FlameStower Heat Charger

rated 1 of 5 stars The Flamestower’s technology is tried and true at this point in time, however, the product itself could use some design changes. With the Flamestower you will be able to charge most small electronic devices with the majority of backpacking and camp stoves on the market, as well as with a small camp fire. Due to the nature of the Flamestower’s design, it may become damaged but still operable(for how long?) during normal use. As much as I wanted to like this product, I do not think I could recommend… Full review

Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Solar Kit

rated 3 of 5 stars It's great as a solar charger. It's aesthetically pleasing and comes in a pretty box. Best used when carrying it in a car, RV, cycling pack, or very short hikes. I have a couple portable solar chargers including the Goal Zero 10 kit. Some photographers recommended it so I picked one up while it was on a closeout sale. Still, it's pricey compared to others with similar features. Solar panels wholesale are cheap, less than 50 cents a watt for the good ones. So for the price they're asking you'd think… Full review

BioLite KettleCharge

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A kettle with a built-in thermoelectric generator that can charge USB-powered devices off-grid. Heat water, get a charge. A superb option for emergency use during power outages and something to consider for multi-day basecamp expeditions, but likely too much weight to justify its presence on most backpacking trips. BioLite KettleCharge The BioLite KettleCharge is a flat, stainless steel kettle with an opening for filling or pouring from the kettle, and a plastic handle that rises about the top of… Full review

Malkoff Devices Hound Dog

rated 5 of 5 stars Extremely bright light with two functions — 1,000+ lumens and 70+ lumens. Roughly two hours on high with two 18650 batteries. I have not tested the low output time, since we use this as a backyard "let the dogs out" light. However, this gear would be invaluable for a night search operation. Highly recommended for those looking for a professional grade, rough use, super bright light. Not recommended for close work or enclosed areas. I purchased this light several months ago to light up my entire… Full review

Mammut X-Shot Headlamp

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Hard use headlamp that stands the test of time in all manner of conditions. Good for canoeing in dark conditions, close up work, and hiking. Recommended for those who are serious about night movement. I purchased this over six years ago in Alaska for use while duck hunting. Since then, it's been used lots of times in all types of weather (wet, cold, wet and cold, hot, you name it!). It has decent battery life and throws a great spot -— so good in fact that you can use it for night / early morning… Full review

Petzl TacTikka XP

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought it for its tiny size, partial power settings, wide and narrow beams. I've had it for several years now. Every summer I spend three or more months in tents, and use it at least half an hour every single day. Batteries last so long that I forget whether I have changed them that season or the previous one. In 2015, this Tikka XP is now "the old model", but still delivering as the first day. A great flashlight that I can also use as headlamp 50% of the time. I walk around mostly during the day,… Full review

NiteCore P12

rated 5 of 5 stars Light, bright,with a simple user interface, this light carries easily. A variety of accessories increases its versatility. The user interface is straightforward and quickly mastered. You can set the light to turn on at any of four levels. A strobe, blinking beacon, and SOS are readily available using a separate switch. The light is compact and reasonably light, although too heavy to appeal to ultralighters. The light uses either CR123s or an 18650 battery. Go to school and learn about 18650s; they… Full review

Princeton Tec Vizz

rated 1 of 5 stars Why do the batteries routinely go dead after just a few hours? The first Vizz I owned seemed to have an electrical short -- why else would the battery go dead so quickly? So I called Princeton Tec to report the problem and they graciously agreed to have me send it back to them. They soon sent me another -- and the life of the batteries is equally poor: maybe 2 hours of use, and now the red light indicating low battery life is flashing. The problem with the burn time negates any redeeming qualities… Full review

Princeton Tec Apex

rated 5 of 5 stars A great headlamp. Waterproof battery pack a key feature. A really good product. Got it for under $50 on Sierra Trading. Store without batteries to prevent leakage. Full review
