Sofirn is continuing their media blitz, and I'm on the receiving end! This time it's the SF36, an 18650 medium-thrower.
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!
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.
Nitecore has a charger campaign going, and asked that I share this video on my site. I have used Nitecore charges for as long as I've been flashlighting, and I really like them indeed!
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 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!
I've reviewed a Liitokala charger before (the Lii-500). I liked that one, so I was excited to get the Lii-402, a simpler 4-bay charger by Liitokala. Read on for my thoughts and experiences!
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!
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 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!
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!
