Sofirn C01 Single Mode, Yuji High CRI, AAA Flashlight Review

BLF has conspired yet again to design a light that it’s impossible to not want.  This time it’s a tiny AAA light, made by Sofirn, with a Yuji emitter, and very high CRI.  The single mode is very low output, but with very long runtimes, and two temperatures available.    It’s also very inexpensive!

Zanflare F10 Tactical Pen Flashlight Review

Sometimes items show up that I don’t really know much about, and didn’t really plan on reviewing.  This is one of those items.  Fortunately it’s a flashlight too, so I can certainly evaluate that aspect of it….  The rest I’ll mostly leave to photos to describe.

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.

Lumintop HLAAA 2.0 Headlamp Review

After talking to Lumintop (directly), I’ve gotten a light for review from them.  I hope to have more – they make a lot of stuff, including much of the BLF forum lights.  They sent a tiny headlamp.  An AAA light, with a magnet and an orange switch and headband.  Great combo!  Let’s see how it stands up to testing.

Nitefox K3 Flashlight Review

Truth is, I really only like one kind of twisty light.  That happens to be triple A pocket lights.  Nightfox wanted to send another of their lights for review (the UT20) and I asked that they include this little twisty.  So here’s how that one pans out!  (The UT20 will likely be finished later this week.)

Acebeam UC15 Keychain Flashlight Review

Here’s a new little Acebeam keychain light, but with some unusual bonus features: red emitter, uv emitter, and AAA cells, and 10440 support!  And a metal body, which is an even nicer touch.  I’m pleased to have this one, and happy to put it through the paces.
