The flashlight weighs 120 g. It is generally comfortable to hold for a long time, and it is also easy to carry in pockets or bags. A balanced flashlight has even weight. It can be more comfortable to hold for longer and reduce hand fatigue. The aluminium body of the MR50 has excellent thermal conductivity. This means it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. The HAIII process makes a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum. This makes it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. The MR50 flashlight comes in a stylish black color.

Lighting professionals trust Cree LEDs. Cree LEDs have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The color temperature choice depends on the light's use and personal taste. The designers of the MR50 incorporated an orange peel reflector to enhance the beam. It does this by diffusing the light from the light source. The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features. They allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.

The MR50 flashlight utilizes 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery as its power source. A battery indicator lets users see the battery status. It helps them decide when to recharge or replace the battery. A flashlight's USB charger can be very useful. This is especially true in emergencies. In such situations, access to power outlets may be limited. The flashlight detects when the battery's voltage has dropped to a certain level. Then, it reduces or cuts off the power.

The MR50 has thermal protection feature. These mechanisms track and regulate the flashlight's temperature as it operates. The "8" in the IPx8 rating means the highest level of protection. It is against water ingress. The MR50 has a USB port. It lets you connect and charge devices, such as smartphones, tablets, or other USB gadgets.
