We’ve just taken delivery of the latest LED torch from Fenix. Revered on our forums as an economical alternative to bike-specific set ups, the TK11 promises lots of lumens for your money, as well as long run times.
Using a Cree Q5 LED with a lifespan of 50,000 hours, you’ve got two battery choices: either one 3.7V 18650 Li-ion battery or two 3V CR123A lithium batteries, like the ones on 35mm cameras.
On turbo mode, the light is capable of pumping out a claimed 225 lumens for 2.7 hours using the high capacity 18650 battery, and 1.5 hours with the CR123A battery. According to the UK distributor, the Photon Shop, the light will retain 70% output on Turbo mode for two hours.
The complete kit is £81.80 with bike mount, single bay charger and an 18650 battery. A torch-only deal with two CR123 batteries is £49.95.
We’ll have a review of the light soon, where we’ll be strapping it to our helmet and bars for some night riding fun.
