Here is a short review of Thrunite Ti4 LED torch by Mr. H.Y as posted on Malaysia’s flash light enthusiast Facebook group The Bright Side. This re-post (pictures as well) was taken with permission from Mr. H.Y himself. Credit to Mr Dannie Chua of Radiant Den for facilitating this
A simple reverse clicky penlight, my Thrunite Ti4 is neutral white version, options like cool white and exotic body material (Titanium) available too.
4 modes available:
Firefly (0.3 lumens), Low, High and Strobe. Strobe can only be access if you cycle FireFly, Low, High twice in a row.
A couple of ways to change mode:
1. Flashlight is ON: Twisting the head, or if you prefer, twisting the body, depending on your perspectives. Btw, it’s twisting the flashlight body, not your own body. K?
2. Flashlight is ON: Half press (without the click sound) the tailcap.
3. Flashlight is ON: Quickly click-off and click-on, meaning, full press the tailcap twice (hearing the click sound twice).
Hidden operation, for you who are tactical minded with “tactical fingers”. With the flashlight ON, you can manually strobe at Firefly or Low or High mode by “super”-quickly half-pressing the tailcap repeatedly. How long it strobe depends on how long can you super-steadily maintain the repeated half-pressing speed.
No mode memory, unless you consider remembering your last used mode for 10 seconds is memory. I don’t.
It’s a simple, budget-friendly, neutral white penlight that operates on common 2 x AAA batteries. (Forget the 10 seconds memory thingy), predictable start mode, FIREFLY mode.
It’s a budget friendly penlight.
Things to watch out for:
- The tail switch (reverse clicky) is a little stiff from factory, will need time to “break-in”. Half press is smoother after the break-in period.
- Don’t unscrew the tailcap unless you really have to. If you are curious enough after reading this, just make sure you pay attention to the o-ring when you screw the tailcap back in. The o-ring may get deformed as there is a small bump at the tail-end of the body tube, it seems to be used as a locked-in/stopper for the clip so that it doesn’t move freely.
- If you are a doctor, or you are looking for a light for a doctor, this may or may not be the light for you due to the tint, depending on what light you used to use.
