Compact and cool

cacher - Mon, 20/11/2017 - 16:50 - Nitecore LA10 135 lumen 1 X AA LED camping light

I bought this for in the tent, or under the tarp, when out camping. Functionally, it's typical Nitecore ie built well, feels solid.

Simple to use, just turn the light on and off in under 2 seconds to change brightness. I thing the Beacon mode is pretty useless, but it doesn't cost extra, so what the hell.

It feels like the turning mechanism is goings to last a good while. It's not plasticy or weak feeling. Time will tell.

Brightness is great, with a decent run time for a one AA torch.

Glad I bought it, I may buy one for the car in the future. The magnet in the base seems like it'd come in very handy to attach it under the bonnet for hands free operation.

I'd like to see a solid wire hanger of some sort. The lanyard is functional, but it swings around with the breeze.

All in all though, I can see this coming on every trip.


Good, but not perfect

cacher - Mon, 20/11/2017 - 16:40 - Nitecore HA20 die-cast 2 X AA CREE XP-G2 LED headlamp

I bought this to replace my HC90 (900 lumen) headlight. TBH, 900 lumens in a headlight is pretty useless, and this is around half the weight.

Initial impressions are that it's solid, it holds in place well, but turns easily, fits well on my head.

Battery installation is tricky. The AAs need to be installed perfectly or the little door won't close. Don't force it, it's plastic. I am sure it will get easier with practice. The strap is functional, but if you like to remove the top strap, you would have to cut it off, so make sure you really want it gone.

Speaking of batteries, when you install the AAs in the HA20, do NOT look at the red led's. They do that god awful battery level indication thing, and it will blind you if you're not careful.

Price is excellent. Especially considering the body is aluminium, and it's 300 lumens. If you want a comparison, check out prices on the LED Lenser SEO7R, which run ~ $160 and up for a plastic light.

All in all, I am happy I bought this headlight and I think it will be a good replacement for my heavy old HC90.


Good all-round every day carrier

jrplane - Wed, 08/11/2017 - 01:37 - Klarus RS20 1050 lumen rechargeable multi-purpose LED torch and lantern

Had the flashlight for about a month now, so far have used it at work on night shift and walking the dog, first impressions is it is a great little torch with a number of different lighting options, great value for money and it feels and looks good quality, i think ill get a lot of life out of it,

The torch is good value for money, plenty of throw and intensity for 99% of applications, usb charging is mint and that side lantern is handy (there are 2 white light settings super bright and really bright - the only thing that i think would suit this flashlight better is having the second white light setting a lot softer for close quarter stuff)

Otherwise a mint little flashlight, the team at liteshop are awesome, just ordered a few things and they arrived a few days later - easy :-) Thanks guys

Acebeam L16

crossm - Thu, 14/09/2017 - 20:40 - AceBeam L16 XHP35 HI 2000 lumen 603m rechargeable LED torch

Super bright pocket thrower.

Light and compact enough to be very handy, ridiculously bright, seems robust enough to use regularly. The build quality is excellent. The user interface is great. Anodizing couldn't be faulted. But for me it isn't perfect.

I dislike the micro USB charging port but love that it is rechargeable. That would be the only thing I would change if I were able to; the method of recharging. The micro USB plug gives me the irrits and doesn't instil confidence in its ability to maintain waterproofing. It is a bit fiddly and I've popped the plug open unintentionally a few times. But to be fair it could just be my handling method.

But guys, this is a genuinely over delivering torch. I have a range of brands for other torches from cheapy Led Lenser, to more Acebeam's to Sunwayman and Fenix. This torch is on par with the better brands in terms of quality of manufacturing and its output is outstanding.

If you're not sure about spending the dough then go back to looking at even more reviews on YouTube and second guessing yourself. Or just buy this thing and be amazed by it like I am. In my opinion it is worth every cent.


I received the S2 Baton today

greg - Wed, 30/08/2017 - 10:34 - Olight S2 Baton compact 950 lumen LED torch

and tested it a little this evening. What a great little light! Compact, very powerful for its size, a nice clean broad beam and the 2600mAh 18650 should last ages between recharges. Ideal for my needs while travelling. Thanks for the advice and your recommendation of the S2. I‘m a very happy camper J.


Very solid Headlight!

troygibson2 - Thu, 17/08/2017 - 15:34 - Ferei BL200 1720 lumen bicycle light

This is an excellent headlight for MTB riding. The mounting bracket is the best I've ever had, once its positioned it stays rock solid and exactly where you set it. The beam design is excellent too.
This upgraded version (although not shown in photos) is much better than the original too with the sapphire glass button and 3 "fuel gauge" lights.
I find this headlight to be great value for money, a perfect design and very well built.
And on top of that, service from this company is always impeccable!

Acebeam K70

davidexton - Sun, 30/07/2017 - 00:57 - AceBeam K70 1.3km 2600 lumen LED search light

This torch has some really serious throw.The forward clicky tail switch and rotating bezel combine to make a really useful on/off mode selection setup.The inclusion of a holster and the bargain price make it hard not to buy.


Olight i3s colour options

Olight i3s Keychain Torch

davidexton - Sun, 30/07/2017 - 00:47 - Olight i3s 80 lumen 1 x AAA LED keyring torch

This is a fairly bright little torch - maybe understated at 80 lumens. It has some really useful little features too - the ability to remove the torch from the key ring or the chain - via the clasps on either end of the chain - being one example.


Thrunite Ti3

davidexton - Sun, 30/07/2017 - 00:41 - ThruNite Ti3 130 lumen AAA LED keyring torch

This is a very bright little torch with surprising throw for a single AAA of its size.With the clip attached it is easy to use and access all modes with one hand.


Manker E01

davidexton - Sun, 30/07/2017 - 00:36 - Manker E01 102 lumen 1 X AAA NICHIA 219C LED torch

This torch has a really nice form - sort of like a shrunken bigger torch.It works quite well.

This is a beautiful looking torch and works quite well.Makes an ideal Shelf Queen too.


Fenix UC02 Keychain Torch

davidexton - Sun, 30/07/2017 - 00:30 - Fenix UC02 130 lumen rechargeable LED keyring torch

These things are incredibly bright (and the battery is really cute).High is actually too bright in some situations - the reflection created when locating the slot for the key in a lock for example - so the inclusion of a low setting is very useful.Being USB rechargeable is also a great feature.
