Now I can keep charged batteries available when I need them.
I've used Fenix lights, batteries and chargers for 20 years and have always had good results. Very happy.
However, their packing is unbelievable !
With a sharp razor knife and a pair of sharp heavy scissors, it took me 15 minutes to RIP --I wasn't being gentle-- into 4 batteries, 1 small flashlight and a charger.
Look at the attached image at the debris that will go into the landfill.
I shudder to think of how much of this Fenix sends out every day.
( and it's mostly that rock hard clear plastic that will never break down)
This would have been IMPOSSIBLE for someone with arthritis or weak hands to get into.
Come on guys. How about some marketing manager earning their pay and coming up some easy way to get into your products with less garbage.
We will pass along your concerns to the manufacturer, as they are the ones who do the packaging, not us (we are the US distributor, not the manufacturer).
Charger is a lot faster than the one I had. Batteries are great but they don’t seem to last as long as the same batteries that came with my headlamp from fenix
Order came quickly; no hassles; charger is legit beast; batteries holding up well in first uses. I've got dozens of flashlights with Fenix and this goes down just as they always do... solid company and products! Fenix towing the line!
