The Fenix PD22 flashlight – small enough to fit in your pocket, bright enough to burn a hole in your eyes.

That’s what my parents told me about looking at the sun when I was a kid.  What did I do?  I looked at the sun.  Of course it hurt, but about the hole in my eyes, that didn’t happen.

You can find this flashlight online for buying at places like Amazon where you can typically get a better price then you would find offline even considering the cost of shipping.

Perfect little light for those that want to pack a punch, so to speak, with a small but powerfully bright flashlight.

The Fenix PD22 is a powerful, bright flashlight that packs a lot of punch for its size. Measuring just 3.5 inches with a diameter of 0.85 inches and weighing less than 44 grams without the battery, this flashlight delivers up to 190 lumens in turbo mode. What is turbo mode? Well, nothing to do with a car engine and everything to do with the highest mode possible for this light. Speaking of output, the PD22 has four general modes and 2 other modes. There is the highest Turbo mode which goes for up to two hours, low is a dim 8 lumens that goes for 97 hours, mid s 46 lumens for 10 hours, and high is 95 lumens for about 4.5 hours. Additionally the full strobe mode is at 190 lumens while the SOS mode is 46 lumens. The light throw is slightly over 100 meters, 300+ feet.

There is a handy tail cap switch that is smart. To activate the light for just a moment, press the tail cap switch lightly. The light will come on briefly. Pressing the switch completely will turn the flashlight on and lock it on. To cycle through the modes, there is a switch on the side that sends you through Turbo - Low - Mid - High. Holding the side modes switch for one second gets the light into Strobe mode, three seconds puts the light into the lower lumen SOS mode. Seems that all high quality flashlights work in a similar fashion. This flashlight has a bit of "brains". In other words, when you turn the light back on it will begin operating in the general mode. Fenix is fairly specific about the battery to use. They recommend a non-rechargeable Lithium CR123A 3V battery and not the higher voltage Li-ion 16340 3.7V or the Litium Iron Phospate 16340 3.2V battery. Not sure what exactly happens if you were to use one of the banned batteries, but the warning is that "it will propably casue damage to the flashlight".

You may be surprised to know that this is IPX-8 certified to be waterproof to 2 meters. One person who provided feedback on the flashlight indirectly provided this information by saying that his flashlight mistakenly went through a wash machine and survived. Knowing that the flashlight is waterproof should tell you that you will want to occasionally change the O-ring.

Finally, if you do purchase this flashlight, realize that this is a compact flashlight that takes just one battery and has a handy pocket clip that won't do a tailstand. Get it now while it is available.
