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.

Fenix CL26R Lantern Review

Today I have for review something we don’t see too much of.  A lantern!  This one’s made by Fenix, is powered by a single 18650, and has two types of use – lantern and “down” light, too!  Read on to see how it tests.

Olight Warrior X Flashlight Review

Olight has released a new tactical flashlight, and it sports an interesting feature.  It’s the (one of the?) first flashlights with a vibration alert.  Otherwise it’s a very dedicated tactical, throwy light.  Read on to see how it tests!

Emisar D4s Flashlight Review

Preface I’ve had a bunch of Emisar lights. I like them, in general. When this D4S came out and had awesome orange secondary emitters, I…

Fireflies PL47 Flashlight Review

The latest review item I have from Neal’s Gadgets is another Fireflies light.  This is the PL47, a right angle 21700 light.  It’s a “headlamp” in the sense that it ships with a headband, but most uses will likely not include it being an actual headlamp.  I’m excited to have and test it; read on for more!

Olight S1R II Baton and Olight S2R Baton II Flashlight Review

Olight has a couple of new, similar lights out. Updates of some older models, they are. These are the S1RII Baton, and the S2R Baton II. Yes, those are the official names. No, the 18650 version isn’t “S2RII Baton” – it’s actually “S2R Baton II,” while the 16340 version is the “S1RII Baton.”

Throughout this review, I’ve tried to always discuss the S1RII Baton first, followed by the S2R Baton II. The photos are generally laid out that way. The lights are similar enough that if I don’t specify, you may assume that the feature being discussed is shared by the two lights.

Sofirn Q8 Flashlight Review

I already reviewed this light once.  That time, it was the BLF Q8.  I liked that light then.  I saw that Sofirn had a version of that light, and it was rumored that they manufactured the original BLF Q8, so I wanted to see if this version was “close enough.”  Read on to find out!

RovyVon Aurora A5 Keychain Flashlight Review

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.
