The Fenix HT18 flashlight was specifically developed for hunting purposes. You can, however, also easily use this flashlight for every situation in which you want to highlight long distances. During search ops or climbing adventures, for instance. The light has an extremely focused light beam with a maximum light output of 1500 lumens and a beam distance of 925 meters. This is truly unheard of. Perfect for the targeted search of a prey or person.
While hunting things can get rough. Fenix definitely took this into account. The Li-Ion battery is solidly kept in place with the help of the mechanic springs. The outside of the light is made from top-quality aluminium. This type of steel is heavy and rock-solid. As such the light will continue to function even in the most extreme situations.
Fenix HT18: practical features
Different types of animals are sensitive for different colours. For that reason the Fenix HT18 comes with a red and a green filter. As such you can quickly change the colour of the light, according to your prey.
The included 21700 Li-Ion battery can directly be charged thanks to the built-in USB-C port. A power of 5000 mAh will always be sufficient. Thanks to the ALF-18 battery holder the light also works with a 18650 Li-Ion battery. The switch on the head of the light contains a charging indicator. Each time you turn the light on the indicator will directly show you the status of the battery.

- Constant red: 50% - 25% power
- Flashing red: 25% - 1% power

*The burn time of the highest light mode is calculated at the moment the lamp is switched on in the highest mode. After 2-3 minutes, the lamp automatically switches to a lower mode due to the temperature regulation.
If you use the turbo mode for a longer period of time the light will start to heat up. When the light reaches a temperature of 65°C or higher the light will automatically reduce the amount of lumen to also reduce the temperature. As soon as the temperature drops the light will switch back to the turbo mode.
