What customers say about "Key Specs"
Fenix TK15 Flashlight-400 Lumens
  • This was my emergency light. A good, solid light, to trust when the lights go out, or there's an earthquake.
  • Its a robust general use light that can take some accidental drops and real world use. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a super bright light.
  • The light has 4 brightness levels and has a decent operating time on the highest output level.
  • Solid light, well worth the money. I wanted a good light I could carry around with me that wouldn't break the bank & after doing a bit of looking around, that's what I got.
  • The brightness levels are perfect depending on scenario. The flashlight is well built and solid. Very happy.
Fenix PD35-1 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"
Fenix TK15 Flashlight-400 Lumens
  • As other have said, it's light weight but feels solid enough. The max brightness is definitely overkill for me but it's nice to have the brightness if I need it.
  • The light is small enough to carry in your front pants pocket using the included pocket clip.
  • This one (the TK15) is mounted on my home defense shotgun (Remington 870, 20 gauge) It is just the right size and works perfectly.
  • Tiny, powerful, and puts out a lot of light.
  • The textured handle is 1" in diameter which is standard for most removable weapon light mounts.
Fenix PD35-1 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"
Fenix TK15 Flashlight-400 Lumens
  • The light doesn't get hot and it has plenty of run time for half a day of run time on the brightest setting. It will auto-dim letting you know you're almost out of battery instead of simply turning off.
  • The light comes with 4 brightness settings (with 400 lumens being the brightest) and a defensive strobe function, which can be cycled via the mode select button. It will remember the mode you shut it off on, so turning it on again will resume the same setting.
  • The design is also smart in that you can set it down and it won't roll away. The belt clip is also pretty sturdy, perhaps a little too snug as you'll need two hands to slot it on your belt or pocket.
  • The light is BRIGHT. It allows 4 different light intensities.
  • Solid construction and materials. Dropped it when riding motorcycle at 40mph and it only had two small dings and remains fully functional.
Fenix PD35-1 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"
Fenix TK15 Flashlight-400 Lumens
  • Great light. Get some rechargeable batteries though.
  • The best flashlight I have ever owned. It provideds more light than any of my three D battery flashlights and is 1/3 the size.
  • Only thing I don't like is the price and the fact that batteries for this type of light are a little hard to come by. Stock up.
  • Someone said that the battery life is short, I don't know yet, have only put about an hour on it.
  • Only downfall is the battery usage when it is on the highest setting but that's nothing I am worried about
Fenix PD35-1 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.
