Additionally, you will always be able to see the battery’s charge status at a glance with the external battery level indicator.

Operating this powerful LED rechargeable flashlight is simple with the tactical tail switch for momentary on/off, and the ability to cycle through six lighting modes using the side switch including a 1600 lumen turbo mode. Carry the Fenix PD36R how you want—on a backpack, belt, or MOLLE system with the two-way body clip. The amount of power and runtime packed into this flashlight are unmatched for its handheld size.

Switches
The tail switch is the tactical switch, and the side switch is the functional switch.

ON/OFF
Tap
Slightly tap the tactical switch to momentarily turn on the light, release it the light will go out.
Fully press
Fully press the tactical switch to constantly turn on the light, press once again to turn off the light.

Output Selection
With the light switched on, single click the functional switch to cycle through Turbo→Eco→Low→Med→High.

Strobe
With the light switched on, press and hold the functional switch for 0.5 seconds to enter strobe, click once again to return back to General mode.

Intelligent Memory Circuit
The light memorizes the last selected output excluding strobe. When turned on again the previously used output will be recalled.

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

Boot-up Battery Level Indication
Each time the light is turned on, the battery level indicator in the middle of the switch will automatically display the battery status for 3 seconds.

  • Green constant on: 85% – 100%, saturated
  • Green flashes: 50% – 85%, sufficient
  • Red constant on: 25% – 50%, poor
  • Red flashes: 1% – 25%, critical

Note: This only works with Fenix ARB-L21-5000 21700 rechargeable Li-ion battery.

Overheat protection
The light will accumulate a lot of heat when used on Turbo or High for extended periods. When the light reaches a temperature of 50°C or above, the light will automatically step down a few lumens to reduce the temperature: the light will downshift until to 550 lumens if Turbo is being selected; the light will downshift until to 450 lumens if High is being selected.

Time-limited downshift
When the light is kept working on Turbo for over 15 minutes, the output will reduce to 900-550 lumens within 15 minutes.

Note: Tested according to laboratory cooling test conditions.

When High or Turbo is needed again, restart the light or directly cycle back if battery level allows.

Low-voltage Warning
When the voltage level drops below 3V, the flashlight is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until Eco output is reached. When this happens in Eco output mode, the battery level indicator blinks red to remind you to recharge or replace the battery so as not to shorten the life or damage the battery. To ensure normal use, the flashlight will work until the battery runs out or the protection circuit activates.

Note: This only works with Fenix ARB-L21-5000 21700 rechargeable Li-ion battery.

Charging

  1. When charging is needed, remove the dust cover to reveal the charging port in the light neck, and connect the light to the power source with the included USB Type-C charging cable.
  2. The indicator in the middle of the switch will be on and display red to indicate charging status, when the indicator turns green, the charging is completed. The normal charging time of the included Fenix ARB-L21-5000 rechargeable Li-ion battery is about 4 hours.
  3. Once charging is completed, be sure to remove the charging cable and push the dust cover back to protect the charging port from dust and foreign objects.
  4. Recharge a stored light every four months to maintain optimal battery performance.
  5. The light can be turned on lower outputs when it is in charging process, but the charging time will be prolonged by this act.

Usage and Maintenance

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the light and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using a quality battery with proper built-in protections.
  • 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.
  • Lithium battery needs to be charged when it is near depletion. Please immediately charge the battery when it is depleted. It has no memory effect.
  • 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 (included) when damaged.
  • Periodic cleaning of the battery contacts improves the light’s performance as dirty contacts may cause the light 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.

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

This flashlight will accumulate a lot of heat when used for extended periods, resulting in high temperature of the flashlight shell.

  1. Anthony C. (verified owner)

    Solid light, this is my first “high end” flashlight and overall I’m very pleased with this purchase. After many long hours of researching different lights from various companies I settled on the PD36R. I purchased this light to carry daily and accompany me on my random adventures. Its very bright and feels durable. Will put it to good hard use in the summer when fishing/kayaking season rolls back around. My only complaint about it is that the On/Off button protrudes out too much and has been pressed multiple times over the last few weeks when in my jean pockets due to my belt hitting the button. By the time I see it, the battery has already been drained to red. I guess it was on the entire day and I didnt know. That has happened more than once. A little annoying but still a great light none the less.

