Who makes a quality headlamp that uses the18650 but includes a red lamp or lens for when you need to save your eye sight in darkness?
To me when you unscrew the caps I can hear the same sound they have a better spring in the fenix so it's pushing on the threading and 2 I like the sleeker design of the fenix. I like hearing the ratcheting sound the Fenix makes when you go up and down to just it it sounds like and feels like it holds tighter so hands down Fenix
I love my Fenix!
Hi, can it fit on bike helmet?
Obviously your preference is the thrunight and this review sure showed it, but try as you might to point out negatives about Fenix they never are actually negatives. And most people in the comments despite your efforts chose Fenix as the better quality lamp.
Great review. Your last statement about the Fenix only being able to handle turbo mode for a few minutes is a big “ turn off “ 😂😂 to me. That’s my issue with olight flashlights. I’m a Fenix guy but if I can’t use turbo for as long as I want, I won’t be buying it.
the th10 loses solely on the head strap alone i can see my self getting pissed off with the dangly pits in my face when i am working on somthing. looks like this guy is bought and paid for.
The lady in this video obviously likes the TN
I got the hl55, I very do like the floody light, perfect when you holding things in front of your face, the th10 will blind you with that spot :)
I've owned both! My choices is Fenix.
I packed three headlamps for a saltwater kayak trip. The Fenix is the only one that survived without corrosion. The same headlamp has been in all sorts of muddy caves as well without fail. And who wants a heavy headlamp?
I'd have to take the flood over the small hot spot for a head lamp. I've seen good quality from fenix as well
If I wanted a thrower then I would get the TN42c, not a 750 lumen headlamp. The Fenix wins for practicality IMO.
ThruRUST! If your talking real life expectancy, Fenix is gonna last longer, won't rust as fast. less weight cause who wants a heavy head lamp?!
I woud like to know if they work well while running.
Fenix for me.
i have the maxxeon 620 comes with 2 rehcrgeblae batterys fits nice on heed has battery pack on back with on off switch
its alumenum well made u can ajust barrel comes with hard hat ajustment
судя по обзору Thrunite лучше, буду брать его
My Thrunite TH10 headstraps don't do what yours do , but then that's because I know how to set them up so they don't flap around !
Läuft die Lampe noch? Bin auch am überlegen mir so eine in meine Sammlung zu stecken.
Hat jemand von euch die Fenix hl60r ? Wenn ja, ist sie zu empfehlen? Danke
Kann man damit auch tauchen?
Damn it's just for 42.59 dollars with coupon code: FHL55
I hope it will be useful
es gibt ja beim kauf zwei Ladegeräte zur Auswahl wodurch unterscheiden sie die beiden eigentlich ?? kannst du mir das sagen
Hi Fritz! Bist du mit der Fenix HL55 noch zufrieden? Ist die Neigung mittlerweile leichter zu verstellen oder wackelt mittlerweile etwas? Lg Martin
Super Bewertung super review
Ich denke meine Wahl für eine Kopflampe ist gefallen.
Die Lampe HL55 ist nun da ! Tolles Flood-Licht, wie die früheren Halogen-Videolampen. Sogar der Farbton erinnert an Halogenlampe. Aber der Burst-Modus ist nur geschätzte 12% mehr zu den 420 Lumen ? Es ist nur ein kleiner Unterschied. Ist das normal ? Ich denke, dass es nur maximal 550 Lumen sind und keine 900 Lumen. Ist meine kaputt ? Sollte sich die Helligkeit im Burst Modus nicht quasi verdoppeln ?
Hi there, this is a great video .
On the video 3:36 ,where can I buy the helmet mount ?
Is it included when I buy this product? thx
macht einen sehr guten Eindruck !
Really helpful review, thanks for sharing :)
Does the hl55 have a red light setting? Thanks
Thank you for sharing!
I am Petzl lover too start from use Petzl zoom many years ago, but now preparing to have a Fenix 55 or 60.
Seems to be a good decent bright headlamp bud I subbed your channel could you sub mine back thanks man.
