    Even if I really like Nitecore EA41w I don't like that as well moon mode and turbomode are included in the memory, despite these have a direct access. TN4A features the same UI as TN30mini(which I have) with moon mode and turbomode not included in the memory function, that's great. I think I will get a TN4A in neutral white version!
    I just placed an order for two TN4A in neutral white from Thrunite with 20% christmas coupon. It will be like a little brother to TN30(2016).

    My intention was to get one of each XP-L and XP-L Hi but the latter is out of stock and discontinued.

    Discontinued! too bad. Actually, I was just able to add the cool white to my cart on the Thrunite site. I guess just the NW Hi is out of stock. Did Thrunite tell you they were discontinuing this particular light?

    Yes, I mailed them and asked when Hi will be in stock again and got the answer that it's discontinued. I am not sure if Thrunite discontinued only the Hi option or both TN4A models, though. I saw that Hi is still available for some other parts of the world.
    The question is if Thrunite will release a successor or if they will exclude 4AA from the product line, I have not read any information about it.

    Yes, as LeanBurn said, the cool version is still available there for $50, but it does appear the NW version is no longer available.

    Glad I got this light when I did. ThruNite's line-up has dwindled a bit over the past few months...hopefully they have something in the works for the new year.

    junglestore dot ca still have TN4A HI.

    I received the TN4As earlier this week. It's kinda like a smaller version of TN30 mini. More comfortable in the hand and I very much like the switch and UI which is the same as with TN30mini. As with TN30 the tint is a bit greenish. The spill is very wide which can be a drawback or not depending on the situation or personal opinion. The beam profile is very similar to Fenix TK30 with a beefy hotspot, actually TN4A has very slightly wider spill and larger hotspot than TK30. Both of them have practically no corrona around the hotspot which I personally think is a small drawback. But the beam is smooth and without artifacts.

    TN4E compared to Nitecore EA41: personally I prefer the beam character of EA41 for most uses and it's more comfortable in the hand.
    The advantage of TN4A is the UI with firefly and turbomode not memorized like with EA41. I also like that when cycling through the levels it does not step up from mid to high but instead it first starts at low mode and then mid-high(like Zebralights). Both are great 4AA lights anyway.

    Has the carrier/spring spacing been adjusted in later versions?

    the EA41 100% is also one of the best 4xAA lights yet made. Despite actually only putting just over 700 lumens out the front the EA41 is indeed slimmer and lighter than the TN4A. EA41 of course has all NC's bells and whistles. BUT...they are not thermally regulated, they DO fall over 100 lumens SHORT of advertised claims and the small double switch UI is hard to find in the dark.

    EA41 beam profile is actually very good!

    EA41 fits into a coat pocket more easily.

    Unfortunately EA41 does not have a good track record of reliability.

    The TN4A UI is FAR easier to find in the dark and just use overall. The TN4A voltage indicator right in the center of the switch is perfect.

    I will say a very positive thing about BOTH the EA41 and TN4A-the L91 Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA cells 100% power both lights to their max potential. This is more noticed in the EA41 though. The L91's in the TN4A? Crank flat out until the very last electrical particle in those cells is depleted-3000mah

    Just got my TN4A NW XP-L today. First impressions, it's HEAVY, especially with batteries (bear in mind I'm used to smaller 1AA/2AA/3AAA lights). It feels like a solid chunk of metal. The build quality is incredible. I hope I never drop it and ding the case, or scratch it, since it looks so perfect. If it was about twice the length, it would make a great lightsaber handle prop.

    It's crazy bright too. It'll be a great addition to my collection. With 4 brightness levels (plus firefly), it'll be usable in just about any scenario that requires a thrower flashlight.

    I have Powerex 2700mAh AAs in it (these measure in the 2500 mAh range), they should work well in it. When I first put the cells in the carrier, it wouldn't fit into the light... uh oh... fortunately I read reviews that said if you push the batteries in hard enough they'll pop in further into the carrier, and after I did that it fit perfectly.
