Re: Olight M3X-UT Javelot (Dedomed XP-L, 3 or 4xCR123A, 2x18650) Review

Great, thorough review! Really enjoyed it. I ordered one of these a week ago and cant wait to get my hands on it!

Could you tell me what its max useable distance, in your eyes, would be roughly? Sure does a good job out to 390M! I'm wondering to the human eye how far it actually touches. Thanks for you time.

Thanks. kiwikane!

I'm sorry. I don't remember how far the beam touched last time. I am not able to confirm it, due to the rainy seaon now. I will try to see the max. usable distance in my eyes this weekend. :)

Thanks for the review candle lamp

Thanks. light36! :)

Thanks for the reply, and that would be awesome if you would/could let me know about the beam distances. Either way, have a great weekend with it :)

I've noted in another thread on same light. That I lit up buildings at least half a mile away in my city's river valley.

Or, ANSI specs of quarter lux on target at 1000 meters.
Quite a few are reporting similar findings, it throws.

Nice review :)

Runtime with 18650B on mine is ~2:30 hours (high).

That's great. I think 18650B capacity is 3400mAh and its overdischarge protection will kick in around 2.5V. The 2hr 30min runtime seem longer than expect. Thanks a lot for your feedback. Tamaela! :)

11:30am, north of 49th, Aug 2, hot and sunny summer brunch shot.
One light beam is a older maglite,
one is a slightly smaller Olight Javelot.
One is on the ground, other is five feet off ground.
Guess which is Javelot?[emoji1]

I'm sure M3XS is in your hand. Looks like a small sun's hot spot. :)

Thanks for the picture.

Hi kiwikane,

Maybe it's too late for you. Rain kept me indoors for weeks, I couldn't find the best time to see. Anyway I could check the beam distance last weekend. The max. distance looks 580~600m with my naked eyes. I guess I will see longer in distance than 600m, if I'm in the frightening darkness of the open field. Hope this will help you. :)
