Fenix LD20


Stats taken from Fenix:
• Cree XP-G LED (R4) with lifespan of 50,000 hours 
• Two modes (6 types) of output, generation/turbo selected by turning the bezel (patented) 
• General Mode: 9 lumens (71hrs)-> 50 lumens (13hrs)->105 lumens (5hrs)-> SOS
• Turbo Mode: 205 lumens (2hrs)-> Strobe
• Digitally regulated output - maintains constant brightness
• Uses two 1.5V AA ( Alkaline, Ni-MH, Lithium ) batteries, inexpensive and widely available
• 150mm (Length) x 21.5mm (Diameter)
• Made of durable aircraft-grade aluminum
• Premium Type III hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish
• 60-gram weight (excluding batteries)
• Waterproof to IPX-8 Standard
• Toughened ultra-clear glass lens with anti-reflective coating
• Push-button tail cap switch
• Capable of standing up securely on a flat surface to serve as a candle
• Anti-roll, slip-resistant body design
• Included accessories: holster, lanyard, body clip, two spare o-rings, and a rubber switch boot



The Fenix LD20 will be my next light purchase because of its light weight and high output from readily available batteries (205 lumens from 2xAA).  Although I don't own it yet, I've used it extensively in the field and can say that it easily outperforms lights three to four times more expensive (I'm looking at you, Surefire!).  One can usually pick up a Fenix LD20 for $60 or less, and at that price why on Earth WOULDN'T you stick one in your bug out bag, tac load-out, or hunting set-up?  It would also be perfect for LEOs, EMTs, or firefighters.
Everybody needs a good flashlight.  Must be reliable, sustainable in an emergency, and versatile.  The Fenix LD20 is all that and more.  As an aside, can it be weapon mounted?  Absolutely.  But I'll be reviewing my favorite weapon mounted light soon.

  2. Initially, I thought that I was looking at a scope to a rifle. Light, eh? One day lights will shoot lasers...one day.

  3. Well I'll be reviewing some optics in the future so stay tuned, haha. And as for lights that shoot lasers, the Streamlight TLR-2, GTL 22, and Insight M6X might come to mind ;]
