Convoy S12 Flashlight Review

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!

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!)

Thrunite TC15 “The Outsider” Edition Flashlight Review

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!

Sofirn C01S AAA Flashlight Review (three versions)

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.

Acebeam TK16 (Luminus SST20 Edition) Flashlight Review

Today I have in for review a light that has been highly anticipated, and well regarded, and one I’ve been extremely excited about reviewing.  Originally released in copper as a limited edition, the wider release of aluminum at a lower cost makes this an even more appealing light.

JETBeam RRT2 Tactical Flashlight Review

JETBeam has out a tactical light with a novel switch.  The light overall is a fairly simple one, but the switch is something new.  It’s a sort of a ‘knock’ switch – lean the tail switch in any direction to change the modes.  Is it good?  Well read on and see!
