Purchase the Fenix TK75 LED flashlight here!
Hello, everyone, and welcome to Fenix-Store.com Today, I'm going to talk to you about the brand new Fenix TK75 2018 Edition that just released today.
The Fenix TK75 2018 Edition is a rechargeable flashlight that has an astonishing 5,100 lumens as a maximum output, and it delivers an 850-meter maximum beam distance, which is equivalent to almost 2,800 feet.
The rechargeable aspect of the TK75 2018 comes in the form of the battery holder. The battery carrier itself has a small micro USB port so, that way, you can keep the batteries inside the battery holder and just charge them up via micro USB instead of having to empty the battery holder, charge each individual battery by themselves and then insert them back into the battery holder.
It is powered by four 18650s, and it can be operated with only two in emergencies and four Tenergy CR123As in emergency situations only. It is fitted with four Cree XHP35 HI LED that will emit the 5,100 lumens. It's certainly does go the distance in power and versatility to satisfy the various lighting demands such as searching, rescuing, caving, and even outdoor photography and more. It does offer dual stainless steel side switches that's going to offer user-friendly output selection, and it does have six different brightness levels, including two flashing modes of strobe and SOS.
The Fenix TK75 2018 Edition does offer a lockout function, so it's going to be perfect, so you can prevent any accidental activation of the high powered flashlight. Additionally, it does have a built in socket that can either equip a shoulder strap that comes with it or a tripod, sold separately, a tripod mount, so you can make it easy for carrying or mounting the TK75.
Like I mentioned before, the actual battery carrier itself is micro USB rechargeable. It's going to combine convenience and versatility so it's going to be easier to replace the batteries. The addition of the micro USB port will make it much easier to fill up the battery power, as opposed to replacing each individual battery.
It will have a small little LED. If it's going to be red flashing, that means it's charging while you have the micro USB port plugged in, and then if it shows a solid green LED, that means you are fully charged. It does have a small little button on the battery carrier itself. You will just simply click that little blue button to check the battery status with the battery level indicator displayed.
Then when the battery carrier is inserted and the tailcap is screwed down, there is still another way to check the battery level indication without having to always take the battery carrier out, so it's going to be clear and you can be able to be more prepared in the future.
Whenever the light is off, a single click of the auxiliary switch, which is the left switch, the battery low indicator will display a small little LED that will be between the two side switches, and it will display for three seconds. If it's a green constant on, that means you are just about perfect on the battery power. If it's a green and it's flashing, you have pretty sufficient power. If it's a red constant on, you have a pretty low battery, and then, if the red is flashing, then you are at very low battery and you need to charge up. Of course, this is only going to work with the Fenix 18650 rechargeable lithium ion batteries. It will not work with the Tenergy CR123A batteries.
Now, to go over the operation of the Fenix TK75 2018 Edition, it does have the stainless steel side switches that's going to generate six general output levels and two flashing modes. The master switch is the right switch. That's going to control the general modes and the output selections. You will simply press and hold for about half a second to turn the light on or off, and then a single click will cycle through the different output modes. Then, with the auxiliary switch, which is the left switch, that one will control the flashing modes, so what we will do is press and hold for half a second to turn it on or off, and then a single click will select between strobe and SOS.
Then this TK75 does offer the lockout function as mentioned. To lock the flashlight, you will simultaneously press both switches at the same time when the light is off for approximately three seconds, and that will lock the flashlight. To unlock the flashlight, you will proceed with the same procedure in reverse. You will simply just press and hold both of them once more for three seconds and that'll unlock the flashlight.
Then, with this Fenix TK75 2018 Edition, it does have an instant turbo mode and then an instant strobe mode. Within any status when the light is unlocked, you will press and hold the master switch, which is the right switch, for 1.2 seconds, and that'll enter straight into turbo mode, and then you click once on any switch and that'll enter the last used general mode.
For the instant strobe, when the light is off and unlocked, you will press and hold the auxiliary switch for half a second to enter into strobe mode, or single click the auxiliary switch on general mode to enter strobe mode.
The TK75 2018 Edition does offer a back support system that's going to ease on the handheld fatigue. It's going to include a lanyard that will effectively ease the handheld fatigue to make the flashlight easier for long-time carry, and then, of course, the standard tripod socket meets the various lighting demands such as directional light for camping and photographing and more.
The power source, as mentioned, is four 18650 rechargeable lithium ion batteries, so it's very efficient and eco-friendly, and for emergency conditions only, you can operate the TK75 with two 18650s or four CR123A batteries. Of course, it is prohibited to charge with the CR123A batteries.
The Fenix TK75 does have another option for extended runtime. You can equip the extended runtime kit, and that will double your runtime. The runtime of the flashlight can be extended by adding additional body tube segments and battery holder. It is a Fenix AER-TK75, which is sold separately, and so the runtime will be doubled by each segment holder, while the brightness remains the same.
The Fenix TK75 2018 Edition is IP68 rated, so it's totally protected against dust and foreign objects, and it's submersible up to six and a half feet or two meters for 30 minutes.
Now, I'll go ahead and go over the different output modes. Starting with turbo, we have 5,100 lumens that will run for two hours and 15 minutes, and it'll have that almost 2,800 beam distance, an 850-meter beam distance.
Going down one, we have High II, which will have 2,000 lumens, and it'll have a runtime of three hours. We have a High I, which is 1,000, and it'll have six hours of runtime. Then, medium mode will have 450 lumens, and it has 17 hours and 45 minutes of runtime. Then the low mode will have a 150 lumens and 46 hours of runtime, and then the eco mode will be at 50 lumens and have 95 hours of runtime. The strobe and SOS are the two flashing modes. Strobe will operate at the maximum 5,100 lumens, and then SOS will operate at 150 lumens.
Now, a few comparisons for the Fenix TK75 2018 Edition versus the older model, which is the 2015 Edition, the new 2018 Edition will have 5,100 lumens compared to the old one of 4,000 lumens. The new beam distance is 850 meters. Compared to the 650 meters, we have an additional 200 meters in beam distance. With the output levels, the old only had four output levels plus strobe. The new TK75 will have six output levels in additional to strobe and SOS.
The new TK75 is about three millimeters longer, and the same kind of width and head diameter as the old one. The new one will weight 630 grams compared to the old one of 575 grams. The new one does have the micro USB rechargeable battery holder, and then, of course, the old one was not micro USB rechargeable.
The old TK75 was able to display the status of the LEDs' battery level indication, so the LEDs will display the power. If it was low, it would blink at you. With the new one, you can manually check the battery level indication.
In summary, the Fenix TK75 2018 Edition will operate with the four Cree XHP35 HI LEDs that have a lifespan of 50,000 hours, and it's going to be powered by four 18650 rechargeable lithium ion batteries. It will have a maximum output of 5,100 lumens and an 850-meter beam distance.
It will include a micro USB rechargeable battery holder, and it will include a momentary on turbo and strobe mode. The back support system will ease the handheld fatigue. It does have a battery level indication, including as well as a lockout function. It does have dual stainless steel side switches for fast and convenient operation.
It has digitally regulated output, so that will maintain constant brightness. It does include reverse polarity protection, so it's going to protect against improper battery insertion. It will have a low-voltage warning, reminding you when the battery charging is needed. It is made of durable high-strength and oxidation-resistant aluminum, and includes premium type HAIII hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish with a toughened ultra-clear glass lens with anti-reflective coating.
