Wurkkos TD02 Review:

General thoughts after a week of usage/size comparison/practicality/interesting things:
• This is Wurkkos’ answer to a small tactical-style flashlight – it reminds me a lot of the Wuben C3 or Speras EST. I like how small and easy it is to carry around. There was some controversy around this light initially when the designs were shared on Facebook, some thought they shared similarities with Weltool/Olight designs. Having a closer look myself, I can see some influences on the head, knurling but that’s where the similarities end.
• Comparisons with other similar lights: Convoy S2+, Wurkkos FC12, Wuben LD50

Overall Construction, LED, lens, bezel, and reflector
• Construction is great, especially for a lower-priced flashlight. The threads are square cut and smooth, and the body is machined nicely with no imperfections. Grippy knurling. Tailcap is recessed and will tail stand. Single switch.
• Interesting that Wurkkos has opted for the SST40 instead of the SFT40 that is seen in the FC12. But the SST40 produces more light. It sits behind a TIR lens.
• Bezel is simple, smooth, and unscrewable. The lens is recessed slightly.
• Comes with an 18650 button top cell, everything you need.

UI – modes
• Very simple, reminds me of the Convoy UI. 5 brightness modes. Accessible through half-press. Double tap for strobe.

Performance – total output, beam profile, longevity, practicality
• CCT, CRI, Ceiling bounce test
• The beam is a pure white color on higher modes, reasonably floody with excellent throw, considering the size of the lens.

• Would have been nicer with an SFT40 in there for an increased range.
• No momentary turbo mode. The 1 sec memory mode is decent though, so you can still access turbo quickly.
• Very slight pause when switching the light on. I noticed something similar on the Sofirn SC32. Not a big deal.
• Plastic TIR lens.

The TD02 is an affordable, well-built flashlight with excellent performance, considering its size. It’s not really a tactical flashlight but it certainly comes close. I’d consider it a tactical-style EDC. For a beginner, you get everything you need in the box, along with a simple UI. I’d recommend it if you’re looking for a great all-rounder EDC that won’t break the bank.
