Fenix E05 with XP-G R4 or R2 (XP-E?)

Fenix E05, R4 Edition with XP-G for 24.80 (with coupon cpf8)

Fenix E05, R2 Edition unknown emitter, maybe XP-E?, for 20.20 (with coupon cpf8)

 

30 Lumens is nothing to write home about... but an all flood AAA with those measurements... makes it interesting to me.

Also that revolving single dimmer switch is nice, if it works as intended.

4sevens is one of the few US based shops with world wide free shipping.

Specifications

  • Cree R2 or R4 LED
  • Max Lumens: 26 or 30 lumens
  • Mini-lens design, bright and gentle flood light
  • Exquisite and compact, fashionable and portable
  • Revolving single dimmer switch, operated by one hand conveniently
  • Powered by one AAA battery, high efficiency and energy conservation

Looks neat, but looks purposely restricted to 30 lumen and limited light pattern to avoid competition with their other overpriced products.

Silly question: 

In R4 "single dimmer switch" means on/off switch or variable switch regulation from 0 to 30 lumens?

I hoped for some kind of ramping... but it seems that it is only ON-OFF... bad choice of words Fenix...and I'm not interested anymore.

I wonder if it's that hard mechanically to make a light with on/off dedents and a variac in between. Seems like almost a freebie for cheapo lights. But perhaps the fit requires QC beyond what the typical chinese light factory does.
