The M2R is a larger, high-powered, tactical flashlight that uses duel fuel (two CR123s or one 18650 battery), has a magnetic charger coupling, and machined aircraft aluminum body. The M2R can be used as an EDC light but it is at the upper limit of what I would want for EDC. The length allows the flashlight to be a good tactical choice for those with very large hands.
The M2R would be a good choice for a larger everyday carry (EDC) flashlight.
- Turbo beam of 1,500 lumens with almost 2 hours of run time
- Low beam of 15 lumens with 70-hour battery life
- Aluminum construction with front tactical bezel with mild crenellation
- Larger but still concealable
- Large enough to extend across the palm of those who have large hands
- Instant strobe mode using tail switch
- Sleeve required when using CR123 batteries.
- Complicated user interface but easy to use in normal light modes.
- Larger than I prefer for a pocket EDC light.
These are minor disadvantages and should NOT dissuade you from purchasing this light.
I had the chance to briefly play with this light and I was pretty impressed. I liked the way that I could instantly access the strobe mode using the tail switch. I like the dual fuel option and the magnetic charger coupling. The M2R is larger and it is at the very top limit for what I would use for EDC.
