The Fenix BC30 V2.0 updates the BC30 and is now capable of a maximum output of 2200 lumens on the burst mode and 1500 lumens on the highest constant mode, which is an increase of 400 lumens and 300 lumens respectively.
It is powered by either four non rechargeable CR123A lithium metal batteries or two rechargeable 18650 lithium-ion batteries (not included).
With two Luminus SST40 N5 LEDs, the Fenix BC30 V2.0 delivers the exclusive Fenix Dual-Distance-Beam System that refracts the upward beam to the ground so not to blind pedestrians but also providing light immediately in front of you, where most other bike lights cannot reach. It also has the lower section of the beam that provides the long beam range so you can still see ahead. As well as that it also has a wide beam angle of 85° so that you can see a large area in front of you for better vision.
The light can be turned on and off by holding down the main functional switch on the body of the torch for 5 seconds, and once the torch is on single presses of the same button will cycle through eco, low, mid and high. A quick double press of the button while the light is on accesses the strobe function. If the battery level is too low the higher brightness levels cannot be accessed in order to reserve power and only become available again when the battery is charged to a sufficient level.
The handlebar mounted remote pressure switch also can control the outputs and has been updated for the version 2.0, now featuring two buttons instead of one allowing you to operate the light without removing your hands from the handlebars, and the switch is wireless so that you do not have to connect and disconnect the cable every time you mount the torch on the bike. Once the switch has been paired with the light once it will remember this for next time, so there's no need to pair for each use, thus saving time.
Hold the square button for 0.5 seconds to enter and exit standby mode, and once on each press cycles through eco, low, mid and high. A single click of the lightening switch gives instant access to burst, or the highest brightness setting available depending on battery status, and will stay on for 30 seconds before returning to the previous brightness or any button can be pressed to exit burst before the 30 seconds has elapsed.
The high quality Fenix handlebar mount features adjustable rubber shims to fit a wide range of handlebars and offers a quick detach function. It also allows for 30° horizontal adjustment and full vertical adjustment of beam direction. With both thick and shims it will fit handlebars between 22-28 mm, with just the thin shims it fits 28-32 mm and with no shims is fits 32-35 mm.
If the battery level is too low the low voltage function will automatically step down the brightness and the higher brightness levels cannot be accessed in order to reserve power and only become available again when the battery is charged to a sufficient level. There is also a battery level indicator so you can check the status of the battery which is done by single pressing the functional button with the light off. A green light indicates 100-80% power, an orange light indicates 80-40% power, a red light indicates 40-10% power and a red flashing light indicates 10-0% power.
The light will accumulate a lot of heat when used in high mode for extended periods, therefore if the internal temperature reaches 65° the light will automatically step down a few lumens to reduce the temperature, however the high mode can be reset if desired.
A versatile light perfect for all your outdoor cycling adventures.
