The Fenix E16 is a compact EDC torch that is capable of 700 lumens maximum output from the Cree XP-L HI neutral white LED.
It is powered by either one CR123A lithium metal non-rechargeable battery or one high discharge current 16340 lithium-ion rechargeable battery of at least 2.5 A, such as the Fenix ARB-L16-700UP high discharge lithium-ion battery, offering different outputs depending on which battery is used. The higher maximum 700 lumen output with the HD 16340 lithium-ion battery and a lower 300 lumen maximum output with the CR123A lithium metal battery. The run-times and beam ranges also vary depending upon the battery type being used.
The push button switch sits on top of the torch and activates the white light by holding it for 0.5 seconds and then each press cycles through the modes of low, mid, high and turbo. Hold the button down for 0.5 seconds to turn the light off, or continue to hold the button for 1.2 seconds to access the strobe function and single press to revert back to the general outputs. The intelligent memory circuit remembers the last white brightness setting used.
The low battery voltage warning function is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level when the voltage drops below the preset level. Once it reaches low output the light blinks three times every 5 minutes to remind you to charge your 16340 battery (this function does not work with a CR123A battery).
Two ways of locking out the torch to prevent accidental activation are possible. The first is the electronic lockout where you press the button twice within 0.5 seconds and the second is the physical lockout where the pocket clip is rotated so that it covers the button to stop it being able to be presses.
Because the torch will accumulate a lot of heat at turbo level when used for extended periods, the E16 will automatically step down by a few lumens to prevent high surface temperature and damage to the LED. Once the temperature has reduced the turbo output can then be re-selected.
Please Note: If you using a 16340 lithium-ion battery it must have a high discharge current of at least 2.5 A, as a standard 16340 battery can not provide enough power for the E16 to function properly at the high output levels.
Stainless steel side switch for easy control
Low-voltage warning function to remind you to charge the battery
Digitally regulated output maintains constant brightness
Over-heat protection to avoid high-temperature of the surface
Reverse polarity protection protects from improper battery installation
Using one 16340 high discharge lithium-ion battery:
Low: 3 lumens; 70 hours run-time; 13 m beam range
Mid: 30 lumens; 11 hours, 55 minutes run-time; 31 m beam range
High: 150 lumens; 2 hours run-time; 66 m beam range
Turbo: 700 lumens; 1 hour, 5 minutes run-time; 142 m beam range*
Strobe: 700 lumens
Using one CR123A lithium metal battery:
Low: 3 lumens; 110 hours run-time; 13 m beam range
Mid: 30 lumens; 25 hours run-time; 31 m beam range
High: 150 lumens; 2 hours, 50 minutes run-time; 66 m beam range
Turbo: 300 lumens; 1 hour, 55 minutes run-time; 93 m beam range*
Strobe: 700 lumens
The above parameters are approximate and may vary between torch, battery and environment.
Please Note: *The run-time is the cumulative run-time with the low-voltage active.
