Venom Orion Flashlight Review

I have a penchant for snagging things I don’t need, which meet the criteria for things I like.  I like brass triples.  This light by VenomDD wasn’t even on my radar, but I found a great price on a copy, so I snagged it.  (Thanks for pointing me to it, u/emarkd!)

Yes, this is another triple.  Another brass triple.  Does it cut the mustard?  Read on to find out!

Astrolux S43 Flashlight Review

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!

Acebeam EC65 Flashlight Review

After talking with the guys over at KillzoneFlashlights, and reviewing their 219b BLF-348, we got into some more serious discussions.  They sent a few more lights.  Two by Acebeam, and one of their own.  Here’s the first of those, the Acebeam EC65.

Lumintop Geek Flashlight Review

Today I have a light I’ve been geeked up about for a while now.  Lumintop sent one to me for review, and I put it through the paces.  Here’s the review of the Lumintop Geek!  It has Nichia!!

Lumintop IYP365 Pen Flashlight Review

What I have today is another Lumintop, in a long line of Lumintop reviews.  This is one I’ve been excited about, because it’s Nichia and brass.  Unfortunately, Lumintop didn’t want to send brass or titanium, but I’m not going to hold that against them. 🙂  Here’s the Lumintop IYP365 in aluminum, with a Nichia emitter.

Oveready Lava P60 with XP-L HI 371d and Optic DIP 219c Drop in Flashlight Review

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!

Lumintop Tool AAA, Aluminum, Copper, Brass, and Titanium Combo Review

In truth I’m probably the last flashlight person on Earth without a Lumintop Tool AAA.  But there are some variations I’ve gained interest in, and they’re also a an inexpensive way to get Nichia 219b emitters.  GearBest was kind enough to send three out for review.  After getting those three I liked them enough to purchase the Brass version for myself!

ReyLight Lan Ti, CaptRon25 Special, Flashlight Review

I’ve liked ReyLight for a while. I have a Pineapple, and it’s one of my go-to house lights. When CaptRon25 had a custom version of the Lan Ti produced, I was interested. I reached out, and here is the result! This is the polished version.

Okluma DC1 Brass, Custom Flashlight Review

Occasionally I get a wild hair to ask for a bit of a ‘dream light’ for review.  Such is the case with today’s review item.  I sent Jeff at Okluma a message much to my surprise, he had the perfectly light for me!

Emisar D4 (Nichia 219c) Flashlight Review

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.

Astrolux S42 Flashlight Review

With the continuing popularity of the Astrolux S41, an updated was developed: The S42.  This light is essentially iterative, but adds micro-USB charging.  And the Nichia emitter (which I have here) is 219c instead of 219b.  Possibly most importantly, a new user interface! Let’s see how this S42 stacks up!

Manker E14, Nichia 219b variety, Flashlight Review

Finally I get to see the Manker E14 (219B)! Another review light from GearBest! First of all, thanks to GearBest for providing this light. Second of all, I’m pleased to say that I already have experience with this light in the Astrolux S41 format and I liked that one enough to willingly accept the Manker version (the E14) as a review light from GearBest. I love the S41, let’s look at the Manker E14..
