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.

*18650Li-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 for the TK26R Tactical Flashlight

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

Battery level indication

When the light is switched on, the battery level indicator inside the side switch 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-L18 Series 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery.

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 in the mid of the functional side switch 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-L18 Series 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery.

Charging the TK26R Tactical 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 ).


  1. The normal charging time of the included Fenix ARB-L18-3500 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. Low output can be turned on/off by functional side switch while charging. There will be no response upon operation of tail switches while charging. If the tactical tail switch is mistakenly operated during charging process, then unplug the charging cable and press the tactical tail switch to begin charging again.

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 to reduce temperature. When the temperature is reduced, the output will gradually return to Turbo.

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.


  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.

  1. Evan Kron (verified owner)

    Quality product.

  2. Elliott (verified owner)

    If you need red light, get the TK25 Red instead. I got two of those now. The on/off button on TK26r is hard to press especially when its position is closest to your thumb. The brightness selection button, on the other hand is way too easy to change by mistake. To me, the red and green LED were placed there as an afterthought. The red/green beam are uneven and unpleasant. On the plus side, it is rechargeable so you don’t have to take out the battery. The spot light throws very long distance but it’s a bit narrow for me.

  3. Gerald (verified owner)

    Solid and well built, very bright. Even though the E35 states that it is brighter, this one has a more focused beam. Not disappointed.

  4. Shane Harvey (verified owner)

    have purchased multiple Fenix lights, I have never had a problem with any of them and will keep purchasing Fenix in the future.

  5. William P. (verified owner)

    Such a nice pocketable flashlight that can carry its own weight when you need it. Truly worth every penny.

  6. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great light. Tough and bright. Red/Green features easy to access

  7. Brian (verified owner)

    Awesome. Bright and light!

  8. Nicholas Darrell Bauma

    This light is everything you could want and more. Not only for everyday, but hunting as well or camping with the red and green (animals cannot see this color). Battery life is amazing for the size, just grab one extra battery if you plan to be gone more than three days and it is your only light source, otherwise party on Wayne. Cannot recommend enough. Bonus is this will attach to picatinny rail with accessory mount and has strobe for SOS or home defense.

  9. David Fox (verified owner)

    I have had this light for a month now and after using it for a total of 3 hrs run time….lol… I love it! It charged quickly although i didn’t run it very long so that is relevant, and it controls very easily. It took me 10 sec to figure out how everything worked on it and now i don’t leave home without this light.

  10. Brad (verified owner)

    I love it, but one improvement I would like to see. I would like a better charge port cover. It is difficult to get the rubber charge cover/flap to seat and stay seated. Other than that It is a great light.

  11. Robert S. (verified owner)

    This light beats all the others I’ve had.

  12. Robert S. (verified owner)

    This light is bad aas! Bought one for son in law as well.

  13. Seth Beardsley (verified owner)

    Love this light for it’s versatility! A version of this torch with a 21700 battery would extend its battery life (easily earning the 5th star) and improving on its already impressive candela. A 21700 version of this light would make it a legend and easily outclass the new offerings from the likes of olight or nitecore.

  14. ERIC C. (verified owner)

    Great light and as advertised. I have purchased several fenix flashlights and this one has the red light feature I needed.

  15. Ian Wells (verified owner)

    This was my first light from the TK line, and it did not disappoint! There were several features that made an impression on me. From the construction/durability, to the versatility of the light modes and the beam throw, I could see this being a must-have for anybody in law enforcement or military.

    First off, the body is noticeably more durable than most lights in the other Fenix series. It compares to the width of some of the lights with the 21700 battery even though it only utilizes the 18650, and it FEELS like it can handle being used as a secondary weapon or window break.

    The 4 white light modes are perfect, in my opinion. Not too many options, easy to quickly cycle through with the secondary tail switch, and still impressively bright for the 18650 battery at the max of 1500 lumens! And if that’s not enough, the red and green lights are a nice addition. At 200 lumens each, they are hard to miss, even at a distance.

    The beam throw is also worth noting. It’s puts out a pretty precise spotlight, even at a fair distance. I compared it with my PD36R in a dark warehouse at about 70ft and the TK26R beam was MUCH tighter and more defined. Thanks again, Fenix! Another great torch to add to my collection!

    Great light. Strong beam. Good buttons. Nice carry pouch. Red and green feature is nice. Strobe is powerful. Low setting is little too low. Battery life is great. Doesn’t get too hot even with long runtime. Quality moonbeam

  27. Marc (verified owner)

    Awesome flash light I’ve been using it when i Walk the dog in the evening.

