Did this video help you?

xmunoz99: Why does mine go up to 3800 lumens? 

Joel Palaskar: Hi friend.. had a thought.. after watching ur review.. If the Turbo Mode is only going to last for 4 minutes before switching automatically to 1700 lumens... whats the use of it paying such a high price...should not one go for the nighteye or any other flashlight that is just around 2000 lumens and lasts atleast 30 to 45 minutes.. and if u know about any such flashlight pls.. suggest.. Thanks for educating on TM26..

Obviousz: Waiting for the TM36 review! (: 

italomagic2: Patriot, you are a true inspiration for people going through mid-life crisis....loool Thanks to you I'm now a flashlight fanatic and have a new disease.and can proudly say I own a Fenix RC40 for long range which is absolutely mind boggling and just bought the latest Nitecore TM26 3800 Lumens baby for a mixture of Throw and Flood. They are both amazing!! I think it's now time for a real Flood light and I have the Olight SR96 in my sights. This should meet all my needs and as you can see from my little stash the size of the lights doesn't matter to me. What do you think??

Bill Boyd: I got this light at B&H for $259.99 with no tax and free shipping. This light is the best by fare. You had the best review of all the videos I watched on YouTube. Thanks

italomagic2: Hey Patriot, as I just bought the updated Nitecore TM26 3800 lumens baby. How would both the throw and flood compare to the larger Olight SR96? Could we please have a comparison when you get your hands on the new Nitecore?

Glenn Martin: Just ordered the latest 3800 lumen version. Just wanted to thank you for your absolutely fantastic reviews! I'm a big fan my friend!

italomagic2: The Turbo Mode or 3500 Lumens Level 5 as I like to call it, not being part of the normal sequence mode and that it kicks down to Level 4 at 1700 Lumens after only 4min are the only things I'd like to see addressed by Nitecore. Being so compact in comparison to its power output results in the head not having enough surface area to dissapate the heat. But hey it is great for what it is! Just not for long Search and Rescue. On another topic thanks to you I just bought an RC40! Absolutely amazing!!

behemothinferno: Very nice review and I agree with all the points you've mentioned. Could you please test the displayed voltage when the light is off (if possible) or on the 3 lumen mode and compare it to the actual reading of a decent digital multimeter? I'd like to know how accurate the readings are. Thanks!

italomagic2: Can't wait for a review of the NEW updated and revised 3800 LumensTM26 recently announced on Nitecores website! The only thing I would have preferred is for the level 5 or Turbo Mode to have been part of the normal sequence. Otherwise love it!

killerdoc007: Just wanted to say thanks again...finally got my own and this is definitely my new favorite light...see you on CPF

Patriot36: oh ok. Nope, just regular output until step down. :)

Patriot36: The ones made by Sanyo called Eneloop are outstanding and fairly inexpensive at Costco.

Patriot36: Probably not, I'm a little more into the EA4 however, they're both good lights.

scooter17568: Great review. Love that interface. Looks like I could eventually figure it out if I had put it away for a year and had to grab and go. I have some earlier Nitecores that every time I need to use more than the basic high mode, I have to pullout the book and study the the twists and pushes.

Patriot36: Either, both are great lights. TK75 is probably a higher value.

Half Hearted Prepper: Great review! As always well thought out.

eightballrj: Right I see what you mean. But the video seemed to show it increase in brightness considerably a half second before it stepped down the first time.

Patriot36: I do, yes but everyone has different needs. The TM26 is their most technically up to date light though.

David Lönnberg: Fantastic review! This flashlight is on the top of my wishlist! Thanks!

Patriot36: yeah...love it so far!

Patriot36: None of them do well but NiMH cells for your EA4 are about as safe as you can get. The heat will take its toll over a couple of seasons though but if you cant carry the light inside with you, there aren't many options.

Patriot36: Thanks Razor! I'm glad it was helpful. I know, I know..lol. Such much to cover, so little time.

mozezfreek777: well, most of them still work I only use 1 though they're all edc varity for patrolling I got myself a pelican 8060 and stuck with it

kebindesu: perfect, ty!

João Paulo Carvalho: This or fenix tk75?

Patriot36: Typically, those with large reflectors. A good example would be the sr95UT. However smaller lights with several emitters and reflectors can achieve reasonable throw as well as with the Fenix TK75.

hypervigilance1: sweet!

kingsniper88: Great video.. I had a quick question. Which lights are great for throw?

Peter Hyatt: It comes with 2300 mAh Nitecore batteries. Is this too weak?

davcharest7: nitecore tm26 is less big, extremely bright, a lot of light in a little flashlight, very good in my hands. Seriously don't doubt and go for TM26.

Patriot36: I'll be reviewing that light as well with comparisons to the TK75 mainly.

Patriot36: Wow, thanks PW! I'm glad it was helpful because it was a hard one to get through...lol. Thanks for watching!

Patriot36: Thanks Peter! I appreciate the encouragement. Especially after finishing a "nut buster" review. Cheers buddy!

rick hunter: i know small lights are great for portability but I would love it if they had a version of it running on two 32650s... It would have close to twice the runtime plus a more traditional flashlight shape...I'll keep waiting ....

Wandering Beast: no pocket clip or key ring? very cool, might have to add it to my SAR wish list for this year

Klpcuda1: Yeah I think I would forget it at some point but thanks for the tips ill get me some of those cells

Patriot36: "better" no, just different but both are very good quality cells.

tensiga2: Do you think that this is worth getting over the TM 15?

Patriot36: Thanks Jaytee! Have fun with it buddy! It will probably grow to be a favorite!

Paaulie Wog: Wow this is awesome to see this review. I only just heard about this light and am happy to see you did the review on it because you do such great, in depth reviews. I should probably stop typing and watch the video. lol

John Hovan: Thank you! I own an SR90 and wanted to see if it would be worth upgrading to this light. From your comments I don't know. Is this a new generation or just a different? In other words, is this TM26 significantly better than an SR90 or just slightly better? The SR90 rocks, but may not throw as wide a beam. Thanks!

Jaytee1o4: Awesome review! I ordered mine the other day can't wait to get it!

TheMrjogas: Niteye or nitecore u recommend?

toadstkr: Kind of bulky and big for my system but would be great for maybe car or home use

phrankus2009: I just ordered an EA4 Pioneer (4x AA @860lm) for ~$53 deliverd ... Seemed fairly practical.

Patriot36: Thanks! I'm glad that it was helpful RZ!

TheMrjogas: I get already tm26 :) using jetbeam 3100x4

eltenda fabrizio: pretty cool..

STRIKER520: The EA4 is amazing I had to get it when looking on battery junction for a new flashlight. If you use the coupon code cpf2012 it will only cost $66.39 and its free shipping.
