I heard back from Fenix. Here is the response the engineer gave:I just got the new Fenix HT32 which I love but a real low like 5 or so lumens would have been great.
I don't like that I have to put that flashlight away then pull another one out to get a real low output for maybe a few minutes, then put it away and pull out the brighter light.
It's an inconvenience. My Acebeam 1,300 meter thrower has a 1 lumen moonlight mode and it's all in one package.
"The main reason is that flashlights with 3,000 lumens or above cannot reach such low lumens at the same time. If it's too low, flickering will occur. "
So the PD35 V3.0 we recommend may be a good choice for the user.
I can't address the Acebeam features. Just understand patents can be involved. Thanks for your input!
