I mentioned the other day that the In Your Pocket (“IYP”) line has expanded recently…. I reviewed the IYP07 already, but today I have the IYP25, which is similar to the rest but is a 2xAA format.
Lumintop has expanded the In Your Pocket (“IYP”) series of lights by two recently. There’s the new IYP25, which is a 2-up AA light, and the IYP07, which is a single AAA light. Today I’m having a look at the IYP07…. a light I’m very excited about!!
This is the new Nitecore TIP2, a neat little dual emitter, built-in cell keychain light! Read on for photos and thoughts!
I have a fairly long history of liking lights by Rofis. [Here are some other reviews.] This is a new little light by Rofis, which uses a built in 10180 cell, has on-board charging, and a very unusual switch. It looks like it might be something else but ultimately it’s just a capacitive switch. Read on for more thoughts and info!
Another year, another Nitecore! This time it’s a new headlamp, with a whole host of emitters, including red and two high CRI secondary emitters. Nitecore has a special sale going on this one, so the review is timely!
Here’s a light I’ve been excited about since I reviewed a light for RovyVon initially. I since reviewed a couple more from the Aurora series (and like them!). I was clued in during the prototype phase, but have only just gotten the review sample. So here’s my review of the RovyVon triple! The E300S!
I was fortunate to continue the discourse with RovyVon, and they sent two more of these tiny Aurora keychain lights. This time it’s the A2 and A3. I’m reviewing them together because they really only differ in body material. But they’re different from the A5 I already reviewed in that they don’t have secondary emitters. Read on to see how they act!
Sometimes items show up that I don’t really know much about, and didn’t really plan on reviewing. This is one of those items. Fortunately it’s a flashlight too, so I can certainly evaluate that aspect of it…. The rest I’ll mostly leave to photos to describe.
The RovyVon lights have been popping up over and over, so I reached out to RovyVon on amazon about some review units. I’d hoped to get a sampling of various iterations, but in the end RovyVon agreed to send the GITD version, the A5.
Vortex contacted me out of the blue one day, about these review lights. I wasn’t terribly interested except that 1) their lights have orange accents and 2) the lights have a charging base. Normally that might not be a big deal but as I understood it, the light would come on if there was a power disconnect to the base. That’s a pretty big deal. Read on to see if that’s how things went!
Another light from Fasttech! This time it’s a new brand for me; Wuben. Wuben says on their website that they’ve been in the flashlight market for over 30 years. They make quite a few lights I hope to eventually get to test, but for now it’s the TO10R, a 16340 triple with on-board charging!
After talking to Lumintop (directly), I’ve gotten a light for review from them. I hope to have more – they make a lot of stuff, including much of the BLF forum lights. They sent a tiny headlamp. An AAA light, with a magnet and an orange switch and headband. Great combo! Let’s see how it stands up to testing.
After my recent Maratac PCL Brass review, I realized CountyComm had a bunch more items that would be good for review. I reached out to them, and this is the first of a few things they sent. This is the Maratac AA Titanium flashlight, 2018 rev 2.
Olight’s released another headlamp, in the same vein as the HS2, which I’ve previously reviewed here. I liked the HS2 (still have it and use it often), but it’s a very runner-specific headlamp. The H16 Wave is an interesting development, because it’s adds a “Wave,” ‘hands free’ feature. Let’s see how it all works for this light!
Olight recently released a 10 Year Anniversary light. I don’t imagine this will become a normal production light, and as such that’s how I’ll evaluate it. It’s an unusual keychain light, with glass front and back, an integrated cell, and on-board charging. It’s the Olight Ion, and here are my thoughts!
I’ve been a huge fan of the Olight S Mini (the brass S Mini is one of my most used lights!), and this S1 Mini is in some ways, it’s successor. Yes, it’s from the S1 lineage, but it’s smaller than the S Mini; which is more important? And now it’s available in High CRI? I was very interested. Keep reading to see how I like it now!
Sofirn sent out a bunch of messages recently asking for reviewers. I was one of the recipients, and I agreed to review this C8 variant, the C8F. It’s a C8, yes, but a triple! I was interested. I like a triple. 🙂
