Another model has joined the Fenix range of small flashlights, this time it’s the LD12R Flashlight which has a top power output of 600 lumens (14500 battery).
This mode has a main LED and side light, making it ideal for camping and other activities. All housed in a small pocket friendly EDC body.
A total of 7 modes are available, 4 on the main LED from 1 lumen, up to the High of 600 lumens. The side light has 3 power levels with a top one rated to 100 lumens.
At 600 lumens the LD12R flashlight can reach up to 186 metres in range, which is quite impressive for it’s small form factor. Run times are up to 16 hours 20 minutes (Low mode 30 lumens).
Dual power sources are available the included rechargeable 14500 Li-ion battery (800mAh capacity), and normal AA cells (Ni-MH or Alkaline).
A concealed type C charging port is built into the flashlight for convenient charging (14500 Li-ion battery).
Fenix are using their premium aluminum alloy body, with a quality magnetic side clip, and HAIII heat treatment on the aluminum finish for wear resistance. It’s rated to IP68 water and dust protection, 2 metres water submersion, and drop tested to 1 metre.
A great EDC size flashlight of just 142mm x 22mm x 19mm (length x head x body diameter), with a weight of 74g (including battery).
7 Power levels with twist action for the Dual LED output
Fenix are using 2 LED types, for the main LED they have the Luminus SST20 Cool White (6500K), and with a SC1818C LED for the side light.
4 Levels from the Main LED cover a wide range of uses, a moonlight of just 1 lumen, then 30, 150 and 600 lumens in High. With 5, 30 and 100 lumens on the side light LED.
Operation is very simple too, with a Full press on the main tail switch for On/Off, half press to cycle modes, with a mode memory. Switch between the Main LED and Side LED by rotating the head.
Loosening the head also reveals the type C charging port, and it has an LED display to show charging status (Red/Green).
