For the perfect EDC light that is very powerful yet an easy fit in your pocket, you cannot go wrong with either of these lights. Both have a single tail switch to turn the light on/off and then a side switch to change the modes. The big difference between the PD35 and the UC35 (V1) will be the fact that the Fenix UC35 (V1) contains the battery included in the package and then is also rechargeable. With this feature, the UC35 (V1) takes the trophy home for me since you don't have to worry about taking the battery out to charge, it comes with everything you need to get started and then is a great fit in your hand and pocket.
