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.

Imren 18350 LiIon Cell Review

I’ve tested some 18350 cells, but I asked for this cell specifically because it’s an inexpensive option, and has a button top, too.  Both of…

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.

Vapcell 18350 LiIon Cell Review

Early into my interest in cell reviews I was sent a set of Vapcell 18350 liion cells.  My ways and means are different now, and LiIonwholesale agreed to send me a fresh set for testing.  So here’s another test of these well-regarded 18350 cells, this time with actual discharge (etc) data!  Who knows, in another year maybe my testing will have evolved so much further that these cells deserve another look!

FocusWorks Eryx F1 Flashlight Review

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!

SolarForce L2M and L2C P60 Host Review, and Solarforce Drop-In Review

A long time ago, in a land far far away, emitters were expensive, and modding was hard and unusual.  And sites with modding supplies were rare!

Back then, there were P60 light.  Buy a host, buy one or many drop-ins, and boom, tons of options!  P60 lights were an easy way to try different emitters or modes or whatever, without actual modification.

They still are!  Though modding is possibly more common now, and certainly easier (due to tons of helpful videos etc), P60 is still around and available.  So that’s what I’m reviewing today!  Some of the most common P60 hosts, and one of their available drop-ins.
