    I found a Unicorn = Acebeam e70-al

    Still the best overall light that I own (& I've added a few more). It's the light I reach for when I know I'm going to NEED a light at 100yds or less but I don't know for what or for how long. The UI is still great, the range of lumen levels fit any need I've come across & even with 6hrs of run...

    Sofirn SC21

    Still a nice little light. Survived a trip thru the washer n dryer which was not planned. Great light to put in the watch pocket of your jeans when you want a bright light, OK run times & to go unnoticed (see above). Good light for the "better to have it & not need it...etc" crowd. Ridiculously...

    Sofirn S11C

    Nothing to see here. Both lights still get a lot of use when just having a flashlight handy is the standard. They do nothing well except work & be handy when you just need a bit of light. Current price is around $15 w/battery, shipped. It's a light that's easy to use, does what most people use a...

    Fenix E35 v3

    Turbo drops off noticeably in less than a minute, I'd say it holds pretty good for the first 30sec. The 1200L (claimed) high holds well, I've run it for 5 min w/o a noticeable drop but it does start to warm up pretty good at this output. The light hammers the 450L medium level(& below), I've...

    Sofirn S32A v2

    It's dead. One drop (from the 2nd floor) was enough to do it in. Nothing broke & very very little noticeable damage but no light, no way, no how. Anyone know how to take this thing apart? I'd like to see if I can find the fail point

    IMALENT MR90 pop can flashlight. 50,000 lumens - 1586m beam distance - Fan assisted - 8 x XHP70.2 = 1 x SBT90.2 - 19V/2A DC fast charging & built-in 4

    I'm going to guess if you have a 50k/l light to reach for you most likely have an 18650 light in your pocket. Use the low on that one or do you drive nails with a sledgehammer too

    Sofirn IF25a

    +1 on these lights needing good batteries for best performance. My only complaint about the Anduril UI (I have 4 A1 lights) is they all seem to have about a 10% shorter run time then similar lights with equal batteries but different UIs. It's not a big thing but it is noticeable. I've also...

    Fenix SD11

    With a good 18650 & a bunch more use I LOVE this light even more! The biggest downside to how I'm using the light is it's not water cooled. You really need to keep the run times at 500L short & 1000L even shorter. Used for video/picture taking the shorter runs isn't much of an issue. Set up the...

    Fenix E35 v3

    Biggest negatives about this light are still the substandard UI (IMHO) & the poor CRI in the lower lumen levels, it does get better at 450L & up. Biggest pluses? It's built like a tank & will hold a 450L level w/o heat or run time issues. Been using this light A LOT lately mounted on a tripod as...

    Sofirn IF25a

    A quick update on my IF25a's. Both still working great. My "outdoor" light (6500k) gets the Samsung 30t for max brightness & the "indoor" light (4000k) the included Sofirn battery for more run time. Both lights are set up differently because of their intended use(s), a fantastic feature of the...

    Sofirn S32A v2

    Quick update to my sp32av2 light. It's become a go to light for around the house. Spacing of the levels are still good as is turbo being left to a shortcut & not in the loop. Run times have been good. I've had several 5+hr runs at 160 and a few 2+hrs runs at 500. 500 get slightly warm but I...

    I found a Unicorn = Acebeam e70-al

    So after a couple of months of regular use my initial review has been reinforced, it's a great light. Since most of my use is in the lower light levels (ML-Mid1) I most often use the Sofirn battery. (see above post) Daily use is mostly indoors so the 5K temp with reasonable CRI & broad even beam...

    Sofirn S11C

    Still no issues with either of the lights I've been using almost daily. Keep 1 on the gun safe & the other is mostly in my pocket or stuck to the rank in the hall near the door. I have used 1 for a couple of estate sales where I didn't expect to need a light. Handled the job fine & just about...

    Sofirn SC21

    A bit of an update on my SC21. Works just like I'd hoped it would to date. It has been thru 5 recharge cycles. Battery doesn't take well to heavy use on high & turbo but that's to be expected from a rated 800mah battery. When it drops off of green it's time to hit the charger. Magnetic tail cap...

    Fenix SD11

    Haven't been using the light as much lately but I have used it enough to know it eats 123a like candy. If you get this light & plan to use it much .. get a good 18650 battery. Did find a new use for it also .. makes a great work light for short/smaller jobs

    Fenix E35 v3

    Been using this light for a bit over a month now & surprisingly a lot more often than I expected. It's been pretty much my default GP light, a use where the lack of ML & simple UI aren't really an issue, I already know what I'm getting into when I pick it up. Since the run time test I did with...

    Sofirn SC21

    Another in a growing line of Sofirn lights, this time a SC21. I was lacking a high lumen compact light & this one caught my eye with a good price & promising even better performance. Sadly it only fully delivered on one of those. It is compact at 2 7/8" long, 7/8" wide & less than 3oz. It has 5...

    Yep, my first thoughts too but no luck

    Nite Ize LED kit LUC2-07 for AA Mini Maglite

    You can mix & match parts if you want. Got the LED & reflector in one body & the tail switch in another. How does a MiniMag tail cap fail? Any working light I screw it into to stops working. I'll take a closer look at some point. One kit, 2 lights fixed

    I found a Unicorn = Acebeam e70-al

    While doing some run time testing I noticed a few things. 1) The Samsung 30T battery is just short enough that a hard knock or soft drop can cause the light to reset to OFF. 2) The Sofirn battery, also a flat top, is still about 1mm longer, enough to prevent the problem. 3) The 30T provides a...
