Usage and Maintenance

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the light and will void the warranty.

  • Lock the light or take out the battery to prevent accidental activation during storage or transportation. Recharge a stored battery every four months to maintain optimal battery performance.
  • Long-term use can result in O-ring wear. To maintain a proper water seal, replace the ring with an approved spare.

    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.

    Love this little light. It is very impressive. Produces great balance between flood and spot and runs much cooler at the head compared to its hot headed little brother the E16.

  5. VICTOR L. (verified owner)

    The main reason for getting this flashlight to work in confined spaces and the magnetic tail allows me put the light where necessary. It does not have the huge battery life in the brighter modes but when used for my intended purpose, in confined spaces I use the lower output modes which is great. It will shift out of Turbo mode when the battery voltage drops to 3.7V which does not take a lot of use. Also in Turbo mode, the light gets hot quickly, as in a few minutes making it uncomfortable to hold. The E18R does not have memory of the last brightness setting. It starts at the lowest brightness and you scroll though the brightness settings. Small battery allows for a small flashlight which is great, disadvantage is lower run-time; however, because it has a small battery, recharge times are fast. Awesome EDC light or for use in where a Mag tail would be beneficial.

    I really wanted to like it. I put it on my key chain and it constantly keep turning on by itself, and thus has always an empty battery. I wish the on/off button would be on the back like most others. Other than that small enough for EDC and pretty bright.

      Hi Alexander – there are a couple ways to lockout the light to avoid this:

      Electronic Lockout Function
      Lock: With the light unlocked, press the side switch twice within 0.5s. The light will blink twice on Med to indicate locked status.
      Unlock: With the light locked, press the side switch twice within 0.5s. The light will be unlocked and activated on Low.
      In locked status, clicking or pressing the switches will activate 2 one-second blinks to indicate locked status.

      Physical Lockout Function
      Rotate the body clip to right above the side switch to avoid accidental activation. Move the two-way body clip away for normal use.

    I am really happy with this light. I have used it every day since I bought it and it’s holding up well. As someone who works with their hands it’s nice to have something that can occasionally be stuck in a mouth or on a cap.

    This is an excellent light; don’t let its size fool you. I’m very pleased with the multiple brightness options and the convenience of the magnetic charger. This is my second Fenix light (along with a UC35) in a couple months. I wanted a second to have on my keys or in my pocket all the time and after lots of research, the E18R seemed perfect. Very pleased with the quality and functionality from Fenix. I highly recommend this and other Fenix lights.

    I love all three of my Fenix flashlights but this one is the best. I use it all the time at work and at home. Really bright, small, and rechargeable. What I like: Two clicks and it’s locked then two clicks to turn on, that is faster than pressing and waiting 1 second for it to turn on, you can check the amount of charge remaining in the battery, magnetic tail cap, I didn’t think I would like the magnetic charging cable but recharging just got easier. It never fails to impress everyone I show. This flashlight is great. I checked my order online and the chat staff was really nice and fast. Please keep up the great work .

    This light seems to get confused quite often. The switch stops responding and I have to remove the tailcap to reset it, then it works fine for a while. I also wish it didn’t have the strobe function. Really, I have never needed a strobe. It serves me no purpose and is just an annoyance when it gets accidentally triggered. Please stop putting a useless strobe into otherwise very useful flashlights!

    I like the size and brightness. Not a fan of the on off switch routines. I can’t seem to get the hang of locking and unlocking the switch. I often find the light on in my pocket. Wish it had a two button arrangement like my favorite of all, the LD12.

      Daniel – if you don’t like the double click locking mechanism, another way to avoid accidental activation in your pocket is to rotate the body clip to right above the side switch. This will prevent it from turning on.

    Awesome light for EDC! Bright enough for most tasks and the magnet is great for working on my vehicles. I have many flashlights and have found myself using this light more than the others. The battery life isn’t the greatest but it easy super easy to recharge with the provided charger. Double tapping it locks it which is necessary. When I first got it I didn’t lock it and it burned through the battery quick in my pocket… Its an amazing little light! Worth every penny!

The email with the instructions may have gone to your spam folder? Warranty is going to re-send the message, so check your email for the information on how to get that back to us so we can get it taken care of.

    Love the size, magnet and potential brightness. Mine does not stay on Turbo with full charge, drops down one level. Try clipping it on your belt behind you, difficult. The RC09 was much easier to clip that way. Still, a very good light for a tradesman with magnet and clip to your cap feature while working. I’m still a big fan and have purchased at least 10 Fenix lights, but this one only gets a 3.

    I thought this light would be the best one I could carry, but am disappointed. I still have a difficult time finding the button to turn it on in the dark, and the battery life indicator is good but several times I needed the light and the battery was dead with no warning. So far I like the RCF05 SE better and wish it had more lumens.

      Hi David – one suggestion I have heard is to line up the pocket clip right next to the switch to help you find the switch in the dark quickly. If the battery indicator light isn’t working, and you haven’t done so yet, contact our warranty and repairs department. He is a little backed up right now from the holiday, but should get back to you in within 48 hours to see what’s going on.

    Excellent little light . Easy to toggle thru brightness levels . Nice feature when u first touch the power button it gives you power status . Green means go. Pocket clip good. Magnetic base handy . Magnetic charging ok but means you need charge cord with you . I would prefer micro USB charging . Light is plenty bright . White light beam I prefer also . Very sturdy well made switch “feels “ good .My second Fenix light . Previously loyal to another brand. Long term they did not hold up . Time will tell with this one have owned over a month used a lot and flawless so far .

    Awesome little light. Color temp of the LED is spot on, and the beam pattern is excellent as well. Plenty bright for its size. It will heat up quickly and step down. So if you are looking for high lumens for an extended time, a larger light would be better choice. However, this light is small enough that anyone will be able to carry it everyday and it has enough power to get you out of trouble. One odd thing that I noticed is the light will shut off when you snap it onto a magnetic surface with force. Only does this in turbo mode. Doesn’t do it in any other mode, only turbo. Not really a big deal, but it’s worth mentioning. Haven’t had any issues with the light turning on inadvertently. I always use both the physical and electronic lockouts. I love this little light and I will be buying one for everyone in my family. It’s an excellent addition to my fleet.

    I received this flashlight a couple days ago and I am impressed. It is pretty small and lightweight but appears well made. I hooked up the charging cable and plugged it in and about an hour later it was charged. It feels good in the hand and I tried clipping it to my hat and it worked great as a headlamp. The light has a good color and the choices of power levels work well. On turbo mode it really lit up the back yard but the flashlight started to get pretty warm pretty fast but I probably wouldn’t use it at that level for more that a couple minutes anyway. I haven’t had it long enough to need to do a second charge so I can’t say how long the battery will last but at the low and med levels it does what I need it to do. I have been carrying in the front pocket of my jeans as a EDC flashlight and it is very comfortable. Being that it is small it makes a great EDC flashlight but if I was going to use it a lot then I think I would prefer a longer flashlight which would be more comfortable for long duration. I am really pleased with this flashlight and will make it part of my EDC.
