*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.Quality Li-ion battery with protective circuit will reduce risks. Fenix ARB-L18 Series battery is recommended.

 

Battery Replacement

Unscrew the battery cover anticlockwise to insert the battery with the anode side (+) towards the inner side, then screw the battery cover back on.

 

Intelligent Overheat Protection

The lamp will accumulate a lot of heat when used at high output levels for extended periods. When the lamp reaches a temperature of 60°C/140°F or above, it will automatically step down a few lumens to reduce the temperature. When the temperature drops below 60°C/140°F, the lamp will gradually recall the preset output level.

 

Low Voltage Warning

When the voltage level drops below the preset level, the headlamp is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until Eco output is reached. When this happens in Eco output, one of the battery level indicators blinks to remind you to timely recharge or replace the battery till the battery runs out.

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

 

Headband Assembly

Notice: The headband is factory assembled by default.

Rotate the dial clockwise to tighten the headband, and rotate the dial counterclockwise to loosen the headband. When the headband hits its maximum length, keep loosening the headband and the operation direction will reverse.

 

Usage and Maintenance

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the lamp and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using an excellent quality battery.
  • If the lamp will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery, or the lamp could be damaged by electrolyte leakage.
  • Turn off and 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 lamp is locked.
    Solution: Simultaneously press and hold the two switches for 3 seconds to unlock the lamp.
    B: Poor battery level.
    Solution: Recharge or replace the battery (Ensure battery is inserted according to the manufacturer’s   specifications).
    C: The threads, PCB board contact or other contacts are 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.

Definitive Headlamp For NightTime Running, Mountaineering etc.

Turns night into day ... if you are doing challenging runs, skiing or mountaineering in the dark ... this is the headlamp for you. Super build quality and fit; excellent compromise between weight, brightness and battery life plus field replaceable battery. The natural light option was a pleasant surprise (very aesthetic) and preferred to the prior broad beam bulb which I have zero use for. The 1600 lumen setting double the range of my previous 400 lumen light and really makes a difference for route finding or high speed movement on challenging terrain such as backcountry, nighttime ski descents.

Great Product.

I really like the light overall. Extremely bright and a long lasting battery. I do have one small complaint. I wish there was a separate on/off switch, instead of having to simultaneously push down both switches to turn off.

Actually if you are simultaneously holding down the buttons you are putting the light in lock-out mode as opposed to just merely turning it off. And then you would need to also simultaneously push both buttons to unlock the light. If you want to just turn it on/off and not put it in lockout, just press either switch for .5 seconds. That will turn the light on or off.
