I could use a lesson in forums and search functions! I am a little rusty….
any chance they happen to be all on one thread in here somewhere?
When I use the search box in the left corner it searches google…. need to find the search forum box in here somewhere. Prob need a flashlight to find that one.. maybe even a search light — hardy hardy har har Wink Wink

@ Andrew—Amanda, I just recommend searching for stuff outside of BLF’s “search engine” since it’s not exactly very good.

My very own high current Beryllium Copper springs Gen 3:

Wow lucky I caught this thread when I did, I haven’t been super active lately lol.

Here’s a very nice thread with BLF members and their channels:
https://budgetlightforum.com/node/52669

Another thread where people list their favorite reviewers:
https://budgetlightforum.com/node/67539



Here are some of my personal favorite video reviewers on YouTube:

LiquidRetro: Clear and informative reviews of many different lights, runtime data and good footage – My go to reviewer alongside Zeroair

UrbanSurvivor: Great beamshots and comparisons of lots of different lights, with good video quality and editing. He doesn’t get mentioned as much in enthusiast circles but it’s really great for a lot of the more general brands.

MrBazReviews: Not strictly a flashlight channel, but has reviewed lots of lights and has great video quality and lots of detail

PixelPoisonFlashlights: Literally only four videos but excellent production quality

Flashlight Enthusiast: Lots of hobbyist flashlights, detailed reviews with great technical measurements and runtime tests

I also occassionally watch Jon Gadget and Chrispy Things, neither are dedicated to lights or particularly technical but they have good video quality.

Piercing the Darkness and Lumen Max are great channels that have helped me decide on purchases before.

This channel (IDK the name it’s Chinese) showcases some cool lights too.

There are more but that’s what I’ve watched most recently anyway. I find just looking for “Flashlight Reviews” or “Best flashlights” or whatever in YouTube doesn’t yield much of anything valuable unfortuately, it’s easier to find channels that you like and see the other channels they’ve linked in turn on their pages.

It will take some time but just scanning the threads in the review subforums can get you some results:

I forgot about LuxWad. I really enjoy your videos when you make them. I’d say you are one of the premier reviewers with the combination of voice over, videography and technical content. Please make more videos for us!

Shout out to Rusty Joe for featuring the R40!

I was able to help him out via out LIVE chat so he could verify it was the version he wanted (not the XP)
Just a reminder I’d love to hear from any of the BFLers via chat. I do weird stuff like open boxes, take videos and pics. Ask my coworkers and boss what any of this all means, and even talk about dogs on the chat! So come on down!

I much prefer to read reviews, but Weerapat Kiatdumrong channel does some great beamshot comparisons.
