Lumintop FW21 Pro Flashlight Review

By this point you probably thought I’d reviewed all the FW series light.  You’d be wrong.  Today I have the FW21 Pro, and there are others in the series I haven’t even ever seen!  The FW21 Pro is a “triple” Cree XHP50.2 emitter light, with a bigger head for better heat-sinking.  Read on for more testing!

Lumintop FW3E Flashlight Review

I have in my hands today something that is pretty interesting!  It’s the Lumintop FW3E, which is an answer to the “inner sleeve issue” that some of the FW series lights have had.  It has no inner sleeve!  Read on for photos and testing.

AlumaFX Clamshell in Copper and Aluminum Fidget Spinner Review

A spinner review!  And a spinner on a Fun Fund Friday?  Yep.  Maybe I’m back into spinners, I’m not sure yet.  Probably not but you can read on to see why. 😀

Deadwood Huckleberry Topo Flashlight Review

It’s not often that a single emitter (with reflector) light comes available in what we’ll generically call the “custom” market, but when Grant Spitz of Deadwood Custom Works announced the aluminum version of his popular Huckleberry he threw out the option of a 219b single.  I jumped on that.  This is a “full review” but at the same time there are some caveats, due to H17f and programming and… I’ll get into that later.  Read on!

MechForce Tactical Suppressor Turbo Flashlight Review

Since my early days of talking to Mechforce about flashlights, they mentioned doing this 21700 light.  I talked to them a bunch about it but more than anything, I think they took comments (including many of mine specifically) about the MechTorch to heart.  They’ve just released this 21700 light, named the Tactical Suppressor – basically a [Hot Rod in the Turbo format] tube 21700 light.  Read on for testing!

Astrolux TP01 Pen Review

I’ve had a couple of pens in for review lately, and that’s been great!  I write a fair bit for work, so it’s been nice to have something other than my custom Bic Clic Stic pen.  This is the Astrolux TP01, a titanium body light which fits the Parker style refill.  Read on for more!

Convoy M3 Flashlight Review

BangGood sent a light from probably the most popular, inexpensive enthusiast brands: Convoy.  This is the Convoy M3, a “wall of light” 26650 cell light, and one that’s been discussed excitedly recently.  Here’s my testing and thoughts; hope you enjoy!

Acebeam TK16 (Luminus SST20 Edition) Flashlight Review

Today I have in for review a light that has been highly anticipated, and well regarded, and one I’ve been extremely excited about reviewing.  Originally released in copper as a limited edition, the wider release of aluminum at a lower cost makes this an even more appealing light.

RovyVon A2 IP Blue and A3 Gun Gray Flashlight Review

I was fortunate to continue the discourse with RovyVon, and they sent two more of these tiny Aurora keychain lights.  This time it’s the A2 and A3.  I’m reviewing them together because they really only differ in body material.  But they’re different from the A5 I already reviewed in that they don’t have secondary emitters.  Read on to see how they act!
