  • Metal side switch for output selection
  • Made of durable high-strength and oxidation-resistant 6061 aluminum
  • Premium type HAIII hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish

The tail switch is the tactical switch, and the side switch is the functional switch.


Slightly tap the tactical switch to momentarily turn on the light, release it the light will go out.
Fully press
Fully press the tactical switch to constantly turn on the light, press once again to turn off the light.

Output Selection

With the light switched on, single click the functional switch to cycle through Eco→Low→Med→High→Turbo.


With the light switched on, press and hold the functional switch for 0.5 seconds to enter strobe, click once again to return back to General mode.

Boot-up Battery Level Indication

Each time the light is turned on, the battery level indicator will automatically display the battery status for 3 seconds.
Green constant on: saturated
Green flashes: sufficient
Red constant on: poor
Red flashes: critical
Note: This only works on rechargeable LI-ion 18650 battery.

Battery Replacement

Unscrew the tail cap to insert the battery with the anode side (+) towards the light head, then screw the tail cap back on.

Low-voltage Warning

When the voltage level drops below 3V, the flashlight is programmed to downshift to a lower brightness level until Eco output is reached. When this happens in Eco output mode, the battery level indicator will display red and the flashlight blinks every three seconds to remind you to replace the battery. To ensure normal use, the flashlight will work until the battery runs out or
the battery over-discharging protection activates. Note: This only works on rechargeable LI-ion 18650 battery.

Intelligent Memory Circuit

The light memorizes the last selected brightness level on General mode. When turned on again the previously used brightness level will be recalled.

Intelligent Protection

The light will accumulate a lot of heat when it is working at Turbo mode. When the light is overheated up to 65°C or above, the flashlight will automatically step down a few lumens to reduce the temperature; when the temperature is lower than 65°C, the output will gradually return to Turbo output level.

Usage and Maintenance

  • Disassembling the sealed head can cause damage to the light and will void the warranty.
  • Fenix recommends using an excellent quality battery.
  • If the light will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery, or the light could be damaged by electrolyte leakage or battery explosion.
  • Unscrew the tail cap half a turn or take out the battery to prevent accidental activation during storage or transportation.
  • Long-term use can result in O-ring wear. To maintain a proper water seal, replace the ring with an approved spare.
  • Periodic cleaning of the battery contacts improves the lamp’s performance as dirty contacts may cause the lamp to flicker, shine intermittently or even fail to illuminate for the following reasons:
    • A: The battery needs replacing.
      Solution: Replace battery (Ensure battery is inserted according to the manufacturer’s specifications).
    • B: The threads, PCB board contact or other contacts are dirty.
      Solution: Clean the contact points with a cotton swab soaked in rubbing alcohol.

If the above methods don’t work, please contact your authorized distributor.


This flashlight is a high-intensity lighting device capable of causing eye damage to the user or others. Avoid shining the flashlight directly into anyone’s eyes.

    Awesome flashlight. Nice solid feel and easy to operate.

  3. David E. Roy, Ph.D. (verified owner)

    Have owned a PD version of Fenix for several years. What wore out in both units was the on-off switch; it stopped being possible to keep them on. So, I bought two of this model and love the upgrades: more levels of brightness, the switch that indicates the battery strength. The placement switch for adjusting the intensity has been greatly improved, making it easy to find both by feel and by size and shape (before it was gray and hard to locate in a hurry). And it is brighter than before. I have a dozen or so batteries that I keep recharged so the units are available 24/7.

    Bright intuitive flashlight without unwanted frills. Half the price and so far double the battery life of my other flashlights. The only negative is having to open and unseal the flashlight due to the female charging port on the side of the battery.

