Thrunite T1 Flashlight Review

Thrunite has released something I’ve wanted for a long time now.  This is a pocket friendly 18350 light, with an e-switch.  It’s a good production version counterpoint to many of the “custom” triples out there, most of which have mechanical tail clickies.

JETBeam JET RRT01 Flashlight Review

The new hottest light on the market seems to be the JETBeam RRT01.  It’s a rotary light!!  That’s very unusual, and I’m very pleased that JETBeam revisited this light, which has been discontinued for a long while.  Read on to see what makes it special, and if it really stands out!

Redcat Gen8 International Scout II 1/10 Scale Remote Control Crawler

I love playing with RC cars.  I’m not “good at it” (since there are competitions, there is a “good at it”), but I thoroughly enjoy it.  Other members of my family do, too.  After my review of the VKAR [super fast] car, I wanted something slower that I could more readily hand off to others, for crawling, and the like. 

Enter the Redcat Gen8 International Scout.  Of course I love this thing because it’s orange, but it checks off so many of my boxes, too, I am excited to give it a look.

Doogee X70 Cell Phone Review

Every once in a while someone asks to send an item that I’m very interested in, but ultimately have no real idea how to properly review.  Such is the case with this review item.  I’m excited to have it, have enjoyed using it, but generally I don’t know how to test it.  So this is a review/preview with mostly personal impressions of the Doogee X70.

CWF Dragon Driver (in MechForce MechTorch) Review

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!

MechForce MechTorch Flashlight Copper Host Review

Today I have for review a bit of a departure from normal Wednesday flashlight reviews.  This is indeed a flashlight, but it’s just a host!  No guts are in this light (yet).  I’ve even mostly covered this light before in the review of the MechForce MechTorch Turbo, but I thought it might be interesting to see this light as a host, since it’s quite a nice host and available for purchase that way.

BLF GT “Giggles” Flashlight Review

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!

Rofis TC1 Keychain Flashlight Review

I have a fairly long history of liking lights by Rofis.  [Here are some other reviews.]  This is a new little light by Rofis, which uses a built in 10180 cell, has on-board charging, and a very unusual switch.  It looks like it might be something else but ultimately it’s just a capacitive switch.  Read on for more thoughts and info!
