Imalent DM21C Flashlight Review

Here’s a light that I’ve sort of already reviewed before…. at first glance.  The DM21C looks like a big version of the LD10, but is not really.  This is an 18650 light, and the cell can be removed.  Everything needed is included, and it has two switches.  Read on for more!

Fenix E30R Flashlight Review

Today I have in my hands a new light by Fenix.  It’s the E30R, and it’s essentially a 18650 version of the E18R, which I liked quite a bit.  It’s also quite a bit like the LD30, which I said would be better if it was only an e-switch light, not a dual switch light.  The E30R is basically the LD30 as an e-switch only light.  (So I already expect to like it!)

Zonestar Z8XM2 Multi-material 3D Printer Kit Review

This post has been a long time coming.  Shamefully long, if I’m honest.  I have had this item for review for so long it’s not even stocked by GearBest any more.

This is my second 3d printer review, and while the item itself is a nice unit, I had a hard time building it, and have not actually printed anything with it yet (stop here if that’s going to be a problem.)  This is my … preview… of the Zonestar Z8XM2.

I write this post mainly because I want users to know about these kits, to see how they look during the build process and so that some might be better able to gauge if this is a build they’re willing to undertake.
