SkyRC Imax B6 Mini Charger Review

After [ages] of hearing a user extol the virtues of the Imax B6 charger, I requested one from GearBest.  It was quite fitting, since I also have an RC car in for review from GearBest. I am excited to plow into this charger.  As it’s my first hobby charger of this type, I’ll probably have to learn a lot along the way.

Amutorch AM30 Flashlight Review

Here’s a light from GearBest that I saw, thought looked neat, and GearBest agreed to send.  I haven’t heard of Amutorch before, but they have a few offerings.

JETBeam TH20 Tactical Flashlight Review

I have a long list of JETBeams that I’m fairly fond of…. I think JETBeam makes a great product, and even some specialty lights that are among my favorite (JETBeam Jet-II Pro in titanium!).  Here’s a much more tactical, bigger, and huge output 18650 light from JETBeam, with the Cree XHP70.2!

Emisar D1S Flashlight Review

Emisar has been killing it lately.  Just released is this D1S, their throwiest offering yet.  I am pleased to have one, as I don’t like the typical entry into throwy 18650 lights (that is, the C8).  Let’s see how it stacks up!

Lumintop Ant Brass Flashlight Review

I continue to have interest in brass lights.  I never had the original Lumintop Tool (the tailswitch was unappealing to me).  But I asked GearBest and received the brass version of the Ant, which is a side switch tool (basically).  Read on!

Lumintop SD75 Flashlight Review

Today I’m reviewing a light that isn’t even a new light.  I asked for it, and GearBest provided.  I have liked the looks and specs of this light for a while and I’m pleased to have one on hand to test.  Let’s see if it stands up to my expectations.

Xiaomi Yuemi MK01B Mechanical Keyboard Review

One of my goals for reviewing keyboards is to get into reviewing some ‘higher quality’ boards.  I’d love to teardown a Mechmini, or a Minivan, for example.  Or build up a Bantam-44.  A lot of it has been about switches.  Third tier switches are fine, but Gateron and Cherry would be great!

The Xiaomi Yuemi MK01B meets all my criteria.  I’m pleased to have a look; read on!

Olight S1 Mini Flashlight Review

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!

Olight M2R Warrior Flashlight Review

Another in a long line of Olight is the Olight M2R.  This one is highly anticipated and regarded, with the momentary and recharging tailcap.  It’s a cool light on paper, so let’s have a closer look.
