I’ve been using my TR-J12 and Tr-J18 for a while and I find both of them amazing. I used them both with my girlfriend for night walks in the countryside and I do think The J18 is clearly more powerfull but the J12 itself it’s a decent torch. I was really new to the power lights until I acquired these multi-emitter monsters. Frankly I’m quite happy with the results in full dark. However, I noticed both of them are more floodier than throwers. In fact, I’d say you are able to see what’s going on for 250-300 straight meters. Due to this fact, I’m interested in searching for a budget thrower. I’ve read some posts relating to the need of a single well-fed emitter to obtain a real thrower than several under-fed emitters. Either way, I plan to use the protected TF 26650’s I ordered along with the TR-J’s. What’s your opinion in that area? Would you recommend me a budget solution? I do prefer not to have any strobo,sos modes (I’m sick of them in the TR-J’s); just hi-med-low would work for me.
Thanks in advance and bye!
