My first "real" cell charger was a Nitecore D4. Nitecore came close to replacing it a while back with the SC4, but they've certainly done it with these new two chargers - the USM2 and USM4. These chargers (most importantly?) fit 21700 cells, among other awesome features. Read on!
I was lucky enough a while back to get in on a Sinner drop directly from Sinner himself. So this light came to me directly from United Arab Emirates. I was excited to snag it, but you don't have to get these that way. There is at least one site that drops these lights on occasion. This is my review of the Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight.
I've reviewed many iterations of this light. I did the S42 not that long ago. And one of my very first reviews was of the Manker E14 (which I later sold, and hugely regretted selling).
This is yet another update on that platform, with 219c emitters, and some other improvements. Read on for more!
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!
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!
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!
There's a new maker in town! These guys are FidgetHQ, makers of some fine and very popular fidget spinners in brass, stainless, copper, and titanium. They know how to get things done, and they've set their eyes on flashlight. This is their first offering, a triple emitter, 18650/18350 light, with Bistro firmware. Here's my review of this light!
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.
Occasionally I get a wild hair to ask for a bit of a 'dream light' for review. Such is the case with today's review item. I sent Jeff at Okluma a message much to my surprise, he had the perfectly light for me!
This is a much talked about light that I didn't know much about. I finally talked Thrunite into sending me one. Here's the review... Spoiler this light is great!
With the continuing popularity of the Astrolux S41, an updated was developed: The S42. This light is essentially iterative, but adds micro-USB charging. And the Nichia emitter (which I have here) is 219c instead of 219b. Possibly most importantly, a new user interface! Let's see how this S42 stacks up!
It's been a while since I reviewed a Sunwayman light, and they've put out some interesting things. The lights I've been working on are the CC series. GearBest was kind enough to send me both the C12CC and C22CC, which are essentially the same light with a difference in cell body. As such, this review will be a co-review for the two, with the differences noted where necessary.
