Nitefighter F40C

I’ll admit, my first reaction was laughter. This light looks to me like it fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. I try to begin every review with fresh eyes, but, with a new light from a company I had never heard of before, I was having a hard time moving past my initial impressions here.

Last time I was conscripted to review a bike light, it was January. Thankfully, the temperatures were well into the 40′s or 50′s F, even after dark. This time however, despite being late March when I started it, the temperatures have had highs of the low 30′s to even as bad as the upper teens. This definitely changes the dynamic of how much time is spent actually on wheels.

Any good flashlight enthusiast knows the benefits of an 18650 powered light. Their rechargeability and high capacity make them suitable for the majority of illumination tasks. What could be better? Sunwayman answers in a very simple manner, “How about 2 of them?”

Simplistic design is the staple of Lupine flashlights. The Betty TL is no exception to the rule. Their lights continue to impress electronically though.
