Thrunite TC20 - XHP70 - 3800lm

Breaking news Smile

ThruNite TC20 3800 Lumen Flashlight
-Turbo (3800 lumen; 130 minutes)
-High (1800 lumen; 145 minutes)
Peak Beam Intensity: 25580 cd. (max).
Max beam distance: 320m (max).
http://www.thrunite.com/thrunite-tc20-3800-lumen-flashlight/

Clearly not a thrower, it should be compared to the floody acebeam EC50, Olight R50 or Fenix PD40R (Also Klarus G20)
But I see 3 advantages already :
- Thrunite make the best neutral white
- they make very decent heat management : 1800 lumens without stepdown ?
- The price is quite agressive (NOW 20% OFF with code TC20)

This is most likely the best 26650 flashlight for flood.

Finally. I was waiting some time now for them to release this light (not that I knew they were actually going to). Dream mode spacing too with good low and moonlight!

(P.S. they are using 70.2 emitter)

I ordered one in neutral white. Price came out to $71.96 delivered using the discount code. Should be an awesome flashlight.

I think so too.
Compared to the emisar D4 or the DQG tiny 26650, it should handle heat a lot better, keeping the high more for more than 2 min for sure
I’m very eager to see a confirmation of that

320 lumens to 1800, I think they missed a step there. Pun intended.

Description also says infinity low to high, so which is it?

I’ll let you know when I get mine. BTW, I have a D4 to compare it to.

I ordered one as well. I love my Acebeam EC50 gen ii and this is pretty much what I want the ec50 to be if I could mod it. I’m sure the NW is not 3800 lumens but for a rechargeable light I’m fine with it. Sounds like it has narsil lol.

“this super bright light can operate at the high mode of 1800 lumens”
kinda make you think it can hold 1800lm forever ?

Doing a google search, I’m surprised there doesn’t seem to be much interest so far other than the few guys in this thread.

With the discount. The price is very competitive.
Too bad they don’t ship to Australia

Well I stopped by to see if there was a thread after I noticed the email in my box this morning. So I’m sure there are plenty of others who will be doing the same.

Had to try it. I’m glad it’s not just a thrower. Looks like it should be a smaller, lumen monster. I’m not a fan of rubber covered ports, (they’re usually a weak spot), but hopefully Thrunite has made it quality. Hope it doesn’t have any teething problems like some manufacturers do with new releases.

Funny how U.S. customers only get the CW option as a lot of you folks prefer other tints. As for me, I’m a CW fan as long as it’s pure white with no green or blue.

It’s a nice price with the discount and free shipping.

it has the same throw (25kcd and 320m) and approx the same size as their all star TN4A
but 3x more lumens
so I guess it’s very wide/floody

It sounds like the same ramping UI as their TH20 headlamp. Strange that they list runtime at specific lumens. Also strange that high at 50% doesn’t get much more run time than turbo. But the price, size and likely performance probably make this one a winner. A pocketable wall of light. I too am curious about step down on high.

Correction: It’s not ramping. The light cycles through low/medium/high. If it can maintain 1,800 without step down this light is a hands down winner. If not, 320 is a long way down.

Please post your impressions when you get the light. I’m very interested in this one.

Will do. To be honest, my impressions will be basic. I just don’t have the patience to write detailed reviews.

Basic is fine. Real world impressions are great.

Mine arrived yesterday and it is DOA. Flashing purple light when I try to recharge internally (and yes, the plastic thing is removed). Doesn’t work with an Imalent 26650 or an Efest 26650 either

Well that’s disappointing. The specs have so much promise.

Yeah, depressing! I was wondering if this first batch might have some bugs like some 1st generations do.

I hesitated buying this light because I don’t care for built-in chargers mainly because of the rubber charging port covers which could become an issue with use.

I only own one light with a built-in charger and the charger was DOA upon arrival.

Still no word on the one I ordered.

Mine shipped today. Since it’s coming from New Jersey, I should have it in a day or two.

EDIT turns out that the battery tube was shipped installed the wrong way. Once I put the non anodized end towards the tail of the light, it worked fine. Nice and bright. UI is the same as the Thrunite TN4A
