Nitecore NM01 Flashlight Review

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!

BLF A6 (by Astrolux) Flashlight Review

BLF A6 review, you say?  Yep, BLF A6 review.  Sure, it’s been a while since this light came out, and sure, other very compelling options exist.  But I never reviewed it, and it’s good to have more datapoints out there about it!  Read on to see how it stacks up.

Amutorch VG10 Medium Head Flashlight Review

Today I have another Amutorch straight from Neal.  It’s a 21700 cell light, set up as a thrower, but with basically the same body as some other Amutorch lights.  It’s a very simple light, with a low price to match.

Malkoff MDC 16650 Flashlight Review

I’ve heard a lot about Malkoff lights – they’re highly regarded for being extremely robust, well built lights.  I reached out to Malkoff, and they agreed to send a couple of lights!  This is the first, a 16650 XP-L HD NW light.

SolarForce L2M and L2C P60 Host Review, and Solarforce Drop-In Review

A long time ago, in a land far far away, emitters were expensive, and modding was hard and unusual.  And sites with modding supplies were rare!

Back then, there were P60 light.  Buy a host, buy one or many drop-ins, and boom, tons of options!  P60 lights were an easy way to try different emitters or modes or whatever, without actual modification.

They still are!  Though modding is possibly more common now, and certainly easier (due to tons of helpful videos etc), P60 is still around and available.  So that’s what I’m reviewing today!  Some of the most common P60 hosts, and one of their available drop-ins.

Sofirn C8F 21700 Flashlight Review

Today I have in for review a light I’ve been looking forward to (and pestering Sofirn for) for a long while now: The C8F 21700.  I reviewed the original C8F (and that review didn’t go so well).  Sofirn responsively made some changes to the light, and now it uses a 21700 cell instead of a 18650, and I think generally has some build quality improvements.  Read on to see if that pans out!

Wuben E05 Flashlight Review

Wuben is still hitting the scene hard.  I’ve reviewed a Wuben before, the TO10R.  The build quality is great, and I was interested to see if Wuben would keep that trend going.  They sent the E05, which I believe has just been released, and here’s my review and test of it!

Ultratac A1 Flashlight Review

Ultratac got in touch with me recently to review a light of theirs.  They have a few brass offerings and I was interested, so I agreed to review the A1 if they also sent a brass light.  The brass light (K18 Mini) will be reviewed soon, but here’s the A1 for now.

Nitecore LR12 Flashlight Review

Nitecore has released a new lantern “lipstick style” light.  This time it’s in the 18650 format.  It was the LA10 before, in AA format.  I never had that light so I went in with no preconceived notions.  This is essentially billed as a dual purpose light; EDC and Lantern.

Nitecore MT21C Flashlight Review

Here’s another in Nitecore’s new run of lights.  This one has an interesting feature – an angle(able) head.  Otherwise, it’s a nice iteration of the MT – Multi Task – series of Nitecore lights.

Manker E03H Headlamp Review

It’s been a long time since I reviewed a Manker light, though I have liked most of the Manker’s I’ve had.  The E14 is still a personal favorite (and in my opinion, a watershed light).  Good friends have described the E03H as a must have, so I … had to have one!  Fortunately Fasttech came through for me.  So here’s the review of the E03H!

Acebeam UC15 Keychain Flashlight Review

Here’s a new little Acebeam keychain light, but with some unusual bonus features: red emitter, uv emitter, and AAA cells, and 10440 support!  And a metal body, which is an even nicer touch.  I’m pleased to have this one, and happy to put it through the paces.
