Fenix E30R Flashlight Review

Today I have in my hands a new light by Fenix.  It’s the E30R, and it’s essentially a 18650 version of the E18R, which I liked quite a bit.  It’s also quite a bit like the LD30, which I said would be better if it was only an e-switch light, not a dual switch light.  The E30R is basically the LD30 as an e-switch only light.  (So I already expect to like it!)

Fenix E18R Flashlight Review

I’m pleased to have another Fenix light review.  This is a brand that seems underrepresented in (at least “my”) reviews, and I hope to get to reviewing more of them.  This is another small light, using a 16340 cell, with built in magnetic charging.  Read on!
