Occasionally I get a wild hair to buy a random product like this one. I already know I like FocusWorks from the Eryx review. And I like small spinners too, particularly ones with these ball bearings. So during a sale I purchased this Axis Micro Mini in stonewashed bronze, and thought I’d throw out some photos and thoughts on it.
I once saw MecArmy as a flashlight company. The more I see their Facebook and Instagram posts, the more I realize they’re actually a gadget company. That’s certainly the case with the item I have in my hand today – the MecArmy GP1 fidget spinner. Appointed with anodized titanium, and very fidgety…. Read on for some thoughts and pics!
My Fun Fund Friday review for today is of a light I couldn’t not own. It’s an orange coated ReyLight called the Gemini. Now, this particular copy that I purchased myself, is from the secondary market, and the UI has been swapped entirely for something custom. So I’m mainly showing my evaluation of the physical light itself and I’ll probably also comment some on the UI, which is ToyKeeper’s Crescendo. Hope that type post interests you, and please read on!
Going Gear, the great store in Georgia sent me a light I’ve been itching to get my hands on… The Acebeam K75 – I’m sure you’ve heard of it, or if you’ve looked out your door at night you’ve probably seen me shining mine up into the air. This is a 18650×4 dedicated thrower with a Luminus SBT-90 Gen2, an uncommon emitter. Read on for some thoughts and testing!
I have one last item from BilletSpin for review – kinda disappointed, I have really enjoyed these items! This is an out-of-production top called the Firefly. It’s smallish, and great for travel use.
I heard about this new Nitecore powerbank/charger a while back, and finally have one in my hands. Well not right now; I’m typing right now. Who can hold a powerbank and type at the same time?
Anyway, I wanted to give this one a test, and the nice people over at Illumn sent this one for me to play around with. Read on for some thoughts!
My next item from Billetspin is not a top! It’s a whistle. This is a newish market for Billetspin, but they have a bunch of products in the category. They’re very pretty pieces, but also functional whistles! Read on for more.
BilletSpin has released a new top. It’s named “The Vanguard” and they were kind enough to send one my way. It’s gorgeous, too – a 3-color Mokume / Flamed Titanium top, with a Ruby sphere atop the stem. Truly a stunning top.
Along with the Soul Pen BilletSpin sent a while back, they graciously sent this Xeno bronze and stainless top. I have had tops before – the Lambda from Dark Sucks, for example, so I’m glad to have a look at this one!
Illumn.com recently sent me a review item and I convinced Calvin to send over one of these glow in the dark Storacells. So, enjoy a few shots of these cool cell holders!
I’ve had a couple of pens in for review lately, and that’s been great! I write a fair bit for work, so it’s been nice to have something other than my custom Bic Clic Stic pen. This is the Astrolux TP01, a titanium body light which fits the Parker style refill. Read on for more!
Today I have in my hands a … knife… from Nitecore. It’s an unusual device, so calling it a knife might be a bit of a misnomer, because it’s most usual use case will likely not be … knifing. What it essentially is, is a titanium scalpel handle. Read on for more photos and a few thoughts!
Today I have in for review the new Nitecore LR50 lantern. It’s an interesting lantern, offering more than just…. lanterning. It has charging, and can serve as a powerbank, too!
I don’t review pens often, but when I do they’re great. Spoiler is this one’s great too. Read on for more details on this BilletSpin Stainless and Brass Soul pen!
Two 10180 lights this week? I had this one slated for later, but after the Lumintop light being a bit of a disappointment, I wanted to get something better back in that category. This is the Astrolux M01, a light that’s been around for a long while. It’s been updated to “219c” but read on to see a little surprise….
Lumintop has a new little keychain flashlight available. It’s the format used by so many other lights but different in a couple of ways – body colors, and the Osram Pusra1 emitter! Read on for more info!
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.
