In for review today is the Nitecore EC30. This builds on the Concept 1 platform, with a different switch. But what else is different? Read on!
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!
Wuben is still hitting the scene hard. I've reviewed a Wuben before, the TO10R. The build quality is great, and I was interested to see if Wuben would keep that trend going. They sent the E05, which I believe has just been released, and here's my review and test of it!
Another light from Fasttech! This time it's a new brand for me; Wuben. Wuben says on their website that they've been in the flashlight market for over 30 years. They make quite a few lights I hope to eventually get to test, but for now it's the TO10R, a 16340 triple with on-board charging!
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.
After talking to Lumintop (directly), I've gotten a light for review from them. I hope to have more - they make a lot of stuff, including much of the BLF forum lights. They sent a tiny headlamp. An AAA light, with a magnet and an orange switch and headband. Great combo! Let's see how it stands up to testing.
Utorch has been a brand I liked since a while back, when I reviewed the UT02. I really liked that one, and it's been a go-to recommendation for a while. When I saw these two small lights on GearBest, I was very interested to test them. So here's the Utorch S1 Mini, a 16340 aspheric!
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!
Rofis is one of those brands I haven't known for long, but I've by-and-large liked a whole lot. Recently I had the MR70, and that's going to be my go-to travel light. Rofis has a thing for making lights with rotating heads, and this is another example. This version, however, adds on-board charging!
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!
Nitecore sent out another headlamp, this time a single 18650 light. I happen to really like angle lights, and I'm considerably into 18650 lights as well, so I'm interested to see how this little light performs. This is the Nitecore HC33.
I've been a huge fan of the Olight S Mini (the brass S Mini is one of my most used lights!), and this S1 Mini is in some ways, it's successor. Yes, it's from the S1 lineage, but it's smaller than the S Mini; which is more important? And now it's available in High CRI? I was very interested. Keep reading to see how I like it now!
Before receiving this Armytek Elf C2, I'd literally never laid my hands on an Armytek light. I was always curious about them but for this reason or that, just never had one. Well Marshall over at Going Gear was kind enough to oblige my request for the Elf C2, and here's my chance to see what they're all about!!
Another iteration in the Olight Nova series. This time it's with an 18650 cell, an updated headband connection, and overall higher output. Olight sent one over for me to test and see how this one stacks up! Thanks to Olight and Going Gear for sending this light to me.
