ThruNite Turbo Mode Test
« on: September 28, 2020, 12:36:01 AM »
Every time i got a new Flashlight i test Turbo mode to see how it behaves...
Testing is very simple, i Turn on The turbo mode and measure and collect data...
I monitor with light sensor how the light behaves (drops down lumens, stay stable...)...
Down here are some of my tests... and I hope that it will help someone to learn more about the lights I tested...
Lumens values are relative to the values claimed by ThruNite... I did not measure Lumens, just the duration and dropping down of lumens...

I have a question for more experienced members:
My testing means that I turn on the Flashlight in Turbo mode and leave it until it turn off or go to firefly mode...
Flashlights got very hot after some time, but i do not turn it off, I let them run until they turn off...

Is this kind of testing bad for flashlight, and can I damage the light with that...?
I usually do not use turbo mode for long times in real life... only when I test them...

So my question is: Did I damaged my lights in some way because of this one time test run on Turbo Full Time...!

Very nice testing. I love Thrunite torches. Extremely good quality and rated pretty accurately on output. I donít think you have damaged any of your lights. The automatic step-down, whether timed or thermally regulated, is there to protect your light from harm.

I recently bought a Thrunite T2 and itís an awesome light like almost all Thrunite lights are. I highly recommend it but the proprietary 21700 cell (identical to Olight proprietary cells) can put some buyers off. I do wish they had gone with standard cells but there are longer 21700 cells that will fit but not many.

All my Flashlights are ThruNite... I love them...

This is my Collection so Far:
Ti3,  Ti3 V2,  T10 V2,  T1,  Archer 1A V3,  Neutron 2C V3,  TC15,  TC12 V2,  TN12 2014,  TN12 2016,  TN12 V4,  TH10,  TH10 V2,  TH20,  TH30,  TH01...

ThruNite T2 and TT20 are next on my list to get...

I agree with you about the customized 21700 cells... But I guess it will soon become standard, because a lot of Flashlight Models are using them...
