Whether you’re trying to light up faraway landscapes — or just a campsite — Fenix has a light for you.

Headlamps and flashlights help you navigate in all types of situations, bike lights keep you visible, and lanterns cast light around camp to prevent tripping over logs, guylines, and unseen obstacles.

With so many choices and products on the market, picking a lighting option can feel overwhelming — so start with your intended use-case, and work backward from there. Once you decide on the type of light you want, you can dive into features like battery life and luminance.

Understanding the variety of lighting options can go a long way in making your next outdoor adventure a better experience. Below, we’ll run through several Fenix lighting options that can brighten up camps, hikes, runs, and rides.

PD36R PRO Rechargeable Flashlight

Fenix PD36R PRO

We crowned the Fenix PD36R Pro the Best Overall Flashlight for adding dual tail switches to the already great PD36R flashlight. The larger tail switch turns the light on and off while the other toggles through the five brightness modes. When the light is off, the smaller switch activates the strobe function for self-defense.

Those brightness modes range from 30 lumens to a blindingly bright 2,800 lumens. The latter turbo mode lets you see objects at 1,247 feet, which is beyond most use cases, but clutch when needed. Additionally, PD36R PRO can hold that brightness for 3.5 hours. Eco mode can run for 48 hours.

The flashlight has an IP68 waterproof rating, meaning it can stay underwater up to 6.5 feet for 30 minutes. It’s also dustproof and shock-resistant. It recharges via a USB-C port and has an LED for the battery level indicator next to it.

Overall, our testers found this flashlight easy to handle, even in the dark or with gloves, to quickly find the desired lighting setting.

PD25R Rechargeable EDC Flashlight

Fenix PD25R

Another upgrade, the Fenix PD25R is the rechargeable version of the brand’s fan-favorite PD25 EDC flashlight. This flashlight cranks up to 800 lumens at 820 feet of distance, with four other brightness modes and a strobe function. It’s powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery or one CR123A battery. It uses a Luminus SST20 LED, which has a lifespan of 50,000 hours.

The tail cap switch turns it on or off and has a momentary-on function when you only need a temporary look. A side switch on the head lets you select the brightness modes.

As an everyday carry, this compact light is 3.6 inches long and has a durable aluminum body. A two-position clip lets you secure it to a pack, belt, or pocket. Its IP68 rating means it’s dust- and waterproof — you can even attach it to the brim of a ball cap to turn this small flashlight into a headlamp.

HM75R Rechargeable Headlamp

Fenix HM75R

The Fenix HM75R Rechargeable Headlamp is a juiced-up take on the brand’s bestselling Fenix HM65R. It is rugged, packed with lighting modes, and lasts for hours.

It combines power from two sources: the headlamp’s included 18650 battery and a 21700 battery contained in an attached power bank. This creates a one-two punch for incredibly long runtimes. The max runtime for the floodlight is 234 hours and 365 hours when using the lowest red mode.

You can choose from 12 lighting modes, including four spotlight levels, four floodlight levels, and four red light modes. A rotary and button combo switch lets you select the lighting mode. It maxes out at 1,600 lumens with a beam distance of 732 feet.

The headlamp is impact-resistant to 2 m and completely waterproof.

Note: This headlamp doesn’t come with a USB-A to USB-C charging cord but can recharge with your own cable. Otherwise, the included extension cable in a Type-C port will work.

CL26R PRO Rechargeable Lantern


Camp lighting depends on what you’re up to. For cooking or organizing, you want brighter light in a focused area. For navigating a campsite safely, a lower, dispersed beam works.

The Fenix CL26R PRO Lantern lets you adjust your light to fit your needs. Nine lighting modes max out at high’s 500 lumens, which can illuminate 360 degrees up to 50 feet away.

If you need to work on something, the lantern’s magnetic top and forward-facing light can help you see what you’re doing. Likewise, a retractable hook and down-facing light deliver overhead illumination in a tent or from an overhanging branch. A red light mode saves the battery and your eyes at night.

Lastly, the CL26R PRO works as a 5,000mAh power bank for charging other devices.
