    “Updated” Thrunite T10 (II)...can’t say anything about its longevity, durability, etc., but at a glance, I like it. Nice fit and finish. Works well out of the box. I like the neutral white option, the pocket clip location (versus the Archer series), and the variety of lumen outputs/runtimes. Seems worth a try for a little, single AA, economical pocket light.[​IMG]

    I like it but it seems like they dropped the max output on this versus the original model.

    I have held off on getting this light because I have not read any specs noting a lockout feature (besides unscrewing the cap), but I have seen a few reviews complaining about the accidental activation in pockets.

    Thoughts?

    Accidental activation is real. But I enjoy the high quality feel of this flashlight. It fits in my skinth p3mt perfectly

    Yes, it does have less lumens than the original.

    No lockout feature, and yes, I could see this light coming on easily in a pocket if the head is not unscrewed a little.

    Thank you for the feedback on the accidental activation. I still think it is a torch with good EDC potential, especially for only $20.

    dmattaponi, please share your impressions of the torch down the road as you use it more.

    I made this post originally in Feb 2019. As of Oct 2020 I’m still using this light as my EDC (and nightstand night light) and couldn’t be more satisfied. I do unscrew the head a little before heading out for the day(at home I don’t unscrew), and I’ve never had a problem with accidental activation. I’ve dropped the light many time and it keeps on working without an issue. The finish is holding up well as is the pocket clip which secures the light to the pocket well. Best of all the battery lasts noticeably longer than any of my previous AA lights, and I use this light a lot and sometimes for long periods of time. At $20 I think it’s hard to beat. Definitely prefer this light to the numerous Fenix, Lumintop, and other pocket Thrunight lights I’ve tried.
