The Fenix HM50R is the rechargeable version of the popular HL50 and offers a maximum output of 500 lumens from a Cree XM-L2 U2 LED. It is designed to be ultra compact, tough, light weight, waterproof, impact resistant and cold resistant.
The torch is powered using the included 16340 lithium-ion rechargeable battery or it can also use a CR123A non rechargeable lithium metal battery, which is the recommended battery choice for extreme cold conditions as CR123A batteries can withstand temperatures down to -40°C.
Recharging the HM50R is easy with the included USB cable, just simply pop open the rubber dust cover on the side of the torch and insert the micro USB end of the cable, then plug the USB end straight into a computer USB port, or into a USB mains/car adaptor.
The HM50R features four brightness levels that are accessed using a single switch on the side of the head torch. Hold the button for 0.5 to turn the light on/off. With the light on single presses of the side button will cycle through low, mid, high and turbo. The last used brightness setting will be memorsied and the torch will turn on in that setting the next time round.
The occlusive headband design prevents the head torch from accidentally falling off the headband from an external force and the headband also features reflective lines on the outer part as well as a silicone strip running around the inside to channel sweat away from the face, which is great for running.
Weighing only 63 grams without the battery and constructed from high quality aluminium and stainless steel, the HM50R is not only comfortable to carry and wear but also highly durable. Easily removed from its silicone holder, the head torch also serves as a useful task light.
