Fenix LD22 Flashlight

Realistically everyone needs a good flashlight in their lives.  The question always comes down to which one is best for each person’s needs.  Just{elation} came across a great multi-use flashlight, the Fenix LD22.

The Fenix brand is quickly making it’s mark on the flashlight connoisseur scene.  They are durable to various IPX standards, all clearly marked on the box they arrive in.  The LD22 is a great smaller torch, throwing out a maximum of 190 lumens with the power of 2 “AA” batteries.  The flashlight sports 4 brightness levels (noted as 3, 42, 92, 190 lumen settings), a strobe mode, and an SOS mode, all cycled through using the side mounted mode switch.  The torch is turned on/off through the power button on the back end of the flashlight, a soft press illuminates things temporarily, while a positive click will allow the LD22 to stay lit for a maximum runtime of 110 hours.

The LED used in the Fenix LD22 is the CREE XP-G (R) LED, noted for it’s 50,000 hour lifespan.  It shines through a toughened glass lens with anti-reflective coatings to help provide a smooth light spectrum.  In real testing, the light had a distinct inner circle which was it’s brightest point, and a smoothly even lit outer circle beam.  The LED provided a nice white light, almost imitating a daylight situation.

All of this is enclosed in a case packed with IPX8 standards, indicating that it can withstand a dunk in 2 meters of water without any problems.  Fenix states that a 1 meter drop won’t bother the light, all protected by the aircraft grade aluminum.  The casing is a matte black Type III Hard Anodized aluminum case, designed with a removable or reversible clip that can hang the light from the top or bottom of the LD22.  The LD22 is 6.14″ (156mm) in length and .846″ (21.5mm) in diameter, weighing in at 50 grams without batteries.

So it starts, a Just{elation} long term review on the Fenix LD22!  Updates given at 1, 2, 4, 6, and 12 months on the durability and usability of the LD22.
