This thing is AWESOME!! :-) I gotta tell ya that this is quickly becoming one of my favorite flashlights. This thing puts out some SERIOUS, pure white light yet it has a push switch near the head where the brightness can be dialed down, to conserve battery life. It turns on and off with a push switch at the rear - where you also access the batteries. For its size, this is a very well-made and powerful flashlight made of heavy-duty machined aluminum and it comes with a very stiff black pocket clip. The on/off push switch can be lightly pressed to instantly turn the light on and off (by releasing it) without the need to click the switch all the way down for full-time on. I would think that this would work well in a tactical situation where you only want the light on momentarily, perhaps to blind an attacker. At full power, this is a blindingly bright, white light with a very good light pattern. The light cannot be focused but there is a very bright, full circle of light in the very center and a fairly wide halo of ambient light from that center point which provides more than enough light for a wide area around that center point. Overall, this is a great weather-tight, bright, tough light that can be used as an everyday light (with the lumens lowered) or as a tactical light (to perhaps blind an attacker) with lumens pumped up. I highly recommend this flashlight. 5Fenix PD32 flashlight; very well-made and very bright I bought this to use as my EDC flashlight. I'd n ever owned a Fenix product before but decided on this one due to a review on a youtube channel I trust. Boy was I surprised.In the youtube review, the reviewer showed the brightness levels as well as the S.O.S. and beacon modes. But you can tell how bright a flashlight is in a video only so much. This thing is much brighter than I thought it would be.When my cat has to go out at night and I have to go out and look for her (she likes to explore sometimes), I always a flashlight with me so I can point it in places I need to see. The first night I had this was one of those nights. I was amazed at how much better I could see with this light than with my old flashlight (don't know the model of that light). This flashlight will light up both of the huge oak trees in our front yard with little problem It will even shine across the road into my neighbors tree (about 50-60 feet) and allow me to see very well into that tree.....and that's not even on the turbo setting. I like the tail cap switch and the setting button on the side. It makes it easier than having to push the power switch several times or at different intervals or holding it down to switch between the different settings.The pocket clip is very well-made and is neither too tight nor too loose. I don't carry it in my pocket, though, rather in a sheath on my EDC bag.I would definitely recommend this flashlight to anyone looking for a great EDC light that is lightweight but also carries a lot of functionality. 5Superb light for general or tactical use There are many reasons to love this light. I ordered it based on the ability to utilize different batteries as well as the positive review history.Pros:- VERY bright in the strongest mode.- variable power settings allow for use in nearly any situation without burning through battery power.- ability to use CR123 lithium or 18650 lithium rechargeable batteries. Light is designed to use the 18650 thus making good rechargeable batteries a solid option. This alone makes it very worthwhile.- the brightest mode is exceedingly useful for a tactical light. It will dazzle your opponent and the some.- fits in the palm of your hand, lightweight and simple to use.- controls are easy, tailcap switch press for momentary on and click for constant on.- intensity button on the bezel makes it easy to switch between intensity settings.- lowest setting is very useful for basic needs without eating the battery while still providing sufficient light for performing tasks.- great run time even with the 18650 rechargeable. I strongly recommend the following battery:http://www.amazon.com/EagleTac-3100mAh-Protected-Rechargeable-Battery/dp/B007GEU666/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357063033&sr=8-1&keywords=eagletac+18650Cons:- for tactical use, the light is small and not particularly good for anything but producing light. It's definitely not a D-cell mag light if you know what I mean.Overall I am exceedingly pleased. Small size for everyday use and carry, flexibility on light output and battery usage and excellent price for what you get! It's very hard to do better!- Hope that helps. 5Great price for a GREAT tactical light! I've always been a fan of tactical (aka ridiculously bright) flashlights, but, since it is something I don't particular "have" to have, but rather just something I have wanted, as a cool and practical tool to have handy (dim flashlights are seriously annoying) I have not felt that it's something I want to spend several hundred dollars to buy. So, I was very pleased to see this nifty fella for a very decent price.I read outside reviews from folks who actually use and and rely on various high power "tactical" flashlights, and, thanks to the experts, I settled on this brand. What sold me on this particular model (an upgrade from the highly praised PD30) was the addition of a rubberized side button for easily operating the brightness settings (and activating or deactivating the strobe and SOS modes). This seemed a much better idea than other models, which have only the single back button and a bunch of complex quarter, half, and whole pushes to access functions.Other awesome features -- it "remembers" which setting you last used, so no need to scroll through settings repeatedly, just set it where you want it, with the side button, and the back button will go right to where you left it; there are four settings for battery power savings (and the third lowest setting is PLENTY bright, and will leave a person seeing spots to look at