The Fenix TK72R is an incredibly powerful rechargeable flashlight. With a maximum light output of at least 9000 lumens this is one of the most powerful flashlights on the market. This is definitely not a toy. Something you realize when you learn that the average car headlight has approximately 1500 lumens; so the TK72R would be six headlights in one!
But not only the impressive light output makes this light so good. The so-called ‘interface’ is also amazing. Fenix definitely though about the controls. You can tame those 9000 lumens with only three buttons and a built-in OLED display will tell you exactly what you are doing. It shows you the light output and burning time to make sure you will always know if you still have enough power.
Between the 9000 and 100 lumens you can switch in steps of 1000 or 100 lumens. As such the light has 90 different light modes! You, of course, won’t always use the light like that, but the fact that you can always switch to a little more or less light without making big steps is ideal.
The Fenix TK72R derives its power from the built-in lithium battery pack with a capacity of 14.000mAh. This is similar to 4 18650 batteries. Also great: Fenix has adjusted the light as such that you can also use it as a power bank. As a result you will be able to recharge your phone while using your flashlight. How great is that!?
The Fenix TK72R is a pretty remarkable light. As a result it is not that surprising that it was awarded with the prestigious Red Dot Design Award.
Please note: before use you need to remove the transport lock. Simply open the body and remove the plastic disc and you are good to go!
