Tonight I have up for review another Luminus SST40 thrower review! This one has USB-C charging, and can use a few different cell types. It’s…
I’ve reviewed a bunch of Nitecore lights, but somehow this little headlamp slipped under the radar. Nitecore reached out, and soon this diminutive three emitter, high CRI, lightweight headlamp was in my hands! This is my kind of light, so I’m interested to see if it’s any good!
Up for review today is a neat light by Astrolux, sent to me by BangGood. This is the FT02, a 21700 cell thrower with a Cree XHP35 HI. Notably it has charging, and is available in a neutral tint. Read on to see how it tests!
I have a fairly long history of liking lights by Rofis. [Here are some other reviews.] This is a new little light by Rofis, which uses a built in 10180 cell, has on-board charging, and a very unusual switch. It looks like it might be something else but ultimately it’s just a capacitive switch. Read on for more thoughts and info!
There was a group buy organized on reddit of this special run of the Aurora series… It was this Nichia version, with a modified UI. I got my copy recently and I’ve been playing with and testing it. It’s similar enough to the older ones that this review will be brief[er] on text, but with description of differences.
I reviewed a few lights for RovyVon, and one of those was the E300S. That light has Cree XP-G3, one of my least favorite current emitters, and after the input from my review (and let’s be humble, probably other sources), RovyVon released a Nichia option! This review is largely the same as that original, with the main difference being the emitters.
Today I have for review something we don’t see too much of. A lantern! This one’s made by Fenix, is powered by a single 18650, and has two types of use – lantern and “down” light, too! Read on to see how it tests.
Olight has released a new tactical flashlight, and it sports an interesting feature. It’s the (one of the?) first flashlights with a vibration alert. Otherwise it’s a very dedicated tactical, throwy light. Read on to see how it tests!
I’ve long been a huge fan of the Skilhunt H03 – I should take it a step further: I have never reviewed a Skilhunt light that I didn’t like! I have also wanted the “C” version of the Skilhunt headlamp since I knew about the H02C. Finally I have one in my hands, and here’s the review of it!
Nitecore keeps dropping lights in the MH series. This time it’s a thrower, of the 2×18650 variety. And it has an interesting UI. Read on to find out more!
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!
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 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 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.
Nitecore is expanding their “keychain” light selection. This time it’s with a bigger option, with 1000 lumen output, while retaining the dual switch interface.
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!
Thrunite has a new light on the market. It’s an 18650 light, with on-board charging, but boasts an incredible 2300 lumens. Read on to see how this light tests, and if it hits its claim!
