Despite my initial observations, I've been carrying the ThruNite on the job for a couple of weeks and I like it. I attached the pocket clip so it's not going to roll away. Five levels of brightness? That's really pretty nice. Full bright matches my 6P and illuminates the top of an aircraft tail. Level 3 is perfect indoors. The rechargeable battery rocks and seems to last longer than a pair of disposable 123As in the 6P. The ThruNite is skinnier so it fits in a pocket a little better, and it's lighter at 4.9 oz versus 5.35 for the 6P.
Surefire can certainly justify the 2x price for the 6P. It's a beefier light, it accepts filters and there's nothing on it that is going to fail in normal use. That mode button on the ThruNite is eventually going to break and I'm going to be peeved when it does. But it's a great light at $45. I just ordered a second one.
Light is still going strong. No issues after 2 years. They lowered thr price since I bought my two light. They are down to $39 each. Avery good price for what you get.
This review is for the ThruNite TN12 2016 XP-L Neutral White EDC LED Flashlight...
For the price this is the best deal going. It performs as good as lights costing twice as much.
Color Tint: I prefer neutral white (NW) and thus one is truly NW.
-I do not have a way to test actual lumens, but from my experience with other lights verified by those that do have the means to verify lumens, this light is definitely a +1000 lumen light.
-are well spaced from 2-5. 1 to level 2 jumps quite a bit due to level 1 being firefly mode. Firefly is truly a low level light that is very useful for getting up in the middle of the night for a munchy or latrine break. I have other lights with low level outputs that are brighter than they need to be. This one is just perfect when going from just woke up, to you are now in the bathroom.
-the beam throws a nice hot spot with a good deal of flood light. It makes searching an area much easier than lights which use a spotlight with minimal flood.
-the beam cannot be adjusted but thanks to the design of the reflectors, you get good center brightness and the flood covers your peripheral vision areas quite nicely.
-the quality of the metal is obviously very good. The knurling could be a bit more aggressive. I plan on putting non-skid tape on several contact spots
--Tail cap has flanges that protect the on/off button and also allow the flashlight to be stood on its end. The flanges also have slots for attaching lanyards/wrist straps if desired. The flashlight comes with one that I like.
NOTE: the tail cap appears to be the weakest link with this flashlight. I am comparing the TN12
against the Fenix PD35Tac. The TN12 rubber cover seems a little thinner and the button
not as robust. Not a deal breaker by any means. I am trusting the warranty to have my
back on this point.
--The threading on both ends of the body are well machined and thread smoothly. O-rings are snugly fitted.
--The lens material is very sturdy and should withstand very rough treatment
-I find the length of the light to be a perfect fit in MY hand. When gripped, the level change button is directly under my thumb.
-The ribbed areas are right where they need to be to feel comfortable and to provide additional grip
-I do not use the clip that came with the light. They tend to make flashlights uncomfortable to hold.
I read several reviews where the owners had trouble with the light build/defects. I will update this review if I have any troubles or discover more positives.
The old saying "you get what you pay for" does not apply as much these days. Many American products are over priced or crippled so you have to buy the next more expensive version. I am talking minor improvements, not evolutionary improvements. Many lights such as SureFire sell lights with only one level of brightness and have the nerve to charge as much as other lights having at least 3 levels of lighting. If I received value for the money I spend, I would buy more American products. I do not see the value for the dollar spent for many (not all) American products.
This light is in the quality and brightness levels as the Fenix PD35 TAC for almost half the price. I own the PD 35 Tac and like it, but would have bought the TN12 2016 had I discovered it first. This light does not have a tactical mode but most users do not need or use this mode.
Tough, durable flashlight with a rechargeable battery (18650) with an excellent selection of modes and excellent battery life.
I also have a Wowtac A1S flashlight light which uses the same LED and is nearly identical, but costs less, so here's my completely non-technical comparison:
1. Physically, they are damn near identical. The A1S comes with a special 18650 battery that has a charger built into it, reducing it's capacity to a 2600 mAh, according to its label, vs the 3400 mAh ORBTRONIC battery I'm running in the TN12.
2. The modes are different:
TN12 modes: 0.4, 11, 145, 370, 1050 lumens - 800 strobe.
A1S modes: 24, 140, 460, 1150 lumens - 1150 strobe
I much prefer the dim modes of the TN12 for subtle light outside at night. The A1S may claim 100 more lumens, but when both lights are on max setting with a fully charged battery, the TN12 is definitely brighter.
The tailcap switch on the first A1S had failed within 2 hours and had to be replaced. The TN12 has had no issues.
Overall, I prefer the TN12's modes, but the A1S is cheaper. Perhaps it was a fluke my first A1S failed, or maybe it won't last. We'll see.
Top reviews from other countries
Its 3rd (of 5) settings matches typical 2xAA flashlight maximum output with high and turbo in addition. Has the usual Thrunite well spaced outputs including Firefly (or moonlight) accessed via a no-nonsense (pay attention other brands) side-switch. Single click to cycle through the outputs starting with the memorised last used setting. A long press for strobe which is not memorised. Could not be easier. A forward-clicky tail-switch for momentary and on.
Torch, however, is excellent!
Tested it for a couple of weeks with my 2 year old and he threw it about the place. Still works fine. Feels good quality too.
Comes with a soft carry case and a string to dangle it with. I used an old string I had from a camera instead, which had a better loop for holding but otherwise this was a nice touch.
