Olight RX3 Seeker?!

I just recived a Olight RX3 Seeker. The problem is that I ordered a R50 Pro. The plot thickens when I can’t find any info about the light anywhere. Have you know anything about this light? Is it a fake? Thanks! /Adam

It’s probably from XXL’s line of Olight exclusives. Sometimes they start selling them through other channels as well. I’ve seen a lot of headlamps that were never officially released elsewhere. So, probably not a fake.

edit: if it had a lower low mode that would probably be quite nice with some nicer emitters such as LH351D…

That’s neat. I’d rather have that than the XHP70 models just because there are better emitter swap options.

Thanks for the answer!
Aha, that’s interesting. Had no idea they did that.
Then I’ll keep it and will look in to changing emitters.
Btw: You don’t happen to know any good DIY-guide for that?

Damn that’s an Olight fact I wasn’t aware of !
I’d love me an RX3 !

Anyway to get them here in the US? I like the triple of the RX3 more so than the XHP of the R50.

I got the rx3 also. Xxl can’t explain why I got rx3 instead of r50 pro. But I think rx3 is better.

I got a reply from XXL.
They said it’s a ”SMU model” and it’s a improved version of R50 Pro.
I can’t compare them, but it’s a nice light. Good throw but also very floody.

Hmmm why don’t olight verify this? Rx3 can’t be found on there homepage. I sent mail to olight but I haven’t received any answer yet.

I got a reply from Olight in Germany (I was shooting questions all over the place..)
They said the RX3 was only sold to Norway. And XXL is a norwegian company.
Anyway, it’s a great light for a good price, so I think you should be happy with it.

After looking at the pics, here is how I see it :
It’s an R50 body (no IR receiver on the side), but with the R50 PRO magnetic tailcap, and a triple reflector.
I’d love to own one, and swap the XP-L for some 219C Silly

They sell it in all the Nordic countries that have XXL as far as I know. Shouldn’t be to difficult to get your hands on one.

Hmmm can’t it in turbo mode anymore. Does it have to be fully charge for that?

well no but once battery is like below 50% or so i think turbo will not work if the volt is too low.
