The Fenix E30R is a compact rechargeable torch that offers 1600 lumens maximum output from the Luminus SST40 white LED.
It is powered by one 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable battery and included is the Fenix ARB-L18-3500 lithium-ion battery, but it is also compatible with the other Fenix ARB-L18 battery series. Two CR123A non-rechargeable lithium metal batteries can also be used in the torch in an emergency situation but charging the torch must not be attempted with CR123A batteries inside.
The 18650 lithium-ion battery is easily recharged inside the torch using the provided USB magnetic charging cable which is connected to a USB power source at one end and then the magnetic charging end is held close to the charging point on the head of the torch and it will automatically magnetise and connect to the torch to begin charging. The charging indicator on the magnetic head will turn red to show charging is in progress and a full charge takes approximately 3 hours.
The side switch activates the torch by holding it for 0.5 seconds and then each press cycles through the modes of eco, low, mid, high and turbo. Hold the switch for 0.5 seconds again to turn the light off. Strobe is activated by holding the button for 1.2 seconds and a single press will exit strobe.
To prevent accidental activation the E30R has a switch that sits at the same level as the surrounding metal ring to minimise it being pressed and the torch also features a physical and electronic lockout function. The electronic lockout is accessed by two quick presses of the button while the light is off and the torch will blink twice to indicate it has entered lock-out mode. The physical lockout is achieved by turning the pocket clip so that it sits over the button, meaning it cannot be accidentally pressed when not in use.
A built-in battery level indicator displays the battery status for 3 seconds when the button is single pressed with the light off. It will show either a solid green, green flashing, solid red or red flashing light. A 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 it will blink red to remind you to charge your 18650 battery.
Intelligent overheat protection will automatically downshift the brightness output after a certain amount of time when the torch is used for extended periods in the turbo or high setting in order to lower the temperature.
The base of the torch is magnetic, which is useful for hands free operation when carrying out tasks such as car maintenance.
Multiple lock-out function
Low-voltage warning function to remind you to recharge the battery
Battery level indicator
Ultra thin optical lens to produce smooth and balanced beam
Over-heat protection to avoid high-temperature of the surface
Reverse polarity protection protects from improper battery installation
Eco: 30 lumens; 70 hours, 30 minutes; 27 m beam range
Low: 150 lumens; 17 hours, 32 minutes run-time; 62 m beam range
Mid: 350 lumens; 5 hours, 28 minutes run-time; 93 m beam range
High: 800 lumens; 1 hour, 55 minutes run-time; 150 m beam range
Turbo: 1600 lumens; 1 hour, 27 minutes run-time; 203 m beam range*
Strobe: 1600 lumens
Note: *Due to the temperature regulation the torch will use intelligent downshift to reduce the output in order to cool the torch during constant use, with it dropping to 900 lumens after 1 minute and then dropping by 5% every 10 seconds if the temperature reaches over 65°C until 350 lumens is reached. Therefore this is a cumulative run-time for the turbo output and the torch doesn't run continuously at 1600 lumens for the stated time.
