Reylight Quad Emitter Dawn Custom Maratac™ LED Flashlight + Glow Afterburner Flashlight Review

CountyComm has teamed with Reylight in the past, and made a popular light (one which I myself like a bunch.)  That was a triple, and based on the success of the triple, and Rey’s skill with quads, there’s now a quad version.

Nightwatch NSX4 Flashlight Review

In my hands for review today is another light from Neal at NealsGadgets.com.  I’m not sure if this is a Neal house brand or what but I don’t see the Nightwatch brand many other places.  This is the Nightwatch NSX4, a four emitter light which accepts a very unusual cell size: 26800.  These are available from Neal with a special charger that supports this larger size.  Read on for testing and thoughts!

Wuben TO50R HC Flashlight Review

This is the Wuben TO50R, which started on BLF as “The Flashlight.”  It claimed at the time 2500 lumens (bumped to 2800 now), high CRI, on-board charging, a cell included, and can be used as a powerbank, too.

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!

JETBeam T6 Flashlight Review

I’ve gotten a taste for bigger lights and even though this isn’t a new light, I was excited to get it from GearBest.  And I happen to typically like JETBeam lights, too.  So here’s the JETBeam T6!

BLF Q8 Flashlight Review

The list on BLF to preorder this light was long, and long ago.  After getting on the list, I promptly forgot and never checked back.  When the hype train started regarding orders for this light, it was with bitterness and spite that I started the “Q8 Hate.” (In jest of course.)  Much to my surprise, when I checked I was on the list!  I ordered the light, and [spoiler] love this light!

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..
