Nanfu Tenavolt Lithium Ion AA Cell Review

The users over at https://www.reddit.com/r/AAMasterRace/ recently got some traffic from the Nanfu guys.  Since I do some cell testing, I agreed to test these Nanfu Tenavolts.  They’re AA sized lithium ion cells, which are bucked down to the more common 1.5V for AA NiMH or alkaline cells.  The claims these make aren’t trivial, so I was interested to test them.

Convoy T2 Flashlight Review

Convoy has added a small AA light to their lineup.  It’s a small version of the Convoy S2+, and called the T2.  It’s literally a shrunken S2+, which is fantastic, but lacks Li-ion support.  Read on for more!

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.

Mooshimeter – A Phone-Screen, Dual channel, logging digital multimeter.

I was on the search for a logging multimeter for ages.  A friend mentioned he’d gotten this “Mooshimeter” – a meter I’d never heard of.  I asked around about it, got in touch with James, and he sent over a refurbished unit for me to test and play with.  Now, I’m not electrical engineer – I discussed that with him and I’ll say it up front to you.  This isn’t going to be that kind of test.  Consider it an overview, a how-it-works.  And if nothing else, a bunch of photos of the unit!
