The R20 is a rechargeable and compact LED flashlight in Olight’s Javelot series. Utilizing a customized high intensity Cree XP-L HI LED and smooth reflector, the flashlight has a maximum output of 900 lumens and beam distance of 1,030 feet. Like the other flashlights in the Javelot series, the R20 has a larger than average bezel, but unlike the other models, the R20 does not have a stainless steel strike bezel. The lack of an aggressive looking striking head makes the R20 more suitable for a low profile light which might otherwise be considered a weapon in some foreign countries or restricted areas such as airport sterile areas and concerts. The flashlight is powered by (1) 18650 battery. A customized 2600mAh 18650 rechargeable Lithium Ion battery with an integrated protection board in included with the R20. Standard 18650 batteries may also be used, but they will not work with the micro-USB charging system. To charge the R20, an O-ring sealed sleeve is twisted which reveals the micro-USB port. A small indicator light shows when the light is charging, fully charged, and producing low voltage and in need of charging.
The R20 body is constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum with anti-scratch type II hard anodizing. The LED and reflector are protected by a double-sided anti-reflective hardened glass lens. The flashlight is operated by a large tail cap button switch that defaults to the highest of 3 brightness settings when activated. By lightly pressing the tail switch, the light cycles through the other 2 brightness levels (please see attached graphic for run times). The tail switch is also recessed which allows the light to stand pointing upward while resting on flat surface for hands-free illumination. The R20 Javelot also comes equipped with micro-USB charging cable and wrist strap. The R20 is an compact and robust LED flashlight with an impressive beam distance and illumination perfect for discreet EDC and international travel. For a more tactical light with a large stainless steel strike bezel, check out the M20SX Javelot. For an even larger bezel and greater lumen output, the M23 Javelotmay fit your needs.
