    Flashlight Review: Fenix L1T

    Ok ladies and gents. I recieved my Fenix L1T today and I have to admit, I couldn't be happier. This is a great upgrade from the L1P. If you haven't read it here is the review of the L1P that I did. This like is basically the same as the L1P except for, it uses a Luxeon III emitter instead of a Luxeon I emitter. Supposedly the emitters are the same except the III has be thermal properties. Besides the better emitter, the L1T also has two levels of output. You turn the light on just like you would with the L1P, by clicking the tail cap. Then you either tighten the head all the way for high output (same as the L1P) or loosen it a bit for low output (much dimmer). The L1T also has a bit shinier finish than I remember on my L1P. Doesn't bother me, it is quite pleasing to the eyes. The output is very white and not blue at all. I only used Energizer Lithium AA's in my L1P for the longer runtime. Runtime with the L1T sould be in the area of:

    Energizer Lithium AA:
    High-more than 3 hours to 50% brightness
    Low-more than 14 hours to 50% brightness

    Energizer Alkeline AA:
    High-more than 1 hour 20 minutes to 50% bightness
    Low-more than 10 hours to 50% brightness

    Runtimes where taken from tests done on www.candlepowerforums.com.

    The low setting was actually a suprise to me. I was expecting it to be quite dim but I think It will be used more than the high setting.

    So, here are the pics:

    Dorcy Super 1Watt (1x123a) vs. L1T on low.


    Same image only negative.


    Dorcy Super 1 Watt (1x123a) vs. L1T on high.


    Same image only negative.


    And a few pics of the L1T its self.





    Horrible pic. Sorry.


    Everything about the L1T is the same (ie size, weight, portability, etc) except for what I mentioned above.

    If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask.

    Glad to hear it. I've been thinking about one since they are so reasonably priced. Their frame seem tough enough to take reasonable abuse?

    Nice review, clipse! Thanks! I think you've sold me on the new model.

    Good review. Fenix makes nice durable lights. I carry 4 Fenix lights daily, along with my Surefire U2.
