    Xtar's VC2s is a great little charger.

    Before I found Xtar battery chargers I had gone through various expensive AA-D size NiMh chargers that were cheaply made and provided poor performance. When I needed to charge my first 18650 battery because I got a fancy flashlight I choose an Xtar battery charger for two reasons. Good product...

    Sofirn's C8A is a flashlight worthy of owning because it is fantastic.

    I own a few nice C8’s made by Lumintop and Nitecore. I thought these C8’s were nice and bright. Then I received a C8A from Sofirn to do a review. The Sofirn C8A turns out to be the brightest single emitter flashlight I own now. One of the things I like about it is that has a good amount of side...

    Photo review of the Sofirn SP32a flashlight.

    [INDENT] Sofirn provided me the flashlight for review. It is a very well built light for the price. I am still analyzing the included battery and charger so no comment about those yet. The flashlight is very bright and heats up fast on turbo mode. I view this as good heat sinking. The beam is...

    Nitecore EA41 & Fenix E41

    Not looking to anger anyone or say anything negative about Fenix or Nitecore flashlights. Since it is to my understanding that the emitters in both the Nitecore EA41 & Fenix E41 flashlights rest atop a plastic shelf has anyone had a premature failure with either one of these flashlights? Thanks.

    Question regarding two eBay sellers: Quality China Goods & Hi-Fi Flashlights.

    Forgive me if this post is in the wrong place. Both of the listed eBay sellers are from China and of course sell flashlights. Has anyone had a good or bad experience with either seller? I am thinking of buying flashlights from them. Thanks.

    Just found this light. It has great specifications and it's just $50.00 at some retailers. Does anyone have some thoughts about it? It has a higher turbo output than the Fenix PD35.

    Ordered an Fenix LD12 S2. Just got it today. L.E.D. tint is green. Does not bother me at all. Why do so many people dislike L.E.D.‘s with a green tint ?

    Question about older Nichia L.E.D.'s

    I have a few old flashlights that have Nichia L.E.D.'s. I do not use them. But once a year or so I fire them up and the output is dimmer than I remember. Do these older L.E.D.'s degrade over time even when they are not used ?

    A simple review of the Jetbeam BA10 & BA20

    Please consider for submission in the reviews forum. I needed a very bright light when taking out a disabled old dog at night. I purchased a Jetbeam BA10 & BA20 for this task. The BA10 was not quite bright enough. However the BA20 was perfect. Other smaller brighter lights use exotic expensive...
