Did this video help you?

iena71: This is an excellent review (in my humble opinion the best, after watching a lot of others, and owning a Fenix TK75 and a Nitecore TM26)! Will you do one of TM36? There are some bad advices concerning the sling carry system, but it seems the beam distance of over 1000 meters is outstanding...

djmocok: Holycrap Nitecore TM26 looks so bad ass ! Looks like a futuristic weapon capable of melting you with the beam

Mappi75: Thanks for the review! I already own the TK75 (2600) and think about getting the Nitcore TM26 or the Lupine TL2. I cant decide i like throwers and flooders. I like that TM26 has more different lumens "programs". The Lupine is really small and light and looks better in my opinion, but the price... 

SteamCatapulter: Very good review. All beam shot reviews should be like this. Thanks man. 

Obviousz: The Led Lenser x21r.2 is pretty much all those lights combined. I'd prefer that ^^

Lorenzo Cordero: What are your thoughts/opinions about using Panasonic 18650b flat top unprotected cells with the extension tube for the Fenix tk75? Is it safe, not recommended? I've read on the specification manual that it had circuit protection for batteries built in to the flashlight. I'm curious to know as I'm relatively new on how to use and manage 18650 cells. Should I not be doing it, is it dangerous? A quality orbtronic protected 3400 cells cost twice as much as the unprotected Panasonic 18650b flat top unprotected cells. That's why I opt for the latter. 

SAVAGE308SNIPER: Great video, and etter than most on YouTube.

terratec1001: @40s onwards, notice how the blink rate timing (it appears to be 2 seconds on, 2 seconds off) of the blue standby light on the Nitecores are completely different. They eventually sync (both on) then go out of sync again.

Grant Ski: Great review. TK75 for me. Cheers!

SAVAGE308SNIPER: Great video, and etter than most on YouTube.

el sslayerr: tk is so focused. i love it. thanks patriot.

hellenismosadventure: Great and professional review!!! 

John Baker: Hey have you compared the new tk75 with 2900 lumens or the tm26 with 3800 lumens? Just curious to know how much better if any they are vs these older models.

akguy4u99: tk-75 is better , might be little bigger but spill and long renge really matter.

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!

italomagic2: Could we have a comparison between the Nitecore TM26 vs Fenix TK75 vs Olight SR96. The winner will get my cash!!

bullboo1: Nice video!

Neo Anderson: мммляяяять да с такими фонарями даже по подвалу ходить не интересно )))жесть 

Ricardo Kabal: excelente.

rbolo29 .: Hexagonal reflectors would work better.

ابن الجنوب العربي جنوبي: Which one is better tk75 or tk70 or tm26. ?? I mean for throwing far. I wanna buy on I live in mountain ?

ابن الجنوب العربي جنوبي: Do u know if there better flashlight throw ,,, I mean better than tk70 or75. Wat u think about rc 40. I need one bright and throwing far. Plz give me advice thank u

Wandering Beast: h600 is always in my pocket its my camp/backup light, but its not always possible to recharge the Li-Ions, so I try to stay with AA for my dedicated helmet light. It is temping to stay with 18650 and get the warm tint h600, or even the ST6nw, looking for more outdoor shots of the sx5 on CPF.

Thru Nite: Nice review video.I hope you've heard about ThruNite.

Patriot36: Im not sure what you're asking. If you're asking how often I need a light that will work for 90 yards or more, quite often. Hope that helps.

TheVVVman: Thanks for the awesome review patriot36, great detail and very well produced. I like how you compare lights in the same class and do practical test to give your viewers an idea of what best suits them. Well done. Your reviews really helped me to decide which light was my next purchase which is the TM26. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Adam lancaster: how often do you need a 90 yard light? that TM's are superior

Patriot36: Yes, no, not without cells. Correct. Lower temps and higher airflow, lower than the temperature of the light will extend turbo time. You got it bud.

ihikearound: Enjoyed the light comparison. Like the fact you explain and demonstrate each light capabilities. I see what you mean, depending on POU each light can serve a specific roll. In dense tree areas TM26 would work well. low tree areas TK75. This is were run times I think would make the difference as well.

Patriot36: ...understandable with regards to running two. Is the H600 not working out for you?

micheal johnson: The Fenix TK75 is the best light in terms of value for money. I agree that the nitecore TM26 is more compact but its twice the price, and has less throw.

