The Neutron 2C V3 flashlight enhances safety by illuminating potential hazards and improving visibility in low-light conditions.


Weight86 g
Length125 mm
Body diameter25.4 mm
Head diameter25.4 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

This 86 g flashlight would generally be considered lightweight and easy to handle for most people. The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for. Aluminium body of Neutron 2C V3 is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments.

The HAIII coating can also enhance the visual appearance of the flashlight. It offers a uniform and attractive finish, often available in different colors, giving the flashlight a sleek and professional look. The Neutron 2C V3 flashlight is available in black.

Lenstoughtened AR coated glass
Switchelectronic side

Cree is widely regarded as a reputable LED manufacturer and has a track record of delivering high-quality and innovative lighting solutions. Warm white light is generally considered more comfortable and less harsh on the eyes compared to cool white light. The primary function of the smooth reflector (SMO) is to precisely focus and project the light emitted from the light source into a defined beam pattern. The smooth surface allows for greater reflectivity and light concentration, resulting in a more focused and intense beam with a longer throw distance.

This flashlight has an AR coated lens. This Anti-Reflective coating is a thin optical coating applied to the surface of the lens to minimize reflections and improve light transmission. The Neutron 2C V3 has electronic switch. The electronic switches may have a higher likelihood of standby drain compared to mechanical switches since they require a small amount of power for operation.


Flux1100 lm
Intensity14399 cd
Throw240 m
CD/LM factor13.09

With 1100 lm, the Neutron 2C V3 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. The Neutron 2C V3 flashlight with 14399 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.

The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The cd/lm factor (candela-to-lumen ratio) provides information about how concentrated or focused the light output of a light source is. A higher cd/lm ratio indicates that the light is more concentrated in a specific direction, while a lower ratio indicates a more diffused or spread-out light output.


Modes4 modes
Mode memoryyes
Ramping modeno

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The Neutron 2C V3 has mode memory. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again. The strobe function on the Neutron 2C V3 flashlight is a feature that produces a rapid and repetitive flashing of light. It is designed to create a disorienting or attention-grabbing effect.

The power source of the Neutron 2C V3 flashlight is 1 x 18650 or 1 x 18350 Li-Ion battery, providing reliable and long-lasting energy for optimal performance. Having a battery indicator on a flashlight is beneficial as it allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. It helps prevent unexpected power failures during critical situations and ensures that the flashlight is ready for use when needed.

This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. When the Neutron 2C V3 flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output to prevent further discharge. This helps to preserve the battery's capacity and prevent it from reaching a critically low voltage level.

Flashlights without thermal protection may be more susceptible to overheating under extreme conditions, such as prolonged high-output use or exposure to high ambient temperatures. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.


Package contents18650 battery
2 x spare o-rings
microUSB cable
nylon holster

By including a battery with the flashlight, you avoid the additional expense of purchasing a battery separately. The package includes a holster to safely store your flashlight. When the flashlight is clipped to a suitable location, it can be angled or positioned to provide hands-free illumination. The lanyard of Neutron 2C V3 helps protect the flashlight from accidental damage by preventing it from falling or hitting the ground. Having spare O-rings allows you to replace them as needed, ensuring that the flashlight maintains its water-tight seal and remains protected from moisture or water ingress.

The performance of the Thrunite Neutron 2C V3 flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
