Nitecore's latest edition to the Tiny Monster series is the TM03, currently the world's most powerful single 18650 tactical torch. The included IMR battery is specially made for the TM03 and is capable of providing high output power to drive the LED to the fullest and incorporates a protection module for added safety. We recommend to charge the battery with a Nitecore battery charger that is designed for IMR batteries to ensure compatibility. Utilising a Cree XHP70 LED the TM03 produces an astounding 2800 lumens output in turbo setting and the deep textured reflector ensures a uniform beam pattern with a range of up to 289 metres. As well as a tactical tail clicky switch for on, off and momentary operation, the TM03 also features a lever style mode switch to enable fast and easy access to the strobe and turbo settings and also cycles through the four brightness settings in the order of low, mid, high and turbo.
There are two selectable modes to suit different situations. Suppressing light mode gives direct access to turbo by holding down the mode lever and quick access to strobe by pressing the mode lever twice in quick succession. Strobe Ready™ mode provides direct access to strobe by holding down the mode lever and quick access to turbo by pressing the mode lever twice in quick succession. All four brightness settings are available in both modes and the last brightness setting used will be remembered next time you use the torch. The built-in temperature regulation and protection automatically monitors the internal temperature when in turbo and high brightness settings and will lower the lumen output if the torch's temperature goes over 50°C. Due to this feature, there isn't a run-time available for the turbo setting.
Tested to ANSI/NEMA FL1 standards using the included Nitecore IMR18650 lithium-ion battery under laboratory conditions. Data may vary slightly during real-world use due to battery, individual usage habits and environmental factors.
