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!
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!
Going Gear, the great store in Georgia sent me a light I’ve been itching to get my hands on… The Acebeam K75 – I’m sure you’ve heard of it, or if you’ve looked out your door at night you’ve probably seen me shining mine up into the air. This is a 18650×4 dedicated thrower with a Luminus SBT-90 Gen2, an uncommon emitter. Read on for some thoughts and testing!
Breaking out a standard classic for today’s post-Thanksgiving Fun Fund Friday review. It’s a twisty 10180 light by the well known Steve Ku of Veleno Designs. This is my second of these, and despite being available for years, they’re still being sold today!
The Folomov C2 is a tiny light, almost like a shrunken Olight S1 Mini, with a 14300 liion cell. It’s a nice little package; read on for more testing and thoughts!
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!
This is the Wuben TO50R, which started on BLF as “The Flashlight.” It claimed at the time 2500 lumens (bumped to 2800 now), high CRI, on-board charging, a cell included, and can be used as a powerbank, too.
Acebeam has dropped a new headlamp in the form of a three emitter 18650 light with USB-C charging. It’s a nice looking device with three emitter options. Read on for more thoughts and testing!
Wowtac makes some solid, inexpensive lights, and they’ve updated their A2 headlamp. Wowtac has released the A2S, which almost doubles the output across all modes, increases throw, but retains the nice form factor of the headlamp. Read on for full testing of the Wowtac A2S!
An 18650 headlamp! This could be a good category, mainly falling to whether the light is well balanced against it’s head straps. This one is, and works great. It has dual emitters and USB-C charging, which is a nice bonus. It’s the Fenix HM65R – read on for more thoughts and testing!
Today I have in my hands a new light by Fenix. It’s the E30R, and it’s essentially a 18650 version of the E18R, which I liked quite a bit. It’s also quite a bit like the LD30, which I said would be better if it was only an e-switch light, not a dual switch light. The E30R is basically the LD30 as an e-switch only light. (So I already expect to like it!)
Nitecore has a new light out – their very first 21700 light, in fact! (Well, aside from the TM10K, in which the 21700 was built in.) The New P12 is a tactical, dual switch, with a package that includes Nitecore’s first 21700 cell. Read on for more!
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!
Today I have in for review the second of two Coast lights. This is the Coast HP7R, a custom lithium ion or 4xAAA battery light. It’s a zoomie, and most importantly, has a very fetching orange color body. Read on for some testing and thoughts!
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!
