Just a quick note to let you know. Because I used all the free media storage space here at zeroair.wordpress.com, I just went ahead and bought my own site! Head over to zeroair.org! I'll still be posting reviews and the occasional How Do I series, and I'm going to try to keep up the Fun... Continue Reading →
My first "real" cell charger was a Nitecore D4. Nitecore came close to replacing it a while back with the SC4, but they've certainly done it with these new two chargers - the USM2 and USM4. These chargers (most importantly?) fit 21700 cells, among other awesome features. Read on!
Nitecore is expanding their "keychain" light selection. This time it's with a bigger option, with 1000 lumen output, while retaining the dual switch interface.
I was lucky enough a while back to get in on a Sinner drop directly from Sinner himself. So this light came to me directly from United Arab Emirates. I was excited to snag it, but you don't have to get these that way. There is at least one site that drops these lights on occasion. This is my review of the Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight.
Here's a light I've been excited about since I reviewed a light for RovyVon initially. I since reviewed a couple more from the Aurora series (and like them!). I was clued in during the prototype phase, but have only just gotten the review sample. So here's my review of the RovyVon triple! The E300S!
I was in need of 18650s recently, and there was a great price on these Liitokala 30q cells at Aliexpress. I like 30q cells, and I like good prices, so I bought 8 of these cells. There was a bunch of discussion on BLF and places regarding whether these cells are "real" or not. Read on to find out!
Thrunite has a new light on the market. It's an 18650 light, with on-board charging, but boasts an incredible 2300 lumens. Read on to see how this light tests, and if it hits its claim!
In for review today is the Nitecore EC30. This builds on the Concept 1 platform, with a different switch. But what else is different? Read on!
I have a penchant for snagging things I don't need, which meet the criteria for things I like. I like brass triples. This light by VenomDD wasn't even on my radar, but I found a great price on a copy, so I snagged it. (Thanks for pointing me to it, u/emarkd!)
Yes, this is another triple. Another brass triple. Does it cut the mustard? Read on to find out!
I've reviewed many iterations of this light. I did the S42 not that long ago. And one of my very first reviews was of the Manker E14 (which I later sold, and hugely regretted selling).
This is yet another update on that platform, with 219c emitters, and some other improvements. Read on for more!
LiionWholesale sent a couple of their new cells for some testing. This is the new Samsung 50e, a 21700 li-ion cell. It's rated for 10A continuous discharge. Read on for performance graphs!
Another Acebeam review today! I do not have all that much experience with this brand, but what I have seen, I like. This is a medium range 18650-sized thrower, with on-board charging, and dual switch. Read on to see how it performs!
Believe it or not, I buy quite a few lights. More often than not those lights have Nichia emitters. In this case, the light has nine nichia emitters (and a few other type too). This light is by a new company on the block who's hitting quite hard. This is the FireFlies ROT66.
Going small is the big thing in 16340 lights lately, and Fenix has entered the game. The Fenix E16 is a tiny light - definitely the smallest 16340 light I've handled (and I'd guess the very smallest on the market). I've been using this one for a while, so read on for my thoughts!
After talking with the guys over at KillzoneFlashlights, and reviewing their 219b BLF-348, we got into some more serious discussions. They sent a few more lights. Two by Acebeam, and one of their own. Here's the first of those, the Acebeam EC65.
Wuben is still hitting the scene hard. I've reviewed a Wuben before, the TO10R. The build quality is great, and I was interested to see if Wuben would keep that trend going. They sent the E05, which I believe has just been released, and here's my review and test of it!
XTAR makes some great products, and have a massive line of chargers. Here are two new chargers, the D2 and D4. Very similar chargers, except one's a 2-bay, and one's a 4-bay. I think they could make great basic fast chargers, but I'm glad to test them to find out!
I tend to like Rofis lights. They're well made, very functional, and more often than not, just neat little lights. So I was excited when this MR30 showed up in the mail - the MR70 is still my go-to powerbank travel light. The MR30 is smaller with the same capacity, and loses the side light (which I never really used anyway). I'm excited to put it to the test!
While this is a light, it's not really a typical flashlight. And to be honest I've had it on a shelf to review for a while and I'm going to put it on the "Tuesday" (aka "not a flashlight") review day. So here are my thoughts on this little solar powered hanging light, the Zanflare SB-6039.