  28. R P. (verified owner)

    Excellent light for police patrol. I’ve been using it on nightshift for two weeks and haven’t had to charge it yet. I love the fact it’s a USB because I can charge it anywhere.

    I like the different settings, especially the lowest setting which is really dim and the highest setting which is as powerful as my car spotlight. The settings are just an easy click.

    Quality is great, but I’ve only had it for a few weeks so probably too soon for a full review. Also I haven’t dropped it yet, so not sure if it’s as durable as it feels. After my Streamlight broke again from a three foot drop on carpet, I decided to try this light.

    So far it is the best light I’ve used in my 20+ year career. Should have gotten one of these long ago.

  29. Jesse A. (verified owner)

    Great light but bad battery life

  30. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Very happy with the purchase. I had to replace my old PD35 and bought this. Contacted customer service and also had my 35 replaced free of charge. Highly recommend!

  31. Chad (verified owner)

    When working it’s a great light but there appears to be an issue with charging the light and battery life. When trying to charge the light most of the time I have to continue to adjust the charging cord before the light finally recognizes it’s plugged in and begins to charge. Also, when starting out with a fully charged battery, I have used the light on several occasions for 5-10 minutes and afterwards the battery indicator shows it’s at less than 50% battery remaining after that short period of time. This is way below what the spec sheet shows on the website in regards to the battery life. I own three Finex lights and one lantern and this is the only one with issues. Normally I would rate their products 5 stars but this light just isn’t up to par compared to the other Fenix lights that I have.

    Excellent product. Very bright, long distance beam. Durable construction and intuitive design.

  33. Cory (verified owner)

    Sufficient throw throughout its range; toggle better shrouded to prevent accidental activation. Red/green function lacks versatility in that selectable luminosity is unavailable.

  34. Anthony (verified owner)

    Great light. Very bright.

  35. Todd Gilkison (verified owner)

    Great tactical light! The independent switch for the strobe is a home run! Great idea! Not a fan of the rings produced in the red/green light but it is a very minor issue. I am a huge fan of Fenix lights and have depended on them for years! Thanks for another great light!

    Above and beyond expectations, use for duties as a Deputy.

  37. Albert B. (verified owner)

    Flashlight works as described however, I bought the PD36R prior to this TK26R and there’s no consistency of function for the control buttons. Not the fault of either unit – just something that will require added discipline to ensure proper usage….

    I use this at work because it has been my go to light. I like all the functions and hope they continue to bring this set up on lights in the future.

  42. Justin Johnson (verified owner)

    The “TK” series of Fenix lights are by far my personal favorite. I lean towards this series because of their build quality. All of Fenix’s lights are built tough, in my opinion, but the TK line is just a cut above them all. I bought the TK26R as an emergency preparedness light to keep in the family car. I liked the red/green options which are great to use in an emergency if stuck on the side of the road. I just recently picked up the Fenix AOT-02 traffic wand to complete the kit. The traffic wand makes a huge difference if you plan on using the light for signaling. It’s a real treat to use while using the red/green colors that are built into the TK26R side switch. I feel like I should be directing airplanes on a runway with this thing! The beam pattern is nice and definitely reaches out a little further than my Fenix PD36R. The TK26R is one of those lights that can serve many purposes and is built to last! It’s tough as nails.

  43. Gordon Saverse (verified owner)

    One of the best flashlights in my collection. super bright, multi function and well made

  44. Steve P. Chen (verified owner)

    Best tactical flashlight I have ever owned. I have Surefire, Streamlight which are all excellent flashlights but this one is by far the brightest and best!!

  45. Tim Simmons (verified owner)

    Just got the tk26r and I love it, I have a lot of different flashlights and this one takes first place. I also bought the pd36r,I wish it had the same tail switch. Is that possible.

  46. Erick Johns (verified owner)

    Not real impressed with the red and green.

  47. Sheridan M. (verified owner)

    This was purcahsed as a gift for my father who was absolutely ecstatic to receive it.

    He runs the security team for some community events and describes this as the perfect size and weight for his perimeter security needs. The red & green options also dually benefit for directing drivers in/out of the parking lot.

    & shout out to Katie Montgomery in the Customer Service department who was a tremendous help getting the light to us ASAP during the holidays when the initial shipment was lost by USPS.
