Another Friday! Another Fun Fund Friday! Today I have in my hands a light I bought for myself…. Nostalgia, new emitters,… plenty of reasons. But ultimately it came down to someone (u/tebeve, on reddit) lending me his copy of this light, and me realizing I really wanted to have one of my own. This is a MagLite Micromag, which has been modified by kyfishguy on BLF. The mods are extensive! Read on to see about them, and this light.
For the longest time I’ve wanted to try the Dragon driver. Out of all the lights I’ve ever had, I’ve never managed to snag one that came with a Dragon driver. But I did recently get the MechForce MechTorch host, so I went and purchased a Dragon driver with the intention of installing it myself, into this host. You can see from yesterday’s post that this was successful, so now I have a flashlight with a Dragon driver, for testing! Read on for more!
I’ve had the BLF GT for quite some time (it’s my oldest “review” piece, purchased way back in 2017). But I think this light is interesting enough that it bears having a look! I hope you don’t already know all you need to know about this >2000m thrower, and that this post will be interesting. Read on!
BLF has conspired yet again to design a light that it’s impossible to not want. This time it’s a tiny AAA light, made by Sofirn, with a Yuji emitter, and very high CRI. The single mode is very low output, but with very long runtimes, and two temperatures available. It’s also very inexpensive!
A long time ago, in a land far far away, emitters were expensive, and modding was hard and unusual. And sites with modding supplies were rare!
Back then, there were P60 light. Buy a host, buy one or many drop-ins, and boom, tons of options! P60 lights were an easy way to try different emitters or modes or whatever, without actual modification.
They still are! Though modding is possibly more common now, and certainly easier (due to tons of helpful videos etc), P60 is still around and available. So that’s what I’m reviewing today! Some of the most common P60 hosts, and one of their available drop-ins.
I was lucky enough a while back to get in on a Sinner drop directly from Sinner himself. So this light came to me directly from United Arab Emirates. I was excited to snag it, but you don’t have to get these that way. There is at least one site that drops these lights on occasion. This is my review of the Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight.
I have a penchant for snagging things I don’t need, which meet the criteria for things I like. I like brass triples. This light by VenomDD wasn’t even on my radar, but I found a great price on a copy, so I snagged it. (Thanks for pointing me to it, u/emarkd!)
Yes, this is another triple. Another brass triple. Does it cut the mustard? Read on to find out!
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.
Anyone reading this site probably knows about the throw King, the BLF GT. Recently Lumintop made a little brother, the BLF GT Mini. This was an instant buy for me, and today I have a little review of it!
