Thrunite TC15 Flashlight Review: 18650-Powered, Over 2000 Lumens

Purchase the TC15 here:

The TC15 from Thrunite is a nice-sized (for me) EDC light that gives over 2000 lumens of output with an 18650 behind it. For around $50, I think this is a pretty nice light and it’s certainly a bonus that you can charge it up with a USB.

  1. I think Thrunite really, and I mean REALLY needs to add an extra (perhaps Medium-High) mode to all of their lights. They make great products but they really need to improve their mode spacing. A jump from 250 to 1050 lumens is way too steep. An extra mode would also improve practical use and actual usable runtime.

  2. I carry the klarus XT2CR. It is just a little bigger but i like the user interface a lot better than the other lights ive had. It is around $60 to $70 but it is 1600 lumens, USB rechargable and comes with a 3600 mah 18650 battery. Ive had O’lights, Thrunites, eagtacks, lumintops and Wowtacs and out of all of them the Klarus lights are the ones i havent gotten rid of. You should give it a try.

    1. Klarus makes great products. I myself fancy Zebralight, and I’ve yet to find a true suitable replacement for the SC600w MK II L2 that I still EDC. The only light that came really close however was the Nitecore MH20. The MH20 is such a great little light. In regards to Zebralight though; my only gripe with them is that they don’t offer a rechargeable USB port on any of their lights at the moment.

  3. Perhaps you can compare the TC15 with the Olight S2R II. The price of the S2R II is higher of course, but beside the magnetic charger they are pretty close to me.

  4. IMO, an EDC light needs a tail switch, preferably including momentary on with partial press.

    Speaking of standardizing to 18650 batteries, what’s the top 18650 powered flashlights for mounting on a rifle?

    1. Thrunite TC10 V3 would be what I would go with. Unfortunately I can’t find a tape switch for it.
      Nitecore is a good place to look. They also have tape switches for their flashlights
