Measuring 80.5mm x 55mm x 40mm and weighing 69.5-grams (excluding battery and adjustable headband) the HM65R utilizes a durable, strong magnesium alloy body for light weight and excellent heat dissipation. Featuring a 1000 Lumen spot beam which reaches out 163m and a soft, even floodlight of up to 400 Lumens, it delivers epic performance due to it being able to combine the beams for a perfect lighting balance in any situation.
A Fenix ARB-L18-3500 mAh 18650 rechargeable battery is supplied, however it can be run off 2x CR123 non-rechargeable batteries when required. The rechargeable unit is charged via the supplied USB-C type cable, whilst a four LED battery meter, between the dual on/off mode switches (separate controls for spot and flood LEDs) indicates remaining charge.
It has four spotlight modes and three floodlight brightness levels which when used together allow the Cree XM-L2 U2 CW and XP-G2 R5 NW LEDs to supply a maximum of 1400 Lumens.
It has separate switches for each beam control and these function as on/off plus as brightness settings. The HM65R is built to IP68, meaning it is drop resistant, dustproof and waterproof up to 2m, for 30 minutes. It boasts 12.5 days emergency run time on a single charge (flood beam at 8 Lumens). It even has a breathable headband with silicon sweat strips, plus reflective panels for night-time safety that are visible up to 200m.
