  2. The indicator will display red while charging, and will turn to green when fully charged.

When the temperature is reduced below 60°C, the light will automatically step up by 5% every 10 seconds, and it will then allow the user for the reselection of Turbo mode. 

 

Low-voltage Warning 

When the voltage level drops below the preset level of 3V, the flashlight is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until Eco output is reached. When this happens in Eco output mode, the battery level indicator blinks red to remind you to recharge the battery. To ensure normal use, the flashlight will not turn off automatically and will work till the battery level runs out or the protection board activates. Note: This only works with Fenix ARB-L18 18650 Li-ion battery. 

 

Usage and Maintenance of the E28R Rechargeable Flashlight 

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the light and will void the warranty.

  • 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.

Button upgrade neccessary

I absolutely love this little flashlight, but I do have to agree with the many reviews on the sensitive button. An option to upgrade button types or something would be nice, as a slightly more raised option would be desirable. It can sometimes be difficult to locate the button by feel when it is dark out and I'm trying to fire it up. Otherwise, top notch marks from an EDC novice.

An absolute danger to have on your person.

This thing will constantly come on in your pocket or wherever you keep it and it gets dangerously hot.... like melt a hole in your pockets hot. I've forgotten I had it on me several times until it burns my leg so badly my pants almost catch on fire.

Hi John - please note that this light does have a lock feature on it, to prevent accidental activation.

Lock/Unlock

Lock: with the light switched off, double click the switch within 0.5 seconds to lock the light, the light will blink twice on Eco to indicate locked status.

Unlock: with the light locked, double click the switch within 0.5 seconds, the light will be unlocked and activated on Eco.

*In locked status, clicking or pressing the switch will activate 2 one-second blinks on Eco to indicate locked status.

Or, if you don't want to use the lock function, we recommend a slight turn to the body to disengage the battery, which will also prevent accidental activation in your pocket.
