Fenix PD35 V3.0 EDC Flashlight - 1700 Lumens

I've been a Fenix user for a while now and I've had a fair number of lights come across the bench and many of them I've kept around. I'm an equal opportunity user, however. I've got a few O-Lights in my collection as well as a Surefire. All that being said, Fenix hits the market with a lot of good stuff going on. They have some high-quality products at price points that don't break the bank. They don't sit and bask in their success and just leave things alone. They revisit lights as technology improves and make tweaks to bring us updated versions that have more features - often in the way of lumen output - and at times, battery technology as well.

Today we will be looking at the PD35 V3.0. We looked at V1 back in April of 2020 and we'll do a bit of a comparison as we refer to that review occasionally and let you know what has changed up and what to expect from this 1700 lumen light.



Fenix E12 V2.0 AA EDC Flashlight

We're back and bringing you another piece of illumination from Fenix. This is the E12 V2.0 light that is all about your Every Day Carry. It uses a single "AA" battery and while it isn't as blinding as some of their other lights, the size and flexibility ensures that it is ready to go whenever and wherever. If you want a great light that will work day in and day out with a standard power option, make sure you check out the following evaluation as we take this for a spin and share our thoughts.

Fenix PD36 TAC – 3000 Lumen Tactical Flashlight

Today, we've got a look at the super bright PD36 TAC from Fenix. This light offers a few different modes with a dedicated mode selector switch as well as a rear tail-cap switch and a side button as well. It offers a lot in the way of brightness, run-time, durability and more. Make sure you stay tuned to read and see how it compares to other lights we've looked at recently!

Father's Day Gear and Gifts

With Father's day looming just days away, there is still time to get the man-of-the-house something awesome he'll remember and use. Let's face it, often we spend way more time pondering gift ideas for the ladies in our life - while the guys get left in the dust. This quick gear and gift guide may be leaning toward more of an outdoorsman, but there are some great ideas for everyone from the urban hero to the rural champion.

HydroBlu Versa Flow Light-Weight Water Filter - While you may not be the guy that spends time in the back-country or can live off the land, having clean, safe water wherever you go is something we often take for granted. HydroBlu has a entire series of products dedicated to filtering and purifying water to make it safe to drink. I do spend a bit of time in the amazing Canadian Rocky Mountains - as well as put in plenty of miles on a V-Twin Cruiser, and having clean water wherever I am is wonderful. You can attach an activated charcoal filter to further step up your drinking water game and with the standard 28-mm threaded ends, it screws onto many bottles and canteens to make filtering water a hands-free experience. Combined with the ability to put it in-line with your hydration pack, it really is a one-for-all water solution.

HyperX Product Showcase from CES 2021

HyperX has a couple of new product releases that look pretty sweet. Their Cloud II Wireless headset looks to be their flagship product that works on PC, Switch, Xbox and Playstation platforms. It has a decent mic and 7.1 virtual surround sound. Also, their Alloy Origins 60 keyboard looks really nifty - usability TBD.

Ooma Showcases 4G Home Phone at Pepcom / CES 2021

I'm an Ooma user and have performed several multi-line business installs. It's a great, affordable product but unlike traditional hard-line phone systems, when the power goes out - so does your phone - until now. They now have a 4G access point, battery unit and more to ensure your phone works all the time. It will switch from hardline to 4G when needed. Unlike some other VOIP systems, Ooma supports location-specific 911 as well.


D-Link CES 2021 Pepcom Announcement

With all the extra work and entertainment done at home through internet connections, having a good signal in every area of your home is more important that ever.
