The E30R is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. The best flashlight size depends on personal preference. It also depends on intended use and the specific features you want. The aluminium body of the E30R has excellent thermal conductivity. This means it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components. Flashlight makers widely use HAIII coating. It is durable, resists corrosion, and improves grip. It also looks good. The E30R flashlight comes in a stylish black color.

Luminus is a US-based LED manufacturer. In the lighting industry, it has gained recognition as reputable. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources. The TIR lens of the E30R can reduce light loss. To achieve high light output, it captures and redirects much of the emitted light. The flashlight has electronic switches. They have many benefits and extra features compared to mechanical switches.

Throw203 m
CD/LM factor6.44

With 1600 lm, the E30R flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. The E30R flashlight has 10302 cd. It can light objects at greater distances. The throw is the distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The cd/lm factor is the candela-to-lumen ratio. It shows how concentrated a light source's output is.

The Fenix E30R flashlight is powered by 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator prevents surprise power failures. It ensures the flashlight is ready when needed. USB rechargeable flashlights are more popular now. They are popular because they are convenient and sustainable. The flashlight detects when the battery's voltage has dropped to a certain level. Then, it reduces or cuts off the power.

The built-in thermal control adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "6" in the IP68 rating shows the level of protection. It's against solid objects, like dust and foreign particles. The "8" in the IP68 rating means the highest level of protection. It is against water ingress.

It comes with a battery. The battery must be fully charged before you first use your E30R. The clip is useful to keep the light secured in your pocket. The lanyard of the E30R protects the flashlight from accidental damage. It does this by stopping it from falling or hitting the ground. Replacing worn or damaged O-rings helps a lot. It keeps up the flashlight's durability and performance.

According to the ANSI/NEMA FL1 Standard, we measure the performance of the E30R flashlight 30 seconds after switching on the light. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
