My new torch. Mini-Porsche for scale. Was sick of buying cheap torches and having them be rubbish, then break at just the wrong time, so researched a bit and found this.
Holy crap, it's bright. Like, "how the hell does one tiny surface mount LED kick out that much light" bright. Like, flatten 2xAA batteries in 2.5 hours bright (on max beam). I can light up trees over 100M away using this pocket-sized beast. 175 Lumens, if that means anything to anyone. specs etc here
. Also, it's very pleasantly formed, and is nicely balanced to hold.
Many thanks to Rob at The Photon Shop
for his help and superb customer service. If you want a Fenix torch (and you do, you really do), Rob's the man to talk to.
