Sofirn C01 Single Mode, Yuji High CRI, AAA Flashlight Review

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!

XTAR EU4 USB Hub Review

I was in gross need of a USB port with QC3 capabilities for a charger or two I was testing.  I got super lucky that XTAR has this product just out, and they dropped one in the mail to me.  This power brick has three USB ports, one of which has QC3 capabilities.  The other two have output up to 2.4A, and there’s also a USB-C port!  Read on for my testing and thoughts!

Zonestar Z8XM2 Multi-material 3D Printer Kit Review

This post has been a long time coming.  Shamefully long, if I’m honest.  I have had this item for review for so long it’s not even stocked by GearBest any more.

This is my second 3d printer review, and while the item itself is a nice unit, I had a hard time building it, and have not actually printed anything with it yet (stop here if that’s going to be a problem.)  This is my … preview… of the Zonestar Z8XM2.

I write this post mainly because I want users to know about these kits, to see how they look during the build process and so that some might be better able to gauge if this is a build they’re willing to undertake.

Armytek Handy C1 Pro Charger Review

I finally got a message in to someone at Armytek, and they sent this Handy C1 Pro as a first review item.  This is a single-bay, Li-Ion/NiMH (!!) charger, with a USB-out function!  Read on for my first review of 2019, on an item I’ve had for almost 3 months!

KillzoneFlashlights.com Hunting Light Flashlight Review

Occasionally I get a light that I ask for.  Sometimes I don’t…  Sometimes I ask for something just because it looks fun and awesome and like it also might get you shot by police, and I get sent this light for review.  This is a hunting light.  I’m no hunter.  It’s still neat and fun, and I can evaluate.  I hope the info here will be useful for hunters.  This light has so many options.  I tapped out just a little with regards to a leave-no-screw-unturned rigorous evaluation, but I hope there’s a reasonable amount of info here.

Also forgive me for a little bit of holiday cheer – I’ve saved this Red and Green light for my Christmas Light review!!  Merry Christmas!

Nitecore is expanding their “keychain” light selection.  This time it’s with a bigger option, with 1000 lumen output, while retaining the dual switch interface.

Sinner 18350 Ready-Made Titanium Flashlight Review

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.

RovyVon E300S Angel Eyes Flashlight Review

Here’s a light I’ve been excited about since I reviewed a light for RovyVon initially.  I since reviewed a couple more from the Aurora series (and like them!).  I was clued in during the prototype phase, but have only just gotten the review sample.  So here’s my review of the RovyVon triple!  The E300S!

Rofis MR30 Flashlight Review

I tend to like Rofis lights.  They’re well made, very functional, and more often than not, just neat little lights.  So I was excited when this MR30 showed up in the mail – the MR70 is still my go-to powerbank travel light.  The MR30 is smaller with the same capacity, and loses the side light (which I never really used anyway).  I’m excited to put it to the test!
