The Fenix WT50R is a multi purpose rechargeable searchlight that uses a 5200 mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery and a USB Type-C charging port for faster and more efficient charging.
Utilising a Cree XHP70.2 N4 LED it offers a maximum output of 3200 lumens on turbo from the main head light and throws the beam up to 425 metres distance. A secondary Cree XP-G3 S4 CW LED is situated on the tail and provides an output of 500 lumens on high.
A built-in handle makes carrying the torch really easy as it provides a better, smaller area to grip than the large torch, and it means you can easily search areas with the main head light that provides high output plus a spot light beam for long range. The handle also has two metal rings either end to attach the shoulder strap for comfortable carrying when not in use.
The tail light can also be used at the same time as the main beam and points towards the floor while being carried horizontal, which provides flood lighting at your feet allowing you to see immediately in front of you as well as further ahead with the main beam. The torch can also be stood up on the front end which means the tail beam is now pointing outwards which is useful for up close hands free tasks that need flood lighting.
To turn on the main light hold down the button on the handle for 0.5 seconds and once on each press will cycle through low, mid, high and turbo. Strobe is accessed by holding down the handle button for 1.2 seconds from off or on. The tail light is turned on with the cooper coloured metal button on the bottom of the torch by holding it down for 0.5 seconds and once on each press will cycle through low, mid and high. To prevent accidental activation the WT50R can be put into lockout mode by quickly double pressing the handle button and the light will blink to show this has happened. The light can be unlocked again in the same way.
A Fenix 5200 mAh lithium-ion battery is included and is charged inside the torch with the supplied USB Type-C cable. Remove the dust cover from the USB port, located on the tail of the torch, and plug the cable into the torch one end and the other end into a computer/laptop or a suitable USB mains/car adaptor. Four LED indicators will flash in turn before turning solid during the charging progress and once all four LEDs are solid the torch is fully charged.
The WT50R also features a power bank function which allows external devices to be charged up using the battery from the torch. Next to the charging port is a standard USB port so that you can plug in the charging cable for your device and begin charging. The four LED indicators will gradually decrease as the battery power reduces. Always replace the dust cover after using the charging ports to ensure waterproofing and dust ingress protection remain in tact.
As well as showing charging status the four LEDs are also a battery level indicator that displays the battery status briefly when the tail button is pressed with the light turned off. Four LEDs is 80-100% power, three LEDs is 60-80% power, two LEDs is 40-60% power, one LED is 20-40% and one flashing LED is less than 20% power and the battery should be charged as soon as possible when at this stage.
The overheat protection will automatically reduce the turbo output if the temperature of the torch reaches 65°C or above in order to protect the LED from overheating. Once the temperature has cooled the turbo can then be selected again.
