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 in need of 18650s recently, and there was a great price on these Liitokala 30q cells at Aliexpress. I like 30q cells, and I like good prices, so I bought 8 of these cells. There was a bunch of discussion on BLF and places regarding whether these cells are "real" or not. Read on to find out!
LiionWholesale sent a couple of their new cells for some testing. This is the new Samsung 50e, a 21700 li-ion cell. It's rated for 10A continuous discharge. Read on for performance graphs!
After talking with the guys over at KillzoneFlashlights, and reviewing their 219b BLF-348, we got into some more serious discussions. They sent a few more lights. Two by Acebeam, and one of their own. Here's the first of those, the Acebeam EC65.
I tend to like Rofis lights. They're well made, very functional, and more often than not, just neat little lights. So I was excited when this MR30 showed up in the mail - the MR70 is still my go-to powerbank travel light. The MR30 is smaller with the same capacity, and loses the side light (which I never really used anyway). I'm excited to put it to the test!
