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!
Along with a light Nitecore sent recently, they sent this little NSH10 – a keychain carabiner with a couple of extra and unusual features. Read on for more!
There’s a new titanium keychain light on the market, by a brand you probably haven’t heard of. This is the Rover Camel Ta6132, and it’s a pretty well featured little light, that also happens to be keychain size. Read on for some testing and thoughts!
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!
What can I say about the TIKI 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.
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!
This is the new Nitecore TIP2, a neat little dual emitter, built-in cell keychain light! Read on for photos and thoughts!
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!
When I saw this one I immediately wanted one. I love cleavers, I love carbon fiber, and the overall design of this one just drew me in. GearBest sent one over – this is the Ganzo F7551-CF!
I, like everyone else, recently reviewed the Ultratac A1. When I agreed to that one, I also asked for this light, the Ultratac K18 Mini Brass. Mike at Ultratac agreed, and here’s my review of this tiny little light!
Everyone probably knows by now I enjoy brass lights. All kinds, all sizes…. I recently acquired the Maratac PCL in Brass. I don’t like these as keychain lights, but they’re fun lights to keep around. They call it the Personal Carry Light, and here are my thoughts!
Olight recently released a 10 Year Anniversary light. I don’t imagine this will become a normal production light, and as such that’s how I’ll evaluate it. It’s an unusual keychain light, with glass front and back, an integrated cell, and on-board charging. It’s the Olight Ion, and here are my thoughts!
Seems that I’ve been on a keychain light kick lately, and here’s another one! Well, in some sense, anyway. This is more of a rectangular light with unusual features…. Also my first MecArmy light in basically forever (the other being the PT16, which I really liked.) Read on for more info and thoughts about this MecArmy SGN7!
I’ve liked the other tiny plastic Nitecores (Tip, Tube, Thumb), but when the TINI was announced, I knew it was the one for me. I’m happy to have this blue TINI, and run it through some testing.
Nitecore seems to love the TIP series of lights. They’ve released a stainless steel version, and sent one out for me to review. I happen to like stainless lights, so I already kind of liked it from the start.
After an ongoing discussion here about the smallest 18650 light available, I talked Kathy at GearBest into sending one of those DQG Tiny 18650 lights. At the same time, she included the DQG Fairy. I’ve reviewed a similar light before – the CooYoo Quantum. These are fun little lights, but let’s put it through some paces to see how it looks.
