Just looking at specs and 2.5 days on 90lumens is absolutely ridiculous. Also thia light is seriously overkill just the size of head is monsterous.

Thrunite's answer to the TM16GT. Just a few years ago you had to step up to HIDs for this kind of performance. And this one will out do a lot of them.

Which Thrunite flashlight has it?

I don't know about Thrunite. All my multi emitter Nitecores have a substantial battery drain. I usually leave my large lights at home and like to have them ready to use.
If this light has a very low battery drain Im buying it.
I'll wait for reviews.

Lou, any of the multi cell lights i have had from thrunite have been issue free from parasitic drain(everything else issue free wise for that matter!). Hopefully with this type of propitiatory pack, a simple turn of the tail cap will lock it out anyway.

That would be great news. I don't mind locking out lights but my girlfriend can't handle it. She is usually up later than me and we leave the dog outside the house to bark at things in the night. Sometimes the dog actually barks at something that needs to be checked with a flashlight. For now I "unlock" my Nitecores before I go to bed and lock them out in the morning. My TK76 doesn't need locking out, but the problem there is too many buttons for the girlfriend. It sure is nice to flood the entire yard with light when the dog is alerting you of a problem.

I wouldn't worry too much about parasitic drain with a 6.8 ah battery. My TN30 has 3.1 ah batteries in it, never gets locked out and I can't detect any parasitic drain. The only time I lock out a light is to keep it from being accidentally turned on. For someone wanting a big powerful light this looks like a good deal not having to buy batteries and coming with a powerful charger.

The only multicell light I have is TN32. I never lock it out. And never had any issues with self discharge. I guess Thrunite are wise enough to not change anything in perfectly working scheme.

Great features but.

Proprietary battery pack, NO THANKS!!!!


CHEERS :thumbsdow
I will not purchase a Proprietary battery pack flashlight; in a few years of use, a bad internal charging unit and or bad proprietary battery and the light is an expensive paper weight.

To be fair to Thrunite, this design is well suited for professional search and rescue, law enforcement and other agencies with budgets to bear the cost.

Why didn't they go with a single XHP70 and one reflector?

I understand the feelings with the packs and do agree to an extent. More flexible to swap your cells(or have a spare proprietary pack but more $$) . Pro packs are convenient to an extent being self contained , no removing of cells from carriers that takes time and a small toll over time(call it wear and tear or increased risks of dropping/fumbling) Then sitting in a charger.....not convenient if one likes to top off cells regular (like I do).

Although for this light I don't think necessary , it has a few benefits too. Guess I am saying if the light hits all the buttons, sometimes it's worth not ruling out altogether over the pack. IMO anyway, the rc40 I have found real handy so far with this type of set up. A nice change to break up carrier removals and trying to remove cells(without long nails) :laughing:

They may do at some point, for now the k60 fits that bill well. It would never be able to reach out as far as this, vinhs k60vn is a little over 200kcd but will admit the beam is very hard to beat ,being a single large reflector over multi types .

Interesting light.

Based on the 52mm dimension which I assume to be the battery tube diameter, the battery pack is probably 4x18650 all sitting physically parallel (not electrically parallel) to each other in the battery tube, with 2 pairs of 18650 electrically connected in series. If the battery pack ever malfunctioned, a replacement pack could be made as a straightforward DIY.
