I was about to buy one until I saw that it used button cells,oh well.
T10T. I also recently sent Thrunite an idea for an angled headlight and they seem to have bitten.
You're evil. I want to upgrade from my SS version to this.... Can't justify the price right now.
Ha, nice - when is the anglehead due out? Or is there a release date?
I don't even know if it's definite. I was just told their design team liked the idea a few days ago.
The best part of the TN12 is the fact is goes from 1000 lumens to like .02 lumens such a versatile light.
Love mine. I've a t10t, which I used today and a the new Ti3 titanium which sits proudly on the car keys. Another resident of tallboy towers has a tn12 and I'm rather envious. I think they're good value for money and well built. Of course they look very nice with alox SAKs which can only be a good thing.
Do you have the cool white, or neutral version of this light?
They have an angle head light? Hmmmmmm
I have the tn12 and I love it! Would like a catapult but can't ever find one.
I was going to buy a Lynx. Then add a Scorpion Turbo head to make it throwy. But it seems to have been discontinued quietly. I'll probably get a SupBeam T10 instead.
Last week my Tn12 2014 NW came in the mail. I have been extremely happy. My only two complaints is that the pocket clip is tough to clip to pants. The light has a flared out edge literally right in front of the end of the pocket clip. My other complaint is that the 4th and 5th (Brightest) mode look almost exactly identical, even outside.
edit: Pocket Clip issue is shown here. Even thin jeans pockets are tough to fit under that lip.
Quick question: Does anybody know where i can get the Thrunite Archer 1A? But the old one! There is already the Archer 1A v2 but i want the v1... They are not available on amazon anymore...
What kind of battery are you using to power your TN12? Higher output lights like this sometimes require a little higher-end battery, to keep up with the amperage draw, for best performance from the light.
I"m not sure where you might be able to find an Archer 1A, but good luck with your search!
Anyone have the Archer 2a V2 in stock these days?

Nitecore 18650 3400 MAH. Is there something more powerful that would work? Do IMR batteries work?
No - The Nitecore batteries have some pretty nice specs, and should be working very well in that light. Good IMRs are built to withstand high drain applications, like high performance flashlights, etc. I'm kind of surprised that the two outputs are hard to distinguish from each other - unless the light has a step-down feature (it drops in power, to the next lower level, after a certain number of minutes, or at a certain heat level, to protect the light from overheating - in which case, the light wouldn't have access to the highest level, unless it was cooled own, or shut off and turned on again.
I was reading a review on the TN12 (2014 - cool white version), and the difference between the turbo and high modes is only 200 lumens, which is not a huge difference, to the naked eye, in the grand scheme of things. That may possibly explain the lack of a huge noticeable difference between the two outputs - except that you should be getting more throw out of the turbo mode, than you are in the high.
Generally, because of the lack of larger heat sinks, and/or cooling fins, compact 18650 lights share this weakness. They weren't designed to run for extended periods on the turbo output. Something has to be sacrificed, and it's usually the run time that light is capable of producing, at the highest output.
What kind of time periods are you running the light on, on the turbo level?
There are batteries that provide higher drain but not any that I know of that provide much more capacity (run time) . Most of the name brand batteries will do well in this light. If you can tell that the levels are changing then the battery is providing sufficient drain.
As a general rule, you won't perceive much difference in brightness between two light sources until one is about twice as bright as the other.
...and our eyes don't perceive changes in brightness linearly, but logarithmically. It's been written that it would take four times the lumen output, for the human eye to perceive twice the brightness.
