Xtar has a bunch of new chargers out, including this update to a previous model. This is the VC2S, which steps up the game from the original VC2 by adding an S!! Maybe more, but read on to find that info out!
Here's another Sofirn light - one not meant to be a barn burner, but just a solid performer in general. It's an 18650 light, with on-board charging. Read on!
Killzone Flashlights has in stock (for now?) lights labeled 219b, in the awesome BLF-348 style. Read on to see if that turns out to be true, and how this light works out.
Phil from the Kickstarter program for the Backnife sent me a message that he'd like to send one of his products out for a look. I have been interested in ceramic knives for a while, so I said sure! A ceramic box cutter, neat!
I already reviewed this light once. That time, it was the BLF Q8. I liked that light then. I saw that Sofirn had a version of that light, and it was rumored that they manufactured the original BLF Q8, so I wanted to see if this version was "close enough." Read on to find out!
I have in for review a couple of 20700 cells. I asked for these because I expect that in the near future, more flashlights will begin to accept this size, and I want to be prepared! Also I just like testing cells. This is the Imren 3200mAh 25A/40A Flat Top 20700 Cell.
Another Nitecore enters the mix! This is a tube light with an indicating switch and on-board charging. This one adds an interesting thing to the list though: waterproof charge port! Read on!
Here's a review of another Thrunite. In truth, and as I just reviewed the TN42, this review will be much the same as that review, but with more consideration for the battery pack (which is the main/only difference). I liked the regular TN42, so let's see how the TN42c v2 pans out!
I knew when I reviewed the Klarus Mi1C aspheric that I wanted to review these 'nicer metal' versions with the reflector. FastTech send this titanium version, and I'm pleased to put it through the paces!
I like this keyboard as much as I expected to. It has the comfort of a laptop board (if you find that comfortable; at the very least for me, it's my usual board). The caps are appropriately labeled with useful labels. I don't love the very clicky switches, but that's personal preference. I found the bluetooth to be not quite as reliable as the Anne Pro (which for me works perfectly). Overall though, I'm quite impressed with the board!
I was fortunate to continue the discourse with RovyVon, and they sent two more of these tiny Aurora keychain lights. This time it's the A2 and A3. I'm reviewing them together because they really only differ in body material. But they're different from the A5 I already reviewed in that they don't have secondary emitters. Read on to see how they act!
To be frank, I've asked for this light for ages, from multiple sources. Always got a response of 'it's not in season' or something like that. Fortunately, the awesome guys at illumn.com send this watershed thrower to me, along with a few cells, (which I reviewed here.) Needless to say, I'm super excited to have this light, and glad to put it through it's paces, even though it's been out for a while.
Today I'm having a look at the Nitecore BR35, a bicycle flashlight. It's meant for handlebar mount, and had all the parts required. It has a built in battery, and on-board charging! There's a lot going on in this light, so read on!
This lantern came to my attention through many discussions about how great it was. I wasn't initially interested, but I asked GearBest to send one over. Zanflare is the GearBest housebrand, and they obliged my request! Here's my review of this cool little lantern.
Here's another new Olight! This is a very simple little cr123 light, billed as "tactical." I've been using it for a while; read on for more thoughts!
Another Sofirn for review! This time it's a small AA/14500 version, with a mechanical tail switch. Thanks to Sofirn for sending this light for review.
Thrunite has a new headlamp on the market and it's a beast! It's the TH30, which claims an incredible 3350 lumens, and is a complete package type light. Read on!
Illumn recently released a low cost protected 18650 - an LG MJ1 no less! I asked for a set for testing, and Illumn agreed. So here's my second cell testing!
I've been asking for this little charger from Nitecore for quite a while, and they finally obliged. I use a Canon camera, and this little charger is perfect for me!
