    Looks interesting, but with a LD40 body no?

    Does it use a R2 or R3 XP-E ?

    Looks like it'll throw noticeably better than the LD40 XP-G, but slightly less bright

    It;s just a new LD40
    Looks good, but won't take one.

    edit; Had a look at this light, at my local dealer. Do think now that I'll take one. That plastic handle is very handy in cold-weather.

    I can already imagine how concentrated the beam will be

    Yeah, reflector looks decently big

    Meh...

    Only 3 brightness levels? the forth mode wasted on a strobe?




    Unless this thing is a throw-king, or a follow-up to the TK20, I don't really see a reason for it.

    Why get this when a Jetbeam PA40 delivers 468lm and is structurally almost identical? > love my PA40

    i think the point of this light is to bring dual switches (for instant strobe, mode switching, etc.) on a flashlight to the general population.

    Does anyone know how much it'll cost?

    @Kwalker, the PA40 and this serve two different purposes. Your PA40, while surely much brighter, simply won't throw as far as this. The PA was around 5K lux I believe, this is 17K (supposedly). However, it is obviously not as bright as the PA

    Cheers

    Tobrien my friend, yes, I believe you are correct, I assumed this as well seeing that "E" in E40 stands for "Economy", so perhaps it would be more feasible for more people?

    That looks SOOO much like that old Streamlight 4AA.

    What happened to the efficiency? PA40 is supposed to run 6h on 220lm using the same battery format. A step backward IMHO...

    That's to be expected really as the PA40 has 4 times the die area and therefore will be running much more efficiently at that level. The advantage of the E40 is throw. I would have expected a bit better from the E40 though but we need to see runtime graphs from both to compare. Specs tell you very little, even if they are ANSI rated.

    $40 for a decent durable light from a trusted manufacturer? I'd probably buy one. It's a little throwy but it would have its function. I've wasted more on lights that were a bigger gamble before (and lost, of course)

    E40 the rapper?
    LOL, I am glad to see this. Pretty much for more throw. I am actually glad to see them use that emitter.
    I figured I would seen the LD41/LD50 though. It's actually brighter then the LD40.

    Still love my PA40(SMO) though.

    I think this would be just great specially for normal folks just like the E21 that is both affordable and built like a tank. As I was reading its specs, I was even ashamed because my Quark turbo X can only do about 10,000 lux; not that they can be compared but it is my farthest thrower as of now

    Awesome, this is just what I want to see (more lights using XP-E R4s). Fenix has been continuing a disappointing trend by "upgrading" their lights to less throw. This is exactly what happened with the LD20 series (started with XR-E Q5, went up to XP-G, and the LD22 has an even shorter head). Its nice to be able to have a decent thrower that isn't a. a high-current, giant-reflectored XM-L with short battery life or b. high-end aspheric setup with no spill. I think the middle ground has been lost.
    Its also a bargain at $40. As always I wish Fenix had better low modes. The runtime of this thing at less than 10 lumens would make it great for around-the-house/yard use too.

    I'm thinking more about this.. how can the E40 out-throw the TK41?

    Dont think that it does, where did you read that?

    It wont, the TK41 is listed at 472m and the E40 is 268m. Not even close...........

    It can out-throw the LD41​, that's a whole different animal.

    yea man! thanks! i think this light is intended to be sold more in sporting goods stores where laypeople will see it and have a stepping stone into high(er) end lights.

    Not sure where that came from. As a former owner of the TK41, the E40 definetly can't outthrow the TK41 like A10 said whole different animal. Where dis that came from lol? Would have never thought to compare the 2 in throw or class. It's also what i wanted to see to A10.

    I am surpised they released this. I also wonder if the XP-E will hit the R5 bin

    My bad.. meant to say "LD41"


    The LD41 is 520 lumens, 10,000CD for 200 yards
    The E40 is 220 lumens, 17,500CD for 260 yards

    it looks to me like they have the same head.. can the size of the LED make that much of a difference in throw?


    anyone have a guess as to the CD of the TK45? It's my big boy and Fenix doesn't list it, so I can only wonder as to how well the E40 throws

    I going to buy a couple for the kids and to give away to people. $40 for a throwy LD40 is a steal.

    Oh I see, I get lights mixed up too sometimes.
    Yeah, the emitter can make a big difference. The size of the dye for the XP-E is much smaller and brighter in area then the XM-L, that means tighter hotspot. And now the XP-E is in the R4 bin too which is awesome(hope it hits R5)
    Overall utput maybe higher on the XM-L in the LD41 but the higher surface brightness that the XP-E/XR-E (XP-C really high) technically make the E40 a brighter flashlight ten the LD41 but the LD41 puts out overall more light spread out in flood.

    Selfbuilt says the TK45(with the XP-G R4) is about 12,150lux. It's now in the R5 bin so I don't know about the current TK45 but might not be much different. I actually liked that light when I had it for a very short while.
