Nitecore P36

The Nitecore P36 is a tough flashlight designed for outdoor use by law enforcement personnel and professional sportspersons especially cavers, hikers and hunters. The flashlight measures 173mm in length and features a flat body shape. The P36 is housed in an aircraft grade aluminum alloy with a stainless steel bezel and features a HAIII military grade hard-anodized finish. The flashlight contains an ultra-clear mineral glass lens with anti-reflective coating along with a micro-textured aluminum reflector for peripheral illumination.

The P36 can be powered by rechargeable 18650 Li-ion or RCR123 batteries as well as non-rechargeable CR123 lithium batteries. The flashlight uses a CREE MT-G2 LED which delivers a maximum output of 2000 lumens, a 300 meter beam and four light modes: Turbo 2000 Lumens 45Min Two 18650 Batteries – 30Min Four CR123 Batteries; High 1500 Lumens 1Hr Two 18650 Batteries – 45Min Four CR123 Batteries; Mid 380 Lumens 7Hr 30Min Two 18650 Batteries – 5Hr Four CR123 Batteries; Lower 2 Lumens 325Hr Two 18650 Batteries – 185Hr Four CR123 Batteries. In all the P36 can be adjusted to produce ten brightness levels. Additionally, the flashlight also delivers the Strobe, Slow Flashing, Quick Flashing, Location Beacon and SOS light modes.

The Nitecore P36 is operated by a dual switch system located in the tailcap. A push button switch controls the on/off operation of the light and a multifunctional rotary switch provides access to the various brightness levels. For the momentary-on operation of the flashlight you simply press and hold the onóff switch halfway and release to turn the light off. For the constant-on operation of the P36 you press the on/off switch until a click is heard.

Manipulating the Nitecore P36’s various features is done by operating the rotary switch. With the light switched on you can rotate the rotary switch to access ten brightness levels. Rotating the rotary switch counterclockwise would increase lumens output until the turbo mode is selected. Alternatively, rotating the rotary switch clockwise would lower lumen output until the ultra-low mode is selected. With the light switched off, sliding the rotary switch counterclockwise quickly and pressing the on/off button within three seconds would enter the light into turbo mode (2000 lumens). Alternatively, with the light switched off, sliding the rotary switch clockwise quickly and pressing the on/off switch within three seconds would enter the flashlight into ultra-low mode (2 lumens). Pressing the rotary switch in any state would immediately enter the flashlight into the strobe light mode. The P36 has an intelligent memory function ensuring the last used output will be saved and resumed when the P36 is reactivated.

You can access the P36’s special modes (Strobe/Slow Flashing/Quick Flashing/Location Beacon/SOS) with the flashlight turned on by pressing the rotary switch to enter Strobe mode. Access to the special modes is achieved by rotating the rotary switch counterclockwise. To resume the previously used special mode rotate the rotary switch in reverse. Exiting special modes is done by pressing the rotary switch again to resume the last used brightness level. The P36 does not have an intelligent memory function for any of its special modes.

The Nitecore P36 features Advanced temperature regulation (ATR) technology which allows the flashlight to dynamically adjust output performance according to its body temperature thus preventing damage from overheating. The flashlight also features two power indicators on the tail which (with the light on) will flash once every two seconds when battery power levels fall to 50%. The red power indicators will flash quickly when battery power is close to depletion With the light off, tightening the bezel or pressing the rotary switch after battery installation will activate the two red power indicators on the tail. The power indicators will blink three times when power levels are above 50%; twice when power levels are below 50%; and once when battery power is close to depletion. The waterproof flashlight also features an U-shaped tailcap design which prevents accidental activation of the P36. The Nitecore P36 flashlight pack come complete with a battery carrier, holster, lanyard, rubber switch casing, and spare O ring.

A metal clip, lanyard and holster are included in the Nitecore EC21 flashlight pack.

The EC21 contains a Cree XP-G2 (R5) LED for white light illumination and a secondary red LED for constant illumination to preserve night vision and flashing illumination to serve as a signal light. The flashlight can be powered by one rechargeable 18650 Li-ion battery or two CR123 batteries.The EC21 produces a maximum output of 460 lumens, a beam of 194 meters and eight light modes: Turbo 460 Lumens 1Hr 45Min One 18650 Battery – 1Hr 15Min Two CR123 Batteries; High 210 Lumens 4Hr 45Min One 18650 Battery – 4Hr 15Min Two CR123 Batteries; Mid 100 Lumens 12Hr One 18650 Battery – 10Hr Two CR123 Batteries; Low 20 Lumens 50Hr One 18650 Battery – 48Hr Two CR123 Batteries; Lower 1 Lumen 430Hr One 18650 Battery – 280Hr Two CR123 Batteries; Strobe; SOS; Location Beacon.

With the light switched off, press and hold the on/off button for more than one second to access ultra-low mode (1 lumen). With the light switched off, press and hold the mode button for more than one second to access turbo mode (460 lumens). When in turbo mode, the EC21 will adjust output luminance automatically within 20 minutes of use to prevent overheating. With the light switched off, press the mode button to enter red light mode. In this mode, the secondary red LED will illuminate steadily. When in red light mode, press and hold the mode button for more than one second to enter the signal light mode. In this mode, the secondary red LED will flash to serve as a signal light. Press any button to exit the red light /signal light mode.

Pelican 3310PL

Unless you carry around your flashlight in your hand or pocket all the time you are likely to experience some delay in accessing it should the need arise.

