The Nitecore TIP is a small USB rechargeable light that's compact, convenient and impressively powerful. An ideal size for keeping on your keys for everyday use.
The Nitecore TIP key ring torch has a maximum output of 360 lumens from the Cree XP-G2 S3 and comes with an integrated 500mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery. For convenience the battery can be charged via a micro USB port and has indicator lights to display the charging status; red = charging in progress, green = charging complete.
Constructed from high strength aluminium alloy with a hard anodised metallic finish, The Nitecore TIP is extremely durable yet it weighs the same as a AA battery!
The TIP is a staggeringly powerful light for its lightweight, ultra compact size which allows it to easily be attached to a key ring or tucked into a pocket or bag. Featuring four brightness levels and an excellent beam distance up to 74 meters, the torch is an ideal daily flashlight that will accompany you anywhere!
The Nitecore TIP is compact, convenient and impressively powerful for a key chain light. In addition to its max output, the TIP comes with three dimmer outputs ranging from 150 Lumens all the way down to just 1 Lumen, fitting the lighting needs for a wide range of situations.
The innovative light uses a simple dual switch interface, featuring a power switch for turning the light on and off and a mode switch to cycle between outputs, making one-handed operation quick and easy. Unlike some of Nitecore's other key chain lights, this one has the ability to lock the light, preventing accidental activation in your pack or pocket. Simply hold down both switches until the main LED flashes. Then hold down both switches together again to unlock.
One of the TIP's most useful features is its special internal Li-ion battery pack, which can hold a charge of up to 500 mAh. The battery pack can be quickly recharged via the keylight's convenient micro-USB charging port, located on the side of the light. This allows the user to easily restore the battery's charge from any USB outlet.