it); you can press the back button partially for just flashing the light ("signal" use); it has (as mentioned) a strobe function, plus automatic SOS function; it's impact resistant, water proof, has a SOLID build quality, comes with a very cool carrying case, a lanyard, and extra sealing rings, and of course, the huge perk is the fact that if you WANT it to be insanely bright, the "turbo" mode, as they call it, is indeed blinding, at 315 super white lumens. This is truly an "all in one" kind of flashlight.All of this, for far FAR less than any tactical light I have ever considered buying. Yes, it costs probably more than twice the "super bright" flashlights that hardware stores sell, in the 20 to 25 dollar range, but this is easily a zillion times brighter than any regular store bought light. I mean, for example, I spent 35 bucks, last year, on a supposed "10 lumen" flashlight -- a nice unit actually -- but this baby, even at the second to lowest setting, dwarfs it, by far.So, it's worth every penny, for what I was looking for, and, in fact, is far more than I ever hoped to get, at a price that is far less than even one hundred dollars.Get the PD32 -- you won't be disappointed! 5I would love to say I love it but the range button ....no i do love it! This has become my new bedside torch.It is small and compact and has run well on one battery charge for some time.It has a good range of brightness with the lower settings being good for in the house at night and the brighter settings great for outside at night.My only issue with this and it's not a big deal but, the torch will turn back on at whatever level setting you turn it off at, which is mostly fine unless it was turned off in the brightest setting and then you go to turn it on again later and it blinds you (or at least stifles your vision because you have just turned it on after waking in the pitch black) and you go to adjust it and the toggle button is not prominent enough to do this quickly.Still a great torch, brilliant brightness for the size and money, but this small issue bugs me sometimes. If there was a slightly flattened surface where the button is or the button was easier to distinguish at night. I would give it five stars.DIt is still going on the first charge and I am used to the toggle button. great little powerful light! 5 stars !D 5Another incredible Fenix product!! Bought one for myself and one for my Brother-in law for Christmas.Amazing!! It may be a nearly perfect compact high power 2 battery torch, especially given the price point. Shape, size, functionality, all top notch. I wouldn't change a thing. Soft touch on the rear button, temporary on, full click, constant on. Four power modes switched by a button on the forward side of the unit behind the bezel. Hold for two seconds and get the strobe function. Strictly from a tactical standpoint for law enforcement or military, it would definitely make more sense to have the power level control button on the rear of the unit as a function of the main switch button, so you can change settings while holding it in the traditional manner with your thumb, while holding a handgun in the other hand. However, since I don't intend to use it this way, I like it the way it is. Most folks will use it grasping it in their palm with their thumb right where the power output level switch is located. With a small bit of practice, one could certainly operate it with the reverse tactical grip, thumb to the rear, and change power levels with your pinky finger.Extremely powerful on full high Turbo mode. I know all the companies tend to exaggerate lumen levels, so I have no idea if 315 is correct, but I can say it is damn impressive!! Look at it head on and it is not only blinding, it is actually physically painful. It rarely needs to be used in turbo mode, and it shouldn't be to preserve battery life, and bulb life for that matter. Inside an enclosed area, it's actually too much light. Distracting really.I have a PD 20 for daily carry which I absolutely adore. Very small single battery unit, VERY powerful as well. Clip it inside my right pants pocket and barely notice it. Use it every day for home renovation work. 180 lumen claim. No reason to doubt it. The PD 32 is definitely significantly brighter, but obviously twice as large length wise and would need to clip on my belt or in the holster it comes with. The PD 20 is just too small and convenient to switch over to the new one for carrying everyday. The 32 still goes with me in the car or in the toolbox, and I still love it, but if I have to choose one to have on my person, it's the PD 20 for it's size. Also may be a bit redundant, but I have an E05 on my keychain as well!! Very nice little AAA light. Don't need it too often because I usually have the other one on me, but it's handy now and then when I don't.In summary, I have nothing but positive things to say about Fenix in general. I love all the lights I have from them. Quality is first rate. I must admit, it does bother the patriotic side of me that they are made in China vs. the USA, but for the quality and the price point, I don't think you can find a better light. If Surefire had a bit more tolerable price tag, I'd probably have some of their products, but they are just too damn expensive. Well, I do buy their batteries. I've tried streamlight to save some $$ and they stink. 