The Fenix FD65 is Fenix's most powerful focusing torch, delivering a maximum of 3800 lumens output using three Cree XHP-35 HI neutral white LEDs.
A high efficiency TIR optical focusing lens offers a smooth beam that can be easily focused from a 10° angle spot with 54° angle spill light to a wide angle 90° flood light using the rotary focusing ring. The FD65 can produce a beam range of up to 410 metres as a spot light and up to 86 metres as a flood light when on the turbo setting.
Featuring five brightness levels and two flash settings, the FD65 is operated with the dual side switches. The left button has and L for low and the right button has a H for high. Hold the L button for 0.5 seconds to turn the light on in low setting or hold the H button for 0.5 seconds to turn the light on in high setting. Hold either button for 0.5 seconds to turn the light off.
Once the light is on the L button will decrease the brightness setting and the H button increase the brightness setting. Holding the L button for 1.2 seconds will access SOS mode and holding the H button for 1.2 seconds will access Strobe mode.
To prevent damage the FD65 has overheat protection that will automatically step down in brightness if the internal temperature exceeds 65°C or after the torch has been in turbo for 3 minutes.
A low voltage function is programmed to downshift if the voltage drops below the preset level for the torch to remain in the higher outputs and will continue to drop until the eco brightness setting is reached. The torch will then blink three times every five minuted to remind you charge the battery. Another useful feature is the lockout mode which prevents accidental activation in transit. Press and hold both buttons for 2 seconds to enter lockout mode and the same again to exit lockout mode.
The FD65 is powered by four 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable batteries and in emergency situations only it can use two batteries if need be, however do not use turbo or strobe when only using two batteries. Refer to the product images to see the correct way to use two batteries in an emergency.
For carry and transport the FD65 comes with a robust nylon holster and a durable nylon lanyard. There is also a tripod socket on the neck of the torch so that it can be tripod mounted for hands free use.
