Fenix rates its lights using ANSI specification standards. Rated lumens are OTF (out the front) and represent what the light delivers. Many others, and most inexpensive ones, rate by emitter lumens which is total LED output. When that light is redirected out the front, light is lost so OTF lumens are always less than emitter lumens. High quality lights strive for high efficiency of light transmission... accomplished with high quality reflectors, coated high quality glass lenses etc. That's a Fenix. Bottom line is: Don't compare the specifications on this light to others unless you're sure they're using ANSI standards as well. That 200 lumen flashlight you're considering may be emitter rated and has only a 70% efficiency (or less)...so its OTF lumens is actually 140 (or less). When Fenix says the LD25 is a 180 lumen light...that's truly what you're shining on the hillside. LD25 beam distance is rated for 390 feet. Also, be advised that Fenix is an industry leader in the efficiency department. Compare their runtimes against competitors at equal lumen output.
A major plus to the LD25 is its mode selection coupled with two settings in each...and the memory of both mode and lumen setting while turned off. This allows you to preselect a mode...then have easily accessible high and lower light options in each available at the touch of the tactical button. With most other lights you have to run through all the settings to select the setting you want. Some may remember this setting when shut off, but if you want a higher or lower setting you have to turn it on and run through the other settings as well.
Hopefully, that provides a bit of additional information on the light, but for those willing to read on, I'll offer a bit more. Outdoor flashlights are in a different league than home versions. A much higher standard must exist. They must be impervious to some pretty extreme weather and have some capability of handling unintended abuse. Miles into the backcountry and you're stuck with the light you brought. If a light fails, you won't be lighting a candle or heading to the store for a new one or more batteries. MY requirements in an outdoor flashlight are based on personal experience, which I'll largely spare you, and the flashlights I and others have used. YOUR use and experience and the resulting requirements and opinions may differ. I not only respect that, I expect it.
An overview: I'm a hunter. I'm not a "flashaholic" but do have a working knowledge of flashlights. To me, a flashlight is a tool...an essential and potentially lifesaving one. I upgrade them for significant improvements, not for bragging rights. I'm a Montanan who's spent many years hiking its rugged wild country in the dark..., much of it off trail and frequently alone. I'm now in my late 60s and owe it to my wife, myself, and others to be a little less adventurous and keep a companion within signaling distance. However, I'm still in some pretty remote areas at times and a good flashlight is essential.
I've learned that long runtime (low lumen LED)is absolutely critical in an outdoor light...it's a survival issue. 5 to 10 lumens (the old AA Minimag incandescent had about 7) is adequate on a defined trail, provides runtime, and preserves some night vision. About 50 lumens with decent throw is good when moving cross country in rugged terrain (I've used two different 45 lumen LEDs). A bright light is useful for safety and to avoid backtracking around obstacles (cliffs, rockslides, streams, etc.) and for search in emergencies. Incandescent lights are too unreliable and inefficient to even consider in today's LED age. Lithium battery lights (CR123A) are great lights but batteries are expensive, largely unavailable in rural stores, and good rechargeables are lacking. My wants: 1. Neutral white LED...A pleasing, warmer color outdoors. Commonly available cold white makes you feel even colder on a cold night. 2. No battery carrier (prone to breakage, difficult to load at night) 3. 2-AA battery design. Compact with decent performance (nearly double the mAh of a 3 AAA), loads batteries easily in the dark, offers readily available low cost alkalines in emergencies and LSD rechargeables for general use. 4. Easily accessible modes with low and high lumen settings which are easily selectable before the light is turned on. 5. A low lumen setting about 5 to 10 lumens, a medium setting of about 50 lumens, and a high setting of over 100 lumens (the more the better...runtime not essential here. Used mainly for momentary on). 6. Good amount of throw (distance viewing) but not at the expense of decent flood at close range. 7. Reliable and durable...Quality construction and design...glass lens (plastic scratches), waterproof, shock protected, and the availability of a holster for general protection. 7. A lanyard attachment. 8. A tactical switch to allow momentary on and signaling...and 9. Not totally budget breaking.
To my knowledge, no single flashlight today has all of those wants in their specifications. For starters, most manufacturers today don't see a low lumen, long runtime setting as being as critical as I do and there is a distinct lack of neutral white lights out there. Few allow switching between high and low lumen settings while the flashlight is turned off. When the LD25 appeared last fall, I noted it had all three of those "wants" and the rest as well, but the 3 lumen setting was actually lower than what I was hoping for. However, I felt that 3 lumens, although perhaps not ideal, would still do the job on a trail and it had a hefty runtime. The light was actually a bit less costly than budgeted for (A quality light isn't cheap...I was spending nearly twice the cost of the last light). I went for it.
