Thread: E01 or bust

    Default E01 or bust

    So rumor has it the E01 is discontinued.

    C'mon man. That's like cancelling opening day of baseball.

    Realizing things change over time Levis still sells 501's, Converse still sells Chuck Taylors, pin stripe suits still rule, Ray Ban wayfarers still rock and so does the E01.

    I felt the same way about Arc. At least we have some warning this time.

    Guess I'll be keeping my newly found stock of old-school E01's.

    Thumbs down Re: E01 or bust

    Dang! E01 was my 1st "real" key chain light that stood the test of time (still have it). Even got the wife to rock one, and most of my family received them over the years as gifts.... Still puts a smile on my face when I see a random key chain at a family gathering with one attached to this day.

    Maybe they're just going to do us a favor and stuff a Yuji in there and call it the E01w

    We know when Fenix discontinues a light, they have something better in mind. The E01 is a classic! Hard to top but we will see. We have asked the Fenix engineer to read this post so continue to share your thoughts. Your input is always appreciated.

    You would think whatever tooling or programming for bodies and the driver are long paid for and owes them nothing. A simple emitter swap would let things just keep rolling along. Make a couple thousand a year in one run, switch the line over until those sell out. Keep the E01 fans happy and buying your products. Just thinking out loud...

    Thanks for your input.

    There's this one company whose name ryhms with beambright who has a model the ryhms with psycrodream and they keep updating it while keeping the original name.
    Basically if you liked a previous model for its beam or runtime it is impossible to know which model you are buying at eBay etc.

    Point being if you guys do update an E01, please call it a name that would ensure folks know which light they are buying. But please keep making the Converse Chuck Taylor of flashlights, the E01.

    Thank you.

    Just do what they do with the E0, just tack on the next sequential number. E012.

    Still waiting for something "better" than the TK61.
