The Fenix RC11 is a compact hulk, great for everyday carry. This compact flashlight has an impressive maximum light output of 1000 ANSI lumens. The included 18650 battery can be recharged in the case of the flashlight by means of an included magnetic USB cable. As such you won’t need to disassemble the light to recharge the battery.
The Fenix RC11 works with two CR123A batteries and with the included 18650 button-top battery. The main advantage of the latter is that you can recharge it, but a CR123A battery is also great to have around as a back-up as it will retain its voltage for at least 9 years when you don’t use it. In addition, it will function really well when faced with (extremely) low temperatures.
Fenix RC11: intuitive controls
In terms of daily use we can be very brief: it works very simple and intuitive. The side switch will enable you to switch through all the modes. To prevent it from turning on when you don’t want it to you can lock the light by quickly pressing the side switch two times when it is turned off. By repeating this process you can shut down the ‘lock-out mode’. The deep-carry pocket clip can be attached in two different ways. As such you can determine how you would like to carry around the flashlight in your pocket.
Incredibly useful is the fact that the magnetic USB cable also contains a Micro USB plug. As such you can use this cable for the RC11, but also for a phone or tablet with the same plug.
Please note: The RC11 can only handle button-top batteries.
