    I've been looking to get an "AA" model to replace my Fenix TK10. Looking around online I was liking the Fenix LD25. I stopped in a store to get some 5.11 pants and they had Fenix lights, so I got to check it out. I really liked the feel of it and got to play with a display model. I grabbed one. Getting it home and fiddling with it, I like it! I am impressed with the brightness and the use of AA batteries is a gigantic bonus.

    The default "outdoor mode" is 180 lumen (1hr46min runtime) and 45 lumen (13hr runtime). The "hidden" modes are a 85 lumen(6hr15min RT) /3 lumen (74hr RT) "camping mode" and a 85 lumen/ 45 lumen SOS flashing "Rescuing mode." You switch between the A/B outputs by loosening/tightening the head. You switch modes by quickly turning the head tight/loose X 2. The light will stay in the chosen mode until you change it.

    The body has been overmolded with plastic, giving it a nice feel and grip.

    Here, you can see the difference of the "Neutral white" LED of the LD25 vs the TK10. It almost looks like the light from an incandescent bulb, but it's very uniform as LED lights are.
