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!
On the table today for review is this new Nitecore – the P22R. It’s a tactical light, with quite a rounded out package, even including a hard belt holster. Read on for some testing!
There’s a new titanium keychain light on the market, by a brand you probably haven’t heard of. This is the Rover Camel Ta6132, and it’s a pretty well featured little light, that also happens to be keychain size. Read on for some testing and thoughts!
Imalent, maker of one of my favorite lights (the DX80) recently sent me this new LD10 light, which has one of my favorite emitters (Cree XP-L HI). It’s a neat little light, but let’s test it out, shall we?
Thrunite has a new headlamp on the scene. It’s one they tout as “the brightest headlamp with a single 18350 battery.” This is the Thrunite TH01, and here’s some testing and thoughts about it!
Wowtac has an interesting new 18650 light out. It’s a shorty, with a short reflector and a Luminus SST-40. It boasts on-board charging too, and includes a cell in the package. Read on for some testing!
This is the Wuben TO50R, which started on BLF as “The Flashlight.” It claimed at the time 2500 lumens (bumped to 2800 now), high CRI, on-board charging, a cell included, and can be used as a powerbank, too.
Wowtac makes some solid, inexpensive lights, and they’ve updated their A2 headlamp. Wowtac has released the A2S, which almost doubles the output across all modes, increases throw, but retains the nice form factor of the headlamp. Read on for full testing of the Wowtac A2S!
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!)
Today I have in for review the second of two Coast lights. This is the Coast HP7R, a custom lithium ion or 4xAAA battery light. It’s a zoomie, and most importantly, has a very fetching orange color body. Read on for some testing and thoughts!
A while back Thrunite released the TC15, a 18650 light with built in charging and an indicating switch. Thrunite made a special edition of the TC15 with youtuber The Outsider. Check out that channel! I’ve never heard of it but to be honest it looks pretty cool. Here’s a test of the customized The Outsider edition of the Thrunite TC15!
I have a long history of enjoying Skilhunt lights. In particular the UI but I also loved so many of the iterations of the H03… This is a new 14500 light which boasts on-board charging, includes a cell, and also works with NiMH. Read on for more testing!
Nitecore’s just released a light with what appears to be a built in 18650. It’s fairly low cost, and can be considered a “complete package” light, and has features that can make it a compelling entry point to flashlights. Read on for more!
Today I have in for review a very feature-rich light by Fenix. First off, it’s a 21700 light, which is great. It also has on-board charging (via USB-C), dual switches, and some other cool features. Read on to see how it tests out!
Thrunite has released something I’ve wanted for a long time now. This is a pocket friendly 18350 light, with an e-switch. It’s a good production version counterpoint to many of the “custom” triples out there, most of which have mechanical tail clickies.
Someone new has jumped onto the scene in flashlights! The guys at Custom Knife Factory (CKF, from here on out) – unsurprisingly more known for…
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.
