WTS: Fenix TK61 with dedomed XM-L2 U4

1231 meters FL1 throw

This TK61 is barely used. I swapped in a dedomed emitter, but left the current alone to preserve the TK61’s distinguishing trait: it can maintain its output for over four hours. There are no stepdowns. It does not get hot. Output does not track battery voltage. It does have a low-voltage stepdown and warning blink. It may not out-throw the Acebeam K70 when you first turn it on, but wait ten minutes and the K70 has stepped down and is continuing to lose output while the TK61 just keeps doing its thing.

The dedomed emitter doesn’t just increase intensity; it corrects my two main complaints about the TK61: cool tint that scatters badly in the atmosphere, and purple spill. This one comes in at about 5000K, and the tint in the spill isn’t too far off. Like most dedomed emitters, there’s a hint of green, but it’s not as much as it looks like in the beamshot.

This light is ideal for dedicated search and rescue, boating or keeping in/on another vehicle. It’s a bit large to carry around on foot if you don’t know you’re going to need it, but the weight isn’t bad given the size, and it does come with the original shoulder strap, as well as the original box, spare o-rings and (for reasons I don’t understand) a length of paracord.

Price is $145 $135 Paypal net and includes shipping by USPS within the US.
