Outdoor Retailer: Flashlights from Fenix

Flashlight manufacturer Fenix had some of the most powerful lights at Outdoor Retailer. The brand's TK35 (820 lumens) and TK45 (760 lumens) were two of the brightest lights at the show. Both are waterproof, surprisingly lightweight for their size and power, and both awoke within me a strange desire to sit on my front porch and dazzle passing wildlife.

Flashlight envy aside, Fenix also displayed its multifunctional and practical MC10, a waterproof camp light with a sturdy clip and adjustable angle. With 125 lumens, and weighing only 1.9 ounces, this light offers a lot of illumination for its weight.

Fenix's first "angle light," the MC10 has a 90-degree tilting head and can be used as an L-shaped flashlight, headlamp, or camp light. It has three brightness settings (5, 50, and 125 lumens), plus SOS and strobe modes. The memory circuit remembers the last mode used when you turn it off.

Nice, it is great to see Fenix at the OR show. I have had Fenix lights for years and am a huge fan of them. They also have dedicated headlights and a large selection of small, very powerful lights that range in size from one AAA to multi cell CR123A.

All of their lights are digitally regulated as well, which means they emit at a constant brightness until the battery runs out, regardless of the output setting. Most of them have three main settings- low at 9-15 lumens, Medium at 35-55 lumens, and high at 100-150 lumens.  The exact range will depend on the model ya get.

It doesn't get much better than a chapstick sized light that will burn for 30 hrs on low, and put out 150 lumens on high. Throw in SOS, strobe, etc, and they are just sweet.

I have recently purchased a Fenix flashlight for work.  I wanted something that would run on two AA rather than the CR123As and wanted to get more than 100 lumens for less than $150....so goodbye Surefire.  I found the Fenix, which has three different levels of brightness on "normal" mode along with an SOS strobe.  When place in "Turbo" mode the light is INCREDIBLY bright and has a very rapid strobe.  It is well worth the money.  It has solid construction and I think it will even make a good light to take to the woods with me due to it's many brightness settings.  After some good thrashing, a review to come.
