Fenix HP30R V2.0 (HP30RV20) specifications
The HP30R V2.0 is a comfortable headlamp. Whether you're engaging in outdoor activities like camping, running, or fishing, or working in industries such as construction, mining, or maintenance, headlamps provide efficient and focused illumination.
|Body diameter||44 mm|
|Head diameter||56 mm|
|Dimensions||92 x 44 x 56 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 437 g flashlight is quite heavy for a handheld flashlight. The increased weight can provide advantages such as longer runtime, enhanced durability, and the ability to project a brighter and farther-reaching beam. The length of a flashlight can affect how it feels in your hand and how you can grip and maneuver it. A longer flashlight may provide a more substantial grip, making it easier to hold and control, especially if you have larger hands.
The aluminium body of HP30R V2.0 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery. The HAIII coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, protecting the underlying aluminum from exposure to moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. It helps maintain the appearance and functionality of the flashlight, even in harsh environments. The HP30R V2.0 flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.
|Emitter||1 x Cree XHP50.2 LED, 2 x Cree XP-G3 LEDs|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
The emitter of HP30R V2.0 manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. 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 HP30R V2.0 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.
With 3000 lm, the HP30R V2.0 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 HP30R V2.0 flashlight with 17933 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||4 + 3 modes|
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences.
|Battery||2 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Charger port||USB Type-C|
|Impact resistance||2 m|
|Specials||flood- and spotlight|
The Fenix HP30R V2.0 flashlight is powered by 2 x 21700 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 IP66 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the HP30R V2.0 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The IP66 rating indicates that the HP30R V2.0 flashlight has a protection against water jets.
With an impressive impact resistance rating of 2 m, the HP30R V2.0 flashlight is built to endure accidental drops or impacts, ensuring its resilience and dependable performance in demanding situations. The HP30R V2.0 flashlight can be used as a powerbank to recharge a device, such as a mobile phone.
|Package contents||2 x ARB-L21-5000 battery|
3 cable clips
USB Type-C cable
helmet attachment hooks
It comes with a battery. The battery must be fully charged before you first use your HP30R V2.0. With a clip, you can securely fasten the flashlight to a reachable location, ensuring it is easily accessible whenever you need it. 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 HP30R V2.0 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.
