Review: Fenix TK16 V.2.0 Flashlight
This flashlight turns the darkness into daylight. I descended class 2 and 3 rock in the dark! Not only could I see terrain in front of me, I could see landmarks in the distance, which is very important for finding my way down. I was not descending a trail, but a route which is far more difficult to follow.
The flashlight also has lower intensity modes to use around the house or in the garage. The strobe feature can easily blind an intruder at night.
The flashlight features a tungsten steel alloy bezel that can be used in self defense situations and to break glass if you leave your keys in your car.
What's in the Box?
You get the TK 16 flashlight, a carry case with a loop so you can put it on your belt, a battery, a USB cord to charge the battery, a laggard, and instructions.
How to Use:
The main on/off switch is at the rear of the flashlight. Click it once. There's a smaller round button near the main on/off switch. Each time you press it the intensity of the light increases. By pressing and holding only the small button the strobe mode is activated.
How to charge:
Remove the battery by unscrewing the back end of the flashlight. Plug the supplied USB cord into the battery and the other end of the cord into an USB port on your computer. The tip of the battery will turn red. Once charged it will turn blue. It can take several hours to charge.

This is an impressive flashlight. It's lightweight, easy to use, waterproof (up to 2 meters) and durable. The light is so bright it's like daylight. I will always have this in my daypack.
