The working qualities and practicality of the flashlight Fenix UC01.
Flashlight Fenix UC01 assembled very carefully. The plastic case is very strong to the touch, without backlashes and creaks. Not collapsible. The LED located at its end is protected from impacts and falls by the side projections of the housing. The length of the lamp is enough for a comfortable hold and control. The metal button and the charge indicator are conveniently located, the button fits well under the finger.
The degree of illumination of the flashlight is much greater than the declared 102 degrees. During operation, one useful feature of the charge indicator was found out as soon as it blinks, there is about 15 minutes of operation of the flashlight in minimum mode. Then the flashlight Fenix UC01 turns off. The photo below shows the comparative ability of lighting with a Fenix UC01 lamp hanging at a height of 1.5 meters. Left to right: 1, 20, 45 lumens.
General impressions of the flashlight Fenix UC01.
In general, I liked it very much. Excellent small-sized source of lighting. It will be useful both in urban conditions and in nature. An average lighting level of 20 lumens is enough to cover most needs. It is convenient that the flashlight can remember it and the next time it turns on precisely from it. A mode of 45 lumens during operation was very rarely demanded. The minimum mode of 1 lumen was mainly more in demand in the city than in nature.
You can charge the Fenix UC01 flashlight from the cigarette lighter in the presence of a USB adapter, from the solar panel or from any powerbank. A not-so-critical drawback of the flashlight is a button protruding beyond the body. Because of this, once he spontaneously turned on in his bag. When laying the flashlight in soft pouches or bags, remember this.
