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

*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 will reduce the potential for combustion or explosion; but cell damage or short circuiting are potential risks the user assumes.

Battery Replacement

Battery level indication

When the light is switched on, the battery level indicator inside besides the charging port will light up to display the battery status, the indicator will stay on for 3 seconds before it goes off.

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

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

Charging the PD40R V2.0 Rechargeable Flashlight

  1. First switch off the light and plug the USB A socket of the charging cable into an electrical outlet, then connect the USB Type-C socket of the charging cable to the light.
  2. The indicator will display red while charging, and will turn to green when fully charged.
  3. Once charging is completed, be sure to close the anti-dust cover. (The light features inner waterproofing treatment, thus the performance won’t compromise even if there is water in the charging port).

Note:

  1. The normal charging time of the included Fenix ARB-L21-5000 rechargeable Li-ion battery is approximately 3 hours from depletion to full charging.
  2. Recharge a stored light every four months to maintain optimum performance of the battery.
  3. The relatively low output is available while charging, but the charging time will be prolonged.

Intelligent Protection

The light will accumulate a lot of heat when used on Turbo output level for extended periods. When the light reaches a temperature of 65°C or above, the light will automatically step down by a few lumens until to Med to reduce temperature. When the temperature is reduced, the output will gradually return.

Note: *The above specification is the test result given by Fenix through its laboratory testing. Actual output may vary slightly according to the working environments.

Low-voltage Warning

When the voltage level drops below the preset level, the flashlight is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until Low output is reached. When this happens in Low output mode, the indicator next to the charging port will flash red to remind you to recharge or replace the battery. To ensure normal use, the flashlight will not turn off automatically and will work till the battery runs out completely.

Note: This only works with Fenix ARB-L21 Series 21700 rechargeable 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.
  • Li-ion battery needs to be charged even if the battery is not exhausted, charge immediately when the battery is exhausted; 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.
  • 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.

Warning

  1. 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.
  2. This flashlight will accumulate a lot of heat when used for extended periods, resulting in high temperature of the flashlight shell. Pay attention to safe use to avoid scalding.

    The new PD40R V2 is just unbelievably bright! I work in the space industry and many of my co-workers have bright flashlights for inspection purposes and night operations. I compared my new flashlight to their’s and they now WANT/NEED to upgrade! I highly recommend getting the new PD40R V2! You will not be disappointed.

    This flashlight is the best. I particularly like the new rotating-switch design; it is very easy to switch on & off and to various levels. I get fantastic illumination of night scenes with this blazing light. So far, battery life is robust. I do use the turbo light level now & then to reach out in the night and smack a dark spot but I am usually operating it in lower levels to best fit my needs. I think this will become my main flashlight for night-painting photography. It is lightweight, a very good size & easy to carry. Fenix has hit another home run with this flashlight!

    Compact, powerful package. Improvement needed in the control ring: 1. Indents for the different positions should be deeper and easier to find with gloves. 2. Turning the ring should be a bit stiffer. Each setting not fixed firmly enough, again while wearing gloves.

    Great light. Before it arrived, I thought the brightness would be the best feature, but the more I use it, the more I appreciate the rotary switch

    The mechanical dial is a little bit “mechanical” and not as smooth as I had hoped. I would like more definitive stops. It’s certainly bright, and will stay at max output for 3 or 4 minutes before the head gets quite warm and the thermal sensor starts dropping the light output. It’s a good light, but I think the PD36 might be a more balanced option compared to the PD40. Although, the extra output when needed is nice to have, the beam pattern is about perfect, much wider and it’s pure flood, more narrow and it would be overkill. Color is a nice white, with no hints of the lower end temps. I like the color of the led and the balance of it is quite nice. Can’t really EDC in you pants or jeans pocket, but when you need a flashlight to lightup the area, this one certainly works.

    Powerful little light for its size! This flashlight has a nice flood/beam pattern for all around use. The twist to change mode feature is nice, however if I could change one thing, I wish I could twist the selector left of the OFF position for strobe, not all the way right. ALL the way to the right to full output I think would be ideal. Just a personal preference. Beware it can get hot quick. It is very convenient for me as it takes the same charger as my phone (USB-C). Battery life seems to be pretty decent. When I opened up the package and turned the light on, the battery indicator level was solid red (50%-25%) therefore I noticed I could not access high or turbo. Once fully charged I could light up anything around me. Grip is ok, it is comparable to a lot of other flashlights, I might add something for a little extra grip. I do like the fact of having a removable/replaceable battery. I will be putting one of my older, bulky, other brand flashlights on the shelf. Solid flashlight, good job Fenix. 4.5/5

    Bought this to replace my PD36. It’s a little bigger than I anticipated, but the ‘lumen bump’ is worth it. I’m not 100 percent in love with the rotary switch, I’ll get used to it though.

    Like the rotating selector. Less hi-tech, but easier to use than a button selector. Q: Why are flashlights, like Model Ts, only offered in black? A: For reasons known only to themselves, makers want their flashlights to be very difficult to find when you need them!

      A couple of the smaller ones are available in other colors, and at one time we had some different colored bodies you could purchase if you wanted something different. I actually don’t have the answer as to why they are almost always black!

    Great light output but does get very hot on turbo. One handed operating is difficult at times. External charging is good but If I need to charger the battery outside the light none of my charger can handle its length. But overall great light for the money.

    Another great 18650 light. I like the twist adjust for brightness, and the fact that it can tail-stand. The only down side is turning the dial all the way activates the strobe mode. I don’t like strobe mode. With other lights you can cycle through brightness levels without activating strobe. When I want max brightness, I just want to twist the dial all the way to the right, I don’t want to have to check the dial and see how many clicks before strobe, and make sure to stop before that. I’d prefer that it took an additional action to activate strobe, or it could be disabled.

    Directed at “Anonymous” on 5/14 – How about you try reading a little. Your review was one of the most incompetent I’ve ever read. Its CLEARLY stated several times there is no rear button. Unbelievable you want to bash a company because you can’t read. This light, along with my pd30r and HM61 are fantastic as usual.

    I like Fenix products……BUT this light is NOT designed well! There is no option to turn the light on from the tail End. They should make the switch in the tail cap lower to provide that option while still allowing flashlight to be able to stand! The advertisement for this light did not highlight this point as well as it should’ve been. I Purchased this light with the assumption it was tantamount to several other flashlights I purchased from Fenix. Turning it on and off and toggling between brightness is cumbersome. I do not recommend this flashlight.

      I’m not sure how we can highlight that it doesn’t have a tail switch anymore than we have. We have numerous images showing it (including the 2nd image), video showing it, and we put in the first sentence of the description this statement: NO REAR SWITCH ACTIVATION OR MOMENTARY CAPABILITY

      As someone who values a rear switch operation I can agree with preferring the rear switch activation addition to this, but acting like we false advertised is just off. I will also add that the reason at this exact time we did not put a rear switch with this rotating dial design is because there is a patent by another company for this type of design that is still active (at this time).

      Thanks for buying our products.

    Excellent light. Super bright, love the 5000 maH battery run time and usb charging port. Surprisingly small size light considering what it does. Only problem is the heat build-up on the brightest mode, really gets too hot to hold very quickly.

    As with most all of the high powered flashlights they all have a heat issue when using. Although tolerable to most, the heat may present an issue for some.

    This flashlight is off the freaking hook! I love it! It’s easy to change the brightness. I would always push the buttons too many times being in a hurry and miss the setting I wanted just to fumble around with the button. This is perfect. This is super bright. It does get hot quick if you have it on the highest setting.
