Fireflies PL47 Flashlight Review

The latest review item I have from Neal’s Gadgets is another Fireflies light.  This is the PL47, a right angle 21700 light.  It’s a “headlamp” in the sense that it ships with a headband, but most uses will likely not include it being an actual headlamp.  I’m excited to have and test it; read on for more!

Astrolux S43 Flashlight Review

I’ve reviewed many iterations of this light.  I did the S42 not that long ago.  And one of my very first reviews was of the Manker E14 (which I later sold, and hugely regretted selling).  
This is yet another update on that platform, with 219c emitters, and some other improvements.  Read on for more!

Fireflies ROT66 Flashlight Review

Believe it or not, I buy quite a few lights.  More often than not those lights have Nichia emitters.  In this case, the light has nine nichia emitters (and a few other type too).  This light is by a new company on the block who’s hitting quite hard.  This is the FireFlies ROT66.

Sofirn Q8 Flashlight Review

I already reviewed this light once.  That time, it was the BLF Q8.  I liked that light then.  I saw that Sofirn had a version of that light, and it was rumored that they manufactured the original BLF Q8, so I wanted to see if this version was “close enough.”  Read on to find out!
