[MEC] Fenix PD35 Flashlight - $69 clearance

Well reviewed (but not the newest model) Fenix PD35 Flashlight for $69 with free shipping through April 25th. Though add $5 MEC membership for those who don't have one.

Looks like it's a reasonable price given everywhere else I look it is selling for >$90?

Now could anyone recommend a good (cheap) battery/charger for this?

This is a pretty good light. There's higher lumen lights for less money, but not with good brand reputations like Fenix.

Just FYI, here's a comparable Olight on as a lightning deal: Olight M1X striker.

EBL makes some good batteries and chargers - for sale on Amazon. Not the very cheapest, but at least you get the real mah-rating you pay for.

good light but I wish it had a moonlight mode. In the dark, you want a sub 1 lumen mode to not mess up your night vision, It has 5 levels so it would have been easy to assign a moonlight mode

the new ones have a metal side switch, I think the rubber ones will crack or split eventually.

Amazing light. I highly recommend it but only if you have the right batteries and charge for it already.
Pro tip - If you can't stop thinking about it ....BUY IT !

Anyone got a suggestion for something comparable but zoomable sold in Canada? I also need a couple 18650s, but I don't wanna wait months to get it all.

You can get 18650s at any vape shop.

I'd prefer the moonlight mode was first in the order, so I don't have to turn on a 1000 lumen spotlight to cycle over to the night-vision-protecting mode.
Not sure if this one has moonlight mode but it has the red halo. It is Bushnell brand (dont know much about it) but sold at Sail and they seem to have many flashlights on sale as well.

Flashlights knock offs are a dime a dozen and very wildly in terms of quality and actual light out put. Felix makes solid stuff. I have one along with some cheap ones and frankly the cheap ones suck. I walk in the evening in pitch black often. Cheap lights well do a cheap job. A solid flashlight I can spot eyes of deer or wolves from 100m away easy.

Anyways also 18650 batteries very as well. Don’t think you’ll just buy anyone and your good like an AA battery. They are not all the same.

I have a few Felix batteries and like them. I bought some batteries off amazon from a reputable vendor. They did not work and not what wa promised. Wasted loads of my time trying to correct it. Grrr.

If you want a flashlight to go down stairs when power is out or see under the couch buy one from gear best. If you want one that works in -20 and has a good throw etc buy one of these or comparable.

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

For quality 18650's take apart old laptop batteries, test them all and keep whatever's still good.

How to test them? I have a decent charger with a display that shows voltage, would just trying to charge them be a sufficient test? Aren't the ones inside battery packs flat on both ends with metal soldered on?

I have an E12, nice flashlight, very compact and a single AA is a plus for me. Suits my urban needs.

I like how every time you turn it on, it starts at low, and some half-presses increases the brightness, and a full press for off. Much better than those costco flashlights that alternate between 3 levels & flashing regardless of half or full press.
