Warning: 18650 Li-ion batteries are power cells designed for commercial applications and must be treated with caution and handled with care. Quality batteries with circuit protection will reduce the potential risk for combustion or explosion but cell damage or short circuiting are potential risks the user assumes.

Usage and Maintenance

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the headlamp and will void the warranty.
  • Excellent quality Fenix Li-ion batteries are strongly recommended for this high-power lamp.
  • 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 performance of the headlamp as dirty contacts may cause the headlamp to flicker, shine intermittently or even fail to illuminate for the following reasons:

Reason A: The batteries need replacing.
Solution: Replace batteries (Please confirm the correct installation of anode and cathode).

Reason 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 refer to the warranty policy before contacting your authorized distributor.

    Cycling/hiking all types of environments this light is awesome.
    Very well balanced. Head band easily adjustable to bare head, capped head or helmeted head and the adjustable angle light stays put.
    Floodlight great for camp site or hvy night traffic areas keeping the 4 wheeled murderists on their toes. High level not recommended for city night biking, you’ll have the motorists covering their eyes because they’re temporarily blinded even from just the side wash of the light beam.
    I wear this in any climate condition. From clear nights, pelting rain storms to 5-15F in Sierra Nevada blowing snow storms.
    Depending upon the ambient lighting conditions the multiple output levels and arcs work extremely well. Everything from cycling 100 miles or hiking all night you won’t be disappointed. High output level for technical mountain biking at night and lowest level for long treks on your basic roadways or trails.
    High level is as good as any common modern car headlight. You can see the color of objects easily at 200ft +. Pretty much way overkill in all but the most technical hiking/biking conditions where flailing = death drop.

    Amazing headlamp. I have been buying the latest black diamond storm for the past 5 years. They have been increasing the lumens a tiny bit each time but its NOTHING compared to the 25r. I swear they don’t get as bright the longer you own them. I wanted a headlamp that i can go on hikes with my dogs on my local trails and that i can recharge. I got tired of replacing 4 AAA batteries in the storms. With the HP25R i can use all the power i want and just recharge it when i get home. The battery last a long time. The 2nd and 3rd brightest while using the spot is plenty of light. I took off the top band because you don’t need it. I am going to hike the PCT trail in 2 months and am seriously considering taking this lamp vs a lighter lamp. I might get the HL26R lamp Fenix just came out with and take that. I would like to see Fenix let us use the 350lum spot and 350lum flood at the same time. I also use them headlamp for mountain biking and it works great. I got this lamp because of the flood and its awesome. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    tempted to get the 60 rechargeable however the battery is on the front which will make it heavier,, this is better balanced however the output on the lowest setting is 30 lumens where the 60 has a output of 50 lumens, why could they make the output the same.. the 60 rechargeable seems to have better specs but why didn’t they make the battery at the rear fro balancing

    My first impression is I want the ability to use the flood and spot at the same time. The ability to have to light sources to give more depth perception on uneven ground . It seems to be solid construction, time will tell. A heat sink would help overheating . Changing batteries is a snap just keep a spare in your pocket. My guess is I’m in the minority of users in how I use the light. This time of year I am using it 3-4 times a week for 2-3 hours at a time off/road/trail on steep eroded firebreaks and canyon areas

    As a fan of the original HP25 and of 18650 power, I was excited to see this model come out, and now that I’ve received it, I’m not disappointed. Pros: extremely solid construction; very even flood illumination; extremely powerful spot (about 50% wider than HP25 too). Only con is that I can’t use both flood and spot at the same time (sometimes that’s what I want). Partly offset by the wider spot though. Great light!

Fenix HP25R Headlamp Review

Chance F.
Ambassador: Outdoor Headlamps

Headlamp Review by Outdoor Ambassador, Chance F.   The Fenix HP25R is an awesome headlamp with two different modes of lighting your night. There is a spotlight which has a turbo setting of 1,000 Lumens, which is great for spotting snakes or like the other night, the illusive Pine Barrens Tree Frog (picture below). The HP25R also […]

  • 18560 rechargeable batteries are the highest volume standard battery used in lighting products. They are a great alternative for products that utilize 2xCR123A disposable batteries. Not only are you being environmentally friendly by eliminating disposable batteries, 18650 rechargeable battery provides different levels of capacity for your exact need. For example, you can get 30% more capacity out of a ARB-L18-3500 compared to a ARB-L18-2600.

    In addition, Fenix batteries are built with safety in mind. There are built in features to prevent short circuits, design multiple layers of protection and the new button-top design. The high capacity 18650 Li-ion rechargeable batteries each provide protection circuits in the anode to help prevent short circuits, over charge/discharge and over heating. Each battery also includes pressure relief vents which expel waste gas in the rare case of an internal short circuit preventing an explosion.
