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!
Here's another in Nitecore's new run of lights. This one has an interesting feature - an angle(able) head. Otherwise, it's a nice iteration of the MT - Multi Task - series of Nitecore lights.
After talking to Lumintop (directly), I've gotten a light for review from them. I hope to have more - they make a lot of stuff, including much of the BLF forum lights. They sent a tiny headlamp. An AAA light, with a magnet and an orange switch and headband. Great combo! Let's see how it stands up to 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!
Today I have the Astrolux MF02, the first in my quest to have all the MF0x series lights from Astrolux. This is the [smaller?] thrower option - there's also the MF01, which is a can "wall of light" light, and the MF04, which is a super thrower. I generally like Astrolux and (certainly like the S41! thought technically I reviewed the Manker E14 version.) The MF02 is a nice large thrower with a warm emitter - a good combo. Let's see how it works out!
Another item that CountyComm sent for review! This is the Brass Embassy Pen, Rev 3 (2018). I love brass, and it's just blind luck that the nice folks at CountyComm chose this item for me, and I'm excited to have it! Read on for more thoughts, and more importantly, photos!!
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!
After my recent Maratac PCL Brass review, I realized CountyComm had a bunch more items that would be good for review. I reached out to them, and this is the first of a few things they sent. This is the Maratac AA Titanium flashlight, 2018 rev 2.
I've been off and on excited about RC cars lately. Gearbest sent one that was awesome (until it wasn't) and they've sent a few more that I've struggled to get finished reviewing. This is the next installment, a 1:16 truck!
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!
GearBest often asks me if there are any other categories I'd like to get items from. Some of those times I throw the question in front of my wife. This is one of those times, and one of her answers. We have a lot of hair that can be curled around our house, but none of it is mine. So this post is based on feedback from my family.
Next in my somewhat long list of Nitecore lights is a light very similar to the P26 I just reviewed. This is a smaller variant, still with the rotary dial and dual switch.
For a while now, I've been looking into getting a "cell sponsor." I review a bunch of lights and I'd love to keep these cells as fresh as possible. Luckily enough the kind folks over at LiIonWholesale agreed to send over some cells now and again. These are the first cells they've sent - Vapcell 18350.
Banggood got in touch about a review item and we agreed on this Astrolux light. I generally like Astrolux lights, and this copper light is stunning. Plus it has a great UI!
Reviewing computers is a bit outside the scope of my expertise. However, I was in need of a Windows machine for use with some other review items (namely the EasyThreed E3D Nano), and GearBest agreed to send this little computer to me for use with that printer, and for review. Here's the review of the GPD Pocket Computer!
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!
Utorch has been a brand I liked since a while back, when I reviewed the UT02. I really liked that one, and it's been a go-to recommendation for a while. When I saw these two small lights on GearBest, I was very interested to test them. So here's the Utorch S1 Mini, a 16340 aspheric!
