  3. Lightweight and Bright 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Oct 2016

    It really is hard to find anything to complain about with this light.
    It is plenty bright using just a AA battery.(apparently even brighter with a 14500 battery)
    It puts out a nice broad pattern that works nicely for a headlamp.
    It is also very light and comfortable to wear.
    While I really do like my headlights to have a red light function with this light's lowest mode so far I have not missed the red light.
    I feel it is priced realistically as well... Not super cheap but not $100 either.
    Well built, small, light, comfortable, functional light for the money.
    If I had to make any suggestions I would say to go with the natural white version.
    In my opinion it really is the most useful color option and I am not really sure why ThruNite would take the time to offer the cool white version.

    I can't find a single thing to complain about with this light.

  4. Compact AA Headlamp for people seeking great gear. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Oct 2016

    I found the form factor to be great. One button operates on/off and variable brightness from firefly to fully bright. Simply unscrew the tailcap to lock out light in your pack. I have used with both the 14500 and AA batteries. Either will provide more than enough light to explore the night. I bought a second one I liked it so much.

  5. Great bit of kit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Oct 2016

    Had my th20 3 weeks ago I've used it every day and can't fault it's quality and performance I have and will recommend your products to friends

  6. Excellent except the head strap slips. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Sep 2016

    It is a fantastic easy to control intuitive light. My only beef is that without a top strap the thing tends to either slip down or slip up... on a head with no hair it wouldn't be an issue.

  7. Great piece of gear. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2016

    Excellent headlamp, priced right. Brighter than I thought it would be. Light output is more than you would think for the size.

  8. Great Light 5 Star Review

    This is an excellent light I use it doing morning and evenng chores. I love that my hands are free to do whatever needs doing.

  9. Very Pleased with the TH20 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2016

    Never having owned a headlight before, I don't have anything to compare this one to. Having said that, I really like the TH20. The infinitely adjustable brightness is a big plus, the construction is sturdy and straightforward, the tilt feature works great, the stretchable headband allows a good fit, and the price is very reasonable. Similarly to one of the other reviewers, I ordered the cool white LED but the tint is decidedly warm and yellowish---not a dealbreaker but ThruNite needs to pay attention to this.

    I use the TH20 for close-up work on small items, and it is a huge help in putting plenty of handsfree light exactly where I need it. I am very happy with this purchase.
