Nitecore P20UV

The Nitecore Precise Series P20UV tactical flashlight is built for fighting, well not really, but the flashlight comes with four secondary ultraviolet LEDs that are included to assist security and law enforcement personnel with authentication, forensics and identification procedures. So you are not a security person, no problem, the Nitecore P20UV has three primary settings including tactical and law enforcement modes and the general mode for the casual user.

The Nitecore P20UV is housed in an anodized aircraft grade aluminum alloy and features an ultra-clear mineral glass with anti-scratch coating along with a micro textured metal reflector. The flashlight also features a two-way titanium steel clip and a crenulated bezel which boasts an anti-rolling design. All P20UV flashlights come with individual serial numbers located on the bezels.

The P20UV can be powered by one 18650 Li-ion battery or two CR123 batteries. The flashlight contains one white CREE XM-L2 (T6) LED which produces a maximum output of 800 lumens, a light beam of 180 meters and three brightness levels: High 800 Lumens 3HR 30Min One 18650 Battery – 1Hr 30Min Two CR123 Batteries; Mid 400 Lumens 5Hr 45Min One 18650 Battery – 2Hr 30Min Two CR123 Batteries; Low 70 Lumens 15Hr 30Min
One 18650 Battery – 80 Lumens 8Hr Two CR123 Batteries.

The P20UV has four ultraviolet LEDs which provide 320mW at 365nm. When using ultraviolet output, the P20UV is capable of sustaining a constant output for 13 hours with 1 x 3.7V 2600mAh 18650 Li-ion battery. When in medium and turbo mode, the P20UV will reduce output luminance automatically after 3 minutes of use to prevent batteries from overheating.

The Nitecore Precise Series P20UV tactical flashlight offers three different modes of illumination for different users and situations. The Tactical Mode only provides turbo and ultraviolet outputs, and is ideal for self-defense, emergencies and tactical operations. The Law Enforcement Mode provides medium, turbo and ultraviolet outputs. Turbo is the default state. This mode is designed for law enforcement officers and patrol guards. The General Mode (default mode for first time use) provides low, medium, turbo and ultraviolet outputs.

The P20UV is operated by a dual switch system in the tail. The power switch facilitates momentary-on and constant-on operation. Two integrated LEDs built into the tail switch blink to indicate remaining battery power when the tail cap is tightened after battery installation. 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.

Simply half press and hold the tail switch to turn on the flashlight, and release to turn it off. For continuous use press the tail switch until a click is heard. To switch off the light press the tail switch again until a click is heard. The Strobe Ready Mode switch provides direct access to strobe mode in any state. With the light turned on, press the Mode switch to cycle through all four outputs. The General mode provides an intelligent memory function to ensure direct access to the setting last used when reactivated. The Nitecore Precise Series P20UV flashlight pack comes complete with a holster, CR123 battery magazine, clip, tactical ring, lanyard and spare O-ring.

Fenix E20

Are you wary of flashlights where you have to toggle through the various light modes every time you turn the light on just to get to the desired setting? This exercise can be particularly frustrating for some users. You can of course seek to acquire a flashlight which “remembers”your last setting when next you turn it on, or you can try the new Fenix E20 and shake your way through the light modes. The Fenix E20 (2014 Edition) comes equipped with motion control technology which facilitates the changing of light modes by simply shaking the light. This operation is achieved with the head of the flashlight slightly loosened. With a preferred light setting in place tightening the head will disable the shake feature locking the flashlight to the desired mode.

The E20 is housed in an anodized aircraft-grade aluminum aluminum alloy and features an anti-abrasive finish. The flashlight contains a Cree XP-E2 LED which produces a maximum output of 250 lumens, a 208 meter beam and three light modes: High 250 Lumens Ni-MH Battery 1Hr 24 Min – Alkaline Battery 35Min; Mid 125 Lumens Ni-MH Battery 4Hr 45Min – Alkaline Battery 2Hr 40Min; Low 10 Lumens Ni-MH Battery 60Hr – Alkaline Battery 80Hr. The E20 is powered by two AA (Ni-MH, Alkaline) batteries. The flashlight is turned on with a push button switch in the tail cap which you tap and hold for momentary-on and click for constant-on. The Fenix E20 (2014 Edition) also features digitally regulated output which maintains constant brightness throughout the life of the batteries. The flashlight is submersible up to two meters and comes with reverse polarity protection which protects against improper battery installation.
