Fenix UC30: the 2017 - edition
The popular Fenix UC30 was updated in 2017. It is, for instance, enhanced with a wear resistant, stainless steel switch. The rubber cover for the micro-usb port is light-green. Do you prefer another colour? You can also choose a black or purple cover. These colours come with the light and enable you to personalize the light.
Fenix also changed the LED light: this is now a Cree XP-L Hi V3 LED light. This LED light provides a combined beam. As such you can light up everything within a distance of 253 meters. The UC30 2017 was also enhanced with an additional light mode, as such you will always have the right amount of light for every situation close.

The Fenix Hm30R comes with a 18650 Li-Ion battery. If you don't have time to charge the battery in the meantime, take a spare battery with you. But you can also use it with two Cr123A batteries. Want to know how full the battery is? As soon as the light is off click the switch once and the battery indicator will immediately give you the current battery voltage. As such you can find out how full or empty the battery is. This indicator does not work in combination with the CR123A batteries.
