The Best Fenix Lights for Everyday Carry

Pocket-sized everyday carry lights are there for you, whether you need a light while walking the dog, find a lost item under a car seat, or in case of an emergency.

The Fenix E03R V2.0 Keychain Flashlight is one of our smallest lights, but don’t let the compact size fool you! It’s surprisingly bright, throwing 500 lumens an incredible 295 ft (90 m). Smaller than a key fob, the E03R V2.0 has seven different lighting modes, including a red flashing light for emergencies.
