Going small is the big thing in 16340 lights lately, and Fenix has entered the game. The Fenix E16 is a tiny light - definitely the smallest 16340 light I've handled (and I'd guess the very smallest on the market). I've been using this one for a while, so read on for my thoughts!
I already reviewed this light once. That time, it was the BLF Q8. I liked that light then. I saw that Sofirn had a version of that light, and it was rumored that they manufactured the original BLF Q8, so I wanted to see if this version was "close enough." Read on to find out!
I knew when I reviewed the Klarus Mi1C aspheric that I wanted to review these 'nicer metal' versions with the reflector. FastTech send this titanium version, and I'm pleased to put it through the paces!
I'm waiting on amazon inventory to post another Sofirn review, so they sent out the SP31 V2.0 for me to wrap in the meantime. Here's that review. It's an 18650, dual switch tube light! Read on!
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!
Here's a tiny Klarus light, rivaling the Olight S1 Mini in size - easily one of (if not the smallest 16340 light available. This one's different, however, as it has an aspheric lens. While it's true that these might not have all the uses of a TIR or reflector lights, don't discount it too quickly; these are greatly useful little lights. Read on for more!
Another Emisar light! This one I paid for myself, after liking the D4 so much. I like the idea; let's see how the execution is. Since the build is so similar between the D1 and D4, this review will probably be a bit abbreviated.
I love getting Convoy lights for review. Here's another one, (and one I have been asking for), the Convoy X3. This is a 26650 format small thrower, with cell versatility and a great tint. Read on for more!
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!
Before the TR10 review, I had only just heard of the Rofis brand, but I was impressed by the features. GearBest sent this out to me after the review of the TR10. A lot of this review will be just like the TR10 review (I'd intended to do the reviews together, but didn't get the lights at the same time): please forgive that. These lights are very similar indeed.
A light by a company I haven't even heard of! Pretty neat little hook on this light - it converts from straight to angle! Read on to see how it actually works.
The iconic design of this Oveready BOSS (Bright Output Small Size) drew me in immediately, and I was finally able to purchase one. Click through for photos and more!
The venerable C8, this one made by Simon at Convoy. This is mainly an update of a colorway for the Convoy C8, but it also gets a UI refresh. Read on!
After the Jet-II Pro was such a hit (for me, anyway!), Kathy at GearBest decided to send the Jet-II Mk to compare. These lights are very similar except that one's a twisty (Mk) and the other is a clicky (Pro). Thanks to GearBest for sending this light, and for allowing the great coupon on the Ti version of the Pro.
Marshall at Going Gear sent me this JetBEAM Jet-II Pro for review. I happen to love CR123a lights (maybe my favorite category, truthfully), so I was excited to receive this. Special thanks to Going Gear for sending these my way! Thanks u/storl!
