When it comes to EDC flashlights, everyone has different needs. Some people just need a small light they can put on a keychain and forget about until they need it. The next person might need a dim but reliable flashlight that uses commonly found batteries like AA or AAA. Another person might need a work light for EDC with a magnetic tail or a right-angle light.

The spectrum of flashlights is broad and ever-widening. The upshot is that your standard EDC lights are getting better, brighter, and smaller with each iteration. Brands like Fenix are filling all the gaps that used to exist and making torches of all sorts for your everyday carry.

Below, you’ll find seven of Fenix’s best EDC flashlights available right now.
