Today I am reviewing the Fenix PD35 LED flashlight. The PD35 is a new addition to the outstanding PD series family. What sets this light apart from the others, well, it’s very VERY bright for it’s overall size. At only 5″ long you get an astounding 850 lumens of light output!
To put that into perspective, my Fenix TK35 is about 6.5″ long with a 2″ diameter head and it’s 820 lumens. As you can see by comparing the TK35 to this new PD35, you are getting a lot for the money in a compact package. And speaking of money, this light is just under $75 bucks. The price, parts, and overall functionality of this light really make it one of my favorite lights I’ve reviewed.
The PD35 flashlight uses a CREE XM-L U2 LED which has six different light modes. Fenix says it should last at least 50,000 hours although I wouldn’t doubt if it last at least twice as long. I have been EDCing my Fenix PD20 for the last year and half and I use it almost everyday and it still works like a champ. The light has a large central hotspot with enough overspill to illuminate an entire room. The throw is not as good as my TK35, but with the more compact size, that is to be expected.
My final conclusion on the Fenix PD35 LED Flashlight: This flashlight is one of if not the best flashlights I have ever owned. Fenix has out done it’s self again! I have became very spoiled to EDCing my Fenix PD20 but over the last week or so I’ve been carrying this light. If I where limited to having just one flashlight this would be the one.
I got mine from eBay and suggest you purchase yours there too. Their pricing is spot on and shipping and customer service is some of the best in the industry. Definitely get yourself one; you won’t be disappointed !!
