The TM38 Lite Rechargeable LED Searchlight from Nitecore is a powerful torch with five brightness settings and a long throw, suited to public safety, military, industrial, recreational, and home use. Mount it on a tripod, and it becomes an area light for a campsite, barbecue, or after-dark tasks. It is equipped with a Cree XHP35 HI D4 LED, which drives output settings from 50 to 1800 lumens, and is controlled by a single, intelligent two-stage push-button switch in an easy-to-use interface. The light's four 18650 batteries will provide runtimes from 2 to 60 hours, depending on output level. 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 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'.
A light this powerful can get hot, so its housing incorporates a substantial amount of heat-dissipating fin surface. In turbo mode, the TM38 Lite will automatically reduce output when the light reaches a temperature of 140°F (60°C). An intelligent charging system cuts off the power when the battery is fully charged.
