Would you like to feel as though your could carry the sun in your hands at times? Well, the new Fenix LR40R Rechargeable LED Flashlight will give you that feeling of empowerment. Fenix is known for producing the highest quality lighting products worldwide…from lanterns to headlamps to flashlights. The new Fenix LR40R is just the latest in their product line up, and they took it to the level level of output.
The trend in lighting is “small, bright, and rechargeable.” The Fenix LR40R checks all the boxes in this area. At the highest setting, you get an unbelievable 12,000 lumens! If you can’t imagine how bright that is let this put it in perspective. The maximum beam distance at 12,000 lumens is 2,536 feet. Ladies and Gentlemen, that is a whopping seven football fields. So to say the LR40R is ideal for search and rescue is an understatement. Other industries ideal for this type of flashlight are industrial inspection, security, farming, hunting, extreme camping, and just about anywhere you would need to secure your surroundings. It could even be for the game day contest of “who has the brightest flashlight.”
With 12,000 lumens you would expect the light to be humungous. Well, gone are the days of grandpa’s flashlights that were 18 inches long and 75 lumens. The Fenix LR40R is a mere 6.06 inches in length with a 3.15-inch head. So carrying the lighting is extremely comfortable. This lightweight flashlight is really two flashlight types in one. You can set the beam for a flood pattern or a spotlight pattern depending on your environmental needs. All adjustments are easily done using the two stainless steel side buttons.
We know you are probably saying you seldom need such high lumen output. The LR40R is extremely versatile for those close-quarter environments. The lowest setting is the Eco setting at 50 lumens. This setting provides 92 hours of output. Yes, 92 hours so field work won’t require recharging of batteries when away from a power source for that long. The flashlight ships with a rechargeable battery pack or you can operate the light with four standard 18650 rechargeable batteries. The beauty of the flashlight is the fact the light itself can be used as a power source to charge your phone, camera battery, or any device which can be recharged using a USB power. The batteries which are operating the flashlight can also be charged INSIDE the flashlight battery using the USB Type-C port in the flashlight body.
So if you are looking for a bright flashlight, you can’t go wrong with the Fenix LR40R. It is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and is IP68 rated for water and dust. Rain is no threat to this light—nor is dust. The light will still be working when you are ready to call it a day. The $269.95 price may seem a little steep, but look at what you are getting.

The 5 ½-year warranty is an indication of the quality you are buying. Fenix is proud of their product.
