    Thrunite TN4A (XP-L V6, 4xAA) review: RUNTIMES, BEAMSHOTS, VIDEO and more!

    I'm gonna pull the trigger on the HI. Even if it actually is 100 lums lower, no one (even me) would see the difference. I've always wondered what my light would have been like with a smooth reflector. Guess I'm gonna find out. Too bad about the discount.That's a helluva light for 30 something bucks.

    Thrunite TN4A (XP-L V6, 4xAA) review: RUNTIMES, BEAMSHOTS, VIDEO and more!

    Hmm I'm still a little confused the TN4 (XPL) shows 1150 lumens even in NW. The TN4 XPL hi shows 1050 lumens. Both appear to have smooth reflector Edit: I believe "smooth peel" is translation issue. If the textured one is "orange" peel the smooth one must be "smooth' peel. with "peel' being the...

    Thrunite TN4A (XP-L V6, 4xAA) review: RUNTIMES, BEAMSHOTS, VIDEO and more!

    I just lost my first TN4A. It actually was my favorite light and bulieve me I have a BUNCH. I intend to replace it with a new one. IF I had a "complaint" about the light is that it had an orange peel reflector. The Thrunite site shows the new ones with a smooth reflector. Can anyone tell me for...

    Arizona flashaholic get-together

    What a great time. It was a bonus to see our beloved mistress again. It's been YEARS. There are some really cool lights out there in the world, fer sure. Because I didn't think I was coming, I didn't bring any lights except for a couple daily soldiers. I did enjoy Bryson's quad copter. I'm...

    Best easy replacement for LUX III still SSC P4?

    Gosh I wish I had known about this. I got 14mm boards because they're the diameter of the H22 heatsink pedestal and sanded off the locating nubs on the heatsink. I've got 8mm boards on the way now LOL. Datiled, does somebody sell the copper shims? It'd be a little tricky for the home brewer to...

    My kits came in today. I MUST say this sure is an easy upgrade. It makes that nearly worthless MiniMag into quite the light. Thank you Charles for the great service.

    Hope I don't get myself banned. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69VsAEafSgM Here's one I find annoying because it's directly related to a recent bad relationship with a bad girl. It won't go away either...... Fast Cars And Freedom

    What are some other words which are commonly mispronounced?

    Wow this thread netted a lot of posts in a hurry. I was going to reply to many phrases by multiple quoting. There are so many I gave up but I will submit one or my own. One of my pet peeves is "hot water heater". What in the hayel is a hot water heater and why would you need it? If the water is...
