$39.19
+24 Deal Score
14,739 Views
Thrunite Direct via Amazon [amazon.com] is discounting its TC12 V2 flashlight by 30% in both cool white (cw [amazon.com]) and neutral white (nw [amazon.com]) flavors until July 21.

Coupon code: 30TC12V2
Brings the price down from $56 to $39 and change (they previously had a 10% selectable coupon on the page too).

For the price, it comes with a quality 18650 cell and built-in charging via micro USB on the flashlight itself so you can get lithium power without much equipment investment beyond what you already have lying around for old cell phones.

This flashlight is well reviewed on Amazon at 4.3/5 from 680 ratings.

Some more in depth reviews available on BLF [budgetlightforum.com] and across the web from a couple years back.

That's still an awful lot of money for a no-name brand Chinese flashlight.

Yeah but it seems like they are all variations of the same no name Chinese flashlights. Not sure where the real quality is.
Thrunite isn't a no name in the scene. Pretty well established, they do their own engineering and manufacture as well. This isn't a white label product.

Thrunite is actually recommended by the Wirecutter: https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutte...lashlight/
(although this model is more capable than the model they recommend).

If you want to buy a flashlight that isn't made in China, unfortunately, you'll have to go with wildly outdated (Maglite), outdated and overpriced (Surefire) or $300+ (HDS and other low-volume customs). Even then, the components will be made in China, because that's where most electronics manufacturing is done.

The flashlight subreddit recommends this TC12 in Neutral White: https://www.reddit.com/r/flashlig..._solstice/

However, a Wurkkos FC11 is likely as good for most use and has better color rendering, I bought one for under $30 a couple weeks ago and have been impressed.

Solid company, they stand by their products. High end Chinese flashlights. Not top of the line but a solid value

Yes, Wowtac is Thrunite's lower line

Yes, flashlight companies are electronics companies which sadly means it is nearly impossible to find any that are completely manufactured in the USA.

What makes you say Maglites and Surefire are outdated? I haven't used either in decades.

Streamlight, which I do love, is an American company that makes great products. Most of their stuff is also made overseas with some products being assembled in the USA. They can also be expensive, but they are great products with excellent customer service and warranty.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Thrunite is one of the best.

Their economy brand, Wowtac, has a model W30 that you can't buy for less than $650 on eBay.... used...

This has been my daily carry light for about 2 years now. We also have bought some of the wowtac lights. They are very similar, the main difference is access to a firefly mode. If you don't need a firefly mode I would probably pick up the wowtac for $24 or whatever they cost.

These are one of the top recommended lights on r/flashlight for what that's worth to people.

I have the wowtec neutral white.

Another big difference is that the microusb charging slot is in the battery on the wowtec. You need to remove the battery to charge it.

This flashlight allows you to charge the battery without removing it.

Is that + firefly mode worth paying $39 over 22? I am going to pick up a thrunite.
