Nitecore TM9K Flashlight Review

Nitecore has long has a “Tiny Monster” line of lights.  I haven’t handled a bunch of them but today I have the new TM9K, which boasts a brief 9500 lumen output, a built in cell, and on-board USB-C charging.  Looks like a pretty neat light!  Read on for some testing!

XTAR PB2C Charger / Powerbank Review

There’s a new version of the convenient XTAR powerbank/charger.  It’s the PB2C, and adds USB-C charging.  Also relevant is what it takes away – cost.  This one is inexpensive!

Lumintop HL3A Flashlight Review

Here’s a light that is “another in the series” so in many ways this is a review you can already sort of expect.  On the other hand this is the first of the series of FW type lights to be right angle!  This is the HL3A, and I’ve had this review done for a while and waiting on the official product page.  That’s up, so here’s this review!

Vapcell S4 Plus Charger Review

I’ve tested a bunch of Vapcell cells, but I think this is the first charger.  Also it’s been a long time since I tested a charger and so I ended up not testing this one in a timely manner.  This is my last remaining 2019 review item.  Sorry Vapcell and thanks for being patient!  Also I’m stating up front that my charger reviews are likely going to get scaled back.  In this case I’m basically testing the main feature, which is the ability to charge 4 bays at 3A each!!

Imalent DM21C Flashlight Review

Here’s a light that I’ve sort of already reviewed before…. at first glance.  The DM21C looks like a big version of the LD10, but is not really.  This is an 18650 light, and the cell can be removed.  Everything needed is included, and it has two switches.  Read on for more!

Southern Grind Spider Monkey GLOW Series Black PVD Carbon Fiber Folding Knife Review

One of the bonuses working with Going Gear again comes in the fact that they are knife nuts.  See their newest video for more proof of that.  What’s better for me is that they’ve sent me a cool knife to handle, too.  This is the (long name warning) Southern Grind Spider Monkey.  It’s part of the GLOW series, and the blade is black PVD.  The scales are Carbon Fiber.  And they glow!  Just a lot going on in this knife… read on for more – but mostly carry on because there are a bunch of photos!!

Lumintop FW1A Pro Flashlight Review

There was a point where I’d have said the FW series of Lumintop lights was played out (or “overdone.”)  I’d have said the FW1A Pro was unnecessary.  …. A 18650 light with Andúril, a Cree XHP50.2 under a reflector – what’s the point?….   You’ll have to read on to see what I think after having it. 😀
