Convoy T2 Flashlight Review

Convoy has added a small AA light to their lineup.  It’s a small version of the Convoy S2+, and called the T2.  It’s literally a shrunken S2+, which is fantastic, but lacks Li-ion support.  Read on for more!

SolarForce L2M and L2C P60 Host Review, and Solarforce Drop-In Review

A long time ago, in a land far far away, emitters were expensive, and modding was hard and unusual.  And sites with modding supplies were rare!

Back then, there were P60 light.  Buy a host, buy one or many drop-ins, and boom, tons of options!  P60 lights were an easy way to try different emitters or modes or whatever, without actual modification.

They still are!  Though modding is possibly more common now, and certainly easier (due to tons of helpful videos etc), P60 is still around and available.  So that’s what I’m reviewing today!  Some of the most common P60 hosts, and one of their available drop-ins.

Nightwatch Seeker Ns22 Flashlight Review

Neal from Neal’s Gadgets got in touch with me recently about having a look at some lights.  I agreed, and I’m excited; Neal is the only place to get cool items!  
Today I have the first of a few items Neal sent – it’s the Nightwatch Seeker Ns22.  This is a thrower in 18650 format, with a bunch of unusual emitter options.  It’s a simple light – the key to it is all these emitters!

Sofirn C8F 21700 Flashlight Review

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!

XTAR D36 5800 Flashlight Review

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!
