ThruNite Neutron 2C Flashlight Review

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.

Now for the video.

ThruNite Neutron

Carry pouch mounts nicely to backpacks which have external webbing.

On/off switch has an LED in it, which makes the switch easy to find when the light it on. When the light is off, on/off switch can be a little difficult to find in the dark.  On/off switch LED indicates battery health.

Lanyard hole is very small. This is one thing I wish ThruNite would change on the flashlight. A lanyard hole large enough for 550 cord would be ideal.

Builtin USB port for charging is very nice.  However, having a builtin USB port means the flashlight is not waterproof.  When submerged, water will leak around the USB port. There is a rubber flap that covers the port which will protect it from rain.

With a price of $49.95 with Amazon Prime shipping, the ThruNite Neutron flashlight is not going to break the bank.

Full disclosure:  I received the ThruNite Neutron at not cost to myself.  I look at features, and if the flashlight was able to pass  a number of tests.  The results of those tests determine the final score.

How do I feel about the ThruNite Neutron flashlight?  It sits on the table next to the front door, and it used on a regular basis here on the farm.