    This product is a perfect fit for me and my Cable Technicians we do a lot work above drop ceiling and in man holes and having the capability to change the brightness let’s me see small things close and far away. The compact size fits perfect in my small com tool pouch on my hip and USB charging port let’s me charge too and from work in my truck.

    Nice flashlight !

    I’ve had a UC45 for a few years now and have no complaints whatsoever! I seen the Holiday discount and I had a promo code so I figured it was time to purchase a new light!
    I couldn’t be happier with the PD36R. The battery life is amazing, the size is great for it is overall a much smaller light. The switches and placement works very well with my larger hand size as well!
    If your looking for the overall best flashlight for EDC use don’t hesitate to buy one!

    I’m extremely satisfied with the size of the light, and the brightness. The five levels of brightness are great. The only thing that I would like to see changed is the size of the focused beam. I would really like a light that can be focused to a very narrow beam, in order to maximize the beam travel distance. I do a lot of equipment inspection in rather dark industrial plants, and being able to illuminate objects at a distance, that can’t be closely approached on foot, would be very helpful.

    I had previously owned only Surefire lights until I happened upon the Fenix PD35 after losing an expensive Surefire in a parking lot. I loved the PD35 over several years, and was very disappointed when I recently had it fall out of my pocket while mowing. That disappointment has been eased by the amazing PD36R replacement. In every way, it is an upgrade. The light it throws is astounding, especially when I have the occasion to put it all the way on high. The battery life and ease of recharging are great, and the battery charge indicator is very handy. All in all, it’s a great light that I carry and use every day.

    Incredible light for its size. This is my 5th Fenix light (lost two, one for home and one backup for truck). The battery life is great compared to the PD35 tactical which was already very good. I love that I can charge it on the go with the USB C and that it gives battery life with the indicator light. I crawl under houses for a living and this light is perfect, has a nice focused beam to see things in the distance, with a dimmer flood area concurrently so I can see what’s next to me at the same time. Gets far brighter than I could possibly need. Couldn’t be happier.

    Love this flashlight. But the dual switch to switch modes is taking some getting use to. Last light I had the tail switch did it all.

    Love how bright this thing is and how it lights up whatever I’m pointing it at. And the battery, for how I use it, seems to last forever on a single charge. Have only charged the batter once since I got it and that was about a month ago. And the green light is just now blinking.

    Other then that, the only issue, and concern I’ve discovered, for me anyhow, is, when I’ve had the flashlight in my front left pocket, the damn thing has gotten turned on 3 times so far. And the first time it got very hot and about burned my skin. To me, the tail switch sticks out a tad too far. When I sit with it hooked into my pocket, it gets turned on.

    Other then that, Yes, I’d still buy another one!!!

    This flashlight is an absolute Beast. I thought my PD35 Tactical was a beast and it is but this one’s even better. I love that you can recharge it without taking the battery out.

    The led power indicator that comes on when you first push the tactical switch is awesome, very precise switching between the levels of light. The reflector is perfect the beam is perfect spill is just right.

    Fenix, you did it again, home run….thank you!

    It is a great flashlight with one flaw. It’s compact and super bright with a good feel. The problem is the on and off switch. It is not recessed and protected. It would be nice to have the light on and set it down with the light facing the ceiling as a reflective light, but the button sticks out and will fall over. It may not seam like a big thing but it has been an everyday hindrance. The protruding button has been disappointing on an otherwise great flashlight.

    This is a great light! It helps me on construction sites to see everything in crawlspaces and above ceilings. It definitely gets warm after a while, but if you dont leave it on full power the whole time it is ok. I wish they had it in their list of lights on the product registration page. I couldn’t find it on there. Maybe because it is so new. Otherwise, the shipping was fast, and it was well packed. My boss wants to buy one now!

    Big fan of this light. Settings are easy to use, the only thing I wish it could do is go backwards in brightness. It’s a little frustrating to accidentally miss the brightness setting you were looking for and then have to cycle through them all again. Other than that, it’s the perfect light for me.

    Very bright, takes about 2.5hrs to fully charge, and a 1/3 the price of surefire and all the quality. Does get hot, but for spot checking the property and looking for hurricane damage it’s perfect.

    I own 2. I have yet to recharge either and the first I bought over a month ago. I use them nightly. Is the only flashlight I will take with me when I walk at night. I bought an LD30 at the same time, but I like these lights much better. The E18R is the only light I use more…and that’s my one minor quibble with this light. I wish it had a low lumen setting, but I guess then the battery would NEVER run down.

