I have in my hands today the new Nitecore powerbank, which is a lipo pouch cell, allowing a very flat, rectangular (phone like!) size and shape.  It’s also comparatively high capacity, so read on for some thoughts and testing!

Nitecore TIKI Keychain Flashlight Review

What can I say about the TIKI that I haven’t already said about the RovyVon Aurora series.  We should get this discussion out of the way at the start:  version one of the Aurora, which was released maybe a year and a half ago, and this TIKI/TIKI LE are basically the same.  I asked Nitecore about this specifically, and they declined to respond.  I asked RovyVon about this specifically and they were very clear that this was in no way whatsoever a collaboration in any format.

Nitecore NU17 Headlamp Review

Nitecore has a new ultralight headlamp, with high output, high CRI, and red all built in!  It’s smaller than the previous iteration of this light, so would likely be great for long runs and the like.

Nitecore NM01 Flashlight Review

Nitecore’s just released a light with what appears to be a built in 18650.  It’s fairly low cost, and can be considered a “complete package” light, and has features that can make it a compelling entry point to flashlights.  Read on for more!

Nitecore F4 Powerbank/Charger Review

I heard about this new Nitecore powerbank/charger a while back, and finally have one in my hands.  Well not right now; I’m typing right now.  Who can hold a powerbank and type at the same time?  

Anyway, I wanted to give this one a test, and the nice people over at Illumn sent this one for me to play around with.  Read on for some thoughts!

Nitecore NTK05 Knife Review

Today I have in my hands a … knife… from Nitecore.  It’s an unusual device, so calling it a knife might be a bit of a misnomer, because it’s most usual use case will likely not be … knifing.  What it essentially is, is a titanium scalpel handle.  Read on for more photos and a few thoughts!

Nitecore NU25 Headlamp Review

I’ve reviewed a bunch of Nitecore lights, but somehow this little headlamp slipped under the radar.  Nitecore reached out, and soon this diminutive three emitter, high CRI, lightweight headlamp was in my hands!  This is my kind of light, so I’m interested to see if it’s any good!
