The Fenix PD25 flashlight is powered by 1 x CR123 single use or 1 x RCR123 (also known as a 16340) Li-ion rechargeable battery. For a limited time, the torch is being supplied with a free micro USB rechargeable 16340 battery! The cell is a Fenix ARB-L16-700U and has a built-in micro USB port to eliminate the need for a separate external charger.
The PD25 has several innovative design features to ensure practical and efficient use. The torch has an intelligent drive circuit which automatically recognises the type of battery installed, plus reverse polarity protection to guard against incorrect installation of the battery. There is a low voltage warning to remind you to replace or recharge the battery when the power gets low.
The flashlight has a maximum output of 550 lumens (when using a Li-ion battery) from the Cree XP-L V5 LED and a maximum beam distance of 130 metres.
The Fenix PD25 has a smooth reflector and a toughened ultra-clear glass lens with anti-reflective coating. The metal side switch controls the brightness selection and the forward clicky tail cap switch controls the on/off.

If you are OK with buying C123 batteries then this is a great light for size vs performance ratio.
