Video demonstration of the ThruNite TN50 flashlight

Here is a video from ThruNite, showing off the TN50 and its various brightness settings. The floodlight on this thing is impressive, illuminating everything in the near vicinity. Personally, I prefer floodlights while doing night hiking so that I can see everything that’s around me, like moose lurking in the forest.

Product summary with current price and store page link

Overall a very good flashlight with a bright light that floods the area, turning night into day. For hiking, you will probably find the medium output with 1157 lumens to be bright enough, giving a runtime of 11 hours. Obviously the higher settings are cool, but they will eat up the battery faster and have a limited runtime before the overheating prevention kicks in and reduces the output until it cools down. Impact-resistant to 1 meter and IPX8 water-resistant lets you use the torch in any weather, rain and snow won’t be a problem