Patriot36: With regards to your 2nd sentence, you've established your OWN parameters of importance so just keep in mind that not everyone values the exact same thing in a light or beam. Obviously there are some who might need / prefer / like, the extra lumens, smaller size, OLED display, lock out, etc. A floody beam is preferred by cavers and urban explorers.

copperhound1: Very nice review, actually gave me a fair comparison. I'm leaning towards a tk75 & the newer model basts 2900 lumens, have you tried that yet?

af1966: It is not half the price. If comparing by just amazon.com, the TK75 is $199 and the TM26 is $345. How does that come out to half the price ? And if you buy on EBay.com, the prices are even lower.

Patriot36: Of course, but that has nothing to do with WHITE BALANCE COMPENSATION. You're getting your terms mixed up. You're referring to EXPOSURE. As mentioned at the powerline video, my camera has no way to lock the video exposure. However, benefits or handicaps neither when both beam are run simultaneously. Therefore the results are useable and helpful.

davcharest7: Try if possible to compare the sames flashlights with Skyray Kung M4 4x cree T6, if possible, the M4 is only 45$us on ebay, i have this flaslight for the price i'm very impressionned with the brightness of this flashlight. I have the TM26 on the road... Cheers!

archivalbackup: Two questions - Can the light be operated while the charger is connected? Could the light be operated from AC alone? If you have enough air flow over the light, or are using it in cold weather, will the turbo runtime be extended past the 4-5 minutes observed in one of your review videos? Thanks Patriot, your videos are very informative.

MarsSheep: Your camera is doing white balance compensation so this corporation is not quite accurate...

Patriot36: After compression and upload, that could be the case, although if I tilt my screen angle and up the brightness, I can see them. Hopefully the closer range shots will suffice.

upright bassmatt: Pretty nice light.You can order directly from China for about 260$ so it's a lot more affordable price. However I do own a Fenix TK75 flashlight and I love wide beam and hot spot in the same light throw.Unfortunately with TM26 it's a lot more like a tunnel vision.Plenty of lumens but too narrow throw IMHO.TK75 is unbeatable for me as a multi task thrower and still the number 1 in a compact size category for powerful flashlights.I much prefer two independent switches rather than that shutter way

jayrush01: its the best light out of all of them, freak what what someone needs or their preferences.. trust me just get a tk75 ;)

Patriot36: That's a really great idea! I've been looking for a place like that but I don't have anything conveniently located. I like how you think though! You're one of the guys who 'gets' it!

MarsSheep: Did you notice how those lights at the building became brighter when you turn off both flashlights -> 07:35 and then dimmed again when you turned on TK75 just watch that wall light at the right side of the screen (building)... Also noticeable @ 06:04, 08:07, 08:07, 08:58 ...

Patriot36: Sure, I'll get a vid out there on that one for ya. It should be a nice small light but it 3 x 14500's comes up a bit short in watt/hours compared to the 4 x Eneloops. Also as this stage it's coming up over 100L short of the EA4 in output with regards to ANSI lumens. Some of the figures showing up on the forums are LED lumens. Is all of this important? In practical terms, probably not. If it gets the job done and the owner likes it...good enough! It will be smaller & wont have ea4 throw.

SeanRivaPhotography: How would you rate these against the o-lights sr90, 95?

Patriot36: the tk70 throws best, but I don't particularly like the light. TK75 would be my choice.

hypervigilance1: great comparison im loving that TM26 cant wait to see the Fenix RC40, im really loving the size of the nitecore TM26.

Cr0cket20: Wow, after looking at the lineup, flashlights have come a long way since the old Mag light. I remember when that was the bomb (did I just say the bomb?). Interesting how technology has advanced. Wonder what an additional 20 years will bring.

Patriot36: The fact that it doesn't throw as well doesn't necessarily mean that it has less value. Also, it's not really twice the price about $350. The TM26 has a better user interface, a lockout, battery voltage monitoring with estimated run, a lower low mode, and it displaces half the volume of the TK75. I own both and can say that the size factor makes it the one to grab for 90% of my large light needs. If all one needs is throw THEN the TK75 could be valued higher. Depends on needs.
