Well, that’s great! Good on you for figuring it out!

Is the light overall seem quality built? Does the rubber cap over the charging port seem stout and quality?

It was a total fluke that I figured it out. Build quality is very good, typical for Thrunite in my experience. Rubber cap seals well but time will tell if it lasts. Charging rate was at least 1.5 amps via the usb port. Feels solid and works well. A little bit of battery rattle and the lens makes the same sound (tinking sound) as the MF02 when it is heating up. 5000mah battery included. Overall, very happy

It came and it works perfectly so far. I’ll put it through it paces later. I’m charging it now.

BTW, it comes with a lanyard, a belt pouch holster, 2 spare o-rings, a spare USB cover, and a spare rubber switch boot.

Edness, I thought the U.S. sales only were for the CW tint?

No big deal but I received an e-mail that states mine won’t arrive until next Friday the 19th.

Yeah, you’re correct. They do give you the choice of CW or NW.

I’m a CW guy so did any of you that have received yours order the CW? If you did, is the beam pure white? Any blue or green showing? Thanks.

The neutral white tint looks it’s best on high and turbo IMO. Lower modes don’t look as good when projected on a white wall. In real use, it’s fine. All in all, I’m very happy with my purchase.

I have NW on order to Canada. I like 5000-6500k but went with NW since a lot of my lights are CW. The fire fly mode is a great feature for indoor use. I just hope it can run on 1800 lm for a good amount of time.

I ran mine on turbo for 4 minutes and noticed very small lowering increments in output. That said, it didn’t go from 3800 lumens to 1800 lumens in one step like a lot of flashlights do.

From what I know Thrunite always tries to push output to the max temperature wise. It seems it should be pushing 1800 lumens continuously without much trouble, at least if you’re outside and holding the light in your hand.

Thanks for that. I was wondering if any of you that have received the CW version and what do you think?

I don’t care about outside color renditions or whatever temperatures as my older eyes love just pure white light. I know I’m in the minority but CW is what I like. Thanks.

If I had to do it again, I’d probably order a CW version.

Thanks for that honesty! Seems like a lot of folks here do not like CW but if you just want a light at it’s brightest and just want a light that lights the area with the brightest, pure white light, color rendition or color temperature be damned, CW is the way to go.

I don’t take professional photos and don’t care if I take photos day or night to show true colors. I just want a light to shine bright and white and clear and for that I like CW!

To each their own! Smile

There’s a difference between Cool whites though. I like a pure white CW too.
My Acebeam L16. That thing is like a blue laser LOL

I got mine today. Some initial findings and comparison to Acebeam EC50-II:

The TC20 is slightly heavier than the EC50 but due to the shorter length it kind of feels much more substantial. The design and shape also makes the head of the TC20 look much bigger even though there’s only a 2mm difference. The TC20 feels a lot like the TN42, except for the size, of course; a solid, quality build. No complaints about the EC50 either.
EC50 has anti-roll, TC20 does not.

Both fit my small(ish) hands very well but I feel the TC20 might slip out easily because being shorter there is less surface to hold on to, and the tailcap is the same diameter as the body. The groove between the body and the tailcap gives some extra grip. But the EC50 wins this one with its better body to tailcap ratio – it just feels a lot more secure in my hand.

The TC20 can be locked out by unscrewing the head a bit.
If the light is on when locking out, then tightening the head back on will turn it back on immediately without pressing the switch. That means you will get full mode memory! Firefly, turbo, and even strobe if you want.
The EC50 is locked out by unscrewing the tailcap, and will require pressing the switch to turn on after making electrical contact.
On both lights the normal single click mode memory only works on low, medium, and high.
UI is the same on both except for strobe (EC50 triple click, TC20 2x double click).
The switch on the TC20 is small, and feels slightly mushy and loose. EC50 has a much better switch in my opinion.

I have the NW version of the TC20, and it’s the normal story; a neutral hotspot, yellow corona, and purple spill.
I can’t make a fair comparison with my EC50 here, because it’s XHP70 4000K 90CRI.
The TC20 has a more pronounced hotspot.
Output seems to be close to the specs. I don’t have a lux meter yet, but I compared it to my other lights that have been measured.

Interesting RT! I don’t like that about the mushy switch. Mushy switches irritate me.

By the way, anyone still waiting for theirs? I just got an e-mail saying mine was just shipped after all this time.

The switch is basically a miniature version of the TN42 switch.
The TN42 switch has no extra movement, just a tight click, and nothing else. The TC20 switch has a bit of pre-travel before it clicks. Pressing against a spring is bound to cause some mushyness. The actual click feels pretty much the same as on TN42. Snappy clicks feel ok.
I might just be overly critical? But the EC50, Zebralight, and Emisar have such great switches, it’s hard to be happy with even the smallest imperfections.

I totally agree on the Emisar switch. I have a D1 and the switch action is really nice. In fact the whole light is superb.

Received my TC20 a few days ago, neutral white emitter. I like everything about the light; however, I am not a big fan of the neutral tint as there is some tint shift from the creamy white hot spot to a yellowish corona. If anybody bought the cool white and is looking for the neutral, I would be willing to trade. Otherwise I might sell this light, PM me if you are interested.

Thrunite’s runtime is spot on. I ran it on high, 1800 lumen for 2hrs and 25mins on the dot. Was super hot so wear gloves fellas. Very very happy with this light. The beam pattern is perfect for multi-use. Similar to an S2+ pattern.

Does it drop output on that level?
