5.0 out of 5 stars Fenix L1D: Kickin' Butt with One AA, October 20, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fenix L1D 6 Level High Performance Cree LED Flashlight (Sports)
The short Fenix L1D Premium Q5 flashlight puts out amazing light for its svelte 2.2 ounce weight (with Lithium batteries) and for using just ONE AA battery. The L1D Q5 makes an outstanding EDC light and incorporates the new technology I spoke to in my "Shedding Some Light" ([...]). Despite using these easy-to-find ubiquitous power cells, this light cranks out some impressive brightness levels and run times: low power at 12 lumens: 25 hrs, med at 53 lumens: 5 hrs, high at 107 lumens: 2 hrs, SOS/Turbo mode at 120 lumens: 1.5 hrs. This performance is made possible with digital regulation/control that maximizes and smoothes power delivery to the extremely bright Cree 7090 XR-E LED. Variances can be expected with different power cell types and temperature but generally speaking L2D can crank out a lot of usable light to about 25 meters (your mileage may vary!). Other upside includes: simple and easy to master switchology, waterproof to IPX-8 standards, quality construction throughout, glass lens with AR coating, numerous included accessories (belt carry case, lanyard, o-rings, and switch cap cover), tactile click switch that's easy to manipulate in cold or loud conditions, flush mounted switch (allows vertical standing of the light for "lantern" use), well-culminated beam with no artifacts from the textured reflector, and some very useful accessories like a diffuser tip, wand extension, headband, and bike light mount (all purchased separately). It's these accessories that enable the Fenix L1D to replace many other lighting products and still provide similar performance. And all of this comes in at a reasonable price for the utility achieved. A reliable and tough lighting tool is a critical part of your kit and the outstanding Fenix L1D is a smart choice that will serve you well for many years. ////////////////////Nutnfancy Likeability Scale: 9 out of 10

Dude your reviews kick butt, I'm sad to see this light isn't available anymore on amazon. Maybe the single AA 4/7? Very happy with my AA squared. Wanted to add smaller light. The sure fire at 200 for a key chain is a bit steep. The new lawman R1 looks pretty handy though, but very different POU.
