 2x18650 ] Review

The new M3X Triton is a member of the "M" series from Olight. It's a thrower light with the latest XM-L2 T6 emitter and greater output. It runs on 3xCR123A or 4xCR123A / 2x18650 batteries (with extended tube). [new 13.03.25] The new M3X has an improved circuit from the old M3X (XM-L version) and it does drive harder than old version. [new 13.03.25]







The light comes in a very nice black plastic carry case with cut-out foam. Included in the case was the light with removable clip (attached), holster, extended tube, two spare o-rings, battery magazine, manual and warranty card.
.
.

The hard (type III) anodizing is a matt black and consistent throughout with no chips or blemishes to be found on my sample. Lettering is clear and bright white against the black background. There are large checkered portions on the battery tube. There is nothing on the body works as an anti-roll device.
.
.


The light comes apart into three parts (i.e. head, battery tube and tailcap) without the use of tools.
.
.


The head has a shallow crenellated bezel which is removable. The bezel has a band of squares and the head has a series of cooling fins in the middle of it. There's a large number of concentric ring ridges at the end of the head, which give nice grip to twist the head.
The light has an O-ring between the bezel and lens. There is a spring on the positive contact plate in the head, so flat-top batteries should work fine. Olight says the working voltage is 4.5~13.2V and the current on the emitter on High mode will be 4A around. Numerically 3xRCR123A can be used in the light, but they strongly recommend the protected 18650 Li-ion batteries. I think it's because the light has no overdischarge protection function for batteries and 18650 cell has not only higher capacity but higher discharge ratio. The light does have electrical reverse polarity protection function to protect from improper battery installation.
.
.


The bezel is unscrewed by hand (i.e., without tools). There is an waterproofing O-ring on the front end of the head. You can use the light with the exposed bare emitter if you wish. The M3X is clearly designed to be more of dedicated thrower light.
.
.


The light uses ultra-clear tempered AR coating lens. The bluish purple hue is reflected on the lens. The aluminum reflector has a smooth pattern. Surface finish on the reflector is perfect from visual inspection, and well-centered XM-L2 T6 LED sits at the bottom of the reflector cup.
.
.


The battery tube (or body) is mostly covered in a bold checkered portions with three flat faces machined on where manufacturer name & model name are printed. The stainless steel clip helps enhance grip as well. Grip is good, but not as rough as aggressive knurling. Overall grip is acceptable, while it's a bit slippery when twisting the body with wet hands.
.
.


There is a small sticker on the inside of the body, showing you the correct orientation of the batteries. The anodized clip is removable. It can be removed by unscrewing the retaining ring above it and pulling the clip off. The clip is sturdy.
.
.


Threads on both ends are well machined, with the those on the rear end not being anodized which however allows the light to be locked-out when the tailcap is slightly loosened due to the anodized tailcap threads. The screws threads are good quality triangular-cut. There are double O-rings on the tail end, but one on the head end. My sample has little or no lube on both ends of the extended tube. Threads on either ends on the battery tube mate well with the head and tailcap with no issues of cross-threading or grinding.
.
.


The wall thickness (3mm) of the battery tube is thick, and the light looks sturdy.
.
.


The tailcap switch is a forward clicky. The rubber switch cap is recessed within the tail end. In general, it means the tail switch can be a bit difficult to access, especially when you are wearing gloves. I however, didn't have any difficulties to access, thanks to the crenellated tail end. The light can tailstand. The negative terminal at the tailcap has a good elastic spring covered with a small brass disc to increase surface contact area and have no risk of scratching battery. The switch has a bit stiff tension with average travel and tactile clicking feedback.
.
.
User Interface

The light is turned on/off by the forward tailcap switch (i.e., press for momentary on, click for lock on). You can access two modes at a time (i.e., tighten the head for High mode, loosen for Low mode). You can have Strobe mode by "loosen -> tighten" or "tighten -> loosen" from "tightened state" or "loosened state" within 1 second.

From left to right, Panasonic CR123A, Skilhunt Defier X3, Supbeam L25B, Olight M3X Triton. The above picture shows the basic 3xCR123A's configuration.
.

From left to right, VicLite 18650(2600mAh) protected, Crelant 7G5CS U3, Olight M3X Triton, Armytek Barracuda. The above picture shows the 2x18650's configuration with extended tube.
.
.


The head size & body weight excluding battery of three lights (2x18650 configuration) are as follows :
7G5CS U3 - 64mm / 336g, M3X Triton - 63.2mm / 276g, Barracuda - 64mm / 392g,
.
.


M3X Triton is long light, as expected from a 2x18650's or 3/4xCR123A's powered light since the batteries are arranged end-to-end. The overall size and weight of the light is reasonable for this class, and the light is probably the most compact and lightest 2x18650 light I’ve come across. If you want to carry it and have it feel well balanced, you need to shift to a grip nearer the head. Overall grip is acceptable.
.
.


The light comes with a basic nylon holster with a velcro strap on the head. The light fits in the holster head-up only. It has a loop allows to carry it in horizontal position for belt.
.
.


The included 3xCR123A battery magazine is optional, so you don’t need to use it in this configuration, but it certainly removes battery rattle in case you use it.
.
.


The body tube is wide to take protected 18650 cells, so relatively thinner CR123A cells without the magazine tend to rattle. I didn't experience any issues with shorter unprotected 18650 or longer protected 18650 cells. The CR123A & 18650 fit well in the tube. All types (i.e., true flat-tops, wide and small button-tops) of 18650's work fine. As noted above, the manufacturer recommend you use the protected 18650 cells. Overall build quality is very high.
.

Measured Dimensions & Weight


.
.
PWM



The M3X shows no sign of PWM at any output levels. I do think the light is constant current controlled. I noticed there is no buzzing sound at any levels.
.
.
Runtime



The runtime to fall to 10% of its initial output from 30 seconds after the point the light is first turned on (i.e., based on ANSI FL-1) for High & Low mode is as follows :
1) High mode : 71 min. (1hr 11min)
2) Low mode : 350 min. (5hr 50min)

There are big blips near the end of the run which are from the low-battery warning function of the light (i.e., the light starts blinking for low battery warning at 4.3V working voltage as manufacturer says). I saw the light flashed every around 2 seconds for many minutes before shutting off. The above runtime excludes the flickering for low battery, it includes the constant brightness runtime only.

Runtime performance is very good and flat regulation is evident on all modes with 2x18650 cells. Runtime performance for 2x18650's seems almost consistent with the reported Olight specifications.

The light shows a narrow hot spot and large spill beam for this class. The beam profile is fairly clean. The spill beam region is dim compared to the hot spot. The beam has a cool temperature.

[new 13.03.25] I measured 22,900 lux at 2m distance. This means that peak beam intensity is 91,600cd and peak beam distance is appr. 605meters. It seems to me that the reported ANSI FL-1 peak beam intensity (distance) is quite believable. [new 13.03.25]
