Re: FENIX TK11 R2 NEW UPGRADED EDITITION!

Oh thanks for pointing out this new model Hendrik.

I very much doubt that there would be a noticeable difference in brightness as going from Q5 - R2 is not much of an upgrade.

I would be more interested if Fenix improved the regulation on 18650s as this is the main weak point of an otherwise excellent light.

I highly doubt the difference-- if any -- will be noticeable to the naked eyes.

I'd rather have a fully-regulated TK11 with the standard Q5 LED than a non-regulated R2 version.

Nice!

I do love my TK11 and would love to see if this update can out-shoot the Eagle Tac... perhaps just overpower it now?

Re: FENIX TK11 R2 NEW UPGRADED EDITITION!

- Make a light that works on one AA battery! and have 2 hours of light and 250 lumens!

- Make a beam that you can change, like the maglite!

- Make it like the size of the Fenix TK11!

- Make the glass unbrakeable'

- Make things that when you stock in the ice you can put the light with the head in the ice and that you can pull yourself out of the ice

- Make on one side a firestone that you can make fire in emergency situations ( survival )

- At the end of the light, make something that can brake glass easily! Now the light will be populair by cops! And first-responders

I think when Fenix this few things do in one light that they would have a very good nice light!

Re: FENIX TK11 R2 NEW UPGRADED EDITITION!

From Q5 to R2 isn't going to be much of a difference. I think I'll wait for next year for new upgrades. In January, the 150 lumen/watt Golden Dragon is supposed to be available. Cree will hopefully release those 161 lumen/watt l.e.d.s in the near future. Lumileds still hasn't released that 115 lumen/watt K2 they have been promising for 2 years. I think these upgrades will be worth the wait and I have plenty of Q5 and R2 Cree lights. We are due for another jump in efficiency, so I don't want to buy something that will be outdated next month.

:ohgeez::crackup::crackup::crackup: laws of physics was better!!

I preferred it too, but its technically untrue, hence the edit ;)

Re: FENIX TK11 R2 NEW UPGRADED EDITITION!

Well, this makes me glad I got a TK20 a few weeks ago instead of the TK11!

It would stink to buy a light that has an upgraded version released a month later.

(Now that I've said that, watch 'em come out with a TK20 and a neutral white R2 or something!! )

Re: FENIX TK11 R2 NEW UPGRADED EDITITION!

Switching the emitter to a R2 was just plain stupid on Fenix's part.
We all know they're just competing with the Olight M20 R2.
What they should of done was make the TK11 Q5 (a 18650 cell only,no CR123's light) REGULATED.
Then they would of made some noise.

And they can keep producing the unregulated version too because it takes 18650's,CR123's,RCR123's as far as i'm concerned there's a market for that kind of versatility.

Thanks for the info.

Probably want to fix your title; Edition only has 1 t in it.

Re: FENIX TK11 R2 NEW UPGRADED EDITITION!

I would be more interested if Fenix improved the regulation on 18650s as this is the main weak point of an otherwise excellent light.

Exactly. We gain nothing from newer leds if regulation is not 100% flat or close to it.

We can have flat regulated output from 1.5v, 3v, 6v, 8.4v, 9v... and so on but why we can´t have flat regulated output with one 3.7v li-ion and voltage range of flashlight still supports 2xCR123 ?

I have wonder this for two years now ever since i bought Pila GL2 with luxeon led and i was disappointed about lack of flat-regulation and lesser output from single li-ion compared to other options.

Led emitters has come and gone, but this "mystery of single li-ion" still continues...
