  1. Turn off the light. Plug the USB side of the charging cable into any USB power supply. Uncover the anti-dust cap of the light, and plug the Micro USB side of the charging cable into the charging port of the light.
  2. The battery level indicator displays red while charging and turns to solid green when charging is complete. The normal charging time of the included Fenix ARB-L17-700 is about 1.5 hours.
  3. Once charging is completed, be sure to remove the charging cable and replace the anti-dust cap to protect against dust and foreign objects.

  5. Only Low output can be used when the light is being charged, but charging time will be prolonged.

Battery Replacement
Unscrew the tail cap to insert the battery with the anode side (+) towards the light head, then screw the tail cap back on.

Time-limited Output Downshifting
The light will accumulate a lot of heat when working at Turbo output level. To prevent high surface temperature the light is programmed to downshift to 200 Lumens after working for 5 minutes.

Intelligent Memory Circuit
The light memorizes the last selected brightness level on white light mode. When turned on again the previously used brightness level will be recalled.

Low-voltage Warning
When the voltage level drops below a preset level, the flashlight is programmed to step down to a lower brightness level until Low output is reached. When this happens in Low output level, the battery level indicator will display red and the flashlight blinks every three seconds to remind you to replace the battery. To ensure normal use, the flashlight will work until the battery runs out.
Note: This only work with the rechargeable 16340 Li-ion battery.

Usage and Maintenance

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the light and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using an excellent quality battery.
  • If the light will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery, or the light could be damaged by electrolyte leakage or battery explosion.
  • Unscrew the tail cap half a turn or 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.
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.

This flashlight is a high-intensity lighting device capable of causing eye damage. Avoid shining the flashlight directly into anyone’s eyes.

    I just got this light the other day and boy am I impressed. I bought it instead of the HM50R headlamp because I didn’t want to sacrifice the red light (seriously Fenix, why is there not a red light on the headlamp???????) and decided that the clip might be more versatile. I agree with the other reviewers who wished the clip was removable/replaceable. I also wish there was an optional strap to hook this to to make it into a headlamp. That said, the light itself is amazing. I wanted an ultralight light for ultralight backpacking and this is it. Bright and light and I appreciate all of the light modes. I also appreciate that one can easily swap out batteries if needed. I’m hoping to get many years of service out of this little baby.

    Purchased to attach to life vests. Needed to attach lanyard from vest to light. Overall an excellent product except there is no molded hole in body to attach a lanyard or clip. The holes on the spring clip are terrible to attach anything to and in wrong place. In my opinion a molded lanyard hole as in other lights on the bottom centered at back of light would be useful.

    Almost perfect! I leave it clipped to the visor in my truck as an addition to my dome lights. Red secondary LED is a perk, and USB charging makes it right at home in my truck. My only gripe is that it doesn’t have memory when in “red” mode.

    I just love this little light I EDC it. It fits in the change pocket on my jeans. I use it ever day at work and at home the low setting is perfect for getting around the house at night instead of turning on the lights. The only thing I would change is to have a magnetic charger not sure if I trust the little rubber plug on the charging port when around water. I highly recommend this little light to my friends awesome product.

    Great light overall! I love it. Only two changes I would like to see. 1. I would like to see some mode or some way it could be turned on immidately, because sometimes we don’t have 1.5 seconds to wait for the light to illuminate the creature charging us out of the woods etc. (but I do like how your 1.5 second feature keeps it from being activated in my pocket as much.)

    2. I would like some easier way to remove/replace the pocket clip. Especially with its larger profile, it gets caught on things and bent way out of shape sometimes and it was a challenge getting it back into working shape. It almost made my entire light no longer fit for my purpose of every day carry.

    Still, I am in love with this light! I was looking for a right angle light and this one was everything I could have looked for and more! Keep up the great work.

    I have been a big fan of Fenix lights for years now, I have several of their products and none have been a disappointment. I have used this light in EMS work regularly over the last year and have noticed several pros and a couple of cons about it.


    Size: this light fits perfectly on most duty-belt sized belts or webbing as well as MOLLE platforms, I have used it on both and found that it seems to prefer more rigid platforms when not being held in the hand. The top button is not easily accidentally pressed by clothing or movement when carried on a belt. If not attached to something the light is relatively unobtrusive when carried in a pocket or pouch and I have actually forgotten it in my pockets when putting my pants in the wash. Waterproofing is 100%.

    Function: Light modes are very well thought out, high will cast enough light on a small room to walk comfortably, low can be used for pupil reflex assessment without pain, and turbo is light a small spotlight in your hand. The quick check battery level indicator is very useful especially for those of us who don’t use the light every day. The red light modes are useful for both retaining night vision and signaling.

    Construction: As mentioned above, waterproofing is 100%. Dropping this light from a normal use height hardly seems to phase it, the anodized surface might get a little scratched but the function remains unchanged even after falling down a flight of stairs. I do have a slight problem with the belt clip which will be discussed below. The magnetic base is surprisingly strong and very useful for engine work or tire work on the side of the highway in the dark of night (experience speaking there).

    Power source: I highly appreciate the recharge feature of this light. Since the battery is relatively small in capacity it charges fairly fast both from a wall outlet and from a car charging port, and the choice of plug is an easily obtainable phone charger should a new one be needed.


    Belt clip: Honestly this is my biggest complaint and in terms of the overall light its not a terribly big deal. The choice of metal/choice of tempering of the metal is a little less springy than I would like on a light designed to clip on a belt or strap. My clip bent out just enough to loose it’s tension on both ends within the first 2 months of use. My other complaint with this clip is its non-replaceable and since belt clips on the majority of objects with them are notorious for breaking I feel like it could have been made closer to the design of a c clip.

    Price: I am a firm believer that Fenix makes high quality products and I do not have any issue paying a little bit more for the quality they provided. That being said, I do feel that $50 is a little high for a light of this size.

    Overall: I feel like the light is worth it even if the price is a bit high. Fenix has a stellar reputation and this light delivers in full.

    Great light. Very bright. Replaced my Streamlight clipmate. I wish it was possible to rotate the clip around the body of the flashlight so you could change the angle of the light.

    Great little light, works very well considering the size. The only thing keeping it from being 5-stars is the two way body clip. I wish a slightly thicker metal clip was used to provide greater retention.
