Maglite's third generation gray ML50LX 2C-Cell LED Flashlight maintains the iconic form factor and focusable beam, with three light outputs plus a strobe for signaling, momentary activation, and four pre-programmed function sets designed for specific uses. This version of the ML50LX has a minimum output of 23 lumens, providing ample illumination for reading, digging through your pack or looking for something in the kitchen drawer, while a maximum 490 lumen beam helps you to navigate or conduct a search. A fast-focus system allows the beam to be adjusted from a tight spot optimized for a far throw to a wide flood for lighting large areas with a quick 1/4 turn of the head.

In an effort to limit excessive button-pressing and confusing sequences, the light is engineered with four selectable 'function sets'. Each set has a specific usage in mind, and each has a different set of three pre-programmed outputs. The function sets are described as: General, Outdoor, Law Enforcement, and Tactical.

Built for durability, the aluminum housing has a scratch and corrosion-resistant gray anodized finish, and is O-ring sealed for a weather resistant IPX4 rating. Its deep 'grenade' textured handle provides a sure, slip-resistant grip in cold or wet weather. Weighing in at 12.7 oz, with the two user supplied C-cell batteries, the ML50LX is a reliable light that won't weigh you down.

Maglite ML50LX Reviews

A very, very good and very bright flashlight.

The three actions of the default set (i.e., the flashlight can be set to perform four different sets of actions when the on/off switch is depressed) are what I need and use. Choosing one of the other sets is a bit tricky but doable. Seems to have been a good purchase. I have ordered another.

Great addition to maglite family!

Amazing flashlight. Pushbutton/brightness control easy to use. Very bright. I have held off on purchasing a maglite until now, and am very satisfied with quality.

This Maglite is excellent. I live in a very rural area in a canyon. No neighboring house lights, no sky glow, and night time outdoors can be quite dark. I keep this Maglite in the general mode, and find the mid level of light fine for general outdoor navigating on dirt roads and through timber. When I need to get a better look at some movement in the distance I go to the high power mode. Sufficient for any of my needs. I use the low or eco mode indoors when my sight distance is short. Perfect solution for all my lighting needs, indoors or outdoors. I have no need for the three other modes and have not tried them, but I assume if they work as fine as the mode I use for my needs, they too should be just as good for what they were designed for. The instructions supplied for changing modes are not complicated. All in all, a great light.
