  1. Excellent all purpose flashlight. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jan 2020

    As a third shift maintenance mechanic, this baby is slick, small, and quick to light up any situation I come across. The mode settings are finely spaced, with easily accessible turbo and strobe settings. The firefly is just icing on the cake when I need something easy on the eyes late at night. I can proudly say I'm not afraid of dropping it from a ladder, or if it falls into a toilet bowl; it's built to survive. Best investment I've made in a long time.

  2. Very nice 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2019

    This is a very nice light. I ordered it based on the power source flexibility and dimming feature. During hunting season it will be in my pack. Being able to turn on directly to the firefly mode will be a plus for hunting. Very good construction, nice packaging and quick delivery. Very pleased with my first ThruNite product.

  3. Mine Explorer's Light 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2018

    This is the 2nd one of these lights I've bought. I bought this one because I couldn't find the first one I bought.

    A day before this one showed up, I found my original one!! The new and old ones are identical, both of high quality, and throw a good amount of light, for a long time, on a single 18650 battery.

    Depending on your needs, you can 'tweak' this light by picking different types of 18650's (aftermarket). The included one is great, but some 18650's will allow for a higher current draw, while others will more slowly step down in voltage and supply constant current for much longer. What this mean is longer run times in certain modes or less PWM from the light.

    I use these lights, and a TC20, for exploring old underground mines in CA and NV. I can easily get 4 hours of usable light with the included 18650. With the TC20, I can max out my underground time to 6-7 hours.

  4. Some confusion at first 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Oct 2018

    easy one handed use, i like its size fits nicely in the inner pocket of my jacket. i was confused at first when i tried to charge it and realized later on i had to remove the paper stopping contact between flashlight and battery.

  5. GR8 Light 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2018

    Impressive, high quality, small light. Variable output modes and a game changing USB charging side port!
    -It's one GR8 light!

  6. Quality Customer Service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2018

    I ordered from Thrunite several weeks ago. I didn't receive it as soon as I thought I would, but I gave it a week or so. When it became apparent that the flashlight wasn't coming, I sent an email to Thrunite explaining the situation. They verified my order and had the flashlight to me within a week.

    I enjoyed the light for the brief time that I had it before losing it in Ape Cave in Southern Washington, but hey. That's how it goes.

    Quality service, quality light. Will buy again.

  7. Very nice flashlight 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2018

    I quite like this flashlight. I use it mainly as a headlight for my bike and boy does it light up the road. Taking it off the mount, it's a fantastic flashlight to use thanks to its adjustable brightness. One small issue is that riding on very bumpy terrain can cause unprotected 18650 cells (like Samsung 30Qs) to shake and disconnect for a fraction of a second; however, the light will continue to stay on. Protected cells (like the included one) don't have this issue.

  8. Great Flashlight, With One Small Flaw 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jun 2018

    This is a really great flashlight for technical theater. With a quick double press, you can access turbo mode for looking at things high up, and with a press and a hold you can use firefly mode, for seeing things backstage. The infinity brightness mode is very good too, allowing you to pick a brightness and then remember it next time you turn it on.
    My one problem with this light is the button. It is very hard to find quickly because it is not too large and not pronounced. Apart from this small thing, this would be my ideal light.

  9. Great everyday carry light 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th May 2018

    I have had this flashlight for a month now and love it. The deep carry clip is great. There is just enough of the end to grab to get it out of your pocket. The many different light modes is another great feature. With the infinity setting it gives you plenty of light from 12 to 650 lumens. Firefly is great for walking around the house of up close jobs. With 2 clicks you have turbo and 1100 lumens is crazy bright. I don't use strobe if at all so I like how its 4 clicks to get to strobe from off. All my previous lights have had tailcap switches so it was a little different for me but I got over that very fast. This is by far my favorite light.

    Only con I have with it is the on/off switch is not very pronounced. So at night i find myself fumbling to find the switch. Now I just find the micro USB port and on the other side of that is the switch. Or you can set the pocket clip up so the clip is inline with the switch just a few little things I found to help myself.

  10. Brill little light 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2018

    I work as a nurse practitioner and this is my everyday carry. I didn’t think I would use the facility to use different size batteries but I actually do. Small torch with RCR123 during work then bigger torch with 18650 to walk the dog. Great UI and fantastic beam profile/tint. This is the neutral white version. Cracking little torch. Only complaint is that I had to make a small sleeve for the RCR123 to keep it snug in the battery compartment. Would highly recommend. Chris, Wales

  11. Small light with clever mode changes. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2018

    Thtunite 2C V3 is very good light. The most useful is how we changes the modes. It has stepless brightness so just hold the button down and it goes as bright or dim as required with no jumps exellent idea, thrunite use this idea in all your ligts !!!
    Build micro usb and 1x18650 inside flashlight, this is very good set.
    Neutral white is pretty good.
    2CV3 is always in my pocket :-)

  12. My new GSAR light 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Dec 2017

    Was looking for 3 main things for ground search and rescue and this light ticks all three.
    Good output: 650 lumens for 2.7h 1100 for when you need it
    Water resistance: Light is submersible up to 2m good for rain of a fall in the creek
    Rechargeable: I didn't want to spend money on batteries after every tasking.

