Acebeam E10 Osram (White) Flashlight Review

Today I have in my hands a little light from Acebeam that packs quite a throwy punch!  The E10 is a 26350 cell dedicated thrower, and quite a little thrower it is.  Read on for some testing and thoughts.

YLP Unicorn 1.0 Flashlight Review

I’ve seen these YLP lights floating around a bunch lately and they seem interesting enough that I wanted my own shot at them.  YLP agreed…

Lumintop HL3A Flashlight Review

Here’s a light that is “another in the series” so in many ways this is a review you can already sort of expect.  On the other hand this is the first of the series of FW type lights to be right angle!  This is the HL3A, and I’ve had this review done for a while and waiting on the official product page.  That’s up, so here’s this review!

Rover Camel Ta6132 Keychain Flashlight Review

There’s a new titanium keychain light on the market, by a brand you probably haven’t heard of.  This is the Rover Camel Ta6132, and it’s a pretty well featured little light, that also happens to be keychain size.  Read on for some testing and thoughts!

RovyVon A28 Flashlight Review

I find no better way to start 2020 than with a post about a RovyVon light.  RovyVon was huge for me in 2019, and I have this post and more upcoming from them.  This is the A28, a clear body light which has two secondary emitters – red and UV.

RovyVon A3x Flashlight Review

RovyVon has released an update to their very popular Aurora A2/A3 series of lights.  RovyVon sent over an updated A3 light – the A3x.  This is as much a new light as it is an update, but addresses issues raised from the initial release.  Have a look, and see if the improvements are compelling!

Rofis TC1 Keychain Flashlight Review

I have a fairly long history of liking lights by Rofis.  [Here are some other reviews.]  This is a new little light by Rofis, which uses a built in 10180 cell, has on-board charging, and a very unusual switch.  It looks like it might be something else but ultimately it’s just a capacitive switch.  Read on for more thoughts and info!

Fenix E18R Flashlight Review

I’m pleased to have another Fenix light review.  This is a brand that seems underrepresented in (at least “my”) reviews, and I hope to get to reviewing more of them.  This is another small light, using a 16340 cell, with built in magnetic charging.  Read on!

Olight S1R II Baton and Olight S2R Baton II Flashlight Review

Olight has a couple of new, similar lights out. Updates of some older models, they are. These are the S1RII Baton, and the S2R Baton II. Yes, those are the official names. No, the 18650 version isn’t “S2RII Baton” – it’s actually “S2R Baton II,” while the 16340 version is the “S1RII Baton.”

Throughout this review, I’ve tried to always discuss the S1RII Baton first, followed by the S2R Baton II. The photos are generally laid out that way. The lights are similar enough that if I don’t specify, you may assume that the feature being discussed is shared by the two lights.

Fenix E16 Flashlight Review

Going small is the big thing in 16340 lights lately, and Fenix has entered the game.  The Fenix E16 is a tiny light – definitely the smallest 16340 light I’ve handled (and I’d guess the very smallest on the market).  I’ve been using this one for a while, so read on for my thoughts!

RovyVon A2 IP Blue and A3 Gun Gray Flashlight Review

I was fortunate to continue the discourse with RovyVon, and they sent two more of these tiny Aurora keychain lights.  This time it’s the A2 and A3.  I’m reviewing them together because they really only differ in body material.  But they’re different from the A5 I already reviewed in that they don’t have secondary emitters.  Read on to see how they act!

Olight I3T EOS Flashlight Review

Olight sent a couple of their new lights for review.  The I3T and the I1R.  Today I’m reviewing the first of those two, the I3T.  It’s a triple A clicky, with a simple UI.

Xiaomi Flashlight/Powerbank Review

This unusual light just showed up in the mail one day.  It’s not one I’d ask for and not something that would be in my normal rotation, but I figured ‘why not’?  So here’s the Xiaomi LED 240Lm Minimalist Portable Flashlight.

Olight S1 Mini Flashlight Review

I’ve been a huge fan of the Olight S Mini (the brass S Mini is one of my most used lights!), and this S1 Mini is in some ways, it’s successor.  Yes, it’s from the S1 lineage, but it’s smaller than the S Mini; which is more important?  And now it’s available in High CRI?  I was very interested.  Keep reading to see how I like it now!

DQG Tiny AA Brass Flashlight Review

I’m on a brass kick lately!  So I asked GearBest to send me this DQG Tiny AA Brass.  I already know I like DQG lights a lot, and I already know I like brass… So I was excited to see this one in person!

CooYoo Quantum CY in Brass Flashlight Review

Another review light from GearBest! This time it’s the CooYoo Quantum CY Mini – mine is brass. I have had a few small lights, and it’s interesting to see how this one stacks up. (Actually small lights is all I have now, save for one!)
