Vortex TX100 and TX200 Flashlight Review

Vortex contacted me out of the blue one day, about these review lights.  I wasn't terribly interested except that 1) their lights have orange accents and 2) the lights have a charging base.  Normally that might not be a big deal but as I understood it, the light would come on if there was a power disconnect to the base.  That's a pretty big deal.  Read on to see if that's how things went!

Nitecore Concept 2 Flashlight Review

Nitecore has released a second in their "Concept" series.  This is the Concept 2.  A four cell, four emitter with on-board charging and an indicating switch.  It looks pretty spectacular on paper, especially when it's noted that this tiny light is Nitecore's highest output light to date!  Let's see how it breaks down.

Wuben TO10R Flashlight Review

Another light from Fasttech!  This time it's a new brand for me; Wuben.  Wuben says on their website that they've been in the flashlight market for over 30 years.  They make quite a few lights I hope to eventually get to test, but for now it's the TO10R, a 16340 triple with on-board charging!

JETBeam BR10 GT Bicycle Flashlight Review

When I saw this light, I immediately knew it was one I wanted to see in person.  Knowing it's made by JETBeam made it even more appealing; I've reviewed a bunch of their lights and typically really like them.  I liked this one for it's shape, to be honest, but as a biker it's nice to have a dedicated light made by a reputable company.  

Xtar PB2 Charger / Powerbank Review

I reached out to Xtar regarding a couple of their chargers.  Particularly the PB2, their newest charger/powerbank.  Looks awesome on paper!  They also sent over a Dragon, which I'll have some thoughts on later.  For now, the PB2.

Lumintop ODL20C Flashlight Review

I've been getting more Lumintop lights lately and that's something I'm pleased with!  They make high quality lights, and fit some nice categories.  This is the ODL20C, a 26650 thrower, with built in charging!  Read on!

Imalent RT35 Flashlight Review

Imalent has impressed me with some of their lights (Hello: DX80) and less so with others (the capacitive switch lights).  So I was excited when I saw this light get listed on FastTech, and FastTech agreed to send one out for review.  This is a very new light, and I'm very excited to have one for testing!

Nitecore LA30 Lantern Review

Nitecore has a new lantern out, with some unusual features.  This is the LA30, which has an internal pouch cell (lipo), and can also run off 2 AA sized cells, too.  It's a nice combo, and has red and white emitters, too!

Nitefox UW360 Floodlight+Spotlight Review

This is a light I'd never have asked for but got in a package with another light (The UT25).  I liked the UT25 just fine, and in fact have liked other Nitefox lights just fine too.  This is an unusual light from their line; let's see how it stacks up.

Nitefox UT25 Flashlight Review

I've handled a few Nitefox lights (here are those reviews).  Generally I've been impressed especially at their cost.  The UT25 is one of the newer offerings.  A dual switch 'tactical' light.  Here's the review!

Maratac PCL Brass Keychain Flashlight Review

Everyone probably knows by now I enjoy brass lights.  All kinds, all sizes.... I recently acquired the Maratac PCL in Brass.  I don't like these as keychain lights, but they're fun lights to keep around.  They call it the Personal Carry Light, and here are my thoughts!

Rofis R1 Flashlight Review

Rofis is one of those brands I haven't known for long, but I've by-and-large liked a whole lot.  Recently I had the MR70, and that's going to be my go-to travel light.  Rofis has a thing for making lights with rotating heads, and this is another example.  This version, however, adds on-board charging!

Olight H16 Wave Headlamp Review

Olight's released another headlamp, in the same vein as the HS2, which I've previously reviewed here.  I liked the HS2 (still have it and use it often), but it's a very runner-specific headlamp.  The H16 Wave is an interesting development, because it's adds a "Wave," 'hands free' feature.  Let's see how it all works for this light!
