Hope I'm not too late... 😋

I bought one thinking it was a good configuration at reasonable price. Well... The body is well made, anodizing is ok, looks are fine. But... The tailswitch is gritty and mushy, feels like a $5.00 light. The side switch feels cheap, moves sideways under the finger. The Turbo is down to High level before you have time to count to five. There is a very annoying purple ring on the edge of the flood part of the beam. At times it looks like the light goes on self-lock mode. As the battery voltage reduces, the light dims.

In short, a $40.00 light that feels like a $14.99 light.

I'd rather pay double and have something that feels and works like quality.

If you ordered one of the 50% off deals, check your light...

Shipped the wrong LED with my order.

No answer yet to email about mistake...


Nice light as the tail-switch is forward clicky momentary and full output at 100% output always. Side switch has all functions and works independently as the casing has a tube isolating the tail-cap switch.

My sample was clearly not 1900 lumens (around 1000)

Ordered SFT40 and got SST40 (SFT is de-domed and can handle more power with 4 bond wires instead of 2)

Has Thrunite gotten back to you?
Guessing someone made a mistake.
Likely the last one was shipped out to another customer.
That may be why they are dragging their feet.
No more TN12 Pros with that emitter available.
Also, didn't register with me at the time but....
This is clearly a Clearance Sale.
These models being discontinued.
Inventory being sold off and cleared out, completely.
I mean, I snagged a TN50 for just under $130.oo
That was $280.oo when first released several years ago.
Settled down to $260.oo after awhile.

Sorry to say but if you want that other emitter, you'll have to swap it out yourself or get someone to do it for you. Thrunite really should have been up-front that this is a Clearance sale. Can you send it back for a refund? Usually Clearance sales are final. But since Thrunite never called it that, you might be able to get your money back.

@Monocrom

They did after 5 days.

They never had the SFT in neutral but their software list it automatically... Pretty much a giant waste of time with wrong LED and all the hassle!

I don't want the SST40 light. I have hundreds of lights and was looking for the more neutral version of the SFT40 as I have purchased some of those in lights recently.

Sorry to hear that. I know what it's like to order something listed, and get the wrong version because some computer tech. screwed up.
