FENIX E12 V2.0 AA Powered Torch Flashlight, Black,
About this deal
All that confusing nonsense is to say: this is a really, really small flashlight! The new size and shape really make me want to like it! The super popular Fenix E12 has been updated to the E12 V2.0, now offering 160 lumens output from a Match CA18 cool white LED, that is all contained in a smaller, lighter weight body, while still utilising just one AA alkaline or NiMH battery.
Mode Switching: Mode switching is accomplished by half-pressing the tail switch once the light is already on. The tail switch works very well for this. The light comes on at Low, then toggles to Medium, then High. Category 4: Form Factor
Swift | Silent | Deadly
No problems here. Though I didn’t carry this light much I doubt durability would be an issue. Construction feels really solid, and it feels very nice in the hand. In fact it feels so good that I wish the clip was better so I could carry it more.
Unscrew the tail cap half a turn or take out the battery to prevent accidental activation during storage or transportation. But generally, you should attach the lanyard through these two holes on the tailcap. Both sides of the tailcap have holes. Light is fully stabilized! And it’s okay in Mid, you may expect it.But even in HIGH as well! In the latter case, this will require cooling, which is surprising in itself. I don’t remember any 2xAA model with thermal regulation. So in the presence of some kind of breeze or use in cold weather, you can expect an hour and a half or two (depending on the battery capacity) of a light that is quite practical in terms of brightness. Maximum beam distance 88 meters, waterproof to 2 meters and impact resistant to drops from 1 meter.Weight: Even though it’s smaller than the old E12, it’s heavier by 0.3 ounces. Not a huge deal – under 2 ounces is still infinitely carry-able. The o-ring may be worn out after using for a long time. If it happens, please replace the o-ring with a new one to keep the light properly sealed against water. I love that it starts on low with no mode memory. And again, no blinkies. Good spacing with the four modes. Low: 5 lumens. Not bad – a solid jump down from medium. Since we’re going low I wouldn’t mind this being just one or two lumens, but it works. Crenelated Bezel: No. On a light this small it doesn’t matter from a defensive standpoint; this light is not an effective impact weapon.
Fenix products are popular among outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, campers, law enforcement personnel, and military professionals due to their rugged construction, powerful output, and advanced features.

We began working with Fenix in February 2007 by selling their very early products and are proud to have worked with them ever since, with our company ethos proudly putting premium product quality and outstanding service at the core of our identity. Still, it wouldn’t hurt anything to have this light turn on in High, and it wouldn’t have cost Fenix anything extra. I don’t understand that decision. High: 160 lumens. For those of you keeping score that’s an additional 30 over the original E12. That’s a really solid upgrade.Because the clip is two-way, this light will work well as a hatlight. And everything negative I said about bezel up carry would be a positive for hat light use. Power and Runtime