  9. Luther (verified owner)

    Hands down the best flashlight I’ve owned. Crazy bright. Definitely like the 4 light settings as well as the red light option with flashing capabilities. Lightweight, very strong and extremely well made. The rechargeable battery is really nice as to length of holding a charge. Battery indicator status on the the barrel of the flashlight is also a nice feature. The drawback is that for the rechargeable battery there is no mini USB charging cable nor does the company offer one as an accessory, which does seem very strange and extremely inconsistent with the quality of products they offer. I would hope that they will correct this small but irritating short sightedness

    I use my flashlight in construction. I have dropped it several times and it works perfectly. My coworkers are impressed by the brightness and the multiple settings. The battery is still going after 2 weeks of use. This is the only flashlight I will buy from now on.

    I purchased this item based on a review on the Shooting Illustrated website. Delivery was timely and prompt. The light itself works great. It is 5 inches long and 1 inch in diameter, it comes with a nylon case, secured by Velcro tabs. The on / off switch is located on the rear base of the light. The switch for power settings is illuminated on the side of the light but does not stay illuminated, it switches off after after a few seconds. Each power setting works exceptionally well, and even on low power is bright enough for light work. Full power is very bright at 1,000 lumens.

    The USB battery is a good feature but needs to come with a cable. I was lucky to find one that fit. I have not tested how long the power will last but plan to do so. Aside from including a usb cable. The power switch should be illuminated by at least a glow in the dark ring so as not to have to search for the power setting switch.

    Otherwise, this was good purchase and included a 20% coupon when signing up for the Fenix email.

    • Dianne

      We are glad you like the light! Please note that the illumination on the side switch is not meant to be a switch illuminator. It is a boot up battery level indicator. Each time the light is turned on, the battery level indicator will automatically display the battery status for 3 seconds.

    I am a 3rd shift DOT fleet mechanic and rely on my PD 35 every day. Over the past year and a half I have exposed this light to diesel fuel, dirty motor oil, road salt, brine, calcium, antifreeze, hydraulic oil, etc… It even fell off the back of a dumptruck at 35mph and I recovered it in the berm. The rubber button looks just as new as the day I got it and the battery life is impressive. This light is a real workhorse and it outperforms my gov issued Streamlight Stinger.

    Works as desired. Lightweight and feels good in the hand. Have not hard in any rough elements to test the durability.
    The holder it comes with is pretty cheap though. For a high end flashlight, I would have liked to see a holder that looks even as nice or a lot more rugged.

    I am enjoying using this light as my EDC and it has not let me down yet. i do recommend that you read closely so you know to also buy the batteries. i didn’t and it was a cost i wasn’t prepared for. all in all, it’s a good purchase, but including just one battery would make this a perfect purchase.

    I owned the PD35 Tac before this 2.0 version and I loved both. They are built tough and are of high quality. Solid feel in the hand and well crafted. Visually it is great looking and the light beam is very, very bright! The original PD35 Tac was my go to when Hurricane Michael hit. Excellent visibility and long lasting charge helped me when we didnt have power for weeks. Looking forward to purchasing the PD36R soon!

  43. Shawn Underwood (verified owner)

    I just bought the Fenix PD35 V2.0 and available 18650 ARB-L18-3500U battery directly from Fenix last week. I bought it because it’s widely used and recommended amongst backpackers and hikers world wide. I backpack in the backcountry of Utah/Arizona a ton and needed a small, lightweight flashlight that packs a punch! This thing turns night into day with a push of a button! The quality of this light is great! It’s very well made and waterproof. You won’t find another product in it’s class thats this powerful, lightweight with this much run time. My next purchase is going to be the Fenix TK47UE. You’ve made a customer for life! Thank you!

    Product is great, our company uses them for patch/drywall work to spot imperfections in the drywall/mudding process. These are the go-to flashlight. My only problem is with the shipping. I was supposed to receive free 3 day shipping and the shipping time was more like 5-7 days.

  65. John (verified owner)

    Ok, so far so good. I bought this light because I was destroying cheaper, made in China LED 18650 powered flashlights that I would destroy in short order. I have only used the light 2 weeks in this harsh environment, so time will tell on longevity. I bought this primarily because of the warranty and the idea that if/when it dies, fenix will stand behind their product.

