Acebeam T36 Flashlight Review

Today I have in for review a light by Acebeam.  This is a 21700 tube light, with on-board charging via USB-C (yay!), a dual switch interface, and a CREE XHP-35 HI emitter.  It’s an interesting complete package light, so read on for more info!

Amutorch TC500 (New) Luminus SST40 Flashlight Review

Neal sent another light – this time an Amutorch thrower.  It’s a nice little light.  Nice to see 21700 lights, particularly in throwers like this.  Read on for more!

RovyVon E300S (Nichia!) Flashlight Review

I reviewed a few lights for RovyVon, and one of those was the E300S.  That light has Cree XP-G3, one of my least favorite current emitters, and after the input from my review (and let’s be humble, probably other sources), RovyVon released a Nichia option!  This review is largely the same as that original, with the main difference being the emitters.

Eagtac SX30C2 Flashlight Review

Here’s my second Eagtac light, the SX30C2.  This is a throwier version of the Eactac I just reviewed, the TX30C2.  The specs and such are otherwise pretty much the same!  As a result, much of the review will be carry over, too.

Eagtac TX30C2 Flashlight Review

I have tried for ages to get lights by EagTac for review.  Their lights are consistently solid offerings, and one of the few brands which offer Nichia emitters in their main lineup.  I have a couple of these EagTac lights in for review; here’s the first one!  This is the TX30C2, an 18650 light with medium range, and dual switch interface.

Nitecore NU32 Headlamp Review

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!

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!

XTAR D36 5800 Flashlight Review

XTAR has a new dive light out.  It’s an interesting light, with dual emitters that fits both flood and spotlight cases, and has a ridiculous output level.  There’s removable battery pack, OLED display, two switches – just a lot going on!  Read on to see how the light works!
