10 reasons to get a Nitecore
These are some of the major features of the Nitecore line with many other features specific to individual models not mentioned.
The attention to detail and advanced technology inherent in Nitecore products set them apart from any other consumer based torch manufacturer anywhere in the world; and due to streamlined manufacturing processes and the power of bulk purchases, these lights can be offered at end user prices well below what one would reasonably expect to pay.
All Nitecore torches incorporate a microcontroller which provides broad voltage fully regulated digital output. As a result the Nitecore line is compatible with alkaline, nickel metal hydride, lithium and lithium-ion battery chemistries. Digital regulation also affords the user optimal battery runtime from a selected brightness setting, with the potential to extract maximum brightness from a dying cell, or provide dim output from a fresh cell.
Cree High Efficiency LEDs
Cree is the industry leader in next generation Light Emitting Diode technology, producing LEDs that are capable of emitting hundreds, and in certain instances thousands of lumens. Possessing a footprint no larger than a drop of water and consuming very little energy, Cree's diodes have a conservative lifespan of 50,000 hours and are virtually indestructible. All Nitecore torches are regularly updated with the latest Cree offering which ensures end users are always purchasing state-of-the-art.
Every light in the range has multiple output modes. The SRT series employs an accessible, tactile and robust rotating alloy ring as a means of changing output/modes, while other lights are adjusted by either turning the torch bezel or clicking the power button in sequence. Regardless of method, the end result is a practical, user-friendly interface, with each torch able suit your requirements in varied environments.
All Nitecore lights contain precision designed metal reflectors which emit a beam profile consisting of an intense hotspot and large corona or spill beam. A meticulously adjusted profile such as this eliminates the need for a focus function as the immediate area and distant targets are illuminated simultaneously. Nitecore produce the longest throwing small form factor torches in the world today, with some lights able to reach targets in excess of 300 meters.
Aircraft Grade Aluminum Construction
Nitecore uses only the highest quality aluminum alloys for their CNC machining processes, ensuring a fine finish as well as excellent durability, strength and corrosion resistance.
Mil-Spec Type III Hard Anodized Finish
This technology offers superior scratch resistance and color uniformity by chemically infusing colors into the aluminum surface rather than simply painting on top of it. A Type III finish is the hardest and most resilient form of anodizing currently available.
Shock or drop Resistant In Accordance with US MIL-STD-810F
A strict set of engineering standards employed by the U.S. Department of Defence to gauge how a product should perform under various environmental stresses. Several Nitecore models meet this standard for shock resistance.
Waterproof to IPX-8 Standard
This is an international protection rating that ensures Nitecore products can be submerged in water to depth of 1 meter for an indefinite period with no ingress.
Impact and Scratch Resistant Optical Window
An outer diamond plating and high-transmittance inner coating ensures that over time the torch emits as many lumens as it did when it was new.
Pocket searchlights; just a few years ago were unheard of. But now with the size and sheer output of certain models, this has become a reality. The ability to have such power fit in your pocket is assurance and peace of mind to professionals the world over.
