Old Lumens Flashlight Builders Challenge 2019 Final Results

This is your chance to select your favorite build in the People's Choice award!

It is now your turn to read through the build threads, judge and select a winner of the whole contest, no categories!

We will award a Wuben TO50R - provided by HCLights and full bragging rights ;) to the voted best build of the contest.


And the winner is: gchart

Well done :THUMBS-UP:


Links to the build threads and some compilation images for the contestants entries:

Thank you for showing your appreciation and taking part ;) :THUMBS-UP:

Across the board the level of builds this year is exceptional. It would’ve sucked being a judge this year. :confounded: And now I get to cast my single vote across all 3 catagories.… hmmm…. I’m going to have to go back and read the threads again before making my decision :cowboy_hat_face:

Voted (not in me!) and subscribed :stuck_out_tongue:

Ohh boy! Whoever is getting that TO50R is getting one of the best flashlights I have ever used. Even flood, High CRI with acceptable R9 and R12,a 4800 mAh 21700 battery and a simple, easy to use UI with the only downside being you have to go THROUGH strobes to electronically lock out your light. The electrical lockout issue is alleviated via mechanical lockout. It even comes with a good nylon case for belt mounting amd protection.

we can vote for ourselves i had no idea, hm,

JK, i knew who i’d vote for before the contest was even over, there is one light that i just friggin love.

Voted, but shit can only pick one !!

My vote went to the build that I find the most under-appreciated by the judges.

Stock-like looks, staggering performance improvement. And all of that thanks to a smart idea.

Voted. Not for me, of course. :smiley:

Voted! For me! Nah. Who are we kidding here? I overpromised and underperformed. One build caught my eye specifically due to how much of a pain in the ass the material is to work with. I think you all can guess who I voted for :D.

I second this :wink:

I do love my Wuben TO50R and my son loves his, but I must be blind or something, as I do not see a TO50R Wuben listed as an available prize. ??? There was a TO50R available in last year’s competition, but for this year the only Wuben I see is the T70 + Extension Tube & Extra Cell; the 9th item in the available prizes list.

It’s on the top of post #2 here for the most voted by the members :wink:

I also didn’t see it at first but re-reading this thread I noticed it :wink:

I need to use that light more :blush:

“There can be only one” :smiley:

(Imagine the “Princes of the Universe” playing the background! :stuck_out_tongue: )

OK, thanks for lifting the fog. I see the TO50R is for whomever gets the People’s Choice votes.

Like I said, I was blind. :person_facepalming:

Aye, right!

Thanks guys! :blush:

I love all my TO50Rs! :innocent:


Come on folks ! Please VOTE !

Only 50 people caring about the OL 2019 challenge ?

I am not asking you to vote for me as i understand that a low power 1 AAA vampyr bedlight isn't something many people here would like, but please choose the one you like the most and VOTE ;)

Its close at the top of the table.
