Great Minimalist light

This little light is a very affordable and easy to use. I'm all about rechargeable lights these days. It doesn't have every feature (no side lights), but it is lightweight, simple & reliable. Side note: I broke the rubber ladder strap and Fenix sent me a replacement immediately. They have awesome customer service in my experience.

Rubber mounting straps are a bad design

I have four of these, and on every one of them, the rubber mounting straps broke. When I got on the chat line, the customer service Rep did offer to send me replacements. I was given a quote and told I could buy some. I cut loops of the broken straps and use them as an o-ring around the plastic lips and then use a velcro strap (the type for organizing computer cables). Just beware, you will need to be resourceful on how to mount them when the straps break, otherwise, they will be useless.

Thank you for the review. I spoke to our warranty team to see if we have received a lot of claims about the straps breaking and they said we might get 1-2 per year. Did you live in a very warm place? We are trying to figure out if there may be environmental factors that may have caused the straps on our tail lights to dry out, or what may have happened that all 4 straps broke. We are certainly sorry to hear that happened.
