FocusWorks Axis Micro Mini (Stonewashed Bronze) Fidget Spinner Review

Occasionally I get a wild hair to buy a random product like this one.  I already know I like FocusWorks from the Eryx review.  And I like small spinners too, particularly ones with these ball bearings.  So during a sale I purchased this Axis Micro Mini in stonewashed bronze, and thought I’d throw out some photos and thoughts on it.

RovyVon A29 Brass Flashlight Review

Another RovyVon!  This time it’s the brass version, and one I bought for myself.  That’s a testament to the other two from this series I’ve reviewed – the A23 and A28 – I liked them enough to put my own money into a version.  The A29, brass of course.

RovyVon A28 Flashlight Review

I find no better way to start 2020 than with a post about a RovyVon light.  RovyVon was huge for me in 2019, and I have this post and more upcoming from them.  This is the A28, a clear body light which has two secondary emitters – red and UV.

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.

XTAR has a nice new EIGHT BAY charger available, and it’s powered by USB-C.  Those are both fairly unusual features.  Also the charger is inexpensive, so it’s definitely worth consideration.

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 A4 V2 Flashlight Review

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!

Lumintop EDC18 Flashlight Review

Lumintop had great success with the FW series, and expanded it greatly.  They also went a different directly – a more standard light but with an e-switch on the side.  That’s the EDC18, and here’s my testing of it!

MecArmy GP1 Fidget Spinner Review

I once saw MecArmy as a flashlight company.  The more I see their Facebook and Instagram posts, the more I realize they’re actually a gadget company.  That’s certainly the case with the item I have in my hand today – the MecArmy GP1 fidget spinner.  Appointed with anodized titanium, and very fidgety….  Read on for some thoughts and pics!

Custom ReyLight Gemini with Crescendo UI Flashlight Review

My Fun Fund Friday review for today is of a light I couldn’t not own.  It’s an orange coated ReyLight called the Gemini.  Now, this particular copy that I purchased myself, is from the secondary market, and the UI has been swapped entirely for something custom.  So I’m mainly showing my evaluation of the physical light itself and I’ll probably also comment some on the UI, which is ToyKeeper’s Crescendo.  Hope that type post interests you, and please read on!

Acebeam K75 Flashlight Review

Going Gear, the great store in Georgia sent me a light I’ve been itching to get my hands on…  The Acebeam K75 – I’m sure you’ve heard of it, or if you’ve looked out your door at night you’ve probably seen me shining mine up into the air.  This is a 18650×4 dedicated thrower with a Luminus SBT-90 Gen2, an uncommon emitter.  Read on for some thoughts and testing!
