awaiting some beam shots :)

vinh do you think you could compare beamshots with the older tn36vn triple mkr and perhaps the mm15vn (if you have them in stock that is) - inquiring minds would like to know :)

also - I am sure this thing cranks out heat - just wondering in your testing how long you are able to get in turbo mode before you need to throttle back the output?

if vinh can't take the beam shots of mm15vn and tn36vn, I can at least tell you my perspective when I receive my tn36utvn. I still haven't learned to take beam shots nor do I know how to upload pictures on here just yet... But I can try and explain what I see from my eyes. I know it's nowhere the same as seeing beam shots tho haha. I don't know what you see in the mm15vn tho, it has been on my shelf and not used once I got the tn36vn. I might as well sell my mm15vn.

I suspect the runtime to be just about one minute on turbo. But what I really wanna test is the runtime on high. The original tn36vn is able to run on high for 10 mins or even more! And that's at 2800 lumens! This is the reason why I love the tn36vn.

I will guess at 3mins run time with all considered, the tn36 is a pretty solid well made light before vinh works his magic and improves heat sinking........

Presume you mean 8200lm:whistle:

the mm15vn has been my go to flood king for over a year and a half - I have handled the other flooders but I didnt see a need to upgrade it yet. Plus I have always enjoyed the mtg2... I might get a nw version of the tn36utvn though :)

The MM18vn is my favorite flashlight because it's a great flooder and a respectable thrower, and the flood and throw are controlled independently. You can have one or the other or both which add up to 7450 lumens. Did I mention it has long run times without overheating? Even though I think it will remain my favorite flashlight, I just couldn't pass up over 10,000 lumens at this price point.

I'm just hoping Vinh doesn't come out with a 20,000 lumen light next week! 😨

I really hope the run times are good. I love my TN30vn for its long run times. It is one of my most useful lights. Hoping the TN36UTvn will surpass it in usefulness.

You have lots of levels for great runtime.


I think I can put driverVNX2 in the TN36UTvn! However I do nto think this light needs it in terms of performance. Factory driver does a great job and factory UI is great too. DriverVNX2 would drive the cost way up for just a bit more lumen. If you love driverVnN2 like me though it might be worth it. Anyhow, Its kinda cool to know if we really really want to DriverVNX2 would work. Lots of rigging no doubt.

It doesn't sound as if driverVNX2 would look brighter to the human eye, but would be detected by a light meter. If that's the case, it wouldn't be worth it to me.

A big factor in my decision to purchase this light (besides the 10,000+ lumens) is that it approaches the performance of the TK75vnQ70, but at significantly less cost.

Yeah if it's such a small impact I'll stick with the factory driver too. Fantastic that you can work on it though. :)

Yah its not even an option for this light. Just want to mention that its kinda cool how we can do driverVNX2 in more lights now. Some lights really needs it.
