CWF Dragon Driver (in MechForce MechTorch) Review

For the longest time I’ve wanted to try the Dragon driver.  Out of all the lights I’ve ever had, I’ve never managed to snag one that came with a Dragon driver.  But I did recently get the MechForce MechTorch host, so I went and purchased a Dragon driver with the intention of installing it myself, into this host.  You can see from yesterday’s post that this was successful, so now I have a flashlight with a Dragon driver, for testing!  Read on for more!

MechForce MechTorch Flashlight Copper Host Review

Today I have for review a bit of a departure from normal Wednesday flashlight reviews.  This is indeed a flashlight, but it’s just a host!  No guts are in this light (yet).  I’ve even mostly covered this light before in the review of the MechForce MechTorch Turbo, but I thought it might be interesting to see this light as a host, since it’s quite a nice host and available for purchase that way.

FocusWorks Eryx F1 Flashlight Review

Today I have a special light.  This is another “new to the flashlight market but skilled in other stuff” flashlight.  And it’s unusual.  Titanium and copper mix, and it’s a reflector light.  It’s not a run-of-the-mill triple, as so many customs* are these days.  I’m excited to have this one in my hands, and I hope if nothing else, the glut of photos I’ve included here tell you the story of this light!

Nitecore has recently released a couple of special edition small lights, the full copper TIP and TINI.  While I’ve reviewed the TINI before, I thought a full copper version might warrant an updated review!

Astrolux K01 CU "Tactical" Flashlight Review

Lumintop Tool AAA, Aluminum, Copper, Brass, and Titanium Combo Review

In truth I’m probably the last flashlight person on Earth without a Lumintop Tool AAA.  But there are some variations I’ve gained interest in, and they’re also a an inexpensive way to get Nichia 219b emitters.  GearBest was kind enough to send three out for review.  After getting those three I liked them enough to purchase the Brass version for myself!
