1. You have to unscrew the head more than half way off for the light to actually turn off. Any less and pressing the head can cause the light to turn on (this is caused by the lack of a sprung battery compartment). The light has come apart a few times in my pocket because of this.
2. As a consequence of (1), I *highly* doubt the waterproof claim holds when the light is in the off position (while on, there is indeed a tight seal). Seeing as the light will spend most of its time off (and vulnerable to foreign matter and water), I don't think I can trust the waterproof claim.
3. The battery compartment lacks a spring. This causes uneven contact between the battery and head which is noticeable when you try to turn on the light/change modes: the battery can bounce around just enough to make and break contact multiple times, thus cycling the mode. Very frustrating.
This was a very disappointing purchase coming from the PD32 (my first Fenix light, which is just 100% perfect). That will not discourage me from buying Fenix again - I'll just have to stay away from their twisty switches.
Suggestion for Fenix: Implement a twisty switch the way the Maglite Solitaire does it. When the switch is twisted close, the light is OFF. To turn ON the light, you untwist the head. (So, the opposite of what it is now)
All of these flashlights were brighter, lighter and smaller than my vintage E1. The one I setled on for EDC was the 4Sevens Mini 123 R5 Edition.
Since I won't be writing three entirely different reviews, let me tell you what I like and dislike in a EDC light:
* It has to be something I always have with me - thus the term EDC.
* It has to fit on a key chain (something that my SureFire E1 did begrudgingly)
* It has to be small, light and have at least low, medium and high settings
* It is preferable to have a dedicated on-off switch to a twist-on switch. This is because I don't want the light to turn on accidentally and not be ready when I need it.
Much less important to me are things like strobe, SOS, beacon, and so on because of two reasons: first they are invariably difficult to activate (strobe coming to mind as the most useless in a tactical situation) and second, the additional weight and cost isn't justified since it's unlikely I'll ever use them. Follow me on this: is this the primary use as a flashlight or a signalling device? For me it's simple: If it's dark, I want light and I want that light to be on my person.
In order from most to least preferred for EDC, the following:
#1 - 4Sevens Mini 123 R5 Edition
It's small, lightweight, bright, inexpensive enough and fits on my key chain. It has more than the three brightness modes I require and despite the twist-on activation was the best suited to my needs. This light turn on low, then medium, then high. This means that you have a day or more to notice your light has been accidentally turned-on.
#2 - Fenix Compact 140 Lumen Flashlight
All of the above and 25% less expensive than the 4Sevens. Same twist-on activation BUT this one turns on in high-output first - cycling from high to medium to low. The problem here is that accidental activation will discharge a battery in an hour and I might miss it -- unless of course I felt my pocket getting hot. I deemed this light unsuitable for my purposes and gifted it away. :)
#3 - Fenix PD20 CREE Q5 Mini LED Flashlight, Black, 180 Lumens, Uses 1 X CR123A Battery
This light has a positive end-cap on/off switch and is the brightest, best quality and most expensive of all. The light is simply too large for EDC on a key chain. It is about 50% larger than the other two lights. It's also considerably heavier. This light I carry in my laptop bag where an ounce or two doesn't make much difference.
On the subject of twist-on lights I don't like them for several reasons: accidental activation, wear on the o-ring and wear on the threads will all shorten the lifespan.
As far as being made in China or the USA goes for warranty purposes, I just don't care. If the light works when I get it then I'm good. If it fails, I'll buy another. I'm not going to ship a low-priced flashlight back to China for warranty service.
