* 16340 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
Unscrew the light tail and insert the battery with the anode side (+) towards the light head, then screw the light tail back on.

 

Charging

  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 blink red while charging, and will turn green when fully charged.
  3. Once charging is completed, be sure to close the anti-dust cover to maintain the dustproof and waterproof ability.

Note:

  1. The normal charging time of the included Fenix ARB-L16-700P rechargeable Li-ion battery is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes from depletion to full charging.
  2. Recharge a stored light every four months to maintain optimum performance of the battery.

Battery Level Indication
Each time the light is turned on, the indicator will indicate the battery level and will last for 3 seconds.

  • 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-L16-700P 16340 rechargeable Li-ion battery.

 

Intelligent Overheat Protection
The light will accumulate a lot of heat when used on relatively high modes for extended periods. When the light reaches a temperature of 60°C or above, the light will automatically step down a few lumens to reduce the temperature. When the temperature drops below 60°C, it will then allow the user for the reselection of high modes.

 

Low-voltage Warning
When the voltage level drops below the preset level, the flashlight is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until Moonlight mode is reached. When this happens in Moonlight mode, the light constantly blinks red to remind you to timely recharge or replace the battery.

 

Note: This only works with Fenix ARB-L16-700P 16340 rechargeable Li-ion battery.

Good Light

It's fine, not a bad light at all. Bit smaller than I would have liked but it's not as if that wasn't disclosed. Probably gonna grab a other unit of something larger and keep this for a hat/magnetic flashlight. Do wish it had 1 button on/off functionality but it also doesn't have any of the other problems from other flashlights so I guess it's a trade off for the best.

Highest Five Star Rating

Completely satisfied with the Fenix E18R Rechargeable EDC Flashlight. It's a quality product, small in stature, big on performance. If you're looking for something compact, this is it.

Light

The light is not a smooth to operate as in most lights that I have had. There was not a lot of engineering into how to keep pant pocket from turning on the light. However, it’s bright and that is the only reason I would not return this light. Overall I give it a 3 out of 10.

Hi Josh - did you engage the lockout mode to ensure that it wasn't activating when you put it in your pocket? If not, per the Operating Instructions, which are also available on the product page if you no longer have your copy:

Lock/Unlock

With the light switched off, double click the side switch the light flashes twice and enters lockout mode, double click the side switch again to unlock the light.

Great light but the power button isn't very suitable for pocket carry

I have three Fenix flashlights, including this one, and they are great, high quality lights. I bought this one to replace a cheap stream light I pocket carried. Loose, not clipped. This is a great little light that performs exactly like I want it to but the light is easily powered on in your pocket unless you rotate the clip over it. I've run it completely down twice in the three weeks I've owned it. I would normally take the clip off but there's no way I can with this button design. Fenix needs to take another look at it.

Any of our lights with the side switch only do have a lockout function. Per the operating instructions:

Lock/Unlock
With the light switched off, double click the side switch the light flashes twice and enters lockout mode, double click the side switch again to unlock the light.

If you no longer have the instructions that came with the light, there is a copy available on each product page for the lighting products. Just scroll down to the tabs below the runtime charts and you can find options for Operating Instructions, FAQ's, and Compatible Accessories.

Powerful Lil Flashlight

This is a powerful Lil light. It fits perfectly in my pocket and so far hasn't turned on in It. I have 6 flashlights, all are Fenix. They've never failed me in 15 years. Fenix is all I will buy
