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.

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 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.
