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!

Liitokala Lii-S1 Single Bay Charger Review

Liitokala is known for nice products which tend to be reasonably priced.  This is their latest offering, an update to the Lii-100.  This is the Lii-S1, which has a digital display, and the option to work no matter the orientation of the cell.  A novel feature!  Read on for more.

ISDT C4 NiMH/Li-Ion Charger Review

I had seen this charger randomly around the internet and it looks so fancy.  I like fancy stuff.  It also looks like a very capable charger.  Here's my review of it.  I'll say up front (and this might be the best place, too) that this charger is is advanced enough that my typical charger-tester setup.  What I mean by that is the resistance in my usual setup got sensed by the charger and prevented higher current charging.

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!

Nitecore V2 Charger Review

I was on a long driving trip a while back and fighting for access to USB ports.  All while wanting to be able to charge 18650 cells (because I was using those cells in my Nitecore F2 for charging devices).  Now Nitecore comes out with the perfect product?  I'm pleased to have one from Nitecore Store for review! Read on, and hope you enjoy!

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!

Olight Ion Keychain Flashlight Review

Olight recently released a 10 Year Anniversary light.  I don't imagine this will become a normal production light, and as such that's how I'll evaluate it.  It's an unusual keychain light, with glass front and back, an integrated cell, and on-board charging.  It's the Olight Ion, and here are my thoughts!

Olight X7R Marauder Flashlight Review

Olight has iterated the X7, and added charging.  I reviewed the X7 ages ago (back in 2016), and was generally pleased.  Let's see how (if?) Olight has improved on this venerable design, by adding recharging and an indicating side switch.
