Here’s our take on the best Fenix flashlights available for 2018.
Fenix’s most powerful headlamp, the HP30R puts out a massive 1750 lumens of light between its spotlight and floodlight. The 1000-lumen spotlight has a maximum range of 663 feet, where it can last for up to 4 hours. At 30 lumens, you can crank out over 83 hours of battery life. The floodlight reaches 200 feet at 750 lumens and on minimum settings can last over 400 hours. It can run off two 18650 Li-ion batteries or four CR123A’s. Intelligent memory function ensures it turns on into the function it was last set to. The HP30R is IP66 rated for dustproofness and waterproofness, and the LED’s have a lifespan of 50,000 hours – that’s over 5000 years.
With 1000 lumens of light and a max distance of 1,017 feet, the Fenix TK20R is a veritable beast of a light. It’s made of aircraft grade aluminum, with an anti-slip and anti-roll grip ring, and an IP68 dustproof/waterproof rating – submersible down to depths of 6.5 feet. There are 4 different light modes and a strobe.
The TK20R is operated by two 18650 batteries or 2 CR123 batteries (in an emergency), and includes an integrated Micro USB port for quick, easy charging whether from your laptop, car or portable. There’s a tail switch for easily flipping the light on and off, and a side switch for toggling between outputs. A best-in-class tactical flashlight for whatever situation you may find yourself in.
With a 1800 lumens of light and a max run time of 20 hours, the Fenix B3C30 is a bright, durable bike light for carving trails as night sets in, or commuting home after dark. It uses Cree XM-L2 LED’s, which have a maximum beam distance of 557 feet when cranked up on 1800-lumen burst mode. At a steady 1200 lumens, one can get just under 2 hours of run time, and up to 20 hours at a low 100 lumens.
The body clips sturdily onto your bike handlebars and can adjust from 0-30 degrees horizontally, or vertically, illuminating the ground immediately in front of the bike as well as in the distance. Works with 22-35mm handles and has an IPX-6 rating; guaranteed to work through heavy rain and mist.
This flashlight packs a whopping 9000 lumens into a relatively small package, making it Fenix’s brightest workhorse of a light. Those 9000 lumens are created by 3 Cree XHP70 LED’s, rated to last a lifespan of 50,000 hours, and powered by a 7.2V/7000mAh Li-ion battery pack. At 9000 lumens, it has a range of 938 feet, with 50 minutes of battery life. The strobe is also capable of 4000 lumens. An OLED display let you know how much battery life is left, output and runtime, and it can be charged by USB. You can also use it as a powerbank to charge other devices.
The Fenix TK72R is built to IP68 standards, meaning it can be submersed down to 6.56 feet for up to 30 minutes. The body is oxidation-resistance aluminum, with HAIII hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish, and the USB ports have been waterproofed.
