Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light I purchased this to fit into the sheath alongside my Leatherman Wave mutil-tool. It's the perfect compliment and packs an amazing amount of light from one AAA battery. It was the only light in the class that was powered by a AAA battery (commonly found), included a pocket clip and utilized a push-button switch on the cap instead of a twist switch. I've been impressed with the quality and quantity of light, build and finish quality as well as the price. I'm not often so impressed by a product, but this one really deserves it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Switch failed...on two in a row On paper, this is a superb flashlight, and was exactly what I was looking for in a AAA flashlight. All the positive reviews here make me wonder if I inexplicably got two lemons in a row, but I ended up returning two of these flashlights in succession for a tail switch that would not function consistently. I even traded out parts with a Fenix E01 to confirm that it was the switch that was malfunctioning. But no matter what, both flashlights simply failed to work consistently; sometimes they'd come on, sometimes they wouldn't. This was after minimal use, no abuse. Very frustrating, as this is otherwise a very versatile and well-designed light. With REI's return policy, I still recommend taking a look if you're in the market for this type of light...hopefully you don't run into the quality issues I experienced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size is perfect for handy and light options good Alaska - living here so am a Flashlight Fan. Have the blinding at the length of a football field lights which are good to have when out, out there. This one is always around and surprisingly useful. Only wish I could change the order of most bright to be the default start when first lit. Good quality. I find the clip to be useless as it is not trust worthy. The light can easily separate from the clip. The clip should be made in a complete ring that slips and tightens over the body of the light. Also would prefer a yellow body option. When it is dark finding the flashlight should be as easy as possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from powerful & durable; frustrating clip I am a espresso machine technician and use this light everyday. It's perfect for undercounter work and getting light inside the machine. However the clip has failed numerous times; it even came out of my pocket one time whilst on a hike/mushroom hunting. I did the same hike the following weekend and found it near a hedgehog mushroom patch! It turned on right away even despite continuous rain during the previous week. Great light, but the clip needs an upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice EDC light - I recommend it. I've carried AA/AAA lights every day for the last 8-9 years. My last light was a Fenix LD01, which I considered to be about the perfect EDC flashlight. The LD01 had a twist cap to turn it on/off, and 3 light levels: 3, 26, and 72 lumens. Somehow I lost that one on my last camping trip, and needed to replace it. However, I was annoyed to find out that it had been discontinued, and replaced with the LD02. It bothers me when companies "fix things that aren't broken" - anyways... Apparently Fenix decided to upgrade another "twist on, twist off" AAA light in their model lineup, the E05. The old version of the e05 had a single "on" level of 27 lumens, while the new "2014 version" has 3 on levels: 8, 25, and 85 lumens. This makes the "new" version of the e05 practically the same as the ld01. I guess this is why they decided to retire the LD01, and replace it with the new "tail click pushbutton" LD02. I was hesitant that they had upped the "low" mode setting on the LD02 to 8 lumens, when my LD01 had only 3. However, I've actually found that this is way better. I find myself using the LD02 on "low" mode most of the time, since that light level is sufficient for night walks, etc. The LD01 low mode's 3 lumens wasn't really good for much. So I expect a net battery life extension using the new version, since I'm not using medium mode nearly as often. The medium and high modes between the LD01 and LD02 seem to be about the same to me (from my memory of the LD01), even though the LD02's "high" mode is 100 lumens as opposed to 72 for the LD01. I LOVE the tail click switch on this model. I never realized how annoying it was to have to use 2 hands to turn the LD01 on and off all the time - especially when you are carrying a toddler in one arm. The single-handed operation of the LD02 rocks. It's much easier to turn on and off, and switch modes. Love this light so far. It's built solidly, has nice brightness, and I expect it to last a long time. I hope the tail click button lasts - that's my only concern, because I'm not sure if Fenix has made any flashlights with that feature before. Miscellaneous notes - the LD01 buzzed a bit on certain light modes (never bothered me because I couldn't hear it unless my ear was next