    Great little light for $66 CAD

  13. "Uniquely Unique" 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2017

    After suggesting to my Nephew to pick up the Neutron and having tried out the ramping feature, I picked one up for myself as well. What makes the Neutron unique is that it can be powered using a single side switch, is convertible to use different battery sizes and has no tail switch. This makes this Torch truly a 1 handed flashlight ! The ramping feature and quick access to moonlight, high, turbo and strobe modes make this light a must have.

  17. THRUNITE QUALITY 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2017

    This is my third Thrunite light and I will keep coming back as long as they keep being as good quality as they have been so far. The Neutron 2C is a very good light. I have had it for a short period of time so far so an in depth review might not be possible yet, From what I´ve dealt with so far I have as follows:

    - The switch is completely leveled with the body of the light, which makes it very hard to just ¨feel¨ the switch to turn it on or off and usually requires either some fumbling or looking straight at the light (which kinda defeats the purpose if it´s a very low light scenario), which with my TN12 was not necessary because just by getting hands on the light you can feel where the switch is.
    - The other thing I miss is being able to gently press the tail switch to momentarily turn the light on with out doing a full ON/OFF press.
    - Strobe mode is a bit hard to get to. Strobe mode is kind of an emergency mode, used for very specific purposes, but the way it´s built into this light feels like they were just trying to push the light having strobe without really giving it much thought to any ease of access to that mode.

    -its modular feature of taking a smaller battery (which maskes the light smaller)
    - USB charging
    - the way the clip rides very high allowing a nice pocket carry

    Still out for deliberation is wether I prefer the ramping feature for the intensity or if I prefer the set intesity levels like those on the TN12. I will say that the ramping feature makes getting to the amount you are looking for much slower, whereas specific intensity modes allows you to quickly click through them and chose the one you want.

    Still a nice addition to my thrunite collection.

  18. Compact, Reliable, Bright, Inexpensive. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2017

    The Neutron 2C V3 is an exceptional light, bar none. It becomes even more exceptional when you factor in the price, the fact that it is USB chargeable, and that it comes with a high-quality battery.

    + Intuitive and sensible UI
    + High output and good mode spacing
    + Sustained maximum output without much throttling
    + Aggressive knurling ensures strong grip
    + Relatively compact, and can be used with several battery configurations

    - Side switch can be difficult to locate by feel in the dark, and feels a bit "mushy"
    - Variable brightness doesn't start at firefly and doesn't reach turbo.

  19. Great EDC light 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Nov 2017

    The light mode switching is intuitive and easy to use. The clip is deep carry so the flashlight stays hidden in the pocket. Zero issues after a few months of usage.

  20. Great torch but just missed the mark 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2017

    The Thrunite Neutron 2c v3 is a great compact torch. The infinity low and high is a good addition but slightly fiddly to use at first. When the torch is on infinity low/high variable setting is activated by holding down the switch. The torch then increases or decreases brightness until you release the switch giving you control on the brightness that you require. When it reaches its highest/lowest it will blink to let you know. At any point you release the button and hold it down again the torch will go in the reverse order of brightness e.g. if you're cycling down in brightness and release next time you hold down the switch it will cycle up in brightness. However, the good thing about the torch is that is you're on a low setting and want to have the torch bright without the infinity cycle from low to high, you can easily access turbo by double tapping the switch to guide full 1100 lumens. There is no tail switch which makes this a lot smaller than the ones with a tail switch so the size is compact. It can even be smaller since it can accept smaller battery form factors such as the CR123 and removing a section from the body. The great thing is that it can accept many different batteries so it's not reliant only on an 18650 type. For some customers this could be the perfect EDC torch. However, for myself, I would like to have one they has that tail switch. Having the tail switch helps from accidental side switch presses when carrying in a pocket. Saying that, Thrunite has the TC12 V2 that is pretty much the same but without infinity brightness. Perhaps Thrunite can release a Neutron 2C V4 with a tail switch or a TC12 V3 with the same infinity user interface as the Neutron 2C V3. Overall, a great torch, very good build quality with many battery options to choose from and adjustable size for those who want small torches to EDC.