    Putting this next to my trusty pd32 or uc35 or other fenix 18650-based taclights… it looks just a hair “bulky”. But looks are just that, looks. In-hand, in-pocket, on a dog-walking adventure or at the range, it always feels just the same size as its little siblings, but packs a whole ‘nother level of power (in both runtime and brightness) and a higher clarity all into that extra bit of visual thickness.

Efficient charge time.100 percent satified. I am super tough on flashlights. This light may just be the one to live…Customer service was fantastic when I had a question. As far as longevity goes. I guess I will check in if it goes out. Great Tactical Product and Even better tool. I hope to purchase the LD15R in the near future…

    I do night hiking and at times need instant access to bright light to see what is going on around me. This flashlight does the job. The tail switch gives instant light with just a press of the thumb. The turbo level provides plenty of illumination.

  123. Eliezer (verified owner)

    Very satisfied with the light. Between this, the pd35tac and v2 and other Fenix cigar style offerings, I would go with this hands down.

    The good:
    INSANE run times.

    Long turbo time 15 MINUTES! That’s insane. Not a lot of lights have a turbo time this long. That said, the driver in this light is likely regulating current at just the right level; lots of lumens while maintaining minimal heat. These LEDs normally run HOT at higher amps and burn out at around 9.5 and Fenix definitely did their homework here.

    Excellent machining and finish. Screams quality. I LOVE the clip. While I will probably never carry it reflector side up, the option is there and you know the saying ” better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.”

    The fact that the USB port flap doesn’t affect the IPX rating. Huge plus. This is mainly why I don’t do charge port lights. Fenix got it right on this. I went as far as pouring water into the port while the light was on. But I let it completely dry before using the port to charge.

    Excellent throw with spill. Makes this flashlight an excellent all around light for camping or general edc as the size is great.

    What I didn’t like:
    No tail standing : I have the original pd35 as well as the tac. Neither will tail stand. I can understand that on these lights meant for some self defense or duty situations using a switch that will give you momentary on without the click but this should have used the opposite style of tail switch that doesn’t stick out as far and allows tail standing. It’s great ceiling bouncer as it is. Otherwise, if you’re on turbo, careful not to burn something with it laying down.

    Double click to turbo: I think fenix should have implemented this feature on the side button. Obviously the light has to be clicked on first but it would be really useful to have so you don’t have to scroll through modes in pinch or heat of the moment to see something. I personally don’t keep it on turbo as you tend to forget and their goes your adapted night vision when you power it up in darkness.

    Limited battery choices: The button style feature for the positive terminal severely limits your battery choices to an extent; no unprotected cells will work (too short) and no flat tops either because of some added metal beside the positive terminal of the flash light head. This isn’t too much of a deal breaker though but, it would be nice if Fenix had used a low electrical resistance spring instead to allow for unprotected cells. That said they probably did this as a safety feature so people don’t go running unprotected cells that require care outside of the light. Aside from that, they could bother to make an 18650 adapter to use such batteries in the light at the cost of run times. Just adds to the available power sources. I own a 26650 light that will also run on 21700 and 18650 with no adapter because springs are used on both ends. Adapter wouldn’t be too difficult to make and sell separately though *nudge nudge FENIX* all this said, you’re limited to protected cells which cost a bit more than their unprotected equivalent because of the protection circuits.

    Overall great light. If you don’t own a single fenix light and are debating this versus the pd35tac/v2 or any other of their cigar style lights I would buy this hands down no hesitation. Great gift as well with the included charging port for someone who isn’t into lights and doesn’t have a charger. I’m totally satisfied with it and I’m glad Fenix has started to look at other LEDs like the SST40; very versatile led with throw and flood capabilities.

    I bought the pd36r a couple months ago to use during home inspections. It was the best light i have ever owned. Then sadly and unexpectedly it stopped turning on. Im not sure what happened, but I know it wasnt the battery (it works in my new light and tests fine on a volt meter). Perhaps it got too hot between heavy use, hot car, and charging. Anyway, I called fenix and after a five minute conversation they had me a new light in the mail. (Shoutout to their customer service rep, Dylan, for his help!) Got the new light two days later with a shipping label to send the broken light back. I’m sad it broke and hope my new one doesn’t, but you cant beat customer service like that. Ill buy many more fenix lights in my future.

