Civivi knives seem to be all the rage lately (at least, that’s all that’s hitting my radar!). I couldn’t resist this orange G10 version, and I love a flipper. So I grabbed this one, and thought some photos were in order.
I have the fortune of having in my hands today the new limited edition orange Olight Perun Mini. Read on for some thought and testing and photos, but be advised I’m loving the orange (of course.) There are some interesting changed from Olight in the “headlamp” package, this time around.
There’s a new version of the convenient XTAR powerbank/charger. It’s the PB2C, and adds USB-C charging. Also relevant is what it takes away – cost. This one is inexpensive!
Here’s a version 2 light by Nitecore, where I have surprisingly never reviewed the first version. It’s the TUBE2.0; a slim keychain light, with a bare 5mm emitter and ramping. Read on for some testing!
My Fun Fund Friday review for today is of a light I couldn’t not own. It’s an orange coated ReyLight called the Gemini. Now, this particular copy that I purchased myself, is from the secondary market, and the UI has been swapped entirely for something custom. So I’m mainly showing my evaluation of the physical light itself and I’ll probably also comment some on the UI, which is ToyKeeper’s Crescendo. Hope that type post interests you, and please read on!
I’m a flashlight guy, no secret, but any time I have a light on my person, I also have a knife. But I’m not a typical knife guy – I strongly prefer really small knives. It’s a never ending quest. I saw this little guy and knew I had to have it. This Nite Ize DoohicKey knife isn’t the perfect knife for me, but it’s the one that I’ve carried for months now.
I love playing with RC cars. I’m not “good at it” (since there are competitions, there is a “good at it”), but I thoroughly enjoy it. Other members of my family do, too. After my review of the VKAR [super fast] car, I wanted something slower that I could more readily hand off to others, for crawling, and the like.
Enter the Redcat Gen8 International Scout. Of course I love this thing because it’s orange, but it checks off so many of my boxes, too, I am excited to give it a look.
Vortex contacted me out of the blue one day, about these review lights. I wasn’t terribly interested except that 1) their lights have orange accents and 2) the lights have a charging base. Normally that might not be a big deal but as I understood it, the light would come on if there was a power disconnect to the base. That’s a pretty big deal. Read on to see if that’s how things went!
An aliexpress store recently got in touch regarding some Sanrenmu knives. I typically like these knives (I’ve reviewed a few.) So I said sure! And that leads us to today, with the fixed blade S611-4. In orange!!
