Nitecore has a new ultralight headlamp, with high output, high CRI, and red all built in! It’s smaller than the previous iteration of this light, so would likely be great for long runs and the like.
XTAR has a new powerbank on the market. The name is PB2S, and it’s an upgraded PB2. This one has noteworthy improvements – USB-C and support for bigger cells. Read on for a bit of testing!
RovyVon has released a new, bigger light. It’s sort of a keychain light; bigger than their popular keychain series of lights, anyway.
This one’s still an Aurora. The aluminum you’ll see here is the A23, but there are others.
A while back Thrunite released the TC15, a 18650 light with built in charging and an indicating switch. Thrunite made a special edition of the TC15 with youtuber The Outsider. Check out that channel! I’ve never heard of it but to be honest it looks pretty cool. Here’s a test of the customized The Outsider edition of the Thrunite TC15!
A while back Sofirn released a tiny little AAA light. No TIR, no reflector…. basically a bare 5mm led (ok there was a tiny cone reflector built in but it did approximately nothing.) It was awesome, and it was the Sofirn C01.
But it lacked. It had only one mode and the beam was useful for a limited set of circumstances. Fortunately Sofirn updated that light – same body but with a TIR, a two mode twisty UI, and importantly, a different emitter. Here’s my testing of that light, the Sofirn C01S.
Wowtac has a new wall-of-light in a 26650 format light. Wowtac has made some other great lights, with “technical support by Thrunite.” Here’s my review of the Wowtac A5!
The users over at https://www.reddit.com/r/AAMasterRace/ recently got some traffic from the Nanfu guys. Since I do some cell testing, I agreed to test these Nanfu Tenavolts. They’re AA sized lithium ion cells, which are bucked down to the more common 1.5V for AA NiMH or alkaline cells. The claims these make aren’t trivial, so I was interested to test them.
I have a long history of enjoying Skilhunt lights. In particular the UI but I also loved so many of the iterations of the H03… This is a new 14500 light which boasts on-board charging, includes a cell, and also works with NiMH. Read on for more testing!
This is the last in my bunch of Vapcells. I’ve held it til now because it’s a mix of most and least interesting…. First off…
I have one last item from BilletSpin for review – kinda disappointed, I have really enjoyed these items! This is an out-of-production top called the Firefly. It’s smallish, and great for travel use.
Nitecore’s just released a light with what appears to be a built in 18650. It’s fairly low cost, and can be considered a “complete package” light, and has features that can make it a compelling entry point to flashlights. Read on for more!
Today’s the last of my Vapcell liion cell reviews! Well technically I have an IFR review coming up, which is also liion but not really something we’ll all use much.
This is an INR 14500 button top, with 650mAh capacity. Read on for testing!
I heard about this new Nitecore powerbank/charger a while back, and finally have one in my hands. Well not right now; I’m typing right now. Who can hold a powerbank and type at the same time?
Anyway, I wanted to give this one a test, and the nice people over at Illumn sent this one for me to play around with. Read on for some thoughts!
Today I have in for review a very feature-rich light by Fenix. First off, it’s a 21700 light, which is great. It also has on-board charging (via USB-C), dual switches, and some other cool features. Read on to see how it tests out!
Official Specs and Features Here’s a link to the official product page. Versions This review is for one specific dropin, but KDLITKER has many p60…
Here’s a high capacity Vapcell. Rated at only 10A, but with a capacity of 3400mAh, this is a nice high capacity cell! Read on for some testing and pics.
My next item from Billetspin is not a top! It’s a whistle. This is a newish market for Billetspin, but they have a bunch of products in the category. They’re very pretty pieces, but also functional whistles! Read on for more.
Here’s a random charger that BangGood dropped in the latest package to me. I didn’t know anything about it but it claims pretty fast charging over all 4 bays, so let’s see how it work!
