Product Overview

The Fenix HM65R-DT Dual Spotlight Headlamp is a new version of the best-selling HM65R Headlamp that features dual spotlights—one spotlight of cool white light, for longer distances, and the other with a very warm 3000K light for better performance in foggy, poor weather conditions. Turn both on at the same time for a combined maximum of 1500 lumens. Powered by the included li-ion battery, this headlamp is USB-C rechargeable and includes a battery level indicator. It is made of a magnesium alloy which makes it 30% lighter than similar headlamps made of aluminum. The HM65R-DT with its IP68 waterproof rating is the perfect option for those needing hands-free performance that can weather the elements.

*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 counter-clockwise to insert the battery with the anode side (+) towards the inner side, then screw the battery cover back on.

 

Charging

  • Uncover the anti-dust cap and plug the USB Type-C side of the charging cable into the charging port of the lamp.
  • The normal charging time of the Fenix ARB-L18-3400 rechargeable battery is about 3 hours with the lamp being switched off. When charging, Low output of white light or warm white light mode can be separately selected. The headlamp will not automatically power on after full charging.
  • When charging, the charging indicators will flash from rear to front to display charging status. In charging process, four indicators flash: below 20%, one constant-on and three flash: 20% - 50%, two constant-on and two flash: 50% - 80%, three constant-on and one flashes: 80% - 95%, four constant-on: charging complete.
  • Replace the anti-dust cap to ensure waterproof and dustproof ability.

 

Battery Level Indication 

With the lamp is switched off, single click either of the two switches to check the battery status, the indicator(s) will last for 3 seconds. 

There will be no response with the lamp locked.

Four lights on: 100% - 80%

Three lights on: 80% - 60%

Two lights on: 60% - 40%

One light on: 40% - 20%

One light flashes: 20% - 1%

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

 

Intelligent Overheat Protection            

The lamp will accumulate a lot of heat when used on high, med and low 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. 

 

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, one of the battery level indicators blinks to remind you to timely recharge or replace the battery. 

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

 

Headband Assembly 

Notice: The headband is factory assembled by default.

Press the rotary press-pull dial, rotate it clockwise to shorten the headband; pull the dial up to loosen the headband.

 

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 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: Poor battery level.
    Solution: Rehcarge or replace the battery.
    B: 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.

Awesome light

This headlamp is incredible! Dusk mornings headed fishing in the summer definitely lit the way! Now winter, the light shines across the lake from our cabin! We were all in awe! Great purchase and buying my second one right now!

Best headlamp I've owned.

Petzl, Black Diamond, all good equipment, but this takes the cake. Camping on the AT, ice fishing in Delta Junction, night beach fishing in St Pete, finding the last bolt holding my transmission in place, this headlamp has been there in outstanding fashion. I was excited by their flashlights, but definitely sold on Fenix with this headlamp. I even bought my wife one after she kept stealing mine.

Comfortable and bright

Needed this light for working in confined spaces and it's perfect for that! The right combination of light for every situation I've encountered.
Highly recommend if you need to see what you're doing and don't possess three hands!

good light unsure about new headband

This light is a bit heavier than other headlamps I have used but it works well for working outside at night and I like the runtime and strength of the beam. The only problem is that when wearing a winter beanie style hat and trying to put the band on top I have to take off the little retract cord so it will fit comfortably over my hat. If the retract cord was just a touch longer then I would not have to remove it. So I would recommend you lengthen that cord just a little for future versions of your headband. Otherwise great light.

We will pass that along to the manufacturer.

Fenix HM65R-DT Head Lamp

I just received the head lamp and tried it out last night. The 2 bulbs and various settings allow for a large number of combinations for usage. I was using the warm light at 400 lumens and the field of coverage was great. Most of the time was spent walking but I decided to do a little run at the end to see how it would work running. The lamp worked great for the short run I did and I would feel confident using while running at 400 lumens.

The white light is also good with the 1300 lumens. You defiantly can see a long way. A much father distance as compared to how fast I can run so it will do me well. I can't wait to try it out this winter while cross country skiing.

Some have commented on the weight. I did not think it was too bad but I only used it for 1 hour. Maybe after multiple hours of use and being tired that opinion might change.

The only downside I have is getting the light to point where I wanted it to. It's does tilt a bit but for some reason I had to play with it to get it to point where I wanted it to. It could just be my odd, shaped head (wife says fat head) but I did finally get it to point where I wanted it to.

Compliments of the head band/strap as it works very well. It adjusted easy and found it easy to manipulate while out on the trail.

I would defiantly recommend this to my friends.

I will include a picture of the use last night at 400 lumens on warm light. Just for reference, the dog is 16ft away from me,
