Cerakote vs. Digital Camo? A quick overview!

The Fenix PD35 V2.0 Digital Camo Edition is a digital camouflage painted flashlight coming directly from Fenix. It's a great opportunity to get your hands on a unique and limited edition flashlight that is different than any of the Cerakoted Elite series models that we have already for sale. And the best part about it is that it is the brand new Fenix PD35 V2.0, whereas the cerakote series models are all the Fenix PD35 Tactical Edition.

The upgraded PD35 V2.0, has a maximum output of a 1000 lumens as well as 4 other brightness levels, plus strobe mode. It includes a high mode of 350 lumens, medium of 150 lumens, low at 50 lumens, and eco at 3 lumens. We're really excited about this release because people were always asking us for new and different unique designs for their flashlights. Now, Fenix store did implement a bit of this with our Fenix Elite series models. The PD35 Tactical units ranging in all sorts of different colors and styles with a great professionally done cerakote coating. These are the Elite series lights that are well designed and have a professional cerakote finish. That not only provides awesome additional durability and protection, but it also offers some amazing customizable options.

So you have many different choices of patterns and styles to choose from. One of the things that we've been hearing about with the Elite Series Fenix flashlights are requests to see the Fenix PD35 V2 Tactical Flashlight to also be included in the cerakoting process. Well, the problem with that is that we have not been able to safely cerakote the unit without compromising the side switch. The great thing about this new digital camo edition is that this is just a digital camo special painting finish rather than cerakoting. So it is able to be applied to this to this light where a cerakote finish could not be applied.

There's just a little bit more than the standard version of the PD35 V2.0 and we think that it would really make an excellent addition to your tactical flashlight collection. Especially if you have a PD35 tactical in the Fenix Elite series from Then this would be a great addition as well. We do not currently have any digital camo options with the Fenix elite series.

As I said before, the digital camouflage on the PD35 V2 is not the same as the cerakoting that you will find on the Fenix PD35 Tactical flashlight. That just means that with the Fenix elite series Cerakoted units, you will find both a design improvement as well as a extra durability and protection. With the Fenix PD35 V2.0 Digital camo you get the paint job. There is no additional protection offered a since it's just a painted rather than a fully cerakoted protected flashlight. This tactical flashlight the PD35 V2 digital camo edition features all the same options for brightness and output. Selection and power as the regular PD35 V2 offers including a side switch for brightness and strobe selection as well as a tail switch that features and momentary on or click option. The side which is actually made of metal. It also features the battery level indicator on the side switch metering for different levels of green, a constant green light, a flashing green light, constant red light, and red flashing light.

As with almost all of our other Fenix tactical flashlights that you can find here on The Fenix PD35 V2 digital camo edition takes the 18650 rechargeable battery or can also use two CR123 non rechargeable batteries. This of course is always a benefit, this flashlight gives you an option of different batteries to use, especially if you were in a situation where you cannot a recharge and 18650 and you just need a battery. You always have that option of using those non rechargeable CR123 batteries as an added bonus. So you have a little bit of assurance and peace of mind knowing that you will not be left in the dark just because you can't recharge your battery.
