Thanks for posting this. I am think about grabing another one and swap the emitter to 219B 4000- 4500k. Love the rosy tone of old 348. So sad that they do not have it anymore.

Got my CWs today, not bad at all. The beam’s a bit fried-eggy, meaning the spill’s rather cool-blue, but the hotspot is quite neutral, even a smidge warm of neutral. Not a hint of green on either of them.

Can’t believe I’d ever hear myself saying it, but I think I like the “CW” better’n the NW.

Either one would probably be killer with a TIR lens vs reflector, though. Better color-mixing.

 

And a little more “testing” (if you could call it that) while I had ‘em out…

Both reset to lowest after 6-chimpanzee off-then-on. Up to 5-chimpanzee it would go to the next mode, but at 6-chimpanzee it would reset to lowest.

I have both CW and NW and I can confirm this. The CW beam is less tint shift than NW.
The color is actually more consistent and brighter. Kinda weird, I thought only I experience this or mine CW was off.

Kinda want to swap the TIR lens from my Olight i3e to Ti3.

Thanks for sharing this. I was going to go with NW, but decided CW would be better based on your feedback. Thumbs Up I’ve got 4 AAA flashlights already, but always good to have another backup. Also ordered a couple more as gifts. Do these come in the usual Thrunite thick cardboard box?

My only other Thrunite flashlight is the TH20. Really well made. Thrunite gives nice attention to detail with their products.

Better. The little Altoids tin, well, minus the hinge. Slip-on cardboard sleeve to keep the 2 halves from popping open, but yeah, the full tin, foamy thing to nestle the light itself, goodies-bag under, and papers over.

Class act all the way…

I had ordered a bunch of T1s from Thrunite years ago to give as gifts so I was curious and ordered a CW and a NW Ti3 v2 to check them out. The NW was as I expected, warm with a bit of yellow and orange, but my sample of CW was a bit warm and greenish and not neutral. Not terrible but tint lottery this time was not the best.

Woo-hoo! Ordered on Friday, delivered on Sunday?

Didn’t know USPS made Sunday deliveries.

Anyway, it is indeed a class act. Box, et al!
Thanks, to OP for the freebie! Thumbs Up Beer

Ok ..I'm old so I remember the original thrunite ti  two mode crusher in colors . They made both low high  and ..firefly /high models .

 They were $5 back then and still are great lights . I'd looked at these lights over the years and always thought I wanted  the real titanium version of this light . Bought a bunch back in 2011 ..bought a bunch today. 

  Thanks thrunite   /  Great company ..Great lights ..Great deal .

Received second light today.
I have seen the offer and ignored it as the lumen was low. After seeing multiple message on this thread, I give it a try. This light changed my opinion about lumen.

My third keychain order is Wuben K349 in Amazon for $8.53 including tax in CA. It comes with 14500 battery.

Bad:

  • XPG2 (NW) is hideous
  • Clip impossibly tight to get on
  • Emitter not centered
  • Sharp edges on the tail
  • Threads are loud/dry

Good:

  • Short for AAA reflector
  • Cheap
  • Not glued
  • Comes with split ring
  • Drop ships from Amazon stock

Neutral:

  • L-M-H-L-M-H-Strobe
  • AR coated lens (probably bad tbh)
  • The middle mode might be regulated (good if true), high definitely isn’t

Any light I’ll be carrying around or at least using fairly regularly, I’ll scrub the threads clean (remove O-rings, too), all the way with solvent, just to get out any grit, then slather on some fresh lube.

Lights that are nicely lubricated right out of the box might even have nicely lubed grit suspended in the lube.

 

And at least strobe is nicely hidden away. Really gotta be determined to get to it. LOL

Strobe can be useful. If you’re at an event with friends & get separated, turn on strobe and point slightly upward to avoid flashing in people’s eyes. Friends who are looking will easily spot you. I’ve done this a number of times.

Thanks again for your feedback on the CW vs. NW. I went with CW (got 2) and the tint is quite decent. Feels like it’s on the warmer side of cool (if that makes any sense). The machining and anodizing of the comparative Jetbeam Jet-U is better, but for about half price, you can’t beat the Ti3 V2.

The NW looked bad on a white wall and the CW was much better. THEN I walked outside… the NW made nature look much better and the tree trunks were easier to ID. So, it depends upon where you (or those you give it to) live and will use it. City, go CW… Country, NW gets my vote. Nice little light.

Curious if you order multiples, is postage charged (and delivered ) individually?

Tried ordering one of each in one order. No go on that.

Perhaps I answered my own question?

Gotta get a NW, for comparison.

The Jetbeam Jet-U has a much nicer beam, as well, because of the TIR; a very nice evenly lit circle.

You can order multiples, at least I did. But you still pay shipping for each even though they come in a single package.

Forget the word “free”. Think of it as, “6bux each delivered to your door in like 2-3 days”.

Definitely agree. The TIR does a wonderful job of homogenizing the beam. Range would be a little shorter, but for a personal mini EDC, throw isn’t the objective. The Jet-U has a wonderfully small profile. And the very dark brown anodizing is terrific.

Big Smile Additional 5% discount code – THRUNITE

The original Thrunite Ti was what got me introduced to modern flashlights and BLF as well. I think they were offering it for $5 that time. Ordered one CW with absolutely no need of a new light!

Just got the light in CW. It’s good, and I appreciate different levels on a small light.

There are really sharp corners on the feature used to hold the keychain ring. I think that may get to be a problem. It’d be uncomfortable in the pocket. It’s actually so sharp it’s uncomfortable on the hand.


sharp!

Unno, maybe without the keyring in there it’d end up poking you in all the wrong places, but with a ring in there, I don’t think anything would get close enough to the pointy part, would it?

If you carry it in your pocket with other things, you know the anodizing will wear.  Might as well file that area down (round the edges) to your liking.  It will feel better now and then the rest of the light will catch up later Facepalm
