Imalent just released the RT90 Luminus SBT-90.2 flashlight, and it’s quite a little beast! It sports a “can sized” body, a very throwy emitter, and good performance. Read on for some testing and thoughts!
Olight has capitalized on the popularity of their 2-stage switch from the M2R Warrior Pro by dropping it into a Baton sized light. They have just released the Warrior Mini, a dual switch 18650 light. Read on for some testing and thoughts!
My second (and last on-hand) Brinyte flashlight. This one’s kind of interesting, since it features wireless charging and is a complete package light. The wireless charging is a neat feature – when power is cut to the charge base, the light comes on automatically! Read on for more thoughts about that, and testing!
Wowtac has an interesting new 18650 light out. It’s a shorty, with a short reflector and a Luminus SST-40. It boasts on-board charging too, and includes a cell in the package. Read on for some testing!
Going Gear, the great store in Georgia sent me a light I’ve been itching to get my hands on… The Acebeam K75 – I’m sure you’ve heard of it, or if you’ve looked out your door at night you’ve probably seen me shining mine up into the air. This is a 18650×4 dedicated thrower with a Luminus SBT-90 Gen2, an uncommon emitter. Read on for some thoughts and testing!
Another Convoy! Like I said, I’d love to review all the Convoy lights but that’s quite a task. In any case, here’s the S12, a new 21700 light, with some pleasant eggy SST-20 emitters. Read on!
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!)
A while back Thrunite released the TC15, a 18650 light with built in charging and an indicating switch. Thrunite made a special edition of the TC15 with youtuber The Outsider. Check out that channel! I’ve never heard of it but to be honest it looks pretty cool. Here’s a test of the customized The Outsider edition of the Thrunite TC15!
A while back Sofirn released a tiny little AAA light. No TIR, no reflector…. basically a bare 5mm led (ok there was a tiny cone reflector built in but it did approximately nothing.) It was awesome, and it was the Sofirn C01.
But it lacked. It had only one mode and the beam was useful for a limited set of circumstances. Fortunately Sofirn updated that light – same body but with a TIR, a two mode twisty UI, and importantly, a different emitter. Here’s my testing of that light, the Sofirn C01S.
