  1. Great light 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Oct 2017

    This light met all my expectations and more. It’s big and heavy which is exactly what I wanted as I was looking for something like a mag light that can be used to strike as well. It looks and feels very durable with thick aluminum construction. This light throws a very long distance. With all that being said, it definitely has more specific uses. For an everyday around the house tasks go for the TN12 or TC12 that has more flood and is easier to carry.

  6. Long Distance Ilumination 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jun 2016

    I own many LED flashlights with the CREE LED, from 1 cell 19650 to 3cell 18650 units, the 3 cell is equipped with 7 LED's and is very bright with a broad beam and is excellent for close to mid-range illumination but lacks the ability to penetrate long distance.
    I purchased the ThruNite Catapult V5 UT Cool White that uses 1 LED and 2 18650 batteries. This thing is a long distance MONSTER, truly a great light for search and rescue operations and those times where you need to really see what is in the distance. A hand held spot light. Very robust switches and construction, I really like the instant strobe feature, when the light is off simply press the forward switch and the strobe is on, hold the switch for 3 seconds and the strobe stays on until switched off.
