Does anyone happen to know if the Olight SR50 or the SR51 throws farther? I cab't seem to find any comparisons between these two lights.

The SST-50 has a 5mm die which is slightly larger and will not throw as far since the beam isn't tighter... that being said the 51 is an extra 100 lumens so they should more or less look indentical. The XM-L on the 51 is more efficient though than the Luminus SST-50 LED's...

 

An SST-50 has a lot more headroom and can be driven much harder and be brighter at like 5amps in some cases, but an XM-L is not recommended to be pushed beyond 3amps. The module being driven harder will create more heat obviously, but the solid body design of the Intimidator series combined with whatever else Olight implemented in those things should negate the difference. It's a very good light. That should clear things up!

Sorry I had to get nerdy for a sec

Not only does Head-fi make me spend inordinate amounts of money on audio gear, but now I want to buy a badass flashlight.. thanks. This broke college student will be beyond broke next semester.

Yea but when you pull out a 3" flash light from your pocket that is MUCH brighter than a 3-D cell mag light some guy has you can't help but feel good about that biggrin.gif. Well that happend to me last night when a guy wanted to show off his new mag light he got for christmas and I had my tiny Thrunite 1C in my pocket and it owned his. He did beat mine on throw but its not a thrower but my Jetbeam M2S would have trumped him lol. 

 

A good flashlight is worth having around because you never know when you will need one. If you get a light that uses the CR123 batteries then I know that the Surefire brand batteries do have a good long shelf life and I think Chris Himself said the Titanium Innovations batteries are very good and cheap.

I just had this happen the other day...someone had an obscenely large mega light they were shining across a dark room.  I pulled out my miniscule Eagtac D25C and it owned it by a factor of 10.  Before long the fellow was taking notes where to get one :)

You definitely did good, did you look at the Ti model of the RRT as well? I just discovered it existed and now I'm really itching to try one

This is the Thrunite XP-G R5 drop-in in 300 lumen.. almost completely whites out that shelf I'm pointing the light at haha... the XM-L 460 lumen one is great too but the battery consumption at 1.5a is just too much so I went back to XP-G @ 1.0a.

XM-L T6 460/100/15 lumens

Good bang for buck, the whole combination of stuff was about 15cad, though when I got it initially it had some chinese emitter, plastic reflector, and plastic lens, the machining was sloppy, and I had to file some of the edges down a bit. There was also only one o-ring between the body and head, and that was too small, replaced that, and threw one between the lens and head, thing gets noticably warm but havent noticed any extreme tint changes.

 

But yeah, for a cheap dirty single mode EDC thrower at ~150 lumens its not bad.
