LED

LED technology keeps getting more and more common. As it does, the costs keep going down, and the cycle of innovation and placing them into more and more common items continues. Sansi, through their Loftek brand, has an LED bulb that doesn't need a hub to be "group-able" and controllable from an app on your… Read More

If you are familiar with the name Pelican, then you may know that they are known for their cases that are tough, durable, and long-lasting.  I was unaware that Pelican made flashlights, so naturally I was very curious on how good their flashlights could be.

They are valuable tools to have around for emergencies or work usages.  Most flashlights these days are LED based because of the advantages of energy efficiency and high lumens output. I'm here to test OLight's M10 Maverick LED Flashlight that was provided by BatteryJunction.com. The OLight M10 Maverick is a mini LED… Read More

Fenix TK70 Flashlight Review

I have reviewed many fancy flashlights on The Gadgeteer, most of them relatively small, compact and for their size, pretty bright. Well, this time I am reviewing the Fenix TK70 courtesy of Fenix Outfitters.

One thing you can never be without is a good flashlight, especially one that has a bright brilliant light. But for me a flashlight is just a flashlight. That is unless it has something about it that gives it a unique characteristic. And the PrimeTorch 1010 by Primus is one such flashlight. One thing I… Read More

It seems like all the cool stuff is coming from Kickstarter these days. The Packlight is another product that will hopefully see the light of day (sorry, I couldn't resist the pun). The Packlight is a 45 LED light that can bend into convenient shapes. It has neodymium magnets so that it can be affixed… Read More

We know LEDs are great for flashlights, status lights for your smartphones, and a bunch of other uses, but raise your hand if you ever thought to use LEDs on a bottle of vodka. Anyone? Anyone?

I have a weakness for small flashlights. When a company offers one for review, I'll almost always say yes. That's why I didn't hesitate to agree to review two new LED flashlights from ICON when they asked if I would be interested. We have reviewed their products before and have appreciated both their unique style… Read More

I don't know about you, but I hate it when I go to a restaurant that is so dark that I can't read the items on the menu. I found something that might help. It's the UltraOptix. It is an LED lighted 2X magnifying lens with a 6X portion that is small and thin enough… Read More
