RovyVon has released an update to their very popular Aurora A2/A3 series of lights. RovyVon sent over an updated A3 light – the A3x. This is as much a new light as it is an update, but addresses issues raised from the initial release. Have a look, and see if the improvements are compelling!
Acebeam has dropped a new headlamp in the form of a three emitter 18650 light with USB-C charging. It’s a nice looking device with three emitter options. Read on for more thoughts and testing!
Wowtac makes some solid, inexpensive lights, and they’ve updated their A2 headlamp. Wowtac has released the A2S, which almost doubles the output across all modes, increases throw, but retains the nice form factor of the headlamp. Read on for full testing of the Wowtac A2S!
An 18650 headlamp! This could be a good category, mainly falling to whether the light is well balanced against it’s head straps. This one is, and works great. It has dual emitters and USB-C charging, which is a nice bonus. It’s the Fenix HM65R – read on for more thoughts and testing!
Today I have in my hands a new light by Fenix. It’s the E30R, and it’s essentially a 18650 version of the E18R, which I liked quite a bit. It’s also quite a bit like the LD30, which I said would be better if it was only an e-switch light, not a dual switch light. The E30R is basically the LD30 as an e-switch only light. (So I already expect to like it!)
Always on the hunt for the perfect orange flashlight, recently I found this one by Coast. It looks like a fun light, so I reached out to Coast, and they sent this one (and another one) out for review. This is my testing of the Coast Polysteel 600R, a plastic zoomy with batteries included.
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.
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!
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!
I have a long history of enjoying Skilhunt lights. In particular the UI but I also loved so many of the iterations of the H03… This is a new 14500 light which boasts on-board charging, includes a cell, and also works with NiMH. Read on for more testing!
Nitecore’s just released a light with what appears to be a built in 18650. It’s fairly low cost, and can be considered a “complete package” light, and has features that can make it a compelling entry point to flashlights. Read on for more!
Today I have in for review a very feature-rich light by Fenix. First off, it’s a 21700 light, which is great. It also has on-board charging (via USB-C), dual switches, and some other cool features. Read on to see how it tests out!
I reviewed the FT03 a while back, but that was the SST40 flavor. BangGood wanted a review of the XHP50.2 version as well, so they sent this one over for review. The light is fundamentally the same, but with quite a different emitter. Read on for more! Or just hit up the table to see some differences.
Today I have the DX3B Clicky, one of the many lights in the DX3B series. This one packs a ton of features, along with a bunch of options, too. Read on for more!
Today I have in for review the new Nitecore LR50 lantern. It’s an interesting lantern, offering more than just…. lanterning. It has charging, and can serve as a powerbank, too!
Here’s Thrunite’s newest entry into the flashlight world. It’s a 21700 light, with three switches. I happen to love 21700 sized lights, and this one has some very nice features. Let’s see how it tests!
Two 10180 lights this week? I had this one slated for later, but after the Lumintop light being a bit of a disappointment, I wanted to get something better back in that category. This is the Astrolux M01, a light that’s been around for a long while. It’s been updated to “219c” but read on to see a little surprise….
Lumintop has a new little keychain flashlight available. It’s the format used by so many other lights but different in a couple of ways – body colors, and the Osram Pusra1 emitter! Read on for more info!
Today I have in for review a neat headlamp by Sofirn. This marks their first headlamp design! It’s an 18650 light with an e-switch on the head end, and on-board charging. Quite a release as a first headlamp! Read on for testing.
