What a powerhouse! I was in love with my TK35 and thought it was the greatest thing ever, then the TK35UE came along, and that was the greatest ever. I’ve tried many other flashlights, but I’ve always appreciated the dual-battery, compact size of the TK35. Now the LR35R comes along with a much more powerful output in a significantly smaller package, and we have a winner.
The USB-C external charging port is great, I love that I don’t have to take the flashlight apart and remove the batteries to charge them.
The power button is located on the side of the unit, which is not my preference. It’s much faster and more intuitive to be able to find an on/off button that located on the tailpiece, so I’m a bit disappointed in that.
Like all Fenix flashlights, it’s built like a tank. It’s significantly shorter than the TK35, which is convenient. It looks like this was achieved by putting a bunch of LEDs at the front of the lens with very small reflectors instead of having a single LED with a huge recessed reflector. This makes for a wide, even light.
And of course, at 10,000 lumens, this light is insanely bright. I’ve included comparison images between the LR35R, TK35UE, and TK35 below. All of the flashlights are set to full brightness. It’s pretty insane. The downside is that it gets hot quite quickly.
