Product Overview

The Fenix HP16R Headlamp is the perfect tool for those who require high performance and long runtimes. Powered by its included 3000mAh li-polymer battery, this headlamp can blast a combined 1250 lumens from its spotlight. It can shine that light for up to 300 hours on its lowest floodlight brightness level, or even longer if you carry along extra AA batteries. A neutral white LED floodlight produces a warm light for better color rendering. 60° tilt mechanism allows you to place light where you need it and the lock out function helps avoid accidental activation. For all night exploring or on the job demands, the Fenix HP16R Headlamp won’t let you down.

Worthy replacment (& upgrade) to my old HP15UE!

I was happy with the old HP15UE with the back of the head "AA" battery pack, but its time had come & I did my research & discovered the HP16R was the closest item currently available.
I've had it a couple of weeks now & given it a test drive nightly walking the dog in an unlit rural area.
The flood LED is considerably better than the old headlamps tightish beam & more than adequate for power when handling things even on its lower powers. Cranked up its illuminating most of my .67 acre yard too.
The focused beam is similar to the old lamp & instantly available at the press of its own button. It does have noticeably more power at the high end too.
The red low intensity lamp is good for retaining night vision & not overpowering as some are. Its also accessed with the low poer LED button simply by pressing it again.
I've read a couple of independent reviews before buying & was surprised they stated the old "S - O - S" flash wasn't available in the new unit. That's just not so! It has "moved" though. Its now a second mode on the red LED, similar to the use in the E03R Mk2 key-chain light.
The cabling is better organized IMO than the earlier headlight too, it drags to the side less.
The new LiPo battery is lighter than 4X "AA" batteries & so the unit balances better! How long does it last per charge? I don't know, but in excess of 2 weeks even using both LEDs together on medium high settings! The built-in battery check light still shows flashing green (50~85% charged)! If the LiPo drains you can use the "old Faithfull "AA" batteries as well, but in a slightly reduced range of (still perfectly adequate) settings though. The faster for the battery compartment is improved also, its now a cam-lock lever rather than a big bolt. Quicker & easier to use & less strain on the latch & housing.
The rear face of the battery box has several reflective patches as does the strap, & a glow-in-the-dark one showing "AA" polarity! Good thinking as you'll probably be swapping to them in the dark!
My two, minor, unfavorable comparison with the older unit would be the tilting & the battery level indicator positioning. The mount bracket acts as a safety, blocking the control buttons when in its highest position, as do the buttons themselves with a "Lock Out" feature that's been added, but the shape of the bracket & of the actual light housing is slimmer than the old one, this makes it a little harder to grab & tilt when wearing. Its a minor thing though, but worth mentioning. The Green-Flashing Green-Red-Flashing state of charge indicator is atop the light housing. It works fine as does the on on my key-ring light, but if like me, you put it on your head then turn on you never see it because it above your eyes & on the other side of the housing. Simple fix though if you want to check do it before wearing it.
These two minor items cost the last star on the rating, But I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
I've added a couple more Glow-in-the-dark patches myself as is my habit. You can see them in the pic. one on the cam lock & another on the shield over the switches, these are not "factory"

Sadly disappointed

To start off this was my first fenix light. I have heard they were very good lights in all aspects. So I purchased the hp16r for a little over a $100 with tax and everything. I don't know if I just got a bad light or what. But to be honest the light is junk. The battery runs down very quick and it seems like it doesn't take a good charge. Even though the green fully charged light comes on. Now I put it on charge and after a few hours the green light comes on but when I try to turn it on the red light on it just blinks and won't come on any mode. I have a Stanley headlamp I've had for 3 years that cost $23 that hands down is 3 times better than this light. I've always heard you get what you pay for. Not in this case. I don't usually leave reviews but after spending this much money and not get a better product than this I felt I needed too.

Sounds like you have the light locked out. It has a lockout function to prevent it from turning on inadvertently.

Lockout Function

Lock: when the lamp is switched off, press and hold either of the two switches, or simultaneously press the two switches for 3 seconds, the lamp will blink red three times to indicate locked status.

Unlock: when the lamp is locked, simultaneously press the two switches for 3 seconds, the lamp will be activated with 3 one-second red blinks and activated on Red Light. In locked status, clicking or pressing the switches will activate 3 one-second red blinks to indicate locked status.

Also, if it seems that the battery is not functioning as expected, please reach out to our warranty team. 888-775-9996 ext 1, or warranty@fenixlighting.com

One irritating feature

I’ve used one of these for the past few months as a professional aircraft mechanic. Overall, it works very well but with one annoying feature: the battery cannot be recharged outside of the housing on the headband. So while it’s nice that you can use AA batteries as a backup, the battery pack cannot be recharged independently. Why didn’t you guys put a USB-C port right on the battery pack?

I will pass this along to the manufacturer. We are the US distributor.

Excellent headlamp with well rounded features for beam widths and brightness levels. My only concerns are the wires from front to back over time and tight quarters and the weight of the battery pack. Durability, fit and finish are as expected from Fenix; none better. Fenix is similar to Filson (for those of you that know quality brands) YOU MAY AS WELL HAVE THE BEST.
