The E05 is, in my opinion, the best keychain based flashlight you can buy. There are a few things about it that I believe make it such a great buy.
-Light. It puts out an absolutely appropriate amount of light for what you will need to do on a day to day basis. Between the 1st generation doing 27 lumens constant and the 2nd generation doing a 5/25/85 you have as much light as you will need for small tasks that this flashlight will typically be involved in.
-Durability - These are waterproof and I have never had a concern that I was going too hard on it. They feel solid in the hand and are well built.
-Compact - The E05 is one of the smallest flashlights that meets the next criteria that you can buy. It's compact and doesn't make your keys too bulky. I hate bulky keychains so I only carry the bare minimum. Believe me, I wouldn't carry this thing if it wasn't small enough. Which brings me into the next point...
-Powered by a AAA battery. None of this button cell stuff that cost like 5 dollars to repower your flashlight. You can get AAAs anywhere for cheap and that's what I really was looking for. You can also use a rechargeable if you so desire, which I may switch over to. I typically run Duracells, though.
-Single CREE LED. It seems that the cheaper flashlights tend to have more LEDs because it is cheaper to manufacture several cheap, dimmer LEDs than to manufacture a single bright good LED. With this comes more solders and less durability. I will typically stay away from any flashlight that has any more than one LED on it.
-Battery life. Both the first and the second generation is not lacking for battery life. I replace my battery so little that I don't even remember the last time I did. It does eventually run low but honestly I replace mine so infrequently I hardly even know it has a battery in it.
-Paint durability. The paint is pretty solid on here, even getting banged around on a set of keys (I beat the crap out of mine) you see only minor wear and the paint doesn't instantly come off.
Now for the advantages of the 2nd generation and why I prefer it over the 1st generation E05.
-Variable luminosity. The head twists for on and off, starting at 5, then if you do it in 1 sec off/on again you get 25, then again 85 lumens. Most tasks I have 5 lumens is plenty but it is nice to be able to over-do it with 85 for some super dark stuff. One note is that it doesn't like to be on 85 lumens for extended periods. It WILL drop back to 25 lumens after a minute or two, which you can instantly re-up it to 85 but it will not stay on 85 lumens. This is intentional as it does begin to get a slight bit warm when running on a high setting so something to be aware of.
-Lens is not some weird diffuser thing. I liked the original E05's lens, it was impossible to scratch because it gave out an area of light but I feel like the lens on this model is less restrictive and allows more light out of it.
That's about all I have, there's no real reason not to get this over the 1st gen, unless you absolutely must have simplicity then you can't beat the 1st generation.
If you can't afford this model then the enforced battery conservation of it's little brother the Fenix E01 is an excellent alternative. The E01 is certainly more than enough light to see your general vicinity, read things, keep you from tripping over things. The E05 has a "throw" of 23 feet. The E01 is more like 10 feet.
If you want something affordable above the E05 with more battery life at the middle setting output (24 lumens), I can recommend this unit: https://www.amazon.com/Streamlight-66129-Stylus-Light-Lime/dp/B00407NSA8/ref=cm_cr-mr-title It's twice as big though with 2 X AA batteries. The Streamlight provides up to 24 lumens for up to 7.5 hours. (I own that model also)
FENIX E01, E05 flashlights have a 5 Year Manufacturer WARRANTY.
In closing: For size, options, affordability and potential - it's pretty hard to beat this flashlight.
I've now replaced it with a Fenix E05, which appears to be equally capable and robust. I hope to get another 10-20 years from this new model.
One suggestion: I find myself holding this small light in my mouth while working with both hands, and the metal body of these pocket lights is very hard on the teeth... I'd love to see a comparably small pocket light with a durable plastic/nylon/delrin body, or a plastic cover, making it easier to hold it in your mouth while working.
Excellent design otherwise, and exceptional reliability. I routinely recommend Fenix to all my fellow night workers.
Because of my affinity for losing things when I take them out of my pockets, I constantly search for items that I don't notice in my pocket, and this wins big! It fits nicely in the coin pocket of my pants and is brighter than I could have imagined, as bright as any full size flashlight I have ever had. The only downside is that the battery can run out after several days of heavy use, but it pairs well with rechargeable AAA batteeies (all attached photos were taken with the e05 being the only source of light in the room

Initially I was actually reticent about the small size. I think the 'survival tools' market more broadly is a ridiculously macho world in which we all buy things that we'll never really need in a bid to make our lives seem more edgy. I wonder how many military spec knives are used largely for opening letters, or how many titanium-bodied torches chiefly help inspect the plumbing every now and again. I think this torch would be considered at most a tertiary back-up on websites packed with the sort of people who do airsoft in a full ghillie suit. I must admit that when this arrived I looked at it and felt a sense of inadequacy. Very phallic I know. Anyway, it really has won me over and for the vast majority of appliances it is about as good as you need.
I use it around the house (I live in Delhi where power cuts are relatively frequent) and plan to use it on holidays and some work travel where something to use for walking at night in rural/remote areas is necessary. If you require something for really sustained outdoor use that must provide a more focused, long-distance beam, then it's very unlikely you'll ever consider this product in the first place. If not, then this is a fantastically portable solution that will take care of your everyday needs.
If you turn it on it has a brightness of 8 lumens; by "turning-it-off-then-back-on-again-in-less-than-a-second" it changes to 25 lumens, then to 85 lumens after a third cycle. Turning it off for two or more seconds resets the cycle.
The 8 lumens setting is suitable for close-up work, like finding a keyhole or for reading a map in a vehicle, range of 3-4 meters, and lasting about 10-12 hours. The 25 lumens setting is good for walking along a dark road, range of about 20 meters and should last for 4-5 hours. The 85 lumens setting is very bright and will light up a whole carpark, however it drains the AAA battery in about 40-45 minutes. Different battery brands have different "mAh" capacity, so the higher capacity batteries will obviously last longer.
Amazon and 7dayshop sell "battery boxes" that hold 4 or 5 AAA batteries, so it's easy to keep spare batteries in your pocket. Rechargable AAA batteries are a good investment as well - just make sure you invest in a decent charger like the Ansmann 8+ or 16+, or one of the high-end Duracell chargers. These chargers do not stress the batteries and allow them to go through more recharge cycles before they get delpeted.
I looked at similar torches running on expensive relatively non standard voltage batteries, and rejected them as being more liable to leave me stranded without a battery, as well as a fiscal nono.
Then I found this one. It's 1cm shorter than a solitaire, very bright for it's size, I've had it over a month, and it's still going well on the original battery. I have stock of Eneloop rechargables for my photo gear, so, when the present cell gives up, I'll use them.
Edit, 9 months later, finally lost the top 2 power levels (to battery saving mode?), put new battery in, all ok again!
1) It is small - maybe not officially tiny but smaller than my car key remote by a long way. (Think a large USB stick size)
2) Smaller lights run on tiny hearing aid or torch batteries - hard to get in a small shop. This runs on a more common AAA battery
3) You turn it on by twisting the head of the torch and it comes on with a nice beam that is fine to find the path or keyhole at night
However if you immediately turn it off and on again once or twice the beam steps up to the two higher levels. The highest kills the
battery fairly fast but it is absolutely dazzling and above anything you would expect from this size of torch.
Perfect for those 'lost earring on the gravel at night' moments !
If you want a torch small enough to forget on a keyring, in a handbag or pocket - yet powerful enough to save your skin when you need it this is great - I've bought 4 more for friends and family!
