I wouldn't say this one is EDC but its small at less than 5.5 inches. Battery will run 50 hours at 50 Lumens. Cheapest price I can find and I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on this but I want to check what people think here first. This is the silver bezel version which I prefer, the blue bezel comes with the USB wall plug but that is £10 more and I figured most people would already have those.

why would you need to spend this much on a torch, where do you live, North Korea?

Well its good for everday use plus when you need to really light a place up. Its a high quality torch and all the reviews I've seen for it are excellent.

Everyone has a mobile phone and probably sometime or other will use the flashlight function, but yeah, I know what you mean, I have these CREE E17 @£8.59

Also the emitter is the newest extreme high power LED from Cree XHP50.

Olight's are great torches .
I've got an Olight SR52UTvn which throws a narrow beam over a kilometre and is also usb rechargeable.
Great for winter months taking my dogs for a walk through Thetford forest . It's Like a 1000m light sabre.
They also have a strobe function to disorientate any would be attackers when shone in their eyes.
The R50 seeker has higher lumen output but doesn't throw a beam half as far , which means it has a brighter wider spill .
Lot of coin for a torch admittedly but i wouldn't do without mine now.
I imported mine from here .

That's what I like about the R50, wider spill but still has a nice hotspot thrown out there. Its a compromise between the two that I think works very well. You can see more in your peripheral vision with the R50.

fancy a small powerful torch but dont fancy spending £80 which i would probably rarely use too. Any tips on cheaper alternatives which are still very powerful? like sub £30?

Convoy S2+ for around £15 is quite a popular choice at the budget end :)

I must admit i'm tempted to get one , i normally go for a beam thrower but like the look of this one . I know some must be thinking "how many torches does a bloke need fffs ?" . I've got 4 decent ones so definitely a bit of a flashlight freak !
That website i posted is worth a look as the bloke who runs it takes standard models and mods them to increase performance further.
I didn't have to pay any import charges either.

You won't get this output from a quality torch for under £30 but try looking at some nitecore models which are very good and reasonably priced.
If you want tiny tiny tiny & bright, the fenix e15 2016 will chuck out up to 450 lumens with rechargable 16340 batteries.

I'd get the dogs to take down any attacker and hit them over the head with a £20 maglite!

Well the dogs are big labradoodles ( one of them very big ) so might put them off a bit .
As for taking down any attackers i'm not so sure they have it in them :D
I do have a 3 cell maglite that would be a useful cosh actually though. X)

great build on all olight, but crap ui and driver. For 99.99999% you will be running this at 300lm. Better of getting a torch, that will deliver 1000lm for a good solid cpl of hours.

something like that, I know slightly more then £30 but well worth it if you don't need it right away keep and eye on it as prices varies also maybe flubit might give a better deal?

Good build quality and decent output, shames it's not smooth reflector. Best to change the split rings on the shoulder strap, the one supplied are pretty weak. Got a cpl of 5200mah 26650 keeppower.

Would you recommend the 26650 over the 18650 then ?

5200mah vs 3400mah. But the 18650 work just fine, just shorter run time.
