In truth I'm probably the last flashlight person on Earth without a Lumintop Tool AAA. But there are some variations I've gained interest in, and they're also a an inexpensive way to get Nichia 219b emitters. GearBest was kind enough to send three out for review. After getting those three I liked them enough to purchase the Brass version for myself!
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.
Occasionally I get a wild hair to ask for a bit of a 'dream light' for review. Such is the case with today's review item. I sent Jeff at Okluma a message much to my surprise, he had the perfectly light for me!
With the continuing popularity of the Astrolux S41, an updated was developed: The S42. This light is essentially iterative, but adds micro-USB charging. And the Nichia emitter (which I have here) is 219c instead of 219b. Possibly most importantly, a new user interface! Let's see how this S42 stacks up!
Another penlight! This time a Nitecore, but most importantly, a Nichia 219B light! Great for medical personnel!
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!
Finally I get to see the Manker E14 (219B)! Another review light from GearBest! First of all, thanks to GearBest for providing this light. Second of all, I'm pleased to say that I already have experience with this light in the Astrolux S41 format and I liked that one enough to willingly accept the Manker version (the E14) as a review light from GearBest. I love the S41, let's look at the Manker E14..
