Did this video help you?

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 ....

beast12101: 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.

Patriot36: It doesn't. Totally different lights. It would have more in common with the TK75 than the TM26.

eightballrj: Patriot, what happens just before it steps down to L4 brightness at 60°C? It looks like it increases in brightness significantly above L5.

Kuro Wanna: I love the ability to charge on the go. This will be useful if I want to use this for vdography with reflective umbrealla. Is it possible to turn this on a long period of time while charging? Great review.

Rzombie23: Awesome review!! Now i want one even more. I got an EA4 recently and you showing how shutter switch works to get turbo from the daily modes was helpful.

Patriot36: I think it would be overkill. You could get away with a single 900L 18650 light like a PD35, Zebralight SC600 or an SRT6.

cilangkapdotcom: from sydney....great review mate....i'll buy one of this thanks

Patriot36: While I can appreciate your preferences, since we all have them, the kind of light you describe will likely never be produced by any of the mainstream manufacturers. First, you're in the small minority of people who still prefer the toilet plunger format of the old Maglite's. Nothing wrong with that but it's a minority preference. 2nd the 18650 is the gold standard with regards to todays lights, made more so by steadily increasing capacity and discharge rates. The 32650 is relatively obscure.

Patriot36: Yeah, pretty noticeable. It's about 3x the throw and 75% more output.

hypervigilance1: I have book marked their page they have some good stuff im waiting on a review of the upcoming Fenix RC40 before i decide on my next high end light,but yea that nitecore is amazing and i love it ! it might just be my next light.

RaZoRChak: U really did a great job on this review and answered all my questions. Very thorough with all aspects and made me even more interested to purchase one, many thanks for the review... Keep up with the good job (but really try to make it a bit shorter lol) :D
