What I'd love is a Fenix E01 with a tail switch, but as I don't think that exists I'm open to suggestions. Priorities are:*tail switch*single AAA cell*10 or so lumens*long as possible run times*in the same price range as the E01.
Maybe it's just me but the Rex looks like a bit of a fiddle to recharge from a battery. If you get caught out and the power runs down it's not like you can just stick a spare battery in it. i found this review form when it was just being launched, about half way down the page.http://www.equipped.org/ORSummer2007.htm
The only thing that I found wierd about the Fenix E01 is that it doesn't have a from lens/cover.That said, I like the twist action and the brightness and simplicity work well for what I use it for (spare for finding bits and pieces in the car, etc)
I got a pack of 12 for £8-99; there are so light and quite bright
Do you have a link to a source?
Well, now that I have a small collection of multitools, I'm beginning to think that carrying a little flashlight on the keychain would be a good idea.I've done some searching today and the two I have it down to are the following:-Photon Rex-Fenix E01I've heard so many great things about the Fenix E01, but I think having a tail switch or a button would make using it so much easier. The Rex is definitely smaller and I like the idea of 4 LEDs along with the ability to recharge it using regular or rechargeable batteries. With a ton of toys around the house from 2 kids, we have a bucket load of rechargeable batteries so that really helps. It also comes with multiple functions, so that's a plus. I haven't read too many reviews on the Rex, but the product and the whole concept sound amazing. If you guys have any suggestions for a Flashlight Key Chains please chime in. I don't think I'd want to go with anything larger then a Fenix E01 though, gotta keep it light and small Thanks in advance!-Abe
Thanks for all of the replies guys!I think what I'm going to do is order a batch of those proton-like button flashlights from DealExtreme first. Knowing the way my family is, once they see it they'll want one, so I can give them out at first. Then once that dies down in the next few weeks I'll look into getting a AAA type of keychain flashlight, like the Fenix E01 or even something from Tank007.I'd love to get an LD01 or L0D (I think those are the model numbers) or even something from ITP...so maybe instead of getting a flashlight in the $10-$15 range now, I'll wait and save up for a flashlight with multiple modes
The LD01 is just the replacement for the L0D, so your more likely to find a LD01 these days. That said if you find a good price on a old L0D there really doesn't seem to be much in it performance wise.
