Most of you are probably familiar with the long discontinued Fenix E01. It was a lot of enthusiast’s favorite keychain light that had a long running CPF thread with over 800 posts dedicated to it. The light even had it’s own cult fanbase that got together on BLF to organize the Sofirn C01, an E01 clone.
Many were disappointed when the original E01 was discontinued so you may be glad to hear that Fenix released the E01 v2.0, a modernized take on the E01.
