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!
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!
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.
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 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.
Two 10180 lights this week? I had this one slated for later, but after the Lumintop light being a bit of a disappointment, I wanted to get something better back in that category. This is the Astrolux M01, a light that’s been around for a long while. It’s been updated to “219c” but read on to see a little surprise….
For the longest time I’ve wanted to try the Dragon driver. Out of all the lights I’ve ever had, I’ve never managed to snag one that came with a Dragon driver. But I did recently get the MechForce MechTorch host, so I went and purchased a Dragon driver with the intention of installing it myself, into this host. You can see from yesterday’s post that this was successful, so now I have a flashlight with a Dragon driver, for testing! Read on for more!
There was a group buy organized on reddit of this special run of the Aurora series… It was this Nichia version, with a modified UI. I got my copy recently and I’ve been playing with and testing it. It’s similar enough to the older ones that this review will be brief[er] on text, but with description of differences.
I reviewed a few lights for RovyVon, and one of those was the E300S. That light has Cree XP-G3, one of my least favorite current emitters, and after the input from my review (and let’s be humble, probably other sources), RovyVon released a Nichia option! This review is largely the same as that original, with the main difference being the emitters.
Banggood asked if there was anything I’d like to review. I have been interested to see what Rey has done with the newer Pineapples, and so they sent the Pineapple Update. I reviewed the original Pineapple. I liked the original Pineapple! Let’s see how this one’s improved!
