FocusWorks Axis Micro Mini (Stonewashed Bronze) Fidget Spinner Review

Occasionally I get a wild hair to buy a random product like this one.  I already know I like FocusWorks from the Eryx review.  And I like small spinners too, particularly ones with these ball bearings.  So during a sale I purchased this Axis Micro Mini in stonewashed bronze, and thought I’d throw out some photos and thoughts on it.

RovyVon A29 Brass Flashlight Review

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.

RovyVon A28 Flashlight Review

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.

Lumintop FW3C Andúril Flashlight Review

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 A4 V2 Flashlight Review

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 EDC18 Flashlight Review

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!

MecArmy GP1 Fidget Spinner Review

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!

Custom ReyLight Gemini with Crescendo UI Flashlight Review

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 A3x Flashlight Review

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!

Thrunite T10T V2 CutleryLover Flashlight Review

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!

Folomov EDC C1 v3 Flashlight Review

I reviewed the Folomov EDC C1 a while back.  For me it was a good light – I didn’t experience some problems many others experienced. …

Nite Ize DoohicKey Key Chain Knife Review

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 A23 Flashlight Review

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.

Thrunite TC15 “The Outsider” Edition Flashlight Review

A while back Thrunite released the TC15, a 18650 light with built in charging and an indicating switch.  Thrunite made a special edition of the TC15 with youtuber The Outsider.  Check out that channel!  I’ve never heard of it but to be honest it looks pretty cool.  Here’s a test of the customized The Outsider edition of the Thrunite TC15!

Sofirn C01S AAA Flashlight Review (three versions)

A while back Sofirn released a tiny little AAA light.  No TIR, no reflector…. basically a bare 5mm led (ok there was a tiny cone reflector built in but it did approximately nothing.)  It was awesome, and it was the Sofirn C01.  

But it lacked.  It had only one mode and the beam was useful for a limited set of circumstances.  Fortunately Sofirn updated that light – same body but with a TIR, a two mode twisty UI, and importantly, a different emitter.  Here’s my testing of that light, the Sofirn C01S.

Skilhunt M150 Flashlight Review

I have a long history of enjoying Skilhunt lights.  In particular the UI but I also loved so many of the iterations of the H03…  This is a new 14500 light which boasts on-board charging, includes a cell, and also works with NiMH.  Read on for more testing!
