The Fenix HM70R is a rechargeable head torch that delivers a maximum output of 1600 lumens in turbo mode from the main white output.
The right hand Luminus SST40 LED combines with a textured reflector to provide a balanced beam profile that consists of a central hot spot and a wide area spill light, with a beam range of up to 186 metres. The left hand XP-G2 HE NW LED has a textured lens and provides pure flood lighting with no hotspot, offering a high output of 400 lumens or a low output of 70 lumens. Two red 2835 LEDs sit on the far left and are useful for preserving night vision or activites such as animal spotting and astronomy.
Two settings of general mode and function mode are available, with the main white LED outputs falling under general mode and the neutral white LED and red LED outputs falling under functinal mode. A single button is located on the right end of the torch and controls all lighting functions. Press and hold the button for 0.5 seconds to turn the light on in genral mode, or double press the button to turn the light on in fnctional mode. Once on in either output the light can be swiched to the other mode by holding the button down for 1.2 seconds.
When in general mode each press will cycle through low, mid, high, turbo and when in functional mode each press will cycle through red, mid, high, red flash. Holding the button for 0.5 seconds will turn the light off and the last used setting will be remembered next time the light is turned on.
To prevent accidental activation the HM70R has a lockout function. To access the lockout, with the lamp turned off, press and hold the button for 3 seconds and the red light will blink three times to show it is in lockout. Hold the button again for 3 seconds to unlock the light and it will turn on in red light mode.
The included 21700 rechargeable 5000 mAh lithium-ion battery is charged inside the headlamp via the hidden USB Type-C charging port which can be revealed by unscrewing the cover on the same side as the button. Plug in the included USB Type-C cable at one end and plug the standard USB-A end into a USB power source. The charging indicator will go red to show charging is in progress and change to green charging is complete after approximately 4 hours with a 2 A output.
Alternatively you can use an 18650 lithium-ion battery (not included), however the 18650 battery must be inserted in the Fenix ALF-18 battery holder (not included) before it canbe used in the torch.
When the torch is off, pressing the button once will display the battery level indicator for 3 seconds with either a green, green flashing, red or red flashing light to show the battery power remaining and notify you when the battery needs charging.
The headband is comfortable and adjustable, has a silicone strip on the inside that channels sweat and rain away from the eyes and the weaved design is hollow to not only reduce the weight but also provide more breathability and comfort. On the outer part of the headband there are reflective strips, which are excellent for enhanced visibility, and the head band can withstand the tensile test 3000 times. The headlamp bracket is ergonomically designed to comfortably fit the curvature of the head and it also allows the head torch to be tilted within a 180° angle.
For extra durability and resilience the HM70R is made from lightweight aluminium which provides drop resistance up to 2 metres distance as well as being waterproof to IP68 standard, and also withstands extreme weather temperatures of -35° to 40° (cold weather battery recommended for extreme cold temperatures).
