Flashlight technology has advanced by “light years” over the past several years, thanks to LED technology and the miniaturization of electronics. Fenix, a leader in the lighting industry, has released a long-awaited focus-beam flashlight powered by a standard AA battery, the Fenix FD20 LED Flashlight. The powerful 350-lumen flashlight produces a focused beam spotlight with a beam distance of 377 feet. Twist the focusing ring and you get a 78-degree flood beam with a beam distance of 158 feet. With the Fenix FD20, you have total control over the beam pattern of your LED flashlight.
Another special feature of the Fenix FD20 LED Flashlight is the fact it operates on two commonly found AA batteries. AA-battery powered flashlights are popular for those who never want to be without a battery–no need to search for those specialized batteries that most flashlight operate with today. Preppers, survivalists, etc. demand alkaline battery flashlights. With the FD20, you have the option to use rechargeable lithium or 14500 batteries. These options make the Fenix FD20 highly attractive to users who demand quality in lighting gear.