5Not an L4 but Good for the Money This is my first Fenix Flashlight. Prior to buying the PD32 I ran a Surefire L4 LumaMax. It was a great flashlight and worked flawlessly for 9 years. As an avid outdoors men and elk hunting guide, I used the L4 hard...really hard! Mine was stepped on by a horse, dropped off a 50' cliff, dropped out of a tree stand (4 times) and bounced around in the bed of my pickup for two straight weeks. Not to mention many other acts of cruel and unusual punishment. But recently the LED head finally burned out so I contacted Surefire to check about a replacement head. However, I received no response from customer service. Made contact a second time, but again no response. So I decided to try another brand and after much research settled on the Fenix PD32.This is a bright flashlight, but in my opinion it is not as bright as my old L4, which was rated at only 160 lumens compared to 315 for the PD32. I also believe the overall construction of my L4 was heaver and it just feels more solidly made than the PD32. Still a new L4, which has been discontinued, would costs about $190 compared to $50 or so for the PD32. So for the price I think the PD32 will be hard to beat. While the PD32 is not as bright as my old L4, it is still adequately bright. I do like the different power setting options and the bet clip seems solid. On the other, the very flimsy belt holster is be pretty much worthless for the kind of usage this light will experience. No worries, though, because the PD32 fits into my Surefire holster, which is very thick and heavy duty.So I think the real test will come at the point of durability. Only time will tell how well the PD32 will holds up after being buried in snow for 3 weeks and covered with animal blood more times then I can remember...among other things. 4Excellent EDC every day carry tool Have been looking forward to this Fenix light, and was not been let down upon receipt. The turbo brightness is amazing compared to my older Mini Maglite, which I recently read tops out at around 70 lumens. This compact beast outshines and outperforms it in other ways besides that. The mass is less (99 grams vs. 132), it's shorter by 1.5", and has a convenient clip if one so desires. It also has the hex barrel to limit rolling. The PD32's body is well-made, waterproof to 2m, and has a scratch-resistant face. The light comes with an extra tailcap tip and a pair of extra O-rings for the body. The one thing the Maglite has that this lacks is a flat tailcap profile suitable for standing on end. I have no other concerns. Other observations (all at night):The PD32's corona, at its outer edge, is brighter than the hot spot of the minimag.The PD32, aimed at a white 17' ceiling, can light a medium-size room well beyond minimum reading levelThe PD32 clearly illuminates objects 170 feet away. I haven't tested distance visibility but it's going to be substantial.Nighttime navigation on a trail is easy, and in fact turbo is probably too high. The corona is wide enough that bobbing from holding it doesn't leave the next footstep in the dark.Minor wish list: focusing ability, even lower 'low' setting, adapter for standing it upright.Overall very few issues. It's light, efficient and very bright. For around-the-house use it's excellent, and outdoors it does well also. It's not intended for search-and-rescue, but its long-throw beam is nice for nighttime walks and hikes. 5Best light ever! Affordable, but extremely high quality and BRIGHT! My favorite flashlight! I use this for work, (which is how I justify the price, low though it is compared to other similar products,) and immediately bought a new one after losing my first. All told, I've had this flashlight for 6 years, (with the one repurchase in the middle of that time,) and never had any problem with it. It's incredibly bright and compact, frequently impressing my coworkers who spent much more on much fancier, and usually bulkier, lights. It lacks a zoom, but I don't miss it. This beam can illuminate the corner of a dark room over a hundred feet away, while still being broad enough for close quarters. There is a strobe feature which I occasionally stumble across, but can never remember how to trigger it. I'm sure if I used it regularly it'd be easy enough. The included lanyard is very handy for hanging overhead, as a safety on my wrist when working at height, or for easily fishing out of a tool pouch or pocket. The belt clip is a little tight, but works great when needed. My only real criticism of the light is the weird little side button which toggles through 3 or 4 brightness levels. It can be fiddly to find by touch alone, and not easy even when you're looking at the darn thing, and I always forget which brightness level it is currently on and how many levels there are, so I always have to cycle through the levels 2 full times to zero in on what I want. A 4-step sliding switch or something would be much more intuitive. Still works great though. Also, the batteries are best purchased in bulk for the cheapest price, and then you'll never run out. I bought a $40 box 6 years ago, and still have at least a third left. 5Great portable flashlight I have purchased this item for self-defense and general tool purposes, and it is excellent in both fields. The general amount of lumens I was recommended for self defense, was to have at least 150 lumens. I wanted to go for overkill and I am not disappointed at all. I had someone use it on me at an arm s length away at night, and not only did I blink I physically recoiled from unexpected amount of light. At farther distance away with the street lamp light behind the person I could not make out any silhouette, and could only make out the bright light. And strobe wasn t really necessary for me to be disoriented and blinded, but strobe added to the effect. And the size is perfect for my pocket and makes carrying the flashlight very easy. I have carried it with me daily since getting the item.Now for the minor cons. The mode is switch by how you press the side switch, however the side switch is very hard to locate if hurried. The side switch is in this rubberish material that blends in with the rest of the flashlight if you are trying to feel it out. So I would probably never get to the strobe mode if I had to use it for self defense. Which once again should be fine since the brightest mode is more than enough for my needs.Which reminds me, there are four brightness modes. Lowest which is almost uselessly low but may work if you wake in the middle of the night, lower and higher middle settings are so close in brightness to one another that they may as well be one, then the brightest setting which is wonderfully bright and can light a whole room to a visible level. Then there is the strobe mode and SOS, but strobe takes about 3 seconds to turn on, which makes it useless for self defense. SOS turns on if you keep holding, but it took me few tries to figure that one out.It s a wonderful flashlight overall and I have already dropped it twice while it was on and the flashlight isn t damaged one bit. Very happy with this item. 5

