The Fenix TK16 is the successor of the incredibly popular Fenix TK15. This tactical flashlight was specifically designed for bobbies and security guards. The focussed 1000 lumens beam can be turned on by means of the tactical switch on the back. In addition to this normal tactical switch the light has been enhanced with a second switch that enables you to immediately switch to the stroboscope mode. Even when the light has been turned off this button will immediately enable you to reach the stroboscope mode. Incredibly useful when every second counts!
When the light is turned on you can use this separate switch to switch between the four light modes. However, you can also reach the stroboscope mode when the light has been turned on by pressing down this second switch for a couple of seconds. Because of the small raised ledge around the tactical switch you won’t be able to press down both buttons. In addition, this ledge protects the buttons when the light accidentally tumbles towards the ground.
The tactical ring around the body serves multiple purposes. It, for instance, makes sure the flashlight won’t roll away when you put it down. It increases the grip and offers you the possibility to hold the light while your thumb is resting on the tactical switches. The head of the light is enhanced with a so-called “crown”.
The beam of the Fenix TK16 is very focussed. As such you can accurately put a spotlight on people or objects without lighting up the surroundings. Because of the focussed beam the Fenix TK16 has a beam distance of 240 meters according to the ANSI norm. Very impressive!
