It used to be that if you wanted to EDC a light that had serious output, you had to sacrifice portability and convenience for larger size and weight. But with advances in LED emitter and battery technology, that's a trade off that you no longer have to make. Case in point: the new ThruNite T1. It boasts monster performance with its 1500 lumen output, modern conveniences like USB-recharging and variable brightness, and effortless portability with multiple carry options. Best of all, this pocket powerhouse doesn't come with a premium price tag, making it a compelling value in the EDC flashlight market.

With its Cree XHP-50 LED module, the ThruNite T1 can put out a maximum of 1500 lumens out the front for three minutes, powered off its single included 1100mAh 18350 battery. The turbo mode gives you a relatively wide beam, illuminating 335 feet in front of you in a neutral white light that helps you to identify things in the distance with ease. With its easy single button operation, you can swiftly change between that turbo mode and more efficient options, going all the way down to a 'firefly' economy mode that brings the output down to a single lumen for an estimated total runtime of 14 days. And the best part is that while there are pre-set high and low modes, the light gives you the ability to fine tune the exact output you need with a stepless dimming function. For emergency use, there's also a strobe beam accessed by triple clicking the button in rapid succession. And when your battery starts getting low, its button switch's built-in battery indicator lights up to notify you. The good news is that the T1 is USB-rechargeable, letting you top off the battery with power at home or on the go without complicated proprietary chargers or spare batteries to swap.

For a light that has this much power and versatility, it's astounding that it's only 2.73” in length. You can easily conceal it in your hand or in your pockets, and it's lightweight too at just 45 grams without the battery. This small and light design makes it a pleasure to use, even for extended periods. And if you take it outdoors out on a hike, you'll appreciate its IPX-8 water resistance. Its aircraft-grade aluminum body can also take a few hits, while a magnetic tailcap in the rear lets you mount it to some metal surfaces for hands-free lighting.

Perhaps the best part of the ThruNite T1 is that for all of its utility, it's available right now at a seriously accessible price. And that, combined with its rich feature set and immense portability, makes it a compelling choice to be your new everyday carry flashlight.

What about the heating at full output? and how long does the full output last?
Chris ·
Awesome light! Great output, fair price...LOVE that it uses an 18350. But for the love of Pete, stop implementing Micro USB on newer lights!!! I feel like a broken record, but please “USB C all the things” flashlight manufacturers! I would buy this in a heartbeat if it implemented Type-C instead of Micro.

Don't hold your breath. The cell phone industry has taken forever to implement USB-C, and it's a much larger business.

Micro USB boards are just way cheaper than type-c at the moment. Helps keep these type of lights within the budget light territory. USB-C will happen eventually.. haha
