The TM26 Quadray Rechargeable LED Flashlight from Nitecore has the power and features of a full-size light packed into a compact package. Its head has four Cree XM-L U2 LED emitters that drive the five output levels from 3 lumens to 3800. The low output is ideal for reading or looking in a pack, while the turbo mode is perfect for search-and-rescue or lighting a campsite. Its three-function strobe mode has a disorientating rapid strobe, a steady flashing beacon and an SOS emergency signal. To keep you apprised of the status of the light, there is an OLED display that shows lumen and output mode, voltage, battery level, remaining runtime and temperature. As you change output, the display updates accordingly. A single, intelligent two-stage pushbutton switch controls all the output and mode functions in an easy-to-use interface.

The aluminum alloy housing has a hard-anodized black finish to resist corrosion and scratches. The emitter lens has anti-reflective coatings on both sides and is tempered to be resistant to breaking and scratching. This durable light is impact resistant to 5' and submersible to 6.6'. To help prevent over-heating, hardened heat-dissipating fins cover the head.

Protection circuitry also prevents over-heat damage by stepping down the output or shutting off the light if it gets too hot. An over-charge system cuts the charging current when the batteries are fully charged. To add to the light's versatility, it can run on disposable CR123A lithium batteries, or 18650 and CR123A li-ion rechargeable. The light will also run on as few as 1 x 18650 or 2 x CR123A batteries, but at reduced performance. Running the light with fewer batteries, is not recommended for long periods, and is only intended for emergency situations.

    I bought this light to scan the back of my property. It easily lights the area 500 feet away. The light is compact and sits nicely on my window sill. I'm sure it will fill additional duty as a emergency light to take deer hunting.

    Comments about NITECORE TM26 Quadray Rechargeable LED Flashlight:

    I have become a huge NiteCore fan of recent, and purchased a few lights for specific needs. This light is a serious powerhouse, capable of illuminating an almost unbelievable area, with a large hot spot and plenty of spill. The light itself is very solid, and I like the fact that unlike a conventional single lens arrangement, the 4 lens set up means if you're out in the woods and drop it straight down on a rock, you will likely still have working lenses, maybe one or two would have cracked, but you're still operational. The user interface is quickly learned, and when in lower modes, like 150 or 600 lumens, it casts a much larger light than comparable lights in the same lumen range. The internal charging is actually very reliable and gives you clear feedback the whole time, and seems to move even quicker than the standalone chargers. You could use this light in place of external chargers, as a 4 battery charger, and put the money you saved into a different light! When aimed up at the ceiling, you can add an amazing amount of light into a room that may be lacking in light, say if you are working on a project. It does get really hot though, not just the head but the handle as well, when in 1850 or 3500 mode, so it is unrealistic to hold it for 2 hours, unless you're outside and it's cold. Perhaps this is where tripod mounting comes in handy. Overall though, this is a super cool light, a must own if you appreciate this kind of technology. I would suggest this is not a light you pull out in NYC, or any city zone, as it looks kind of like a stun gun, and could draw unwanted attention. Regardless of the hot handle, which I'd love to see somehow attenuated, I still give 5 stars, you are getting a light that could compete with a helicopter search light, that fits in the palm of your hand, for under 300.00, that to me is pretty awesome.
