Fenix E15

Compact twist head every day carry

The classic Fenix E15 is a little light that is back in a big way! This light has been re-tooled from the ground up, and now has a massive 450 Lumens of output, up from 120. The light still features the popular twist head interface that allows users to turn it on or off and cycle through multiple modes with a simple twist. Most notable this light is pocket sized, measuring under 2.6 inches, making it a perfect EDC for anyone that doesn't want to be weighed down by their high power LED flashlight.


450 Lumens of LED lighting power

A huge improvement to the lighting power of the E15, it now features a CREE XP-G2 R5 LED, emitting a crushing 450 lumens. The light level is of course adjustable and can be set to 110, 50 or even an 8 lumen low mode. While the E15 excels at indoor and close range use, it is also great for outdoor activities with a beam that can reach up to 433 Feet in dark conditions! A deep reflector and tempered glass lens with specialized coating help to aid the impressive light output from this little powerhouse.

Anodized aluminum body

Corrosion and scratch resistant

If you're carrying around a flashlight, it better be able to take some rough handling. The E15 is packed with features that will keep it safe from bumps, drops, splashes or whatever comes its way. The light is made of lightweight aerospace grade aluminum that has further been hard anodized to resist corrosion or scratches. For harsh weather the light is gasket sealed, earning an IPX-8 Waterproof rating. The glass lens is tempered and protects the solid state LED from severe impacts. Don't let its size fool you, the E15 is one tough lighting tool!

Compact, Reliable, Capable Go-To Outdoor Light
December 31, 2016
The 2016 E15 pretty much checks all the right boxes for me. It's compact, so compact it could be an EDC fitting into your jeans 5th pocket. it's very well made and well warranted. It's reliable, given its purely mechanical twisty switch operation and simpler electronics. It's quite powerful when powered by a 16340 in Turbo mode, and surprisingly bright in Turbo with a CR123A, too. It's low, medium, and high modes are well spaced for general use outdoors and indoors (although many would ask for a much lower low for in-tent night vision preserving illumination). It's throw in turbo is quite good whether with 16340 or CR123A considering the physical size of the light, yet its beam dispersion is wider than many giving a good field of view. The E15 tail stands with key ring, too, even with a 3mm paracord lanyard looped through.
I've accessorized the E15 adding a Fenix AOD-S diffuser, which fits well once a small Ranger Band (or small, wide rubber band) is snapped onto its bezel to add the extra few mm and grip to hold the diffuser securely. The AOD-S makes the E15 a great area light for camping or indoors during a night time power outage. A Nitecore NFG23 fits on as well, providing a green output for helping to preserve night vision during those late night strolls to the facilities when camping. The E15 can even become a headlamp when teamed with Nite Ize Headband with it's elastic loop retainer.
The E15 doesn't quite make the EDC for me, although I'm tempted - I prefer a smaller AAA light, the Fenix E05 for that role, and keep a Chapstick Cap in the same pocket to turn that into an area light when needed. But the E15 is a permanent Camping companion, along with the AOD-S, NFG23, and Nite Ize Headband making the E15 an area light at camp, a late night walk light, a trail headlamp, as well as an all-around utility flashlight.
ProsVery compact size yet surprisingly strong performance Very well built, materials and workmanship Output modes well spaced for general utility use Good throw in Turbo for either RCR123A/16340 or CR123A use Takes Fenix AOD-S diffuser and Nitecore NFx23 filters using a small Ranger Band at the bezel Fits Nite Ize Headband to be used as a headlamp
ConsWhile the output modes are well spaced for general utility use, and I'd rather not give up any of the levels (Low 8, Medium 50, High 110, Turbo 270/450 Lumens), I, too, would enjoy an ADDED moonlight level of about 1 Lumen, so the E15 could be used as that one or two man tent low level light hanging from the overhead loop or used for that late night walk without compromise of night vision.

Perhaps An Ultimate Just-In-Case Light
December 22, 2016
Pretty strong words, eh? Well the 2016 E15 pretty much checks all the boxes when it comes to either a BOB or Glove Box Light, or even an EDC Light. Durable construction, Small size, Twisty Switch for zero drain and press momentary actuation (either by compressing the head to the body or pressing the head to the side using thumb pushing toward the forefinger), LMHT modes with good utility mode spacing, and the use of either one CR123A primary cell or RCR123A/16340 Lithium Ion rechargeable cell. With a suitable "Ranger Band" surrounding the head, the E15 accepts the Fenix AOD-S Diffuser, and also then accepts the Nitecore NF(RGB) 23mm filters.
Certainly many prefer tail switch, and many prefer side switch for EDC uses that are more tactical or surveillance in nature, but many also find side and tail switches to fail over time or activate in pocket or holster, too. The E15's size, twist full off, max brightness & throw, useful brightness modes, and potential for accessories give it advantages in the category of a stowed Just-In-Case Light that can't be denied.
Of course it does require CR123A's, and while finding an economical brick and mortar source of supply is doubtful, good CR123A cells are less expensive from Battery Junction than their L91 AA Lithium Iron counterparts while providing more VA (volt-amps) of energy to the LED driver, which generally turns into a longer useful run time per dollar. Admittedly the survivalist would choose standard AA size, drawing on a broader selection of cell availability and chemistry. Unfortunately Fenix has no Twisty equivalent to the E15, but does offer a Tail Switch E12 alternative (NiMH, LiFe, Alky, no 14500 LiIon).
Finally, the E15 is a value in cost compared to equivalent output lights from other makers.
ProsSmall physical size Excellent build quality Reliable, Durable, Zero Drain Twisty Switch Operation Great utility mode spacing CR123A and 16340/RCR123A single cell Strong Turbo Brightness and Long Throw with 16340/RCR123A cell Can accept AOD-S diffuser and Nitecore NF(RGB) 23mm Filters using a Ranger Band or wide rubber band gasket Great value for the dollar for performance and reliability
ConsThe Ultimate would be an equivalent design using a single AA size including 14500's for Turbo.

Would be 5 star of it had a tail switch. Takes 2 hands to turn on and switch brightness modes.

A great little light
September 3, 2017
A great light to have as a backup, tucked in a jacket or jeans pocket. Good power, battery life and throw. Only drawback is twist-head turn on. Inconvenient.
ProsGood power, battery life, and throw
ConsTwist-head turn on
