As you can see from the extra long title, this review covers the satin limited edition version of the Quark 123 turbo. This light was very similar to the regular production Quark 123 turbo, but it did have a few keys differences.
Most noticeably, the finish is different. 4Sevens gave this light a very attractive satin finish on the already good looking titanium. A little less noticeable is the emitter. Instead of the regular R5 LED, the satin Quark had the fairly rare S3 LED. In practical use the different LED might not make a huge difference in brightness, but the rarity of the emitter makes it highly sought after to enthusiasts. The user interface is the same as the regular production models of the Quark 123 turbo; no big change there. Overall it is the little details that set this limited edition version apart from the production model.
Unfortunately, this light has been sold out for a while now. 4Sevens limited edition lights usually go pretty quickly, but there is always the chance that they may decide to do another run. The production model is in stock at our store if you decide you can’t live without one after you watch the video.
Lights like the Fenix TK35 were unheard of just a few years ago. Even if you knew of a flashlight that had this kind of performance, it would have cost you an arm and a leg. It’s a good time to be a flashlight enthusiast. The technology that makes mega output lights like the TK35 possible is fairly new, and it is evolving every day.
The TK35 uses either 4 CR123 batteries, or 2 rechargeable 18650s. Thanks to new technology the TK35 can take the supplied power and turn it into 820 screaming lumens, while still being smaller than a typical Mag light. Its amazing output makes it perfect for just about any outdoor task you can throw at it. If you need less light but a long run time, the TK35 can do that too. At 109 lumens on medium, which is still very bright, this light will run for 16 hours.
Ridiculous brightness and versatility makes the TK35 one of my personal favorites, and the price is just icing on the cake. Since you can’t see it in person, watch the video below. It won’t take long for you to understand what makes this such a great flashlight.
An EDC (every day carry) flashlight should be compact, durable, and most importantly, bright. The Sunwayman C10A fits that role perfectly.
What good does a flashlight do you if you never have it on you? That is where size comes into play. The C10A is small enough to comfortably slip into a pocket and light enough to forget it’s there. Sunwayman is synonymous with quality which means this light will likely outlast the user. Using a single AA battery pushing a Cree R5 LED, the C10A is able to crank out a very respectable 140 lumens on high, which is more than enough for most situations. Three lower output modes allow you to dial in the exact amount of light needed at the time, while also conserving battery life.
Small size and big output makes this offering from Sunwayman perfect for the role it was meant to play. As an EDC flashlight, the C10A ranks among the best money can buy.
The Sunwayman M20A is one of those lights that is just good to have around. It takes batteries that are very common and inexpensive, while also having the power and versatility to serve most every lighting need.
The M20A’s Cree R-5 LED puts out an amazing 220 lumens on high using AA batteries. The run time on the max brightness setting is 2.5 hours, which is very good considering AA batteries weren’t designed for this kind of high output use. Using rechargeable AA batteries will increase said run time even more. The M20A has 3 other output modes, each less demanding of the battery than the last. The low output modes allow you to use your light for hours on end without having to worry about your batteries dying. Sunwayman also equipped the M20A with a rotatory ring that is used for selecting the output mode. Being able to use the rotary ring means you won’t have to memorize any complicated sequence just to use your light; a simple turn of the ring is all it takes to cycle through each of the M20A’s 4 output modes.
Sunwayman is known for quality in manufacturing. Attention to quality control not only makes a reliable tool, but also an attractive one. You’ll be proud to show this one off.
