I still think this flashlight is too bright, and yes I do mean in that in a bad way. Just like the original TA-50, this is a great overall flashlight and I agree it has improved with the warmer diode, but it's still so overpoweringly bright on Turbo! I don't know how people use it! Yes, I recommend it, but please expand the beam a bit!
This replaced my streamlight and I absolutely love it. It basically has the performance of the HP4 condensed into a key fob sized flashlight. Gets a bit warm.
These warm diodes are getting harder and harder to find so you can bet I was ecstatic when I saw the new ta50 used the nichia LED. Much better light quality, in my opinion. I was getting real tired of these junky looking blinding blue lights you find all over amazon.
Yes, it's waterproof, and it's also much more drop resistant than I expected. Check my youtube channel I ran it over with my forklift and the thing still works. ROCK ON, this flashlight is great.
Husband loves it. I don't know much about flashlights but he can't seem to put the damn thing down so kudos from a happy wife!
This flashlight changed everything I thought I knew about lumens. Here I am looking at Amazon listings of 5000+ lumen flashlights thinking "wow, why would I buy this TA-50?". Boy am I glad I did because now I know they were all lying! This is hands down the BRIGHTEST flashlight I have ever owned...and the color quality is amazing. Just get this. It's awesome in every sense of the word.
One of my top five favorite gadgets�no question about it. The build quality is superb and much better than the previous generation TA-50. I love the new diode too�they are spot on with this 5000 Kelvin color temperature. Super bright
This flashlight is the best one I have every had. I leave it plugged into my USB and have had zero problems with it. Power went out at the house not to long ago and I was able to leave this little thing on, standing in the middle if the floor and it lit the room up so well we played cards. The light, on its highest setting, does get hot but manageable. I will tell you now, this is the best rechargeable flash light you could ever buy. I can not put into how bright this light is. It is truly blinding.
Wow, this thing is bright. Nice change of pace from all the usual tactical flashlight scams out there. Great build quality, good heavy feel, nice rechargeable battery, and super bright�
