JETBeam KO-01 1080 Lumens Flashight Review

Jetbeam KO-01 Flashlight

This is a review of the JETBeam KO-01 flashlight. First impressions is a hefty feeling light that uses a single 18650 battery. It does not feel cheaply made at all.

Double click the on/off switch and it will activate the strobe. While in strobe, click the on/off and it will go to high. Then hold down the on/off to turn the JETBeam KO-01 flashlight off.

Tailcap is flat so it can be stood upright. Turn it on, stand it upright, and it will help light up a room.

Something I found to be unique, the tailcap accepts quick connect swivels. For the video I took a quick connect off one of my AR-15 rifles, and put it on the light. This means the light can be securely hung anywhere.

External USB port for charging. When charging, there is a blue led under the on/off switch that will glow blue. When finished charging, the led will turn off.

No carry case or belt click are included. To me, the belt clip and carry case are subjective. Some people may use them, while others may not.

Lanyard holes are rather small. However, with the quick connect swivel, do you need lanyard holes?

Jaxman M8 Review

The Jaxman M8 is a handheld flashlight that uses a single 18650 battery. Like a lot of flashlights of this style, the on/off button is located in the tailcap. Push the on/off button to turn the flashlight in, then gently press the button to cycle through the brightness settings.

ThruNite TN12 Flashlight Review

Thrunite TN12 Flashlight

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 myself how good could a $49 flashlight be?

First impressions are important. I liked the quality of the box and how the flashlight was packaged. It is “just a box” but first impressions are important. I liked the overall packaging, the light was held in place with padding.

Included in the package:

  • ThruNite TN12 2016
  • Belt / pocket clip
  • Replacement on/off cap
  • Two o’rings
  • Lanyard
  • Pouch – the pouch comes with a belt loop and a ring for attaching it to a pack.

Batteries are not included. The ThruNite TN12 2016 uses 1*18650 or 2*CR123 batteries.

Surefire 6PX Pro Flash Review

Surefire 6PX Pro

Surefire made a name for itself by manufacturing high quality products, and at an affordable price. The Surefire 6PX Pro is no exception, as it raises the bar in the sub $100 flashlight market.

Made in USA – Yes
Dual output – Yes, 200/15 lumens. Surefire website says there is a new 320 lumen model.
Momentary no/off – Yes
Lanyard – No
Water resistant – Yes
Water proof – Yes
Battery – 123A
Model – Surefire 6PX-B-BK

Made in USA – Its nice to see a company investing in the nation they are trying to sell their products in. In this case the Surefire 6PX Pro is advertised as being made in the USA.
