When used with its extension, the TK30 offers a remarkable 630 lumens of brightness that can be adjusted all the way down to a modest 12 lumens when you need less light or need to conserve the battery. The battery life ranges from one and a half to 90 hours of continuous use depending on the mode. Without the extension the light is still powerful--offering up to 370 lumens with runtimes ranging from one to 30 hours. Equipped with a long-lasting CREE MC-E LED with optimized circuitry, the TK30 provides a consistently steady light in its constant mode as well as powerful throw in strobe modes. The TK30 is made of T-6 aircraft-grade aluminum with a type III hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish and features a toughened ultra-clear glass lens with anti-reflective coating for long term durability that can stand up to any environment. The light is equipped with a tactical tail cap switch with momentary-on function, and thanks to intelligent memory circuitry, the light is able to recall the last primary output when activating the light. Built to last through any extreme adventure, the TK30 is waterproof to IPX-8 standard and carries a limited lifetime repair warranty from Fenix.

My favorite feature of this light is it's flexibility - you can run it on 1 or 2 18650 (rechargable) cells, 2 or 4 CR123 primary (throw away) cells, unscrew it in the middle to do a rapid battery changeout or convert the length of the light, and although a bit difficult to master, you can select 6 different operating modes by signalling the digital driver circuit in the head. This means I can keep a box of 18650 cells on hand for an earthquake good for 10 years, or use it every day and charge every 3rd day. I've owned it now for a year and am updating the review because it deserves it. This is a powerful lamp even compared to the high end surefire incandescent 250/500 lumen lights without the worry of a blown bulb at the wrong time.
Update - unless you want to do your own spotwelding you need batteries with a bump on one end so that they will touch in the middle - ultrafire makes an 18650 3000 mAh cell. They also make a really nice 2 cell charger to go with their 3000 mAh cell, but the amazon link tool can't find it - the title of the charger is "UltraFire WF-139 3.6/3.7V Battery Charger for 18650, 14500, 16340, RCR123 Lithium Batteries" but if you search for ultrafire charger you will find it - it is not a prime item but worth buying if you use your tk-30 every day.Read more ›
Unless you are familiar with the properties of an 18650 battery, do yourself a favor and consider another flashlight. The Fenix TK40 is considered one of the best lights that uses common AA batteries. You can get it, buy an Eneloop pack here which includes 8xAA, 2xAAA, and a charger for around 32 bucks. Then you will be set. TK40 performace with eneloops (NOT plain ole alkalines which aren't the best for this class of flashlight) should be comparable to 2x18650s.
(math: 1x18650 has 3.6 average volts with 2500mAh = 9 Watt hours. x2 = 18 Watt hours)
(1 eneloop AA has 2000 mAh x 1.2 volts = 2.4 Watt Hours. x8 of them = 19.2 Watt hours)
It is true that 2x18650 = 7.2 average volts with a max of 8.4. But 8xAAs at 1.2 volts = 9.6 volts (if they were in series). But in any case, these lights have transformer circuits that adjust the voltage so that the emitter gets around 2.5 Amps on high mode (the max for these MC-E emitters, both lights use).
Compared to the TK40, this light has more throw due to the bigger head and thus larger reflector. It is also long and skinny as you can see. The TK40 is fatter and shorter which makes it more compact and has more of a balance between throw and flood.Read more ›
Overall I would highly recommend. Would be great for hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities.
I heard back from Fenix support in China. They explained that there is a difference in circumference between the CR123A and 18650 batteries... with the CR123 being 17mm and the 18650 being 18mm. That accounts for the shaking noise. They suggested I use the 18650s instead. I will do that, but maybe also put some black take around the CR123a batteries if I need to use them ever. Hopefully that will not overheat the batteries, etc. I am very happy that is resolved.
I have been using the light a bit. With the extension tube on... I have problems when trying to switch the mode... sometimes I accidentally unscrew the extension tube instead of the mode switching part of the light. It is very easy to do wrong... and when that happens, the light immediately turns off. There should be a way to lock down the extension tube to avoid it being accidentally unscrewed. I need more time with the light to figure out if there are some ways around this problem.
I bought this on Dino Direct for a lot cheaper than from Amazon. It is $84 there now, but I got it even for less with their BlackFriday site promotion that is not likely still active. I suspect they will have other promotions in the future, but who knows. It took longer to deliver than Amazon typically takes.
It is very very bright... it has a very large head and the rest of the light is quite thin. I suspect given the large head size and small body size that it may smash a little easier than most lights... TBD. I put four CR123A batteries in it... and if i shake the light, it makes noise... so I wrote to Fenix support to try to figure out what is wrong and what I can do about it. I had tried to google the answer, but could not find anything.Read more ›
