5.31'' x 2.09'' x 0.94''
4.52 oz / 128 g (including battery)
Included a 1300mAh low self-discharge rechargeable Ni-MH battery
Q1. What is the product positioning of E-STAR? And who are the target customers?
A:The Fenix E-star is a portable mechanically-powered(hand-pressing type) flashlight for emergencies, including areas lacking stable power supply and disaster-hit areas; as PSK/BOB gear, also it can be used as a backup flashlight for extended outdoor activities. Fenix E-STAR has four different brightness levels. The med and low modes can work without a break by manually pressing the handle. The high and turbo modes aim to provide a better lighting experience when used with a battery. The flashlight allows use while charging, a single-handed pressing for power generation, which is easy even for long-time operation. Another power supply comes from the included low self-discharge Ni-MH battery, a common AA battery can be used as well. And the flashlight supports USB Type-c charging, with the built-in super capacitor, it helps with energy storage and buffering when the battery is damaged or missing.
Q2. What are the key features and benefits of E-STAR?
A: 1) Hand-pressing charging
2)A low self-discharged Ni-MH battery(A nickel metal hydride battery) with high capacity
4) USB Type-C charging.
Q3. What kind of LED is used in E-STAR? And what are the beam angles of E-STAR?
A: Uses high-quality white light LED conforming to IES LM-80 standards
Beam angles: spot beam angle of 22°, spill beam angle of 78°.
Q4. Does E-STAR have overheat protection?
A: Yes. The light will accumulate a lot of heat when used at Turbo mode for extended periods. When the light works at Turbo for more than 1 minute, the light will automatically step down a few lumens to reduce the temperature. The Turbo mode can be re-entered if it is still needed, but the flashlight may be damaged.
Q5. What battery does E-STAR support?
A: The light comes with an included 1300mAh low self-discharge rechargeable Ni-MH battery, compatible with other AA batteries.
Q6. What’s the mechanically powered flashlight?
A: It is a flashlight that is powered by electricity generated by the muscle power of the user, so it does not need replacement of batteries, or recharging from an electrical source. There are several types which use different operating mechanisms. They use different motions to generate the required power; such as squeezing a handle, winding a crank, or shaking the flashlight itself.
Q7. Without battery, how does E-STAR generate electricity by hand-pressing?
A: Without battery, continuously press the handle for 15-20 seconds and you can get a fully-charged super capacitor, thus the E-STAR can be on about 2 minutes at low mode or 50 seconds at med mode. Without battery, the E-STAR would be on because of built-in super capacitor.
Q8. What are advantages of Ni-MH battery?
A: Ni-MH battery is a kind of rechargeable AA battery. Featuring low self-discharge, there is still 80% power stored in Ni-MH battery after leaving unused for 1 year. Without using for several years, the remained power can also promise the light to work well.
Q9. About the “∞” from technical parameters.
A: It means that the E-STAR would be on in low or med mode without battery if hand-pressing charging continues.
