[4K Review] Thrunite TH01 Headlamp - 1500 lumens - issues

I’ve had this issue so many times now from lights using proprietary cells.

I have the Thrunite T1. The Thrunite protected cell that came with that light does not work in turbo. When I switch into turbo, it does get brighter for an instant, then drops back down to high. I use a Keeppower nonprotected cell and it works fine in turbo.

My Olight S1R and S2R both do it, and a few other lights.

Unprotected 18650’s are too short to work in the TH01.

I don’t like how Thrunite keep asking me to remove my review either. They’ve asked me to remove a thread off the Taschenlampe forum I didn’t even create!

That’s not encouraging. I just got my first Olight in July when Amazon put the S1R2 on sale. I discovered how much I like their magnetic charger design that I have purchased a few more of their lights and some of their charging stands.
You made me curious so I went and tested mine. One of them drops out of turbo after just a few seconds, but that is a new one, fresh out of the box, and the cell measures only 3.6V, so I suspect it will work fine after I recharge the battery.
