New ThruNite Flashlight.

800 Lumens from two AA batteries ! They say. Nice if true.
This is the link that states 800 lumens from two AA batteries. Website is under construction:
http://thrunite-store.com/flashlights/electronic-cigarette/thrunite-new-...
If you take the above link. The page does state 800 lumens with two AA batteries. If you go to Thrunite.com it does not say that.

Maybe if you have 2 lights …. 8)

Looks interesting!

Link no longer mentions 800 Lumens that I can find but some of the specs make no sense. Turbo 80 minutes @ 480 Lumens and High is 230 Lumens for 90 Minutes??? Only happen if Turbo steps down to High after a very few minutes but is timed as still in Turbo mode. If there is a 800 Lumens mode it must be using a single 14500 high current battery and for a very short time based on the light’s size and mass. No 14500 outputs are listed, just a note that two 14500 batteries are not allowed. Battery input is listed too as .9V to 5 V but no normal battery combination is going to be near 5 volts unless you add two more AA extension tubes and run four NiMH cells. Make for a very long and skinny light.

The Moonlight level of 0.04 Lumens seems excessively low too. More a to see the light mode than to see by the light emitted.

Correction: The 800 Lumens is noted below the price but not in the Product Information area. Noted as with two AA batteries, presumably not alkaline cells.

Again I wonder, 800 Lumens for how long due to heat build up. No way to tell as IMO specifications are too incomplete.

Many of the Thrunite lights use a 0.04 lumen moonlight. I find it surprisingly useful for nighttime bathroom visits without disturbing anyone.

Woody;

I suspect then that it may well be brighter than listed as at very low Lumens small circuit variations can have a large effect I understand.

Possibly. In fact the TN12 (2011 model) has a low of 0.09lm (wow, twice as bright Wink ).

My Zebralight lows (SC600W is the same, 0.09lm; SC52 0.01lm, would you believe) all look pretty similar.

400lm on 1xAA and 650lm on 2xaa are still great results. That’s over 100lm more than previuos 1xAA “champion” (Zebralight SC52).

400 Thrunite lumens and 650 thrunite lumens…. ok, but those are not (I think) the lumens that I know about brands like Fenix ​​or Eagletac….other words are not 400 lumens or 650 lumens.

Thosde are tested lumens, different than Thrunite claims (400/650lm vs 480/480lm). Still great results.

1st: i am banned there for lifetime and the owner doesn´t “like” me Wink – so i will not post screenshots or quote the article…

there is a table (first one – RED “Neutron 2A “) where the light was meassured with 1 14500 putting 785 Lumens Wink

does this google translate link work for you?

Yes, but are ANSI Lumens? people offer their measurements, I want to know which device offers the same for other popular flashlights. I see some reviews with data measuring people, but they are not real,…. are the data that his equipments offers to him… Dou you really think that Thrunite has a 1xAA with 400 lumens (with NimH)?.

I’ve recently boutght a Olight ST25 woW (I thought)!!! 550 lumens with 2xaa…. but really perhaps 400-450 about 10-15 seconds and downnnnnn fassst… Brands are playing with us …

The 2C looks more interesting to me. It’s like an S10/S20 clone. I wish they kept the magnet and added a location beacon.

I would have bought afew if it had a forward tail clicky and side switch like the TN12, an extention tube and a forward clicky cap or reverse as an option would be good option IMHO. It would be enable the use of 3 X AA NIMH for extented runtimes, doubt it will happen but what the hey i’ll throw the idea out there and see if it sticks.

With abit of tweeking this light could lego together to meet many needs. I’ll pass and stick to my venerable LD25’s oldie bot a goodie. Thanks for the pointer 264.

480 Lumens it says in the specs. the 800 in the seller ad is likely a typo or “another” type of lumens.

nope, the 800 lumens is from a 14500

Actually the originally linked to page says 800 Lumens with the extension tube used which I presume means two AA NiMh batteries. Statement cut and pasted below. Based on voltage and using a high current 14500 presumably it can also do the high output but the linked to page does not actually say so.

Max 800 Lumen with Extension Tube

Are selfbuilt’s results believable for you? If so, here they are:
1xAA NiMH – 460 lumens
2xAA – 720 lumens
1×14500 – 810 lumens
Plus nice regulation (with Ni-MH, non-rechargeables can’t provide enough current) and excellent runtime.

I love the increased output, but besides that, I much prefer the Olight S10/S15/S20 design.

Thanks for the review Selfbuilt. The Neutron 2A is just as bright as some single 18650 lights of old. Smile

very surprised to see a review by Selfbuilt on such a new offering. The numbers are rather amazing to me! How are manufacturers ‘suddenly’ getting such output from a AA cell. The Armtek is another. I mean wasn’t ~120 lumens the max output on most 1 AA lights? So, what’s happened. Have they been playing down all these years? Or is just the emitter? Very attractive offering to me. I requested HKE to carry it and he said he would get them.

I believe most manufacturers of AA lights have been keeping output constrained to avoid complaints from those running alkaleaks.  Thrunite and Armytek have seen fit to release high powered drivers that really necessitate good NiMH cells.  Let's hope a few others start following suit!

BTW.... The output on these new AA series lights from Thrunite looks like walking all over the current Armytek offerings.  Selfbuilt is testing OTF whereas Armytek is quoting LED lumens.  BIG difference!

Yes, of course Selfbuilt is believable for me ( but many of his values for AA flashlights, I speak of aa flashlights because I have dozens, are slightly overrated). Wink
Nonetheless, it’s awesome, definitely I will buy a thrunite 2A.

I didn’t even get all the way through Selfbuilts review before I ordered one!The high output on 1 NiMh is great, but the mode spacing and flat runtime graphs are what really sold me.This thing is brighter on 1 NiMh than my other 1aa sized lights are on a 14500, yet it still has good low modes with either chemistry.Now I just have to wait for it to make it across the country.
