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!
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 has released a new lantern “lipstick style” light. This time it’s in the 18650 format. It was the LA10 before, in AA format. I never had that light so I went in with no preconceived notions. This is essentially billed as a dual purpose light; EDC and Lantern.
Nitecore has a new lantern out, with some unusual features. This is the LA30, which has an internal pouch cell (lipo), and can also run off 2 AA sized cells, too. It’s a nice combo, and has red and white emitters, too!
