New fenix E16, only 51 mm and automobile ultraflat lens

In Battery Junction website.

Very expensive, only 51 mm, interesting, the new lens perhaps will be a new paradigm?

And…¡Neutral white!

What is battery junction charging? Fenix has it listed at $39.95, which sounds reasonable to me.

Fresnel lens? Good idea, but not a revolution of any kind. How much can it save, 2 mm?
ADDED: On the Fenix site there are better pictures. It’s not a Fresnel but TIR.

Looks good. Only problem is how to turn on-off is close to strobe.

Take care of your flashlight and your flashlight will take care of you.

Can anyone explain to me how does such flat lens work? Surely looks like some TIR, but the angles just don’t seem right…
ADDED: I see in the decription that it’s “Coated with Al+UV”. So maybe it’s a hybrid reflector?
ADDED2:
Gaggione LLR07M looks somewhat similar (though it’s a bit larger):

Still not quite so flat though….

Threads about new flashlights without a picture are annoying.

Looks nice, especially the side-clicky, but for half the price, I think I’ll still stick with my Jet-II. Smile

500lm vs 700lm, ~50mm vs ~70mm(?)… dunno.

For me at least, smaller just means easier to lose. Facepalm

Thanks for posting. I’ve run out of my EDC BLF-348 stock, so I’m looking for replacements.
