Today we are discussing recent power outages in Australia due to a storm. Flashlight Fanatics is an Australian-based podcast about flashlights starring Darren Yeo and Tim McMahon.
The ReyLight Pineapple Mini is my favourite EDC torch. Today I am reviewing the aluminium version in orange.
The NEXTORCH TA20 is a compact tactical torch with: a two-stage tail button, a rotary mode selection switch, a tactical ring, a pocket clip and a strike bezel with three nano-ceramic beads.
The Acebeam Terminator M2 has a lot going on! It has a floodlight, a spotlight and an RGB AUX Light with seven colours. This EDC torch is powered by a single 18650 cell. And it is controlled by two switches.
The XTAR VC8S is an eight slot Li-ion and Ni-MH charger with USB-C PD3 and QC3 input. One of the main improvements over the XTAR VC8 is that the VC8S can use all eight slots for storage and capacity test modes. And I noticed that 26800 cells fit too!
This RovyVon A8 (4th generation) keychain torch has a polycarbonate body, a stainless steel bezel, a Nichia 219C 5000K Neutral White 90 CRI primary emitter behind a TIR optic, three side emitters (365nm UV, 625nm red, 4000K Warm White), a metal button and USB-C charging.
The Sofirn BS01 is a relatively affordable Smart Bike Light with a built-in 21700 cell, USB-C charging and a power bank feature.
The Manker Striker Mini is a tactical AA-sized torch with a large two-way stainless steel strike bezel. It can produce a beam capable of reaching a distance of over 430 metres due to the Osram KW CSLNM1.TG emitter and the smooth reflector.
