    Fenix E12 runtime : Is this possible/normal?

    I'm not surprised because Fenix have always had amazing efficiency drivers. For eg., the E01 puts out 8-12 lumens for 20+ hours so 3x that for AA sounds about right.

    A good well rounded edc light that won't break the bank

    I've been carrying and abusing a JetBeam Jet-1 Mk for the past year and am quite happy with it. Twisty, AA/14500 Li-ion capable with low-med-turbo and memory and a nice pocket clip. Purrfect. The only con is the head fits the tube a little looser than I'm used to (Fenix twisties). Less than...

    9 Lumens for 10 USD? I'd immediately compare it to the Fenix E01 (bless its little soul) for about the same price, running 10+ hours on one AAA and can be taken anywhere unobtrusively and in a pocket or around the neck.

    Review with Video: Why Not Cheapos, EBAY Cheapo "CREE" Lights

    Was I the only one who thought, "damn, these $3-6 lights are taking waaay more abuse than I'd have imagined they did"? I mean, I own a lot of quality lights, but cheapos (sk68s, hugsbys, Convoys, et al) all have their place in a flashoholic's collection. I don't get angry when friends buy...
