RovyVon E8 Review

RovyVon E8 Video Transcript:

General thoughts after a week of usage/size comparison/practicality/interesting things:
β€’ So some of you may have seen my review of the E1 – it’s one of my favorite keychain lights. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better… At first glance, the E8 looks almost identical to the E1, but it has special features that’ll want to check out – namely the set of three auxiliary LEDs on the side. RovyVon was kind enough to send me a free sample of the S8 for me to review in this video.
β€’ What you get in the box – the light itself, two keychain rings – one is thicker, a reversible clip, a spare charging port gasket, instruction manual.
β€’ Comparison with the E1 and A8.

Overall Construction, LED, lens, bezel and reflector
β€’ RovyVon makes some of the best quality keychain lights around – the E8 is no exception. The body is of polyamide and is machined well, with no rough spots or inconsistencies. I like how you can see through my model – there is a glow-in-the-dark section in the inner middle part of the flashlight that joins onto the head, making it easy to see in the dark. The head is made of aluminum for heatsinking thankfully.
β€’ Dual TIR lenses with 2x6500K SST-20 emitters. You can also get these in 4000K (warm white). The bezel is not raised and the lens sits flush.
β€’ Side LEDs: 1x 365nm UV LED, 1x 625nm red LED, 1x 4000K warm white LED.
β€’ One of the coolest features of this light is that you can add your own AAA in there as a backup battery. Undo the latch on the head and swivel to install.

UI – modes
β€’ The top button operates the two main LEDs on the head. Unlock/lock with 4 quick presses. Press once – moonlight. Double press to go into L-M-H. Hold for a momentary high. Triple press to switch batteries.
β€’ The bottom button activates auxiliary LEDs. One press goes to white. Another press to cycle L-H. Double press for red. Press again to cycle flashing. Triple press for UV.

Performance – total output, beam profile, longevity, practicality
β€’ CCT, CRI, Ceiling bounce test
β€’ Beam profile – Surprisingly throw with a higher concentration of light in the center. Usable spill on higher modes.

β€’ Nonmetal body – would dissipate heat much better with a metal body but also be potentially uncomfortable to hold. There is a titanium version, the E4 available too.
β€’ Slight annoyance – the buttons get jammed if you press them on the edges. This is pretty rare though and you just press them again and they become ‘unstuck’
β€’ Pricier than other keychain lights but this one is made to last and has a 2-year warranty.

β€’ I was pretty impressed with the E1, but the E8 takes the prize. The auxiliary LEDs were something I liked on the A8 but the battery capacity was too low for me to take seriously as an EDC. The A8 is just as bright as some of my 14500 flashlights and half the size. The ability to add another primary cell is my favorite function and I wonder why no one else does it.
