Fenix keeps surprising us this week with their incredible releases and today we're going to talk about another one. Believe it or not, it's not the last one, but it's still super exciting because it is an extremely powerful searchlight. We're going to be looking at the LR50R 12,000 lumen searchlight. So let's just dive into the features.
12,000 Lumen Searchlight
How many times do you think we can say 12,000 lumens before it stops sounding impressive? I don't think it's possible. This is a beast of a flashlight. With any extremely high powered flashlight, you can expect a larger form factor. And yet, surprisingly, the flashlight is not as big as it could be. It's less than six and a half inches in length with a head diameter that is less than three and a half inches. The body diameter is also less than two and a half inches so even though it's a larger flashlight, we're still very impressed that it's still quite compact for the amount of power it delivers.
The LR50R features a really nice beam that's wide but still has a hot spot giving you the best of both worlds when it comes to beam patterns. The LR50R features an astonishing maximum beam distance of 950 meters, perfect for a searchlight.
The LR50R is similar to the Fenix LR40R but one major difference is the LED situation. With the LR50R, it features four LEDs tucked into their own little reflectors which gives it a balanced beam with a wide angle as well as a hotspot. The LR40R on the other hand features 19 LEDs, one in the middle and the other 18 circling the edge. So that's one major difference between these two search lights that we want to point out.
Multiple Modes = Versatile Function
Fenix designed the LR50R to be a multifunctional searchlight which means it's built for versatile situations. Operating it is simple with its dual side switches and all it takes is a single click of the functional switch to get a momentary turbo meaning that turbo is always at your fingertips.
The LR50R also has two modes - a General Mode and a Functional Mode. The Functional Mode is more for emergency situations and particularly when you need to use the turbo output more than anything else. In the Functional Mode, you'll only be able to access the turbo of 12,000 lumens, strobe, and SOS.
The General Mode is exactly how it sounds where it's more for general use. In this mode, you're able to access six total brightness levels ranging from 50 lumens to 12,000 lumens. Switching modes is easy and having both modes makes this flashlight work for you no matter the circumstance. With the LR50R you can choose which mode is better depending on your situation.
Rechargeable Fenix Flashlight
The LR50R uses four 21700 lithium-ion batteries. That is a whopping number of batteries, but the good news is that this searchlight is rechargeable. It has a USB Type-C charging port which allows for 4A fast charging. Fenix boasts that the LR50R can charge fully in 4 hours. Charging 4 batteries in 4 hours is pretty impressive, especially considering they're 21700 batteries which have more energy. Also, in an emergency, the LR50R is able to run on one to three 21700 batteries.
Another really cool feature of this light is that it can be used as a power bank. So if you need to charge up a USB device, you can use your LR50R to give it the extra bit of energy it needs. In an emergency situation, the power bank really comes in handy.
And here’s another cool aspect of the LR50R we want to point out - the battery indicator. The indicator is four lights located just above the switches. Based on the number of LEDs that are lit up, you can tell how much battery power you have left in this light. When it comes to a searchlight, a precise battery level indicator is a must. Fenix has created an accurate and reliable indicator to determine the status of the battery so that you always know and can plan your flashlight usage.
The LR50R is a hefty Fenix flashlight with some hefty features. When it comes to searchlights, the LR50R is as impressive as they come with that high output of 12,000 lumens, the momentary turbo, and the multiple modes. Not to mention Fenix went above and beyond by giving it a USB-C charging port and a power bank function. Make sure to check out the Fenix LR50R searchlight.
