The F2S uses a CREE XP-G2 emitter with a smooth reflector. The head of it has a squared section for anti-rolling. On the side of the head, there’s a LED indicator that works as battery gauge. When you turn the light on, the LED on the side of the head will blink blue if remaining capacity is above 30%, blink red if the capacity is between and 10 and 30%, and will keep blinking if it is lower than 10%. The F2S has a U-shaped tailcap 2 lanyard holes. The switch of this light is a tail clicky switch which is designed with a protruding rubber cover. Thus it doesn’t allow tail stand. By unscrewing the tailcap, you can see the threads at the tail cap which are well lubed and anodized.
