RovyVon A3x Flashlight Review

RovyVon has released an update to their very popular Aurora A2/A3 series of lights.  RovyVon sent over an updated A3 light – the A3x.  This is as much a new light as it is an update, but addresses issues raised from the initial release.  Have a look, and see if the improvements are compelling!

RovyVon A23 Flashlight Review

RovyVon has released a new, bigger light.  It’s sort of a keychain light; bigger than their popular keychain series of lights, anyway.

This one’s still an Aurora.  The aluminum you’ll see here is the A23, but there are others.

Lumintop EDC Pico Keychain Flashlight Review

Lumintop has a new little keychain flashlight available.  It’s the format used by so many other lights but different in a couple of ways – body colors, and the Osram Pusra1 emitter!  Read on for more info!

Rofis TC1 Keychain Flashlight Review

I have a fairly long history of liking lights by Rofis.  [Here are some other reviews.]  This is a new little light by Rofis, which uses a built in 10180 cell, has on-board charging, and a very unusual switch.  It looks like it might be something else but ultimately it’s just a capacitive switch.  Read on for more thoughts and info!

RovyVon A8 Y Flashlight Review

There was a group buy organized on reddit of this special run of the Aurora series… It was this Nichia version, with a modified UI. I got my copy recently and I’ve been playing with and testing it. It’s similar enough to the older ones that this review will be brief[er] on text, but with description of differences.

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!

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!

RovyVon E300S Angel Eyes Flashlight Review

Here’s a light I’ve been excited about since I reviewed a light for RovyVon initially.  I since reviewed a couple more from the Aurora series (and like them!).  I was clued in during the prototype phase, but have only just gotten the review sample.  So here’s my review of the RovyVon triple!  The E300S!

Zanflare SB-6039 Solar Tent Light Review

While this is a light, it’s not really a typical flashlight.  And to be honest I’ve had it on a shelf to review for a while and I’m going to put it on the “Tuesday” (aka “not a flashlight”) review day.  So here are my thoughts on this little solar powered hanging light, the Zanflare SB-6039.

Nitecore TM10K Flashlight Review

Here’s a light I was so excited to get, and one I’m very pleased to have.  It’s quite special – Nitecore’s highest output light at a claimed 10,000 lumens.  I’ve been messing around with it for a while, and here are my tests and thoughts!

Thrunite TN42C V2 Flashlight Review

Here’s a review of another Thrunite. In truth, and as I just reviewed the TN42, this review will be much the same as that review, but with more consideration for the battery pack (which is the main/only difference). I liked the regular TN42, so let’s see how the TN42c v2 pans out!

RovyVon A2 IP Blue and A3 Gun Gray Flashlight Review

I was fortunate to continue the discourse with RovyVon, and they sent two more of these tiny Aurora keychain lights.  This time it’s the A2 and A3.  I’m reviewing them together because they really only differ in body material.  But they’re different from the A5 I already reviewed in that they don’t have secondary emitters.  Read on to see how they act!

Nitecore BR35 Bicycle Light Review

Today I’m having a look at the Nitecore BR35, a bicycle flashlight.  It’s meant for handlebar mount, and had all the parts required.  It has a built in battery, and on-board charging!  There’s a lot going on in this light, so read on!

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.

Nitecore TINI Cu Flashlight Review

Nitecore has recently released a couple of special edition small lights, the full copper TIP and TINI.  While I’ve reviewed the TINI before, I thought a full copper version might warrant an updated review!

Nitecore Concept 2 Flashlight Review

Nitecore has released a second in their “Concept” series.  This is the Concept 2.  A four cell, four emitter with on-board charging and an indicating switch.  It looks pretty spectacular on paper, especially when it’s noted that this tiny light is Nitecore’s highest output light to date!  Let’s see how it breaks down.

Olight I1R EOS Flashlight Review

Olight has a new tiny keychain light out.  In the meantime of me asking for the X9R, Olight wanted to send out the I1R and I3T.  I’ve already reviewed the I3T, so here’s the I1R!

Nitecore LA30 Lantern Review

Nitecore has a new lantern out, with some unusual features.  This is the LA30, which has an internal pouch cell (lipo), and can also run off 2 AA sized cells, too.  It’s a nice combo, and has red and white emitters, too!

Olight H16 Wave Headlamp Review

Olight’s released another headlamp, in the same vein as the HS2, which I’ve previously reviewed here.  I liked the HS2 (still have it and use it often), but it’s a very runner-specific headlamp.  The H16 Wave is an interesting development, because it’s adds a “Wave,” ‘hands free’ feature.  Let’s see how it all works for this light!
