Will sure do, :-) will also read more on the nichia emitters, all I know about those are that they are a bit pricey? I'm also looking for quality neutral lights as those are more favored when examining mucus linings and stuff of my patients. Thanks for the idea!

 

I took some comparative beam shots, between the Thrunite T10 and T10 2014 - Neutral, in this link (below):

(Please see Post #1915).

 

I would strongly recommend the Thrunite T10 (2014 Edition) - in Neutral tint.  I think it would serve you well, in your field.

 

Another possibility would be the Eagletac D25 AAA Mini - which is available in the Nichia 219 version, at about the same price as the Thrunite (Under $30.00 US).  The output won't be as high, but I don't think that would be an issue, if you're assessing patients.  The color accuracy on a 219 tint is incredible; but the neutral tint of the Thrunite lights is also very respectable (and it's a three-mode).

 

Here's a link to the technical spec's on the Eagletac D25 AAA Mini:

http://eagletac.com/...5aaa/specs.html

 

The out-the-front output rating on this light is only 68 lumens (It's not adjustable - just the one output); but you'd be surprised at how useful this can be, close-up, where color accuracy matters.

 

Here's a link to the Thrunite T10 (2014 Edition):

http://www.thrunite....runite-t10-new/

 

I'm a big fan of Eagletac lights.  I think their build quality and dependability are both excellent.  Eagletac make bigger lights that also have the Nichia 219 emitter, but they're considerably more expensive.

 

But if you're considering the Zebralight, I think the tints will be very similar, between, it, and the Thrunite, and the Zebralight is extremely user-programmable, aside from being plenty powerful, for a light of its size - which is why I want one :-)

Well I just ordered these 2 lights. One the Thrunite recommended and another for 4 bucks (any good as a light?) which I ordered to get over the free shipping line.

I don't own a Ti3; but I do have some other Thrunite lights, and I love them.

 

As for the other one, that one looks like a Sipik SK68 clone. There are lot of them around.  There was some discussion about those, and I posted this (in another forum):

Enjoy your new purchases :-)

Looks like I could do worse for 4 bucks than the Sipik clone. Thanks for the link to the other post.

No worries. 

 

The novelty of the zoom-able light may wear off after a little while; but for 4 bucks, you can't go wrong.

 

Enjoy :D

I just received my Thrunite T13 and wow.. wasn't prepared for the strobe and almost had a seizure. What a lot of kick for a little thingy.
Nice suggestion thanks.

They're addicting, aren't they?

 

The T20 measures in at about 3-18" long, and runs on a CR123, or RCR123 (16340), with a max output of 185 (?) lumens - pretty respectable.  Comes with diffuser wand, screw-mountable stainless clip, extra o-ring and switch, in a nice little metal presentation box.  I picked up the neutral white version:

It's the second light from the left, in between the two T10s.

 

Here it is, on Amazon:

Here's a link to the Thrunite site (at 20 bucks, it's a great deal):

http://www.thrunite.com/thrunite-t20/

 

You can find numerous video reviews on YouTube.

Enjoy! :D

Excellent thanks. Looking for a pocket carry along side the knife in the yet to be made "pocket holster".

Excellent thanks. Looking for a pocket carry along side the knife in the yet to be made "pocket holster".

 

You're most welcome!  I tend to reach for my L2P/Sportac, quite a bit; so I like it really handy, in a holster:

 

 

IMG_7603a.jpg

Olight holster, with L2P in the middle, with T10 cool white and neutral white on either side.

 

IMG_7605a.jpg

I like being able to access the light/activate it, without even removing it from the holster - usually for a quick walk down a path, or something. Leaves my hands free.

 

IMG_7606a.jpg

Mode changes can be made, on the newer T10, via half presses of the button, or twisty.  I personally prefer the button.

 

IMG_7962a.jpg

That L2P (the one laying down and all fired up) is one of my all-time favorite lights. Killer neutral Nichia 219  tint; nice and floody output. As hard as I tried (via camera settings) to get the most accurate depiction of the tint on that light, the pictures just doesn't do the tint, justice.  You just have to try one, for yourself, to appreciate the Nichia 219 tint/color rendition of whatever you're lighting with it.  It's incredible. It makes most cool white lights look anemic and fake/one-dimensional, especially at distances.

 

Don't get me wrong - I still like cool white lights, and I have quite a few of them; but there are times when you just need the more pleasant/accurate colors that this kind of tint is capable of revealing.

 

IMG_8005a.jpg

This is my all-time favorite shot of the Solarforce collection, that I've manged to take, so far.  The highly-used L2P is pictured in between the row of lights and the dual 18650 L2DE host, which houses the 1-mode version of that same drop-in.

Apologies I just saw this today! I'll be looking at these models. My current goal is to only have one flashlight to carry which I can use assessing patients and when it's pitch black. I think my best bet is the zebra light then, if only the olight S10r baton has a neutral/warm tint, I'm aware that the previous generations of it has a warm tint but I want that charging cradle D: haha

Thanks for these wonderful links :-)

Speaking of patients, when my SO had to have her throat checked and the doctor didn't have a light on her, my T10T came to the rescue. She didn't comment on the neutral tint, but she did say the titanium "looked expensive," haha!

These days, I tend to go with my trusty two:

 

uH6xzAy.jpg

Left - Zebralight SC600w Mk II L2 - left, front pocket

Right - Zebralight SC600w Mk III - holstered, behind my iphone, at about 4 o'clock

 

At work, it's just the Mk III, but I carry about a dozen in my pack, which is easy to get to.

I'm new to the flashlight game, and just picked up a Bushnell pro 100 lumen. I was wanting a keychain light, and settle for convience sake on finding a maglite solitaire from Walmart. However, once I saw the Bushnell and leveled with myself that it's no bigger than a sharpie, I decided to pick it up. Still getting used to it on my body. I carry it in my left front pocket (it has a clip), and my knife in the right pocket. If I have a knife without a clip I'd switch the light to my right and the knife in my left.

I'm already finding it handy at work when I'm looking in trailers, or walking to/from my car, as I work 2nd shift.
