Olight Seeker 2 Flashlight Review

Today I have in my second Olight for the week.  It’s not necessarily a bleeding-edge new model, but the Seeker 2 is a still-available, still-relevant 21700 light worth having a test of.  Read on!

Acebeam TK18 AL Flashlight Review

Here’s another Acebeam light, very similar to the TK16 I’ve already reviewed.  This whole set of lights has different emitter options though, and runs on an 18650.  The UI is the same though.  If you liked the TK16 (like I did) then you’ll probably like the TK18 Al (like I… read on to find out.)

Reylight Krystal Flashlight Review

Today I am reviewing the Reylight Krystal.  This is a light I wanted for a long while but … well to be honest, not at “new” prices.  I finally found one used at an acceptable price.  I love many things about this light, and dislike a few.  Read on for thoughts and testing!!

Armytek Zippy Keychain Flashlight Review

Today I have a little keychain light from Armytek.  This is the Zippy, and I have the “Extended Kit” – see what that means later.  It’s a tiny thing!  Great for keychains but probably better as a reading headlamp.  Read on for some testing!

Casio G-Shock GMWB5000TCM-1 Watch Review

Since I started writing reviews back around 2015, I’ve wanted to include watches on my site.  Specifically G-Shocks, since that’s what I’m most interested in currently.  Many of my collection (50+) are used, so I don’t find it “fair” to review those (or even post photos in the manner seen here).  But this one is different.  It’s special in many ways, and I bought it brand new.  So I know it’s provenance and what’s happened to it since.  Truly this post is much more of a “look at this gorgeous watch” since I don’t plan to test many of the features of the watch.  But mainly, does it live up to the hype.  That I can answer!

BilletSPIN Thunderstorm Titanium Soul Pen Review

I have handled one BilletSPIN pen before and was impressed with it.  It was a heavy copy though – stainless and brass.  I love those two metals, but for a daily driving pen, I tend toward something lighter.  This answers that request – it’s titanium!  Also the clip is updated…. otherwise very similar pens.  Read on for more pics and thoughts!

XTAR PB2C Charger / Powerbank Review

There’s a new version of the convenient XTAR powerbank/charger.  It’s the PB2C, and adds USB-C charging.  Also relevant is what it takes away – cost.  This one is inexpensive!

Southern Grind Spider Monkey GLOW Series Black PVD Carbon Fiber Folding Knife Review

One of the bonuses working with Going Gear again comes in the fact that they are knife nuts.  See their newest video for more proof of that.  What’s better for me is that they’ve sent me a cool knife to handle, too.  This is the (long name warning) Southern Grind Spider Monkey.  It’s part of the GLOW series, and the blade is black PVD.  The scales are Carbon Fiber.  And they glow!  Just a lot going on in this knife… read on for more – but mostly carry on because there are a bunch of photos!!
