Watch:ThruNite Neutron 2C Flashlight Review

ThruNite Neutron 2C

The ThruNite Neutron flashlight is probably the most flexible flashlight in my collection. Not flexible as being able to bend, but flexible as in offering the greatest number of lumen options.

Unlike other flashlights on the market, the ThruNite Neutron flashlight, does not have preset brightness settings. Holding the on/off button fades, or increases the brightness. This allows the user to adjust the ThruNite Neutron to exactly the lumens needed for a certain job.

Atactical A1 My New Go To Flashlight

Atactical A1 flashlight review

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 ready to grab and go.

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.

No Lanyard Or Carry Pouch

The Atactical A1 does not include a lanyard or carry pouch, which is fine with me.

Let’s be honest, most of the factory included lanyards are junk. They are cheaply made and are just about useless.

What I would much rather have is a lanyard hole large enough to run either trotline or 550 cord through. Unfortunately, a lot of flashlight manufacturers put rather small lanyard holes in their flashlights.

The Atactical A1 has lanyard holes large enough to run green trotline string through. The green string has a rating of a little over 300 pounds. Instead of having a useless cheap lanyard, I have a piece of string with a 300 pound rating.

There are some people who carry a flashlight in a pouch, but I am not one of them. If you want a carry pouch, there are plenty of aftermarket options.

Thrunite Archer Flashlight Ultimate Review

Thurnite Archer 1A V3

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.

The name of the Thrunite Archer is a little misleading. Rather than 1A, maybe it should be called 1 AA, as it holds a single AA battery.
