  • Use of O-rings (if available)
    The right amount of lubricant will be used on the O-rings before shipping to ensure the light can be assembled smoothly and protect from oxidizing the O-rings.
    If necessary, please replace the spare O-rings attached in the package.
  • Max Output
    Please mind the heat. When the light runs a long time, there is heat coming from battery discharge, drive circuit and LED, the flashlight head will be very hot.
    DO NOT run the light at max mode for a long time. To protect the battery, driver circuit and LED, 
    we do not recommend you run the light at max mode more than ten minutes.

  1. very bright 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Sep 2018

    excellent flashlight and reasonably priced

  2. Amazing power, compact but gets Heated 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2018

    For less than $50 there's no better flashlight you can buy. Multiple power levels, all which switch on command. Only drawback is it gets a little hot in the hand at the highest power level. Honestly worth it though.

  3. Perfect on night patrol 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd May 2018

    I have carried this light for the past year and a half on patrol. Most of my time has been on night shift. I use medium mode for most traffic stops, and it's bright enough to see into most vehicles with tinted windows. I have used strobe to disorient combative subjects. Turbo is great for searching in the woods in a down pour. I have dropped this light, run it over, thrown it, and abused it in so many ways. This light keeps on shining. I am back on this site to order another one for my girlfriend. She borrowed mine to keep an eye on the property while I was serving the rest of the county with my issued Pelican 8060. But for the size and light output, you can't beat this little light, and I've since had to repossess it.

  4. On/Off button 1 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2018

    The on/off button has not worked correctly since I received the light

  5. TN12 light 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2018

    Great light easy to use. I hardly ever use it on a setting more than the second dimmest! The brightness on the highest setting is extreme!

  6. Good things come in small packages 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2018

    Bought several of these now, really happy with them. I like them so much, I keep buying them for other people. Small (easily portable), gives off great light (packs a punch in a small package), solid construction, good battery. Thanks for the great product!

  7. Night does not exist anymore. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Dec 2017

    Love the functionality and efficiency. At 0.4 lumen I can theoretically use this flashlight an hour a night for nearly 5 years without charging the battery. At that level running 74 days straight is insane to me.

  8. Firefly 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Dec 2017

    I do like this little light. Its powerful when you need it and economic when you want. The firefly mode is 0.4 lumen, nice to read by, lasts forever. It has 5 modes, I would have liked one more low setting between low (18 lumen) and medium (175), the 2 highest settings you rarely use. The back on/off switch is a little too far down, no biggie unless you press the thing 500 times a day like I do for work. Good product, good price, its comparable to my Fenix but for half the price. It would have been nice if it came with an 18650 battery. Recommended.


    Posted by on 10th Oct 2017

    I purchased this light as a problem solver to the issues of finding great 14500 batteries... The upgrade to an 18650 battery was the best decision ever! Giving me readily available power source, not only for the torch, but to charge OTHER electronic devices!!!

    The quality is superb in both my ThruNite torches but seems refined in my new TN12. Aaaand the fact that this is sturdy enough to take out on tactical missions, while water resistant, at 1000+ lumens...for $49.95!!!! Why would you even ponder?!?!
    I'd highly recommend 2-18650 batteries (ThruNite brand best at 3400ma). I've used 2800ma with great success... BUT GET THE CHARGER FROM THRUNITE THAT HAS A USB AT END OF TUBE TO USE AS AUXILLARY CHARGER FOR OTHER ITEMS!


  10. Love my ThruNite's 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Sep 2017

    My first ThruNite a few years ago was the TN11S which I love and I wish I could get another one but they don't make them anymore so I purchased the TN12 (2016) XP-L v6 Max 1100 Lumen Flashlight, love the size,the lumens and the ease of use. I always let my friends know if they want a well built flashlight to buy ThruNite. Thank you

  11. Only light i carry 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2017

    I have bade 3 of these lights and i am about to order my 4th. I use them as hammers throw them across the shop. They have been droped off of cars driving down the road and run over multiple times. I have never met anyone who abuses flashlights the way i do and they last longer than anything else i have tryed. The only complaint i have is the edges around the tail cap are a little sharp but a file fixes that easily enough.

  12. Love it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2017

    It is a great flashlight. Very bright with long throw and just the the perfect size to carry around. The price is great too. Much cheaper than the competition but still the high quality. I already bought my second one and will buy another as a gift.

  13. Awesome! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Aug 2017

    The light is awesome it really works as advertised! Love the multidimensional with and the power output.

  14. Best in it's class... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jul 2017

    This light is the best in it's class - from the criteria of size, power, ease of use and most importantly, temperature control. Yes, temperature control (5 stars for this alone). At the highest settings the beam (I have a neutral white) has good color rendition and throw - I find myself taking this one on dog walks more than my others. Other lights heat up to uncomfortable levels on the highest modes, but this light takes much longer to get hot and never gets too hot that it is uncomfortable. The second from highest mode is more than enough to see far out down the road and the color tint is beautiful. The neutral white renders landscape colors very naturally and pleasing. Battery life is very good and this light seems to produce more lumens per run-time than my others, (Manker, ArmyTek, Streamlite, Raybek, Helotex, Prometheus Alpha).
    Not the smallest EDC, but the deep pocket carry is fine. Batteries last the longest in this light and it runs cool-ish. My favorite go-to.

  15. Good flashlight but power button fails 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2017

    I do own the 2016 version and I have a friend with the previous one. The power button on my TN12 fails most of the time: I click it and the flashlight briefly turns on while I am clicking it but then it turns off. When I click it again, it works. That is, I have to click it twice most of the time to turn the flashlight on. This does not happen on the previous version. It has been this way on my version since I bought it, but I decided to not contact customer support to avoid the hassle of returning it. Other than this, I like the flashlight.