    I purchased it because it is similar in size to the PD35 but with larger battery, better low, middle & high runtimes and is rechargeable. I can now recharge it with a portable power bank in an emergency. The holster is of lesser quality than other Fenix lights that I have and is almost too small for the light. It does get quite hot on turbo as do most other lights on turbo. I seldom run any light on turbo except for short periods of time.

    This is a great flashlight it’s my first Fenix but I can say I will be buying many more. For such a small light it sure is bright. Also the custom engraving they offer is really cool I got it on mine I like the fact it’s actually engraved & not just printed on there. I do a lot of work at night so I’m really looking foward to using this for years to come. The usb charging ability is a big + also. As is the double clip & carrying pouch it comes with. The battery time is another huge + bottom line I love this flashlight best I’ve ever had I would highly recommend this. It’s got a great weight to it as well.

    I love this flashlight this is my first Fenix flashlight & I can say I’ll be buying many more. For such a small flashlight it is really bright. & the custom engraving they offer is really cool to & looks good it’s actually engraved instead of a sticker.

    This thing is bright!! I mean .. REALLY BRIGHT!. Just slightly larger than my pd32 but i absolutely love it. And the battery lasts for weeks of short uses before i even saw the red indication light come on. Highly recommend to anyone that loves a pocket flashlight

    The only think i dislike is for my long use at work it gets really hot. Wish it had some kind of wrap around the metal. Other than that its a great light

    It’s barely larger than the pd-35 but the battery holds a lot more juice. The turbo mode really warms up the flashlight and isn’t that much better than the
    1000 lumen mode, at least for what I use it for. The usb recharging feature is nice, I always have a fully charged light instead of having to swap out batteries.

    Excellent flashlight. Easy to work, long lasting battery even at high light levels and I like that it turns back on at the same level that it was shut off on.

    Not happy that the USB connector isn’t compatible with my UC35 and UC52 charge cords. Now I have to carry two different cords, and what happens if I lose this one? It doesn’t look like a common cord that I can buy anywhere. Fenix should have kept the cords all the same.

    I added the PD36R to my Fenix flashlight collection and am really happy. The flashlights in this category go into my packs, in the car, etc. Always like to have light handy. The illumination and choice of illumination is great. I like the double clip. I am a big Fenix fan. Keep up the great work.

    I start my security shift at 3:00 am on a 14 acre property and it is dark so a good flashlight is imperative and the Fenix PD36R is the best that I ever had it is super bright on the turbo mode it lights up the darkest areas I have to go into. Thank you Fenix Lighting for such a bright flashlight…

    Best flashlight I have ever owned. Waterproof (already dropped it in 2 feet of water at the bottom of a manhole to test this) Bright as my car headlight, goes forever on a charge, and uses a standard usb connector to charge.

    as soon as I received flashlight I compared to my PD35 and PD35v2 was impressed with the throw and beam pattern. 1600 lumens makes a big difference

    I was hoping that Fenix would develop a flashlight with a 21700 battery and the PD36R exceeds all of my expectations. It is not significantly bulkier than my trusty PD35 and yet has almost 2x the battery and is much brighter when needed. It is like carrying an automotive headlight in your pocket. I suspect it will be bulletproof like my other Fenix lights and it is rechargeable via USB-C.

    The PD36R is also a great show-and-tell for the batteries in my Tesla Model 3 which has over 4,000 21700’s under the floor and puts muscle cars to shame with its acceleration and handling.

    Love this bright light. Gotta have the bigger battery at this lumen level. I wish they’d make a light that won’t roll around, not sure why they’re all round but otherwise it’s great. Side button is difficult to locate but still works well. Love the quick charge profile that I use with my phone. Cords work on both.

    Extremely bright light on high mode but gave it a 4 because it gets extremely hot to the touch after a short time.

    Another well-made product that performs as advertised. Need to use the included case often in order to stretch it out so insertion/removal is not snagging the light. One of several Fenix products I own.

    Great customer service. I ordered a different light at first that I was not as happy with. Was allowed to returnt he light and order this one with no hassles. This light is very bright, has tail cap switch and very small making it an outstanding light for EDC. Can’t recommend it and Fenix enough!

