Fenix E30R 1600lm review. Is it worth it in 2023?
The Fenix E30R (E30R) released in 2019. It uses Luminus SST40 LED, TIR reflector and 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 1600 lm output, 10302 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 203 m.
The E30R flashlight is an indispensable tool in various situations, from everyday tasks and outdoor adventures to emergency preparedness and professional use. TIR technology minimizes hotspots, dark spots, and irregularities in the beam of E30R. This light has 5 modes of lighting. Lack of mode memory means you need to manually adjust the flashlight's settings each time you turn it on to get the desired mode.
It has a strobe function, which is one of the most effective self defense tools available. This USB rechargeable flashlight eliminates the need for disposable batteries, offering a more eco-friendly and cost-effective solution.

Fenix E30R (E30R) specifications
The E30R flashlight offers precise and focused illumination. Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.
|Body diameter||21.5 mm|
|Head diameter||25.4 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The E30R is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for. The aluminium body of E30R has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery. HAIII coating is widely used in the flashlight industry due to its durability, corrosion resistance, improved grip, and aesthetic appeal. The E30R flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.
|Emitter||Luminus SST40 LED|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
The emitter of E30R manufactured by Luminus, a US-based LED manufacturer. Luminus is recognized as a reputable LED manufacturer in the lighting industry. They are known for producing high-quality LEDs with excellent performance and reliability. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light.
The TIR lens of E30R can minimize light loss and achieve high light output by capturing and redirecting a significant portion of the emitted light. This can result in improved overall beam quality, better beam control, and reduced stray light. The E30R utilizes electronic switch. Electronic switches on flashlights provide a range of advantages and additional features compared to mechanical switches.
With 1600 lm, the E30R flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. The E30R flashlight with 10302 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.
The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The E30R is tactical strobe ready. The strobe light is disorienting to the person it is aimed at which makes it difficult for them to concentrate.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||magnetic USB|
The Fenix E30R flashlight is powered by 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. The USB charger port on a flashlight can be particularly useful in emergency situations where access to power outlets may be limited. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.
The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the E30R flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The "8" in the IP68 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.
|Package contents||18650 battery|
magnetic USB charger cable
It comes with a battery. The battery must be fully charged before you first use your E30R. When the flashlight is clipped to a suitable location, it can be angled or positioned to provide hands-free illumination. The lanyard of E30R helps protect the flashlight from accidental damage by preventing it from falling or hitting the ground. Instead of searching for compatible O-rings or waiting for replacements to arrive, having spare O-rings readily available allows for convenient and immediate repairs or replacements.
The performance of the Fenix E30R flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
The specifications above are based on the official data published by the manufacturer, but we also take user reviews into consideration. If you found an error or something lacking in the specifications above for the Fenix E30R, then don’t hesite and signal the problem to us.
