Fenix HM65R Headlamp Review

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!

Nitecore NU17 Headlamp Review

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.

Malkoff M61L P60 Dropin with Cree XP-G2 (CW) Review

After my Surefire G2 review, I talked to Gene Malkoff about sending some LED replacements.  He agreed and sent the M61L, which is suited for the nitrolon body of the Surefire.  He also threw in the package the big brother of the M61L, the M61, which is similar aside from the “L” – where “L” stands for “low output.”

Nitecore NU25 Headlamp Review

I’ve reviewed a bunch of Nitecore lights, but somehow this little headlamp slipped under the radar.  Nitecore reached out, and soon this diminutive three emitter, high CRI, lightweight headlamp was in my hands!  This is my kind of light, so I’m interested to see if it’s any good!

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!

Nitecore TINI Cu Flashlight Review

Nitecore has recently released a couple of special edition small lights, the full copper TIP and TINI.  While I’ve reviewed the TINI before, I thought a full copper version might warrant an updated review!

Maratac PCL Brass Keychain Flashlight Review

Everyone probably knows by now I enjoy brass lights.  All kinds, all sizes…. I recently acquired the Maratac PCL in Brass.  I don’t like these as keychain lights, but they’re fun lights to keep around.  They call it the Personal Carry Light, and here are my thoughts!

MecArmy SGN7 Keychain Flashlight Review

Seems that I’ve been on a keychain light kick lately, and here’s another one!  Well, in some sense, anyway.  This is more of a rectangular light with unusual features….   Also my first MecArmy light in basically forever (the other being the PT16, which I really liked.)  Read on for more info and thoughts about this MecArmy SGN7!

Nitefox K3 Flashlight Review

Truth is, I really only like one kind of twisty light.  That happens to be triple A pocket lights.  Nightfox wanted to send another of their lights for review (the UT20) and I asked that they include this little twisty.  So here’s how that one pans out!  (The UT20 will likely be finished later this week.)
