and my Fenix L0D has been serving as keyring carry for a while.

(Image removed from quote.)

There's an oldie-but-goodie!  I haven't seen an L0D in a while, but used to own one several years ago.

I've moved away from Fenix in recent years.  Of the many, many flashlights I've owned, Fenix brand lights are the only ones with which I've had reliability issues.  One example is the LD02 SS that my wife carries in her purse.  It was warrantied a few years ago due to failure, and the replacement just failed a couple of weeks ago.  It's really a shame, because Fenix is the brand that began my foray into flashlight collecting (L1T model).

It's flashlight Friday! I got a little tired of the normal, required face in the crowd look and carried a little color at work today.   :)  Nitecore Smart PD EX10 with re-flashed firmware and XP-G emitter.

Led Lenser A3 I picked up on a trip recently.  Reminds me of the Maglite Solitaire I had on my keyring for years but this puts out a respectable amount of light.

I'm trying to think, but I suspect this is the very light that got me into quality LED lights. 8)  It's a shame you've had poor experiences with them though.  For my part I've only ever had their AAA lights (E01, E05 and this L0D) and so far so good.

Me too.  I got into great lights after the Fenix L1D, but the L0D was my first real Edc.

Here's my current one.  The preon Revo, stainless.  Modded of course.  Nichia 219 on the keychain.  This is a spare on tec p7 clip with neutral xpg2.

Here's a thread that died a death.  Time for some CPR. :angel:

Been carrying my Hugsby XP-1 for the last couple of days and, so far, I'm impressed.  Nice bright single mode 1xAAA light, tail switch, pleasant beam colour and, very important here, cheap. ;)

This week I got the Thrunite T10S with the new XP-L emitter. 0,15/13/208 lumens on a single AA battery, with memory and no hidden flashy modes. What's not to like? :D

So far I like it very much. Yes, the full SS construction makes it a bit heavier in the pocket but I don't mind it in this case. I wanted an SS clicky in my arsenal. ;)

Only wish the pocketclip's front lip was raised higher, it's a bit dificult cliping it to thicker winter clothing materials.

Carrying my beloved Eagletac D25A Clicky at the moment.  If I could only save one torch from a fire it'd be this one.

I think the Titanium edition with Nichia neutral white emitter will be to your liking.

I was having a look at that earlier.  Aren't you dropping quite a few lumen with the Nichia?  I know it's supposed to be very efficient and have a great colour, but I'm not certain it's worth it myself.  Plus you lose the party piece of overdriving with a 14500 to get the 700-ish lumen output. 8)

Yes there is a bit of a lumen drop. The XML cool white is 140 OTF lumens.

I wouldn't direct drive a light of this size. It will get very hot, very quickly.

The specification page seems to show a neutral white XM-L as well as the Nichia: http://www.eagletac.com/html/d25arc/specs.html

If that's still a real option, that's what I'd go for I think.  Mine is a little older and has the neutral white XP-G2.

This is my new little guy, a nice little find I think, perfect for the keychain! Yeah it's a little bigger then those freedoms, but in the same weight class and yet throw off 45lm, and get this, "rechargeable"! At first when I got it, it didn't have any juice so I had to find something to recharge it, that's the only downer, it doesn't come with a charger, you gotta find something to charge via mini usb! Luckily my wife's kindle worked, cause I thought a standard usb would work.. Other then that I think it's great, not all fancy, just low, high, and hold for everything in between, no flashy or code.. I think I grabbed it, well the wife did for me, for :think: $10?

Nothing new here but my only true EDC flashlight is my Fenix E05 on my keychain, for the size and price it's a great little AAA light :tu:

I bought one and it hasn't been very reliable sadly. Not sure why but it doesn't hold a charge very well. Hopefully mine is just a one off :(

They are a great idea though. :)
Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

That's a shame Mike.  I really like the idea as well and have had one sitting on my wish list for the last few weeks.  As you say; hopefully it's just yours.  Thought about sending it back?

Well it only cost £7 from Hong Kong and the company said I'd have to pay shipping to send it back so its just noir worth it :(

When it works it is great though as its pure flood :)

Sorry to hear, I've had mine for two weeks and it's still bright, I haven't used it besides a few sec here and there, but it's still holding a bright light/charge.
