The Fenix RC05 is a compact torch that delivers an amazing 300 lumens and 90 metres beam range in turbo mode. The Cree XP-G2 R5 LED and smooth reflector produce a combination of spot beam and spill beam for an optimised beam coverage.
Powered by one 14500 lithium-ion rechargeable battery (included), which is easily recharged inside the torch using the provided USB cable which magnetically fits onto the charging port on the neck of the RC05 to charge it. It also has a micro USB so that other devices, such as your phone, can charge at the same time as your torch.
The side switch activates the torch by holding it for 0.5 seconds and then each press cycles through the modes of low, mid, high and turbo. The intelligent memory circuit remembers the last brightness setting used.
Strobe is activated by holding the button for 1.2 seconds and a single press will exit strobe. A lock-out function is also available to prevent accidental activation and is achieved by two quick presses. The torch will blink twice to indicate it has entered lock-out mode.
A low battery voltage warning function is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level when the voltage drops below the preset level. Once it reaches low output it will blink three times every five minutes to remind you to charge your 14500 battery.
The base of the torch is magnetic, which is useful for hands free operation when carrying out tasks such as car maintenance.
Low-voltage warning function to remind you to replace the battery
Digitally regulated output maintains constant brightness
Over-heat protection to avoid high-temperature of the surface
Reverse polarity protection protects from improper battery installation

Tested to ANSI/PLATO FL1 standards using one Fenix 14500 ARB-L14 800 mAh lithium-ion battery. The above parameters are approximate and may vary between torch, battery and environment.
Please Note: *The torch will drop down from turbo setting to high setting after 5 minutes of continuous use to protect the LED from overheating, therefore this is an accumulated time.
CR123A lithium primary battery cells can be used as an emergency back up, however they are NOT rechargeable. Please do not attempt to recharge them in this torch.
