TNC Micro-Lux Dragon Flashlight Review

TNC makes some very pretty lights and I have been eyeing a specific one for a long time.  This TNC Micro-Lux Dragon is a 10440 twisty, but it’s got a bigger head and a reflector – so it’s not a typical keychain version of a 10440 light.  Read on for some thoughts and testing!

Nightwatch NSX4 Flashlight Review

In my hands for review today is another light from Neal at NealsGadgets.com.  I’m not sure if this is a Neal house brand or what but I don’t see the Nightwatch brand many other places.  This is the Nightwatch NSX4, a four emitter light which accepts a very unusual cell size: 26800.  These are available from Neal with a special charger that supports this larger size.  Read on for testing and thoughts!
