Imalent, maker of one of my favorite lights (the DX80) recently sent me this new LD10 light, which has one of my favorite emitters (Cree XP-L HI). It’s a neat little light, but let’s test it out, shall we?
It’s not often that a single emitter (with reflector) light comes available in what we’ll generically call the “custom” market, but when Grant Spitz of Deadwood Custom Works announced the aluminum version of his popular Huckleberry he threw out the option of a 219b single. I jumped on that. This is a “full review” but at the same time there are some caveats, due to H17f and programming and… I’ll get into that later. Read on!
Lumintop is now offering an updated version of the ever-popular Tool AA light – the 2.0 version is made of titanium, and offers some neat features! Read on!
Wowtac has released another 18650 light. This time it’s a dual switch Cree XP-L HI light, with an indicating switch and on-board (micro-USB) charging. Read on for some testing!
If you haven’t checked out Wowtac, you definitely should!
I reviewed and enjoyed the FocusWorks Eryx, and Jordy makes many other fidgety things. I got interested in this spinner, so I purchased this Axis Micro Mini, and thought I’d throw out some photos and thoughts on it.
Another RovyVon! This time it’s the brass version, and one I bought for myself. That’s a testament to the other two from this series I’ve reviewed – the A23 and A28 – I liked them enough to put my own money into a version. The A29, brass of course.
I find no better way to start 2020 than with a post about a RovyVon light. RovyVon was huge for me in 2019, and I have this post and more upcoming from them. This is the A28, a clear body light which has two secondary emitters – red and UV.
A Fun Fund Friday review of a light you all probably already own and have moved past… The Lumintop FW3C – yes another FW review! My copy of this light has been in my possession for a while now, so shipped with an early version of Andúril, and the review might not be the most relevant any more.
Wowtac has been bringing the hits lately, and most importantly, at a nice price. Today I have a version 2 of the A4 – really it’s practically a different light. This one’s a single cell (26650) and smaller head. Maybe a scaled down version of the original A4? Anyway, read on for thoughts and testing!
Lumintop had great success with the FW series, and expanded it greatly. They also went a different directly – a more standard light but with an e-switch on the side. That’s the EDC18, and here’s my testing of it!
I once saw MecArmy as a flashlight company. The more I see their Facebook and Instagram posts, the more I realize they’re actually a gadget company. That’s certainly the case with the item I have in my hand today – the MecArmy GP1 fidget spinner. Appointed with anodized titanium, and very fidgety…. Read on for some thoughts and pics!
Wowtac has an interesting new 18650 light out. It’s a shorty, with a short reflector and a Luminus SST-40. It boasts on-board charging too, and includes a cell in the package. Read on for some testing!
My Fun Fund Friday review for today is of a light I couldn’t not own. It’s an orange coated ReyLight called the Gemini. Now, this particular copy that I purchased myself, is from the secondary market, and the UI has been swapped entirely for something custom. So I’m mainly showing my evaluation of the physical light itself and I’ll probably also comment some on the UI, which is ToyKeeper’s Crescendo. Hope that type post interests you, and please read on!
RovyVon has released an update to their very popular Aurora A2/A3 series of lights. RovyVon sent over an updated A3 light – the A3x. This is as much a new light as it is an update, but addresses issues raised from the initial release. Have a look, and see if the improvements are compelling!
The Thrunite T10T has been a popular light if for nothing else than just as a good conversation piece. It’s a titanium AA/14500 light with a side e-switch. Youtube personality cutlerylover worked with Thrunite to make a titanium version of the venerable T10 v2, and thus we have this T10T V2 cutlerylover. Read on for thoughts and testing!
I recently snagged this venerable classic by Surefire. My second Surefire…. This is the Surefire Titan Plus, a coated brass LED light in AAA twisty format. Read on for thoughts and testing!
I’m a flashlight guy, no secret, but any time I have a light on my person, I also have a knife. But I’m not a typical knife guy – I strongly prefer really small knives. It’s a never ending quest. I saw this little guy and knew I had to have it. This Nite Ize DoohicKey knife isn’t the perfect knife for me, but it’s the one that I’ve carried for months now.
RovyVon has released a new, bigger light. It’s sort of a keychain light; bigger than their popular keychain series of lights, anyway.
This one’s still an Aurora. The aluminum you’ll see here is the A23, but there are others.
