Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight Review

I was lucky enough a while back to get in on a Sinner drop directly from Sinner himself.  So this light came to me directly from United Arab Emirates.  I was excited to snag it, but you don’t have to get these that way.  There is at least one site that drops these lights on occasion.  This is my review of the Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight.

RovyVon E300S Angel Eyes Flashlight Review

Here’s a light I’ve been excited about since I reviewed a light for RovyVon initially.  I since reviewed a couple more from the Aurora series (and like them!).  I was clued in during the prototype phase, but have only just gotten the review sample.  So here’s my review of the RovyVon triple!  The E300S!

Aliexpress Liitokala “Samsung 30Q” Li-Ion Cell Review

I was in need of 18650s recently, and there was a great price on these Liitokala 30q cells at Aliexpress.  I like 30q cells, and I like good prices, so I bought 8 of these cells.  There was a bunch of discussion on BLF and places regarding whether these cells are “real” or not.  Read on to find out!

Venom Orion Flashlight Review

I have a penchant for snagging things I don’t need, which meet the criteria for things I like.  I like brass triples.  This light by VenomDD wasn’t even on my radar, but I found a great price on a copy, so I snagged it.  (Thanks for pointing me to it, u/emarkd!)

Yes, this is another triple.  Another brass triple.  Does it cut the mustard?  Read on to find out!

Astrolux S43 Flashlight Review

I’ve reviewed many iterations of this light.  I did the S42 not that long ago.  And one of my very first reviews was of the Manker E14 (which I later sold, and hugely regretted selling).  
This is yet another update on that platform, with 219c emitters, and some other improvements.  Read on for more!

Fireflies ROT66 Flashlight Review

Believe it or not, I buy quite a few lights.  More often than not those lights have Nichia emitters.  In this case, the light has nine nichia emitters (and a few other type too).  This light is by a new company on the block who’s hitting quite hard.  This is the FireFlies ROT66.

Fenix E16 Flashlight Review

Going small is the big thing in 16340 lights lately, and Fenix has entered the game.  The Fenix E16 is a tiny light – definitely the smallest 16340 light I’ve handled (and I’d guess the very smallest on the market).  I’ve been using this one for a while, so read on for my thoughts!

Acebeam EC65 Flashlight Review

After talking with the guys over at KillzoneFlashlights, and reviewing their 219b BLF-348, we got into some more serious discussions.  They sent a few more lights.  Two by Acebeam, and one of their own.  Here’s the first of those, the Acebeam EC65.

Wuben E05 Flashlight Review

Wuben is still hitting the scene hard.  I’ve reviewed a Wuben before, the TO10R.  The build quality is great, and I was interested to see if Wuben would keep that trend going.  They sent the E05, which I believe has just been released, and here’s my review and test of it!

XTAR D2 and D4 Charger Review

XTAR makes some great products, and have a massive line of chargers.  Here are two new chargers, the D2 and D4.  Very similar chargers, except one’s a 2-bay, and one’s a 4-bay.  I think they could make great basic fast chargers, but I’m glad to test them to find out!
