Astrolux FT03 Luminus Cree XHP50.2 Flashlight Review

I reviewed the FT03 a while back, but that was the SST40 flavor.  BangGood wanted a review of the XHP50.2 version as well, so they sent this one over for review.  The light is fundamentally the same, but with quite a different emitter.  Read on for more!  Or just hit up the table to see some differences.

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!

Astrolux M01 Keychain Flashlight Review

Two 10180 lights this week?  I had this one slated for later, but after the Lumintop light being a bit of a disappointment, I wanted to get something better back in that category.  This is the Astrolux M01, a light that’s been around for a long while.  It’s been updated to “219c” but read on to see a little surprise….

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!

Astrolux MF02 Flashlight Review

Today I have the Astrolux MF02, the first in my quest to have all the MF0x series lights from Astrolux.  This is the [smaller?] thrower option – there’s also the MF01, which is a can “wall of light” light, and the MF04, which is a super thrower.  I generally like Astrolux and (certainly like the S41! thought technically I reviewed the Manker E14 version.)  The MF02 is a nice large thrower with a warm emitter – a good combo.  Let’s see how it works out!

Astrolux K01 CU "Tactical" Flashlight Review

Banggood got in touch about a review item and we agreed on this Astrolux light.  I generally like Astrolux lights, and this copper light is stunning.  Plus it has a great UI!

Astrolux S42 Flashlight Review

With the continuing popularity of the Astrolux S41, an updated was developed: The S42.  This light is essentially iterative, but adds micro-USB charging.  And the Nichia emitter (which I have here) is 219c instead of 219b.  Possibly most importantly, a new user interface! Let’s see how this S42 stacks up!
