Thrunite TC12 Flashlight Review

The Thrunite TC12 is unique in that it has a built in battery charger.  Plug in a micro-USB cable to charge the flashlight.  While charging the brightness selector button flashes. Being USB rechargeable makes this is an excellent truck, car or nightstand flashlight design.  Keep the Thrunite TC12 in the console or glove box of the truck.  To charge, simply plug it into a USB charger.   Most people have some kind of cell phone charger in their vehicle.  Use the included cable to charge the light. To review the Thrunite TC12 I did my typical battery of test. starting with the freeze test. Continue Reading….

Atactical A1 My New Go To Flashlight

Let’s just say that I am very impressed with the Atactical A1 flashlight.  I have had this flashlight for around a month.  During that time it has stayed in a table next to the front door. As some of you know I live in a rural area.  It is not uncommon for the dogs to start barking at something.  When they do, I take the Atactical A1 flashlight and walk around hoping to see what they are barking at.

Thrunite TN4A Flashlight Review

Up until a few months ago I had never heard of Thrunite. The leaders of the high quality flashlight pack are names like Surefire and Streamlight. Those guys better up their game because Thrunite is offering a quality product at a very affordable price. Full disclosure: I received the Thrunite TN4A at no cost to myself. Receiving a sample at no cost to myself will not influence my opinion as I look at the results of the test. The most important factor is if the flashlight passed all of the test and continue operating. The test: Some of the youtube viewers have accused me of abusing the flashlights in my test. One example is the Thrunite TN12 review where the flashlight is put through all Continue Reading….

Thrunite Archer flashlight ultimate test

This is a review of the Thurnite Archer 1A V3 flashlight. Awhile back I did a review of the ThruNite TN12. The TN12 took everything I threw at it and kept working. With this review of the Thrunite Archer I decided up up the game and add some different test. Disclosure: The Thurnite Archer was sent to me at no cost to myself. This will not affect my opinion of the flashlight and hopefully will not affect your opinion. The Archer comes with a lanyard and a heavy duty clip.  I removed the clip for the test.  To get the clip off I had to use a screw driver and pry it off the flashlight housing. Continue Reading….

ThruNite TN12 review

Up until just a few days ago I had never heard of ThruNite, much less the ThruNite TN12.  Someone on youtube reached out and asked if I would be interested in reviewing the TN12.  After looking at the light I said sure, I would love to see it. Looking at the ThruNite TN12 on amazon, I asked myself how good could a $49 flashlight be? First impressions are important.  I liked the quality of the box and how the flashlight was packaged.  It is “just a box” but first impressions are important.  I liked the overall packaging, the light was held in place with padding.   Official Website: (5% OFF Coupon Code:THRUNITE , limited time!) http://www.thrunite.com Amazon US: http://www.amazon.com/thrunite Continue Reading….

Surefire 6PX Pro Review

Surefire made a name for itself by manufacturing high quality products, and at an affordable price. The Surefire 6PX Pro raises the bar in the sub $100 flashlight market.Surefire 6PX Pro

Made in USA – Yes
Dual output – Yes, 200/15 lumens. Surefire website says there is a new 320 lumen model.
Momentary no/off – Yes
Lanyard – No
Water resistant – Yes
Water proof – Yes
Battery – 123A
Model – Surefire 6PX-B-BK

Made in USA – Its nice to see a company investing in the nation they are trying to sell their products in. In this case the Surefire 6PX Pro is advertised as being made in the USA.

Dual Output – 200/15 lumens, which makes it nice when you go from looking for firewood around the campsite, to inside a tent.

On a recent hunting trip, I found the 15 lumens just right for following the ATV trail, but not so bright that my nightvision was messed up.

200 lumens provides plenty of light for nighttime operations.
