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 has recently released a couple of special edition small lights, the full copper TIP and TINI. While I've reviewed the TINI before, I thought a full copper version might warrant an updated review!
An update to he extremely popular Skilhunt H03 is the H03 RC. The RC version adds charging, and not much else. It's a very nice package; read on for more!
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.
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!
I, like everyone else, recently reviewed the Ultratac A1. When I agreed to that one, I also asked for this light, the Ultratac K18 Mini Brass. Mike at Ultratac agreed, and here's my review of this tiny little light!
Olight has a new tiny keychain light out. In the meantime of me asking for the X9R, Olight wanted to send out the I1R and I3T. I've already reviewed the I3T, so here's the I1R!
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.
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.
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 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!
Thrunite's just come out with a new version of their "Catapult" series. This is Version 6! I'm interested to put it through some paces, and see how it stands out!
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!
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.
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!
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!
Here's another Nitecore headlamp; GearBest sent this one over. It's a [multi] emitter light with an indicating switch and red secondary. Most importantly, it's a high CRI light!
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!
I've had a run of keychain lights lately. And today I have another one by MecArmy. I recently reviewed the SGN7, and today it's the SGN3, a much smaller keychain light. This one has three emitters (white, red, and uv).
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!
