Flashlight Fenix Digital L2D Premium Q5 arrived in a nice two-section box. In which lay the flashlight itself, instructions, warranty, cover, wrist strap and what I want to note is a particularly spare button with two o-rings. A trifle, but nice.

The Fenix Digital L2D Premium Q5 flashlight has 6 power levels, which not only allows you to choose a compromise between brightness and operating time, but also makes it possible to use it as an emergency beacon that independently sends an SOS signal.

Before considering this lamp in more detail, I would like to note that he has an older brother. They look like in appearance, only the inscriptions on the heads are different and the button on the olive lantern is orange, and black on black. The older brother is the previous release with the Luxeon Rebel LED Premium 100 diode, now this diode is rare. Luminous efficiency is less, the spectrum (bin) is warmer, less focused, concentric circles are less noticeable, it illuminates better, less blinds. As an example. Left Premium (Q5) Cree 7090 XR-E LED, right Luxeon Rebel LED.
The Fenix Digital L2D Premium Q5 was used in two multi-day outputs. It justifies hopes and all the responsibilities assigned to it completely. The economy mode of 12 lumens is enough for almost everything. Very rarely, the second mode was used at 53 lumens, even less often at 107 lumens and 180 lumens did not turn on at all.
The strobe mode at night is very aggressive, even too much, according to the sensations of the subjects, the bunnies pass completely from 1 to 2 minutes. SOS mode is useful for signaling without operator intervention; it gives out points and dashes with a certain interval at a brightness of at least 50 lumens, allows you to orient them in the right direction or send a signal along the horizon.
The total (continuous) lamp operating time for eight days of two exits was at least 18 hours, the operating time for the modes was distributed approximately like this:
12 lumens 90% of the time
Everything else 10% of the time
Visually, no loss of brightness was noticed, most likely this is due to the option of digital adjustment of constant brightness. Test shots of the light from the Fenix Digital L2D Premium Q5 below. The distance from the lamp to the wall is 30 meters.
