The elongated all-metal housing, containing four readily-available AA batteries with sufficient power, makes it comfortable to hold. Featuring constant brightness and waterproofing to IPX-8 standards, LD41 can be a good partner in various outdoor conditions and in emergencies.

    520LM,4 AA, sounds good for me.

    Just wonder how much it would be.

    Default Sounds good, what about the LD50? Also, C88

    Sounds good, but what ever happened to the other 4xAA Fenix - the LD50: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...LD30-LD41-LD50 Also, the Cyclone C88 is in a somewhat different class, but is 3AA and 910 lumens: Cyclone C88 XM-L U2 910Lm Flashlight

    I have to say Fenix's lights have been drifting toward mediocre.
    Only 3.5 modes (see how Turbo times out after 30 minutes)
    and their pricing is not positioned toward value any more.

    I don't think this would bother me, anyway, I could turn it up to the highest level when it turns down to high, the same to the TK35.
    And 30 minutes is quiet enough for me.
    Anyway, I would be happy to get 520 lumens by using only 4aa, and I like AA.

    I find the picture kind of missing, is it really able to tail stands or they just put it up by using the PS.
    Got to check with them.

    Any idea when or where this can purchased? Was about to get the Jetbeam PA40 but I like the Fenix interface better.

    The fact that it throttles down from turbo after 30mins is enough to put me off buying it. It's also the reason I don't won't buy a TK35. I know that in all real world usage it really won't make much difference at all, but it's enough to bother me, which is a shame really as they both look like fantastic lights.

    Fixed time throttling is pointless IMO especially as it can be re-activated immediately afterwards not to mention that flashlights tend to reach equilibrium temperature much sooner than 30mins. Temperature sensing thermal throttling would make much more sense as implemented in the 4sevens x10 which doesn't kick in unless it's really hot. I wonder if there is some sort of hack involving a soldering iron to prevent the throttling on the Fenix lights?

    Fenix plan to ship LD41 to distributors around the world on June 25.

    I actually think this looks better than the PA40, as I'm not generally a fan of the polymer bodied lights.

    I like that you get more modes with the LD41, and for me the mode spacing is much better. The LD41 is also shorter (albeit my a mere 8mm), and it actually weighs less than the PA40 (again, a paltry 5g).

    Now I just gotta see what they're asking for one.

    The 520 lumens & 2hrs 10 mins. runtime are good. The batteries carrier seems changed from earlier models use 4xAAs.

    Interesting !

    I would like Confirmation that it can accept Energizer Lithium L91 batteries.

    I love this light already!

    I do a lot of flash photography, so I have a near-infinite amount of eneloops. One problem with that is that - while they're great for flashlights - I can't break them up for a flashlight because then I'd have to recondition every battery individually.

    The form factor seems pretty good for a 4AA unit as well. Loving the double tailcap buttons, but I wonder how it'll work in practice. This would be a candidate to go into my night shooting camera bag, which now only has a fenix e11 on a single battery.

    Wow, I didn't even see that this light had a forward-clicky. That pretty much seals the deal assuming that the price is reasonable.

    In regards to the complaints about the squared off tailcap, I like it as I'll take function over form every time. The lack of tail-standing is what has kept me from the PA40, and clearly this light was designed with stable tail-standing in mind.

    So, does anyone have an idea of what the price is gonna look like for this light?

    "Notice: The LD41 will automatically enter into the high brightness level from the Turbo brightness level after a 30-minute working time with the security settings. So the runtime of the Turbo brightness is the accumulated time" '

    So in other words - basically a lie. I mean - "This light gives 800 lumens for 15 hours!" (Note: After 1 minute, light drops to 50 lumen "safety mode").

    Though this light does look very interesting to me. Just that one part is a bit off (and unrealistic - thus reading the fine print to see how that many lumens for that long using only 4xaa).

    I interpreted it differently than you did. To me it means that you can run the light in turbo mode for approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes total, assuming that you immediately cycle back to turbo after each 30 minute drop-down.

    I did a review of the prototype LD41:

    http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...ototype-Review

    There were a couple of early pics with the LD41 specified as having 458lm output, but my measurement of its output gave 510lm, so it looks like the prototype was pretty close to the version due to be released.

    What would have made this a perfect light for me would have been the use of the sidewinder switch (personally I don't like tail switches), but as a powerful AA powered light, this is excellent.

    The LD40 throws 207m and the LD41 200m. Is the diference really so negigible?

    It is not the throw that makes these two lights different. It's the LED and the Lumens, and the steel body, only if you care the plastic body in the LD40.

    I don't seem to find many beamshots of the LD41 (compared to LD40 would be nice). I assume the LD41 is a lot more floodier than the LD40. Maybe I should wait for the LD50 (or Zebra Q50)

    Can anyone confirm it can tail stand? I don't see Fenix mention it can tail stand. If can't tail stand, I won't buy it as I tail stand my flashlights a lot.

    There are two prices I could expect to see. It could be a moderate increase from the LD40, bringing the LD41 to around $65. However since the output has been increased significantly over the LD40 I could also envision it running about $80-$90 retail. As of yet there is not official price released.

    They are available now. Your pricing estimates are accurate on the high end.
