I'm looking for a 300 meter plus throw flashlight, with good flood too. I have been looking at the ThruNight mini TN 30. Anyone have any opinion on this flashlight or any other comparisons?

Thanks.
The ThruNite TN4A led HI 1050 lm cool white
I live this flashlight, sadly returned it because I saw the ThruNite mini TN30
There is good reviews out there but not good comparisons. Any ideas on an alternative flashlight or a similar one ? I'm looking for a light that has throw of about 300m but has decent flood to?
Thanks

I like it a lot Johnnie. It arrived with nearly all of the chrome gone from the clear plastic reflector. I thought I was stuck with a room lighter with only a slight bit of throw unless I invested in some kind of re-chrome materials.

Well I lucked up and found some new parts for LA Screw lights including a metal reflector made by Qualtech back then. I noticed the like new reflector in the LA Screw light looked awfully similar to that B-Lite reflector that I had painted white (to boost the throw a bit). Lo-n-behold it was the same reflector!! It also turns out that a Maglite lens works. It now has a Mag White Star bulb and a flashlightlens.com ultra-clear glass lens. And it beats the pants off of my 2D Maglite for brightness and throw. Only my 4C Mag with 3 cell krypton bulb can beat it.

But my favorite part was the "super star" sticker on the taiicap.

I like to think it came from a policemans kid. But it was an eBay item so I don't know the actual history.

The plastic Pro-Light I showed has the officers badge number on the bezel and the charger, while that Sigmalite has FPD engraved from a Fresno California police mans estate.

Welcome, Chris!  There is lots of information here for you. What kind of lights have started the bug?

Neither of those are quite right, but thanks for the tip about Bulb town. I think I found it there, #368:

http://www.bulbtown.com/368_Miniature_Bulb_Midget_Flange_Base_p/368.htm

It pushes into a collar from below, hence the need for a flange on the bottom.

Now that I have a number, it's time to see if I can find one locally.

Again, thanks!

Yikes!! That's a tough one.

Ima see what Bulb Town dot com shows. Be right back...

This one may work.

If you could provide some pix of how the bulb fastens to the light that can help us help you.

Could be a simple #222 or 224 could work as well.

I hope it's ok to provide links. I just figured PM's to a member with 1 post may not be possible.

I need a new bulb for an incandescent 2 AA flashlight. The only marking on the flashlight is KOREA. The only marking on the bulb is 2.4V KOR. It's a small bulb, only .62" long and .24" in diameter at the body.





I'd prefer another incandescent bulb because this flashlight is used to navigate around the house / hotels at night and I don't want a really bright light for this application. Thanks for your help.
