Review ThruNite TH10 Headlamp
« on: January 03, 2017, 12:37:47 PM »
This is the ThruNite TH10 Headlamp. (neutral version) This sample was sent to me by ThruNite for review and NO other compensation other than keeping the light itself.
You can find the TH10 on the ThruNite site or on Amazon……(Links are NON affiliated)

Thrunite asked me to post this coupon code..........(5% OFF Coupon Code:THRUNITE , limited time!)  http://www.thrunite.com

First let me apologize if I kind of skipped around and fumbled through the first portion of the video review. It has been a rough past week or so here , with a death in the family and at the time , I was fighting with what I think maybe the flu and was taking cold medication and with all combined it kind of had me in a fog , as far as my thought process.

Although not one of their newest lights ,the TH10 is a very well constructed light as have been all my ThruNite products to date. This light is available in both Neutral and Cool tints. The fit , finish and overall build quality are all excellent and the threads are buttery smooth on the sample I received. I did not mention in the video the TH10 has Low Voltage protection I don’t think. I DID mentioned however , that it can use not only the 18650 cells , but also two 16340 or two RCR123 can be used instead if desired.
This is not a close up type headlamp for working and it is not a real long range light either , with it kind of falling in the middle for things like medium range hunting (40 to 100 yards or so) also good for camping , as it has the firefly mode for getting around a tent or camper and on low mode is very adequate light for inside the camping area.

I did do some tailcap readings and the numbers I got with a fully charged and rested LG MJ1 cell are …… Firefly 0.0 amps / Low 0.06 amps / Medium 0.41 amps / High 1.35 amps / Turbo 2.44 amps.
 Although there is approximately a 1 amp jump from High to Turbo , visually the difference is barely noticeable in real time (at least to my old eyes), until you are out at like 75 to 100 yards , but then at the greater distances it is much more noticeable than at the closer distance to the eye. I think the still shots in the video portion picked up the difference much better than I actually perceive it with my eyes.
 I do not have any good direct comparisons to the TH10 as far as headlamps go , as all the other headlamps I have are very floody and much more suited for close up stuff , but I did use the TH20 and the BLF A6 to do some outside shining comparisons with the TH10.

I think everything else is covered in the video portion and if you do not want to watch the whole video , the still photos and beamshots start at 6:56 in the time line and the outside shining and comparison start at 10:18 in the timeline.
