    Fenix PD36R USB-C Rechargeable Flashlight

    I've grown somewhat selective in what I agree to review. Like so many "old timers" here, I have figured out what I like and not much catches my attention. Don't mean to sound snobby – not at all – just 64 years young and set in my ways. And my reviews are purely from an everyman's perspective –...

    Fenix E05R Mini-Review

    Sold/Expired Haiku, Hive, XPL4200

    SOLD. Needs little introduction. No deep scratches or marks - in fact, I can't really find any marks. I have bridged the points to make it programmable, and I set it up basically like the 3S converter - the lowest low, medium at about 25%, and full blast on high. Mode memory - remembers the...

    Amazing Laulima Metal Craft Aluminum Ion

    @jon_slider, I'm not even sure about the lumen levels. My guess is that it tops out at around 800-900, based on other H17Fx/Nichia 219B lights out there. There are 2 banks of programming - mine showed up with 2 levels in one bank - looked to be around 30%/100%, then the other bank had 4...

    Amazing Laulima Metal Craft Aluminum Ion

    These are truly the good old days of flashlights/torches. And it’s a tough space for the builders, as mass-produced, imported lights capture the attention of the masses, and make it tough for custom builders in the US and other countries. For custom builders to differentiate themselves, they...