    Initial (2 weeks) impressions:

    First thing to be aware of, you need button top 18650 batteries. The positive pin will not make contact with a flat top. I wish I had known up front, because I ended up having to make a second order so that I actually had batteries that would work with the light.

    It’s nice and bright. I can notice a difference in the brightness level compared to what I had been using, but the difference is not nessicarily night and day. It’s certainly bright enough that I am not disappointed with the purchase.

    The build quality is on point. The threads are nice and buttery feeling. When the oring is engaging, it gives a little resistance letting you know the seal is being made, but not so much resistance that you are afraid that you will RIP the rubber with normal use. It comes with a few spare parts including new seals and button boot for when those consumable parts wear out.

    The battery seems to last a good long time compared to how much light it produces, and it let’s you know when it is getting low, which is nice. It lasts a little longer than the Chinese lights I was using, which is pretty cool. The cricut board does seem to be more efficient with the power you feed it.

    Switching between modes with a separate button is great, allowing a soft press for light when you don’t need it on for a long time.

    The lense has so far not been dulled or hazed by the chemicals it has been exposed to which includes petroleum products (I work on a drilling rig).

    The pocket clip is nice and tight….which is great because a loose clip may as well not even be there in my opinion.

    I decided not to give it 5 out of 5 simply because 1) it will not take flat top batteries and 2) warranty claim procedure has yet to be determined……but who knows? Maybe this light will actually survive the demanding job I put it to? The other lights I have been using had a 50% chance of lasting 2 weeks at my worksite and most of the time the lense was affected by the end of 2 weeks where this one still looks and feel practically new, so I’m hopeful 🙂

    I would definitely reccomend this to a friend (and have already). The price point is very impressive all things considered (warranty, spare parts, brightness, build quality, ect).

  66. Ronald Holland (verified owner)

    This is my second PD35. The side switch is an improvement over the old rubber rectangle, but if it had a hard/raised edge it would be easier to feel. I left the pocket clip on even though I don’t use it so I could use it as a guide to find the side switch.

    This is used as a house light, not usually carried and I need to use brightness 2 or 3 to find things with, but 5 to see out in the yard.

  70. Nathan (verified owner)

    Great quality flashlight! Throws a serious beam and feels good in the hand.

  71. Tom Berg (verified owner)

    I thought it focuses, I like the light, it’s my new everyday carry.

  72. Robert V. (verified owner)

    So far, so good. The spot beam is incredibly defined and symmetric. So much so that while the beam is pointed at a wall, you don’t notice that you’re turning the flashlight around and around. Great, tight symmetry! The periphery flood is defined with no spill. It, too, is perfectly symmetric.

    The beam throw is the more impressive, though. It throws a beam even on the low setting—50 lumens—that just pierces the night! I’ve beamed trees 50 to 60 meters away with discernible clarity.

    The holster is surprisingly durable and well built. It’s not heavy duty, but it is well thought out. I wear it with a small carabiner on my jeans belt loop. It does fine for everyday carrying; I use it to inspect.

    The finish is also very scratch resistant. I use Lux Pro flashlights a lot, too, but I prefer these because of their finishes—far superior in terms of durability.

    Arrived on time , shipping was reasonable. Like that I got a nice discount as first time buyer. Fenix Light nice, well made very bright easy controls. Haven’t used it long enough to comment on battery life but expect it to live up to what is advertised. Very pleased would recommend this to anyone wanting a tactical flashlight.

  74. Nick

    First off let me say that I have had my first PD35 (version 1) flashlight since Fenix released them a while back. It has worked absolutely flawlessly. I work in a very tough environment and this flashlight gets absolutely beaten to hell every single day and it still carries on like a champion. I still have my V1 and ended up receiving the V2 as a Christmas present.
    The reason I give this review 4 stars is because somehow with the V2 update, the flashlight’s cone has become more than 50% smaller than the Version 1. Might not be a problem for many (if any) people but it is a little disappointing. The V2 has been relegated to staying at home to find things in my workshops drawers due to this change.
    It might sound silly but the V1 cone was perfect for my line of work and lit up most areas well, the V2 is technically brighter (but I almost never use the max lumen setting due to how quick the battery will drain) but now requires a lot more effort to become aware of everything in my immediate area due to having a lesser cone/splash.

