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.

* An 18650 battery can be used when used in conjunction with an ALF-18 Battery Holder.

Battery Replacement

Unscrew the light body and insert the battery with the anode side (+) towards the light head, then screw the light body back on.

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.

I had a small leak through the window seal, and they immiditly sent me a new head for the light, and it's perfectly sealed. Not only is the light working well, but the customer service is top notch.

Flashlight leaked around lens involving minimal water, but running on high dried it out leaving water spots. If you run on max level while tails standing with some water on the lens you can see bubbles coming out. However, Fenix lights have been my most durable lights I've used, work or play.

This is a FANTASTIC flashlight! I've got more lights than I care to admit, but after receiving this one, it's now my main go-to light. To be honest, I initially wasn't sure how much I'd like a rotary light, but after trying the PD40R v2 I bought for my father-in-law, I had to have one of these. The rotary switch works great, as it takes both the time and the guess-work out of using and cycling through the UI; it's very simple and quick to use....and is a GREAT light to let friends and family use too, as its operation is so simple and straight-forward. The beam profile is the perfect mix of really great spot & throw, with some very nice flood too, making it an extremely versatile and useful light for almost any situation. It's fairly lightweight, yet built like a tank, and the 21700 battery provides great runtime. I also couldn't be more happy with this light's color temperature! It's warm enough to keep things looking natural, yet cold enough to very clearly illuminate the details of anything that it hits. Lastly, I got this light engraved by Fenix Lighting USA when ordering it, and couldn't be more please with the cool results!

Very bright light. The only issue is with the rotating light switch. Very slippery, especially with wet hands and with gloves. SOLUTION: I purchase some black 1-1/2" x 1/2" Medium Size Ranger Rubber Bands to place over the switch. Make it very easy to turn the light on and to change brightness. This is an easy and cheap fix and makes your light very usable

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.

    Best light on the market. I use it every day and the only reason I bought this one is because I gave my other one away

    What a great purchase. I am very active in the BSA along with my son and so I have gone through many different flashlights. I am always looking for the “next great buy” and though this is more than I would normally spend the purchase was totally worth it. The one and only drawback is the amount of heat that this light emits. Though it is to be expected when you are literally lighting up the sky it’s not by any means enough to burn anyone just kind of an annoyance more than anything. But, something I can definitely live with as the results of using this flashlight is more than satisfactory.

    Not the lights fault but would love to stand the light on the tail with a tail on-off button.
