"New" Thrunite T10?

The Thrunite T10 has been around for a while, but the old model was a simple 1xAA twisty. A few months ago, they came out with the T10S, which is quite different. I really liked the idea of the T10S, especially the option of using the tailcap switch or a twist of the head to change modes. Unfortunately, the high price and high weight has kept me away.

I just got an e-mail from Thrunite about their current TiS giveaway promotion, and while I was on their site I noticed a light I had not seen before – a T10. It has the same twisty/clicky interface, but an aluminum body (at half the weight) and a lower price (currently $29.95).

Has anyone else seen this yet? I’d love to hear more about it, but all I can find on the forums or the interwebz is the old T10 twisty.

Here’s a link if anyone else wants to take a look at it:

Here are all the new Thrunite T10 flashlights at HKEquipment.

I think no one has a review yet because of how new the T10 is. Maybe there will be some in a few weeks.

They basically just released the T10S in aluminum and titanium and called it the T10 and the T10T. The new T10 doesn’t have anything to do with the old T10 which is now called the Saber. Whatever they call them, the new models look nice. I have the T10S and I’m a big fan, so I’ll be getting the T10T soon. But the T10[A] looks like a solid deal at 30 bucks.

Below you can see the old T10.

the new line of T10’s are:

T10T: titanium
T10S: stainless steel
T10: aluminum

same components, different body materials.

I was aware of the SS version but had no idea there was a Al and Ti versions. I’ll have to give a better look into the Al version.

Thanks for the heads up!!!

They just released the T10 and T10T a week or so ago.

An off topic question where can I buy the L10? I’ve seen it somewhere but they asked $15 for postage. Is there any from China/HK? I contacted Supbeam which I think is the OEM of L10 but they still haven’t replied to my email.

I am going to assume you mean the L3 L10. I believe the two sites that stock them is illumination supply, and sbflashlights

I would be interested to know the parent company, as I can’t find anything on L3

Thanks! I was just wondering how the T10S looks next to a L3 L10 and a D25A (that is a D25A Ti, right?).

The Thrunite product pictures make the T10S look kind of huge compared to those two, but maybe their pictures simply showed people with small hands.

If I understand correctly, the L3 L10 is actually made by Supbeam, who has their own L10 with slightly different specs (moon/med/high/strobe instead of moon/low/med/high, XP-G instead of XP-G2 or Nichia 219). I think the only way to get the L3 version is to special-order them in bulk, and only two stores have done so, and they’re both based in the US so shipping costs more.
