Fenix Flashlights released a new light this month that is well worth mentioning particularly if you’re an outdoorsman. The Fenix UC35 V2.0 has a number of features that set it far above the competition. It’s pocket sized, rechargeable, waterproof, powerful, compact and reasonably priced.
I sometimes neglect highlighting the Fenix lights on the website as most of my sales are at gun / knife shows. It’s one of those products that creates a ‘wow’ factor when you have it in hand. I’ve used several of the Fenix lights over the years and have found little fault with them. The TK series has been a favorite for the tactical rifles or a compact pocket light. Even though it’s difficult to really appreciate the lights without actually seeing them, let me share some highlights.
The Fenix UC35 V2.0 is an up grade to the standard UC35. The first change is increased intensity of 1000 lumens which is one bright light considering the overall size of this light.
A clever upgrade is in the center of the small gold button there is an indicator that lets you know the charge status of the battery when you click it on. This is a handy feature that helps assure you have a functioning flashlight when you need it.
The light comes with a rechargeable 3500mAh 18650 battery. While rechargeable batteries are great it’s a pain when you leave the charger at home. And that’s when the battery is going to need a recharge.
The UC35 V2.0 solved the problem by including a built in charger that operates using a standard USB cord plugged into your car or 120V outlet. The USB port is inconspicuously concealed under a small rubber cover near the flashlight head. When the port is covered, the rubber cover sits flush with the body of the light, well out of the way.
Here’s a quick synopsis of the other high-points.
I’ve been using one for a little over a week and have to say, it’s a pretty incredible light packed in an incredibly compact package. With the high intensity strobe feature, it also serves the purpose of an effective defensive device if you find yourself unarmed in a bad situation. At the price, it’s definitely one of the best values in the Fenix line for a high intensity rechargeable light.
