Perfect Carry Flashlight,
I was looking for a small yet powerful flashlight to carry with every day while deployed overseas. I've been a huge surefire fans for years but was getting fed up of trying to find CR-123 batteries, especially on some of the smaller based and did not want to spend over $100 for a small, LED flashlight. After doing some research and reading reviews, I decided to go with the Fenix LD01. All I can say is wow! The light is nearly as small as my key, not much longer than the AAA battery used to power it. I can easily put the flashlight on my key ring in my pocket and literally not know it is there. Having the flashlight always on your person is the first test of a truly portable flashlight...and this one passes with flying colors!
The light is well constructed. No scratching or dings on it after a few weeks of carry. The operation is simple. A twist on and twist off will take you through three settings: low, medium and high. The low setting will save your batter life but provides more than enough illumination to see while walking in the dark. The medium setting has a good throw and provides you a greater viewing distance at night. The high power is just as strong as some of the much more expensive, two cell Surefire lights I own...simply amazing! The ability to use a standard AAA battery just adds to the overall effectiveness of the little powerhouse.
I highly recommend keeping an LD01 on your key chain. It is THE perfect powerful yet portable LED flashlight.
