The Nitecore MT10A (Multitask) flashlight offers the opportunity to the user who desires to acquire a feature packed light that does not require 18650 batteries. The MT10A can be powered by any AA or rechargeable AA battery, AA Lithium L91 battery, LiFePO4 14500 battery, rechargeable Li-ion 14500 battery or IMR14500 rechargeable Li-ion battery. The flashlight produces a maximum output of 920 lumens of white light and a beam throw of 170 meters. The MT10A has a red led which delivers red illumination which preserves night-adapted vision and also acts as a signal light.

The Nitecore MT10A measures 4.25 inches in length and weighs 2.14 ounces without the battery. The flashlight is crafted from an aerospace-grade aluminum alloy which features an anti-roll design and a U-shaped tailcap design for tail-stand capability. The MT10A also features a crenellated bezel, a detachable, titanium-coated stainless steel pocket clip and a HAIII military grade hard-anodized finish. The flashlight utilizes a Cree XM-L2 U2 LED emitter, an integrated metal micro textured reflector and an ultra-clear mineral glass lens with anti-reflective coating.

The Nitecore MT10A produces five light modes: Turbo 920 Lumens 30Min IMR14500 Battery – 170 Lumens 2Hr 45Min AA Battery; High 500 Lumens 45Min IMR14500 Battery – 95 lumens 3Hr 30min AA Battery; Mid 180 lumens 1Hr 45Min IMR14500 Battery – 48 Lumens 7Hr 15Min AA Battery; Low 70 Lumens 5Hr IMR14500 Battery – 17 Lumens 20Hr AA Battery; Eco 1 Lumen 100Hr IMR14500 Battery – 1 Lumen 102Hr AA Battery. The flashlight also delivers the concealed modes of Location Beacon, SOS and Strobe.

To exit and resume the brightness level last used, simply press the step-up or step-down switch. The MT10A has memory effect in strobe mode.

Three seconds after electrical voltage is reported, the MT10A enters standby mode where the indicator flashes once every three seconds. In standby mode, the MT10A will operate for approximately 30 days with the indicator on.
The waterproof flashlight features reverse polarity protection which prevents damage from incorrectly inserted batteries. The Nitecore MT10A flashlight pack comes with a holster, lanyard, O-ring and tailcap cover.