  80. Brent (verified owner)

    Pros: Small, powerful, well made, multi-function, battery level indicator, crystal clear lens, momentary on, remembers last power setting, and rugged.

    Con: Primary on/off switch extends farther than the bottom of the flashlight which allows the flashlight being turned on unintentionally. For example, when in the flashlight holder and mounted on a belt the flashlight can be activated by the seat belt latch. I’m looking for a holder that will prevent the accidental activation of the light.

    Incredible flashlight. Extremely bright and nice to have the different levels of brightness. I probably should have opted for both instead of one, to have the rechargeable feature but i’ll just use the rechargeable one to charge both batteries. It’s amazing for such a small flashlight to have the power it has.

  90. R. R. RUTTER (verified owner)

    The operating time, although accumulative, is by far, the best I have come by. I had a buddy who borrowed my TK35 for some “under house work” and when he brought it back, he was worried and sorrowful. He had left it on the top of his motor vehicle, and it fell off doing 70mph down a bypass, then run over by a semi. THE LIGHT STILL WORKED FLAWLESSLY, but had taken an awful beating and the astetics were deplorable. I had rarely used the life, and it was my “primary security torch” due to its terrific throw and unbelievable beam spread. I had the light for 4 years. He offered to purchase it from me, and I told him what I had paid, figuring I would just purchase a new one. SURPRISE!!! The original TK35 has been discontinued, and the closest TK to it had practically doubled in price! I ordered a PD35 2.0, and it arrived box open, with a missing boot and missing extra O ring. A quick call to customer service, and I expect to see the rest of my light in a day or two. EVERYONE wants to see it, and now I see it’s “out of stock.” I have been offered more than the cost of the light “after 3 days of receipt! No selling this one; I can only hope that I can get a TK35 ultimate edition for Christmas, “with enough subliminal messages to the wife and daughters. I have a total of 4 PD35’s,a PD32UE, and an 1800 lumen light I discovered was a bicycle light, but works wonders in the farmland behind our oasis…slobbering just thinking about what may be in the near future!

    Great candle as we electricians call flashlights. Good light and brightness output and the side switch makes it easy to flip through the modes. Will be making a second purchase in the future.

  94. Tim D. (verified owner)

    Mode changes on both my PD-35s can be flaky. After r8nn9mg strobe, intensity would not change until I held down the button for quite a long time. Otherwise good, but it’s not a Surefire, that’s for certain . . . (but not the same $$$ either . . .)

      Switching between strobe and general modes does take a couple of seconds holding the switch. In strobe, tapping the mode switch changes between SOS and strobe. If the switches aren’t working properly, please contact our warranty department to see if they can help determine if there is a problem with your switches.

  96. Brian Taylor (verified owner)

    I did a lot of research on many other lights in its class through other manufacturers. It has exceeded all of my expectations so far. I’m a commercial field service technician so I needed a durable light with the proper lumen values available along with a tactical trigger. I have put the waterproof rating to the test as well. Lastly, I have been very impressed with the battery life. I usually change batteries every few days, and I use it the vast majority of the day every day. I’m extremely satisfied with my purchase. If I ever misplaced it, I would immediately purchase another one.

  99. Robert V (verified owner)

    Owned a V1 prior and the V2 has better functions like battery charge indicator on the light to say the least. However the batteries are not compatible as the V2 requires button top 18650 batteries. Otherwise 5 / 5 from me

    This is an excellent flashlight. The low power is perfect for close up inside the house or in a smaller area and the five different levels that are available on the switch work very well in transitioning to the high 1000 lm power. It is very well-made and solid and feels as if it will last a long time . My brother who lives on the golf course got out his tactical light and we aimed it down on the golf course at a shack that was about 400 yards away. He had a little box of a light that went out to the distance and mine illuminated the entire shack with ease at a much brighter level than his. I also am very please with the emergency feature of a strobe light because I do a lot of backcountry hiking by myself.

