Klarus AR10 rechargeable flashlight review

We Gadgeteers love our flashlights, don’t we? Small and large, piercing the darkness like a searchlight or dimly preserving our tactical night vision, we love them all. I was recently sent my first Klarus unit to test, the AR10 rechargeable flashlight. It’s a pretty straightforward torch, at first glance, but there are hidden superpowers within.

I won’t take a bullet for you, but here’s one to light your way

In the world of EDC, one of the main features we look for is size. If a piece of EDC equipment is too big or too heavy, we don’t have time for it. The BULLET, a Kickstarter project, is listed as the world’s smallest LED flashlight, and by the looks of it, I cannot disagree. …

ZeroHour Relic XR tactical flashlight review

A year ago I reviewed the Zerohour XD tactical flashlight and closed by saying that it was probably the last flashlight I’d ever purchase.  Well, the folks at Zerohour haven’t been standing still and have recently introduced the little brother to the XD and I may have to eat my words.  I’ll give it a …

Fenix FD40 LED flashlight review

My name is Andy, and I’m a Flashaholic.  I have a lumen problem.  Ever since my first “cool” flashlight 30 years ago, the MagLite, I’ve been chasing the next go-to handheld torch.  This illumination arms race has only escalated in the past 15 years with the introduction of better and brighter LEDs.  Today I’ve got the …

Lifestyle 800 Lumens Cree LED flashlight review

Even though I review mostly audio gear, I jumped at the chance to test the Cree LED High Power Searchlight. My interest was piqued when I bought a 250 lumen flashlight to replace my aging Maglight and its pathetically weak bulb. But once I saw that the Cree light was 800 lumens, I couldn’t resist. …
