The Fenix RC40 2016 Edition is an ultra-high output 6000 lumen rechargeable torch, designed for search applications.
Featuring six Cree XM-L U2 LEDs and a custom rechargeable 7800 mAh lithium-ion battery, the RC40 2016 delivers a stunning, balanced Rapid-Scan Beam capable of illuminating a huge area at short-mid distances and reaching out to 730 metres without the need to adjust focus.
The battery is charged inside the RC40 2016 via the charging port on the tail cap of the torch using the supplied UK mains cable or the 12-24 V car charger. The LED indicator lights up clockwise to indicate charging is in progress and once charging is complete all four LEDs light up solid.
The tail cap also features a power bank function so that you can charge external devices via the USB port. In this case the LED indicator lights up anti-clockwise to indicate that the battery is discharging.
Five brightness levels of white light are available as well as strobe and SOS modes. The dual switch system means the white outputs and flashing outputs are controlled separately for easy operation.
The right hand master switch turns the white light on by holding for 0.5 seconds and then cycles through eco, low, mid, high and turbo with each press. The left hand auxiliary switch turns the strobe light on by holding for 0.5 seconds and then cycles between the strobe and SOS.
The RC40 2016 has built-in over-charge, over-discharge, over-heat protection and a battery status indicator with four LEDs on the tail cap so that you know when the torch needs charging.
Over-heat protection automatically lowers the output of the torch, mostly in turbo mode, if the temperature exceeds 65°C. Once the torch drops below this temperature it will resume the normal output for the setting you are in
