Lumintop FW21 Pro Flashlight Review

By this point you probably thought I’d reviewed all the FW series light.  You’d be wrong.  Today I have the FW21 Pro, and there are others in the series I haven’t even ever seen!  The FW21 Pro is a “triple” Cree XHP50.2 emitter light, with a bigger head for better heat-sinking.  Read on for more testing!

Acebeam TK18 AL Flashlight Review

Here’s another Acebeam light, very similar to the TK16 I’ve already reviewed.  This whole set of lights has different emitter options though, and runs on an 18650.  The UI is the same though.  If you liked the TK16 (like I did) then you’ll probably like the TK18 Al (like I… read on to find out.)

Armytek Zippy Keychain Flashlight Review

Today I have a little keychain light from Armytek.  This is the Zippy, and I have the “Extended Kit” – see what that means later.  It’s a tiny thing!  Great for keychains but probably better as a reading headlamp.  Read on for some testing!

LiionWholesale.com Samsung 30q 18650 Cell Review

I’m fortunate to have a “cell supplier” – LiionWholesale.com.  After my recent fake 30q review, I reached out with the wonder of what a set of real 30q’s would look like tested.  They agreed to send out a couple of authentic Samsung 30q’s (since they sell only authentic cells….).  So here’s a review of authentic Samsung 30q cells!
