A hybrid flashlight with 4 LEDs and 1 LEP

It’s only been quite recently have we seen hybrid flashlights. We are talking about an LED and LEP flashlight in 1. The Thor 4 is one of the handfuls of options currently available. Besides the Lumintop Thor 4, you have the Lumintop THor PRO, Nebo Luxtreme SL100, Mateminco FW3, Nitecore P35i, and that’s probably about it. I might have forgotten 1 or 2, but there aren’t many more.

Lumintop has been adding more and more LEP flashlights to its lineup, including the Lumintop Thor PRO. It’s a 4*18650 flashlight with lots of lumens, and lots of throw. But it’s pretty big and heavy.

The Thor 4 is therefore a very nice alternative. Where you still get lots of throw (from the LEP) while still enjoying a floody beam with the 4 LEDs. It’s claiming a maximum output of 2,800 lumens (mainly because of the LEDs) and a distance of 1170 meters. That’s nothing like the 15,000 lumens of the Thor PRO, but it’s much lighter and very pocketable.

Use, batteries, and more

The Thor 4 runs off a single 21700 battery. It only works with unprotected, flat-top 21700 batteries. Protected and ones with USB ports are too long.

Another nice feature of the Thor 4 is the built-in powerbank. This means that you can charge your phone (or other portable devices) while outdoors.
