Nowadays many torches have coloured LEDs next to white. In many cases the coloured light is limited in strength but the Fenix LD75C shows it is possible to maintain the light intensity. The torch is really small and compact compared to what it is capable of.
The maximum light output of the LD75C is 4200 lumens. This is white light. The colored light has a maximum output of 190 lumens (green light). Switching modes is very simple. One switch controls the colored LEDs, the second switch goes through the white output modes while the third controls the strobe mode. Despite the large number of output modes you it doesn’t take long to figure out how the controls work.
A great feature is the battery control that can be enabled by rapidly tapping the ‘C’ button twice. The coloured LEDs show how full the 18650 batteries are.
The four 18650 batteries fit straight into the battery holder. There is no need for an extra battery case. In addition to four 18650 batteries, you can use eight CR123A batteries. In case of emergency the torch also works on one 18650 battery or two CR123A batteries. In that case not all LEDs will work.

*The specification of the light intensity is carried out in accordance with the NEMA FL 1-2009 standard. This means that the values can be lower than indicated in previous Characteristics. This lower value obviously does not affect the light intensity of the torch. The advantage of having the ANSI / NEMA FL 1-2009 standard is that the values can easily be compared with one another and give a true reflection of daily practice.
