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.

Acebeam EC65 Flashlight Review

After talking with the guys over at KillzoneFlashlights, and reviewing their 219b BLF-348, we got into some more serious discussions.  They sent a few more lights.  Two by Acebeam, and one of their own.  Here’s the first of those, the Acebeam EC65.

Nitecore TM10K Flashlight Review

Here’s a light I was so excited to get, and one I’m very pleased to have.  It’s quite special – Nitecore’s highest output light at a claimed 10,000 lumens.  I’ve been messing around with it for a while, and here are my tests and thoughts!

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!

Nitecore MH12GTS Flashlight Review

Another Nitecore enters the mix!  This is a tube light with an indicating switch and on-board charging.  This one adds an interesting thing to the list though: waterproof charge port!  Read on!

Nitecore Concept 2 Flashlight Review

Nitecore has released a second in their “Concept” series.  This is the Concept 2.  A four cell, four emitter with on-board charging and an indicating switch.  It looks pretty spectacular on paper, especially when it’s noted that this tiny light is Nitecore’s highest output light to date!  Let’s see how it breaks down.

FidgetHQ Aonic 18350 and 18650 Flashlight Review

There’s a new maker in town!  These guys are FidgetHQ, makers of some fine and very popular fidget spinners in brass, stainless, copper, and titanium.  They know how to get things done, and they’ve set their eyes on flashlight.  This is their first offering, a triple emitter, 18650/18350 light, with Bistro firmware.  Here’s my review of this light!

Lumintop ODF30 Flashlight Review

I’ve started talking to Lumintop directly, but this ODF30 isn’t one they’d planned on sending.  GearBest sent it out, and here’s my test!  It’s a 26650 light with a Cree XHP70.2 emitter – a category that seems to be getting more interest lately.  Read on!

Olight X7R Marauder Flashlight Review

Olight has iterated the X7, and added charging.  I reviewed the X7 ages ago (back in 2016), and was generally pleased.  Let’s see how (if?) Olight has improved on this venerable design, by adding recharging and an indicating side switch.

Rofis MR70 Flashlight/Powerbank Review

Rofis is a new (ish) brand to me, and tends to bring new and interesting things to the table.  This is a reasonably small 26650 light, with a Cree XHP70.2, on-board charging, and can act as a powerbank!  That’s a lot of features, so let’s see how well they actually work.

Thrunite TC20 Flashlight Review

There’s a new light on the block from Thrunite, and I weaseled a review unit out of them (just kidding, they sent it willingly!!).  I’m excited to have this one, because there’s not a ton of info out there on it yet, and it’s nice to have an early copy!

Nitecore HC33 Headlamp Review

Nitecore sent out another headlamp, this time a single 18650 light.  I happen to really like angle lights, and I’m considerably into 18650 lights as well, so I’m interested to see how this little light performs.  This is the Nitecore HC33.

I’ve gotten a taste for bigger lights and even though this isn’t a new light, I was excited to get it from GearBest.  And I happen to typically like JETBeam lights, too.  So here’s the JETBeam T6!

Lumintop SD75 Flashlight Review

Today I’m reviewing a light that isn’t even a new light.  I asked for it, and GearBest provided.  I have liked the looks and specs of this light for a while and I’m pleased to have one on hand to test.  Let’s see if it stands up to my expectations.

Fenix just announced/released this Cree XHP70 light, and they set out to find a few reviewers.  I got lucky and was selected.  I’m excited to have this light from Fenix for review.  A Fenix light was one of my very first “real” flashlight purchases ever!

BLF Q8 Flashlight Review

The list on BLF to preorder this light was long, and long ago.  After getting on the list, I promptly forgot and never checked back.  When the hype train started regarding orders for this light, it was with bitterness and spite that I started the “Q8 Hate.” (In jest of course.)  Much to my surprise, when I checked I was on the list!  I ordered the light, and [spoiler] love this light!