to it, but some people complained about it online). The LD02 doesn't buzz at all. Haven't had to change the battery yet, and I've been using it a lot (had it about 2-3 weeks now). Some people might complain that you can't stand this light on its tail end - the LD01 could supposedly do that, but I've never found that feature to be useful. I think that would have only worked on a perfectly flat concrete or hardwood floor. Battery clip on this model is nicer than on the LD01 - you can actually get it on and off, although I left mine off. Summary - great light, and a surprising "upgrade" to what I felt was already a perfect light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small but strong - a great EDC light. I ordered this light for every day carry and have been very pleased so far. I have owned Fenix lights in the past and they have served me very well, and are still serving today after several years of moderate use. Unless you are planning to shoot them from a cannon, or drop them from an airplane they should have no problem standing up to the abuse of normal wear and tear, and then some. Now - on to some specific feedback for this light. First it is very small. I found the picture of the light in someone's hand a bit misleading. I was expecting a light that was sized something like 1.5-2 AA batteries, where the actual size is just slightly taller than a tube of lip balm, and ever so slightly thinner in diameter. It’s a bit smallish in my large hands, but that's mostly a good thing to me. It is light, extremely packable, and man it packs a punch. Despite its small stature, it feels very solidly built and the knurling provides excellent grip. I mentioned packability and for me that means Pocketability. This sits in my left back pocket, clipped to the upper edge. It feels very secure, is hardly noticeable, and very easy to reach and deploy when I need it. I think this would also be comfortable clipped inside the waistband if you don't have a good pocket option, or want it to remain out-of-sight for any reason. I also carry one of these tucked into the iPhone pocket of my hydration belt for running, and it is hardly noticeable in there. Now onto power. This light packs a punch and on high it has the capability to temporarily blind/disorient someone which gives it added purpose as a defensive tool. Last night I was outside standing under several deciduous trees in the driveway and the light illuminated all of the foliage at about 50-60ft (15-30 meters) away, which leaves little to be desired when it comes to brightness for when you need it. It is advertised as running up to 45 minutes on that setting and that seems ample to me from a single AAA cell. The reality is you will most likely use this light on medium or low and both are very adequate. Run times aren't noted on the website for medium but the packaging claims 4hrs 15minutes. The Medium setting is perfect for those half-lit areas like a garage, the back of a car, etc., where the low setting is still plenty of light for poorly lit or totally dark areas. It isn't so overpowering that it will destroy your night vision, but it will still give you plenty of light for standard tasks like navigation etc. It is on par with a good/bright LED keychain light, and claims to run for up to 15 hours on this setting. I'll pop the light on low and aim it at the wall or ceiling and that provides ample light for said tasks. NOTE - this light always switches on in the MEDIUM setting, and then can be adjusted to low, and then high by subsequent flicks of the tail cap. You can click the tail cap button all the way in our out or just "half-press" the button for a quicker mode-change. Lastly the clip is removable but feels very solid. It has an added bonus of allowing the light to be strapped to your watch band, collar, backpack strap etc. for hand-free illumination. I carry a timbuk2 messenger back and clipping the light into the back edge of your shoulder pad makes for a perfect over the shoulder hands free carry. I'm very pleased with this light and look forward to years of service from it. I'll update this review as I further test out the battery life as compared to the package claims.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent light, weak clip The flashlight was awesome, used it at least once every 48 hours while it was in my pocket, until it was not longer there one day. The clip is weak, bends easy and started to get lose rather quickly, one day it must have popped out of my pocket when getting my keys or a pen and that was the end of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part of my EDC light rotation Love this little guy. It has become one of 4 Fenix lights I carry on a daily basis. A clean, well- formed, and perfectly focused beam when you need one. So light and compact you can almost forget you have it on you. I carry mine in the sheath attached to a belt loop with a carabiner. Tossed the clip. I have one Fenix AAA lamp with the twist switch, and this one with its tail switch, and like them both equally.
