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.
Sofirn is continuing their media blitz, and I'm on the receiving end! This time it's the SF36, an 18650 medium-thrower.
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.
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.
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.
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!
It's been a long time since I reviewed a Manker light, though I have liked most of the Manker's I've had. The E14 is still a personal favorite (and in my opinion, a watershed light). Good friends have described the E03H as a must have, so I ... had to have one! Fortunately Fasttech came through for me. So here's the review of the E03H!
Here's a new little Acebeam keychain light, but with some unusual bonus features: red emitter, uv emitter, and AAA cells, and 10440 support! And a metal body, which is an even nicer touch. I'm pleased to have this one, and happy to put it through the paces.
I've gotten a taste for bigger lights and even though this isn't a new light, I was excited to get it from GearBest. And I happen to typically like JETBeam lights, too. So here's the JETBeam T6!
The list on BLF to preorder this light was long, and long ago. After getting on the list, I promptly forgot and never checked back. When the hype train started regarding orders for this light, it was with bitterness and spite that I started the "Q8 Hate." (In jest of course.) Much to my surprise, when I checked I was on the list! I ordered the light, and [spoiler] love this light!
Another stainless steel light... Another light which looks like a bomb, this one named "Torpedo". Here's the review of the Lumintop Torpedo 007.
Here's a big ol' 26650 light that turns out to not really be that big! Carries well, onboard charging, on and on! Great light, read more to see the testing!
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!
Here we have the Zanflare F1, which is GearBest's first foray into actual flashlight manufacturing. GearBest is understandably proud of this light, and Kathy asked me to take a look. Let's see how it fares!
