FS Thrunite Ti3 modded to High CRI

sorry whats conus shipping

conus = CONtinentalUnitedStates

I will ship to Canada if you pay shipping.

PM me your address and I will generate a price quote if interested. I will have to fill out a customs form, you will be responsible for any import tax.

I dont know if Canada charges a tax, based on declared value, like England does. We dont have customs fees in USA.


fwiw, I have one light left to mod with an LED swap,
options upon request, include:

219b 4500k 9080
219b 3500k 9080

I strongly recommend these emitter and flashlight pairings. My favorite EDC is a Ti3 with 4500k 219b.

you have good taste :slight_smile:

sw45k is my daytime edc also

I also like the option to use warmer colors in the evening, on the nightstand…

Exactly this. As nice as 4500k sw45k is, I swap over to something 3500k or lower once I’m home for the evening.

added sw45k to first post

fwiw, I also have available some nice floody TiR as an option

pic is a link to more info


price drop to $40 plus shipping

all the lights are now floody, I installed TiR

you still can have the option to request a reflector instead of TiR

Looks like great nightstand lights. Just got 5 of these or I would have bought one of yours.
Buy with confidence. Great reputation.

added a warm floody, #4 in first post

Did you mean to go below $40 on your post today? It looks like prices on OP are same as your 12/6 post.

The lights are tempting for sure.

thanks for helping me reduce chaos and confusion

the price is $40 plus ship

or if you would like to mod your own, Im happy to share info… here are some highlights:

The pill unscrews easily:

remove centering ring:

unsolder the red and black wires

and remove LED Star

reflow a new LED:


They make nice beams w stock reflector:

Pebbled TiR option , thanks to moderator007 sharing his research:

really fun floody beam upgrade:

SOLD #3. Thrunite Ti3 with High CRI 219b 4500k 9080 sw45k

I’d like to have a 3500k led. If you can let me know which would throw better (not expecting 465000kcd from this thing), should i go with reflector, tir etc.? Send me PayPaI info again. I also have a c8 that could use some help.

thanks for your interest

imo the most throwy option would be

reflector and 219b

price is $40, my paypal is jon_slider at yahoo,
please use goods and services, I pay fees and postage

random thoughts:

I have two 3500k options:
219b 3500k 9080 and
LH351d 3500k 9050

wider hotspot from LH351d is not as throwy as the smaller hotspot of the 219b

For throw, the reflector is king. The Pebbled TiR is designed for diffusion, it is NOT throwy at all, regardless what LED is behind it.

this is what I love the Pebbled TiR option for:
The Tir diffuses the hotspot almost complely, creating a diffussed beam similar to a McGizmo Mule beam, with a less extreme spread.

some thoughts about beam types, using McGizmo models for illustration, the first two are floody, a mule, and a sundrop aspheric:

The Tir Im using in the Ti3 is 25 degree beam angle, a mule is 180degree spread… To me the TiR beam angle spread is better, similar to the beam spread of a McGizmo Sundrop, without the ugly beam cutoff ring around the outside. The TiR beam is soft and diffused at the edges like a mule…

The beam from the TiR is Outstanding for indoor distances and arms length applications. I owe a large debt of gratitude to Moderator007 for sourcing this TiR. imo it creates a Grail beam for my aaa use, indoors.

pebbled Tir on left, reflector on right

hotspot from reflector is more suitable outdoors, it gives considerably more throw than the Pebbled TiR, more like a tiny McGizmo Haiku beam (reflector with tight hotspot):

I have no C8 experience, suggest you ask gunga or Vinh

I have some reservations about recommending a Ti3 for throwy applications, because the first and second modes are very low, it will seem that max throw use is going to require triple twisting. These lights are optimized for low light and indoor distance range use, pretty much the opposite end of the use spectrum from Throwy lights, that also tend to be high output. For example the LiIon powered aaa lights.

also, high cri reduces throw and lumens, and warm white reduces throw and lumens also… all that to say, Throw is not really something I would associate with these tiny AAA lights… but still, the reflector is much throwyer than the pebbled Tir, and the Nichia will have a tighter hotspot than the LH351d

for a budget High CRI Throwy AAA, I recommend the Sofirn C01S, that starts on Hi

I see the light. Payment sent

confirmed, and thank you
will update when shipped

proof of light :slight_smile:

Sent you a pm

Got everything. Thanks for the extras. I’m going to play with them a bit before I switch lenses. I think I’m going for a 2700k next time. It seems like the warmer I get, the warmer I want

Glad all arrived safely :+1:

fwiw, the 2700k is available in LH351d. It makes a very nice floody option, as the LED is larger. It is a good option for full dark adapted situations, such as a nightstand light.

otoh, the 3500k option you chose, is a favorite for a number of very experienced people, including archimedes, as a general EDC.

I like 3500k in the evening, as it is slightly cooler than my 3000k house lights. This makes the LED light seem slightly “whiter”, and makes the beam seem brighter.

no wrong choices, options for different ambient light environments vary, based on the brains adaptation.
