The Fenix HM23 is the upgraded version of the popular HL23 and now has a higher output of 240 lumens from a Cree neutral white LED.
It still uses just one AA alkaline or NiMH battery which allows to design to be compact and streamline, with it being slightly small than it's predecessor. The new weaving headband also reduces the weight by 30% thanks to the hollow design that provides better breathability and extra comfort. Another headband feature is the reflective strips that are visible up to 50 metres away and help you to be seen at night.
Three outputs of low, mid and high are operated with the large silicone push button on the side of the torch. Hold the button down for 0.5 seconds to turn the light on and then cycle the modes with each press (the low mode is the default setting when turned on).
A low voltage warning will drop the output when the battery drops below the preset voltage and once low mode is reached the light will blink to remind you to change the battery.
A light weight, durable, high performance Fenix head lamp for general and outdoor use.
