Acebeam E10 Osram (White) Flashlight Review

Today I have in my hands a little light from Acebeam that packs quite a throwy punch!  The E10 is a 26350 cell dedicated thrower, and quite a little thrower it is.  Read on for some testing and thoughts.

Acebeam TK18 AL Flashlight Review

Here’s another Acebeam light, very similar to the TK16 I’ve already reviewed.  This whole set of lights has different emitter options though, and runs on an 18650.  The UI is the same though.  If you liked the TK16 (like I did) then you’ll probably like the TK18 Al (like I… read on to find out.)

Armytek Zippy Keychain Flashlight Review

Today I have a little keychain light from Armytek.  This is the Zippy, and I have the “Extended Kit” – see what that means later.  It’s a tiny thing!  Great for keychains but probably better as a reading headlamp.  Read on for some testing!

Brinyte WT01 Apollo Flashlight Review

My second (and last on-hand) Brinyte flashlight.  This one’s kind of interesting, since it features wireless charging and is a complete package light.  The wireless charging is a neat feature – when power is cut to the charge base, the light comes on automatically!  Read on for more thoughts about that, and testing!

YLP Unicorn 1.0 Flashlight Review

I’ve seen these YLP lights floating around a bunch lately and they seem interesting enough that I wanted my own shot at them.  YLP agreed…

Lumintop HL3A Flashlight Review

Here’s a light that is “another in the series” so in many ways this is a review you can already sort of expect.  On the other hand this is the first of the series of FW type lights to be right angle!  This is the HL3A, and I’ve had this review done for a while and waiting on the official product page.  That’s up, so here’s this review!

Klarus E1 Flashlight Review

Here’s a Klarus light with a dual switch (including one paddle switch) and a 18650 cell with charging.  A pretty neat little 18650 light.  Read on for some testing!

Imalent DM21C Flashlight Review

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!

Lumintop FW1A Pro Flashlight Review

There was a point where I’d have said the FW series of Lumintop lights was played out (or “overdone.”)  I’d have said the FW1A Pro was unnecessary.  …. A 18650 light with Andúril, a Cree XHP50.2 under a reflector – what’s the point?….   You’ll have to read on to see what I think after having it. 😀

If you haven’t checked out Wowtac, you definitely should!

Nitecore TUBE 2.0 Keychain Flashlight Review

Here’s a version 2 light by Nitecore, where I have surprisingly never reviewed the first version.  It’s the TUBE2.0; a slim keychain light, with a bare 5mm emitter and ramping.  Read on for some testing!

Nitecore TIKI LE Keychain Flashlight Review

What can I say about the TIKI LE that I haven’t already said about the RovyVon Aurora series.  We should get this discussion out of the way at the start:  version one of the Aurora, which was released maybe a year and a half ago, and this TIKI/TIKI LE are basically the same.  I asked Nitecore about this specifically, and they declined to respond.  I asked RovyVon about this specifically and they were very clear that this was in no way whatsoever a collaboration in any format.

Lumintop FW3C Andúril Flashlight Review

A Fun Fund Friday review of a light you all probably already own and have moved past…  The Lumintop FW3C – yes another FW review!  My copy of this light has been in my possession for a while now, so shipped with an early version of Andúril, and the review might not be the most relevant any more.

Wowtac A4 V2 Flashlight Review

Wowtac has been bringing the hits lately, and most importantly, at a nice price.  Today I have a version 2 of the A4 – really it’s practically a different light.  This one’s a single cell (26650) and smaller head.  Maybe a scaled down version of the original A4?  Anyway, read on for thoughts and testing!

Lumintop EDC18 Flashlight Review

Lumintop had great success with the FW series, and expanded it greatly.  They also went a different directly – a more standard light but with an e-switch on the side.  That’s the EDC18, and here’s my testing of it!

Wowtac A1S Flashlight Review

Wowtac sent this new A1S for review.  It’s a Cree XP-L HD dual switch light, most notable for it’s low price.  To wit, it’s not breaking new ground, but it’s inexpensive!  Read on for testing!