    I own more than 10 Fenix lights and I’ve used an abused all of them. This replaced my PD32 2016 which had replaced my PD35 V2.0. long story short, this light is perfect for EDC and meets every requirement I could think of for its use in the field. I work in dress clothes everyday and you won’t find me without this light in my back pocket and in my breast pocket out in the woods. Match it up with a 3500 USB rechargeable 18650 and you’ve got a powerhouse in your hands. I recommend this light to all of my friends in military and law enforcement as well as all of my hunting buddies.

  109. Wayne Grimes (verified owner)

    In my opinion it’s the best little flashlight on the market.
    I own an HVAC company, my flashlight and multipurpose tool are with me at all times.
    The flashlight is incredibly with the amount of light it puts out as well as the distance.
    I have purchased three so far, the size is also perfect it’s not big and bulky.
    I have shown friends the light power and the response from them was, it looked like the light that comes from a police helicopter.
    It’s even strong in area’s that are somewhat lit up with light.

    Happy customer.

    Extremely well made. i do like the idea of having 2 controls. separate on off and light intensity. non rolling design prevents it from leaving your work table. battery life indicator is a plus.

    Excellent light, high functioning and a great tactical or work torch. Love it!

  121. Nicholas A. (verified owner)

    Great device, beautiful beam and feels very solid. Very happy with the purchase and will be buying more Fenix.


    Very obviously a lot of work went into the reflective housing design and the led chip location. The beam pattern is excellent imo.
    The light output is also excellent. Combined with fenix 3500mah batteries this flashlight is quiet impressive.

    My only gripe is the combo tail cap and side switch. Would be really nice if the tail cap could change light modes. With practice you can use the light with 1 hand – pinky on side switch. But it requires thought because the human pinky does not close up and down like the index finger or thumb. Anotomically the pinky closes at an angle toward the inside wrist. This makes you really have to concentrate or at least think about your actions one handed with thumb on tail cap.

    I also wish there was a programming pattern to remove sos, or unneeded light modes.

    Overall at close to 5oz (with battery), it’s a little thick to edc. Still an amazing light!

  123. William W. (verified owner)

    Great build and excellent brightness. Comfortable to hold.

    Couldn’t be happier with this new light. After being left in the dark a time or two I’m pretty skittish about lights but my Fenix has been bomb proof and being able to change settings with a second button is wonderful. Now if they would just drop the strobe function this would be the world’s best flashlight. More so than it already is!

    This is a great compact flashlight for daily use- I work in pest control and need a reliable light to check all those hidden cracks and corners. The battery level indicator and memory setting for brightness really come in handy along with the USB rechargable battery- its always ready when I need it.
    Getting a bright colored clip to replace the black one has really helped for those moments when I set it down in a dark place.
    Would definitely recommend to anyone, I’ve loved every Fenix light I’ve owned.

    After years of incandescent Surefires and Maglights, we’ve changed out all of our SAR flashlights out to Fenix. Great light, great price and Fenix Lighting is an American Company!


    I had every day carried my original PD35 for 5 years before it finally gave up, after I dropped it this one last time, these are phenomenal lights.
    First thing I did is came back to order another Fenix, I went with the UC35 this time for its usb charging capability.
    I suspect that it will be every bit as good, if not better than my old light.
    My only issue is the holster could be designed a bit better, it tends to let the flashlight fall out after it has some age on it.
    That being said, I will never carry another brand of light, so long as I can still buy one from Fenix.

    The PD 35 is one of my MANY Fenix flashlights. It is great for EDC, or what ever else you might need it for. Also a great size for a pack or glove compartment. Beware, Fenix flaslights can be adddictive. I have tried other brands in the past and I have not found another brand that I like as well, at any price.

  143. Mike

    This is a nice flashlight; But I have not been able to get any response from this company concerning the life time warranty. I was in an extreme situation and broke the lenses. I am still hoping this review will get me some response by Fenix to repair my flashlight. I would also like to know if it is possible to upgrade my existing flashlight head to the newer multi color head (clear, red, and green).