@ghostses, thank you for your excellent video. It's the 1st time that i am watching a headlamp video. I've just started trail running 2 months ago & this Fenix HL55 is recommended by my friend (who motivated me to trail run) who's using it.
I think that's the most informative review I've ever seen. Every aspect of the review touched on every question I had concerning this light. Just ordered mine. Thanks.
Thank you very much for the very useful review. We really appreciate it! :-)
Great review! Very precise! I work in a "high risk" area in the nighttime hours. Purchased this product. Can't wait to see how it will work for me. I got the complete kit. Thanks again buddy!
Big help. Great review. Thank you. I just happen to have the same handheld flashlight you showed in the video which just happens to take the rechargeable 18650 cells. I already have the charger so this head light will work perfectly. If not for your outstanding review, I would probably have made a different choice. You Sir, are very much appreciated.
It helped me in many ways, thanks :)
Big help. Thanks
Looks like a nice light to add to my collection, had a nitecore hc50 but didn't like it so sold it. How do you like this hl55?
Sorry, I just heard "phoenix" and didn't see the name "Fenix", I'm gonna on stand in a corner now.
I looked under Phoenix-store.com and I'm not sure if thats the right address, could I bother you to put a link to it. Also, if you review items on Amazon they give you a little bit of coin for the refer. Just a great way to make some $$$. R
I like the burst mode lol. Do they make one that you can stay in a 900 lumen mode without damaging the light ? I like it bright for a longer period sometimes , but don't want to carry a torch.
I got mine today. What a jewel! Thanks for the great review.
Great review that gives me more motivation to purchase this light. Thanks for sharing!
... thanks - very good review - I've been looking for one that takes 18650 without a big battery box in the back and wires running along the strap. This HL55 really fits the bill, looks very comfortable too. Is it stable without the top strap - i've used my HL30 a lot without the top strap and it's fine, but don't know if the HL55 body + battery weighs substantially more.
I knew you would get one!! L(@¿@)L Great review and they really throw some sparks. For you I can see getting the HD55 because of the multi-use of the 18650/b-x batteries...smart, plus a really great/excellent product of course.
This semi-new battery size and tech bothers me a bit though. I know its basically 2-CR123's and wonder where the market is going with the batteries costing 1/3-1/2 the tool cost. I remember when the CR's came out and they were great long lasting but ended up mainly in the photo/camera market, but had to sign over one of your children to buy them ($7-10per) and still went into the waste stream, hopefully to be recycled. One of my headlamps use them but became battery poor when using them for telescope night work...could have bought some high end optics for what I spent one summer. Ever since that last product I designed around a LiPo I have been keeping an eye on the battery tech/markets and there are some exciting organic things coming and after watching too many DIY shows and how many $$ those people spend on batteries...gotta make you wonder who's making the money here and as always what the real cost/ROI is.
The other issue with Li technology is the protective circuitry and heat issues, and really understanding the versatility vs use. In the case of my C3 stuff and that blower/vac they made, blew out the circuits because of too much current draw/long usage heat...which sold more batteries and put more in the waste stream...even though the battery itself is probably still serviceable! You know me I Love the tech stuff and feel we'll get to that simple elegant place...eventually.
Sorry for the spew, G...just thought it should be brought up. As always, loved your review and what it instills and brings up!! You always inspire a book in me though, MBFAM. ~PJ
Great review G! I purchased the fenix BT-20 about 2 years ago. What I like about it is, it uses two 18650's(pretty long run time). I use that size in my ecig's so my batteries serve a dual purpose for me. It's geared toward bicycle use, but I use it for all kinds of situations. Fenix makes great products IMO. Thank you as always for making these great reviews. Going to pull the trigger and get one!
Wow, what a difference! Ok, I'm sold. Send me one (haha). So since the batteries are the same as those you use in you and your wife's flashlight, and are interchangeable, how long to recharge and what's the life of recharging to full, if you know?
Nice light I have a couple of the cheap ones they come in handy when working on electrical panels etc. Good review G.
