Fenix TK35 High Performance Flashlight

Updated on December 6, 2014

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.
