Nitecore MT10A overview

  • 1Description

The white CREE XM-L2 U2 LED housed in the NITECORE MT10A Flashlight outputs up to 920 lumens on turbo mode. A secondary red LED emitter provides light that doesn't alter night-adjusted vision, and can function as a location beacon when placed in strobe mode. On and off switching is accomplished via the tail switch while output levels and access to strobe and SOS modes are controlled by the dual body switches. The tail switch also allows for constant on or momentary illumination.

The flashlight's aluminum body has a Mil Spec Type III hard-anodized finish with a 1" diameter bezel. Deep pocket carry is accomplished by use of a removable clip, and a protrusion on the rear protects the switch and functions as a tail stand. An orange peel reflector provides a smooth beam, and the body has a non-slip design. Waterproof to 6.6' and impact resistant to 4.9', the M10A is ideal for harsh conditions. This light is powered by one AA or one 14500 battery.

    Nitecore MT10A reviews

    MT10A Flashlight is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I own several Nitecore flashlights of different series and this one is my favorite. It is a very versatile light. With different single batteries from the omnipresent AA through the 14500 to the IMR14500 you go from bright to incredibly bright. The brightness is adjustable with 5 levels of white and a separate red LED. The light is well built. This model has a rear power switch and a side up/down switch which I think works very well. The size is smallish and fits well in the hand. I prefer the thinner width compared to the EC11 and the MT10C even though it is a little longer and the shorter length compared to the 2xAA battery MT20A. Be aware that at the brightest setting the flashlight does get warm to hot with the 14500 and the IMR14500. Overall a very nice product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will buy it again as a gift. It is a lightweight powerhouse of strength and features. Perfect for throwing in a backpack. I like the red low-light and strobe capacity in the event of emergency. And the levels of light have many uses...including temporarily blinding an intruder if need be. It is small enough to carry around in luggage, pocket or backpack. And the AA batteries won't cause a problem at the airport. But read the manual first to become acquainted with all it can do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bright versatile little flashlight Brighter than I expected and the small size goes in the camera bag well. I find the brightest setting to be overkill in most situations but might be helpful in light painting situations. You can use readily available batteries or get rechargeable ones. The red light is useful for night photography so you don't loose your night vision. Only complaint would be no focusing capability, however the pattern is nice and even and usable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! This is about as good an every day carry (EDC) light as you're gonna get. It's small in length and diameter, light weight, disappears in your pocket. It takes 1 AA battery, easy to find anywhere, small battery so you can carry extras, and I think the light accepts any chemistry battery. It has low to high settings, putting out close to 1000 lumens on high for about half an hour if needed. Also has strobe and SOS and Beacon modes, all with simple button presses, no twisting light half way or anything like that-(some lights make you twist open to access different modes, confusing, annoying, and who wants to start unthreading light when you're out in rain?) -It also uses a tail switch, much more tactical, and the rails around the tail switch allow you to stand the light upright on a flat surface. Got this for my wife to carry, I like her to carry when walking home at night. Another home run, as usual, for Nitecore.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Noob I'm new to flashlights, I just used what my family had in the house, now that I'm adulting I need flashlights. I got the nitecore rechargeable battery, of course, for max output and it amazes me how powerful it is. I compared it to my "bright" maglite mini and I think I may be a light snob now. It's great at not just lighting up what I point it at, but the area as well. It hasn't quite made it into my EDC, but when I have a backpack or extra pockets I carry it. I saw someone say it's too big for carry, but honestly I think this is a light that some could carry everyday. It's definitely light enough lol, and the lumen to size ratio is well above 50. That's all I have to say, I made the ratio thing up btw, but that should be a thing, a ratio for lumen by diameter and length added together in inches multiplied by weight (without battery) in ounces. Following the aforementioned calculation the Lumen to size ratio for this light would be 81.8 lumen/(in*oz). That seems like a good number to me.
