Ever since the increase in security threats around the world there have been heightened awareness on the part of customs officers of potential hazards passing through airports. Flashlight owners in particular have experienced some difficulty in their efforts to acquire 18650 rechargeable batteries from a country other than the one in which they reside.These Li-ion rechargeable batteries not only deliver more juice to the Cree LEDs but can be recharged and reused over a significant period of time. It is very welcomed therefore when you are presented with the option of owning a neat flashlight which offers the options of using both AAA and 18650 power sources. The Nitebeam 900F is labelled as a “focusable” flashlight since you can access the light’s brightness levels by pulling and pushing on the head as well as via a click of the side switch. When you operate the flashlight using the switch a reset function kicks in reverting back the light to high mode after it’s been turned off.
The flashlight can be powered by one 18650 rechargeable battery or three AAA batteries with the use of a cartridge. The Nitebeam 900F has a runtime of two hours in high mode. The flashlight is constructed of aircraft grade aluminium alloy. The flashlight’s LED produces a maximum output of 900 lumens and three light modes: High 900 Lumens; Med -450 Lumens; Low 90 Lumens. The Nitebeam 900F flashlight pack includes two 18650 rechargeable batteries, a charger and a cartridge to hold three AAA batteries.
