    I’ve had a few E12’s…this is the best one yet. The bezel is a real nice touch, looks classy. Quality build and feels a bit heavy for a single AA. Love it. Eneloop (Pro) is a real nice battery for this light. 14500’s work too. Clicky is total ASMR. (ditto for the E20 w/ two AA’s) If Fenix ever makes these E’s with attractive metals get out the wallet !!

    A great Little light, I use ion batteries mostly, but I love to have the option of a back up standard AA. I like that the first click is a very low light, most of my lights start in the brightest setting.
    I bought two😊

    Don’t like the three modes,would have been happy with the old E12 with one mode at 160 lumens. Otherwise the quality is awesome
