If you’ve ever wanted to make your already insanely bright ThruNite Scorpion even brighter, then you’re in luck. The ThruNite Turbohead has a bigger, smooth reflector which gives you much more throw and a more concentrated beam. The overall output will be the same, but the performance at long distances will be greatly improved. The Turbohead is a tad bit bigger than the default head, so keep that in mind if size is of great importance to you. The Turbohead is 100% drop in. There are no modifications needed to use the turbohead on your ThruNite Scorpion.
Words are great, but video is always better. Check out the video below and see just how big of a difference the turbohead makes!
The world of high end, high output flashlights can be sort of overwhelming. There are a ton of options which can make it very difficult to choose the right light for you when the time comes. To remedy this problem we do a flashlight comparison series using all of the biggest and brightest tactical flashlights available at that time. Not only do these videos give you a good idea of how well each light performs, it also provides a nice side by side comparison of each beam. There are 3 targets set up at 100, 200, and 300 yards to give you an idea of how far each beam travels. These comparison videos are a great way to get a feel for how all of the technical jargon translates into real world use. Clear your schedule and check out the vids, there are a lot of them!
The ThruNite Scorpion v2 is a super high output flashlight which uses the new CREE XM-L LED. While the v2 version of the light is sold out now, we do still sell the regular Scorpion which also uses the XM-L emitter.
The Scorpion is an every day carry light that has the guts of a full blown search light. Using two CR123 batteries and the XM-L emitter the Scorpion x2 can put out a max of 750 lumens. While that is impressive in itself, the Scorpion v2 isn’t a one trick pony. The unique interface which the Scorpion uses is another reason these lights are so popular. Using a tail clicky and rotary switch the Scorpion v2 can ramp from the max output of 750 lumens all the way down to .1 lumens.
The Scorpion is a very popular light, so be on the look out for them on the site. Snag one when the chance presents itself!
The ThruNite Catapult v3 is a mega output torch with a neutral tint LED. The Catapult v3 still utilizes the CREE XM-L LED, but instead of having the normal cool tint that most LEDS have, this torch has a whiter tint which has more accurate color representation.
The neutral version has a little less output than the cool white version, but any version of the Catapult v3 will have a crazy amount of output. Unfortunately, ThruNite only made a limited number of these lights. Both the cool and neutral tint versions of the Catapult v3 are already sold out. While you can’t get this exact light anymore, we do stock many awesome ThruNite lights which you can choose from!
The new CREE XM-L LED allows for much higher output than previous versions of LED emitters. Big lights with deep reflectors are great at concentrating all of that light into a tight beam to get maximum distance and illumination. A light that has a concentrated beam that goes the distance is called a “thrower.” We took 3 of the newest XM-L throwers and did a head to head comparison test to give you an idea of just how well these lights perform. All 3 of these lights are incredible performers, so no matter which torch you choose you will be confident that you are getting one of the brightest lights available today.
The new CREE XM-L LED is a breakthrough in the flashlight world. The XM-L is a bigger LED which puts out a higher volume of light than previous version LED’s.
To get a good benchmark of what to expect from different lights which utilize the XM-L, we did a comparison video using 4 different torches which feature that LED. The beams are all different even though all 4 lights use the same LED. Many factors play a part in determining how the beam looks, so comparison videos like the one below are a valuable tool which allows you to choose which light is best for you.
The ThruNite Catapult v3 is a super thrower that utilizes the new CREE XM-L LED.
ThruNite is known for making big throwers and the v3 is no exception. Using the larger XM-L LED the v3 is able to put out 780 lumens while having enough throw to light up objects hundreds of yards away. The quality in manufacturing is improved with this version insuring that all of the parts mate together nicely with no play. The light is operated with a simple switch located on the tail cap, and brightness modes are chosen by tightening or loosening the head of the light.
Unfortunately we have been sold out of this particular light for a while now. It is just a matter of time before ThruNite comes out with something even bigger and badder, so keep your eyes peeled!
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.
If you’ve ever wanted to see some of the highest output lights all in one video then you are in luck. While in Las Vegas for SHOT Show 2011, Going Gear did a comparison video of the best throwers on the market.
Set in the darkness of the desert, this comparison video will give you an idea of just how all of these mega output lights stack up against each other. Even if you’re not looking to buy an extreme output light at the moment, this video is still worth watching for entertainment value alone. Press play and enjoy the lumens!
The Neutron series is ThruNite’s first foray into small high output flashlights. Producing mostly large lights means that ThruNite was all but excluded from the EDC world. The Neutron changes that completely.
The 1C and 2C Neutron’s are the same as the AA versions, except that they use the CR123 lithium power cell. The CR123 battery allows the light to have a smaller overall size while also providing a longer run time and higher output. Operation is the same as the other Neutrons. A reverse switch on the tail cap allows the user to cycle through the 5 different output modes. Turbo mode is accessible by pressing the switch on and tightening the bezel. The XM-L LED gives the Neutron a floody beam which is perfect for EDC tasks.
Watch the video below and you’ll understand why we like this light so much.
