ThruNite TN36 LED Flashlight Review: Why I Use it?

ThruNite TN36 Review

I still recall that day like yesterday. This is the day my friend who lives in the UK sent me a birthday gift. And since she knows my undying love for tactical flashlights (she calls me flash-a-holic), she couldn’t find a better present than a tactical flashlight.

I remember that this flashlight operated on two CR123 batteries and had a xenon bulb which was brighter than what I was used to. It has a maximum of 162-lumen output.

The flashlight put the model I was using then to shame. Man!

I was on top of the world and had to make sure that all my pals saw what the real tactical flashlight is like. Because it was so small, I could easily carry it in my pocket.

That was almost ten years ago…

Looking back to those days and comparing my “first” tactical flashlight with what we’re using today, I’m fully convinced that the flashlights universe has changed for the better.

A xenon bulb has no place in the modern tactical lights and 162 lumens is probably the lowest setting in most of them. And as if that is not enough, they’re integrated with charging port to make them easy to recharge.

The Thrunite TN36 tactical flashlight I’m about to review in this post is a perfect case study of the modern flashlights. Its turbo mode outputs a whopping 6510 of ultra bright white LED light that is capable of blinding whoever stands in front of it.

Yes, I mean SIX thousand lumens! This flashlight is durable, highly reliable, compact, portable, and rechargeable- it has the most impressive features that I’ve ever seen.

Thrunite TN36 is the craziest flashlight that I’ve ever had in my life. It outputs such a bright light that I have no better words to describe it…

Let me explain to you what it’s like to handle a 6000-lumen flashlight. Assume you’ve it in your hands right now, right? Switch it on.

What do you see?

What do I see?

Everything in front of me lights up as if the sun has just come out. The light is so bright that it will burn your hand if you place it before the reflector.

The flashlight will turn your dark nights into days…

How do you gauge this light for your tactical operations?

Without a single doubt, it’s the light to get the job done.

Most Advanced and the Brightest CREE LED Technology

[easyazon_image align="center" height="500" identifier="B018VNMLA4" locale="US" src="" tag="huntspot08-20" width="500"]

I’m about to reveal to you a top secret that makes the flashlight throw such an insane brightness. Are you ready to hear it?


To achieve the ultra bright light output, the tactical light packs some special hardware under its hood. This hardware is THREE Cree MK-R LED bulbs. Believe it or not, I found out through my own research that this is the most advanced and brightest LED technology being distributed by CREE.

Look here:

There’s another awesome fact about the Cree MK-R LEDs. They have an extended lifespan of close to 20 years under regular use. And this means that time has come to say goodbye to LEDs that die after a week of use.

Compact and Portable Flashlight

This one caught me smiling! If it were you, how could you react to a flashlight that lights up so cool, yet it’s so compact and you can carry it with you wherever you want? If you’d cry, it would be tears of joy…

With a length of135.4mm and a light weight of 397g, I doubt if there’s a flashlight that could beat the compactness and portability of this flashlight (save for the keychain model).

Another reason to smile:

The box of ThruNite TN36 comes with a holster where you can easily slip the flashlight for convenient, easy carry.

Overheating Protection Capabilities

Intelligent Temperature Control (ITC) is the word here. ITC is simply a system that has been integrated into this flashlight to ensure that it does not get hot with continued use.

The overheating protection plays a vital role in preventing permanent damages that arise from overheating.

SIX Modes of Power Output

I personally tested all these modes to prove they existed, and I’m telling you they do.

What’s more?

I also timed their duration and today I’m glad to share with you my finding below:

  1. Strobes Mode: 6510 lumens for 137 minutes
  2. Turbo Mode: 6510 lumens for 95 minutes
  3. High Mode: 2500 lumens for 194 minutes
  4. Medium Mode: 850 lumens for 587 minutes
  5. Low Mode: 130 lumens for 54 hours
  6. Moonlight Mode: 2 lumens for 33 days.

As you can see, using the lower modes allows you to extend the runtime (useful if your battery is running low and you’re far from power source).


Now, the three powerful CREE LED bulbs are powered by 4 18650 Li-Ion rechargeable batteries.

ThruNite gives you these batteries together with the flashlight, under the same price. That the light is rechargeable, it makes it economical to use since the maintenance cost is reduced.

A charger is also included to allow you to recharge the battery easily and quickly.

Rugged Construction

This flashlight is smartly machined using the aluminum metal applied in airplane construction. Just holding the light in your hand will let you feel the sturdiness it bears. A high-quality finish is then applied all over the light to keep it free of corrosion, abrasion, and scratches.

Frequently Answer Questions

1. That Thrunite TN36 is rechargeable: does it come with a battery and charger?

Good question there... The flashlight is charged it 4x 186540 Li-Ion rechargeable batteries

2. Does this flashlight get hot after hours of use like the other flashlights do?

NO. Never! An Intelligent Temperature Control (ITC) is integrated into the flashlight to prevent possible overheating which might permanently damage a flashlight. I hope your question is well answered.

3. Does this flashlight support Strobes mode?

Yes, Strobes is also among the list of power modes options you can use.

Final Verdict

If you’d like to get the overwhelming experiences associated with the modern world tactical flashlights, ThruNite TN36 is what you need right now. This flashlight is superb right.

No, it’s crazily bright. It’s a monster of light that blinds anyone who dares look at its reflector. The different mode allows you to use the flashlight for a longer runtime when necessary. It fits those looking for a tactical flashlight that delivers maximum brightness in a compact form.
