    Default Fenix LD01 Hazy Lens

    There’s some serious haze under the lens on this light, how easy is it to access for cleaning?

    I have been able to open an aluminum one with difficulty, for led replacement, but I have not been able to open my steel one ...

    Probably not worth messing with, it is what it is I suppose.

    I wish they still made those. That was a great light I shoulda kept.

    Self-diffusing; a nice option to have IMO ?

    One of the best flashlights of all time.

    Good positive spin, I like that.

    If you don't want to dissassemble it, put the head in a ziplock bag with some of those silica packets you get with new electronics.
    Usualy the head isn't completly airtight when unscrewed from the body.
    Leave it in the bag for a while, a few days or a week if you can wait that long and see if the haze starts to reduce.
    You can put it on by a window in the sun, a bit the bit of heat will help get the moisture out of the head and into the silica packets
    It is a high patience method, but it gives you the opprtunity to try out another light for EDC in the meam time

    Not looking like this is a moisture issue at this point, probably just the residue. That said, I will try your suggestions and see what happens.
