5.0 out of 5 stars Well Beyond Exceeding Expectations, February 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fenix PD32 Compact 315 Lumen LED Flashlight (Sports)
I wasn't sure what to expect when receiving this flashlight. I've had a few very basic LED flashlights, and was never overly impressed. I'm glad I decided to pull the trigger on this purchase, because this flashlight makes the others seem like toys. I was a little concerned with the light weight (it's much lighter than I expected), and even with the batteries it's easy to hold for long periods of time. The light output is almost unbelievable. If I didn't see it, I wouldn't believe it was possible for something so little to be so bright. Even on the lowest setting it provides more than enough light in most situations. The 'secret' SOS setting is cool (although I hope I never need it), and the turbo strobe mode will disorient anyone who gets too close.

The only difference that I find between the description and the actual model is the way you cycle through the different modes. According to the description (and the included instructions), you are supposed to depress the thumb switch multiple times to access the different modes. This particular flashlight has a memory of the most recent setting and when using the thumb switch, it automatically turns back on in this mode. The setting is changed by the switch on the side of the device; low, medium, high, turbo. If you hold the switch for one second it automatically goes into turbo strobe mode. If you hold if for three seconds, it switches to SOS mode.

I personally like this method better, as the side switch is easier to press when holding the flashlight.

I really can't say enough about this little flashlight; if you're looking for a light-weight, blindingly-bright flashlight that exceeds all expectations, this is the one to buy.

The only downside would be the batteries. They are not included, they are a little hard to find, and they are expensive. Looks like I'll be getting the rechargeable 18650 battery soon.UltraFire 18650 3000mAh 3.7V Rechargeable Li-Ion Battery (Pair) + Charger Combo
