Is the Olight SR50 a decent flashlight for $9.95? I saw that Outfitter Country had two left at this price, so I bought them. I know nothing about them and could not find much on here. I just figured that at less than $10, I could not pass them up. I also bought a couple 18650 adapters from Battery Junction, so hopefully I actually receive them at that price.

I was milling around on walmart.com and found the listing. I thought it was a typo. I ordered them for $9.95 each with free shipping, $19.90 total. Nere's a screenshot, just in case anyone thinks I am making it up. It looks like the package weighs almost 6 pounds.

Yeah, thought it was probably a typo and would be cancelled, but it looks like they are on their way. At 6 pounds, I suspect they may even include the metal carrying cases. I bet they spent almost $19.90 just for shipping that 6 pound box.

Way to go on finding such a great deal !

.....not surprisingly at all - it seems that deal is sold out already :)

(I wonder why they had it at such a drastically reduced price, perhaps it is a discontinued model ?)

Yeah, it said it was discontinued, but even so, I find it hard to believe that they really meant to sell them at that price.

£189.95 is a pretty large price difference. So if Lightning Bub decided to list and sell on eBay UK, making sure to put, "As seen on flashaholics for £189.95," that could potentially fund practically any light or lights desired. Trading up, so to speak. :thumbsup:

Pretty much so,no sr51 in their shop,i was curious on that price as it has been reduced now to around £35-£45 due to the sr52 arrival.
