The great guys over at Illumn.com have the new Acebeam L17 in stock and wanted me to get some numbers on it. The Acebeam L17 is an Osram Flat White thrower similar to the E10, but in 18650 format. Read on for some thoughts and testing!
Thrunite has teamed up with The Outsider again to make a bigger version of the Thrunite TC15. It’s not just bigger though; it has some massive changes. The Thrunite TT20 The Outsider edition is available in red, uses a 21700 cell, and has a dual switch interface. It also churns out the lumens!! Read on for more thoughts and testing.
There’s a new US based seller of FireFly lights. This is a big change, since they’ll be handling warranty work too. Along with this change comes a change in name of the FireFly brand – it’s now FireFlyLite. They set an E01, and based on some news I’ve handled over at PhotonPhreaks.com, they have some very interesting lights upcoming! Read on for a review of the E01 they sent to me.
There’s a new seller in town! The US-based store MohrLumens.com has opened and is selling the likes of Convoy, Lumintop, and Sofirn lights. The benefit of course, is that the items are shipping from the US, so you’re likely to get your items much quicker than from other (even official) channels. MohrLumens.com sent the Convoy C8+ for a bit of testing, and I’m hopeful that many more Convoy reviews are on tap!
Klarus has updated one of their lights, and released the XT11GT Pro. This is a tactical light with USB-C charging, and a paddle switch, and other nice features. Read on for some testing!
In my hands for review today is another light from Neal at NealsGadgets.com. I’m not sure if this is a Neal house brand or what but I don’t see the Nightwatch brand many other places. This is the Nightwatch NSX4, a four emitter light which accepts a very unusual cell size: 26800. These are available from Neal with a special charger that supports this larger size. Read on for testing and thoughts!
I finally got a LEP! This is the Weltool W4 and it’s a fantastic option in the LEP field… LEP (Laser Excited Phosphor) lights are just pencil thin beam massive throwers – limited output (this one’s around 560 lumens) but throws a massive claimed 2.6km!!! I’m super pleased to be able to present this review for you and thanks to Weltool and KillzoneFlashlights.com for sending this one over for review!
Today I have in the Pro version of a light many people already reviewed. This is the Brinyte PT18 Pro, an 18650 light with a Cree XHP35 HD, designed for long weapon use. I have a few optional accessories, which you’ll see below.
Today I have in my hands a little light from Acebeam that packs quite a throwy punch! The E10 is a 26350 cell dedicated thrower, and quite a little thrower it is. Read on for some testing and thoughts.
My second (and last on-hand) Brinyte flashlight. This one’s kind of interesting, since it features wireless charging and is a complete package light. The wireless charging is a neat feature – when power is cut to the charge base, the light comes on automatically! Read on for more thoughts about that, and testing!
