Along with the XTAR PB2 I recently reviewed, XTAR sent the Dragon VP4 Plus 4 bay 2A charger. This is an interesting charger, with some unusual features, and I'm glad to give it a test, too!
When I saw this light, I immediately knew it was one I wanted to see in person. Knowing it's made by JETBeam made it even more appealing; I've reviewed a bunch of their lights and typically really like them. I liked this one for it's shape, to be honest, but as a biker it's nice to have a dedicated light made by a reputable company.
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!
Nitecore has released a new lantern "lipstick style" light. This time it's in the 18650 format. It was the LA10 before, in AA format. I never had that light so I went in with no preconceived notions. This is essentially billed as a dual purpose light; EDC and Lantern.
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.
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!
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.
Nitecore seems to like to play around with UI’s, and here’s another new one. The P26 has an infinitely variable rotary dial on the head. It’s quite interesting. The rest of the light is very similar to some of Nitecore’s other lights. Let’s see how the P26 and its rotary dial stack up.
I've long been a fan of the Nitecore MH20/MH20GT format, and Nitecore has a new similar light in the series. It's the MH23, and Nitecore sent one over for review. (And to be completely honest I'm pumped to have it.)
After my recent Thrunite review of the TC20, Thrunite asked if I'd be interested in reviewing the Wowtac BSS v3. Here's that review! This light is a collaboration with Black Scout Survival, and is the third iteration of the light.
Another JETBeam with on-board charging! This time in 18650 format. I've already reviewed the similar AA/14500 light. I was excited to test this one out, because it's also got an emitter I've never tested!
This is the second (and final for now) Nitefox review. This is an 18650 light with dual switches, and an indicating switch. Nice light; read on for more!
