Nitecore has long has a “Tiny Monster” line of lights. I haven’t handled a bunch of them but today I have the new TM9K, which boasts a brief 9500 lumen output, a built in cell, and on-board USB-C charging. Looks like a pretty neat light! Read on for some testing!
JETBeam has a new headlamp available – the HR10. It’s a complete package (cell included) and has built-in, USB-C charging, and an indicating switch! Read on for more testing of this full featured headlamp.
Lumintop is now offering an updated version of the ever-popular Tool AA light – the 2.0 version is made of titanium, and offers some neat features! Read on!
Nitecore has released a new headlamp, which incorporates some now-common features in unusual ways. It’s a dual emitter headlamp, with one CW and one WW emitter. Read on for how it works, and some testing!
Wowtac sent this new A1S for review. It’s a Cree XP-L HD dual switch light, most notable for it’s low price. To wit, it’s not breaking new ground, but it’s inexpensive! Read on for 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!
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!
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’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!
BLF A6 review, you say? Yep, BLF A6 review. Sure, it’s been a while since this light came out, and sure, other very compelling options exist. But I never reviewed it, and it’s good to have more datapoints out there about it! Read on to see how it stacks up.
Today I have in for review a neat headlamp by Sofirn. This marks their first headlamp design! It’s an 18650 light with an e-switch on the head end, and on-board charging. Quite a release as a first headlamp! Read on for testing.
Today I have another Amutorch straight from Neal. It’s a 21700 cell light, set up as a thrower, but with basically the same body as some other Amutorch lights. It’s a very simple light, with a low price to match.
Someone new has jumped onto the scene in flashlights! The guys at Custom Knife Factory (CKF, from here on out) – unsurprisingly more known for…
I’ve heard a lot about Malkoff lights – they’re highly regarded for being extremely robust, well built lights. I reached out to Malkoff, and they agreed to send a couple of lights! This is the first, a 16650 XP-L HD NW light.
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.
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!
Nitecore is expanding their “keychain” light selection. This time it’s with a bigger option, with 1000 lumen output, while retaining the dual switch interface.
Wuben is still hitting the scene hard. I’ve reviewed a Wuben before, the TO10R. The build quality is great, and I was interested to see if Wuben would keep that trend going. They sent the E05, which I believe has just been released, and here’s my review and test of it!
Today I have a light I’ve been geeked up about for a while now. Lumintop sent one to me for review, and I put it through the paces. Here’s the review of the Lumintop Geek! It has Nichia!!
