Review: Coghlan’s LED Clip-On Headlight

A couple of weeks ago, I reviewed the 0.5 Watt Headlight by Coghlan’s.  This one isn’t as powerful, but is still enough to light the night for a whole summer’s worth of camp outs.

The Multi-Color LED Flashlight Review

What a long way?we have come, fire, torches, oil lanterns, and then the common everyday flashlights we all use. The flashlight to me is a neat human invention, a battery source running a bulb all mounted inside a portable casing so that you would never have to be stuck in the dark. The 21st century …

The MyLight Marklight Review

For as long as I can remember, I have been an avid reader. Even with repeated warnings from my mother to “use a better light or you’ll be sorry; you’re ruining your eyes”, I was never very particular about the light in the room; as long as I could make out the letters on a …
