  1. K.I.S.S. achieved 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th May 2020

    The user interface is so easy to work with. It's intuitive with a very wide and usable range from moonlight (I use this at night so as not to wake anyone up or bang into things) to 400+ lumens using a 14500 Li-ion battery. I love the flexibility to use AA alkaline or nimh rechargeable too. It seem seems very solid and well-built. I got the neutral white version as that is my temperature preference.

  2. Great light 5 Star Review

  3. Archer 1A 3V 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Mar 2020

    I'm completely satisfied with this small yet powerful flashlight.... I use a rechargeable 14500 battery in it and the output is impressive. The quality of this little Flashlight is apparent.... As is the workmanship... Thru-nite has hit another homerun.... I highly recommend this beauty.

  4. My second 1A V3. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Nov 2019

    As the title implies this is my 2nd 1a v3. I've carried one for 4+ years on a daily basis. Used it every night on fire fly mode on bathroom trips and at higher lumens on nightly walks. Couldn't be happier with this flashlight.

  5. Good pocket light 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2019

    Good pocket light. Little pricy for such a small light but good that it runs on standard AA batteries. Exceptional Thrunite quality as expected.

  6. Great flashlight 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2018

    This flashlight is great, bright and compact just like I expected it to be. The only downside to ordering this product was the customer service and shipping. It took 17 working days, so two and a half weeks for the flashlight to arrive (I live in the EU). After ordering the product I waited 7 working days and I still had not gotten a notice about my product being shipped. When I wrote to the customer service asking nicely, what has happened to my package and when will it be shipped out, the customer service provider was very harsh and rather rude in tone and said my product was shipped and it will arrive on a certain date. It arrived a week later after promised. I am happy it finally arrived and the flashlight itself is great. The customer service and shipping were very unpleasant. It would have been completely fine if I was notified the proper date and had a polite answer to my question.

  7. Handy little light 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jan 2018

    Nice little light easy to carry everyday like that your brightness setting stays like the no tool reversable pocket clip its light enough to clip to the brim of a ball cap that it runs on AA batteries is one of the big reasons i got this particular model i would recomend this to anyone looking for a small cary light

  8. Fantastic! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Dec 2017

    I've carried, and used my Archer 1A V3 every day for the past 9 months and Love It! It's reliable, durable and the battery seems to last forever! I love the that it takes the easy to find AA and I'm only on my second battery in 2017!

  9. Awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2017

    This is one of the most durable, brightest flashlights on the market. I own three and love them all. Keep 1 in each car and 1 at the front door.

  10. Great for EDC! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2017

    The Archer 1A V3 is the second light I've bought and as always, another great purchase. I like the fact it uses AA batteries, tactical rear push on/off, and the clip works just fine for me. The reason for 4 stars is that I wish it were brighter, maybe 400lumens. Still a good light and would recommend buying one.

  11. warranty 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Aug 2017

    This is a very good flashlight for what I needed (hunting). However the life expectancy really sucks. For no reason whatsoever my flashlight quit working, doesn't have a very good warranty policy. Barely used flashlight at intermittent times went bad in a surprisingly short period of use.

  12. Great light. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    Seems to be well made and durable. Nice beam pattern. Neutral tint is easy on the eyes. Good burn time. Moonlight mode makes a great night light. Overall a wonderful flashlight. Would recommend to anyone. Not the world's smallest single AA flashlight but not a behemoth either.

  13. A Great Light! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Apr 2017

    I've been pleased with all of the ThruNite products I have. The headlamps (TH20) the small T01 flashlights (perfect as gifts too) and now, the Archer 1A V3.

    The headlamps and the Archer have multiple brightness settings, are easy to use and Reliable! I also like that the Archer has two switches. One is the "on" while the other changes the brightness settings. And, when you turn it off, it will stay in the brightness setting you last used. Perfect!

    The ThruNite products I have ordered for myself, friends or relatives is approaching 50. Most were the T01's, but I have never been disappointed with their products. And, they won't be the last.

  14. great light, great price, would recommend to you! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2017

    I really like this light, I purchased the NW version and I prefer this color tone for the light. Modes are great, Battery life is good, works fine as a headlamp clipped to my hat. I took one star off as I had a bit of reliability trouble with mine. After a couple of minor spills the light started working intermittently on the higher modes. Long story short, I removed the head and cleaned the battery contacts to the head for the negative side of the battery. It looked like this had not been cleaned at the factory well, and after the cleaning the battery works perfect again.

  15. Thrunite Archer A1 V3 Budget Perfection 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2016

    Perfect Every Day Carry (EDC) light. Very compact.
    Beautiful neutral beam tint.
    Offers turbo which is very bright with my Orbtronic protected 14500 and moonlight mode .
