Schrade SCHF 42D review and other things in the queue

I’m back after a long break, caused by the fact I just moved on another continent, presenting some gear that has piled up on me over the time waiting to be tested and reviewed.

First, I thought my Chinese Ultrafire Mini Cree torch was smallLarge small flashlight

Then, I bought an Olight S10. And considered it smallLarge small and smaller flashlights


But then, I got a Thrunite Ti3 🙂thrunite ti3 ultralight cree and olight s10 flashlight


Low price and good quality
Powerful for such a small flashlight
Decent lifetime
Removable pocket clip that can be used to attach the flashlight to a hat
Powered by a cheap and readily available AAA battery
Very small and lightweight
Three reasonably spaced out outputs
No buttons means you practically can’t occidentally switch it on
Waterproof (to a degree)

Rather complicated mode memory
Too well hidden strobe
Very yellow light that seems dimmer than is supposed to be
