Another year, another Nitecore!  This time it’s a new headlamp, with a whole host of emitters, including red and two high CRI secondary emitters.  Nitecore has a special sale going on this one, so the review is timely!

I finally got a message in to someone at Armytek, and they sent this Handy C1 Pro as a first review item.  This is a single-bay, Li-Ion/NiMH (!!) charger, with a USB-out function!  Read on for my first review of 2019, on an item I’ve had for almost 3 months!

Fenix E18R Flashlight Review

I’m pleased to have another Fenix light review.  This is a brand that seems underrepresented in (at least “my”) reviews, and I hope to get to reviewing more of them.  This is another small light, using a 16340 cell, with built in magnetic charging.  Read on!

XTAR D36 5800 Flashlight Review

XTAR has a new dive light out.  It’s an interesting light, with dual emitters that fits both flood and spotlight cases, and has a ridiculous output level.  There’s removable battery pack, OLED display, two switches – just a lot going on!  Read on to see how the light works!

Olight S1R II Baton and Olight S2R Baton II Flashlight Review

Olight has a couple of new, similar lights out. Updates of some older models, they are. These are the S1RII Baton, and the S2R Baton II. Yes, those are the official names. No, the 18650 version isn’t “S2RII Baton” – it’s actually “S2R Baton II,” while the 16340 version is the “S1RII Baton.”

Throughout this review, I’ve tried to always discuss the S1RII Baton first, followed by the S2R Baton II. The photos are generally laid out that way. The lights are similar enough that if I don’t specify, you may assume that the feature being discussed is shared by the two lights.

RovyVon E300S Angel Eyes Flashlight Review

Here’s a light I’ve been excited about since I reviewed a light for RovyVon initially.  I since reviewed a couple more from the Aurora series (and like them!).  I was clued in during the prototype phase, but have only just gotten the review sample.  So here’s my review of the RovyVon triple!  The E300S!

Astrolux S43 Flashlight Review

I’ve reviewed many iterations of this light.  I did the S42 not that long ago.  And one of my very first reviews was of the Manker E14 (which I later sold, and hugely regretted selling).  
This is yet another update on that platform, with 219c emitters, and some other improvements.  Read on for more!

Another Acebeam review today!  I do not have all that much experience with this brand, but what I have seen, I like.  This is a medium range 18650-sized thrower, with on-board charging, and dual switch.  Read on to see how it performs!
