New Toys - Couple New Fenix Lights.

I just bought a couple nice little flashlights.. One for me and while I was at it, the Wife wanted a little flashlight for her keychain... Just so happens Fenix-Store (now called 4sevens.com) had a really nice little one on sale for a decent price.. So I got her that too... It's like 2" long and probably twice as bright as a maglight 3c...
I'll check the specs
Posting it up because I know LonelyRaven is really into these things and guided me in this direction... and I had a few observations/questions.. and hell just wanted to tell everyone about the good deal on such a bright ass tiny light (wifes).. mine was pretty close to I am guessing retail as it's pretty much the same price everywhere...

Here is her little bug



Introducing the P1D CE Q5
The Fenix P1D CE(Cree Edition) is a digitally controlled constant current multilevel flashlight Fenix has to offer. It has five modes: Primary -> Max -> Low -> Strobe Mode -> SOS Mode, which not only allows the user to select the best compromise between brightness and runtime for any given task but also has ability to aid in an emergency. The P1D CE does all this and still retains a very compact size. If you’re looking for solid reliability, digitally regulated brightness, and compact size, this Fenix is for you.

Features

• Utilizes a Cree 7090 XR-E LED with a life of 50,000 hours
• 5 Output Levels: 96 lumens (2.8hrs) -> 180 lumens (1hrs) -> 16 lumens (21hrs) -> Strobe -> SOS
• Digitally Regulated for Constant Brightness
• Uses one CR123A battery (not included)
• 7.1cm (L) x 2.1cm (D) ( or 2.8 in (L) x 0.8 in (D) )
• Made of aircraft grade aluminum
• Durable Type III hard anodized finish
• 27-gram (or 1.0 oz) weight (excluding batteries)
• Water-resistant (dunkable)
• Toughened ultra clear glass lens with AR coating
• Reliable twist switch
• Capable of standing up securely on a flat surface to serve as a candle
• Battery not included
• Includes a holster, a lobster claw, and a spare o-ring

Operation

Turn the head of the flashlight clockwise to turn on the flashlight. A counter clockwise turn will then switch it off. To toggle between brightness levels, turn the light on, and then turn it off. Within 1.5 seconds after being turned off, twist the head on again and it will be switched to the next brightness level. Just do the same thing to switch it to the third stage and so forth. Keep the light off for over 1.5 seconds, and the light will turn completely off, and the regulative circuit will be restored.

Product Warranty
Limited lifetime warranty. Repair is free, but the cost of parts will be charged.


and here is my new light



Fenix TK11 Flashlight
The Fenix Tactical series (T) features a powerful, solid, durable, and waterproof design intended for rugged outdoor and military use. It's as solid as a tank. The TK11 can use either two primary (non-rechargeable) CR123A batteries or one rechargeable 18650 battery with a protective circuit, and it maintains excellent constant brightness with two output modes: General mode, which can last for a whole night and can be used for general illumination, and Turbo mode, which can be used whenever high-powered light is needed - search and rescue, long-range target identification, etc.

Features

* Cree Premium (Q5) 7090 XR-E LED with lifespan of 50,000 hours
* Two modes of output, selected by turning the bezel (Patented):
Turbo Mode: 225 Lumens
2.7 hours (one 18650 Li-ion battery)

12 hours (one 18650 Li-ion battery)
10 hours (two CR123A batteries)

i really like the fit and finish on the tk11... I would put it on par with the high dollar surefires my friends have.. what I do not understand is where did all of the modes go?

i thought it had low/med/high beam and strobe... the little one i got my wife has low/high fast and slow strobes.. this thing just has low and high