When it arrived, I anxiously checked it out. Then, a pleasant surprise: I believe the 3 lumen setting on the LD25, at least on my light, is a bit underrated. To my eyes, it appears to be in the 5 to 10 lumen range... exactly what I was hoping for. Runtime remained critical to me so I put an ammeter on the LD25 at 3 lumens and it pulled 38 mAh from a set of Eneloops. A set of 2000 mAh batteries obviously has less runtime than a set of 2500...however, that's still about 52 hrs of continuous use.
All "wants" fulfilled with this one. I'm one "happy camper"...or, better said, "happy hiker".
It's solidly built. Beam has a nice warm color and provides excellent throw yet has enough spill to light the ground at your feet(essential in moving through rough country in the dark). In camping mode, the 3 lumen setting (see above) is plenty adequate for trail hiking, the 45 in outdoor is great for general cross country. 85 lumens in the former and 180 lumens in the latter are available with a small twist of the head...with the flashlight on or off. 180 lumens will really light up the night and reach out into it. It's blinding at close range...an amazing amount of light from such a compact unit.
It's shock tested for about a five foot drop and waterproof to over 6 feet. Double O rings seal the tail cap. It'll work after I drop it in any stream I could retrieve it from (no...I have never done that but I've dealt with the unforeseen before).
The plastic grip is indeed warmer than metal and provides a solid grip. However, the big advantage to me is the fuller grip making an easier carry with gloves...and when it's cold, I have them on.
Very unlikely the light could be accidently locked on as it requires a solid push of the button into the recessed tailcap. However, to double guarantee no accidental turn on during transport, the light can be "locked off". Unscrew the tailcap slightly and the light won't function...and with those double O rings the tailcap position will stay put.
A possible minus to some would be the holster. The lanyard has a large button reinforcing it. With a lanyard, the light will not fit tail down into the holster. Not an issue for me as, although I use a lanyard, I prefer to carry a light head down for lens protection and this one allows it. (Note: Most compact AAs have a larger head than body...their holster is too small to fit a head down carry). The holster design is a plus to me...not a negative.
It has a round body so will roll on a flat surface. However, install the lanyard and the issue is solved.
Would I change anything? Well, yes. For me, I consider the Rescue mode to be pretty useless...a dedicated SOS signal is needless in general (won't go into details on the why here) and the 85 lumen setting is available in the camping mode. I think a better choice would be a tactical strobe opposite the SOS for the "rescue" mode and relabeling it to "emergency". Those feeling the need for the SOS setting would still have it and the light would have had more crossover appeal to the tactical light crowd. Plus, the strobe could be used for general signaling as SOS is only for true emergencies. However, having more than you want can't be construed as a negative.
A possible major Con, is the warranty...it's a 2 year. Purchase one from a dealer and they do the repair. From a non-dealer, and that includes Amazon, that repair is in China with no intermediary...the difficulties that poses are obvious. Fenix has a top notch reputation for quality so odds are you'd not need that warranty, but it is definitely a consideration. You may wish to buy from Amazon via one of their flashlight dealers (verify warranty service on the dealers website). The few dollars more they may (or may not) charge may provide some peace of mind.
I have no association with Fenix and am not a dealer. If Maglite had a decent competitor to the LD25, I would have bought it.... U.S. made with a lifetime warranty. I've used Maglites for years, respect their quality and reliability and consider their new LEDs a good choice for general use. However, although certainly usable outdoors, for my needs, the AA Multi-Mode (have it), XL100, and XL50 represent serious compromises. Although I hate to say it, Maglite is simply not in the same league as the Fenix...at least not yet.
Review wound up longer than I expected. Hope it was helpful. Enough said!
The LD25... Highly recommended for the outdoor user!!
Good things about the LD25 for us is the slightly thicker handle and grippy texture of that handle. Most 2 AA flashlights are much smaller. The LD25 is noticeably thicker than others, which makes them feel more substantial and easier to hang onto and use. The grippy material coating it also probably ruggedizes the flashlight a bit when compared to exposed aluminum handles on others. This flashlight is simple to operate. You do not have to memorize 12 different operation options to use it.
This light is nearly exactly 1 inch at the front, and therefore CAN be used in 1 inch flashlight mounts for weapons. These mounts are normally associated with C123 battery flashlights, but this AA flashlight IS an option for use using these mounts on your shotgun or AR-15 because of this... however it is big and heavy in comparison to most 123 weapon lights. I have this flashlight setup on my heavier weapons, like my home defense shotgun and AR-10. Again, I did this for AA battery compatibility.
Possible negatives of the LD25 for some... The first one would be size. This is not a compact "EDC" type flashlight. It is oversized compared to other 2 AA flashlights. Do not get it to carry in your pocket, it is more for home or camping or disaster preparedness use. The grippy material of its handle would likely be maddening in pocket usage as well. The second possible negative might be price. There are cheaper alternatives out there. Third might be simplicity. While I listed that as a positive, others will view it as a negative and pan this flashlight as lacking in features compared to lights like the much smaller & cheaper 2 AA Preon.
