Acebeam TK18 AL Flashlight Review

Here’s another Acebeam light, very similar to the TK16 I’ve already reviewed.  This whole set of lights has different emitter options though, and runs on an 18650.  The UI is the same though.  If you liked the TK16 (like I did) then you’ll probably like the TK18 Al (like I… read on to find out.)

Reylight Krystal Flashlight Review

Today I am reviewing the Reylight Krystal.  This is a light I wanted for a long while but … well to be honest, not at “new” prices.  I finally found one used at an acceptable price.  I love many things about this light, and dislike a few.  Read on for thoughts and testing!!

Armytek Zippy Keychain Flashlight Review

Today I have a little keychain light from Armytek.  This is the Zippy, and I have the “Extended Kit” – see what that means later.  It’s a tiny thing!  Great for keychains but probably better as a reading headlamp.  Read on for some testing!

Brinyte WT01 Apollo Flashlight Review

My second (and last on-hand) Brinyte flashlight.  This one’s kind of interesting, since it features wireless charging and is a complete package light.  The wireless charging is a neat feature – when power is cut to the charge base, the light comes on automatically!  Read on for more thoughts about that, and testing!

Malkoff E2XT Flashlight (Head) Review

Malkoff recently released a couple of throw heads.  The two are similar, and I got the E2XT.  It’s a very throwy head and has a nice wide voltage range.  Read on for more.

XTAR MC4S Charger Review

Here’s my most recent XTAR item – a 4 bay charger powered by USB-C.  It’s a very simple charger, so this probably won’t be a very long review.  Read on!

Casio G-Shock GMWB5000TCM-1 Watch Review

Since I started writing reviews back around 2015, I’ve wanted to include watches on my site.  Specifically G-Shocks, since that’s what I’m most interested in currently.  Many of my collection (50+) are used, so I don’t find it “fair” to review those (or even post photos in the manner seen here).  But this one is different.  It’s special in many ways, and I bought it brand new.  So I know it’s provenance and what’s happened to it since.  Truly this post is much more of a “look at this gorgeous watch” since I don’t plan to test many of the features of the watch.  But mainly, does it live up to the hype.  That I can answer!

BilletSPIN Thunderstorm Titanium Soul Pen Review

I have handled one BilletSPIN pen before and was impressed with it.  It was a heavy copy though – stainless and brass.  I love those two metals, but for a daily driving pen, I tend toward something lighter.  This answers that request – it’s titanium!  Also the clip is updated…. otherwise very similar pens.  Read on for more pics and thoughts!
