Fenix LD12 Reviews and Ratings

Today one attaches to one of the lamps EDC of Fenix, the LD12 (big sister of the LD10). A powerful Led torch of only 10cm that will satisfy lovers of high-end flashlights at a good price.Just like models like the F35 PD35 , this lamp will accompany you in your backpack throughout the day and your adventures outdoors!

Our opinion on this model of pocket

  • Manufacturing quality Fenix
  • Good value for money
  • 4 lighting modes + Stroboscope
  • Up to 320 lumens when used with battery type 14500
  • Up to 45 hours of battery life
  • Supplied with hand strap + AA battery + spare O-ring!

In short:

A very good lamp for everyday use (EDC) as well as for activities such as camping etc. With the Fenix ​​lamps, we are never disappointed whether it is for the quality of manufacture or power so darken your eyes closed, the investment will quickly profit!

Summary of products tested

We tested the LD12 model from Fenix .A small tactical lamp with beautiful performances as you will attest by reading this complete test!

Characteristics of the Fenix ​​LD12

Before talking about the technical characteristics, know that we tested the model Fenix ​​LD12 edition 2017 which is an upgrade of the old versions especially with a maximum power of 320 lumens if you replace the battery by a battery.

As you can see from the previous picture, we are on a classic design as for most Fenix ​​torches (and personally I love the design of the Fenix ​​lamps).

Characteristics of the Fenix ​​LD12 2017:

  • The lamp is entirely in brushed aluminum
  • A weight of 73 grams with the AA battery provides
  • A length of 10.2 cm and diameter of 2.1 cm (head and body)
  • Water resistant (IPX-8) and shocks <1 meter
  • Model supplied with spare O-ring, strap and AA battery, user manual
  • Autonomy up to 45h in low power mode
  • Modulating power ( 4 intensity modes + Strobe ) up to 320 lumens if you use the lamp with a battery 14500 otherwise it will be 150 lumens max.
  • The lamp has, like most Fenix ​​models, a low-voltage alarm (to indicate that the battery needs to be changed) as well as an anti-overheating system like thrunite tn12.

PS: for those looking for the manual it is here: see the notice Fenix ​​LD12.

Our complete test of the LD12 series 2017

This lamp has the vocation of being an EDC lamp rather than an ultra powerful military lamp by default as we said previously so we do not expect miracles in terms of power.

A good flashlight for do-it-yourself for example (in addition to a strobe lamp for the mechanics).

Manufacturing quality

Side quality, Fenix ​​did not foutu of us as usual one is on a body in brushed aluminum very pleasant to the touch .We like that the body is anodized and non-slip especially for a model of this dimension.

The model is of course IPX8 like all Fenix ​​lamps and resistant to falls.

In short

High quality, nothing special to complain about this model.

What autonomy?

Fenix ​​tells us up to 60 hours of battery life in low power mode (5 lms) with a Ni-MH battery but we will shoot more around the 45 hours according to our test.

Battery life will vary depending on the type of battery used.Basically if you opt for a rechargeable battery type 14500 it will turn around 41 hours and for a classic battery, around 38 hours, always in 5 lms mode.

We tested this model with the base stack and here is the data we found for each intensity:

  • Turbo:47 minutes (150 lms)
  • High:2 hours 49 minutes (70 lms)
  • Medium:9 hours 23 minutes (30 lms)
  • Low consumption:38 hours (5 lms)

In short

An autonomy in average and which will suffice for an EDC lamp knowing that one will use that very rarely Turbo mode.It is nevertheless recommended by estaterealest to invest in a rechargeable battery in order to gain a few minutes of autonomy and have a rechargeable flashlight!

Power and Tactical Modes

As mentioned previously, we tested the LD12 2017 with the AA battery provided by default and therefore a maximum power of 150 lumens .

The lighting in turbo mode is clearly powerful and will suffice to illuminate any object in a big radius at more than 40 meters range !The beam is colored white, rather cold like most Fenix ​​lamps.

This model will not be powerful enough as a hunting lamp for example but for camping this will clearly be enough power.

The lamp only heats up very little even in turbo mode after a few minutes, proof of the Fenix ​​manufacturing quality and good temperature management via the internal printed circuit to the torch.

You can change the intensity via the side button (the tactical button on the back serves only to light the lamp and for the momentary lighting mode.

In short

Large enough power for all day-to-day activities.4 tactical modes to save battery and adjust power.

Getting Started and Using

With its featherweight (73g) and its 10.2 cm length, this lamp will fit perfectly in your pocket of jeans or in the back of your backpack.She will be able to forget all day.

In terms of handling.10.2 cm is little and if you really have big hands, the lamp may tend to slip out of your hands but otherwise not really worry at this level there.

We feel directly that the lamp is of quality with its frame in aluminum.Do not forget that the lamp is equipped with a clip base to attach it to your belt for example and it’s a big one for a flashlight.

We regret a little that the lamp does not stand up (in candle mode) due to the tactical button in the back.

In short

The Fenix ​​LD12 is handy, lightweight and effective under all circumstances (almost).In terms of ergonomics, the model is well designed, no complaints for daily use is perfect.

Guarantee

Fenix ​​torches have a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Our opinion on the LD12 pack 2017

Well we can already tell you that this flashlight pleasantly surprised us but we expected no less from a torch Fenix!

First good surprise, the format and lightness of lamp, very pleasant for a transport in everyday life, the lamp is really forgetting and is the goal!

We also like the fact that this compact model is equipped with 4 lighting modes (the stroboscope mode will be very rarely useful).On the one hand, it is possible to adjust the power according to the situation but also to manage the battery life more easily.

The torch comes with a good quality AA battery as well as 1 spare O-ring in case + a wrist strap.The kind of little details that make the difference at this rate!The belt clip is a plus too.

For short, we recommend this small torch light . You will not be disappointed with your investment, taking care it will last for years!

Buy the Fenix ​​LD12 at best price

We personally bought the LD12 2017 edition on Amazon as it was there that we found the best rate.If you are looking to buy the Fenix ​​LD12 2017 cheap, we recommend you compare different official resellers with Amazon as a benchmark price.

A soon on my flashlight!
