    Nitecore TM03 Flashlight Video Review. (Cree XHP70, 1x 18650)

    Nitecore Tiny Monster TM03 Flashlight Review It looks like a few reviews of this light have been posted already, but here's my take. It's a very very bright light for a single emitter and a single battery. The Turbo step-down is pretty fast, and the battery is a proprietary cell- used only...
