No, I didn't. But you can estimate by the relative lumen output on each level, proportionate to the Turbo level (i.e. cd and lumen tends to correlate fairly well). It is not an exact relationship but it close enough to give a good estimate.Could you tell me the cd values on high and medium?
Did you measure it?
Interesting pic, can't say I've seen that before. Is it only on Firefly mode, or do the other 3 regions of the die remain off at all levels?I picked up a TN36 on Amazon in Cool White and received it last week. I love the floody profile, useful modes, and interface. Unfortunately, one of the emitters started failing whenever I would switch to "firefly" mode (within 4 days of receiving the light). Has anyone else had a similar experience? I'm disappointed but plan on exchanging the light through Amazon and giving it another go.
Its like firefly is so low there is not enough current left to light the whole of the last led, based on if it works at other levels. I am no expert though. If you think about it asking 3 high power leds to give u a firefly is just as difficult as making a high power light like this in the first place.This only happens in "firefly" mode. All 3 of the LED's fire completely in any other mode...strange really.

Imo compred with MM15 that's about 5500-5000lm when batteries are above 4.10V, my TN36 NW starts on turbo at 6300lm than when getting warm after 5 minutes lumens decreases at 5700lm. I confirm you if you start TN36 when is cold you can reach certainly 6500lm!What is the difference in output between CW and NW for these MK-R in the TN36, the usual 7% (average) as for XM-L2?
I read the NW hits "only" 5500 lumens which makes it more than 15% less bright than CW, which, if true, is quite a lot. Can anybody confirm?
You are right in this case - the anodizing is irrelevant on the TN36, since contact is made through the battery carrier end plate (as is the case on most lights with carriers). I've corrected that line in the review.Most of the torches ( sorry, flashlights ) you review connect the negative through the tail part of the body to a contact ring around the circuit board in the head. I tested a number of my lights and not a single one of them had a connection/short/electrical continuity from the body of the head to this ring. Therefore, if the heads weren't anodized, it would make no difference at all to the operation of any of the lights. Locking out, as you know, is achieved by unscrewing the head enough to break the contact with the circuit board in the head. The anodizing on the thread plays no part.
Hi Dear CPF members,
I thought I would add a remark here, regarding ordering a ThruNite TN36, bundled with the MCC-4 charger and four 3400mAh 18650 batteries.
Long story short, I live in Budapest, Hungary, Europe. I ordered directly from ThruNite, the order was shipped from the German warehouse through amazon, by UPS. On the delivery date, I was waiting for my package, and called UPS customer service a number of times. They said that the package is on its way, and should be delivered at any moment. At night, before 8 pm a UPS employee called me and said that something went wrong, and he "found my package" in the warehouse, so it will only be delivered the next day. The package was delivered next day. It was sealed, looked ok from the outside, but when I opened it, IT WAS EMPTY! The boxes of the lamp, the charger and the batteries were carefully placed back and closed. Fortunately, there were cameras and a witness where I opened the box, but unfortunately I already signed in the device of the UPS guy.. I would never have thought that someone would steal a registered package, and it was not even local post that carried it.
I will try to obtain the serial nr. of the TN36, so if it ends up anywhere, everyone would know that it's the stolen one.
Of course I contacted UPS and ThruNite, but at first UPS seemed very ignorant. They even said that since the sender payed the shipping fee, the situation can only be solved between them.
I hope that ThruNite and UPS will handle the situation quickly, 'cause right now I am missing 279.95 dollars.
Wow!! Sorry to hear that. Amazon is involved, right? Maybe they would help. They have been VERY helpful to me in the past...almost to the point where I feel guilty.
BTW, I am searching for a big flooder and I added this one to my list to consider.
