I recently got this Hobbymade D6 Duo Pro rc/lipo charger in for testing. It was an item I asked for specifically, and specifically because I wanted to see something in use that I hadn’t seen anyone use: external discharge. Hobbymate was kind enough to send this one and I’ve had it for way too long, but finally got my demonstration done.
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!
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!
Today I have in for review the new Nitecore LR50 lantern. It’s an interesting lantern, offering more than just…. lanterning. It has charging, and can serve as a powerbank, too!
Another Sofirn for review! This time it’s a small AA/14500 version, with a mechanical tail switch. Thanks to Sofirn for sending this light for review.
I’ve been asking for this little charger from Nitecore for quite a while, and they finally obliged. I use a Canon camera, and this little charger is perfect for me!
I, like everyone else, recently reviewed the Ultratac A1. When I agreed to that one, I also asked for this light, the Ultratac K18 Mini Brass. Mike at Ultratac agreed, and here’s my review of this tiny little light!
I reached out to Xtar regarding a couple of their chargers. Particularly the PB2, their newest charger/powerbank. Looks awesome on paper! They also sent over a Dragon, which I’ll have some thoughts on later. For now, the PB2.
Nitecore has a charger campaign going, and asked that I share this video on my site. I have used Nitecore charges for as long as I’ve been flashlighting, and I really like them indeed!
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.
I was on a long driving trip a while back and fighting for access to USB ports. All while wanting to be able to charge 18650 cells (because I was using those cells in my Nitecore F2 for charging devices). Now Nitecore comes out with the perfect product? I’m pleased to have one from Nitecore Store for review! Read on, and hope you enjoy!
The SkyRC MC3000 is a charger I’ve been asking GearBest to send for a long while. They finally agreed, and here’s my review! This charger is ridiculously capable. I’ll say up front that I will not be testing every capability of this charger. I might only just scratch the surface! But I will try to give you an idea about the charger, and if it lives up to the claims that will be useful for a flashlight enthusiast.
It’s been a while since I reviewed anything for Xtar. I like Xtar items. They’re typically solid workhorses – not always the most flashy items. Xtar sent over this VC2 Plus Master charger, and I’ve been testing it for a while. Read on!
Here’s the second charger from Folomov and Illumn.com that I’ll be reviewing. This time it’s a full four-bay charger, with claimed 3A charging capability.
I have wanted to do a “How I…” Series for a while now. Not that I have more knowledge than anyone, or more info than you can find on the web. But I can certainly tell you how I do something.
So without more chatter, here’s how I test a charger.
There’s a new charger brand on the markets, being carried by the fine gentlemen at Illumn.com. So far I believe there are three models, the A1, A2, and A4. The A1 is what we’ll be seeing here (I have the A4 also, look for the review soon).
The A1 is a very interesting little cable/magnet charger, which doubles as a powerbank. Read on for more!
I’m gladly still receiving items for review from Nitecore. This time it’s a charger, the brand spankin’ new Nitecore i8 8 bay charger. My main squeeze is a Nitecore d4, which I’ve been using for ages now. I like that one a lot, and I’m interested to see how this i8 fares, too.
