A while back Thrunite released the TC15, a 18650 light with built in charging and an indicating switch. Thrunite made a special edition of the TC15 with youtuber The Outsider. Check out that channel! I’ve never heard of it but to be honest it looks pretty cool. Here’s a test of the customized The Outsider edition of the Thrunite TC15!
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.
Wowtac has a new wall-of-light in a 26650 format light. Wowtac has made some other great lights, with “technical support by Thrunite.” Here’s my review of the Wowtac A5!
I have a long history of enjoying Skilhunt lights. In particular the UI but I also loved so many of the iterations of the H03… This is a new 14500 light which boasts on-board charging, includes a cell, and also works with NiMH. Read on for more testing!
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!
Today I have in for review a very feature-rich light by Fenix. First off, it’s a 21700 light, which is great. It also has on-board charging (via USB-C), dual switches, and some other cool features. Read on to see how it tests out!
Official Specs and Features Here’s a link to the official product page. Versions This review is for one specific dropin, but KDLITKER has many p60…
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 reviewed the FT03 a while back, but that was the SST40 flavor. BangGood wanted a review of the XHP50.2 version as well, so they sent this one over for review. The light is fundamentally the same, but with quite a different emitter. Read on for more! Or just hit up the table to see some differences.
Today I have the DX3B Clicky, one of the many lights in the DX3B series. This one packs a ton of features, along with a bunch of options, too. Read on for more!
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.
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!!
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!
Here’s Thrunite’s newest entry into the flashlight world. It’s a 21700 light, with three switches. I happen to love 21700 sized lights, and this one has some very nice features. Let’s see how it tests!
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.
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 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!
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.
BangGood sent a light from probably the most popular, inexpensive enthusiast brands: Convoy. This is the Convoy M3, a “wall of light” 26650 cell light, and one that’s been discussed excitedly recently. Here’s my testing and thoughts; hope you enjoy!
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.
