Another RovyVon! This time it’s the brass version, and one I bought for myself. That’s a testament to the other two from this series I’ve reviewed – the A23 and A28 – I liked them enough to put my own money into a version. The A29, brass of course.
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!
Acebeam has dropped a new headlamp in the form of a three emitter 18650 light with USB-C charging. It’s a nice looking device with three emitter options. Read on for more thoughts and testing!
I mentioned the other day that the In Your Pocket (“IYP”) line has expanded recently…. I reviewed the IYP07 already, but today I have the IYP25, which is similar to the rest but is a 2xAA format.
For the longest time I’ve wanted to try the Dragon driver. Out of all the lights I’ve ever had, I’ve never managed to snag one that came with a Dragon driver. But I did recently get the MechForce MechTorch host, so I went and purchased a Dragon driver with the intention of installing it myself, into this host. You can see from yesterday’s post that this was successful, so now I have a flashlight with a Dragon driver, for testing! Read on for more!
Hi There! I’ll be the second to tell you that I’m probably not qualified to write this post. With that said, I did successfully install…
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.
I reviewed a few lights for RovyVon, and one of those was the E300S. That light has Cree XP-G3, one of my least favorite current emitters, and after the input from my review (and let’s be humble, probably other sources), RovyVon released a Nichia option! This review is largely the same as that original, with the main difference being the emitters.
Banggood asked if there was anything I’d like to review. I have been interested to see what Rey has done with the newer Pineapples, and so they sent the Pineapple Update. I reviewed the original Pineapple. I liked the original Pineapple! Let’s see how this one’s improved!
Today I have a special light. This is another “new to the flashlight market but skilled in other stuff” flashlight. And it’s unusual. Titanium and copper mix, and it’s a reflector light. It’s not a run-of-the-mill triple, as so many customs* are these days. I’m excited to have this one in my hands, and I hope if nothing else, the glut of photos I’ve included here tell you the story of this light!
Here’s my second Eagtac light, the SX30C2. This is a throwier version of the Eactac I just reviewed, the TX30C2. The specs and such are otherwise pretty much the same! As a result, much of the review will be carry over, too.
I have tried for ages to get lights by EagTac for review. Their lights are consistently solid offerings, and one of the few brands which offer Nichia emitters in their main lineup. I have a couple of these EagTac lights in for review; here’s the first one! This is the TX30C2, an 18650 light with medium range, and dual switch interface.
There’s a brand new flashlight maker on the scene. Mechforce has been making all sorts of things: firearm accessories and parts, spinners, and tools, and has this new entry to the flashlight world. It’s the Mechtorch EDC Flashlight. I’m super excited to have one of these and pleased to submit this review. Read on for photos and thoughts!
I’ve reviewed many iterations of this light. I did the S42 not that long ago. And one of my very first reviews was of the Manker E14 (which I later sold, and hugely regretted selling).
This is yet another update on that platform, with 219c emitters, and some other improvements. Read on for more!
Here’s one of those random reviews of a light (and items) that I purchase myself, and am completely free to say what I want. (That’s a joke; I say what I want about all items I review, no matter how I get them.) This is a light I’ve eyeballed for ages, but never ponied up the money for. I had a failed purchase through another site, so I decided to use that money for this light. It’s the Oveready Lava P60 host. I paired it with two drop ins; a 371d p60 triple drop in, and an Oveready DIP 8-mode 219c drop in. I’m excited to have this light, and glad to put forth this review!
There’s a new maker in town! These guys are FidgetHQ, makers of some fine and very popular fidget spinners in brass, stainless, copper, and titanium. They know how to get things done, and they’ve set their eyes on flashlight. This is their first offering, a triple emitter, 18650/18350 light, with Bistro firmware. Here’s my review of this light!
It’s been a long time since I reviewed a Manker light, though I have liked most of the Manker’s I’ve had. The E14 is still a personal favorite (and in my opinion, a watershed light). Good friends have described the E03H as a must have, so I … had to have one! Fortunately Fasttech came through for me. So here’s the review of the E03H!
I tend to get suckered in to the newest things…. And when those newest things involve Nichia, I end up with new lights. This is one of those new things, the Emisar D4.
