For Emergency Demands

The camping lantern is powered by 3*AA batteries, but 1 or 2 can be used for emergency lighting.

Low-Voltage Warning

Replace the battery as soon as possible if High cannot be selected. This means the battery power is running out.

Intelligent Memory Circuit

The lantern memorizes the last selected brightness level on White light mode. When turned on again the previously used brightness level will be recalled.

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.
