Fenix HM65R bright headlamp

Another headlamp from Fenix is the 1000 lumens bright HM65R version, featuring two different light modes, spotlight and floodlight. The 1000 lumens spotlight mode gives a focused light with a long throw distance, while the 400 lumens floodlight is for lighting up the entire area around you. Both the spot and floodlight modes can be active at the same time for maximum brightness, this will however drain the battery faster. The HM65R is powered by a rechargeable 18650 battery, which is favorable when it comes to headlamps. If you are going for a long hike or camping trip, you can just bring as many spare batteries as you need. A popular choice with a rating of 4.6 out of 5 from over 130 buyers makes this lamp a safe bet.

Take a look at this video if you want to see the Fenix 1000 lumens headlamp in action. Here you can also see how to toggle between the different modes and brightness settings. The HM65R is designed for having a long runtime and prevent it from overheating. The light will decrease automatically on the highest settings once it starts to get hot, reducing the brightness level. This can be a pro or a con, depending on your needs


Product summary with latest price and store page link

The HM65R headlamp from Fenix is a great choice if you are looking for a small lightweight lamp for hiking, walking the dog, or doing some work in the dark. The ability to replace the battery with a spare one is a plus as you can bring as many charged batteries as you need, depending on the length of your adventure. The drawback for me personally is the overheating mechanism that lowers the brightness output after a while on the highest settings, but that’s something most headlamps and flashlights have to avoid them catching fire..
