Fenix TK35 High Performance Flashlight

Updated on February 7, 2018

We like to go camping a couple of times in the summer so since the weather started getting nicer I thought it was a good time to start making sure everything was in good order and that I know what needs to be replaced or repaired.

Every camper needs a reliable flashlight which can produce a powerful beam of light especially when camping far from the city lights. Unfortunately, my flashlight had seen better days so I decided it was time to replace it.

I thought this might be a good time to upgrade to a better quality flashlight as well since I wanted one that is waterproof and durable. In doing a little research I found that the Fenix TK35 Flashlight has a lot to recommend it.

Why I Like this Flashlight:

The Fenix flashlight produces a powerful beam of light which can light up more than 577 feet ahead of you. Since it weighs just over a pound it will be easy to carry and won’t take up too much room when packing the car.

Also, I needed one that was durable and this flashlight is made of aircraft-grade aluminum with a hard-iodized and anti-abrasive finish.

Now I know you don’t have to be a rock scientist to use a flashlight, but I wanted one that wasn’t complicated to operate and with this one, all you have to do is a single push on the dual-button switch to have it cycle through different lighting modes.

As well it has a built-in memory circuit so when you turn it on it will start at the brightness level you had the last time you used the flashlight. I thought that was pretty amazing!

Is it worth the money?

Considering that it uses rechargeable batteries as well as regular batteries, I thought this made it more sustainable.

There is a voltage warning function, a memory circuit which memorizes the flashlight’s brightness level automatically when it’s switched off and it is shock and wear-resistant. So yes considering all this, I think the flashlight is worth the money I spent.

What Else?

It is reliable and durable, water-proof and provides a very bright light. The only downside I saw was that the operating buttons are located on one end of the flashlight which means you will need two hands to operate it.

It's a Good Idea to Keep a Flashlight in the Car for Unexpected Situations

You never know when your car may break down on the side of the road. Even if you have recently purchased a brand new car, you can still run the risk of certain systems in your car going out which would cause you to have to park on the side of the road.

While not a major problem during the day, being alone in the middle of the night can be a worrisome situation. For this reason, you should always carry an emergency flashlight with you somewhere in your car.

The two most popular places for an emergency flashlight are in the glove compartment or underneath one of the front seats. You want to place the emergency flashlight somewhere where you can easily find it, even if there is no light.

How to Find the Pefect Flashlight

When searching for that perfect flashlight to have in your home or your car, there are several criteria that you may want to consider.

  1. The first is the size of the flashlight. You will want to invest in an emergency flashlight which is large enough so you can find it easily and small enough that you can place it in your glove compartment or a desk drawer.
  2. You will want a light that will provide you with a long-term use, so if you have to, you can use it throughout the entire night without the possibility of it going dead on you when you least expect it.
  3. Emergency flashlights should also be light enough that your arm will not get tired from holding it for prolonged periods of time.

What to Consider When Getting a Flashlight

As far as flashlights go, there are several options from several high-quality flashlight manufacturers.

Firstly, there is a great variety of different emergency flashlight choices for the average consumers. The smaller models can even be positioned upright on a table or flat surface for that candlelight effect if you get tired of holding the flashlight.

Alternatively, you can spend some extra money and purchase a military use flashlight which can give you all of the bells and whistles along with a much longer lasting battery life.
