The LD10 flashlight features a knurled surface to encourage a better grip.
The flashlight is also well built, with a durable aircraft-grade aluminum body coated with a premium Type III hard-anodized, anti-abrasive finish. The construction--which also includes a toughened ultra-clear glass lens with an anti-reflective coating--helps the light hold up to all kinds of abuse. Other features include a pushbutton tail-cap switch; an anti-roll, slip-resistant body design; and such accessories as a holster, lanyard, body clip, rubber switch boot, and two spare O-rings. The LD10, which also stands on a flat surface to serve as a candle, carries a limited lifetime warranty.

It's size is perfect for when you don't want to carry a full-size pocket light. It's about half the size of a SureFire tactical light or a MagLite.
It also gets points for functioning on a AA battery. With frequent daily use, this lasted a month on one lithium battery. Pretty good.
As an LED it remains cool and the bulb won't pop if you happen to drop the light while using it.
The best part, perhaps, are its 5 options for light. With the bezel moderately tightened, you get 3 levels of brightness at the push of a button, and a slow blinking S-O-S beacon for emergencies. Tighten the bezel all the way and you get the brightest setting and a strobe option. For dazzling opponents, or staging your own rave, I suppose.
In some instances it is inconvenient to have to push the button three times to get to the brightest level. It would be nice for it to "save" the last level used as some other similar models do.
The biggest concern is that it doesn't always light on the first push of the button. It seems the programming for the controls is faulty. There are times when you have to cycle through, clicking the switch 4 or 5 times before it comes on. For a light in the 50-70 dollar range this really shouldn't be acceptable.
I can't use this light where my life might rely on it instantly lighting (e.g. for personal defense situations), but as a tool for ultralight hiking on the trails, daily utilitarian purposes and such it's about the best in class.
I'd buy it again. But only for half the price I paid.

This thing is still my goto flashlight for pretty much anything i need a light for. Tough as nails and very bright. Clip is still perfect on it. I can't recommend this enough.
Performance of the LD10 R5 according to their website is:
- Turbo, 100 lumens, 1 hour, 48 minutes
- Strobe, 100 lumens
- Low, 3 lumens, 70 hours
- Mid, 13 lumens, 11 hours
- High, 45 lumens, 4 hours, 40 minutes
- SOS, 45 lumens
The basic differences are slightly reduced output, longer run times, perhaps a little less efficient. I like the output range.
I was really happy with my first Fenix flashlight, an E21. But, it was a little too big and heavy for camping/hiking and there wasn't much difference between its two settings. So, the E21 got designated for home use. I wanted to give one of their smaller flashlights a try and decided on the LD10.
Overall, I'm very pleased with the LD10. It's light, sturdy and has a more diverse range of settings. The wide range of outputs allows for better battery management. On turbo, the single AA battery does get a work out and heats up pretty quickly.
I prefer the E21's neutral light color. The LD10 seems to have a slight green/blue tint (Not everybody is going to notice or object to this). The LD10 however, does include an anti-roll design, lanyard, holster and pocket clip. Shipped in an easy to open and reusable box, not the more difficult to open clam shell packaging.
My only concern is long term reliability. The tailcap is rather finicky. There is very little tolerance, it has to be tightened down all the way to work correctly. Unscrewing it even a degree or two and it cuts off or switches settings.
Very happy with my first two Fenix flashlights and plan on getting a few more.
