I’ve always meant to get some of these cable management fasteners anyways, because they work so great for cable management where I just might have the need to have to move the cables, or add something, or remove something from the setup. I’ve used zip-ties before, but any time I needed to change something, I’d have to clip it off and get a new one out – I know I know – not a big deal, but every little extra thing adds up!
This pack of velcro fasteners fetches a price around $8, but you get 50 of them. The fuzzy side is really soft, and the hook side is actually almost completely smooth! The eye for the strap to go through to fasten to itself is plenty big to pull it through without it fastening on itself before you’re ready.
Velcro can sometimes be so incredibly strong that it’s almost a nuisance to rip it apart, but this stuff actually peels apart without a whole heap of effort while hanging onto itself really well at the same time. When you’re ready to pull it off, it’s doable, but they do require you to initiate the detachment process.
I plan on buying these again as I have cable messes in more places than I’d like!
I’ve always been pretty skeptical about the lumens companies print on their flashlights – but this one just might be accurate. There isn’t really an official standardized test method for measuring lumens, so it probably won’t accurately match another company’s claim of lumens. Judging the tight beam of this light, I think they actually are hitting pretty close to the mark. Compared to other high brightness single LED lights, this one fares very well and leans on the brighter side of life.
The Revtronic F30B comes with a single 18650 and a charger. The battery I received was reading absolutely no voltage – but after a full day of charging, and a full day of sitting, it was holding its full charge.
Doing a comparison of measured lux from this and a couple other “high power” led torches I have, this one measured the highest by far, due mostly to the much tighter beam. This torch has a very deep reflector which gives a much further throw of light. It has 5 modes, High, medium, low power, SOS, and strobe. The torch comes apart into 4 main pieces: the end cap or button, battery compartment, LED module, and lens cap. The module measures 1.5″ diameter and 1.5″ deep. Each connection has an o-ring and some grease on the threads for waterproofing.
Overall, this torch is a good very bright LED flashlight that also has great potential for modding (if you’re into that sort of thing).
