CWF Dragon Driver (in MechForce MechTorch) Review

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!

How Do I: Install a Dragon Flashlight Driver

Hi There! I’ll be the second to tell you that I’m probably not qualified to write this post.  With that said, I did successfully install…

MechForce MechTorch Flashlight Copper Host Review

Today I have for review a bit of a departure from normal Wednesday flashlight reviews.  This is indeed a flashlight, but it’s just a host!  No guts are in this light (yet).  I’ve even mostly covered this light before in the review of the MechForce MechTorch Turbo, but I thought it might be interesting to see this light as a host, since it’s quite a nice host and available for purchase that way.

Nitecore NU25 Headlamp Review

I’ve reviewed a bunch of Nitecore lights, but somehow this little headlamp slipped under the radar.  Nitecore reached out, and soon this diminutive three emitter, high CRI, lightweight headlamp was in my hands!  This is my kind of light, so I’m interested to see if it’s any good!

BLF GT “Giggles” Flashlight Review

I’ve had the BLF GT for quite some time (it’s my oldest “review” piece, purchased way back in 2017).  But I think this light is interesting enough that it bears having a look!  I hope you don’t already know all you need to know about this >2000m thrower, and that this post will be interesting.  Read on!

Astrolux FT02 Flashlight Review

Up for review today is a neat light by Astrolux, sent to me by BangGood.  This is the FT02, a 21700 cell thrower with a Cree XHP35 HI.  Notably it has charging, and is available in a neutral tint.  Read on to see how it tests!

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 (Nichia!) Flashlight Review

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.

Reylight Pineapple (Updated) Flashlight Review

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!
