    I got my E 12 for a gift 3 yrs ago . Now it’s missing and I realized how much I used it and with my eye sight failing with the years I can’t go on without a reliable source of light. The E 12 is not to big to carry in my front pants pocket or hold it in my mouth while working with both hands. It’s powered with 1 AA battery that can be purchased all most anywhere even though they last a very long time. Can’t wait to get my new pd 35 . I think I deserve a upgrade.

    I carried this light every day for years and it worked well. It puts out a good amount of light but is still easy to carry in a back pocket. I’ve carried it overseas and in restrictive environments where traditional self defense options were not allowed. It does it’s job well and gives me another option. The head went bad and I contacted Fenix. They sent a replacement without any problems. They’ve earned my business in the future. I appreciate it when companies stand behind their products.

    This PD35 TAC is a superb flashlight small enough to carry in a pocket. In the usual Fenix tradition, it is a quality piece of equipment and I am very impressed with its performance – it will certainly light up the night. When outdoors at night, my PD35TAC is always within arms reach. Thanks for a great product.

    Best light I ever owned for 2 years. Went through hell and back with me. Great for the working man. Definitely worth the money until… I dropped it one time. From about a 6 foot vertical drop. I had it clipped onto the bill of my hat. My hat hit the concrete first and rolled ever so slightly as the flashlight grazed the cement floor it went dark. I’ve tried new batteries to no avail. The flashlight is tough in all meanings of the word except when it comes to impact resistance. It was a rather infuriating series of events. I’d still like to say I got my $70 worth out of 2 years of use, but it really came to a drastic and unfortunate demise. Moral of the story is, don’t drop it. It can’t handle an impact and it will leave you in tears and an empty wallet. You’d be better off buying $20 flashlight because at least when you drop it and it goes dark you’ll only be out $20 instead of $70. Hope this helps.

    I was very impressed as well as pleased with the build quality and functionality of the PD35 TAC, although my only wish is that the tactical mode settings were easier cycling. The half press and full press would skip over certain settings when in ‘tactical’ mode. That aside, almost near to the perfect flashlight!

    Lost a PD35 2014 Edition. Had too many flat top batteries to purchase PD35 V2. Lucky PD35 Tac uses flat top batteries. Bought 2 so I would not always have to go get the one flashlight if in a different room. Very happy the the Tac flashlights. Basically same as my old PD35 but with better case protection around the glass.
    Why purchase a higher priced “name” brand when Fenix is a “name” brand at a reasonable price. Customer for life.

    Best flashlight on the market! Ordered on of these for an everyday day carry and use it almost every single day. Light weight, very sturdy, water resistant, and the different brightness setting make this flashlight the best flashlight for pretty much everything. I just baught a second one to mount to my rifle and I will be ordering more to keep in vehicles and around the house if need be. Very spectacular. 10/10 would reccomend.

    This is my second PD-35TAC, not because the first one has problems but because it doesn’t! As an overnight news photography and a volunteer firefighter I have put the light through a lot and it just works. It’s also amazingly bright for such a small package. I find very few products that exceed my expectations but this is one!

    This is my second fenix light and its a great addition to my headlamp. The PD35 is slim enough for pocket carry and comfortable in the hand. However, I mostly use this light as a primary hand lamp for caving. The light has decent throw and good neutral brightness.

    This is one of 3 Fenix flashlights I have. I also an older PD31 and an older TK35. TK is for the house which works fine (soon to be replaced by a big bad TK75 🙂 ) but my PD35 TAC is my go to EDC light. It goes with me everywhere. As a Realtor and a Roofer, this thing is a lifesaver. Showing homes where they turned off the electricity? No problem. Clients can’t believe how much light this thing throws off. Looking for stains on a ceiling to track roof leaks? No problem again. Shine up and find the yellow spots with ease. Love my Fenix lights and this one never disappoints.

    The Jury Is Still Out, I’m glad to see springs at both ends of the battery connection. The previous models only had a tail cap spring and when dropped head first they either broke the board in the head or caved in the button top of the battery.

