RovyVon A3x Flashlight Review

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!

RovyVon A23 Flashlight Review

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.

Sofirn C01S AAA Flashlight Review (three versions)

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.

Lumintop has expanded the In Your Pocket (“IYP”) series of lights by two recently.  There’s the new IYP25, which is a 2-up AA light, and the IYP07, which is a single AAA light.  Today I’m having a look at the IYP07…. a light I’m very excited about!!

Astrolux M01 Keychain Flashlight Review

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….

Lumintop EDC Pico Keychain Flashlight Review

Lumintop has a new little keychain flashlight available.  It’s the format used by so many other lights but different in a couple of ways – body colors, and the Osram Pusra1 emitter!  Read on for more info!

Acebeam TK16 (Osram Edition) Flashlight Review

Today I have in for review a light that has been highly anticipated, and well regarded, and one I’ve been extremely excited about reviewing.  Originally released in copper as a limited edition, the wider release of aluminum at a lower cost makes this an even more appealing light.

Rofis TC1 Keychain Flashlight Review

I have a fairly long history of liking lights by Rofis.  [Here are some other reviews.]  This is a new little light by Rofis, which uses a built in 10180 cell, has on-board charging, and a very unusual switch.  It looks like it might be something else but ultimately it’s just a capacitive switch.  Read on for more thoughts and info!

RovyVon A8 Y Flashlight Review

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.

RovyVon E300S Angel Eyes Flashlight Review

Here’s a light I’ve been excited about since I reviewed a light for RovyVon initially.  I since reviewed a couple more from the Aurora series (and like them!).  I was clued in during the prototype phase, but have only just gotten the review sample.  So here’s my review of the RovyVon triple!  The E300S!

Fenix E16 Flashlight Review

Going small is the big thing in 16340 lights lately, and Fenix has entered the game.  The Fenix E16 is a tiny light – definitely the smallest 16340 light I’ve handled (and I’d guess the very smallest on the market).  I’ve been using this one for a while, so read on for my thoughts!

Wuben E05 Flashlight Review

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!

RovyVon A2 IP Blue and A3 Gun Gray Flashlight Review

I was fortunate to continue the discourse with RovyVon, and they sent two more of these tiny Aurora keychain lights.  This time it’s the A2 and A3.  I’m reviewing them together because they really only differ in body material.  But they’re different from the A5 I already reviewed in that they don’t have secondary emitters.  Read on to see how they act!

RovyVon Aurora A5 Keychain Flashlight Review

The RovyVon lights have been popping up over and over, so I reached out to RovyVon on amazon about some review units.  I’d hoped to get a sampling of various iterations, but in the end RovyVon agreed to send the GITD version, the A5.

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!
