The new Thrunite TC20 V2 is powered by a 26650 5Ah battery and boasts 4,068 Lumens, 22,400 Candella, and a 299-meter throw. The only step down with this light is on Turbo mode that will last 220 seconds and drop from 4,068 lumens to 1,722 lumens, slightly fewer lumens than on high. On high, the light is 1,853 lumens and will last 122 minutes. That is impressive for a smaller light. The fairly large 26650 battery is charged via a USB C charging port on the side of the flashlight covered in rubber. Also on the side is the mode button that allows you to change through all the modes from Turbo to Firefly and also engage the strobe mode.
The OLIGHT Freyr is one of OLIGHT’s newer flashlights and is powered by a 21700 5Ah battery with 1,750 Lumens, 32,400 Candella, and a 360-meter throw. The Freyr is an RGB, Red-Green-Blue, flashlight that is charged via the Olight MCC, Magnetic Charging Cable, and has a side and tail switch. The side switch operates the color change and the tail switch operates the white light for tactical use. The Freyer will step down multiple times on high as it starts out at 1,750 lumens for 2 minutes and eases into 850 lumens for 150 minutes and lastly drops to 300 lumens for 28 minutes.
Both the OLIGHT and the Thrunite are IPX-8 rates and will take a 1.5-meter fall.
While it might seem that these two lights are very different, they do give you a good idea as to the difference between lumens and Candella. Sometimes we can get all caught up in the marketing and look at lumens and throw. If you look at the marketing on these two lights the Olighthas just a slightly longer throw than the Thurnite, but it would seem that the Thrunite is a brighter light. How? When we look at the lumens on the OLIGHT Freyer, they are pretty low at 1,750 compares to the Thrunite at 4,068. Lumens are the total amount of light a lighting apparatus emits. The higher the lumens value of a lighting device, the greater the area it illuminates. So we can see that the Thrunight is much more of a floodlight than the OLIGHT. When we compare the Candella from the OLIGHT at 32,400 and the Thrunite at 22,400, we see that the OLIGHT has a much more concentrated beam. Candella is the amount of light emitted by a lighting device in a particular direction.
When looking at flashlights, this information is not always given, but it is important to know what you are purchasing. If you need a long throw light, you want very high Candella numbers and if you want a floodlight, you want high lumen numbers.