    I have PD32s and 35s that I use regularly. Bought this as a curio, really. It’s a great light. I use this one for camping and hiking. It’s various lumens settings are a bit higher at each setting. The spot beam is wider than the PD35’s but just as concentrated. The flood beam interior, though, is more pronounced than the PD35’s. This works very well for hiking and seeing trails and navigation marks simultaneously.

    The holsters are great. Admittedly, if you use the flashlight in harsh environments daily, it won’t hold up for long, but the holster, itself, is well thought out. The little loop above the belt loop is great for carrying it close to your waist but not on it. I use a small carabiner attached to the little loop and my jeans belt loop. The holster has great water drainage and air ventilation via a round opening at the bottom. You could also shine light through the holster forwards and backwards, if desired. Velcro seems like good quality. The belt loop does seems a bit flimsy, but feels better on a waistline than most. Well done flashlight and holster!

    I bought this light in September of 2016 and I dropped it for the last time a few days from this post and I was happy up until this point cause I dropped it from my pocket and it quit working and keep in mind I carried back up battery because I used it so much just wish they could make the light atleast 2meter drop resistant because I’m a little over 6feet tall and a meter is half that so I dropped it from max level every time

    I have a flashlight in my side pocket all of the time – I use it every day. I clipped it to a suspended ceiling wire yesterday and worked on HVAC equipment for over 3 hours. It’s bright enough to shine at a light fixture 15′ up and see which way it opens. Rear button turns it on & off – no cycling through a half-dozen modes to find “off”. And the batteries with the built-in charger are the best solution I’ve seen. Nothing to lose, just find a mini-USB charger and you’re good to go. I purchased a second one, a third battery and a headband today.

    Powerful little flashlight! Cycling through the different settings is very easy. I’m very happy with it. If I were to look for something to complain about, it would be that occasionally, when I have the flashlight in a full hand grip, I find myself accidentally hitting the mode button when turning it on with my thumb.

    PD 35 … I have 3, one for work carry, one for the dog walk and one in the house.
    Small and packs a lot of power that lasts. Opt for the most mAh battery available and always spare just in case.
    Brightest white light than any of my coworkers.
    When working, a PD35 either tethered on a retractable belt carabiner, clipped to a multitool pouch with the included wrist lanyard – lost 1 and it won’t happen again!
    I recommend the Fenix line to all fellow LEO’s.

    I purchased the PD35 Tac and the $10 rechargeable battery on special. The flashlight is nothing short of amazing. I’ve only had it a few days but first impression is it is a well built piece. Small enough to easily carry in your pocket but with BIG light! Time will tell about durability. The only very small, little “disappointment” (emphasis on small) is that the battery will not fit my other “premium brand” flashlights. Not a big deal though because I keep plenty of CR123’s on hand.
    Overall, excellent!

    The pd35 is my favorite flashlight. It is small enough to carry all the time, yet bright enough for any task. The different brightness levels allow for excellent battery life if needed, and the memory level in outdoor mode allows you to instantly go back to the previously used intensity, which is useful if you are trying to conserve battery and stay on low, or instantly get into the desired without having to cycle through. Being able to turn on strobe while in outdoor mode is a nice feature. Having tactical mode simplifies things if you want to blind someone, and the tac low starting high and ramping down is a nice feature. It feels well built and both the finish and the lens doesn’t scratch easily. The light is white, not blue or yellow and is a nice valence between flood and spot.

    Great light, only drawbacks are that it does not tail-stand, and the front edge needs a crenellated strike bezel like the TK series.

    Absolutely amazing light! I’ve had my PD35 Tac for about 6 months, and it’s holding up just fine! I’ve dropped it, sat on it, and fell on it, and it’s still as bright as it was when I got it! I love the easy-to-use lumen settings and the Tac Mode. Strong belt clip, waterproof body, good grip, awesome strobe, and it does’nt roll off the table when I set it on its side because of the design of the body. Too bad it can’t tail stand though. I use 3500 mah batteries with it because they last the longest, and I can recharge them when needed.

    I use this flashlight daily as a professional plumber, added a head strap for hands free operation for under sinks and crawl spaces. Use it as a pointer for explanation of various projects all the while providing all the light I need all week long on single rechargeable battery. I have to say it is the brightest, toughest light I’ve ever had very sample maintenance has created a unbeatable value. Owned this pd35 tac light for 3 years works like new, looks well used.

