My Fun Fund Friday review for today is of a light I couldn’t not own. It’s an orange coated ReyLight called the Gemini. Now, this particular copy that I purchased myself, is from the secondary market, and the UI has been swapped entirely for something custom. So I’m mainly showing my evaluation of the physical light itself and I’ll probably also comment some on the UI, which is ToyKeeper’s Crescendo. Hope that type post interests you, and please read on!
Nitecore has a new light out – their very first 21700 light, in fact! (Well, aside from the TM10K, in which the 21700 was built in.) The New P12 is a tactical, dual switch, with a package that includes Nitecore’s first 21700 cell. Read on for more!
Always on the hunt for the perfect orange flashlight, recently I found this one by Coast. It looks like a fun light, so I reached out to Coast, and they sent this one (and another one) out for review. This is my testing of the Coast Polysteel 600R, a plastic zoomy with batteries included.
Today I have in for review a single 18650 thrower. This one’s unusual though. I have never seen the emitter before (an Osram), and this thing really throws.
Since my early days of talking to Mechforce about flashlights, they mentioned doing this 21700 light. I talked to them a bunch about it but more than anything, I think they took comments (including many of mine specifically) about the MechTorch to heart. They’ve just released this 21700 light, named the Tactical Suppressor – basically a [Hot Rod in the Turbo format] tube 21700 light. Read on for testing!
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.
Today I have a special light. This is another “new to the flashlight market but skilled in other stuff” flashlight. And it’s unusual. Titanium and copper mix, and it’s a reflector light. It’s not a run-of-the-mill triple, as so many customs* are these days. I’m excited to have this one in my hands, and I hope if nothing else, the glut of photos I’ve included here tell you the story of this light!
Today I have for review the second in my collection of Malkoff lights. This is the MDC HA 1CR123 (that’s the full product name). It’s a hard anodized (HA), single CR123 (1CR123) light, with three modes.
Someone new has jumped onto the scene in flashlights! The guys at Custom Knife Factory (CKF, from here on out) – unsurprisingly more known for…
Nitecore keeps dropping lights in the MH series. This time it’s a thrower, of the 2×18650 variety. And it has an interesting UI. Read on to find out more!
Nitecore has another in the Multi-Hybrid GTS series of lights out. This is the “25” – MH25GTS. It’s a medium range thrower, with a bit of a tactical flair. It has on-board charging, and a dual switch interface too!
Another Nitecore enters the mix! This is a tube light with an indicating switch and on-board charging. This one adds an interesting thing to the list though: waterproof charge port! Read on!
Here’s another new Olight! This is a very simple little cr123 light, billed as “tactical.” I’ve been using it for a while; read on for more thoughts!
Nitecore seems to like to play around with UI’s, and here’s another new one. The P26 has an infinitely variable rotary dial on the head. It’s quite interesting. The rest of the light is very similar to some of Nitecore’s other lights. Let’s see how the P26 and its rotary dial stack up.
The iconic design of this Oveready BOSS (Bright Output Small Size) drew me in immediately, and I was finally able to purchase one. Click through for photos and more!
