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.

Sofirn C01 Single Mode, Yuji High CRI, AAA Flashlight Review

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 T2 Flashlight Review

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!

Nitecore UMS2 and UMS4 Charger Review

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 E05 Flashlight Review

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!

Zanflare F10 Tactical Pen Flashlight Review

Sometimes items show up that I don’t really know much about, and didn’t really plan on reviewing.  This is one of those items.  Fortunately it’s a flashlight too, so I can certainly evaluate that aspect of it….  The rest I’ll mostly leave to photos to describe.
