Default Flashlight Review, *Fenix E20

I just received the Fenix E20 from 4sevens.com.

Shipping is the usual fast 3 days to Socal.

Price is excellent $34.96.

Uses common 2AA batteries. Nimh, Alkalines and Eneloops. The run time on my light was 3.24 hours with Duracell Nimh batteries. I got a very flat rate of dicharge but after 3.24 hours the battery dropped off rapidly. 4sevens.com lists 78 minutes with Duracell Alkalines. 160 minutes with Eneloops.

The Fenix E20 uses a Cree XRE Q2. The tint on my light is on the warm side. The beam is slightly off-centered.

The E20 uses a SMO reflector. My light has a very slight Cree Ring.

Uses and adjustable head which goes from a tight focus to a wide focus. The threads are very smooth and tight. My o-rings came lubed. The lens bezel assembly can be removed.

The finish is Type III Hard Anodize Black. There is no color mis-match and no flaws. The knurling is excellent, it gives a very nice grip. I give the grade A+.

The fit is excellent. Threads are smooth. O-rings came lubed. I give the grade A+.

Uses a forward clickie. Can be locked out by turning the rear switch cover counter-clockwise just a little. The rear rubber cover protrudes 2.20mm. No tail standing.






Comes with a Cree module cover, 2 o-rings, rear rubber boot cover and lanyard.









Uses a SMO reflector and a Cree XRE Q2.





Lens bezel assembly can be removed.

Pros

Price $34.96 shipped.

Excellent finish, Type III Hard Anodize. Knurling.

Excellent fit, smooth tight threads.

Forward clickie.

Uses common AA batteries.

Good beam tint, warm no blue noted.

O-rings came lubed.


Cons

No Cree XRE Q5.

Forward clickie protrudes, cannot tail stand.

No holster.

Hot spot slightly off-centered.


_____________________


A great light for the price! I think it will make an affodable gift for someone.

I wish the Fenix E20 would come out with a "Premium Version". Use a Creee Q5. It would throw further and be brighter. Come with a holster. I would pay extra for one.

Uses common AA batteries.

I was very surprised with the run time using Duracell 2650 Rechargeable Nimh AA's, 3.24 hours. A very flat discharge rate.

The fit and finish is very top rated IMO for it's price.

I can't wait for the Olive color version. It will soon be added to my colletion.

A+
