I hope 2020 has been a great year for you! It’s been a great gear year, that’s for certain. Notably we got a redesigned TorchLAB BOSS, with many advancements there. We also saw more widespread acceptance of USB-C charging, and emitters like the Samsung LH351d helped us have the best of many good aspects a flashlight can offer.
For ages now people have been after Olight to create a lantern. Well Olight listened! And now we have the Olantern. It’s a LED lantern with a very classic look – iconic even. Read on for some thoughts, more photos, and a bit of testing!
XTAR has updated one of their fun little “handheld lantern” type lights, and I have one in for testing! It’s the RC2-200, and offers two white modes, RGB, and even some disco modes too! Read on for some thoughts and testing.
Today I have in for review the new Nitecore LR50 lantern. It’s an interesting lantern, offering more than just…. lanterning. It has charging, and can serve as a powerbank, too!
Today I have in for review another Nitecore, but from an unusual source. This one’s from Banggood. This is one of those lipstick lantern style lights, and accepts AA sized cells.
Neal over at NealsGadgets sent a new Lumintop my way. It’s an update to the EDC05… Quite an update too, because this one adds some…
Today I have for review something we don’t see too much of. A lantern! This one’s made by Fenix, is powered by a single 18650, and has two types of use – lantern and “down” light, too! Read on to see how it tests.
While this is a light, it’s not really a typical flashlight. And to be honest I’ve had it on a shelf to review for a while and I’m going to put it on the “Tuesday” (aka “not a flashlight”) review day. So here are my thoughts on this little solar powered hanging light, the Zanflare SB-6039.
This lantern came to my attention through many discussions about how great it was. I wasn’t initially interested, but I asked GearBest to send one over. Zanflare is the GearBest housebrand, and they obliged my request! Here’s my review of this cool little lantern.
There’s another entry in the …. let’s call it the “USB dongle charger” list. This is the Nitecore LC10, which is similar to other dongle chargers, but adds a few new features! There’s an in-line lantern, and the poles are reversible on this charger. Read on for more!
