Usage and Maintenance

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the lamp and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using an excellent quality Fenix 18650 battery.

  • Long-term use can result in O-ring wear. To maintain a proper water seal, replace the ring with an approved spare.

Overall good

Great flashlight for what it's designed intent, but for me a little longer and heavier then i knew i wanted.

Love the magnet base, very strong, and holds strong parallel to the ground. Love the strength of the settings, very bright light. Love the general feel and weight in hand, feels sturdy and solid.

Not so excited about the frail belt clip. Also magnetic charging limits you one specific charge cord. Appreciated previous versions for universal C charger cable. And not keen on the the process for which you obtain the red light functions. You must first go thru the white light to get to red which can take your eyes a moment to recover from in the dark.

But otherwise a really good light.

Thanks for the feedback Nick. The newer lights, including the HM61R V2, do go straight to red light based on feedback that was provided to the factory on prior lights that had the red mode.

Great head lamp

I live on a farm in the middle of nowhere. I use a headlight every single night to check my farm animals or take my dogs out. I got tired of recharging cheap lights that constantly broke so I decided to spend the extra money and purchases headlamp. It has been the perfect tool and almost never needs to be recharged. This has been a fantastic product and it works in many other situation’s aside from just headlamp. I would highly recommend this headlamp.



Battery wont die

Ive been trying to run the battery out so I can give it a good charge over the weekend, and it’s been on for hours, when it gets hot It goes to a slightly lower beam, but I keep turning it back up. It’s been on turbo for the most part of 3 hours and it’s still going. Love this flashlight.

Love this flashlight

This flashlight is really bright, and very useful, I haven’t needed to use it as a headlamp yet, I just clip it onto the collar of my shirt and it works great. The magnet on the end is really handy too. I would definitely buy another if I lost mine, great product
