What does "IP Rating" on lights mean?Updated 2 years ago

What Does All This Mean on Fenix Lights?
IP66, IP67, etc.

When selecting a flashlight, headlamp, lantern, or bike light, it is important to purchase one that perform in your planned environment and conditions. This week, our goal is to discuss IP ratings. 

An IP (Ingress Protection) is a rating that states how protected the gear is against water or dust getting into the casing of the gear or how resistant it is to impacts. Generally speaking, the higher the number, the better protection.

So check out the IP rating on each Fenix product you are interested in. An appropriate rating used in the corresponding environment will extend the life of your light.
