The Olight i5R is a rechargeable version of the best selling i5T EOS pocket torch, retaining the slim, single tail switch design yet offering a higher output of 350 lumens (drops down to 150 lumens after 10 minutes constant use to protect the LED) and utilising a customised 1420 mAh 14500 rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
The included Olight 14500 battery has a USB-C port built into the battery itself and can be removed from the torch to charge. Simply plug the supplied cable into the battery, and the standard USB-A end goes into a USB power source. The light on the battery will glow red while charging is in progress and change to green once the battery is fully charged after approximately 3 hours, 30 minutes. If you run out of charge a AA alkaline or NiMH battery can also be used in the torch, although outputs and run-times will differ.
The high performance cool white LED combined with an PMMA optic lens produces a soft and balanced beam, with a good coverage of light that can reach up to a maximum of 64 metres beam range.
Measuring only 95.4 mm in length, the i5R is the perfect palm size and allows you to easily reach the anti-slip pearled silicone tail switch with your thumb while it sits comfortably in your hand. It also makes it ideal to slip in a coat pocket when going out dog walking or to the pub at night and easily fits in a handbag or backpack for everyday carry.
Designed for simple use, the i5R only has two settings of low and high that are controlled with the tail switch that provides smooth, crisp operation. Soft pressing the button allows for momentary light output that turns off when you release the switch and soft pressing in quick succession changes the brightness from low to high.
Fully press the button until a click is heard, once you have selected low or high with a soft presses, or alternatively when you first fully turn the torch on it will come on in low and then if you quickly turn it fully off and on again within 2 seconds it will come on in high. If you turn it off and on again after 2 seconds has passed the light will default back to the low output.
The 15 lumen low mode is perfect if you need a small amount of light without disturbing others and that is why it is default to come on first. It is useful for reading at night or finding the key hole in the dark.
The body has a unique knurling design with a dense double helix pattern that provides excellent no-slip grip and gives the i5T a stylish look. The detachable dual directional pocket clip can be attached to clothing or a backpack easily from both sides and has been upgraded to a wider clamp and body to produce a sturdier clip and attachment point.
