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 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!
I'm waiting on amazon inventory to post another Sofirn review, so they sent out the SP31 V2.0 for me to wrap in the meantime. Here's that review. It's an 18650, dual switch tube light! Read on!
Sometimes items show up that I don't really know much about, and didn't really plan on reviewing. This is one of those items. Fortunately it's a flashlight too, so I can certainly evaluate that aspect of it.... The rest I'll mostly leave to photos to describe.
Anyone reading this site probably knows about the throw King, the BLF GT. Recently Lumintop made a little brother, the BLF GT Mini. This was an instant buy for me, and today I have a little review of it!
There's another entry in the .... let's call it the "USB dongle charger" list. This is the Nitecore LC10, which is similar to other dongle chargers, but adds a few new features! There's an in-line lantern, and the poles are reversible on this charger. Read on for more!
The RovyVon lights have been popping up over and over, so I reached out to RovyVon on amazon about some review units. I'd hoped to get a sampling of various iterations, but in the end RovyVon agreed to send the GITD version, the A5.
Today I have a light I've been geeked up about for a while now. Lumintop sent one to me for review, and I put it through the paces. Here's the review of the Lumintop Geek! It has Nichia!!
What I have today is another Lumintop, in a long line of Lumintop reviews. This is one I've been excited about, because it's Nichia and brass. Unfortunately, Lumintop didn't want to send brass or titanium, but I'm not going to hold that against them. 🙂 Here's the Lumintop IYP365 in aluminum, with a Nichia emitter.
A while back, I reviewed a Wowtac light. That was the BSS V3. Wowtac got in touch with me about a new light they are releasing; it's a two cell 18650 mid range thrower. It's the A4. Read on for more!
My list of XTAR items reviewed includes many chargers, but only one light. But they have out a new light. It's a dive light, with an interesting switch. I'm no diver, but I did put the light through the normal paces. Here's that review!
Here's one of those random reviews of a light (and items) that I purchase myself, and am completely free to say what I want. (That's a joke; I say what I want about all items I review, no matter how I get them.) This is a light I've eyeballed for ages, but never ponied up the money for. I had a failed purchase through another site, so I decided to use that money for this light. It's the Oveready Lava P60 host. I paired it with two drop ins; a 371d p60 triple drop in, and an Oveready DIP 8-mode 219c drop in. I'm excited to have this light, and glad to put forth this review!
Today I have another Sofirn light. I've reviewed a couple before and I find them to be good values. Let's see how this 18650 EDC style light stacks up!
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!
