I've carried, and used my Archer 1A V3 every day for the past 9 months and Love It! It's reliable, durable and the battery seems to last forever! I love the that it takes the easy to find AA and I'm only on my second battery in 2017!

This is one of the most durable, brightest flashlights on the market. I own three and love them all. Keep 1 in each car and 1 at the front door.
Great for EDC!

The Archer 1A V3 is the second light I've bought and as always, another great purchase. I like the fact it uses AA batteries, tactical rear push on/off, and the clip works just fine for me. The reason for 4 stars is that I wish it were brighter, maybe 400lumens. Still a good light and would recommend buying one.

This is a very good flashlight for what I needed (hunting). However the life expectancy really sucks. For no reason whatsoever my flashlight quit working, thrunite.com doesn't have a very good warranty policy. Barely used flashlight at intermittent times went bad in a surprisingly short period of use.

Seems to be well made and durable. Nice beam pattern. Neutral tint is easy on the eyes. Good burn time. Moonlight mode makes a great night light. Overall a wonderful flashlight. Would recommend to anyone. Not the world's smallest single AA flashlight but not a behemoth either.
A Great Light!

I've been pleased with all of the ThruNite products I have. The headlamps (TH20) the small T01 flashlights (perfect as gifts too) and now, the Archer 1A V3.
The headlamps and the Archer have multiple brightness settings, are easy to use and Reliable! I also like that the Archer has two switches. One is the "on" while the other changes the brightness settings. And, when you turn it off, it will stay in the brightness setting you last used. Perfect!
The ThruNite products I have ordered for myself, friends or relatives is approaching 50. Most were the T01's, but I have never been disappointed with their products. And, they won't be the last.
great light, great price, would recommend to you!

I really like this light, I purchased the NW version and I prefer this color tone for the light. Modes are great, Battery life is good, works fine as a headlamp clipped to my hat. I took one star off as I had a bit of reliability trouble with mine. After a couple of minor spills the light started working intermittently on the higher modes. Long story short, I removed the head and cleaned the battery contacts to the head for the negative side of the battery. It looked like this had not been cleaned at the factory well, and after the cleaning the battery works perfect again.

This Flashlight is Awesome.
It is small and have a lot of power. I hope that these Flashlight will support for a long time!!!
I use it with an 14500 cell from Xtar.
Everything is fine, but...
Posted by Vadim Maksimenko on 8th Jun 2016
It does not accept protected 14500 cells -- too long.

Thrunite has obviously been listening. For the money, I don't think you can beat this setup. I have personally carried the 2014 model TN12 ( 1,000 Lumens ) since it came out and it likewise, doesn't disappoint. If you're going to have... a AA EDC Flashlight, this is truly the only one I would bother with. I've owned Fenix, not bad mouthing them, but it's like comparing your Father's WW2 ( A battery ) flashlight with a screw-in lightbulb. They get the job done, but not like this new Thrunite will. Just get a couple. You won't regret it !
10 out of 10

Extremely lightweight, durable flashlight with five modes of operation, from 0.1 lumens up to 200 lumens all that with a single AA battery, it’s hard to surpass. If you were looking for a perfect EDC flashlight, search no more, this is it, 10 out of 10!
Great light for the size

This is a great all around light for your Every Day Carry, It seems to be built well, while maintaining an affordable price for something you will be constantly carrying around. I like the lightweight design with the ribbed finish, it makes for excellent grip, with a manageable total weight. I ended up with this light, because they seemed to be out of the V2 on Amazon, which was my first choice. The things that I do not care for is that the beam spread seems to be a bit to much for my preference, but everybody and there uses will be different. I also do not like that sometimes when turning it on I accidentally press the "mode" Button at the same times, but I would consider myself to have rather large hands, so maybe this is not an issue for other people. Overall It earns itself a 5. I have yet to test it with a 14500 Battery, so we will see how different the performance is with one of those soon.
