Today I have in for review a light I’ve been looking forward to (and pestering Sofirn for) for a long while now: The C8F 21700. I reviewed the original C8F (and that review didn’t go so well). Sofirn responsively made some changes to the light, and now it uses a 21700 cell instead of a 18650, and I think generally has some build quality improvements. Read on to see if that pans out!
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!
Today I have another charger by XTAR in for review. I have reviewed a number of “simple” chargers by XTAR (the D2 and D4, for example). This is simple in the same way, but adds Quick Charge 3 connectivity. That means it should be capable of faster (much faster?) charging that other (non QC3) chargers. Let’s see if that pans out!
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.
My first “real” cell charger was a Nitecore D4. Nitecore came close to replacing it a while back with the SC4, but they’ve certainly done it with these new two chargers – the USM2 and USM4. These chargers (most importantly?) fit 21700 cells, among other awesome features. Read on!
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!
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!
