New ThruNite TN31 XM-L2

Thanks for coming to look at my items that I have for sale!

  • All prices include the cost of shipping and are shipped within 2-3 business days.
  • Packages are sent out via USPS Priority.
  • Returns accepted if the light is still in brand new condition and within 7 days of receiving.
  • I will take the utmost care when packaging these items to makes sure they arrive in original condition.
  • Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions or if you would like to order multiple flashlights.
  • Discounts are available if you order at least two flashlights.

I am currently starting my own business selling flashlights online and locally. I am in the process of creating a website and contacting manufacturers.

This is my first order from ThruNite and I am super impressed with the quality of their flashlights. I did some lux readings and ceiling bounce tests this weekend comparing all of my lights. The TN31 was miles ahead of my throwers.

Prices:
TN31 XM-L2 U2 1C (1376 lumens)- $135     (SOLD OUT)
TN31 XM-L U2 (1147 lumens)- $115           (SOLD OUT)

*TN30 XM-L2 U2 1C (3338 lumens)- $180     (*SOLD OUT)
*TN30 XM-L U2 (3000 lumens)- $140           (*SOLD OUT)
*No longer being produced

I also have them listed on eBay if you would like to buy them there instead. (http://www.ebay.com/sch/joe_325/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trks... )

(PS: Sorry for the terrible image quality.)

Thanks! They are far from professional photos though.

These lights are insane, I think I am going to have a hard time buying any other lights now. I'm not trying to be a salesman but the amount of light these put out is jaw dropping.

Joe, best of luck with this!

And now my original thought… “ please, dear god, make it stop…!”

Can I not go through an entire day without having to buy one more light that I really, really want?!

Did I forget NEED?, I NEED one of these!

Thanks a lot.Smile

When I get the website up and running I will have more of ThruNites product line.

I think everyone "needs" to try one of these lights. The TN30 and TN31 are in my top 5 favorite lights.

Yep, awesome lights indeed. The only thing the TN31 could do with is a diffuser for close proximity work.

I know it’s designed to be a S&R light but it would be nice to be able to walk the dog and use some spill without getting blinded from the intense spot.

I’m hoping they manufacture one as only the Catapult has them available at the moment as far as I can tell.

Are they guaranteed "flicker free"? I've had two one old and new version both suffer from the flickering on certain levels.

I made my own well one at least. The wife works for a local charity that specialises in Arts and Crafts. She brought me home some white acrylic sheet with a perfect tint.

I cut out the correct diameter circle and glued Neoprene to the sides so it just pops over the bezel. It works flawlessly for diffusing with not much light output loss.

TN30 done, TN31 still to do Big Smile

Hi JOE

How is the New TN31 (XM-L2 1376 lumen) beam profile? Exactly same like old TN31 but brighter, any “beam ring” ?

Does beam tint appeared in pure white, no yellowish/greenish/blueish?

Thank you.

Thanks a lot, I plan to make another order but I think ThruNite may raise their prices.

The XM-L2 is very similar to the XM-L version. The color temperature is pretty much pure white. The beam has a smooth spill that leads into a well defined center hotspot and it doesn't have any rings.

Some people say that some TN31s and TN30s have a green tint to them but I haven't noticed it on the lights I have. I'm fairly picky when it comes to color temperature of flashlights and I have no problem with the TN31.

Prices reduced on remaining U2 versions.

I am also offering a complete polish/tightening of the carrier and headplate for an additional $5. This not only eliminates flickering, it also increases overall light output by over 5%.

Are these lights glued shut or can the reflectors be removed to access the emitter?

On my personal ones I can access the tailcap for sure. There was loctite on the tailcap threads but it was still easy to remove. I have GITD tailcaps on my TN31 and my TN30.

I'll have to check when I get back home to see if I can get to the reflector. My guess is that I will be able too.
