Maglight MicroMag (kyfishguy) Flashlight Review

Another Friday!  Another Fun Fund Friday!  Today I have in my hands a light I bought for myself…. Nostalgia, new emitters,…  plenty of reasons.  But ultimately it came down to someone (u/tebeve, on reddit) lending me his copy of this light, and me realizing I really wanted to have one of my own.  This is a MagLite Micromag, which has been modified by kyfishguy on BLF.  The mods are extensive!  Read on to see about them, and this light.

Doogee X70 Cell Phone Review

Every once in a while someone asks to send an item that I’m very interested in, but ultimately have no real idea how to properly review.  Such is the case with this review item.  I’m excited to have it, have enjoyed using it, but generally I don’t know how to test it.  So this is a review/preview with mostly personal impressions of the Doogee X70.

Imalent RT70 Flashlight Review

In for review today is another Imalent, in the style of other Imalent’s I’ve had before (RT35, for example).  The RT70 differs from the RT35 though, because while the RT35 was a thrower, the RT70 is much more of a mix/wall-of-light type light.  The Cree XHP70 makes that happen.  Read on for more!

Imren 18350 LiIon Cell Review

I’ve tested some 18350 cells, but I asked for this cell specifically because it’s an inexpensive option, and has a button top, too.  Both of…

Lumintop GT Micro Flashlight Review

The BLF GT has become a whole product line for Lumintop.  I’ve reviewed a couple already (the BLF GT, and the GT Mini).  Here’s the newest iteration, the GT Micro, a 14500 light – basically a very small thrower!  Read on to see how it tests.

CWF Dragon Driver (in MechForce MechTorch) Review

For the longest time I’ve wanted to try the Dragon driver.  Out of all the lights I’ve ever had, I’ve never managed to snag one that came with a Dragon driver.  But I did recently get the MechForce MechTorch host, so I went and purchased a Dragon driver with the intention of installing it myself, into this host.  You can see from yesterday’s post that this was successful, so now I have a flashlight with a Dragon driver, for testing!  Read on for more!

How Do I: Install a Dragon Flashlight Driver

Hi There! I’ll be the second to tell you that I’m probably not qualified to write this post.  With that said, I did successfully install…

MechForce MechTorch Flashlight Copper Host Review

Today I have for review a bit of a departure from normal Wednesday flashlight reviews.  This is indeed a flashlight, but it’s just a host!  No guts are in this light (yet).  I’ve even mostly covered this light before in the review of the MechForce MechTorch Turbo, but I thought it might be interesting to see this light as a host, since it’s quite a nice host and available for purchase that way.

Vapcell 18350 LiIon Cell Review

Early into my interest in cell reviews I was sent a set of Vapcell 18350 liion cells.  My ways and means are different now, and LiIonwholesale agreed to send me a fresh set for testing.  So here’s another test of these well-regarded 18350 cells, this time with actual discharge (etc) data!  Who knows, in another year maybe my testing will have evolved so much further that these cells deserve another look!

Nitecore NU25 Headlamp Review

I’ve reviewed a bunch of Nitecore lights, but somehow this little headlamp slipped under the radar.  Nitecore reached out, and soon this diminutive three emitter, high CRI, lightweight headlamp was in my hands!  This is my kind of light, so I’m interested to see if it’s any good!
