ThruNite Ti3 Flashlight - Preview and Test
It's Flashlight Thursday and we are taking a look at the ThruNite Ti3.
"This is the little light that can” and at first I laughted when I saw it
Available in Cool White or Neutral White
Ti3, another little key chain flashlight from ThruNite.
Small but bright (120 lumen), Simple but functional: four output modes, firefly, low, high and hidden strobe.
I have begun testing this light out and I have some footage from when I was out doing some night hiking.
⦁ LED: Cree XP-G2 R5 LED with a lifespan of
20+years of run time.
⦁ Battery: 1 AAA battery
⦁ Dimesion: 70mm(length)*14mm(head diameter)
⦁ Weight: .42oz without battery. .9oz
⦁ Reflector: OP Reflector
⦁ Aircraft quality aluminum body structure.
⦁ Premium Type III hard anodized (Ann O - dized) anti-abrasive finish.
⦁ Waterproof to IPX-8 standard. Protected against water submersion - The equipment is suitable for continual submersion in water under conditions which are identified by the manufacturer. IPX-8 means suitable for continuous immersion in depths over 1 metro. I do not know for how long though and that can vary from manufacturer.
⦁ Convenient twist switch.
⦁ Output and run time:
Firefly: 0.04 Lm(115h), Low: 12 Lm(6.3h), High: 120Lm(0.5h), Strobe:120Lm(1 hour)
⦁ One handed operation.
Turn on /off
Easily twist the head to turn on / off the light. Tighten the head for on and loosen for off.
When the light is on, turn off the light and then turn on in 2 seconds to change output mode.
Keep the light off between 2 to 10 seconds and then turn on, the output mode will keep the same as your last use.
Over 10 seconds and then turn on, the output will get back to firefly.
Cycle the “Change modes” for 6 times to activate hidden strobe mode(120Lm,13Hz).
-Very very well made
-The firefly mode is really very low while the high mode is exceptionally bright for such a small light.
-Very nice texture on the body with very grippy knurlings.
-Pocketclip is removable - Holds well.
Threads are very smooth, the head screws in firmly and there is no shakiness or looseness when the head is not fully tightened on the threads.
Great EDC flashlight
Tip : Buy some rechargeable batteries and save yourself some money.
Key chain attachment does not seem to be very sturdy. I would much rather see a ring instead.
