Nitecore TIKI Keychain Flashlight Review

What can I say about the TIKI that I haven’t already said about the RovyVon Aurora series.  We should get this discussion out of the way at the start:  version one of the Aurora, which was released maybe a year and a half ago, and this TIKI/TIKI LE are basically the same.  I asked Nitecore about this specifically, and they declined to respond.  I asked RovyVon about this specifically and they were very clear that this was in no way whatsoever a collaboration in any format.

Lumintop FW3C Andúril Flashlight Review

A Fun Fund Friday review of a light you all probably already own and have moved past…  The Lumintop FW3C – yes another FW review!  My copy of this light has been in my possession for a while now, so shipped with an early version of Andúril, and the review might not be the most relevant any more.

Wowtac has been bringing the hits lately, and most importantly, at a nice price.  Today I have a version 2 of the A4 – really it’s practically a different light.  This one’s a single cell (26650) and smaller head.  Maybe a scaled down version of the original A4?  Anyway, read on for thoughts and testing!
