Sofirn SP40 Headlamp Review

Today I have in for review a neat headlamp by Sofirn.  This marks their first headlamp design!  It’s an 18650 light with an e-switch on the head end, and on-board charging.  Quite a release as a first headlamp!  Read on for testing.

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.

JETBeam JET-RRT01 Flashlight Review

The new hottest light on the market seems to be the JETBeam RRT01.  It’s a rotary light!!  That’s very unusual, and I’m very pleased that JETBeam revisited this light, which has been discontinued for a long while.  Read on to see what makes it special, and if it really stands out!

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!

How Do I: Install a Dragon Flashlight Driver

Hi There! I’ll be the second to tell you that I’m probably not qualified to write this post.  With that said, I did successfully install…

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.

Nitecore UMS2 and UMS4 Charger Review

My first “real” cell charger was a Nitecore D4.  Nitecore came close to replacing it a while back with the SC4, but they’ve certainly done it with these new two chargers – the USM2 and USM4.  These chargers (most importantly?) fit 21700 cells, among other awesome features.  Read on!

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.

Astrolux S43 Flashlight Review

I’ve reviewed many iterations of this light.  I did the S42 not that long ago.  And one of my very first reviews was of the Manker E14 (which I later sold, and hugely regretted selling).  
This is yet another update on that platform, with 219c emitters, and some other improvements.  Read on for more!

BLF GT Mini Flashlight Review

Anyone reading this site probably knows about the throw King, the BLF GT.  Recently Lumintop made a little brother, the BLF GT Mini.  This was an instant buy for me, and today I have a little review of it!

Oveready Lava P60 with XP-L HI 371d and Optic DIP 219c Drop in Flashlight Review

Here’s one of those random reviews of a light (and items) that I purchase myself, and am  completely free to say what I want.  (That’s a joke; I say what I want about all items I review, no matter how I get them.)  This is a light I’ve eyeballed for ages, but never ponied up the money for.  I had a failed purchase through another site, so I decided to use that money for this light.  It’s the Oveready Lava P60 host.  I paired it with two drop ins; a 371d p60 triple drop in, and an Oveready DIP 8-mode 219c drop in.  I’m excited to have this light, and glad to put forth this review!

Vortex TX100 and TX200 Flashlight Review

Vortex contacted me out of the blue one day, about these review lights.  I wasn’t terribly interested except that 1) their lights have orange accents and 2) the lights have a charging base.  Normally that might not be a big deal but as I understood it, the light would come on if there was a power disconnect to the base.  That’s a pretty big deal.  Read on to see if that’s how things went!

FidgetHQ Aonic 18350 and 18650 Flashlight Review

There’s a new maker in town!  These guys are FidgetHQ, makers of some fine and very popular fidget spinners in brass, stainless, copper, and titanium.  They know how to get things done, and they’ve set their eyes on flashlight.  This is their first offering, a triple emitter, 18650/18350 light, with Bistro firmware.  Here’s my review of this light!

Vapcell 18350 10A Li-Ion Cell Review

For a while now, I’ve been looking into getting a “cell sponsor.”  I review a bunch of lights and I’d love to keep these cells as fresh as possible.  Luckily enough the kind folks over at LiIonWholesale agreed to send over some cells now and again.  These are the first cells they’ve sent – Vapcell 18350.