    Amazing light. I had a hard time believing that such a small light could actually be this bright. I use it all the time, at first I kept it with my EDC bag, but now it stays in my front pocket. It’s great for hunting, fishing, and checking around the house if something makes noise outside. You can’t beat the quality for the price.

    Mixed feelings about this light. I use it mainly for general outside use and hiking in rugged terrain at night. I love the beam pattern and luminosity levels. I can always find one that suits my needs. It has a strong beam and is more floody than my Fenix TK15UE. I find the wider spill of the PD35Tac suits me better. On the downside, the steel side switch to change levels is difficult to feel for and will be impossible with gloves on. My biggest doubt about this light however is its reliability. I have noticed a couple times when cycling through the levels with the side switch that it occasionally will not proceed to the next level and I have to hit the switch again. More alarming to me was the other night my son was using the light with the wrist lanyard attached and he tripped and fell. The light went out and would not turn back on. I tried the on off button and the side switch. Nothing. I removed the battery and reinserted it and the light came back on and worked for the rest of the night. I am certain the tail cap was on tight so I don’t know what caused the light to stop working after such a small tumble. We still had about 4 miles to go in pitch black darkness and this was his primary light. At this point I am having trouble trusting this light with my life in the deep woods. I have many other flashlights (including 4 other Fenixs) that have gone through far worse and didn’t go out on me.

    My wife says that I have a flashlight feddish but my buying of more lights has come to an end with the PD35TAC. This is the top of the line when it comes to brightness., Reliably, and functions. I love the lithium ion rechargeable batteries. If you’re on the fence about paying the extra money for the light take my my word, this is the one that is worth every penny. I have spent money for the cheaper lights but it seems like you have to buy several because they just don’t last. The feel and function of this torch is incredible, and it will last a lifetime if you can keep up with it. Surefire lights don’t come close, Olight is the only one that compares. You can’t go wrong with the PD35TAC. If I could afford it I would get another one for the car.

    I have several ” so called tactical lights” at home but PD35 TAC flashlight from Fenix is the absolute best I have found. It does what it says! This is the brightest flashlight I have ever bought. It out shines the cheap Tac lights you see on TV. They are built to last and they stand behind their products. This flashlight is small, powerful, and yet lightweight. I love it and have recommended it to my family and friend. ( I love to show it off)

    I have quite a collection of high tech lights, but the PD35TAC has quickly become my favorite and my EDC. I was so impressed after it arrived, I quickly ordered a second one to keep in my truck. Incredibly bright and rugged, this light is extremely versatile. The only flaw I’ve noticed is the hexagon portion designed to keep the light from rolling doesn’t work very well. On a flat marble or tile surface the light will still tend to roll unless it is a perfectly level plane. I’m very comfortable recommending this light to anyone looking for a small, strong, incredibly bright light.

I drive a truck (fuel hauler) and this light goes with me to work, and off work. Flashlight is lightweight and you never know it’s there until you need it. Bright enough for any situation

    I have used this flashlight for sometime now. It is as bright as one might want and surprisingly so. I carry one of two that I have when ever I leave the house. Not always home before dark. It fits the belt mounted pouch OK, but I prefer to just put it into my back jeans pocket or even one of the side pockets. For me it is easier to access there. The light out put is amazing and the settings for higher or lower light output are most handy. I use it at the lowest setting around the inside of the house. It is more than enough for me to see well! Seems to be pretty sturdy as I accidentally dropped it a couple times and it still works! Seems impervious to rain and I mean downpours!

    The batteries are a good choice for this type of light. I use the 18650 units.

    Bought a second one that I keep in my truck. Going to buy another soon for my tackle box!

    If it had a built in SOS setting things would even be better, especially if you were injured and pushing the button were to become difficult.

    GREAT flashlight! Buy one. You will not be disappointed!

    Best flashlight I’ve ever owned. Quality materials, quality craftsmanship. This thing is built to last. And it’s BRIGHT! Good battery life with the 3400mah rechargeable. And the fenix lifetime warranty lets me sleep at night.

    My only critique is the wide beam. A bit too much flood for my taste. But that’s more of a personal preference and I think Fenix just came out with a different model that has an adjustable beam?

