Best flashlight ever.

This light is small enough to use on a keychain and is very bright for its size.

Great for attaching to key chains, or carrying in your EDC bag.

I bought this light to replace a Mag lite Solitaire. The Fenix E05 is substantially brighter, and slightly smaller. It is only slightly bigger than the AAA battery it runs off of. It is able to light up small rooms rather impressively. It also has a much whiter light, which I prefer. My one minor gripe is that it is perfectly round, which means it can roll, but since this will be attached to a key chain I don't really care. I have not yet tested the battery life. Before purchasing this light I compared it to the Fenix E01 (about 13 dollars) and the LD01R2 (about 40 dollars) I paid 20 dollars for the E05. All three run on a single AAA batteries, and are increasingly bright 10(E01) 28(E05) 80(LD01R2) lumens respectively. Their battery life also reflects the brightness(the brighter they are the lower battery life they have). I think for 20 dollars this is the ideal balance of brightness and runtime. Even if they were the same price, I am not sure I would go with the LD01R2.

Hope this helps!

I bought one of these to be my EDC flashlight, as a fob on my EDC knife. For that role, the E05 is the best, because it's smaller than anything else. It's pretty much the exact girth of a AA battery, and about 20% longer than one. The weight is neglible.

The other thing that separates the E05 from other mini lights is that it is designed to throw a floodlight style beam. The beam doesn't project as far, but the light is a nice, even circle of white light, without any hot spot in the center. This makes it ideal for the most common task an EDC light will be asked to perform -- watching where you're walking. You don't have to aim the light down at your feet.

I just finished a review on my Fenix E05 R4 and decided to hop over here to review the R2.

I carry the R4 daily, but I've operated both the R4 and R2 versions side by side. Here are the only things I noticed from my quick comparison: The R2 has a warmer (like incandescent) output compared to the R4. The R2 has a beautiful and very uniform output, but the R4 has slightly "more perfect" diffusion.

While I think I'd probably prefer (barely) the R4 over the R2, if more than $5 separated the two I would recommend the less expensive R2. My E05 R4 was a gift, and I didn't face certain financial concerns/constraints. For most people, I think the difference between the R2 and R4 is kind of like splitting hairs.

In summary, the E05 is my "must have" light. I absolutely adore it.

Recently I was in the market for an every day carry (EDC) flashlight. I had seen Fenix mentioned as a popular option due to quality build and low cost. I had specifically heard of the E05 model, but when I got on to Amazon, I also discovered the E01 model.

As usual, I started doing some reading of the reviews and comparing the specs. Both are AAA powered pocket flashlights. Both are from the same manufacturer. Both are within a few dollars of each other in cost. Which was better? I couldn't tell by the reviews, so I decided to get both.

Before I go any further, I'll save you some reading time. Which one is in my pocket right now? It's the E05. But I keep the E01 nearby as well.

What I was originally looking for was something that used off-the-shelf batteries and was as compact as possible to fit in dress pants along with keys and a pocket knife. I didn't want a lot of bulk or weight added. I knew I was looking for a AAA pen light. I also knew it had to be LED for brightness and long life. Both of these fit the bill.

In terms of specs, both looked fairly similar on Amazon, though the specs for the E01 were not very in depth. Here's my best effort at generating a comparison:

E01 E05
Length 3" 2.5"
Diameter 0.5" 0.5"
Lumens 10 27
Bat Life (hr) 21 2.8
Lens No Yes

Both lights operate by twisting the bulb end of the flashlight, screwing it down onto the battery. This is handy in an EDC situation as it can be operated one-handed easily but is unlikely to be accidentally turned on and, thereby, drain the battery in your pocket. (Is that a flashlight in your pocket or are you just delighted to see me?)

The subjective brightness of both lights is noticeably different, though not dramatically so.

The Fenix E05 light is an unbelievable bargain. A keyring EDC light should

a) provide ready available light
b) require only easily available batteries (in case on-the-go replacements are needed)
c) be robust, yet super easy to use

I previously carried the well-reviewed LRI PWK Photon II LED Keychain Micro-Light, White Beam but there are problems with this gadget:

1) It's too easy to have the light go on in your pocket, thereby burning out the battery pre-maturely. (This is a problem with a clickable button that can be pushed if stuffed in a pocket.)

2) The coin batteries it takes aren't easily available

3) You can't stand it on end to point at a ceiling (to illuminate a room)

4) Being shorter than keys, it's harder to find on a key chain

The Fenix E05 flashlight deals with all of these problems readily:

1) The twistable head prevents the light from accidentally turning on in pocket. (And it's easy with minimal practice to turn it on one-handed.)

2) It takes a single AAA battery - easy to find! And battery replacement is far easier than for the Photon II

3) Can stand on its end for emergency candle

4) Easy to find on your keychain in the dark - who is going to use a flashlight in the light??

The E05 has some nice features: a closed plastic protector to the bulb preventing pocket lint from accumulating in the reflector, super-light weight and barely larger than the AAA battery that powers it, knurling for grip (which helps in the rain and cold weather), metal (not plastic) body.
