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.

Fenix E30R Flashlight Review

Today I have in my hands a new light by Fenix.  It’s the E30R, and it’s essentially a 18650 version of the E18R, which I liked quite a bit.  It’s also quite a bit like the LD30, which I said would be better if it was only an e-switch light, not a dual switch light.  The E30R is basically the LD30 as an e-switch only light.  (So I already expect to like it!)