Only time will tell how well the PD32 will holds up after being buried in snow for 3 weeks and covered with animal blood more times then I can remember...among other things. 4Excellent EDC every day carry tool Have been looking forward to this Fenix light, and was not been let down upon receipt. The turbo brightness is amazing compared to my older Mini Maglite, which I recently read tops out at around 70 lumens. This compact beast outshines and outperforms it in other ways besides that. The mass is less (99 grams vs. 132), it's shorter by 1.5", and has a convenient clip if one so desires. It also has the hex barrel to limit rolling. The PD32's body is well-made, waterproof to 2m, and has a scratch-resistant face. The light comes with an extra tailcap tip and a pair of extra O-rings for the body. The one thing the Maglite has that this lacks is a flat tailcap profile suitable for standing on end. I have no other concerns. Other observations (all at night):The PD32's corona, at its outer edge, is brighter than the hot spot of the minimag.The PD32, aimed at a white 17' ceiling, can light a medium-size room well beyond minimum reading levelThe PD32 clearly illuminates objects 170 feet away. I haven't tested distance visibility but it's going to be substantial.Nighttime navigation on a trail is easy, and in fact turbo is probably too high. The corona is wide enough that bobbing from holding it doesn't leave the next footstep in the dark.Minor wish list: focusing ability, even lower 'low' setting, adapter for standing it upright.Overall very few issues. It's light, efficient and very bright. For around-the-house use it's excellent, and outdoors it does well also. It's not intended for search-and-rescue, but its long-throw beam is nice for nighttime walks and hikes. 5Best light ever! Affordable, but extremely high quality and BRIGHT! My favorite flashlight! I use this for work, (which is how I justify the price, low though it is compared to other similar products,) and immediately bought a new one after losing my first. All told, I've had this flashlight for 6 years, (with the one repurchase in the middle of that time,) and never had any problem with it. It's incredibly bright and compact, frequently impressing my coworkers who spent much more on much fancier, and usually bulkier, lights. It lacks a zoom, but I don't miss it. This beam can illuminate the corner of a dark room over a hundred feet away, while still being broad enough for close quarters. There is a strobe feature which I occasionally stumble across, but can never remember how to trigger it. I'm sure if I used it regularly it'd be easy enough. The included lanyard is very handy for hanging overhead, as a safety on my wrist when working at height, or for easily fishing out of a tool pouch or pocket. The belt clip is a little tight, but works great when needed. My only real criticism of the light is the weird little side button which toggles through 3 or 4 brightness levels. It can be fiddly to find by touch alone, and not easy even when you're looking at the darn thing, and I always forget which brightness level it is currently on and how many levels there are, so I always have to cycle through the levels 2 full times to zero in on what I want. A 4-step sliding switch or something would be much more intuitive. Still works great though. Also, the batteries are best purchased in bulk for the cheapest price, and then you'll never run out. I bought a $40 box 6 years ago, and still have at least a third left. 5Great portable flashlight I have purchased this item for self-defense and general tool purposes, and it is excellent in both fields. The general amount of lumens I was recommended for self defense, was to have at least 150 lumens. I wanted to go for overkill and I am not disappointed at all. I had someone use it on me at an arm s length away at night, and not only did I blink I physically recoiled from unexpected amount of light. At farther distance away with the street lamp light behind the person I could not make out any silhouette, and could only make out the bright light. And strobe wasn t really necessary for me to be disoriented and blinded, but strobe added to the effect. And the size is perfect for my pocket and makes carrying the flashlight very easy. I have carried it with me daily since getting the item.Now for the minor cons. The mode is switch by how you press the side switch, however the side switch is very hard to locate if hurried. The side switch is in this rubberish material that blends in with the rest of the flashlight if you are trying to feel it out. So I would probably never get to the strobe mode if I had to use it for self defense. Which once again should be fine since the brightest mode is more than enough for my needs.Which reminds me, there are four brightness modes. Lowest which is almost uselessly low but may work if you wake in the middle of the night, lower and higher middle settings are so close in brightness to one another that they may as well be one, then the brightest setting which is wonderfully bright and can light a whole room to a visible level. Then there is the strobe mode and SOS, but strobe takes about 3 seconds to turn on, which makes it useless for self defense. SOS turns on if you keep holding, but it took me few tries to figure that one out.It s a wonderful flashlight overall and I have already dropped it twice while it was on and the flashlight isn t damaged one bit. Very happy with this item. 5
