The popular Fenix PD35 2014 has been upgraded to the new PD35 V2.0 for 2018.
The PD35 V2.0 is a compact and lightweight LED torch that delivers 1000 lumens maximum output from the Cree XP-L HI V3 LED. It is powered by either two non rechargeable CR123A lithium metal batteries, two rechargeable 16340/RCR123A lithium-ion batteries or with one rechargeable 18650 lithium-ion battery.
The PD35 V2.0 offers five brightness levels and strobe, that are operated using the tactical tail button and the side mode button. The light is turned on and off by fulling clicking the tail switch or momentary illumination can be achieved by half pressing the tail button while the light is off. With the light turned on single presses of the side switch will cycle through eco, low, mid, high and turbo.
The last used brightness level will be memorised for when the light is next turned on. Holding the side button for 0.5 seconds with the light on will access the strobe setting and one press of the button will revert back to the previous brightness level.
A battery level indicator will automatically display the battery status each time the torch is turned on if you are using a 18650 lithium-ion battery. Constant green indicates a full charge, green flashes is sufficient charge, red constant is poor battery level and red flashes indicates critical battery level.
When using an 18650 battery, if the battery voltage drops below 3 V, the PD35 V2.0 is designed to downshift in brightness level until the eco output is reached. When eco is reached the battery level indicator will display red and the torch will flash once every 3 seconds to remind you to charge or replace the battery. The torch will continue to work until the over discharge protection kicks in to prevent the battery becoming overly depleted.
The intelligent over-heat protection will drop the turbo brightness level if the internal temperature reaches 65°C or above. When the temperature has reduced the light will automatically go back up to full brightness. This is to protect the LED from damage and prevent the surface temperature from becoming too high.

Eco: 3 lumens, 430 hours run-time; 13 m beam range
Low: 50 lumens, 29 hours, 30 minutes run-time; 60 m beam range
Mid: 150 lumens, 12 hours, 25 minutes run-time; 103 m beam range
High: 350 lumens, 5 hours, 10 minutes run-time; 157 m beam range
Turbo: 1000 lumens, 2 hours, 50 minutes run-time; 250 m beam range*
Strobe: 1000 lumens
Note: *The over-heat protection will drop the turbo brightness level if the internal temperature reaches 65°C or above. When the temperature has reduced the light will automatically go back up to full brightness. Therefore the run-time is an accumulated time.
Tested to ANSI / PLATO FL1 standard using one Fenix 18650 3500 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
