However, Fenix has created confusion since upgrades to LD01, with marked changes in features, carry the same product name, LD01; the products are etched with the same name, as is the box. Only the data sheet is updated with new specifications. Multiple older versions in the Amazon catalog, with the largest user reviews, are obsolete. When you order through those older items, you get this instead, the LD01 R4, which is the current version, and some users complain they did not get what they ordered.
The older versions have a high setting of 80 to 85 lumens, and use the Cree (Q5) 7090 Fenix mini LD01 CREE Q5 80 lumens LED Flashlight - black color, using one AAA battery or Cree XP-E LED(R2) Fenix LD01R2, 3 Level High Performance CREE LED Flashlight. There are other versions out there too. They typically list a maximum burn time of ~ 11 hours on low setting, and some users critiqued the light pulsed on low output due to the pulse width modulation circuitry used to reduce the brightness, common in the older model.
The lights all function the same, but the newest version have updated electronics. It uses current control, so there is no pulsing. The low setting is now down to 3 lumens, and has a burn time of 27+ hours. The high output is now 72 lumens, and the Med setting is now 26 lumens; other than that all the great features of the light are the same.Read more ›
The new pocket clip has flared ends which makes it easier to attach but adds an un-necessary protrusion to this sleek flashlight.
For a one tripple-A battery flashlight, this shreds everything else we'ved owned to pieces.
The size is great because it could be used for every day carry, or put in any of a myriad of bags. We particularly use it for our Level 2 First Aid Kit and use another one around the house and at times even implement it into our EDC system.
Toggling between the three light settings at first was a little tough, but it became easier with time.
A quality flashlight is a quality flashlight is a quality flashlight. If you don't have a quality flashlight, what are you waiting for?! Am being serious too. For emergencies, or any of a myriad of reasons this is great. In fact, after using it just once, going back to regular low powered flashlights and the limited & broad range almost seem like going from the stone age to the tech age and going all the way back. Just our situation though. Not that small cheap flashlights don't have their place, because they do; however, if you really need light and a focused beam in order to see what you NEED and need it QUICK - this is a great start out light.
Another great plus is the fact that using it on its back-end as a candle illuminates the room when hitting the celing in a way that's better than adequate but not too much light that it would wake people up.Read more ›

This is my constant companion. I am night blind and this fits in my pocket on my key ring. I like the fact that it is non-adjustable. Read morePublished 14 months ago by dbreifly
Very bright but Flickering while operating. The flicker causes cycling through the light intensity modes. I would recommend this for the brightness.Published on January 12, 2014 by J. James
I had one of these and was completely happy with it. Unfortunately, I lost it, so I had to buy a replacement.
The new one is every bit as good. Read more
I like this light but I like it's bigger brother the LD 15 better. This AAA battery light is not that much smaller than the AA light and the amount of illumination is 70 lumens... Read morePublished on October 5, 2013 by Charlie
Small enough to leave on my keychain but puts out plenty of light. Seems well made and the screw type switch should be reliable. Read morePublished on August 20, 2013 by R. DAILY