Nitecore P12 2015

Nitecore have upgraded their Precise Series P12 flashlight boosting output from a maximum of 950 to 1000 lumens and extending the the reach of the beam from 222 to 232 meters. The P12 which measures 139mm in length is housed in an aircraft grade aluminium alloy and features an HAIII military grade hard-anodized finish. The flashlight also features a rugged diamond-shaped knurling which offers a secure and ergonomic grip and a specialized U-shaped tailcap which prevents accidental activation and aids operation with gloves. A titanium plated stainless steel clip and tactical ring are included in the P12’s 2015 flashlight pack.

The Nitecore P12 2015 flashlight can be powered by one 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery, two CR123 lithium and RCR123 rechargeable Li-ion batteries. The flashlight contains a Cree XM-L2 (U2) LED which delivers nine light modes: High 1000 Lumens 1HR 15Min 18560 Battery – 1HR 2 CR123 Batteries; Mid 240 Lumens 6Hr 18650 Battery – 5Hr 15Min 2 CR123 Batteries; Low 70 Lumens 28Hr 18650 Battery – 20Hr 2 CR123 Batteries; Lower 1 Lumen 520Hr 18650 Battery – 300Hr 2 CR123 Batteries; Strobe; SOS; Location beacon.

The P12 2015 incorporates “Precision Digital Optics Technology” (PDOT) which utilizes digital simulation and precise point-to-point curve reflecting methods to optimize reflector performance. The inclusion of PDOT combined with the ultra-clear mineral glass lens with anti-reflective coating maximizes the performance of the beam enabling the flashlight to illuminate objects up to 232 meters away.

The flashlight is operated by a dual switch system which includes a tactical pushbutton tail switch which offers on/off and momentary-on operations and a side switch located just beneath the head which facilitates access to the brightness levels. To turn on the flashlight the user presses the tailcap until a “click” is heard. Switching off the light requires a similar action when the light is on. To access momentary-on operation when the flashlight is off the tail switch is pressed halfway and held. When the switch is released the light is turned off.

Accessing the P12’s light modes when the flashlight is on is achieved by pressing the side switch in quick succession to cycle through the following brightness levels: ultra-low, low, medium and high. Once a desired setting is displayed, it may be saved by turning the light off at the tail switch. The P12 automatically switches to a lower mode after three minutes of use at its highest level of output. With the light turned on, press and hold the side switch to activate the Strobe mode. Press and hold once again to access Location Beacon mode and repeat once more for SOS mode. To exit any one of these modes simply press the side switch to be returned to the previously used brightness level.

The Nitecore P12 2015 flashlight features a physical reverse polarity protection mechanism which protects against incorrect battery installation. The flashlight also features an integrated multifunctional indicator light on the side switch. With the light switched on, the power indicator will blink once every two seconds when power levels reach 50%. With the light switched on, the power indicator will blink rapidly when power levels are low. With the light turned off, press and hold the side switch while simultaneously pressing the tail switch to display the battery voltage (accurate to ±0.1V). The new Nitecore P12 just like the old would be an ideal EDC for just about any task at home, in the shop or out in the rugged outdoors.

Nitecore TM06

If you truly want real power in the palm of your hand then you have little choice but to opt for the latest addition to Nitecore’s Tiny Monster series of handheld flashlights. The TM06 measures 125mm and produces a maximum output of 300 lumens from four Cree XM-L2 U2 LEDs. The flashlight is constructed from an aircraft grade aluminum alloy and features an HAIII military grade hard anodized scratch resistant surface. The TM06 also features a stainless steel crenulated bezel ring which protects the core components from damage. A U-shaped tailcap design prevents accidental activation of the flashlight.

The Nitecore TM06 utilizes a quad-LED aluminum reflector which projects a focussed beam with optimum peripheral illumination and “Precision Digital Optics Technology” which provides extreme reflector performance. The flashlight produces eight light modes: Turbo 3800 Lumens 45Min; High 2500 Lumens 3Hr 15Min; Mid 480 Lumens 9Hr; Low 160 Lumens 25Hr; Lower 3 Lumens 433Hr; Strobe; SOS; Location beacon. The TM06 is powered by four 18650 rechargeable Li-ion 3.7v batteries.

The TM06 is operated by a push button power switch in the tailcap and a mode selection side switch located on the head. Pressing the power switch partway would turn the light on momentarily. To turn the light on for constant operation the switch would have to be pressed until a click is heard. To turn the flashlight off you press the tail switch again until a “click” is heard to turn it off and enter standby mode. When in standby mode press the side switch all the way down to activate the power indicator to flash once every three seconds to assist in locating the flashlight in dark conditions. Simultaneously pressing the tail and side switches provides access to the turbo mode. Simultaneously pressing the the tail and side switches partway provides access to the ultra-low mode.

The flashlight utilizes a 2-stage mode selection switch similar to a camera shutter button. The light’s functions are selected according to the depth the switch is pressed. With the light turned on, press the side switch all the way down repeatedly to cycle through ultra-low, low, medium, high and turbo brightness levels. Alternatively, with the light turned on, press the side switch partway to adjust the brightness levels in reverse until ultra-low output is displayed.

When in ultra-low/low/medium/high mode, press and hold the side switch partway down for more than one second to access turbo mode. With the light turned on, press and hold the side switch for more than one second to enter Strobe mode. To cycle through SOS, Location Beacon and Strobe modes, simply press and hold the side switch for more than one second once again. To exit special mode and resume the previously used output, simply press the side switch again. The TM06’s memory function offers direct access to the previously used brightness when reactivated.

This feature prevents damage to the flashlight from overheating and prolongs its working life. An Integrated power indicator on the side switch indicates the remaining battery power. The Power indicator displays the battery voltage accurate to 0.1V. The TM06 flashlight pack comes complete with a holster and lanyard.