    Bottom line: I would not hesitate to buy another fenix product! And this PD35TAC is a great one!

    This light is great! Ordered it with the 3500mAh battery and the charger. Still on 1st charge. I ordered this Feb. 1st and here it is April 8th and it still has 3.7v charge. I’m a professional brewer and this light sees a lot of water and hot moisture. The grip is nice knowing I won’t drop it in a fermenter after cleaning. Constantly use this all day at work and even when I get home. I like the thought that they offer accessories. I use the diffuser tip and the red lens for locking up chickens at night. It’s ridiculously bright! Wish they made it tailstand to use a lampshade. Maybe they can make a replacable tail piece for upgrade accesory. Good job Fenix!

    The light was amazing right out of the box. I purchased this light in April of 2016 and have been extremely satisfied with it. However on my last trip to Thailand where I was going to be caving the light suddenly stopped working. I switched out multiple batteries with no luck. I live in Asia so the shipping fee to return the item isn’t worth sending it back. I’m thinking about buying another one but there’s still a sour taste in my mouth.

    Dollar-for-dollar, dollar-for-lumen, this is hands down the best flashlight deal available. You will NOT find a better, brighter, or better-manufactured, flashlight. I have had this light for two years, it has been strong and sturdy, it has never shown any weak points in its metal manufacturing, and has a lumen variability that will get you through any need. You will see a light from other manufacturers that is NOT as bright as this go for three times the price. Battery life is very good, and if you aren’t using the 18650 Li-ion batteries, you need to get yourself a couple batteries and a charger. You will get years of service out of this flashlight and one set of batteries. There really is no better deal for a better flashlight.

    I got a Fenix PD35 Tactical for christmas.

    I totally love this compact torch, it has so much power (1000Lumens) and the build quality is amazing!!!

    The 5 brightness modes and strobe feature are very useful, because you can reduce your battery usage by changing modes to a lower setting on long trips.

    The CR123A batteries last forever, but they are not cheap and not everywhere stocks them.
    I went to a few stores in Montreal before finding them in a Pharmaprix.

    I would like to get hold of a Fenix charger and the Fenix ARB-L18 High-Capacity 18650 Battery – 3500mAh rechargeable batteries next or maybe the newer Fenix ARB-L18-3500U USB Rechargeable Li-ion 18650 Battery.

    I love how it stores the last setting!! Plus, the rechargeable battery seems to last for ever… I dropped it in a tank full of Jet Fuel and still works very well to this day. Customer Service at Fenix is second to none! This is my third light and they replaced a broken one with no issues … Try that with other (higher priced) tactical lights…

    I carry this light every day and find myself using it constantly. It is small enough to carry in a pocket but I mainly keep mine in a belt clip. This flashlight for me is perfectly designed to use in outdoor mode. I also always keep the belt clip pointed toward the side switch. When holding the light I cup my hand and keep the belt clip at the top with my thumb in contact with the belt clip and the side switch. By doing this I never have to look to change the power level or go to strobe. If an emergency were ever to arise, whether human or animal, I can instantly activate the strobe function. My brother has 7 Fenix flashlights and loves them all, and has never had any problems with any of them.

    Couldn’t be more satisfied with this. The light fits better than I expected in the pocket, and the modes (after figuring out timing) are very easy to access. Tactical strobe is seconds away, and outdoor mode is very intuitive. The light, though small, feels extremely solid, and I wouldn’t worry a single bit if it dropped or fell into water.

    Being myself, I wanted to see how bright the light was, and tested the turbo and strobe in a mirror, and it is quite disorienting. Also tested the strobe in a fully sealed room with the lights off, and the rave- er, strobe, was quite disorienting, which is excellent.

    Overall, couldn’t be more satisfied with this. I thought it would be cumbersome to carry around, but it takes up very little pocket space. If you are looking for a solid tactical flashlight, you can’t go wrong with this.

    I bought the PD35 a year ago for a duty light to replace the mediocre light my police service issues me.

    I love this light. I usually operate it on medium… as thats all is required. I have been known to crank it up to max when searching wooded areas etc.

    Ive noticed several other my colleagues also have bought this light and they also enjoy it.

