Nitecore P36 overview

  • 1Description

Nitecore's P36 Explorer LED FLashlight is a purpose-built illuminator to give law-enforcement professionals, first responders, search & rescue personnel, and outdoor enthusiasts an invaluable tool to add to their kit. A unique switching system on the tailcap features a familiar pushbutton switch to control the momentary and constant-on activation with last-mode memory. Adjacent to the pushbutton is a mode selector dial. Using this dial, users have the ability to quickly select 10 regular output modes from a low 2-lumen to a powerful 2000-lumen turbo. Complementing this wide output range are five strobe modes: a disorientating tactical, slow signal, fast signal, location beacon, and an emergency SOS which automatically cycles through the Morse-code sequence. The output is digitally regulated to ensure consistent beam intensity throughout the life of the batteries, and active and passive overheat protection limits the possibility of damage due to excessive heat.

To withstand daily use on the job or on the trail, the housing is made of light and durable T6061 T6 aluminum with a corrosion and scratch-resistant anodized finish. A stainless steel bezel ring protects the head and window from damage, and its hardened and scratch-resistant tempered glass emitter window has an anti-reflection coating to maximize light transmission. The housing is impact resistant to 5' and O-ring sealed for an IPX8 rating, making it submersible to 6.6'. It runs on two 18650 or four CR123 user-supplied batteries.

    Nitecore P36 reviews

    P36 Explorer LED FLashlight is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally, a real flashlight that works Candlepower when you need it. Simple, easy to use design. I was surprised after using it that you don't want to use it full blast all the time. It can dazzle, so with the brightness wheel you can tone down the brightness super easily for near-distance viewing. I got the 18650 Fenix rechargable batteries and charger because they had the best power match. When you get a high proformance flashlight, why use wimpy batteries? Only problem was the specified 18650 battery type did not contact the flashlight battery holder properly, so I had to put a drop of solder on each + terminal of the battery holder to get it to work. Not consumer friendly, but with my 2 minute modification, easily the best flashlight I've ever seen and used.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design The battery holder is a very poor design considering the price and excellect machining of the rest of the flash light. I am waiting on a replacement before I can see if the flash light works.
