Usage and Maintenance

  • Replace the battery as soon as possible if High cannot be selected.
  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the lantern and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using excellent quality batteries.
  • If the light will not be used for an extended period, remove the batteries or the lantern could be damaged by electrolyte leakage or battery explosion.
  • Long-term use can result in O-ring wear. To maintain a proper water seal, replace the ring with an approved spare.
  • Periodic cleaning of the battery contacts improves the lamp’s performance, as dirty contacts may cause the lamp to flicker, shine intermittently or even fail to illuminate for the following reasons:

A: The battery needs replacing.
Solution: Replace battery (Ensure battery is inserted according to the manufacturer’s   specifications).

B: The threads, PCB board contact or other contacts are dirty.
Solution: Clean the contact points with a cotton swab soaked in rubbing alcohol.

If the above methods don’t work, please contact your authorized distributor.

    The O-ring is too fragile; it’s already broken. Otherwise I’d give it a 5. Not a huge deal for me; just wanted to let you know. I’m a big Fenix fan.

    Awesome piece of equipment, especially for its size. Also great that it uses common size rechargeable batteries.