    I want to buy a second one for home despite the price!

    Fenix are great! I also bought a small E02 for backup to keep with me and I have also used that countless times.

    Bought this torch with two 3400 mah 18650’s and I haven’t touched any of my other lights since. Extremely bright, dependable, and high quality. I’m hard to impress but this torch does the trick.

    Use it nightly to take the dogs out and it lights up my entire backyard. I use it almost exclusively in turbo mode. Runs for about 3 weeks before the turbo mode is the same brightness as the fourth mode. That’s when I recharge. If I would wait for it to dim more, I bet I could go two months between battery charges.

    I’ve handled coworkers streamlights that cost double what this one does and they are no match for the PD35TAC. Awesome product and it seems to last. I’m not dangling off mountains or anything but I have dropped it on my concrete porch. The light still looks new.

    Great job and awesome product.

    I just purchased the PD35 tac and have not yet field tested it. However I charged the battery all the way and must say I am very pleased. The amount of light that this thing puts out is amazing. Even on a low setting it can really temporarily blind you. It will be great for my uses (Camping, Backpacking and cycling). Customer service was great and I would recommend this item to anyone.

    I’ve owned a PD32 light that I have been using for camping. LOVE this light. BUT, I live in the middle of 12 acres and it’s ink blot dark out here, so I purchased the PD35 TAC Edition to get the Turbo 1000 lumens!! I upgraded and ordered the Kit that came with 2 rechargeable batteries, the DUAL charger – which can be powered by a house plug OR the car lighter- extra O rings, an extra On/Off rubber button, Lanyard. I also ordered the heavier duty holster ($15) because it can be unsnapped off your belt or pant loop in a hurry, unlike the standard issue, which can only be threaded thru your belt. I just received this one today, so tonight, I’m gonna light it up out here! LOL

    LOVE the PD series. LOVE Fenix. Customer Service is excellent!! There are several distributor sites if you search for Fenix, but I chose Fenixlighting.com as their site just had better detail.

    This is great! I have the 1000 Tac. It has a nice flood while giving good throw. I use this mostly on my bicycle & the beam color is perfect. I don’t like yellowish or off color tinted beams. On strobe I get the “I can’t see” because some insist on looking right into the powerfull beam, I’d rather they look away than I get run over. The hard anodizing seems really hard & of high quality. The interface takes a bit of getting used to & then all is ok. Fenix did a great job with this one.

    Wanted the flashlight as a security measure. It’s really dark in my neighborhood and I’ve become uneasy when taking my dog out at night. I’m very pleased with the quality and function. The size is perfect. It can light up the area across the field. And I have no doubt it will blind someone if needed. Just what I want to diffuse a situation and I’m sure it will if the time comes. I also keep it at my bedside. For me it’s better than a gun. As a lady with small hands I can’t use the rear switch and then quickly use the strobe without having to completely reposition the light and then find the side button to depress. I’d like to see the side switch near the end cap so I could quickly move from one to the other.

    Customer service was fantastic, answered quickly, and resolved my concerns far better than I expected. Light arrived within 48 hours.

    Want to share what a great flashlight and wonderful service I received.

    First of all, bought the PD35 Tactical with rechargeable kit (2 18650). I know this product is new, but folks in my business (law enforcement) are going to love this thing. Size is compact, light is amazing with just enough throw to spread, and when you purchase the recharge kit no need for fear of batteries running down. I’m just going to always have a backup running. Light is just FIRST CLASS.

    Now on service, ordered light and received within just 48 hrs. Wonderful. Then have a couple questions on the light so I come back to website to get customer service number and call. Amazingly someone answers right away. I talk for 10 minutes to a friendly gal who helps me understand all my options with the product and warranty (basically same as my current streamlight). In the process, helps me find a store close by that can help me if I have more questions and need more products, then helps me find a duty holster option.

    Great job Fenix! Proud to make the change and look forward to using your products in the future.

      It depends on the charger and battery. If you get Fenix combinations with Fenix Chargers/Batteries, then you are looking for about 3.5 hours. And we always recommend the option of purchasing a couple rechargeable batteries. One in the PD35Tac working for you and another being charged waiting.
