With the Fenix LR35R flashlights you will always have the sun around. The first thing you notice is the maximum light output of 10.000 lumens. Yes, you read that correctly. 10.000 lumens. This is brighter than the head lights of your car! In addition, the LR35R has an extremely broad 90º beam. Combine this with a beam distance of no less than 500 meters and you know you will see everything you might come across.
Fortunately powerful no longer means large and impractical. The model is designed as such that the LR35R will fit perfect in hand. Because the body is not round but rectangular even children can use it. And with a length of only 14 cm this flashlight is truly a compact hulk.
You quickly notice that the Fenix LR35R was designed for search ops. But also during outdoor activities such as boat and camping trips and even while walking the dog this cool flashlight will come in handy. But like with the sun you need to keep one thing in mind: never directly look into the light. You, of course, also don't want to blind the people around you which is why you should only use the maximum light output if it is really necessary.
Using the Fenix LR35R
You can turn the Fenix LR35R on and off with the stainless steel switch. To switch between the different light modes you shortly press the switch. Is the light turned on? As soon as you press the MODE button, the light will temporarily function in the stroboscope mode. To deactivate it you press the MODE button again. The light will always return to the mode last used.
You don't want the light to accidentally turn on while you are on the road. To ensure it doesn't you can use the lock-out mode. To activate this mode the flashlight needs to be turned on. You click the switch twice. The light will confirm the mode by blinking twice. Now the flashlight will never burn if you don't want it to. To deactivate this mode you once again click the switch twice. The light will immediately start in the lowest light mode.

If you use the turbo mode for a longer period of time the light will start to heat up.
