Top Customer Reviews
Normally, I'd say buying from Amazon is a good deal and would save you money. But in the case of the Fenix TK45 light, buying from Amazon is a mistake. Here is why.
After owning the device for 8 months, it developed a problem which the manufacturer says is covered under warranty. Yes, I realize I said 8 months. However, the device has a 24 month warranty (30 months if you register).
The problem comes when you need warranty service...and it is not totally Amazon's fault.
The manufacturer tells you that warranty service is handled by the place you buy it. However, Amazon does not provide warranty service once you are outside the standard order window.
Meaning, you could either ship it to China yourself (good luck), or you should have bought from a different reseller.
I am not placing the whole blame on Amazon. It is not their fault the light developed a defect. But if you want this light, or any Fenix light, buy from a different reseller, whether on Amazon's site or not, so you can get a decent warranty.
I regret doing that now.
**Updated 8/31/11 - To my pleasant surprise, I was contacted by a representative of Fenix offering a RMA for me to send the unit in for repair even though I did not buy from him. I shipped it yesterday with an expected return of about 10 business days. Once I hear back and if it comes back working, I will update again and increase the star rating.
**Updated 9/3/11 - Fenix came through! Today, I received, not my repaired TK45, but a new one in the box! I am upping this to 4 stars. If Amazon had been the one to make this all happen, it would be 5. So Fenix gets 5, Amazon 4.
I stumbled across the Fenix TK45 while checking amazon.com and was quite shocked to see the maximum output rated at 760 lumens! (and I thought my 110 lumens T4 was bright!). I was a bit nervous about going for "Made in China" product! (well go to admitt I have a unwavering bias towards Made in U.S.A. products, thanks to my 4 years of under-grad college life in the U.S.). Any way TK45 was reviewed quite favorably on both amazon.com as well as other internet forums. So I took the plunge with it, neglecting models from Surefire and EagleTac.
I have had the light for two weeks. I primarily use it as personal companion in underground work (I run 4 different subterranean mining operations in the Salt Range region of Pakistan). these are underground rock salt mines (with mine heights of over 125 feet) and underground coal mines (with mine height of 7 feet). So far the TK45 has performed outstanding in these areas. I will make an observation that TK45 is ideally suited for tight, constrained or defined widths areas like tunnels, underground mines, and perhaps not that well suited for longer range applications. Now don't get me wrong, TK45 still has an enormous throw but what I mean to point out is that the beam is quite spread out and not tightly focused. So in any place with a defined width, the illumination from TK45 in front will be 360 degrees of brightness.Read more ›
I don't like the on-off switch, as it drains the batteries. You need to unscrew the rear lid to prevent battery drain, which is annoying. It was likely designed this way so the flashlight would remember what intensity the light was set on, but I'd rather have a hard on/off switch so I don't have to futz with the tailcap in the dark.
Still no problems. I never unscrew the battery cap and I haven't noticed any battery drain even after many months.
I've bought a bunch of other smaller Fenix flashlights but if I'm going for a walk and need to cross an intersection, I use this flashlight on strobe mode at the brightest setting to catch drivers attention (Too often, I've seen 3 to 4 drivers at a 4 way stop sign all on their cell phones).
When walking on busy roads without sidewalks, the TK45 on the brightest setting drivers definitely notice me and move away from me (NOTE, I do *not* point the light directly at the driver).
To date, none of my Fenix flashlights have had any problems. One Fenix flashlight dropped out of my pocket in the pouring rain and sat there under leaves overnight. Luckily, I found the flashlight the next day and after washing off the mud, the light worked perfectly.
I keep one TK45 in the car and another in the house.
* Very versatile. 4 light modes and 3 flashing modes. Output ranges from just 8 lumens to 760 (blinding bright)
* Well built and comfortable to hold. Doesn't roll.
* Light spread is wide which is easier on the eyes and better than spotlights for typical usage. The TK41 is more of a spotlight which is better for searching for distant object.
* Light output is white (not bluish or yellow)
* Uses 8 ordinary AA batteries
[Update August, 2012. The price has gone down $35 so I bought another TK45. This one is for the car.]
One of the features that I like is the extremely low lumen output (8 lumens) mode. Normally, there's an arms race (more lumens, more megapixels, more watts) in every product.Read more ›
