I reviewed a few lights for RovyVon, and one of those was the E300S. That light has Cree XP-G3, one of my least favorite current emitters, and after the input from my review (and let’s be humble, probably other sources), RovyVon released a Nichia option! This review is largely the same as that original, with the main difference being the emitters.
Today I have a special light. This is another “new to the flashlight market but skilled in other stuff” flashlight. And it’s unusual. Titanium and copper mix, and it’s a reflector light. It’s not a run-of-the-mill triple, as so many customs* are these days. I’m excited to have this one in my hands, and I hope if nothing else, the glut of photos I’ve included here tell you the story of this light!
Today I have for review the second in my collection of Malkoff lights. This is the MDC HA 1CR123 (that’s the full product name). It’s a hard anodized (HA), single CR123 (1CR123) light, with three modes.
Olight has released a new tactical flashlight, and it sports an interesting feature. It’s the (one of the?) first flashlights with a vibration alert. Otherwise it’s a very dedicated tactical, throwy light. Read on to see how it tests!
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!
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!
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.
