Warning: Do not mix batteries of different brands, sizes, capacities or types. Doing so may cause damage to the headlamp or the batteries being used.

*18650 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 cap to insert the battery with the anode side (+) towards the inside, then screw the cap back on.

 

Charging

  1. Connect the USB port of the charging cable to the power source, then hold the magnetic end of the charging cable close to the charging port of the headlamp. The charging cable will attach to the charging port automatically and charging will begin. 
  2. The indicator will display red while charging and will turn green when fully charged. 
  3. When charging, the Eco, Low, Med of white light mode, and all red light modes can be used, but charging time will be prolonged。
  4. The normal charging time of the Fenix ARB-L18-3400 battery is 4 hours from depletion to full charging.

Note:  

  1. The headlamp has a charging protection function. It will automatically end charging and indicating when the detected temperature is higher than 65°C. 
  2. Recharge a stored headlamp every four months to maintain optimal battery performance.

Battery Level Indication 

With the lamp switched off, single click the switch to check the battery status, the indicator 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-L18 Series battery.

 

Low-voltage Warning

When the voltage level drops below the preset level, the headlamp is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until Low output is reached. When this happens in Low output mode, the lamp blinks 3 times every 10 minutes to remind you to timely recharge or replace the battery. 

Note: This only works with Fenix ARB-L18 Series battery.

 

Intelligent Overheat Protection            

The lamp will accumulate a lot of heat when used on High or Turbo modes for extended periods. When the lamp reaches a temperature of 65°C or above, the lamp will automatically step down a few lumens to reduce the temperature. When the temperature drops below 65°C, it will then allow the user the reselection of High or Turbo modes. 

 

Headband Assembly 

  • The headband is factory assembled by default.
  • Adjust the headband by sliding the buckle to the required length.
  • Assemble the top headband to better fix the headlamp. First fix the headband mount to the headband, then fix one side of the top headband to the headlamp holder, and the other end to the top headband mount.

Other Uses 

  • Flashlight: Detach the lamp from the holder, it can be used as a flashlight.
  • Chest light/Work light: With the detachable body clip, it can be used as a chest/work light.

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. 
  • If the lamp will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery, or the lamp could be damaged by electrolyte leakage.
  • Lock the lamp or take out the battery to prevent accidental activation during storage or transportation. 
  • Long-term use can result in O-ring wear. To maintain a proper water seal, replace the ring with an approved spare.
  • Periodic cleaning of the battery contacts improves the lamp's performance as dirty contacts may cause the lamp to flicker, shine intermittently or even fail to illuminate for the following reasons:
    A: The battery needs replacing.
    Solution: Replace the battery (Ensure the battery is inserted according to the manufacturer’s specifications).
    B: The contact point or contact of the battery or headlamp is dirty. 
    Solution: Clean the contact points with a cotton swab soaked in rubbing alcohol.

If the above methods don't work, please contact the distributor.

Q7. Why does the HM61R V2.0 downshift to a lower mode after being used for a while and the higher mode cannot be selected?
A: There are two reasons: 
1. Intelligent Overheat Protection 
The lamp will accumulate a lot of heat when used at relatively high output levels for extended periods. When the lamp reaches a temperature of 65°C or above, the lamp will automatically step down a few lumens to reduce the temperature. When the temperature drops below 65°C, it will then allow the user for the reselection of the modes.
2. Low-voltage Warning

Nothing works, not even customer support

They sent me a headlamp that failed to deliver in any way - didn't work when not plugged in, only has three light modes, no functioning battery indicator.

Customer service has been difficult to get ahold of and slow to respond, meanwhile the very short 15 day window to return this $90 paperweight is ticking down.

Don't make the mistakes I did.

Hi Ellen - I'm unsure as to why it has been difficult to get ahold of our customer service. I'm not sure what number you were calling from, but we don't see any incoming calls from the number on your order in our phone records. We do see you submitted a warranty form yesterday and they are going through those today (we only have one person in warranty/repairs today answering all questions). We do try to respond to people within 24 hours. You should be getting an email on that soon. I also note from your order that you ordered an extra magnetic charging cord, however, it is not the correct cord for this light. Warranty can get you set up on a return for that cord too if you were wanting to the one that does with this light.

Last headlamp you’ll ever need.

Great for hunting, red light great for low visibility. Awesome that it can disconnect and be a stand alone light! Highly recommend it! 4th Fenix light I have and will only buy from this company when I need to trust my gear.

Initial impressions.

This is possibly the best EDC light combo going right now. You get a super capable headlamp package that doubles as an excellent pocket light with an imminently practical feature set, plus it comes with a nice battery.

I've been carrying a different brand TIR style light for my "work" light till now. This one immediately replaced it on the pocket front due to the 90 degree head, rubber free charging port and magnetic base. TIR lenses are the best beam for working lights I think, and this one is very nice and smooth with the light distribution.

The head strap is icing on the work light cake tho. The arrangement of the clip plate and the 90 degree light makes for a lightweight and universally adjustable hands free solution. No more taping up your lights to hold them in your mouth comfortably! Yay! (Don't act like you haven't done that. It's bad for your teeth, stop it.)
The headband itself adjusts significantly to go on a helmet or your kids' head, seems durable as well. Has rubber grippy areas and reflective stuff is very bright.

I can't think of any way to improve this light except to include a charge cable with both polarities of connectors so they work with the older stuff too. I carry my RC series of lights all the time and when I saw these charge port was the other polarity it did make me a little sad. I like this new cable design better than the old one tho.

Fenix's online order and delivery of my new lights was near instant and flawless, nice bonus.

Yeah, we aren't sure why the manufacturer reversed the polarity on the new magnetic ports to be honest.

Nice Light!

Nice light, easy to adjust. Great variety of light levels including red. Used in rain last two nights walking dog with no issues.

Awesome and multi-functional

Love its clip capability to move from the head-strap to say a bag / pocket. It’s L-style where the light comes out the “side” is why I got it, allows it to be clipped to a bag and used more easily than a forward facing light. Extremely bright at max setting and hardy metal construction across the entire body. Will definitely be sticking with Fenix for future flashlight needs.

Excellent

Very well thought out design with magnetic clip and magnetic charging port . I was surprised by the brightness level

So far so Great!

I understand that sometimes things don't work the way we want or need them to, but this time, so far, I am happy to report that the HM61R is proving it's worth. I was lucky to have a nice cashier so I got 10% off. Which is nice because $95 at NAPA is a good chunk for a headlamp. I like it and I'm okay with spending the cash for it. So far. It's been a few days. If it fails me, I will be back. I work in a major US shipyard as a machinist supervisor. Anyone who knows or works on ships already knows how important a good light is, without it you might as well clock back out and go home
