I have always wanted a “thrower” style light and something that uses a 26650 battery. Well the Olight R50 almost accomplishes both those goals. It uses an 26650 but and is kind of a thrower. The light has quite a bit of spill too however. Either way I quite like it and it fits in the hand super well. Watch my video below for a detailed review.
My first knife comparison video is something I have been wanting to do for a while. I have been collecting and carting a blade as a daily EDC for a couple of years now. Only recently during a sharpening session I came to the realization that these were such close siblings even though I knew they were. I decided it would make for an interesting video. Please enjoy and look for more knife related videos in the future.

For me I found this light to be a great size for EDC. It’s smaller diameter in comparison to a CR123 light makes it easier to fit into the pocket. This still has the Olight pocket clip which some love and others hate. Personally I like the deep carry ability of it but it does get caught a little when placing back into the pocket. This light can run on 3 different battery chemistries and all have differing levels of performance and run time. Personally I would recommend running this off a rechargeable 14500 lithium based sell. Using this you get the best of both worlds in terms of it’s reliable so costs to operate will be low, and you also have the availability of 600 lumens in turbo mode. On a alkaline or NIHM battery you don’t have the option of turbo mode. Please see my video below for more details.
Overall I really like the light and can recommend it, I really like the fit and finish of this one too.
