The Fenix flashlights are one of the most innovative and high quality lights available to consumers these days. The men that designed and produced these flashlights in particular were dissatisfied with the bulk of the standard inferior tools available to them at the time. In seeking help to produce the best product they could they organized a group of professional engineers in the fields of metal machining, electronics and product design and together they established FenixLight Limited!
The union between this craftsmanship helped to create Fenix's legendary flashlights which are held in the highest respect world-wide. Since it's origination, FenixLight Limited produced an amazing product line from the first L1 to the current multi-level processor controlled lights. In fact, in 2005, the L1 in particular was voted one of the most advanced flashlights by its users and the media. The L1 successfully incorporated a brilliant beam, a constant current modular electrical circuit and low operational costs all in a really compact design, a first in the industry. Fenix was the first mass manufacturer to bring such a quality single AA cell Luxeon LED flashlight to the marketplace. The foundation of the L1 created a niche marketplace and started to really attract people's attention!
The Fenix L-series flashlight was the first standard high-end flashlight. The L0 and L1 versions were recognized as a milestone in the evolution of high-end flashlights, and won many honors and praise.
The L0 version is a really concise flashlight, small enough to connect to your key chain and power-driven by a single AAA battery.
The L1 version is a concise pocket flashlight, with a tail interchange and power-driven by a single AA battery.
The L2 version is fundamentally a two-celled L1, by using two cells, the L2 runs brighter with a more expanded run time.
In 2006 Fenix launched the LoD Cree Edition which was the first mass-produced AAA powered LED Flashlight using the super efficient Cree emitter. The LoD is a proficient six level light but it's small enough to clip onto a key chain! And while Fenix continues to deliver these high powered, high quality flashlights, they keep on sticking with their original slogan; Fenix Flashlight, Sunshine In Your Pocket!
This company wants to continue to bring you flashlights as useful and reliable as the sun itself! From the reviews I found online, they seem very able and ready to keep up with this mantra. Really if you want the best flashlight available, buy a Fenix, you won't regret it!