    • Fenix Lighting U.S.

      You cannot purchase just a PD35 V2 to fit on an older PD35 flashlight replacement. We also don’t make a PD35 with the color options you discussed. But you can email the warranty department here for repairs:

  144. James Cohen

    PD 35UE is awesome. This new version, not so much—going by the specs. This seems to be more of a marketing change than an upgrade.

    It gets 40 extra lumen on Turbo which will be imperceptible, but loses 200 lumens on High, which is a lot! That’s almost 40%!

    So Fenix can claim “1000 Lumens” but has made the flashlight less usable. Do you think you’re likely to need 1000 lm more often than the 550 lm on high? Especially when Turbo is time and temp limited?

    It’s too bad Fenix is becoming more concerned about marketing than the usability of their flashlights. I hope this is not the start of a trend.

  145. Jim

    Awesome EDC light! Very good quality and very bright. If you need a high quality EDC with a floodier beam this will not disappoint.

  146. Will Thom

    Hello, Fenix Flashlights,
    I purchased a PD-35 from XXXX about 10 months ago. Somehow the main blub has burned out. Is this normal for a flashlight that I hardly used? If it is, and I decide to stick with my Fenix flashlight, where do I replace my PD-35’s blub assembly? When my light worked I was very pleased with its performance. Not sure what went wrong with my PD-35.

  147. Dan M

    I’ve carried my PD35 EVERY SINGLE DAY… Since I purchased it 5yrs ago. I literally have beat the crap out of it and it has yet to fail me… The lens still doesn’t have ANY SCRATCHES on it! if you’re looking to purchase a BADASS flashlight… Look no further. Get one.

  148. Tim

    I have been using this flashlight since 2013- it is my constant companion, in fact I don’t leave home without it. I lost it once outside in the mud and found it a month later after driving over it with my tractor. I picked it up, tuned it on and it still worked like a champ. This is the finest flashlight I have ever owned. I cannot offer higher praise. Fenix, you guys rock!

  149. wb valentine

    Excellent Lite . I have complete Fenix pd35 package using34000mAH rechargeable batteries. and Fenix charger. . Liite was working when I switched batteries . Lite would not turn back on using either battery ,recharged .Lite usage is not much so I doubt that the led bulb is gone .

    Suggestions please as the led head has never been of and will requier a wrench to remove it witch seems odd.. Before I do that

    Suggestions please. Thanks

  150. Mike S.

    I use this thing every day. It’s in my pocket at work, at home, in the woods, on my bicycle… Starting to see a trend? Get the charger and rechargeable battery, and you won’t be sorry.

    I’ve since bought two smaller Fenix lights for my son, and when this eventually dies, I’ll get another of the same model.

    It’s just a great flashlight – get it, and you won’t be sorry!

  151. Anthony R.

    My father-in-law bought the PD35 for me for my birthday this month. I thought how nice and thoughtful until I turned it on. Then I thought HOLY CRAP I didn’t know you could make a flashlight this small and this powerful. It is on par with a spot light up to about 400 feet and I use it on my property all the time just to see the wild critters. I would highly recommend this flashlight.

  152. Dom

    As a police officer (UK) I would say this is easily the best torch I have used over the years, and I have used many from various brands. It is very versatile – Good range (highest mode suitable for searching wide open areas) but also floody enough for close up work. Easy to use tail button is also essential for quick deployment (especially when wearing gloves). Love it, and it would take something pretty special to replace it on my tac-vest (that said, I never stop looking!).

  153. Robert Moran

    This flashlight has been absolutely tremendous in its performance. By far the best flashlight I have ever owned.
    It’s now around 2 and a half years old and has now failed.
    I don’t know if fenix will warranty it but I will be purchasing another either way.

  154. Gordon

    Had this flashlight since 2014 for work and I’m still amazed with the continued quality! Very wise purchase.

