djmocok: Holycrap Nitecore TM26 looks so bad ass ! Looks like a futuristic weapon
capable of melting you with the beam
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
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...
SteamCatapulter: Very good review. All beam shot reviews should be like this. Thanks man.
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.
el sslayerr: tk is so focused. i love it. thanks patriot.
hellenismosadventure: Great and professional review!!!
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!
akguy4u99: tk-75 is better , might be little bigger but spill and long renge really
italomagic2: Could we have a comparison between the Nitecore TM26 vs Fenix TK75 vs
Olight SR96. The winner will get my cash!!
SAVAGE308SNIPER: Great video, and etter than most on YouTube.
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
bullboo1: Nice video!
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
beast12101: 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
Patriot36: ...understandable with regards to running two. Is the H600 not working out
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
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
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.
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.
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.
josh bonas: Which of these is brightest?
MRiMATE: Hello thank you so mouch for your reviews youmake the a compare very easy
and clear i want to say thanks from kuwait
llx2o1: I have a new Nitecore TM26 with 4x 18650b Protected 3400mah batteries and
original accessories for sale. All goes for 310 shipping included.
italomagic2: Thanks so much for this review. You've done a great job on this one. One of
the best I've seen on beam shots. That TM26 is extremely impressive but
geez that throw on the TK75 is crazy. Makes it so hard to choose i'll have
both thanks !! Where is the best place to buy one of these....I'm in
MrPaul3388: Thanks for your great video. I am also own a TM 11, I like the TM 26 can
shine into a hot spot and spills at the same time. :)
Patriot36: The TM26's shipping are all CW, they don't make a NW or Warm version yet.
Based off that, you be the judge. I think the TM15 is overly cool and
received many complaints when first released.
Patriot36: Not if you want to go small. The TK75 is like carrying 3 soda cans in my
backpack and a lot of the times, I only need to see a hundred yards down a
trail or for taking the dog for a walk. Small is sweet!
ManOfMany Thingz: way to much money!!!!! wow...nice video an flashlights ..
Urban Outback: Good comparison video Patriot. We sell all types of these flashlights and
as always horses for courses as they say. TM26 definitely has best spill
but the TK 75 is the overall winner we believe. It still has good spill but
vastly superior range despite many less lumens at its disposal. Most people
seem to crave maximum range these days. The number 1 question we field from
our customers is "What flashlight shines the furthest". Still the 4 D cell
TK70 outshines them all if you have one of those.
