I recently got this not-new FourSevens light, the Preon P1 mkIII. Prometheus Lights (aka Dark Sucks) took up the mantle of Four Sevens recently and so the mkIII has some improvements. Read on for some testing and thoughts!
Today I have in my hands a light from a brandI haven’t reviewed in a while – Olight! This is the i5T EOS, an AA tactical two-mode light. Read on for some testing and thoughts!
I’ve tested a bunch of Vapcell cells, but I think this is the first charger. Also it’s been a long time since I tested a charger and so I ended up not testing this one in a timely manner. This is my last remaining 2019 review item. Sorry Vapcell and thanks for being patient! Also I’m stating up front that my charger reviews are likely going to get scaled back. In this case I’m basically testing the main feature, which is the ability to charge 4 bays at 3A each!!
Lumintop is now offering an updated version of the ever-popular Tool AA light – the 2.0 version is made of titanium, and offers some neat features! Read on!
XTAR has a nice new EIGHT BAY charger available, and it’s powered by USB-C. Those are both fairly unusual features. Also the charger is inexpensive, so it’s definitely worth consideration.
I recently snagged this venerable classic by Surefire. My second Surefire…. This is the Surefire Titan Plus, a coated brass LED light in AAA twisty format. Read on for thoughts and testing!
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.
Lumintop has expanded the In Your Pocket (“IYP”) series of lights by two recently. There’s the new IYP25, which is a 2-up AA light, and the IYP07, which is a single AAA light. Today I’m having a look at the IYP07…. a light I’m very excited about!!
Today I have in for review another Nitecore, but from an unusual source. This one’s from Banggood. This is one of those lipstick lantern style lights, and accepts AA sized cells.
Neal over at NealsGadgets sent a new Lumintop my way. It’s an update to the EDC05… Quite an update too, because this one adds some…
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!
BLF has conspired yet again to design a light that it’s impossible to not want. This time it’s a tiny AAA light, made by Sofirn, with a Yuji emitter, and very high CRI. The single mode is very low output, but with very long runtimes, and two temperatures available. It’s also very inexpensive!
Convoy has added a small AA light to their lineup. It’s a small version of the Convoy S2+, and called the T2. It’s literally a shrunken S2+, which is fantastic, but lacks Li-ion support. Read on for more!
I finally got a message in to someone at Armytek, and they sent this Handy C1 Pro as a first review item. This is a single-bay, Li-Ion/NiMH (!!) charger, with a USB-out function! Read on for my first review of 2019, on an item I’ve had for almost 3 months!
My first “real” cell charger was a Nitecore D4. Nitecore came close to replacing it a while back with the SC4, but they’ve certainly done it with these new two chargers – the USM2 and USM4. These chargers (most importantly?) fit 21700 cells, among other awesome features. Read on!
Wuben is still hitting the scene hard. I’ve reviewed a Wuben before, the TO10R. The build quality is great, and I was interested to see if Wuben would keep that trend going. They sent the E05, which I believe has just been released, and here’s my review and test of it!
Xtar has a bunch of new chargers out, including this update to a previous model. This is the VC2S, which steps up the game from the original VC2 by adding an S!! Maybe more, but read on to find that info out!
