Thrunite T10T V2 CutleryLover Flashlight Review

The Thrunite T10T has been a popular light if for nothing else than just as a good conversation piece.  It’s a titanium AA/14500 light with a side e-switch.  Youtube personality cutlerylover worked with Thrunite to make a titanium version of the venerable T10 v2, and thus we have this T10T V2 cutlerylover.  Read on for thoughts and testing!

Maglight MicroMag (kyfishguy) Flashlight Review

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.

Vapcell 14500 Button Top Li-ion Cell Review

Second in my list of Vapcell cells directly from Vapcell is another 14500.  This is presumably the same cell as the flat top, but with a button added.  Performance should be very similar, though!  Read on for graphs and more!

Vapcell 14500 Flat Top Cell Review

I have an awesome number of Vapcell’s in for review, and this is the first of the bunch.  These are unprotected flat top 14500 cells, and here I’m testing two of them (as always).  14500 cells are the same size as AA cells, but don’t always work in those lights, due to the higher Li-Ion voltage.

Wuben E05 Flashlight Review

Wuben is still hitting the scene hard.  I’ve reviewed a Wuben before, the TO10R.  The build quality is great, and I was interested to see if Wuben would keep that trend going.  They sent the E05, which I believe has just been released, and here’s my review and test of it!

XTAR D2 and D4 Charger Review

XTAR makes some great products, and have a massive line of chargers.  Here are two new chargers, the D2 and D4.  Very similar chargers, except one’s a 2-bay, and one’s a 4-bay.  I think they could make great basic fast chargers, but I’m glad to test them to find out!

ISDT C4 NiMH/Li-Ion Charger Review

I had seen this charger randomly around the internet and it looks so fancy.  I like fancy stuff.  It also looks like a very capable charger.  Here’s my review of it.  I’ll say up front (and this might be the best place, too) that this charger is is advanced enough that my typical charger-tester setup.  What I mean by that is the resistance in my usual setup got sensed by the charger and prevented higher current charging.
