    I've had a few, never had a problem.
    I have one of the penlights for work (LD05), firs comfortably in a pen pocket, yet it has better illumination than a 4D Maglite.

    I got a E01 on my keychain and a TK-21 that I use whenever I need a lot of light :D I think that Fenix makes great lights.

    I am really happy with my ld12, great mode selection interface (side button) and a perfect semi deep carry clip! Good firm tailcap.. Only thing i dont like is the purple tint and the fact that every fenix light i have ever pocked up had a off center LED.. I am an olight only guy now, but i still enjoy my ld12

    I've been poor for the last few years (lousy economy!) so I've been unable to spare the funds for a Fenix light of my own, but I've handled a few and the seem to be very impressive lights for the money. I've also heard rave reviews from many happy Fenix owners.

    When I'm employed again, I'll be obtaining a few for carry.

    I just got my first Fenix light today (its my first cr123 so not super knowledgable) and holy :censored: it's awesome!

    I got a PD32 ultimate edition :) 9 to 740 max lumens. And well priced, this thing rocks. I can see what all the fuss on this flashlight stuff is ;)

    I highly recommend!

    It won't be your last Fenix either. I'm already planning my next Fenix based on what I need it for and want it for.

    Okay, CR123 cells are no joke. Please educate yourself thoroughly about them. Especially when using lights that require more than one cell.

    Here's the short version:

    NEVER buy cheap no-name cells that are Made in China. Best way to save money on such cells, and to ensure that your light doesn't "vent with flame," is to follow these 3 steps . . .

    1) Buy online from a reputable vendor. (Ex. Lighthound)

    2) Buy in bulk. (You save an incredible amount.)

    3) Only buy CR123 primaries that are Made in America or Japan. (This is to ensure that you are buying cells that have passed through actual quality control checks. Unlike the dangerous junk, no-name, brands coming out of China.)

    I've been carrying PD20 everyday for a few years now! Dropped it a few times and no problems.

    Picked up a TK15 S2, and a PD30 R5, which should be on their way. Pic's to folow, when they arrive!

    The Fenix family continues to grow :)

    I'm still itching to get my hands on a TK70, and a TK75.

    I lust after a tk75. I don't really need it, but I want one. I wish I could see an above shot of throw, like from a helicopter. Oh and I have an ld10, that in my pocket every day, and an ld20 that rides on my maxped and an e05 on my keychain. They are very good lights for the money.

    There should be a PD22 R5 on the way, soon. Will take a group shot of the new family, once it, the TK15 S2, and the PD30 R5, make it here.

    The Fenixes seem to be muliplying :)

    Boy, can I relate to that. At this time last year, the only Fenix light I owned, was the e15. Seven Fenix lights later, I'm already thinking of another TK series light (but not sure which one I'll end up with).

    I still can't decide on my next Fenix but I think I narrowed it down.

    I'm really enjoying the TK series lights (only have two in that particular series), but I love the user interfaces, features, and output. The TK75 is at the top of my (and many others') list of Fenix lights to get, but I've a feeling I'll (more than likely) end up with numerous other TK Series lights, before that happens. Come to think of it..I'm not really sure which one to pick next, lol. The TK22 and 35 have their appeal.

    Which one(s) do you think you've narrowed down your choices to, in buying next?

    I'm looking at the E11 simply because of its size. I'm a fan of small bright flashlights. I also like small lights that use common batteries like AA, and AAA.

    You won't regret the E11... Possibly the most used and useful light I own...