    Good flashlight. Unfortunately, I aimed to replace my TK35UE (2000 max lumen) and this one just doesn’t cut it. It’s nice and all, just not worth the money spent when I already had a nice light.

    Just got my PD36R in the mail today! I’ve been using Fenix flashlights for over 10 years now and this flashlight moved right to to top of my favorites. I’m a plumber so every day I rely on my flashlight in crawl spaces, dark/dim lit basements and under sinks and vanities among many more scenarios. I tested the new light in my basement just to see how bright it is and wow, it’s bright. I haven’t tested it in the field yet but tomorrow will be the true test. Knowing Fenix, I won’t be disappointed!

    Got my pd36r yesterday, I can’t put it down. It replaces my pd25 for a while. Great beam, quality piece. It just feels right in the hand. 1600lm out of this is way brighter than expected. Everthing is perfect, except maybe a moonlight mode, as always fenix makes the best lights, this is my 6th fenix and I’ve never had a problem with them in years and years. Shoutout to their customer service who always goes above and beyond.

    I have been a big fan of the Fenix brand for a few years now. I bought the PD36R to replace an older different brand light. I got it yesterday opened the packaging and I knew I had made the right decision. Feels great in my hand. I ran through all the modes in the garage at 6pm the light was very bright and clear. I could not wait for it to get dark. About 9:30pm last night I went outside. I live in the middle of the wood far away from city lights. I pressed the light on and and the yard and woods lit up let it was day light. Very nice beam and good distance. Just what I needed for my outdoors lifestyle. Thank you Fenix for such a great light. Hard to beat this light for under $100 and a lifetime warranty. I recommend that you buy one today. I am thinking about buying other for my wife. It is hard to see the light very well in one image but I picked this one of it in my hand.

    Message and review from Fenix Executive:
    Simply put. This is a GAME CHANGER! Now in my 14th year of being heavily involved with flashlights, it’s difficult to impress me. The move from incandescents to LED’s definitely did that. The switch from the PD32UE to the PD35 checked the box. So did the move to the USB rechargeable series of lights. The PD36R is the next step in line with those.

    I’ve had the privilege of being one of the people to carry this for a couple weeks while preparing and attending trade shows. The 21700 battery with the increased capacity really opens up flashlights to a much greater opportunity. The runtimes allow for redesigns in the output operations that many of the markets we support have requested. A perfect example is the 800 lumens for almost 6 hours. I can think of dozens of activities (work and play) that are going to be affected by this. This is a solid 800 lumens running for just short of 6 flipping hours. Don’t get me wrong, I like the ability to have the 1600 lumens. That amount of light can always find use. But don’t lose sight of the runtimes. Those beautiful runtimes.

    Some other details on the light.
    -Body is just slightly larger than the UC35. Don’t even realize a difference in my carry time with it. The larger body does help with dissipation of heat. The 1600 lumens still needs heat protection circuitry (testing sample ran avg of 5 min on turbo before kick-down to 800), but 800 lumen mode is absolutely fine.
    -Type C USB charging port is nice. Allows the light to be in that 4 hr charging window versus 7 or 8 for a battery with this capacity with standard USB. Just for additional example; plug the PD36R up for a couple hours and you have more than what you would have had from a PD35 with 2xCR123A. So in a pinch for time this can be a real benefit.
    -I like the dual clip. I don’t see many folks reverse clipping the light to the brim of a hat, but it’s good for holding on your backpack, putting on a car visor, or any light rigging needed for various jobs.
    -New body style is sharp. Has a real modern look and feel. Everyone at the trade shows immediately asked about the PD36R even though it was just shown as another light in a grouping of black aluminum flashlights. They could tell it was different.
    -Light is white. Don’t expect neutral, this is not neutral. Most people will prefer the white, but we have a small percentage of fans that will be disappointed it’s not in the neutral range.
    -Much more of a spot light than the E30R. The light doesn’t have the same LEN’s system as the E30R. This is more of traditional optics system.
    -Operation is just like PD35 and UC35. For those who are already Fenix owners of those models. Just simple on/off in the rear switch with momentary capability and switch modes from side switch. Very simple.

    That’s about it from my evaluation. Again, I will say I love the innovation this light allows due to the 21700 battery and I think it makes it a game changer in the lighting world. I think many of you will fell the same way.
