Default Fenix PD32 Ultimate Edition - $65 + free shipping

Pretty good deal for a neat light:
http://shaologear.com/products/fenix-pd32-ue
Use code PD32UE for another $10 off, bringing it down to $65.

Has a neat 740lumen burst mode and comes with a diffuser tip as well.

That's a bad a$s flashlight. What kind of batteries is it running on? I like the diffuser tip.

Hi Guys,
I noticed this thread in my logs. :-)

The flashlight takes CR123A cells. Same cells Surefire lights run on.

I paid $75 shipped when they first came out. Have it in my pocket now and it is everything I was expecting.

It's fun watching people's reactions when I light up the street with it. 740 lumens is fun.

Highly recommend the 18650 cells. Worth the extra cash and last 2x or more than RCR123A's.

Whats the throw on these like? I've been looking at one of these for a while for work, but I need a solid spotlight rather than a really bright floodlight.

There are some videos on youtube that show throw - here's one



This one shows the differences in light coloring between the older and Ultimate version - also demos the diffuser that comes with the UE.

I'm out of stock again, but the good news is I already had another order on its way. So more lights will be here tomorrow and go out the same day.

Worst case scenario, if your light doesn't ship today, it will ship tomorrow*.

Did the homework for you guys. These are re-branded Panasonic cells that come with a CPF approved charger. Use this link for the Shop42A referral:

Just an FYI, there are a lot of protected Panasonic cells in the 3100mAh capacity that don't work well in the Fenix lights (they're too long). Part of the Fenix design is a tail cap that makes contact with the battery tube. The longer lights end up grounding out on the tube. I've had two people so far with the same issue.

This is a thread about the PD32. Thanks for the tip on the MC11 anyways .

My Fenix E11 has been great FWIW, and I expect my new PD32 to be as well.

Just unboxed mine.

Wow, what a nice flashlight for $65. Nice build quality, very handy size, and man is it bright! It came with the diffuser, a lanyard, and a nylon belt holster. Cool.

Thanks OP/ShaoloGear. Ordered mine last night and got my shipping confirmation this morning. Been wanting a light for EDC. This one looks like a little pocket beast for a good price. Can't wait to test it out when it arrives.

How is the rechargeable 18650 performing with the flash light? I am in the market for one and saw this thread and thought about order the flash light along with the Fenix charger and battery.

18650s work very well with this light. I would recommend against using anything over 2600mAh though.
