Nitecore has recently released a couple of special edition small lights, the full copper TIP and TINI. While I’ve reviewed the TINI before, I thought a full copper version might warrant an updated 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!
The iconic design of this TorchLAB BOSS (Bright Output Small Size) drew me in immediately, and I was finally able to purchase one. Click through for photos and more!
Here’s a 26650 light that’s about the most EDC’able 26650 light available. I tested the runtime, and carried it for a while to see how it fared.
