Sofirn SP40 Headlamp Review

Amutorch X9 Flashlight Review

One of a few lights I recently received from NealsGadgets was another Amutorch.  A triple, but an unusual one – it’s a 26650 cell, broad head triple with an indicating switch, and on-board charging.

Thrunite T1 Flashlight Review

Thrunite has released something I’ve wanted for a long time now.  This is a pocket friendly 18350 light, with an e-switch.  It’s a good production version counterpoint to many of the “custom” triples out there, most of which have mechanical tail clickies.

Imalent RT70 Flashlight ReReview

In for review today is another Imalent, in the style of other Imalent’s I’ve had before (RT35, for example).  The RT70 differs from the RT35 though, because while the RT35 was a thrower, the RT70 is much more of a mix/wall-of-light type light.  The Cree XHP70 makes that happen.  Read on for more!

JETBeam JET-RRT01 Flashlight Review

Nitecore NU25 Headlamp Review

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!

Rofis TC1 Keychain Flashlight Review

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!

RovyVon A8 Y Flashlight Review

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.

RovyVon E300S (Nichia!) Flashlight Review

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.

Olight Warrior X Flashlight Review

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!
