What customers say about "Key Specs"
Anker Bolder LC90 2-Cell Rechargeable Flashlight
  • This light is a great flashlight. It's brighter than your typical lights from stores at 900 lumens.
  • Highly recommend as a house hold and reliable work light, leave in the counter or car glovebox.
  • The flashlight is very bright and it has multiple settings which make it a very versatile flashlight.
  • I fish at night. I need quality dependable lighting. This has provided the quality I demand and has also brought flexibility which is a huge bonus.
  • Honestly it seems well built and works fine, but for the price i'd expect a much better quality LED and light pattern.
Fenix PD35 Flashlight
  • Almost a year and the light is still working, nothing broke and everything functions as usual. Dropped it a few times so it has some small scratches and dings on it.
  • The other produced a very nice bright white light that lacked a clear border or definition. There is clearly a Quality Control issue here.
  • This Fenix PD 35 is small in size but big on power. The ability of the PD35 to retain the power level desired when first turned on is a great benefit.
  • One note...the light on the top few modes is VERY, VERY bright. This is not a toy. If you use it in those modes, never point it at any eyes (human or pet).
  • I keep this light on a night stand at night. Because of it's brightness and it's ability to strobe, this is a tactical light, "my bump in the night light." should I have to grab a personal defense weapon to go with it, as well as a general purpose light.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Anker Bolder LC90 2-Cell Rechargeable Flashlight
  • Not as big as I thought it would be which is kind of a plus, as it is easier to put in a pocket. Came with all that you need to plug it into a USB charger & get going. The cable is a decent length so the light is not hanging off the wall.
  • I LOVE this flashlight!!! It is a good weight, the length of the beam is amazing and just what they advertised. The options with the light -- so varied.
  • Not as big as I thought it would be which is kind of a plus, as it is easier to put in a pocket.
  • For it's size, it is only as bright as any $10 lithium flashlight on amazon that is half this size, i guess the trade off is battery life?
  • I like the size and feel. The case is quite strong and would work well if needed for striking.
Fenix PD35 Flashlight
  • It is a great, well built EDC flashlight, and has been on my side since it arrived a couple of weeks ago.
  • The flashlight is of very high quality as with all Fenix Flashlights. The price is well worth the bucks for brightness, quality of light, fit and finish, compactness, light weight, and toughness.
  • If you want a bright light in a small package this is the light for you!
  • This Fenix PD 35 is small in size but big on power.
  • I did a lot of research on different pocket size lights as I was selecting a light for EDC.

What customers say about "Features"
Anker Bolder LC90 2-Cell Rechargeable Flashlight
  • The bad to the new bolder lc90 is the button got changed to long press for on off and click for more modes.
  • I also like the way the mode cycles on each press of the on/off button - less confusing than the old "turn it on & off within 30 seconds" appraoch.
  • I like that it has the different modes between high, medium, low, strobe and SOS.
  • I really like he high mode on zoomed in and out.
  • I'm also not a big fan of having to click through all the modes to get to the one I want, or to shut it off.
Fenix PD35 Flashlight
  • Rubber brightness button works without malfunctioning and the rubber hasnt deteriorated or broken off yet.
  • The on/off switch is located on the tail of the light, and there are raised edges surrounding it, so it's less likely to be turned on by a stray bump.
  • Its tactical mode is great, with easy access to all other modes by using the switch near the front of the flashlight.
  • The PD35 also has a mode change button on the barrel, a much more logical and convenient place to toggle between brightness modes once the light is on.
  • I don't much care for the mode button on the front but I got used to it.

What customers say about "Power"
Anker Bolder LC90 2-Cell Rechargeable Flashlight
  • First, two batteries for longevity is amazing as the smaller lc90 only uses one.
  • The pair of 18650 cells are in a sleeve and packaged as a single battery. It would appear to have a balancing circuit built in. Regardless, they cannot be charged with a conventional charger that expects cells to come one at a time.
  • I bought the double cell version as I wanted a flashlight with longer battery life between charges, and also because I realized many of the negative reviews were from costumers whom bought the single cell version.
  • I like that I can recharge the two-cell batteries and that they deliver ample juice to power-up this flashlight
  • One drawback to this rechargeable flashlight is that the batteries are non-removable.
Fenix PD35 Flashlight
  • This flashlight also provides very long run times on all modes (over an hour @ 800 lumens).
  • This is a very well built device. The brightness is excellent and it takes 18650 batteries in addition to CR123A's. That means you can recharge the batteries.
  • I used the same batteries at the same level of charge and in the same environment, etc.
  • My only complaint is that I wish it would just drain the battery completely instead of switching off after 4-5 minutes when it's on turbo mode.
  • I'd recommend buying the 3.7 rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries b/c you're not just going to run out to the store and grab some CR123A batteries.
