Many a flashlight lit up our nominations rounds, but the Fenix brand, specifically the PD35, shone brightest, locking up your vote for best LED flashlight.

Stupid bright with lots of spill (960 lumens), with multiple modes depending on desired brightness or battery run time, but still super small enough to carry in a pocket. Very rugged and high quality, even down to the threads and o-rings. Also takes multiple types of batteries, both rechargeable and not. - Anti-Star Super-Christ

Back in 2012, another Fenix took fourth place in Gizmodo’s Best LED Flashlight roundup.
