To commemorate their 20th anniversary, Fenix have released a limited edition model that is unique and beautifully designed with two different colours available. Only 2500 torches have been produced worldwide, and each one has its unique number engraved on the top of the key ring attachment.
They have pulled out all the stops when they produced the APEX 20, with a body made from TC4 titanium alloy to provide strength and excellent corrosion resistance, as well as being lightweight. The two tone texture oxidised design is another unique element, and other features include a flywheel control switch, a USB-C charging port and both white and red outputs.
Two LEDs are housed in the front of the torch, with the Cree XP-L HI V2 LED producing 760 lumens white light on turbo with a range of up to 86 metres and the Cree XQ-E LED producing a maximum of 100 lumens red light with 25 metres beam range. The red light is useful for low level lighting, preserving night vision and activities such as astronomy or animal spotting.
It is powered by a built-in 500 mAh lithium polymer rechargeable battery which is recharged via the USB-C charging port located on the side of the torch. Lift the dust cover and plug in the included USB-C cable at one end and plug the other end into a standard USB-A port or a compatible USB adaptor. The charging indicator lights on the body will begin to flash in turn to show charging is in progress, and once charging is complete all four lights will be solid after approximately 2 hours.
The side flywheel switch activates the white light by constantly rotating it forward to unlock it and then it can be rotated forwards and backwards to cycle through the modes, and fully rotating backwards will turn the light off. To access the red light from off instead, constantly rotate the switch backwards to turn on the red light and then it can be rotated to cycle the modes, with fully rotating forwards to turn the light off.
Constant rotation is required to first turn the torch on, as this protects the torch from accidental activation if it were to be rotated slightly in a pocket or bag.
Four blue LED battery level indicators display the battery status for 3 seconds when the switch is rotated slightly with the light off. Four lights is 100-80%, three lights is 80-60%, two lights is 60-40%, one light is 40-20% and one flashing light is 20-1%. There is also a low battery voltage warning function which is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level when the voltage drops below the preset level. Once it reaches low output one light will blink to remind you to charge the battery.
Intelligent overheat protection will automatically downshift the brightness output when the torch is used for extended periods in the turbo and high setting and the temperature reaches 60°. Once the torch is cooled the higher outputs can be used again.
Weighing only 61 grams and measuring the size of a lighter, the APEX 20 can easily be suspended from the included neck lanyard via the key ring hole on the torch for easy carrying.
The torch is supplied in a sleek 20th Anniversary slide out box, perfect for storing when not in use to keep your limited edition torch protected.
