* Do not mix batteries of different brands, sizes, capacities or types. Doing so may cause damage to the headlamp or the batteries being used.

* Fenix ARB-L18 Series rechargeable Li-ion battery can also be used together with the ALF-18 battery holder.

* 21700 Li-ion batteries are powerful cells designed for commercial applications and must be treated with caution and handled with care. Only use quality batteries with circuit protection. This will reduce the potential for combustion or explosion, but cell damage or short circuiting are potential risks the user assumes.

  • When charging is complete, replace the anti-dust cap to ensure the waterproof and dustproof ability.
    1. The normal charging time of the Fenix ARB-L21-5000 battery is about 4.5 hours from depletion to full charging, with the lamp being switched off. When charging, on/off and output selection can be used.
    2. Recharge a stored headlamp every four months to maintain optimal Li-ion battery performance.

Intelligent Overheat Protection
The lamp will accumulate a lot of heat when used at relatively high modes for extended periods. When the lamp reaches a temperature of 60°C or above, the lamp will automatically step down a few lumens to reduce the temperature. When the temperature drops below 60°C, it will then allow the user to reselect the modes.

Low-voltage Warning
When the voltage level drops below the preset level, the headlamp is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until Low mode is reached. When this happens in Low mode, the lamp blinks 3 times every 5 minutes to remind you to timely recharge or replace the battery.

Note: This only works with Fenix ARB-L21-5000 battery.

Headband Assembly

  • The headband is factory assembled by default.
  • Adjust the headband by sliding the buckle to the required length.
  • If the headband is stained with sweat and mud, it can be washed directly.

Belt-worn: clip the battery case into the included stainless steel belt clip, the battery pack can be belt-worn together with the extension cable.

Usage and Maintenance for the HP30R V2.0

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the lamp and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using an excellent quality Fenix battery.
  • If the lamp will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery, or the lamp could be damaged by electrolyte leakage.
  • Take out the battery to prevent accidental activation during storage or transportation.
  • 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 or recharging.
    Solution: Replace or recharge the battery (Ensure the battery is inserted according to the manufacturer’s specifications).
    B: The contact point or contact of the battery or headlamp is 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.
  • This headlamp will accumulate a lot of heat when used for extended periods, resulting in a high temperature of the headlamp. Pay attention to safe use to avoid scalding.
  • Do not shine an object at close range to avoid burning an object or causing harm due to high temperature.
  • The LED of this headlamp is not replaceable; so the entire lamp should be replaced when the LED reaches the end of its life.

Super awesome headlamp, it’s very bright. I have the hp30r and this one’s much brighter! Especially the spotlight! Definitely love having the battery pack attached to the light that way there’s no annoying wire!!! Would buy again very happy with it!

    It’s bright as hell on 3000 lumens but anything less than 3000 is a bit lackluster. It’s also pretty heavy and considering they are LED’s it gets really hot. I had it on for 5 minutes and put it down on my bed in my tent not realizing how hot it had become and it melted my sleeping bag. Not sure if mine is defective but I’ve never seen an LED lamp get so hot . Decent but a bit expensive overall.

    It’s very bright and holds a good charge. Downfall is doesn’t stay on a hardhat. We will see how it holds up over time. If you need a bright light that lasts a good bit this is the one.

    I use this exclusively for caving, and although the large battery is great for extended runtimes it falls short in size and durability.

    The front of the light is, simply put, massive. For comparison it’s slightly larger than a Scurion lamp. The light modes and control knob are both excellent, however, they don’t quite make up for the downsides.

    The battery pack is expectedly large as it fits 2×21700, however, the power cable is not very durable and I quickly wore through the outer sleeve after only 2 trips underground.

    Finally, I may just have a defective product, but the light never turns *off*. After switching it to “off”, it turns back on after about 5 seconds at about 2-3 lumens. This may be related to the durability issues I experienced with the cable, but still seems like a very odd issue considering this mode is not listed anywhere in the specs.

    Overall, if you’re not planning on doing a lot of intense caving where durability is critical it would probably be fine, but for this use case I would not recommend it.


    After letting the light sit for a couple days the issue with the light turning back on has gone away. I suspect this may have been caused by some minor water leakage. I’ve changed the review from 2/5 stars to 3/5 since I still have some concerns about the reliability, especially of the cable. For how expensive this light is I expect a thicker cable that is more abrasion resistant. The mesh outer layer especially adds very little protection.

    The tilt adjustment mechanism could also be better if the pivot point was more centered to avoid accidentally tilting the light back however this is not a major issue.

      I have asked warranty to reach out to you. It should not be turning back on at all.
