Lumintop has been busy expanding on the FW line of lights. First there was the FW3A, which I reviewed and like a lot. Then there were some special metal editions (titanium, copper). Now there’s a longer single emitter version, which I’m reviewing today: The FW1A.
Always on the hunt for the perfect orange flashlight, recently I found this one by Coast. It looks like a fun light, so I reached out to Coast, and they sent this one (and another one) out for review. This is my testing of the Coast Polysteel 600R, a plastic zoomy with batteries included.
Today I have in for review a single 18650 thrower. This one’s unusual though. I have never seen the emitter before (an Osram), and this thing really throws.
JETBeam’s new PC20 is a dual switch, 21700 tube light with USB-C charging. An interesting weapon light. Read on for testing! Official Specs and Features…
Lumintop, maker of all things awesome, has released a new bike light. The B01 runs on a single 21700 cell, has a beam shaped specifically for bike riding, and includes on-board charging. Read on for more!
Nitecore has a new ultralight headlamp, with high output, high CRI, and red all built in! It’s smaller than the previous iteration of this light, so would likely be great for long runs and the like.
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.
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!
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.
Wowtac has a new wall-of-light in a 26650 format light. Wowtac has made some other great lights, with “technical support by Thrunite.” Here’s my review of the Wowtac A5!
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!
Nitecore’s just released a light with what appears to be a built in 18650. It’s fairly low cost, and can be considered a “complete package” light, and has features that can make it a compelling entry point to flashlights. Read on for more!
Today I have in for review a very feature-rich light by Fenix. First off, it’s a 21700 light, which is great. It also has on-board charging (via USB-C), dual switches, and some other cool features. Read on to see how it tests out!
Official Specs and Features Here’s a link to the official product page. Versions This review is for one specific dropin, but KDLITKER has many p60…
Since my early days of talking to Mechforce about flashlights, they mentioned doing this 21700 light. I talked to them a bunch about it but more than anything, I think they took comments (including many of mine specifically) about the MechTorch to heart. They’ve just released this 21700 light, named the Tactical Suppressor – basically a [Hot Rod in the Turbo format] tube 21700 light. Read on for testing!
I reviewed the FT03 a while back, but that was the SST40 flavor. BangGood wanted a review of the XHP50.2 version as well, so they sent this one over for review. The light is fundamentally the same, but with quite a different emitter. Read on for more! Or just hit up the table to see some differences.
Today I have the DX3B Clicky, one of the many lights in the DX3B series. This one packs a ton of features, along with a bunch of options, too. Read on for more!
I mentioned the other day that the In Your Pocket (“IYP”) line has expanded recently…. I reviewed the IYP07 already, but today I have the IYP25, which is similar to the rest but is a 2xAA format.
