The TM26 v2 Quadray Rechargeable LED Flashlight from Nitecore has the power and features of a full-size light packed into a compact form-factor. Its head has four Cree XM-L2 U3 LED emitters that drive the five output levels from 3 lumens to 4000. 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 are machined into the head.
Protection circuitry also prevents heat damage by monitoring the temperature and will automatically step-down the output or shut 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.
