Convoy has released a new 26650 light. It’s a medium thrower, but with the addition of built-in charging and a side mechanical switch. Looks pretty solid on paper; read on to see how it tests!
XTAR has a nice new EIGHT BAY charger available, and it’s powered by USB-C. Those are both fairly unusual features. Also the charger is inexpensive, so it’s definitely worth consideration.
Nitecore has released a new headlamp, which incorporates some now-common features in unusual ways. It’s a dual emitter headlamp, with one CW and one WW emitter. Read on for how it works, and some testing!
Armytek has made an official Wizard Pro with Nichia 144A. It’s aptly named the Wizard Pro Nichia Warm, and here is my testing of it!
Lumintop had great success with the FW series, and expanded it greatly. They also went a different directly – a more standard light but with an e-switch on the side. That’s the EDC18, and here’s my testing of it!
Wowtac has an interesting new 18650 light out. It’s a shorty, with a short reflector and a Luminus SST-40. It boasts on-board charging too, and includes a cell in the package. Read on for some testing!
Acebeam has dropped a new headlamp in the form of a three emitter 18650 light with USB-C charging. It’s a nice looking device with three emitter options. Read on for more thoughts and testing!
Wowtac makes some solid, inexpensive lights, and they’ve updated their A2 headlamp. Wowtac has released the A2S, which almost doubles the output across all modes, increases throw, but retains the nice form factor of the headlamp. Read on for full testing of the Wowtac A2S!
An 18650 headlamp! This could be a good category, mainly falling to whether the light is well balanced against it’s head straps. This one is, and works great. It has dual emitters and USB-C charging, which is a nice bonus. It’s the Fenix HM65R – read on for more thoughts and testing!
Today I have in my hands a new light by Fenix. It’s the E30R, and it’s essentially a 18650 version of the E18R, which I liked quite a bit. It’s also quite a bit like the LD30, which I said would be better if it was only an e-switch light, not a dual switch light. The E30R is basically the LD30 as an e-switch only light. (So I already expect to like it!)
Lumintop has been busy expanding on the FW line of lights. First there was the FW3A, which I reviewed and like a lot. Then there were some special metal editions (titanium, copper). Now there’s a longer single emitter version, which I’m reviewing today: The FW1A.
Today I have in for review a single 18650 thrower. This one’s unusual though. I have never seen the emitter before (an Osram), and this thing really throws.
JETBeam’s new PC20 is a dual switch, 21700 tube light with USB-C charging. An interesting weapon light. Read on for testing! Official Specs and Features…

XTAR has a new powerbank on the market. The name is PB2S, and it’s an upgraded PB2. This one has noteworthy improvements – USB-C and support for bigger cells. Read on for a bit of testing!
A while back Thrunite released the TC15, a 18650 light with built in charging and an indicating switch. Thrunite made a special edition of the TC15 with youtuber The Outsider. Check out that channel! I’ve never heard of it but to be honest it looks pretty cool. Here’s a test of the customized The Outsider edition of the Thrunite TC15!
Nitecore’s just released a light with what appears to be a built in 18650. It’s fairly low cost, and can be considered a “complete package” light, and has features that can make it a compelling entry point to flashlights. Read on for more!
I heard about this new Nitecore powerbank/charger a while back, and finally have one in my hands. Well not right now; I’m typing right now. Who can hold a powerbank and type at the same time?
Anyway, I wanted to give this one a test, and the nice people over at Illumn sent this one for me to play around with. Read on for some thoughts!
