I might actually have to get one. The Lumitop EDC01 has been my goto AAA flashlight, but I do really like Fenix.
This covers me pretty well, until I grabbed the EDC01 I was rotating between an Olight... the EOS maybe? The helix one... and a Thrunite T05ti, but now I grab the Lumintop most times I want a small pocket light. I started out with Fenix though and they still hold a special place.
5 lumens, huh?I prefer something a little lower there. I think my only twistie has a sub-lumen mode, which I love.That's one strong keychain anchor, though!!Will it prevent tailstanding?
Fenix will always have a special place with me in that they were also my first quality flashlight. Fenix was also the brand that never failed me throughout all the shipboard abuse while in the Navy. You can never have too many AAA lights. They take up very little room and can almost always find batteries with most remote controls using multiple AAA.
Curiously the specs and price of the new E01 are almost identical to the current E05.Wonder if an E05 V2.0 is on the way?
Today I collected my first EDC torch (that isn't a cheap piece of sh#te from the pound store) (Image removed from quote.) Here it is with a PX, plus a Mini and Squirt (for comparison)
So of course we are all now waiting on your comprehensive review thread with tested run times, beam shots and lumen evaluation Not a fan of the billboarding on the front but I'm excited to try it out, the E01 was my second EDC light (behind the Microstream before it was rechargeable) a mere 9/10 years ago (god I feel old ) I'm sujre you'll find out how much a decent torch comes in handy day to day when it's in your pocket
"So of course we are all now waiting on your comprehensive review thread with tested run times, beam shots and lumen evaluation "I have literally no idea what you're talking about All I know is it makes dark places light and, when the battery pegs it, you'll be the first to know
What are those fobs you have attached to the Fenix and Squirt in the second pic?
They are these; https://www.polymathproducts.co.uk/product/glo-zipThey provide a soft glow and are quite robust
Thanks. They look nice, but shipping from the UK to the US is a bit pricey.I’ve definitely seen the value in having some sort of GITD fob attached to my flashlights so I can locate them in the dark. I’ve been using GITD fishing beads, but I’d love to find something better.
They look interesting. Do they glow on the reverse side as well, or only on the front ?I'm thinking about attaching them to keys, but knowing my luck if the only glow on one side if I drop my keys they will land with the glow side down (very similar to dropped buttered toast)Edit: Just found them on ebay, and the answer to my question is:"Both sides of the zipper pull glow, meaning it can be easily spotted whichever side is facing up."
SurgeUK, thanks for the offer. On ebay, shipping from the UK is about $25, which sadly is probably pretty close to actual cost.Instead, I've ordered some of thesehttps://www.msrgear.com/tents/tent-accessories/night-glow-zipper-pulls/05833.htmland will report back on their performance.
I'm having trouble seeing the few replies that I'd sent whilst abroad (Italy) using my phone, is this common
I think it is/was a forum-wide issue, with a number of posts now showing up as blank. There are several threads about it in various sub-forums.
