Fenix HM71R (HM71R) specifications
Headlamps are versatile lighting tools that provide convenience, hands-free operation, and illumination in a wide range of activities and environments. Whether you're exploring the great outdoors or working on projects in low-light conditions, a headlamp can be a valuable accessory to have.
|Body diameter||45 mm|
|Head diameter||46 mm|
|Dimensions||106 x 45 x 46 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
It's important to consider personal comfort and intended use when selecting a flashlight, as a heavier flashlight may be more tiring to hold for extended periods or less suitable for activities that require lightweight portability. The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for. Aluminium is a lightweight material, which is beneficial for HM71R flashlight.
The HAIII process produces a hard and wear-resistant surface on the aluminum, making it more resistant to scratches, abrasions, and impacts. This improves the overall durability of the flashlight body. This flashlight comes in a sleek black color option.
|Emitter||1 x Luminus SFT70 LED, 1 x Luminus SST20 LED|
|Color temperature||4000 K, 6500 K|
Luminus has established a positive reputation as a reliable LED manufacturer, and their products are widely used and trusted by lighting professionals and enthusiasts alike. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The TIR lens of HM71R consists of a single-piece lens made of a transparent material, typically acrylic or polycarbonate. Its shape and internal geometry are designed to achieve specific light distribution patterns, such as flood or spot beams, by manipulating the behavior of light rays. The HM71R has electronic switch. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches since they require a small amount of power for operation.
The 2700 lm output of HM71R provides greater versatility, as you can adjust the brightness levels to suit different lighting needs. The HM71R flashlight with 13300 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 distance refers to the maximum distance at which the flashlight can effectively illuminate an object or target. The stated throw distance typically indicates the point at which the brightness falls below a specified threshold, such as 0.25 lux.
The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam. Well-focused spot beams can be over 100 cd/lm, tactical flashlights are typically between 20-100 cd/lm, and work lights are less than 10 cd/lm. If accurate color representation is a priority for your specific needs, a flashlight with a CRI of 90 or above is highly recommended. The HM71R with a CRI of 90 is beneficial in everyday use where accurate color perception enhances the overall visual experience. It can make colors appear more vibrant, natural, and distinguishable, allowing for a more immersive and enjoyable lighting environment.
|Modes||4 + 4 modes|
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The HM71R has mode memory. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again.
|Battery||1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
|Impact resistance||2 m|
|Specials||flood- and spotlight|
The power source of the HM71R flashlight is 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator on a flashlight is beneficial as it allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. It helps prevent unexpected power failures during critical situations and ensures that the flashlight is ready for use when needed.
The HM71R flashlight can be charged directly from a USB power source, such as a wall adapter, computer, power bank, or car charger. This allows for convenient and versatile charging options, as you can utilize various USB power sources to recharge the flashlight's internal battery. When the HM71R flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output to prevent further discharge. This helps to preserve the battery's capacity and prevent it from reaching a critically low voltage level.
The HM71R has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. This feature helps prevent overheating, which can be detrimental to the flashlight's performance, battery, and overall safety. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the HM71R flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects.
The HM71R flashlight with IP68 rating can withstand being submerged in water beyond 1 meter for a prolonged period, typically specified by the manufacturer. The impact resistance of a flashlight can vary depending on its design, construction, and intended use.
|Package contents||ARB-L21-5000 v2.0 battery|
USB Type-C cable
The included battery is selected to meet the specific power requirements of the HM71R flashlight, ensuring reliable and efficient operation. Regularly replacing worn or damaged O-rings helps maintain the overall durability and performance of the flashlight.
The performance of the Fenix HM71R 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.
