Extremely small, this flashlight is only 7.2” long and weighs only 7.8 oz (excluding battery), nearly half the size of other flashlights that deliver that type of power. Hunters will appreciate the included red or green filters allowing you to filter the light, preserving your night vision and reducing the chance of spooking prey. The Fenix HT18 will be your new go-to hunting flashlight, and you can’t beat the long distance capabilities. Extend runtimes when using the included 21700 li-ion battery and know its status with the battery level indicator.

  1. The Fenix dedicated ALF-18 battery holder must be used together when using 18650 Li-ion battery.
  2. Do not use CR123A or 16340 battery. Doing so may cause damage to the flashlight or the battery being used.

*18650 /21700 Li-ion batteries are powerful cells designed for commercial applications and must be treated with caution and handled with care. Only using 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 of HT18

Unscrew the tail cap and insert the battery with the anode side (+) towards the light head, then screw the tail cap back on.


Battery level indication

When the light is switched on, the battery level indicator inside the side switch will light up to display the battery status, the indicator will stay on for 3 seconds before it goes off. 

  • 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-L21 Series 21700 and Fenix ARB-L18 Series 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery.


Intelligent Protection

The light will accumulate a lot of heat when used on Turbo output level for extended periods. When the light reaches a temperature of 65°C or above, the light will automatically step down by a few lumens to reduce temperature, until it reaches the output of 800 lumens. When the temperature has been reduced, the output will gradually return to Turbo. Note: The above data is the test results given by Fenix through its laboratory testing. The true performance may vary according to different working environments.


Low-voltage Warning

When the voltage level drops below the preset level, the flashlight is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until Low output is reached. When this happens in Low output mode, the indicator in the mid of the side switch will flash red to remind you to recharge or replace the battery. To ensure normal use, the flashlight will not turn off automatically and will work till the battery runs out completely. Note: This only works with Fenix ARB-L21 Series 21700 and Fenix ARB-L18 Series 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery.


Usage and Maintenance of the Fenix HT18 Long Distance Hunting Flashlight

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the light and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using an excellent quality battery.
  • If the light will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery, or the light could be damaged by electrolyte leakage or battery explosion.
  • Li-ion battery needs to be charged even if the battery is not exhausted, charge immediately when the battery is exhausted; it has no memory effect.
  • Unscrew the tail cap half a turn 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 battery (Ensure battery is inserted according to the manufacturer’s specifications). 
    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 your authorized distributor.

The Fenix Flashlight people.
I like to have fun when I write but the subject is sincere.
About 18 years ago I started doing security work. Of course I would need a flashlight. The only flashlight I ever bought was the pack of 2 at Walmart. Who knew!! Lol
Anyhow, I seriously went through 12 flashlight light. Different manufacturers,rechargeable, not rechargeable, 1000 lumens 5000 lumens, wide throw, long throw, military grade, run over it with a truck grade. Really!!
So one day I see this tiny add somewhere that says Fenix flashlights. You didn't run it over, you didn't freeze it, it drop it in water. Thank you!!!! You sold me on the facts and didn't try gimmicks. So I ordered a HT18. That's what it is now. It used to have green and red light built in. Never had a need for that So no tears here. That was 18 years ago. I felt like I found gold. That flashlight was so so so much more than expected. The 12 others I bought, Junk. Well a couple good but broke so fast. Poor quality. I had that light for 6 years before I lost it. I know who took it but when you find a Fenix flashlight, you keep it.
And by the way, everyone, and I do mean everyone who borrowed, or just held it to check it out loved it!!! All complimented how bright, heavy and the amazing throw. Hope you have time because this is going to go on a bit. I had to stop lending it out because amazingly people seem to forget to return so I have to baby sit my flashlight. This is the truth. You find a Fenix, you keep it! 3 years later, again, I lost it. The 2nd one, no lie, I must have dropped that one 30 times in 2 years. I even dropped it on the rocks at big bear and it rolled into the water. No problem. Worked without issue. The other ones wouldn't have even made it to the water.
Then at my daughter's house, my grandson found the light and worried he would shine into his eyes, my son in law put it away. You find a Fenix Flashlight, you keep it. Never to be seen again. I ask the whole family and NOBODY seen it. Fenix Flashlights are even magic. They just disappear. Everyone always knows where the Walmart flashlights are. They never get lost. No one keeps those.
Finally I got my new replacement and it's going to be kept in my gun safe when not using. Thank for the Superior product and the truth of what your selling.


Love it.

Excellent light, very satisfied

It has been almost a year a since I bought this flashlight. After regular use, the flashlight holds up really well. I live close to the mountains and test the flashlight regularly. This flashlight has incredible throw and is excellent for spotting objects at distances that regular flashlights can't reach. The beam is very focused. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase. You cannot go wrong by purchasing this flashlight. It is well worth the money. Quality makes the difference, I got what I payed for and I am very satisfied.