  155. John


    I’ve been using the Fenix PD-35 (960 Lumen version) for a little over 2 years now. I must say, this has been the best all around performing flashlight that I own and it’s now part of my every day carry.
    I use this light for everything, whether its camping, hiking or walking the dog at night.

    The bright beam pattern projects a good distance, while offering very usable up-close spill. Its also bright enough to disorient any would be attackers or stray dog in the area, which I’ve had to use on more than one occasion.

    I personally love the 5 different brightness modes to choose from. For only using one 18650, the battery life on the Fenix PD35 is just amazing!
    Hopefully one day soon, I’ll be able to test out and own the TK35 and TK47, both I believe are going to be home runs in my book.

  156. Mark

    I love this light. It changed the way I look at flashlights. I carried it everywhere. The only usage issue I had was the mode button was very hard to locate without looking at it. I added a blob of nail polish next to it to give my fingers something to feel and that helped. Unfortunately the rubber mode button ripped after a few months of contact with my jeans pocket. I wrapped gorilla tape around it and used it daily for another year and then one day the light just quit. No idea what went wrong and it was out of warranty. I should have returned it as soon as the boot ripped.
    I’m buying another one for my wife to carry. She will be easier on it than me, and I’m upgrading to the tactical model with the metal mode button.

  157. Peter

    Excellent flashlight but could be slightly improved. Mode button on side is a bit difficult to locate and should be more tactilely prominent. I wish it were focusable.

  158. Mstdriver

    I’ve had the PD35 for about 2 years with no problems. Absolutely a great, dependable light.

    I have several PD 35 flashlights. I use them as a weapon mounted lights and for work as a police officer.

Thank you for making such an exceptional product and for the package deals you offer.

    I’ve had the PD35 as my EDC light for about 3 years now and absolutely love it. Great quality, durable and always works when I need it.

  161. Ben

    I have four Fenix lights. PD35 was my third. I have had it for two years. The light is awesome and way less expensive than other lights I have purchased. It has never failed. The only issue, and this is not a Fenix issue, is that some of the 18650 cells that have circuit protection will blink and then shutdown in the turbo mode. The light apparently pulls too much from the battery and it shuts down. I solved the problem by buying higher quality 18650 cells.

  162. steve Thompson

    I have three Fenix lights now and I will only by lights from them. I am not a police officer or military but I am tool guy and and a gun guy, both of which I train with weekly. I only buy products that I use to defend my life or make my life easier that are quality and that work. The Fenix lights I have bought have been dropped thrown around put into every car bag and pocket I have and they have always worked. They are in my opinion well made, affordable bright well thought out tools. Thanks Fenix.

    We were bow fishing last July 4th weekend and I left the flashlight in the small leaky John boat tied off to shore after the night hunt. Next day, I found it completely submerged in a foot of water. Hit the button and on came the light. I’ve dropped it, used it to knock weld splatter off during inspections and basically abused the crap out of it. It never missed a beat in 3 years . Really good flashlight.

  165. Tony

    Put the batteries in the light worked for a split second then quit. Never had that happen with any of my flashlights. Especially not a $75 one.

      Tony–Have you reached out to customer service? This should be rectified quickly.

  166. Timothy

    The Fenix PD35 is hands down the best flashlight I ave ever owned. It has five brightness levels, the lowest is great for night ops, it emits just enough light to clearly see maps or other items. The brightest level is intense, I’ve had reflectors two miles away flash when pointed at them. As a testament to the intensity of the PD35, the light actually kept my hand warm in the -30F Minnesota winter. It also has a Dazzle strobe feature. Works great for dissuading those drivers that tailgate, every time I’ve used it for that they’ve backed off my 6 o’clock straight away.
    The quality is impeccable, it is manufactured from aircraft grade aluminum billet Quite the robust unit, takes a lot of abuse and never has missed a beat. The 18650 Li-Ion battery lasts FOREVER. My grandson turned it on and I found it over 24 hours later, and it was still shining.
    Well done Fenix, someone FINALLY manufactured a versatile flashlight that is well worth the price.

