The TM36 Tiny Monster Rechargeable LED Flashlight from Nitecore has the power and features of a full-size light packed into a compact package. Its head features the LUMINUS SBT-70 LED emitter that drives the eight modes and output levels from 50 to 1800 lumens. A single, intelligent two-stage pushbutton switch controls all the output and mode functions in an easy-to-use interface. An illuminated ring around the switch blinks to give you feedback on the status of the light. An integrated multi-function OLED displays output, mode, voltage, temperature, runtime and battery status.

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 to maximize light transmission, and is tempered to be resistant to breaking and scratching. This durable light is impact resistant to 5' and submersible to 6.6'. On the underside of the handle is a thread to mount the light onto a tripod for hands-free operation. 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 the light off, if it gets too hot. An over-charge system cuts the charging current when the battery is fully charged. The included high capacity NBP52 Li-ion rechargeable battery pack serves as the light's handle, prolongs runtime and optimizes cooling performance. It provides two charging ports and offers the equivalent of eight 18650 batteries.

The NITECORE TM36 is a very good flashlight. It features an excellent long-range beam that really works well. The TM36 is very useful for checking your outdoor properties offering the homeowner a feeling of security. Nothing can hide from this searchlight!

12 football field throw -1200 yards in question?

I have many high end flashlights and I believe NITECORE is one of the best brands if not the best. This flashlight claims to throw the beam 1200 yards which is 12 Football Fields. I believe that to be true in a their very controlled environment and testing facility however; if I had to guess it only throws the beam to a satisfactory level about 500 to 600 yards. That being said it is still one of the longest throwing beams in a flashlight that I have tried. I have found that the rule of thumb in most brands is to divide the beam throw in half on the better brands and by 3 on the cheaper brands. This is also a heavy large flashlight. The quality is A++ I am happy with this light. I do not believe there is a flashlight in the price range with a longer throw.

First off, this light has insane output. Some people may gripe that it's not a true Tiny Monster, but it simply means that they're the poor, unilluminated fools they make themselves out to be. Let there be no mistake, this is really and truly a Tiny Monster of a flashlight. It can outshine a helicopter searchlight and only weighs 2 pounds. Take it out on a humid or cloudy night and you can make your own bat sigil sky projector; or wave it around like a giant lightsaber and cause all sorts of consternation from the general public. Don't point this at aircraft, it's probably a felony and you'll be easy to find.

this is an extremely well made light with the great interface if you are looking for a large searchlight this should be the one to get I even find a lower modes very useful and the 800 lumen second mode to throw extremely far due to the large reflector and the sbt70 emitter .If you are looking for a large throwing light your search is over this is the one to get in B&H Photo has the best price best service and quickest free shipping

THIS IS ONE AMAZING LIGHT

I bought the Nitecore TM 36 based on what I read, and after seeing beamshots in videos online...When I fired it up for the first time, I couldn't believe it. This comes with the NBP52 extended run battery pack, and the light it throws out there is better than I could have imagined. It has a factory de-domed cool white cree light that blows the Fenix TK61, TK75, and Thrunite TN32 out of the water. Don't get me wrong,. I own all of them, and while they are great lights in their own rights, none of them touches the throw of the TM 36! BH has a great price on this torch, and it was worth every penny of the cost.
