Fenix TK40 Flashlight 630 Lumens, Just Got One

Just picked up a Fenix LED TK40 630 Lumens. This Fenix throws some light, i illuminated a target/area from over 200 feet away, i mean illuminated. Runs on 8 AA batteries, its not a small, but it's small for its power. As for LE people, you might have to carry it in a flashlight ring holder, i'm not up on the latest flashlight case sizes, the TK40 is eight inches long so there might be a duty belt case for it.

For hikers, search and rescue, or someone who just wants a strong flashlight, the Fenix TK40 is it.

I have seen reviews of the light that have conflicting run times on the power settings. Do you know if the run times are on the regular beam modes or on the flashing modes? For example, supposedly it runs for 2 hours on the 630 lumen mode - flashing. That is fine and good but that isn't likely how I would use the light. I need to know the runtime with a steady beam.

Looks like a nice light, but I really dug the notion of not having to use specialty/expensive batteries.

BTW neoseikan, every one of your links doesn't work because you put a space in the middle of the address. If you click the link as shown, you get an error page.

Thank you!

Just a news:
We have produced the standard version.
It has a dark grey finish, and a lower price.
Enjoy some photos!
