Fenix has launched its smallest LED flashlight since the E05, the E12, which is small enough to be used as a keychain. The new flashlight is an updated version of the highly popular E11 from the company’s everyday collection of compact and energy efficient flashlights. E12 has not increased in size, but it has become more functional and more powerful.
The design of the Fenix E12 has remained virtually unchanged, the mode switching is now carried out by a button on the end. The flashlight is made in a sealed aluminum housing that meets ANSI and IPX-8 standards. Inside there is a Cree XP-E2 LED with a maximum output of at least 130 lumens and a service life of about 50,000 hours.
The device is powered by a single AA battery (Ni-MH, Alkaline), there are only three operating modes: Low 8 Lum, Mid 50 Lum and High 130 Lum. In the maximum mode, the flashlight is able to work from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the choice of battery type. The Fenix E12 LED flashlight has a suggested retail price of $25. >
