Bought to replace my r50 seeker. It's brighter and takes a normal 26650 that can be charged in a charger
Great Light But...
Posted by RAH on 20th Jun 2018
This Thrunite TC20 is an incredible light. The beam on it is fantastic! It's the best mix of flood and throw. I bought a neutral white for myself & a cool white version for a friend. I especially liked the tint on the cool white version. The pleasant cool white tint surprised me, and this is coming from a person who mostly buys neutral white lights. The neutral white gives very good color rendering. I don't know what Thrunite did but, the tint on both versions is very good, and this is great considering how the CREE XHP 70/70.2 emitters have noticeable tint shift. In addition to the great tint, the size is remarkable at under 5 inches.
Given my many praises for this light I have to say that there are some things I'd like to see added to the TC20 in perhaps a future updated version.
1) A button lockout option (yes, you can loosen the head slightly and the light will turn off but, an electrical button lockout would be better)
2) A slight modification to the user interface in which after you double click to get to the highest 3800 lumen setting you can click once to return to the previous setting you were on. I have to cycle the light back through its modes to get to were I was.
3) A 1000 lumen mode would also be greatly appreciated given how quickly the light heats up.
All in all, the TC20 is a great light at a great price. It is an even greater value when the light is purchased during the 20% off promo.
NW Very Yellow Tint
Posted by Tom Supergan on 15th Jun 2018
The neutral white version is in my opinion not "neutral." It should be classified as "warm." If the light is shined on a perfectly white color, it does look white. However, if it is a slight off-white with a little yellow in it, the flashlight shining on it turns it yellow, not off-white.
I've read reviews for the V6 and they said the Cool White is closer to neutral white. Wish I knew that before purchasing, because I hate a blue tint which picks up fog and moisture in the air too much, so I ordered the NW. The CW might have been what I was looking for--close to true colors, neither blue nor yellow tints.
The other specs seem to be dead on as far as brightness. Very wide spread with a diffuse hotspot for throwing down the trail quite a bit farther than if it didn't have a central hot spot at all.
Also, I had to fix the flashlight before it would work. The paper insert to insulate the cell from the circuit was glued to the bottom, probably by excess flux. I had to carefully remove it with pliers, then clean thoroughly with a Q-Tip and alcohol. At least I finally got it working and love it.
Bright light, maybe rushed to market?

I preordered this light some months ago, waited patiently, and received it. Charged it and used it. Very bright, gives off substantial amounts of light, and runs for the advertised times.
On the 2nd charging, I got the purple/flashing light. I had to disassemble the light and clean off some sort of protective coating (like a grease) from the positive contact on the light, reassemble, and then it worked again.
One downside is I don't see bare 26650 batteries for sale on the TN site. Makes it harder to have extra batteries on hand (hard to know which other brands are decent).

I pre-ordered this in March, and received it a few weeks ago. Out of the box it worked fine, but after a day, it refused to charge (purple light on the switch). ThruNite support was really not much help, and I needed the light for a trip the next day.
I completely disassembled the light and found remnants of soldering flux from the manufacturing process on the battery contacts, with additional smudges of it very close to the contacts. After cleaning the parts with electrical parts cleaner, I reassembled the light and it (so far) continues to work fine.
The run times with the included battery are as advertised, if not a little better.
The light DOES get hot in Turbo mode, so I suggest using it sparingly (it will get too hot to handle if you are not wearing gloves).
The light gets warm, but not terribly so, in HIGH.
I would not call this light a thrower or a flood - it's sort of a hybrid. The throw ends after about 40 meters, and the flood aspect is just a few degrees too narrow for my preferences.
That said, this is an all-around good light. I used it in a Nevada mine, several hundred feet underground, and 2000 feet back to the end of the mine. Being a large mine, we had a 4 hour exploration going, and after 2 hours, the battery exhausted itself (I switched to my backup light, a TN Neutron).
I charged the battery that night, and it was ready to go again for the next round of exploring. On that trip I managed to drop it in water, dust, and mud and it never stopped working.
I would very much like to evaluate other ThruNite lights on my YouTube channel, where I use the products for various underground exploration activities.
Great light with good life

I have only had a few lights, most of them older models you might buy at a discount sporting good store. I was sick of always buying batteries and always worrying about a dimming light. NO LONGER! I researched all these new brands I had never heard of, Nitecore, Acebeam, Fenix Olite, etc...What I wanted was a small, bright, water resistant , rechargeable light that would be durable enough to take on backpacking and climbing trips. The search ended with the ThruNite TC20. I now have easily over 2K lumens and 3K when I need it that I can recharge in the car or with a small solar cell. I use this lamp for photography trips in the high sierras. It also has been functioning as a video light when I need it. As a photographer, the only suggestion I would make is if there was a 1/4 screw mount someplace on the body to mount on a tripod.
UNA PICCOLA GRANDE TORCIA
Posted by Massimo on 26th Apr 2018
eccezionale torcia dal design compatto che può stare in qualsiasi posto senza disturbare.Luce potentissima per le sue dimensioni per adesso è la mia torcia preferita
Come difetto dopo un uso prolungato in modalità turbo scalda un po
La consiglio a pieni voti
Posted by Jeff on 25th Apr 2018
It get's very warm on the High setting after extended use. It's very bright on high, which is why I never use the Turbo setting. Overall good light!

Wow this think is Bright.
Posted by Jeffrey on 22nd Apr 2018
This is the second Thrunite. I have a p12 and not the TC20. They are both very nice lights. You can tell when you pick it up that it is high quality. TC20 is very solid and the attention to detail is very high. Wow, this thing is bright and reasonably priced. I cannot believe that something this small could be this bright. I would recommend and I plan on buying more.
Posted by Mike on 21st Apr 2018
This is a great light for a great price. My only complaint is the Turbo mode. The book says High is 1800 and Turbo is 3800. Their is only a slight difference between them and requires cleaning the contacts for the battery.
Great performance for the size.

This is a great light for its size and price. The output is one of the best for its size, currently. I have the NW color temperature which renders good color accuracy. The beam pattern is a very useful distribution between flood and spot. This may not be a good candidate for EDC because of its diameter, but it is a great home, vehicle, camp or belt holstered light.
Exactly what I expected!

This is my 3rd Thrunite flashlight. I also own 2 headlamps, and numerous Thrunite charging systems. Thrunite has earned my loyalty with quality products that provide excellent value.

This is another amazing light I got from Thrunite. It’s a great product.
