Fenix Flashlight HL23-G2R5 overview

  • 1Description

When it's time to roll up your sleeves and get to work, the cadet gray Fenix HL23 R5 LED Headlight gives you as much light as you need while leaving both hands free to handle the task at hand. One Cree XP-G2 R5 LED produces three outputs from a low 3 lumens to a high of 150 lumens while the head tilts from 0 to 60° for precise beam placement. A single pushbutton on the right side of the housing controls the output intensity with a simple press so it's easy to use in all weather and conditions, with or without gloves.

Designed for durability, the housing features a scratch and corrosion-resistant Type III hard-anodized finish, with a cadet gray bezel and side knobs, and black body. The housing is impact-resistant to 6.6' and O-ring sealed to give it an IP68-rating, making it dustproof and submersible to 6.6' for up to 30 minutes. The light runs on a single NiMH rechargeable or disposable alkaline AA battery, and has reverse-polarity protection circuitry to prevent damage if the battery is installed incorrectly.

    Fenix Flashlight HL23-G2R5 reviews

    HL23 R5 LED Headlight (Cadet Gray) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nearly Purrfect if you want ONE light, for all times on you, this is it: it's small it's light it's simple it takes only a single AA What do you want with it? Powerex AA batteries ( get 4, at least: they are SO much better than Duracell or Energizer NiMH's, you won't believe it... the only problem I have with them is with my Beatnik drum trainer, which assumes skinnier AA cells?? so I sanded the battery compartment of the thing ( I think the engineer forgot plastic shrinks when it cools after molding ), to get the batteries in it ) A Maha WizardOne charger ( I charge all my Powerex AAs at 900mA, to make them last longer: you NEED to charge at 0.3 * capacity, or 0.3C, to make the temperature-change of the cell being charged, be visible to the infrared sensor the WizardOne seems to be using to tell when charging is done ) --- Cons You might also want to use Armor Etch to frost the glass of the thing, to make it more flood, less spot, light... Fenix idiotically set the 1st of the 3 brightnesses to be brightest, so I always have to close my eyes when activating it, & still get a bit blinded... Defaults should be least harm! it doesn't have an over-head-strap, so if you get migraines, get some sewing elastic & make your own! This is in a nice NEUTRAL white, not those dang ( proper word isn't allowed?? ) garish blue-white that glare-blinds people & wrecks the night-vision of all who are around ( including the forest's normal population ) All in all, I know of no-better headlamp for always-on-one. for industrial situations, yeah, maybe I'd go for a super-bright unit, but for always, this is it... Oh: the reason I prefer the Joule Thief circuit ( dig the Wikipedia item for that circuit -- its name is a joke, but it does the remarkable thing of changing 1.2v into the 3v that the LED needs, drawing higher current, of course... ) is simply because with only 1 AA in the circuit, you NEVER get a driven-backwards ( reverse-biased ) cell, & therefore you never destroy your battery's lifespan by doing that... If you put 2 AAs in series ( /normal/ headlamps ), the & you run it until it's dim, the weaker of the 2 cells can have been driven backwards ( use a voltmeter & see for yourself ), permanently damaging its lifespan... that doesn't happen with this thing... ( : For a bit longer-range ( more Spot focus ) & for emerg-backup, I keep a Nitecore EA1 light in its pouch on my belt... ( when you're exhausted, in a forest, & drop the parts of the headlamp you were trying to get a fresh battery into, a backup, or a lighter, can make good difference! ) HTH! ( : BTW, it switches on in this sequence: * HIGH * LOW * MEDIUM ( continues rotating through, so HIGH is next ) & you hold its switch-button for a second to get it to ON or OFF.
