Olight PL-PRO Valkyrie, a powerful and inexpensive gun flashlight

The Olight PL-Pro Valkyrie flashlight
The Olight PL-Pro Valkyrie flashlight is compact and lightweight, but it is very powerful.

In mythology a Valkyrie was a female figure in the service of Odin who decided who could die or survive in battle. This small flashlight for military, tactical, and defensive use can actually make the difference in a specialized use in an operational context.

Technology put to the service of sports shooters or professional operators, thanks to a light with a beam distance of up to 918 ft/280 m, 1500 lumens max brightness output, USB recharge – just to mention some of the main features of this small, but powerful tactical flashlight to be used on both short and long guns. For the latter, the Olight PL PRO model comes with a remote pressure switch that allows for a safe, stable and at the same time fast operation.

The magnetic charger cable has a USB plug at one end. This cable differs from the remote switch one because it has blue markings..

The Valkyrie PL-Pro flashlight can be recharged in a quick and easy way in an hour and a half by connecting it to any PC. A red light confirms that the charge is in progress until it turns green when fully charged. The PL Pro has a runtime of about 90 minutes ensured by a 900mAh 3.6 V lithium polymer battery. The PL PRO is very light, just 3.25 oz/92 grams. It can be quickly installed on any Picatinny rail and also comes with an adapter for MIL-STD-1913 rails, together with the two necessary Allen screws for mounting. According to the manufacturer, the PL-Pro is compatible with most common guns such as GLOCK, SIG Sauer, Walther, Smith & Wesson, CZ, Steyr, Canik, Beretta models.

A versatile flashlight also on long guns

At the base of the flashlight you can see the magnetic charging port and the remote switch cable.

The flashlight, however, also lends itself for use on long guns. We have even tested it on a 12-gauge shotgun, firing heavy slug loads to test its resistance to extreme stress.

The housing protects the flashlight in case of accidental falls, and is IPX6 waterproof.

Impressions were very good. Thanks to its small size, the flashlight is very comfortable and easy to operate. By pressing the control buttons simultaneously, the flashlight enters the strobe mode.
