Nitecore UMS2 and UMS4 Charger Review

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!

XTAR D2 and D4 Charger Review

XTAR makes some great products, and have a massive line of chargers.  Here are two new chargers, the D2 and D4.  Very similar chargers, except one's a 2-bay, and one's a 4-bay.  I think they could make great basic fast chargers, but I'm glad to test them to find out!

XTAR VC2S Charger Review

Xtar has a bunch of new chargers out, including this update to a previous model.  This is the VC2S, which steps up the game from the original VC2 by adding an S!!  Maybe more, but read on to find that info out!

Imren 3200mAh 25A/40A Flat Top 20700 Cell Review

I have in for review a couple of 20700 cells.  I asked for these because I expect that in the near future, more flashlights will begin to accept this size, and I want to be prepared!  Also I just like testing cells.  This is the Imren 3200mAh 25A/40A Flat Top 20700 Cell.

Thrunite TN42C V2 Flashlight Review

Here's a review of another Thrunite. In truth, and as I just reviewed the TN42, this review will be much the same as that review, but with more consideration for the battery pack (which is the main/only difference). I liked the regular TN42, so let's see how the TN42c v2 pans out!

XTAR VC4 Charger Review

GearBest has been sending out these VC4 chargers lately, an I was on the receiving end.  I'm pleased with that, since I typically like XTAR goods.  This charger isn't new, and is quite simple, so could be a good standard.  Read on to see how it tests!

BLF GT Mini Flashlight Review

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!

Nitecore LC10 Lantern/Charger Review

There's another entry in the .... let's call it the "USB dongle charger" list.  This is the Nitecore LC10, which is similar to other dongle chargers, but adds a few new features!  There's an in-line lantern, and the poles are reversible on this charger.  Read on for more!

Nitecore Q6 Charger Review

I'd asked over and over for the Q4 charger from Nitecore, but it just never happened.  Then they went and upped the bays by 2, and made the Q6!  I'm happy to have one of those in for review!  Thanks Nitecore!

LiionWholesale Protected MJ1 Li-Ion Cell Review

LiIonWholesale have sent over a few more cells for testing.  I'm hoping to get something regular going, and I hope this post will motivate that to happen - it's my first pass at an actual thorough cell test!!  This is the Protected LG MJ1 3500mAh 10A 18650 Button Top cell!

XTAR D06 1600 Dive Light Review

My list of XTAR items reviewed includes many chargers, but only one light.  But they have out a new light.  It's a dive light, with an interesting switch.  I'm no diver, but I did put the light through the normal paces.  Here's that review!  

Ultratac A1 Flashlight Review

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.
