Every day carry gear has become more and more refined, with high-quality multitools which put five or more tools compactly into your pocket. Part of everyday gear is a reliable flashlight, and the new rechargeable Fenix PD36R Tactical Flashlight more than fits the bill when it comes to reliable lighting.
It’s not only electronic devices such as cameras and computers which keep getting smaller and more powerful. The flashlight industry continues to amaze us with high-lumen lighting in compact sizes. The true art is getting all the customer desired features into a flashlight and still produce the lumens requested. Fenix has done just that with the release of the Fenix PD36R Rechargeable Tactical Flashlight…which may be the best EDC light on the market. Just the name in itself gives you a hint of the features included.
Top Features of the Fenix PD36R
- Maximum Lumen Output: 1600 Lumens. Most lights operating at that high output level have a relatively short run time where they can maintain that level. Fenix has incorporated a 5000mAh 21700 Rechargeable battery into the light. This power horse resulted in a long run time of 2.9 hours at 1600 Lumens. If you don’t need that power for up to 928 feet (equivalent to an auto headlight on high), then you can cycle to four lower output modes. The Eco mode (the lowest mode) is 30 Lumens and has a runtime of 115 hours. Talk about handy in times of power outages…
- USB Type-C Charging: The USB–C spec is capable of delivering power at significantly greater rates than the standard USB. Fenix boasts “Charge for 10 minutes, light for 5 hours.” That’s a pretty amazing performance statement. Add an invaluable battery-level indicator in the flashlight and you have a state-of-the-art power package in this flashlight.
- Harsh Conditions Specifications:
- IP68 Waterproof Rating: Can withstand being submersed in water up to 6.5 feet for 30 minutes
- Impact Resistance: Withstands a 5-foot drop on all sides of the light
- Tactical Tail Switch: Instant activation with a slight tap. No need to fully depress to click. The instant activation brings up the Turbo mode, which is important in critical times of an emergency or danger. Fully click the switch then cycle through the modes. Need a strobe feature to deter an impending dangerous person or to use as a signal? A long press will activate the strobe function. The Fenix PD36R is sure to become a favorite of law enforcement personnel and security officers.
- Compact Size: All these features are masterfully designed into a flashlight a mere 5.35 inches long with a head diameter of 1.04 inches. The weight is only 3.0 ounces. The PD36R is small enough for pocket carry or external carry using the two-way pocket clip.
You probably won’t find another flashlight to match the high performance of the Fenix PD36R. The aircraft-grade aluminum body and Fenix’s outstanding 5 1/2-year warranty make Fenix products a favorite with military personnel, law enforcement officers, and any enthusiast who doesn’t mind paying a little more for a lighting product that will be there when needed. Many times flashlights are needed when you are in a critical circumstance. Don’t take the chance with that checkout-counter flashlight. Turn to Fenix for reliability.
