The Fenix CL26R lantern is a the upgraded replacement for the popular CL25R lantern, offering a higher output of 400 lumens in an even more compact body. It is available in a choice of three colours to suit your style, so you can select from black, red or green.
Following suit of the CL23 in terms of functionality, the CL26R can be used in four different ways for versatile use in various situations.
The three main modes of low, mid and high provide full 360° lighting which is great for covering a larger area. For up close work that doesn't require the full span of light there is the front setting which provides 25 lumens of light from just the front facing section of the lantern. For use inside a tent when hung up it has a light on the underside that provides two brightness outputs.
As well as the white outputs the lantern also has a red output with constant illumination or flashing settings. The red light is useful for preserving night vision and helps keep mosquitos at bay when you're in a tent as they aren't attracted to the red light as much as white light, while the red flash will easily attract attention if help is required.
A single button on the front of the lantern operates all functions. To turn the lantern on and off hold the button down for 0.5 seconds and then each press will cycle through low, mid, high, front light, down 1 and down 2. To change to the red output simply double press the button while the light is turned on and then each press will change between red constant and red flash.
An LED power indicator is built into the front of the lantern just above the button and will display when the button is pressed once while the lantern is turned off. There are four indicators in total and when the battery level is very low the first LED will flash rapidly.
The included Fenix 2600 mAh 18650 lithium-ion battery is charged inside the lantern via the micro USB cable that fits into the back of the lantern by lifting the rubber dust cover. The other end of the cable plugs into a USB source such as a computer, USB mains adaptor or power bank. As a back up two CR123A lithium metal non-rechargeable batteries can be used in the lantern, however they must not be attempted to charge inside the lantern.
There's an abundance of ways and places to perfectly position your lantern where you need it. Featuring a threaded socket, you can mount it onto a tripod or other mount, which is perfect for use with the 360° brightness settings. It also features a metal hanging hook so you can easily put it up inside the tent or hang from a structure outside, which works well with the downwards light settings. There is also a magnet for hands free work, such as under the bonnet of your car.
