    They're very similar. The LD 22 is 215 lumens on turbo and has a 2:15 minute run time. The Ld 20 is 205 on turbo for 2 hours. Also the LD22 has a rubber selector button to select between modes.

    I've got the tiny E15, the slightly larger PD20, and an E50, and am extremely pleased with all three lights. I EDC the E15 and the PD20, and when going out on jobs where I require a toolbox, the E50 (and other lights) get packed in the tool box.

    The E50 has the added convenience of working with, or without the extension tube. The extension tube allows for use of the light with two 18650 batteries. Using the light without the extension yields the same light output, with shorter run time.

    Very dependable lights. It's hard to go wrong with a Fenix, and they come in all sizes, battery configurations, and price ranges.

    I have several of them but the only gripe I have is the cheesy clip on some models which ALWAYS comes off and gets lost for me?
    I was camping last weekend and had the LD21 and a Zebra SC52 and between the 2 I had any kind of light that I needed and a backup too.

    The best that are easy to find for the price in my experience.

    I saw the title of this thread and immediately pictured some guy named Felix selling flashlights out the back of a primer-painted van.

    I have the Fenix EO1, EO5, LD10, LD20, E15, TK50 and PD22 and like all of them. I carried the LD10 for about 6 months before switching to my Surefire E1B, but have been carrying the PD22 for close to 6 months now. I carry the PD22 mainly because I would hate to lose my Surefire at work, I would hate to lose the PD22 but being half the cost of a Surefire I could deal with.

    I have a couple of Fenix lights and love them. I keep an LD-10 in my trauma kit with a lithium battery for emergencies. I also gave a single CR123 light to my sister in law for her keychain. It's super bright!

    I have 3 Fenix lights and am impressed by all. Will be buying more from them. Mostly will own only Fenix but I do plan on buying a g2x here soon maybe. Check out promotive.com to see if you qualify, you won't regret it.

    I just picked up an E40 on CPF Marketplace. That makes #4, of the Fenix collection :). Love 'em! Would love to get my hands on a TK75.

    I find Fenix pretty good except for their recent LD & PD series. I dislike the design and usage of the side switch

    I have Fenix LD20 over 4 years and is still working fine , and always a E01 on my keys

    I have a TK-35 from the day it was released and it's one of my most loved flashlights. I consider TK-35 as the one to have "if you could only have one flashlight", a really good, dependable and sturdy all-round light.

    I also might be in for a PD35 when it's out, depending on specs and UI.

    Yeah how is the E11 on a keychain?

    To the OP I keychain carry a Fenix E05. I like everything about this little single AAA light. I'm still using the first Duracell battery I put in it when I first got it last year.

    I have to agree. I'm glad I got my PD20 before Fenix made it a more complicated light with that ridiculous side-switch. If I ever lose my PD20, I won't be replacing it with a PD22.

    I only picked up the PD22, because it was available for twenty bucks, shipped to my doorstep, on CPF Marketplace, and in pristine condition. Couldn't pass that up; but I've got to say, I'm very pleased with the interface on that light. The only (other Fenix) light I have, with the side switch, is the E50, and I don't really have any complaints about electronic switches (just took some getting used to, as compared to mechanical forward clicky switches of most of my other lights).

    I'm still drooling over the TK75, which I have yet to buy, when funds permit. Gotta have one :|. Got the Fenix bug. You all can relate, I'm sure.

    i agree, i have a pd30 which was made before that odd side switch. i liked fenix for their basic design and no draining memory modes. but these side switches are steering me away from upgrading to their newer lineup

    That's the thing with EDC gear in general. You find something that works well, buy another one exactly like it before the company that makes it discontinues it or "improves" it.

    I like the side switch a lot as it just works best for me and the way I use the light.
    I use the momentary all the time and I like knowing the light will come on exactly as I left it the last time.
    The side switch is a brilliant idea as the switching all from the tail switch makes it too easy to change levels when I don't want to.

    To each his own.
