Rofis MR30 Flashlight Review

I tend to like Rofis lights.  They’re well made, very functional, and more often than not, just neat little lights.  So I was excited when this MR30 showed up in the mail – the MR70 is still my go-to powerbank travel light.  The MR30 is smaller with the same capacity, and loses the side light (which I never really used anyway).  I’m excited to put it to the test!

Zanflare SB-6039 Solar Tent Light Review

While this is a light, it’s not really a typical flashlight.  And to be honest I’ve had it on a shelf to review for a while and I’m going to put it on the “Tuesday” (aka “not a flashlight”) review day.  So here are my thoughts on this little solar powered hanging light, the Zanflare SB-6039.

Nitecore TM10K Flashlight Review

Here’s a light I was so excited to get, and one I’m very pleased to have.  It’s quite special – Nitecore’s highest output light at a claimed 10,000 lumens.  I’ve been messing around with it for a while, and here are my tests and thoughts!

Sofirn SC31 Flashlight Review

Here’s another Sofirn light – one not meant to be a barn burner, but just a solid performer in general.  It’s an 18650 light, with on-board charging.  Read on!

Backnife v2 EDC Ceramic Micro Knife

Phil from the Kickstarter program for the Backnife sent me a message that he’d like to send one of his products out for a look.  I have been interested in ceramic knives for a while, so I said sure!  A ceramic box cutter, neat!

Sofirn Q8 Flashlight Review

I already reviewed this light once.  That time, it was the BLF Q8.  I liked that light then.  I saw that Sofirn had a version of that light, and it was rumored that they manufactured the original BLF Q8, so I wanted to see if this version was “close enough.”  Read on to find out!

Imren 3200mAh 25A/40A Flat Top 20700 Cell Review

I have in for review a couple of 20700 cells.  I asked for these because I expect that in the near future, more flashlights will begin to accept this size, and I want to be prepared!  Also I just like testing cells.  This is the Imren 3200mAh 25A/40A Flat Top 20700 Cell.

Thrunite TN42C V2 Flashlight Review

Here’s a review of another Thrunite. In truth, and as I just reviewed the TN42, this review will be much the same as that review, but with more consideration for the battery pack (which is the main/only difference). I liked the regular TN42, so let’s see how the TN42c v2 pans out!

Klarus Mi1C Titanium Flashlight Review

I knew when I reviewed the Klarus Mi1C aspheric that I wanted to review these ‘nicer metal’ versions with the reflector.  FastTech send this titanium version, and I’m pleased to put it through the paces!

Anidees Prismatic Wireless RGB Low Profile Mechanical Keyboard Review

I like this keyboard as much as I expected to.  It has the comfort of a laptop board (if you find that comfortable; at the very least for me, it’s my usual board).  The caps are appropriately labeled with useful labels.  I don’t love the very clicky switches, but that’s personal preference.  I found the bluetooth to be not quite as reliable as the Anne Pro (which for me works perfectly).  Overall though, I’m quite impressed with the board!

RovyVon A2 IP Blue and A3 Gun Gray Flashlight Review

I was fortunate to continue the discourse with RovyVon, and they sent two more of these tiny Aurora keychain lights.  This time it’s the A2 and A3.  I’m reviewing them together because they really only differ in body material.  But they’re different from the A5 I already reviewed in that they don’t have secondary emitters.  Read on to see how they act!

Thrunite TN42 Flashlight Review

To be frank, I’ve asked for this light for ages, from multiple sources.  Always got a response of ‘it’s not in season’ or something like that.  Fortunately, the awesome guys at illumn.com send this watershed thrower to me, along with a few cells, (which I reviewed here.)  Needless to say, I’m super excited to have this light, and glad to put it through it’s paces, even though it’s been out for a while.

This lantern came to my attention through many discussions about how great it was.  I wasn’t initially interested, but I asked GearBest to send one over.  Zanflare is the GearBest housebrand, and they obliged my request!  Here’s my review of this cool little lantern.
