The X9R is a culmination of several years of research and development to create the highest-level illumination tool ever built by Olight. We have made countless revisions to the design and technical aspects because we only want perfection and nothing else for this flagship piece. Our vision was to not only create one of the brightest flashlights on the market, but also one of the highest quality flashlights that you can pass down to future generations.

X9R Brightest Flashlight 25000 lumens

The unibody construction is machined out of a massive billet of aluminum that has been Type III hard anodized for maximum scratch resistance. The 25,000-lumen output is produced by 6 brand new XHP70.2 LEDs for maximum flood and throws performance. 

X9R Brightest Flashlight introduction

The large side switch is surrounded by 8 blue LED’s on each side indicating what mode you are on (left side) while the right side indicates a precise real-time battery level depending on what mode you are using and for how long.

X9R Brightest Flashlight 8-level output

 There is a built-in thermal detection chip to automatically adjust output to prevent overheating and a proximity sensor in the front to protect close objects from being damaged due to the hot beam. 

X9R Brightest Flashlight Proximity sensors

The X9R comes in a large hard-shell case that can be equipped with locks and features a pressure release dial on the front to protect the light from high elevation and large temperature changes in transit. 

X9R Brightest Flashlight Case

The X9R comes with a removable battery pack, home charger, car charger, shoulder strap, and retainer ring for anti-roll. We are proud of our years of hard work and dedication to produce one of the highest performance/quality and technically advanced flashlights in the world. We hope you enjoy it.

This thing is so bright you can see the future. It has completely set the bar for every other light I own. I will say the one draw back is if you wear it with the strap, it will pill your shirts, so I just carry it and switch hands now. Believe it or not, it’s my go to light whenever I absolutely need a dependable light.

I was hesitant on the big cash outlay for this light. Now that I have it, no regrets. This thing lights up the world unlike any other light I've seen.

Just received my X9R. I originally saw a prototype at the SHOT Show in January 2016. One look at it and I knew I had to have one. After 2.5 years the final product is dramatically improved over the original prototype. There is literally no other flashlight with the power and build quality of the X9R. In typical OLight fashion the product quality is top notch and the design ergonomics for a flashlight this size are outstanding. All that said, nothing can prepare you for turning it on outside on a dark night. The illumination is unbelievable it literally turns night into day. While this is certainly not an inexpensive flashlight, the materials, the machining and the quality are clearly top notch. You definitely get what you pay for. I highly recommend this flashlight. Handheld Sun might be a more accurate description!

I've got this X9R just a few days ago.I like this design. Probably the best in this class of flashlights. Very good grip.Indicator of battery is amazing! Cooler fans and sensors in front of the head are good for safety .That's very important for using this flashlight.Maybe need more powerful set of batterys in future and I'd like to get spare one.Good job Olight!

I received my X9R yesterday after work. Very nice packaging & even the cardboard box everything was enclosed in was nice. The flashlight is a beast to say the least. The build quality reminds me some what of a tank...could take anything you throw at it within reason. I surveyed the entire flashlight & it’s contents to find no flaws. After charging it up per the instructions nighttime couldn’t come fast enough. Now let me just say i have quite a few flashlights ranging in size & power but, for the larger lights i have this thing blows them away!! I couldn’t help but laugh once i ramped it up to high! There was no more night. It felt like i was going to catch the tops of trees on fire. If the ancient Greeks had this thing they would’ve called it the death ray for sure but, in a good way. Thanks Olight! It was a long wait but very worth it!

Been a fan of OLIGHT for about 3 years now, when I first heard about them. I buy all my lights from them and only them. This X9R is ridiculous, there's absolutely no purpose to this light and it is a giant monster, will blind you for hours if you look into it, and it's a bit heavy. That should be all the reasoning that you need to buy one, I mean this thing is so pointless that's its AWESOME. DO IT!!!! BUY ONE!!!! TODAY!!!!!

We use this for all search & rescues whether in the woods, across a big field or on open water. The output is incredibly bright and it is durable for all conditions. Highly recommend this product.

After pondering it for about 10 seconds I pulled the trigger and bought the most insane flashlight I had ever seen and I have never looked back. It’s a great reason to get back in the woods and with this light nothing can hide, if you have been thinking about it just do it you will be amazed!
