Great backup light

By KL

from UT

Comments about Fenix Flashlight E15 LED Flashlight:

Excellent light. Works great and output is as advertised. Perfect light to put in a kit or carry on a pocket where space and weight is at a premium. I keep one in my backpack for backpacking, in glove boxes, in my 72 hour kit and one in my pocket.

Bright little light

By Pocho

from NY

Comments about Fenix Flashlight E15 LED Flashlight:

Great keychain light, not a huge fan of the twist to turn on, but due to size, output and being waterproof it is a case of more pros than cons. Strobe would be a nice addition.

    Comments about Fenix Flashlight E15 LED Flashlight:

    If you need pocket light with more power than a AA this one is great! The light is not much larger than the CR123 battery. It has selectable output so battery life can be conserved. It would be nice if it came with replacement lenses as they can become scratched and worn when kept in the same pocket with change.

    Comments about Fenix Flashlight E15 LED Flashlight:

    I use this flashlight at work inspecting construction.
    It is extremely bright for such a small flashlight. The small size makes it very easy to carry in your pocket.
    I don't like the fact that it does not have a switch, you turn it on by screwing in the end of the light, when in the off possition there is a gap between the end cap and the body, exposing the bronze interior of the light. See the photo I added. It looks like it's comming apart. It looses a star for that. Also to switch brightness you have to screw the cap in and out multiple times. The battery life in the brightest setting is sort of short, less than 2 hrs.
    Although it has some minor drawbacks, it's a great little light and I would recommend it.

    Comments about Fenix Flashlight E15 LED Flashlight:

    I own many Fenix flashlights and all have been superior in operation and performance. They are the best flashlights made. This flashlight is also outstanding with a small footprint and very bright light. But I must admit that there is one inherent problem with this light (I own two and both have the same problem). The light has three power levels: medium-low-maximum in that order and the intensity is changed by momentarily turning off the light and turning it back on. First, this is not a good way to change intensity and second, it does not always change the intensity to low and is even harder to cycle to the high intensity. I debated whether to give this light only three stars, but it has so much value that I stuck with the four stars.

    Fenix brand is good, but do not get this model because it uses the cr123 battery which costs $8 each and has a run time of ONLY 2 hours!

      Comments about Fenix Flashlight E15 LED Flashlight:

      Love this small powerfull flashlight. I didn't even realize until opening the box that it has three power levels, not just one. Changing from low, to medium, to high requires quick on/off twists of the cap (no on/off button). This isn't quite as easy as rapid pushing of a button, but that's a small inconvenience given its size.

      Unbelievable Amount of Light!

      By Medic Man

      from Barnegat, NJ

      About Me Casual/ Recreational

      Pros

      • Amazing power for size

      Cons

      • CR123 battery not common

      Best Uses

      • Every Day Carry
      • Travel

      Comments about Fenix Flashlight E15 LED Flashlight:

      I purchased this light as an Every Day Carry (EDC) item just so I could have a flashlight in my pocket at all times. I am utterly amazed at the amount of light (140 lumens) this tiny flashlight produces. It has three different light settings and on high it can light up my house from across the street. If you are looking for a powerful light that you can keep in your pocket or on your keyring, then this light is for you. So far it has worked without fail in all conditions. It may seem a little pricey at [$], but you really do get your money's worth.

          I own 4 Felix flash lights. i have been very happy with all of them. At first I did not like the twist on-off, but it is less prone to turning on in my pocket
