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


* 18650/ 16340 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 light tail and insert the battery with the anode side (+) towards the light head, then screw the light tail back on. 


Battery Level Indication Each time the light is turned on the indicator in the functional side switch will indicate the battery level and 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 18650 battery. 


Intelligent Overheat Protection 

The light will accumulate a lot of heat when used at relatively high modes for extended periods. When the light reaches a temperature of 60°C or above, the light will automatically step down a few lumens to reduce the temperature. When the temperature drops below 60°C, it will then allow the user to reselect the modes. 


Low-voltage Warning 

When the voltage level drops below the preset level, the flashlight is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until Eco output is reached. When this happens in Eco output, the battery level indicator blinks red 3 times every 10 minutes to remind you to recharge or replace the battery. 


Note: This only works with Fenix ARB-L18 series 18650 battery. 


Usage and Maintenance for the Fenix PD 35 V3.0 Flashlight 

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the light and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using only a high-quality protected battery.
  • If the light will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery for proper storage.
  • Unscrew the tail cap or remove 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 light's performance as dirty contacts may cause the light to flicker, shine intermittently or even fail to illuminate for the following reasons: 
    A: Poor battery level. 
    Solution: Recharge or replace the battery. 
    B: The contact or contact point of the battery or flashlight is 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.

Awesome flashlight and customer service!

Just received and tested my new PD35 v3 after a delivery mishap. Flashlight itself is awesome as was Katie M who helped me. This thing is bright enough to probably use mid power most of the time but nice to know that high and turbo is available. This thing is light pup a large room or large area outside with a super bright cool white focus beam but also has a large “spill” area that is very useful. Again, I couldn’t have done this review without Katie’s help so thank you again!

Exceptional upgrade to a great flashlight

Thanks to Fenix Lighting in Colorado for moving me up to this flashlight. Loved the PD_35 and this one is very bit as good if not improved.

Jorge Ramírez
Tremendous power in a small package.

This is a beacon of light in such a small compact form. The quality is high end and would definitely buy again.

Matthew P. O'Malley
Terrific Little EDC

High-quality, precision construction, compact, nice focused beam, durable. Would have preferred an external USB-C charging port; the micro-USB on the battery is clever but less convenient and potentially slower-charging. Would unhesitatingly buy again.

Little monster, BIG light!!

My husband needed a really good light where he is employed. He was struggling to see above his head to monitor overhead equipment and someone had let him use their Fenix. He was sold. It was the difference between day and night for him. He is pleased with the quality and performance of this little monster.
