Lantern Led Lenser P2, specifications, review and experience.
As already stated earlier, the requirements for a survival flashlight are obvious. Small size, affordable battery, moisture protection, long service life, rugged case. And the P2 flashlight of the German company Led Lenser satisfies all these requirements. It will be discussed.

When buying in a cardboard box along with a flashlight, you will find several more pleasant trinkets: a waist nylon case, a small carabiner, a lanyard and a removable clip.
I’ll tell you more about these little things later.. I searched for a long time, tried to choose a small convenient flashlight for all occasions, which you could always carry with you. That is an EDC flashlight. And the little Led Lenser P2 became a real find for me.
The head of the flashlight is equipped with a focusing lens. So with its modest 11 lumens, and a half volts inside, it shines really bright for its size. They also deprived him of glow modes, the ability to turn a beam of light into an even circle, like a theater searchlight, does not count. Although this flashlight is not needed.
equipment, and will help out in any dark situation.
Battery. The requirements for the survival lamp were written: on one battery, as affordable and affordable as possible. But much more affordable and cheaper? One AAA battery. It is always possible to carry a spare battery. And even two. By the way, P2 shines for a really long time. If you use a high-quality battery, then the declared time (40 hours) it will work, and may even exceed this plan. Squeezes out all the juices from the battery and shines to the last.
The case is made of aluminum, is firmly folded, and looks durable. Fell from the height of human growth on asphalt, remained safe and sound.
Contacts are gold-plated, not oxidized. Although there is an opinion on the Internet that this is not real gilding, but only copper. An interesting fact inside the flashlight contact + is also made by a spring. That is, the battery inside the case is clamped by springs on both sides, which eliminates the shaking of the battery inside the case.
A button is also good. Sits confidently, pressed well. It can be squeezed to a click to quickly highlight something, or to signal. This makes it possible to use Morse code as well.. The cover was pleasantly pleased. Made to fame, with a company tag. It is possible to hang not only on the waist belt, but also on the slings of the M.O.L.L.E system.
Well, the clip. Many people think that the clip is not reliable enough. At first glance, the metal of which it is made is really soft. But I quite often use it as a forehead, fixing a flashlight with a clip to the peak of the cap. For additional insurance, in the visor I made a hole on the side, put a small carabiner there, and I fasten the flashlight there for the loop.
I can’t say that I was running with him, I’m sure that from this shaking he will fall down. However, to perform some painstaking work that requires the involvement of both hands, it is very good. The only, in my opinion, minus is the price. I bought it for 1300 rubles, although the network can be found for 950 and probably cheaper.
However, my subjective opinion is worth it. Great quality flashlight. I have been carrying it with me for a year now, and there were no complaints about it. There are certainly good alternatives. Phoenix e01, or the same little Maglight. But Led Lenser P2 is my choice.
