Our smallest LED flashlight, the compact R5-350-1C+, is still brighter than most bigger flashlights. It fits in your pocket so you will always have it with you when needed.

SKU: R5-350-1C+ Category:


Among our very best high performance high energy flashlights from MF Tactical, this is the revised version of our ultra compact, MF Tactical Model R5-350-1C+, which is a very special and capable police/fire/EMS tactical CREE LED mini-flashlight.  The design challenge for the R5-350-1C+ was simple:  to create the absolute brightest possible flashlight in a body that is both small enough and light enough to use everyday as a keychain flashlight or as a tactical flashlight small enough to stow in your shirt pocket.   What good is it to own an amazingly bright flashlight unless you have it with you whenever the need may arise?  That’s why the key design feature of the R5-350-1C+ was something as simple as downsizing.  Yes, MF Tactical makes bigger and heavier and brighter flashlights, but for its size and weight, the R5-350-1C+ represents the brightest ultra compact light of its quality currently on the market anywhere!  The R5-350-1C+ starts with the efficient R5 emitter by Cree and incorporates it into a compact and lightweight 4.02″ long anodized aircraft aluminum body with a high quality tail mounted on/off switch.

Q:  What’s changed with the revised model?

A:   Our redesign has allowed us to increase the diameter of the reflector and extend the reflector depth by about 50%, resulting in significantly more reflector surface area without drastically changing the outer dimensions of the light.  We also now utilize a more power efficient main control board.  The result:  We have succeeded in getting even more light output from the R5 emitter while decreasing the light’s power consumption by half.  As a result, the MF Tactical R5-350-1C+ is now noticeably brighter than the previous model and with twice the run time of its predecessor.  In addition, our increase in efficiency and redesign of the body of the light has enabled us to eliminate the heat accumulation issue that made the predecessor model hot to the touch after more than 5 minutes of continuous useage.  Now, use your brighter R5-350-1C+ as long as you like without worrying about heat.

The latest change to this model was the addition of the +, which signifies that this light now, in a pinch, will operate on a standard AA battery.  Although not as bright as when running a 14500 li-ion battery, this added feature lets you operate in a power outage situation with standard AA off-the-shelf batteries if you are unable to recharge your li-ion battery.

We have owned and designed a lot of flashlights in our day, but this is the single mode version of the tactical flashlight that Howard THE Flashlight Freak personally carries in his pocket every day because the R5-350-1C+ guarantees that you will always have the right tool with you at the unexpected moment that you will need it the most.  It is the most practical, convenient and usable flashlight we have yet to develop to date, and it just happens to be small enough to use as a key-chain that easily fits in your front pants pocket.

While the price shown for the flashlight is without batteries, just check the box marked “Select Battery/Charger Package” when you put this light in your shopping cart, and you can choose from several packages made up of one or two rechargeable li-ion 14500 batteries and/or a charger.  We also offer a custom ballistic nylon holster.

A lot of work went into the design and development of the R5-350-1C+ to make it brighter and able to run on a standard AA battery.  After kicking the tires on our newly redesigned flashlight, we were quite satisfied by the improved level of real life performance we were able to get out of this little 4″ powerhouse.  All MF Tactical models have one common design theme: Maximum Quality and Maximum Efficiency designed into the flashlight to achieve the highest possible REAL WORLD brightness and performance.  Each MF Tactical flashlight will vastly outperform its segment competitors through intelligent and efficient design.

    I won’t be without one of these lights. I have bought nine of the R5-350-1C+ to date. I have given these lights to all the family members I like, a couple guys at work, and as a Dirty Santa gift. I am still using the first one I bought for my personal light. I keep this light in my pocket all day,every day, using it at work, getting the mail out of the box in the dark, etcetera. The size, reliability, brightness, the ability to use a AA cell in a pinch; everything about this light is perfect. Using it daily, with a one year old battery, a charge will last from two to three months. That is turning it on for a few seconds to one minute, maybe ten times a day. The light is the perfect size for my jeans pocket. It is amazing how often I use it, since it is always with me. I cannot recommend the 1C+ highly enough.

    I own several LED good quality flash lights. I can tell you the R5-350-1C is my go-to light, small enough to carry everywhere, bright enough to light-up an entire attic space. I recently bought a 2nd R5-350-1C because I thought I lost my original…. I recently found the one I lost and I now I own 2 and Im thrilled !! The build quality is excellent, same build quality as my $100 Fenix. This light is great because I can put it in my mouth and use both hands. My older Brother asked me why I always default to this light when I own about 10 different lights, Its because its easy to carry, bright, dependable, feels great in my hand and can take abuse from dropping. Great Light ! In my opinion, the best light on the market in its size class !

    I love mine. Carry it everywhere I go.

    Purchased three for my fellow manufacturing equipment support team, they love theirs, mine does not leave my side. I carry it in pocket regardless how I am dressed and what I am doing, and use it every chance I get. I have looked at your other models, but the light concentration (spot light effect), brightness, size, and cost…I just can see getting a larger flashlight. I am also a professional Dog Walker / Pet Sitter, and I am buying some more, this time, for my (Sub-Contracted) sitters.

    I have made two purchases from MF. The R5-320-1 & the R5-350-1C compact. Love them both. They both blow away the 3-D cell maglite that used to be my standby for emergencies”. By far MF has the best product on the market. Tested both against the Surefire version that is issued to FBI canidates. so much better. Howard – you gotta market your product to the procurement office for the FBI… Not even close

    I used to use Surefire, Streamlight and other brands of lights for my work at nights and railroad tunnel jobs.I bought my first Monster 350-c around a year ago. The old Surefire And Streamlights are still in my bag as I use the MF350.as my sole tool,That is how GOOD these instruments are they last far longer,brighter and run cooler and I can recharge the batteries instead paying for more A123s.Am about to pick up the new T-6 as I write this…Can`t Wait!!

    Looking for a sleak but bright flishlight to for pocket carry and I think i found it in the R5-350-1C

  8. Brad (verified owner)

    As the owner of two R5-350-1C’s I can surely attest to the quality of these little lights. I am somewhat of a flashlight geek myself and after using several of the so called High End flashlights” I now have found what has been missing all along. Thanks for the great product will be ordering something else soon! (T6 1000?) I have already helped sell a few lights for you by talking them up. Of course the deciding factor is usually the output which speaks for itself.

    Very pleased with my R5-350-1C. I have another light on order. One suggestion for website–include a compare models feature or a spec page. It would make selecting a light much easier.

    I have placed an order for (2) R5-350-1C. 1 for me and the other for the wife’s purse. I have a few other pretty cool lights and can’t wait to see this one first hand. First time buyer…will report back..
