    Thorfire asked if I would review the Thorfire TK01 Flashlight. This is a keychain sized flashlight that uses a single AAA battery. The Thorfire TK01 has a single setting of 85 lumens, which is going to be bright enough to change a car tire at night, look under the hood, use around a camp...

    Review of the Sofirn SF14 flashlight. The only real issue I found with the flashlight was it flickered with AA batteries. The flicker was not that bad, but the company is addressing the issue with an upgraded model of the flashlight. When using the 14500 battery, the light did not flicker. A...

    Olight contacted me through YouTube and asked if I would like to do a review on one of their lights, of course I said yes. So they sent me the Olight M2R Warrior Flashlight. Overall, I liked this design and brightness settings. However, I wish the on/off button behind the bezel was easier to...

    Wowtac sent me one of their A3 flashlights to review. It uses a single 18650 battery that has a built in micro-usb port. For some reason youtube said this video was not appropriate for advertisers. The only way I can get a manual review is if it reaches over 1,000 views, so please watch the...

    I fancied something a little different, so bought this flashlight from Banggood. It's priced at US$26.95 which seems quite a bargain for the build quality and finish. I bought this flashlight at full price and haven't been offered anything to review it or be positive about it...

    The Thrunite TC12 is unique in that it has a built in battery charger. Plug in a micro-USB cable to charge the flashlight. While charging the brightness selector button flashes. Being USB rechargeable makes this is an excellent truck, car or nightstand flashlight design. Keep the Thrunite...

    My Thrunite TI3 arrived in what looked like a metal Altoids tin. The packing was superb in every detail. Inside the metal tin, the TI3 was in a foam liner that was cut out to hold the flashlight in place. There was no rolling around or rattle. The flashlight arrived in prefect condition without...

    Up until just a few days ago I had never heard of ThruNite, much less the ThruNite TN12. Someone on youtube reached out and asked if I would be interested in reviewing the TN12. After looking at the light I said sure, I would love to see it. Looking at the ThruNite TN12 on amazon, I asked...
