There’s a new titanium keychain light on the market, by a brand you probably haven’t heard of. This is the Rover Camel Ta6132, and it’s a pretty well featured little light, that also happens to be keychain size. Read on for some testing and thoughts!
There was a point where I’d have said the FW series of Lumintop lights was played out (or “overdone.”) I’d have said the FW1A Pro was unnecessary. …. A 18650 light with Andúril, a Cree XHP50.2 under a reflector – what’s the point?…. You’ll have to read on to see what I think after having it. 😀
Imalent, maker of one of my favorite lights (the DX80) recently sent me this new LD10 light, which has one of my favorite emitters (Cree XP-L HI). It’s a neat little light, but let’s test it out, shall we?
It’s not often that a single emitter (with reflector) light comes available in what we’ll generically call the “custom” market, but when Grant Spitz of Deadwood Custom Works announced the aluminum version of his popular Huckleberry he threw out the option of a 219b single. I jumped on that. This is a “full review” but at the same time there are some caveats, due to H17f and programming and… I’ll get into that later. Read on!
Lumintop is now offering an updated version of the ever-popular Tool AA light – the 2.0 version is made of titanium, and offers some neat features! Read on!
Wowtac has released another 18650 light. This time it’s a dual switch Cree XP-L HI light, with an indicating switch and on-board (micro-USB) charging. Read on for some testing!
If you haven’t checked out Wowtac, you definitely should!
Here’s a version 2 light by Nitecore, where I have surprisingly never reviewed the first version. It’s the TUBE2.0; a slim keychain light, with a bare 5mm emitter and ramping. Read on for some testing!
Another RovyVon! This time it’s the brass version, and one I bought for myself. That’s a testament to the other two from this series I’ve reviewed – the A23 and A28 – I liked them enough to put my own money into a version. The A29, brass of course.
I find no better way to start 2020 than with a post about a RovyVon light. RovyVon was huge for me in 2019, and I have this post and more upcoming from them. This is the A28, a clear body light which has two secondary emitters – red and UV.
Nitecore has released a new headlamp, which incorporates some now-common features in unusual ways. It’s a dual emitter headlamp, with one CW and one WW emitter. Read on for how it works, and some testing!
Armytek has made an official Wizard Pro with Nichia 144A. It’s aptly named the Wizard Pro Nichia Warm, and here is my testing of it!
Lumintop had great success with the FW series, and expanded it greatly. They also went a different directly – a more standard light but with an e-switch on the side. That’s the EDC18, and here’s my testing of it!
Wowtac has an interesting new 18650 light out. It’s a shorty, with a short reflector and a Luminus SST-40. It boasts on-board charging too, and includes a cell in the package. Read on for some testing!
My Fun Fund Friday review for today is of a light I couldn’t not own. It’s an orange coated ReyLight called the Gemini. Now, this particular copy that I purchased myself, is from the secondary market, and the UI has been swapped entirely for something custom. So I’m mainly showing my evaluation of the physical light itself and I’ll probably also comment some on the UI, which is ToyKeeper’s Crescendo. Hope that type post interests you, and please read on!
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!
Wowtac makes some solid, inexpensive lights, and they’ve updated their A2 headlamp. Wowtac has released the A2S, which almost doubles the output across all modes, increases throw, but retains the nice form factor of the headlamp. Read on for full testing of the Wowtac A2S!
Today I have in my hands a new light by Fenix. It’s the E30R, and it’s essentially a 18650 version of the E18R, which I liked quite a bit. It’s also quite a bit like the LD30, which I said would be better if it was only an e-switch light, not a dual switch light. The E30R is basically the LD30 as an e-switch only light. (So I already expect to like it!)
