I carry a PD20 in my left front pocket 24/7. It's a great little light with plenty of output.

Ditto here. Best out there, in my opinion, especially for the money. Have one in my wallet, the same in the gun safe, and yet

another on my key chain. Gave an improved version of my gun safe one to the father-in-law for this past Christmas. He is a

lineman for Georgia Power and can sit in the truck and look at the power lines at night using it.

+1 on the PD20

I also carry it 24/7 and in most cases it has too much light!!

I also carry the PD30. Best light I've ever owned. If I have pants on, it's in my pocket.

Guess I am a bit of a fenix fanatic. I own a PD30, PD30R4, PD32, TK15, TK21 and TK40.
And now I'm drooling over the PD35 with 850 lumens.

PD35 is great. Extremely versatile light. It's my EDC as well.

I've used Fenix lights for over 5 years. Have 3 right now. I don't think you can beat them for the price. Although I'm sure they're great (maybe the best) lights Surefire are way too much money for me. A lot of options to choose in a light. They might be good but I don't want a rechargable light. I keep many CR-123 on hand and can find good buys on Amazon etc. How you change settings (especially to strobe) can be tricky too. I perfer one that I can have off but when tail capped on it goes right to strobe or whatever mode I think I'll need.

They're great!

I don't know which model I have (won it in a drawing a couple years ago).

The tube (body?) unscrews into two halves, so you can use either two or four CR123 batteries.

As I recall; the difference in using half or all was 540 lumens/600+lumens, so I just use the half size.

It fits in a pocket easily, and lights everything up like a dang car headlight. It also gets pretty hot if left on on high for more than a few minutes (has four brightness settings, and defaults to the lowest setting when the batteries get low).

I use it at camp during hunting season, and it's my night stand light year round.
