The Fenix TK35 Ultimate Edition 2018 torch upgrades the popular TK35 UE 2015, now with a Cree XHP-70 LED to deliver an increased output from 2000 lumens to 3200 lumens.
An exciting new feature is the rotary tail switch that changes between the three mode settings of tactical, outdoor and lockout. Once the desired mode has been selected the light is operated with the larger tactical push button at the side of the rotary switch and the smaller functional button in the centre of the rotary switch. In either tactical or outdoor mode the light is turned on and off by fully pressing the large tactical button and half pressing the button will give momentary illumination until you release the button.
In tactical mode only turbo (2000 lumens) and strobe are available and they are changed between by holding down the functional button for 1 second while the light is on. In outdoor mode while the light is on, each press of the functional switch will cycle through eco, low, mid, high, turbo (3200 lumens) and holding the button down will enter the flash modes of strobe and SOS, which can be changed between with single presses of the functional button.
The light will not come on when it is set to lockout mode, which is perfect for when the torch is not in use. If you accidentally leave the light on and then toggle to lockout mode the battery indicator light will illuminate to warn you of this so that you can turn the light off.
The TK35 UE 2018 is powered by two button top 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable batteries (not included) or four CR123A non-rechargeable batteries can be used in an emergency.
The battery holder that sits inside the TK35 UE 2018 features a micro USB port and can charge the 18650 lithium-ion batteries using the included micro USB cable. Simply slide the holder out of the torch and insert the cable into the micro USB port and the other end of the cable goes into a computer or a compatible USB mains adaptor. A red LED will illuminate on the holder to show charging is in progress and will turn green once complete.
An external battery charger can also be used instead if you require more charging information such as battery status or voltage. A range of suitable two bay chargers can be found under the product accessories tab along with USB adaptors that can be used with the micro USB cable.
The TK35 UE 2018 features a overheat protection system which reduces the output by a few lumens in turbo setting when the temperature reaches 65°C to prevent damage from heat build-up. Once the torch has cooled the brightness will go back to the full turbo level.
The intelligent memory circuit will remember the last brightness setting used in outdoor mode, which is handy if you regularly carry out a task that requires a particular brightness setting.
