I have a couple of pictures uploaded as well (note that the tint looks a bit whiter in the pictures). For the picture with 3 lights, the E01 is on the right side, followed by an Enercell 3AAA in the middle, and then an incandescent Mini Maglite on the left.
Here are the pros:
- good runtime
- light has good machining and aluminum body
- lightweight & compact
- gives wide dispersal of light, but has enough projection/throw for walking/navigating
Here are the cons:
- light tint somewhat purple/blue-ish and dim
- brightness does dim somewhat after about 10 hours in during use
I have used the light as a general keychain light to find the doorknob or to read a sign at night, but I have also found it helpful as a spare light during a hike. Although the tint isn't a deal breaker, I personally feel that having a warmer tint would improve the light a lot. The bluish or purple-ish tint looks especially dim once battery power drops below 50%, and human eyes see better with a more neutral/warm light tint.
- small and light. At about 3 inches long and weighing just 3 ounces, this was perfect for me
- rugged. The aluminum body and cree LED should last longer than I do
- long runtime. Its rated at 20 hours per fresh battery. I ran it for 10 hours straight with no issues
- uses easy to find batteries. Takes any AAA battery. I purchased an 8 pack of lithium AAA bateries for my kit.
- low cost. At $12 I don't mind throwing it in my 72 hour kit (battery out) and never seeing it again.
This is such a nice little light, I just ordered a couple more so my wife and I can carry one on our key chains.
Had a chance to use this little gem last night. We lost power in an early morning storm and it took 28 hours to get it restored. When night fell, I grabbed the one in my 72 hour kit and the one off my key chain and set them on their base at opposite ends of the room. They ran for 5 hours without a flicker and gave us all the light we needed to navigate around the first floor without tripping or stubbing a toe. I even had enough light to read a phone book to find the ComED number so I could get an ETA on the repairs. Now that we have power back, I'll pull the battery from one and toss it back in my bag while the other goes back on my key chain.
The Fenix E01 flashlight fits my needs exactly: Pocket sized, solid construction, foolproof and simple operation, well-sealed against water, single AAA battery, and good brightness to see by whether hunting for stuff or walking in the dark.
I choose the "natural Grey" to stand up best against the ravages of scratching by other stuff in the pocket, purse, or key ring. I use AAA Lithium batteries so that there's never a chance for leaking and to have the longest run time possible.
(If you prefer a flashlight with a single AA cell, consider the Gerber Infinity Ultra, an AA cell counterpart to the Fenix E01.)
In short there are many better lights (even the Fenix e05 and LD01 along with many other makes) but for the fairly cheap cost, the reliability and durability, and for keychain use, it is hard to beat the Fenix e01. Easily beats rubbish like the Streamlight Nano which is also a popular keychain light.
What I don't like:
The circuit in the head is exposed and makes contact with the body to turn on/off. Constant use really starts to wear out the PCB circuit so the light will eventually fail.
Fenix lists 21 hours runtime, but they don't state what type of battery they used neither do they provide any runtime graph.
