At a low level of 10 lumens the light can last as long as 460 hours (run time is quoted at 9 hours for 2000 lumens and 10 hours at 1000 lumens)
The Red LED is useful for safety or preservation of night sight, it also has the advantage of not attracting insects. This output is up to 9 lumens (for 170 hours) and a range of 4.5 metres. A flashing mode can alert people to potential hazards, this is an ideal working light for construction sites, camping.
The Kelvin range is wide, from a warm 2700K up to a cooler 6500K. Again stepless control on this gives you complete freedom to set the desired output in both power and temperature to a very fine degree. The lantern also remember the last color temperature set.
Dual Rotary Dials, with a powerbank function and magnetic base/tripod mount
Fenix have worked hard on the design of the CL28R, the 2 large ergonomic dials allow quick and precise control of the light output and color temperature. Positioned at the top of the body, they are always within reach, and big enough to easily use even with working gloves on.
A 360 Degree bracket allows full angle adjustment on the body, the base features strong magnets, and a tripod thread so it can be mounted onto a tripod for work or use as a video or photography light source.
Charging is via a Type C port, and can fully recharge the light in around 4 hours, an impressive feat considering the high 10,000mAh capacity of the battery. It is also possible to run the CL28R when it is charging. Support for Power Delivery protocols (PD3.0 and PD2.0) and Quick Charge (QC 3.0 and QC 2.0), for both charging and when use as a power bank. The power bank can be used via the Type C port, or with the additional type A USB output for extra compatibility with many devices. The power bank has over discharge protection, which stops the discharging when the voltage is under 2.9V.
The 4 lights for the battery level have 5 stages, the 1-4 levels showing 20% power left up to 100%, when a single LED is flashing the power is between 1 and 20%.
Weather resistance is IP66 resisting dust and water ingression, and it has been tested up to 1.5 metres drop distance. Encased in a high grade exterior made from A6061-T6 Aluminum with a type HAIII coating to resist marks and abrasions. It’s a tough lantern designed for use outdoors in all weather conditions.
