Need help with a possible Thrunite TN40S bug/quirk

Hello – Received our first Thrunite TN40S and have a question regarding the UI.

Does this sequence produce the same results as I’m getting?

Step 1 – Single click switch to turn light ON (to any of the memory levels)
Step 2 – Double click to access Turbo
Step 3 – Hold switch to reduce output back to low level
Step 4 – Use light at low level for any period of time (seconds to several minutes)
Step 5 – Double click to access Turbo.

For me, step 5 takes my light into Strobe mode instead of Turbo mode.

I know the manual states Double click to turn to turbo from any mode. Another double click to get strobe but I assumed that the interim Step 3 would break that sequence and prevent the light from going into Strobe on the next double click.

Is this normal behavior? I’m hoping not because it drives me crazy.

If normal, is there a way to change this behavior? Can strobe be disabled?

Around our farm we’d like to use the light in low mode, then access Turbo when needed, then return to low.

Thank you for the help.

Wow.

I tried with my Thrunite Mini TN30 and it is exactly as you’ve described. Weird. But there is more.

Step 1 – Single click switch to turn light ON (to any of the memory levels)
Step 2 – Double click to access Turbo
Step 3 – Hold switch to reduce output back to low level
Step 4 – Use light at low level for any period of time (seconds to several minutes)
Step 5 – Double click will go to strobe.

Step 1 – Single click switch to turn light ON (to any of the memory levels)
Step 2 – Double click to access Turbo
Step 3 – Hold switch to reduce output back to low, then mid or high level
Step 4 – Use light at low level for any period of time (seconds to several minutes)
Step 5 – Double click will go to turbo.

Tiny bug I think. I don’t think you can change this…

What you could do is that if you went from low to turbo, and you want to go back again to low, then single click to off, and another single click to (memorised) low. Just a couple of tenths of seconds between consecutive clicks will make this happen instead of the light going to strobe.

Great find, thanks!

It stinks this is indeed a bug, but at least now we can at least toggle from medium/Turbo.

That’s how we’ve been getting around the bug. The downside is being left in the dark for that second every time you toggle.
