    The weird thing is. The website of Thrunite says; To get max output; use 2* 18650. But the light itself can hold 1* 18650. You need 2* extension tubes to put 2* 18650 in it.
    In the package is only 1* extension tube. Where do I get another extension tube???

    ( according to qualityflashlights.eu this comes with in the package; Includes neck lanyard, belt holster, removable pocket clip and extension tube for the use of 3 CR123 batteries. )

    And no info of max brightness on one 18650 or 2x123a from what I can see. Hopefully this is just a short-lived oversight; if it wasn't Thrunite, I'd say the ad is almost deceptive, but I think they'll provide the rest of the info in time

    This thing behaves exactly like Scorpion V2 but does away with its fragile tailcap that I always found to be a liability.

    Definitely a GET.

    I just placed an order for it, and should have it in a few days. Expect a first impression review when I get it.

    Thanks from me too specimen. One thing, there is occasional disagreement between those translated pages and this thread... for example those pages claim the tn10 has the same overall length as tn11, I imagine the tn10 is shorter but not entirely certain

    TN11 is; 154mm(length)x41mm(bezel diameter)25.4mm(Body diameter)

    Just had contact with qualityflashlights.eu. The TN11 does come with ONE extension tube. If you want to use 2* 18650 batteries, you must buy one extra extension tube.

    Edit; a extra extension tube will cost €3,- (about; 4.08 U.S. dollars)

    Ok. Normally I want to read all the reviews/ or see video's before I order a light. But i couldn't wait for this one
    So Today I ordered one, plus an extra extension tube, so I can use 2* 18650 batteries for max power/output.

    Qualityflashlights.eu changed the info on there website;
    " Can be powered by 2 x CR123 or 1 x 18650 battery or 3 x CR123 (with included extension tube fitted). To achieve maximum output the supplied extension tube should be fitted allowing the use of 3 x CR123 cells. Max output for 10 minutes and then down to 85%." - "Max light output: 830lumens. When using 3 CR123 batteries."


    Thrunite says; "
    "Max light output:830lumens.When use 3 or 4 Cr123A or 2 18650 rechargeable batteries."

    So the question is; Can it handle 2* 18650? I assume that Thrunite knows his products best.

    Edit; Thrunite confirm it can take 2 18650

    The voltage of 3 CR123s is greater than that of 2 li-ions, so, yes, it can handle 2 18650s with 2 extensions so they fit. Another option is 2 18500s and one extension tube. Less runtime, though.

    Meh, I thought it runs at 830 lumen with 2 CR123 or an 18650. There are other lights as well with similar brightness using 3 or 4 cells.

    Anyway, how does it perform with 2 RCR123s?

    If you are using two RCR123s with 3.7V, expect it to have the same output as two 18650, albeit with greatly reduced runtime.

    I'm using it with 3 cr123's & the performance is amazing well worth the money.

    I would think so, yes. (I have one)

    Throw an 18650 in it, have CR123 (and/or 18650) as backup...should make a great duty light.

    Even on two cells or on a single 18650 this thing is bright


    It noticeably out performs my Eagletac T20C2 mkii XM-L T6, which is rated 580 ANSI. I'd wager the TN11 on a single 18650 is still 700+ lumens OTF, easy.

    I think it is - in the short version ( with 1*18650/2* cr123) is great for your belt. Gives plenty of light, you can easily switch from mode, not to heavy,
    and it can take a beating.

    I've dropped it a few times and it has stood up to the impact fine. However, the problem with a light of this size and weight is that, when you drop it, it will hit the ground hard, so YMMV.

    ~900 OTF lumens initially on all battery configurations. 750 ANSI lumens on both 1x18650 or 2xCR123A. The problem with using 1x18650 configuration is that the light has very little regulation. With 2xCR123A, however, you have at least of ten minutes of solid regulation.
