I was just about to pull the trigger on a TN30, but I'm going to wait until I've read some more about this issue. Too bad.

In your research did u also consider Nitecore TM26? Just wondering because for awhile I couldn't decide between TM26 and TN30 XM-L2

Visit BLF and type in its search bar 'TN31 flickering problems'... and wander around, plenty of similar problems

Thanks for bringing the Nitcore TM26, as I wasn't aware of it. I'd been out of the loop for more than a year because of health issues.

Thank you for the great review. Do you think you will be doing one on the TN32 anytime soon.

It looks like there is a further update. Thrunite is now selling this unit for $88.95. They are no longer shipping it in an aluminum case. It is cardboard like their other items, or at least like my TN12 came in (just bigger ;-) ). It also appears to have more lumens. It is now 1346 instead of the 1147 it was.

Yes, part of that is no doubt the move to XM-L2 from XM-L on the original version I reviewed (although there may have been circuit changes as well, to boost the output). It appears that Thrunite is positioning this as a more "budget" version of the the higher output, copper-heatsink TN32 thrower.
