The ThruNite Scorpion combines two recent technological advances in the flashlight world. First, it uses the new CREE XM-L LED, which is capable of putting out much more light than previous LED’s. Second, the Scorpion uses a rotary switch that allows the user to choose between brightnesses by twisting a ring on the back of the light. The rotary switch is arguably the most intuitive way to operate a flashlight and will be seen on more and more lights as time goes on.
Thanks to the XM-L the Scorpion maxes out at 460 lumens while having a nice floody beam that lights up a wide area. The larger XM-L LED allows the beam to be less concentrated while still giving you tons of light. The Scorpion is powered by either 2 CR123 primaries or 1 18650 rechargeable lithium battery.
Unfortunately, the Scorpion was a limited production item and we are all sold out. Don’t lose hope, ThruNite will inevitably come out with something as good or better in the neat future.
