Before I got the TK61vn[622Kcd] I was contemplating either the TN32 or the TK61. I got the TN32[1700 Lumens w/ 230/240Kcd] compared to the TK61 with 1000 lumens and 170Kcd. It was an easy decision.Besides the additional output you have 6 modes instead of 4,not counting strobe.

Now I have both,,Stock TN32 and Modded TK61vn!! Again, these lights in stock version are about the same price. Compare the OUTPUT of the two and it is an easy decision in that respect! :)

Hi Capoloni,

Is there difference seen between the stock TK61 and the stock TN32 both at turbosetting?

Is the TN32 more intense hotspot?

So yes, then i buy /order a stock TN32.

yes 170,000 lux vs 250,000 however the vn modded TN31 (same upgrades as the 32 but more) does around 400-500k lux and the vn TK61 does over 600,000

selfbuilt's test show that the TN32 only does 191,000 cd. ThruNite is probably using OTF lumens.

I understand these vn modded TK61 and TN32 are killer throwers. But everything has it's price. So what is the sacrifice? Hotpot size? spill brightness? Runtime? Just curious...

So, then the difference of my TK61 with the TN32, will be nihil. My TK61 is near as bright.

What are OTF lumens

Don't have the exactly specs. But my dealer measured 2 lux at 290 meters...


My English is very bad
I measured with my TK61 around 130 kcd
But with a few flashlights with thrower features to be measured at a distance as you wrote

I do not remember exactly but I run a measuring 5 meters and there were about 90 or 100 kcd
According to these measurements, the TK61 exceeds 170 kcd

I ran some tests on the 400 meters and the TK61 is able to illuminate at that distance
In conclusion, although at 1 meter distance with the instrument measuring only 130 kcd I affirm that the torch has declared performance

Terrible translation by Google Translate :)

130 kcd, inplace of the promised 170 kcd is dissapointing, isnt it? The TK61 should illuminate at over 800 meters, so 400 meters

Your TK61 does no more kcd have than my new 2900 lumen TK75, also 129 kcd (129000).. measured with a lightmeter of a friend, at 1 meter distance.

So, my TK75 2900 lumens is one of the few examples that exceed the manufacterer number of 119 kcd (119000) kcd. For a TK75 extremely powerfull and intense. My favorite allround performer.

But 130 kcd for a TK61 is a shame! The Fenix RC40 does the same, or even better.

Really not understand why Fenix not came out with a 250 kcd plus light. Like Olight did with their SR95 S UT.

I send it immeadiately back, if my TK61 has only 130 kcd, that is what i really hate, kcd far below manufacterer number of 170 kcd.

Then the TK75 with same kcd, but muuuch more lumens, is 10 times better i think.

The hotspot of my Olight M3X (XML2) is way more intense than my Fenix TK75 (XML2). According to the specs this shouldn't be the case.
In actual outdoor use the TK75 is still very impressive.

For one,THE EYE CAN FOOL US!!!

You can have 5 people measure Lux and get 5 different answers,,some of them may be a s drastic as 130Kcd compared to 170Kcd! Different equipment, improper measuring techniques, ect.

I have the TK61vn,,,,it was measured at 622Kcd!! I can assure you that is pretty accurate. that would be 622Kcd/.98miles/1577meters/1724yds.!! :eek::eek::eek:

I shed light on a water tower from .8miles/1408yds./1287meters!.It still had about 316yds. of throw left!!! :thumbsup:

I am convinced! I know this is not stock, but the first part of my post pertains to any light in regards to measuring lux.:)

Again, it depends on what distance you measure. For what I've read the TK70 for example, needs 30mtr to get the hotspot together with those 3 leds.

Fenix uses the ANSI standard. If this doesn't resembles what you see in real life it isn't the fault of Fenix, but of the standard. As long every manufacture uses the same way of measurement, it should give a good idea when comparing. And posting over and over again about 'Fenix lies about intensity' doesn't help.

Regarding my testing and what is seen by eye, I backed up what I saw by eye with a DSLR using various exposures comparing hotspots side by side and partially overlapped. The camera backed up what I saw by eye right down to very underexposed shots where the M3X was the clear winner.
These photos were taken at approx 3m so perhaps that has something to do with it as Kj2 suggests with the TK70 @ 30m thing?

824 meters ANSI corresponds to approximately 400 meters of real (good) visibility)


I send it immeadiately back, if my TK61 has only 130 kcd, that is what i really hate, kcd far below manufacterer number of 170 kcd.


View Kj2 reply,
With a few torch (thrower) the beam needs a few meters to converge, unfortunately I can not explain better because of problems with the language
I think the 170 kcd promised by Fenix ​​are true, otherwise I would not be able to illuminate up to 400 meters real

My comment was mostly directed to measuring lux.


I will FOCUS on the Eye for this post!


The EYE[my teachers!] can still be fooled in several ways. My example below fools me every time!

I know myself that sometimes "Tint" can fool us. Speaking of M3X,,,,,that light looks more intense and brighter than my Modded X10vn. Yet the X10vn has just a bit more lux and lumens, yet it looks dimmer and weaker. A nice cool white tint[M3X] looks much more intense and brighter, yet it has less lumens and a bit less cd's! :D