  167. John

    Thanks Phenix! I love my PD35! I’ve had mine for about a year now. Absolute best flashlight I’ve ever own! Lasts forever with my rechargable 18650 Li-On battery. Just the right amount of light for every job. Durable! I’ve dropped numerous times. Talked a few of my coworker into buying one and they absolutely love them as much as I do.

    Best dam flashlight I ever had. All the reviews I read are spot on. Will not disapoint.
    Buy one or two.

  169. Jeff

    This is my second fenix light. I am in pest control and this light is used daily for inspections. It must be turned on/off a hundred times a day. Still keeps on working. Been dropped several times, gone down a flight of concrete steps, still works with no problems. On medium I can go 4 days on one 18650 battery (3400). More than enough light to do just about whatever you need. I have owned this light since June 2015, and it feels like I will get many years of service out of it. Only negative I can think of is the Velcro on the belt pouch wears out.

  170. Ian Losby (verified owner)

    I am a confirmed flashlight addict. So far, this has been the best flashlight I have ever purchased. The best feature is the ability to switch between light output levels.

    For the price, this is a great investment. I tell all of my friends about these. Most have bought one off of my recommendation.

  171. Phil

    The PD35 is one serious flashlight. I bought the wife one…now we have 4 of them. Well made, compact and very bright.

  172. Wolf359

    Great flashlight so good i bought a second one. Only minor issue is fitting Panasonic 18650 protected cell, due to the cells length it can take abit of jiggling to fit the battery so the light does not come on or switch on by it’s self when knocked.

  173. S. Arnett

    This is the flashlight i use every night on patrol…has yet to let me down, whether searching houses or doing traffic stops, I know my light will see through the dark tint on a car and light up an entire room in a house…large or small

    I am a patrol deputy and the light I choose to carry is the PD35. Having a dependable light is essential in my world and Fenix lights will be the only brand I will ever put on my duty rig…

  175. Paul

    Brilliant piece of new technology! All lower brightness levels are useful. For example, the 10 lumen ‘Eco’ mode is bright enough to illuminate an area of close-up work without overwhelming one’s eyes, nor those of someone else. (I use it when checking my dog’s ears and such — I’ve got plenty of illumination, and he’ll be fine if the light hits his eyes directly.) Then walking him on my dark country street is handled by ‘Low’ and ‘Medium.’ A strange animal’s sound is investigated in ‘High’ or ‘Turbo’ out to four or five hundred feet, and a quick flash of ‘Strobe Mode’ reminds the occasional inconsiderate driver that he needs to dim his brights for pedestrians too. All this utility is in a single, tiny package!

  176. WolfClan49

    No longer scared of the dark. This bad boy puts out some serious light. Really impressed. Highly recommnend if you want a small well constructed hand held that means business. Come on darkness, I got something for you.

    I am a professional hunting guide so a serious flashlight is a must. This is the best flashlight I have ever used. I had mine for about 6 weeks and my hunting partner and I were on a blood trail of a wild boar when he noticed how well my light worked compared to his. A couple of days later he had one too.
    The size and capability of this light are superb.

    I agree with Jim.. great flashlight! It is my forth fenix light and is much brighter then my pd30, tk11 and tk21. But the case they give you lacks the d ring and wider belt loop… and what I liked with old cases on all my other fenix lights. Is the extra velcro strap to add to molly attachments on my other gear.
    Other then splitting hairs on case design… its worth the money and size to lumen ratio is incredible. You won’t be disappointed!
    P.S. if case drives you nuts.. maxpedition makes nice flaslight cases.

    wow, what a light!

    Fenix just keeps outdoing themselves.
    I have many many tactical and EDC flashlghts, some just ok, other pretty damn good but this is like the HOLy GRAIL of hand held flashlghts or may be not cause Fenix just keeps making them better and better.

    Simply extraordinary. The very large hot spot and side spill make this flashlight useful. A good range of modes. Very, very bright output using just CR123 batteries. Sold feel and good construction make this flashlight perfect for almost any task.
