    Default Questions re: my new Fenix L2D Premium Q5 ...

    Just got it today, thanks for everyone's help and advice! ;-)

    I see it claims to have 6 modes?
    "Two modes (6 types) of output, generation/turbo selected by turning the bezel"

    If I tighten the top all the way, it gets VERY bright, loosen it a bit and it returns to normal brightness. I'm missing how to enable the other modes?

    Okay, wait, when I top the button while the light is already on, it seems to cycle between a couple brightness levels and a strobe. Does that sound right?

    2.
    Does the light's setting reset to its default setting once turned off? For example ... if I enable strobe, then turn the light off and back on, should the strobe come back on automatically. It doesn't seem to, which seems like a reasonable behavior?

    3.
    And now the most pedestrian and embarrassing question. How should I attach the little lanyard? I normally see one hole in a light's case to thread a lanyard through, but the tail cap has two adjacent holes?

    In all though, I love it, thanks in advance! ;-)

    In one hole and out the other...thats the right way and it`s a pain in the...I used a needle and finally got it.

    The light will reset after turning it off...but it takes 2~3 seconds of off time...you probably figured this out by now. Great light BTW. Good pick!

    1) Yes, a soft press will change the levels

    2) There is no memory, so if you leave the light off for more than a few seconds, it will always start in either "low" or "turbo", depending on if the bezel is loose or tight.

    3) Stick it in one hole, and thread it out back through the other. Then put the thick strap end of the lanyard through the center of the loop in the smaller end you just threaded through, and pull tight.
