Ultratac got in touch with me recently to review a light of theirs. They have a few brass offerings and I was interested, so I agreed to review the A1 if they also sent a brass light. The brass light (K18 Mini) will be reviewed soon, but here's the A1 for now.
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.
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.
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 was on the search for a logging multimeter for ages. A friend mentioned he'd gotten this "Mooshimeter" - a meter I'd never heard of. I asked around about it, got in touch with James, and he sent over a refurbished unit for me to test and play with. Now, I'm not electrical engineer - I discussed that with him and I'll say it up front to you. This isn't going to be that kind of test. Consider it an overview, a how-it-works. And if nothing else, a bunch of photos of the unit!
I have reviewed a bunch of Lumintop lights, and really, I'm a fan. The Tool AAA series was good enough that after I got the two review versions, I bought two more myself! This is the Tool AA, which shares the look of the AAA version, and features as well. Like the AAA version, there are a few options for this light. Read on!
I've liked Eagle Eye lights before (the X2R was a personal favorite!). So when I saw this smaller Eagle Eye available, I asked GearBest for it, and they obliged.
I’ve liked ReyLight for a while. I have a Pineapple, and it’s one of my go-to house lights. When CaptRon25 had a custom version of the Lan Ti produced, I was interested. I reached out, and here is the result! This is the polished version.
LTE Tactical messaged me about reviewing a couple of their lights. I agreed to review this zoomy because it seems like a ubiquitous style of zoomy.
Here's another light from Nitecore, the neat little MT22A. This light resembles both a beeper from the 80's, and a Cool Fall Spy, so it's quite interesting. Let's see how it fares the review!
I was pretty excited to get this light - it's one I asked to review specifically. How many lights with built in charging can charge Li-ion and NiMH as well? I don't know but here's at least one. So I was interested to test it, and test it I did!
Here's a cool little AA sized light from Thrunite. Solid build quality and nice performance - see the full review!
This is my first big brass light ever, and I could not be happier. I love this as an around-the-house light. Read on!
Here's a small little Thrunite headlamp. Kind of a camping headlamp but in the "flashlight headlamp" style. A nice light to review.
Marketed for women, but a perfect "gentleman's carry" light, this one has a great mix of things I love: Brass, copper, carbon fiber. Let's see if it holds up to expectations!
For a while I've been carrying this Manker E11, sent to me by Kathy at GearBest. I like smaller lights and an AA light makes a great small light! Thanks to GearBest for sending me this light for review.
Olight just released a couple of new lights - the R50, and the S1A Baton. Today I'm looking at the S1A Baton, and an R50 review is upcoming. I'm excited to review these, and appreciate Olight for providing these for review. And thanks to Calvin at Illumn for facilitating.
