Nitecore has a new ultralight headlamp, with high output, high CRI, and red all built in! It’s smaller than the previous iteration of this light, so would likely be great for long runs and the like.
XTAR has a new powerbank on the market. The name is PB2S, and it’s an upgraded PB2. This one has noteworthy improvements – USB-C and support for bigger cells. Read on for a bit of testing!
RovyVon has released a new, bigger light. It’s sort of a keychain light; bigger than their popular keychain series of lights, anyway.
This one’s still an Aurora. The aluminum you’ll see here is the A23, but there are others.
A while back Thrunite released the TC15, a 18650 light with built in charging and an indicating switch. Thrunite made a special edition of the TC15 with youtuber The Outsider. Check out that channel! I’ve never heard of it but to be honest it looks pretty cool. Here’s a test of the customized The Outsider edition of the Thrunite TC15!
A while back Sofirn released a tiny little AAA light. No TIR, no reflector…. basically a bare 5mm led (ok there was a tiny cone reflector built in but it did approximately nothing.) It was awesome, and it was the Sofirn C01.
But it lacked. It had only one mode and the beam was useful for a limited set of circumstances. Fortunately Sofirn updated that light – same body but with a TIR, a two mode twisty UI, and importantly, a different emitter. Here’s my testing of that light, the Sofirn C01S.
Wowtac has a new wall-of-light in a 26650 format light. Wowtac has made some other great lights, with “technical support by Thrunite.” Here’s my review of the Wowtac A5!
The users over at https://www.reddit.com/r/AAMasterRace/ recently got some traffic from the Nanfu guys. Since I do some cell testing, I agreed to test these Nanfu Tenavolts. They’re AA sized lithium ion cells, which are bucked down to the more common 1.5V for AA NiMH or alkaline cells. The claims these make aren’t trivial, so I was interested to test them.
