The Olight R50 Seeker is a compact rechargeable LED torch that produces an impressive 2500 lumens on the highest setting.

Featuring a Cree XLamp XHP50 LED, the R50 combines this with an orange peel reflector for the perfect light combination of distance and width, offering a maximum beam range of 297 metres.

The multi-function side-switch cycles through three brightness modes, with a double click for turbo access and a triple click for strobe. The switch also incorporates an LED battery power indicator, which glows red when the battery runs low.

The R50 features a lock-out function, so you don't have to worry about accidentally activating the light in your pocket or bag. A built in memory function automatically returns to your last brightness level from the off position.

Easily rechargeable through the built in micro USB port that is unobtrusively located on the end cap, you'll be able to charge the R50 just about anywhere thanks to the included USB cable and USB mains adaptor. A car adaptor can be purchased separately on our website, please see the panel down the right hand side.

If you've been looking at this torch thinking it will fit your needs, go ahead and buy it
Sunday, 18 March 2018  | 

Will update after some good usage if views change.

***Presentation***
As someone who appreciates good quality tools and gadgets presentation of the item and the box it comes in adds to the experience. Everyone likes unwrapping a nicely presented box and pulling the items out, let's be honest the only things that should come wrapped in paper are fish and chips. The R50 comes in a nice box with a snappy closure. Upon opening the box has nice little tags to pull out the accesories. Yes you will only do this and use the box a handful of times but it makes you feel like your opening a quality product from the outset.


***Build Quality***
Out of the box the threads are nicely greased. Looks to be your typical hard wearing anodisation. It feels like a high quality product in your hand, on close inspection can't see any imperfections from manufacturing process.
I like the blue rim goes well with the black, the glow in the dark head is a nice touch.
Time will tell on how it holds out, doubt I'll be disappointed.


***Size and feel***
I wear a large man's glove and this torch fits nicely across palm of my hand, the diameter of it makes it nice to hold in your hand. I find this really comfortable to hold in an underhand grip where as my slimmed Fenix PD35 TAC I tend to have to carry overhand to be comfortable.
Lanyard included is better than usual with adjustable size likely comfortable upto around a 10inch wrist. Knurling looks good not sure how much grip it adds. People complain about the button being hard to find, I was wearing your typical cheap wool winter gloves and found no problem finding or using the button, it's got cutout on the head your thumb fits in, really cant see the struggle.


***Mode settings***
Firstly I won't include beam shots or assess how accurate lumen reading are, don't have the technology to test or accurately show, plus 2500 or 2400 lumens, does it really matter?
The torch gives a good nice wide field of view not far off 45 each side, while also having a good hot spot. Found on low can comfortably see the area 30 meters in front of you as your walking. It's snowing today so beam shots wouldn't be that great maybe another time.

Nice range of modes that are easily accessible, including memory. Comes with a turbo mode for extra burst of power for few minutes and strobe, some people find strobe useless personally think it would be useful for catching someone's attention at a distance.
Only thing missing would be a sub-10 lumen mode or moonlight mode, could be easily added but really are you carrying this for low brightness modes, probably not.


***Batteries and charging***
The R50 uses a properitory battery with both terminals on the same side which allows it to be charged in the unit but not in a external charger. Personally the ability to charge in the torch outweigh this especially as it's micro usb.
The micro usb port is sunken into the unit by around 4mm and is covered by a seal, this should lead to a long life. Think of most phones,charged 365 times a year for at least 2 years and it's the cables that give up not the port! Can't see the port being a problem anytime soon.
If long term the battery stopped being manufactured that can be charged internally or micro usb port breaks you could always use traditional batteries charged externally. With a 5 year warranty would hope this wouldn't be an issue any time soon, time will tell.


***Final words***
If looking for a torch that is effective for checking on your property, walking the dog or searching an area where you want to know what's under foot than this is for you. The micro-usb rechargeable makes it easily to recharge and also makes it very user friendly, could happily ask anyone to put this in on charge and they could do so safely, wouldn't recommend asking someone unfamiliar to use an external lithium battery charger.

Excellent Torch

Ive already got an Olight so this is the second purchase. We caravan a lot and have two dogs so alway have to take them out evenings and last thing at night, so torches are necessary. These powerful little torches are extremely good with different modes. The recharging batteries are also useful. The R50 seeker with 2500 lumen can also be a protection against unwanted attention. I would certainly recommend this torch.

The Olight R50 is second to none. It is VERY bright. The construction is robust and works very well in all weathers. In my opinion this is a specialist torch and is too higher spec for general use but whatever you buy it for, it is great.

The R50 torch is a superb torch, well made and performs well. I found the colour a little yellow and so criss-crossed the lens with a blue permanent marker pen a couple of times and now it is white light.
