Usage and Maintenance

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

  • If the lamp will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery, or the lamp could be damaged by electrolyte leakage.
  • 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 the distributor.

The headlamp is a high-intensity lighting device capable of causing eye damage to the user or others. Avoid shining the lamp directly into anyone’s eyes.

    As a caver, finding a waterproof rechargeable headlamp with simple mode sequences and enough battery life to last days underground is not easy. But Fenix has done it, and with the added benefit of the spotlight and floodlight being separate.

    Haven’t had a chance to use it much, but am extremely happy with this head lamp so far, I would definitely order another if something happens to this one.

    Nice light with good burn time. I’m a little concerned about usb charging of the light since NY caves tend to be quite muddy and wet. I think that feature might be compromised with the conditions of my caving area. I’d like to see an additional option for charging the light without usb included in the package. But damn this is a very sexy light!🦇

    overall is a ‘4’ untested in wild/after testing, expected performance to be ‘5’/construction-brightness-headband gets ‘5’ out of box

    I gave this as a gift to my husband. He can’t stop talking about how great it is. He delivers new semi trucks and often is under the trucks at night or in low light areas. He said this is the best headlamp he’s ever had and the USB recharge feature is super convenient. He can charge it in the truck and never worry about the batteries going dead.

    Great lamp, stupid bright. Only gripe is Fenix 18650’s are like 1/4” longer than standard so don’t expect to use batteries you already have

    I’ would like to give it 4.5 stars. To me 5 star ratings are for perfection and if you buy fenix lights you already have a taste for quality but know perfection is hard to come by.
    I have a 2-e12s 2-cl05s one each of the hl23,hl50 and hl55.
    Great lights .
    The body almost has a molded plastic look to it as opposed to the machined aluminum of the others but still looks and feels solid
    The spot reflector is not smooth and is probably why it throws a little less then the hp25 for example, being able to use both beams at once is cool, and they blend in together nice it seems, maybe that’s why they went with the orange peel reflector on the spot light
    The electronic lock out is nice, loosening the cap locked it out for me also.
    Great battery comes with it, charging cord is short though,
    It doesn’t have the slots to easily change head bands like the others which I would have liked so I could take it off my dirty hard hat and put it on a clean head band . Doesn’t have the degree of rotation of my other fenix headlamps but that is a compromise they had to make.
    Great headlamp!

    I like this headlamp, along with my uc35 v2.0 flashlight, this will be my main light source for trail running. I took one star off because of the misleading way of running time for each brightness levels on the specification. In short, this is a light of 130-150 lumens for a whole night without need to change the battery, which is a pretty cool thing to me. You can ignore the 1600 lumens since it’s meaningless. You may able to use 400 lumens from time to time, but don’t count to use it consistently. To test, I charged it full and then turned it on the 400 lumens, 9hrs later, it’s still on, but around 130 lumens brightness, with one bar on the battery indicator(25% left). I turned it off and turned it on again on 400 lumens, it’s still pretty bright, but it dimmed in a couple of hours to the lowest setting of 8 lumens floor light mode. From this one and a HL18R headlamp I brought and returned before, it seemed that Fenix changed both the technology and specification. Technology wise, all the brightness level will be decreased pretty quickly (to what purpose I’m not sure although it said on turbo mode for the protection of overheat). In term of specification, the time on Turbo mode is meaningless, and so does the High but in a less way. Basically you’ll get a light at Medium brightness, if you divide the time for that brightness by 4, you’ll get the meaningful time for that brightness. So this is light of 130 lumens for 12hrs (48hrs / 4). Which is a pretty good deal to me. I have waited this for more than a year. Although I was waited for a 400 lumens one nighter, but looking back it seems an unrealistic goal for a single 18650 battery. Maybe the new PD36 flashlight with 21700 battery can do that, but I already owned uc35 and pretty happy about it so I’m reluctant to buy another one. Back to this lamp, the other good thing about this lamp is that it’s pretty light and comfortable, also it has white light which is a plus for me (I don’t like the warm yellow light on HL18R). If you are running trail a lot, this is a nice or must to have one, go get yours. I attached an output chart from the manual for your reference. Happy running!
