This product is available to ship immediately.

As the newest metal keychain light on the market, the TIP is more innovative. Comes in a thumb size, the TIP nets just 0.75oz (23.5g), just as little as an AA battery. You can't nearly feel its weight.

Utilizing a CREE XP-G2 LED outputting 360 lumens, it is just powerful as some EDC torches and easily outshines some metallic keychain lights on the market. An independent turbo mode can be accessed directly. Three adjustable modes (low-mid-high) cater for many purposes.

Onboard USB charging port design allows you to charge the light whenever you need and eliminates the need to replace batteries. Built-in 500mAh li-ion battery offers runtime as long as 46 hours. 

An Integrated Precision Digital Optics Technology (PDOT) and optical coating treated glass ensures extreme reflector performance, enabling the TIP to reach at 74m from such a tiny reflector.

Outer casing is constructed from lightweight and high strength aluminum alloy, protecting core components from damage. HA III Military grade hard anodized metallic surface enables the TIP resistant to scratches.

A powerful small flashlight Sept. 6, 2016, 8:54 p.m.      


This new Nitecore TIP is sort of a Nitecore Tube on steroids. LOTS of steroids. First off, it is made of metal rather than plastic. It's larger and heavier than the Tube, but not terribly so. Mostly, the Nitecore TIP is thicker. It is available in 6 colors. I got it in silver, which is a very BRIGHT silver, because black is not a good color for a flashlight. This silver TIP should be easy to find even in very dim light. This flashlight is so new, I haven’t even seen photographs of the other colors. The controls are a little different than the Nitecore Tube. There are two buttons. One turns the light on and off, and the other button selects the light output. It cycles Low --> Medium, -->High, and has a memory, so it turns on at the last output level you used before you turned the light off. If you double click the level selector button, while it is turned on at any output level, the light goes to the lowest output level, 1 lumen. This is often called a shortcut. If you press and hold the output selector button, while the light is on at any output level, it switches to the Turbo output, which is a nearly impossible to believe 360 lumens, from this tiny flashlight. If you turn the TIP off in the turbo mode, when you turn it back on it comes on in the High output setting, rather than the Turbo output. The different light output levels are just perfect, IMHO. The lowest setting, 1 lumen, is just bright enough to see by if your eyes are well dark adapted, in an area with no ambient light. It will light up the area around your feet, so you don’t trip over anything in the dark. It's also just enough light to read by. You have to hold it fairly close to your book, but it does the job. And it's rated for 46 hours at 1 lumen. That is a very long run time, from such a little flashlight. The next brighter setting is 35 lumens. This will be the setting I will use the most. It has a very floody beam, with a somewhat brighter center area. It lights up a very good sized area, with enough light to really do a good job of illuminating the area right in front of you, and out to 25 to 40 feet, depending on ambient light, and how well your eyes are adjusted to the dark. This output level gives you 6 1/2 hours of light, which is a lot of light, for a long period of time. I remember when an AAA battery powered key chain flashlight would give you 10 lumens, for about 8 - 10 hours. This Nitecore TIP produces a HUGE increase in output and runtime, due to a vastly more efficient LED emitter, running off a lithium ion rechargeable battery. LED flashlights have come a LONG way, in the past 15 years. The High setting on this light produces 150 lumens, for 1 1/2 hours. This is a LOT of light output, from such a tiny flashlight. It lights up my entire back yard. There is a fence that is about 50 feet away, and it is lit up well enough to see areas that need to be painted. And the fence is painted a brown color. Remember that this flashlight produces light like a flood light, rather than a tight beam spot light. So it lights up areas relatively close to you extremely well. But you won’t get a lot of distant illumination from this diminutive flashlight. It is made for relatively close up illumination. The highest setting for the Nitecore TIP is the Turbo setting. To access the Turbo output, with the flashlight turned on at any output level, simply press and hold the output selector switch for about a second, and the light will switch to an astounding 360 lumens. This is a LOT of light. It’s really, REALLY bright. The flashlight is rated for 30 minutes at the Turbo setting. However, because this flashlight is so small, it will heat up very quickly at the Turbo setting. I am certain that the light will not run for a continuous 30 minutes on the Turbo setting. The light will get very hot, and then the internal thermal protection circuits will shut the flashlight off. Or perhaps turn the light down to the medium setting, to prevent the LED emitter from overheating, as well as preventing the Lithium-Ion battery from overheating. Heat management is very important in such a small flashlight, and this Nitecore TIP is fully protected against damage from overheating. When using the light at the High or Turbo settings, you can help the light avoid overheating by wrapping your hand around the light with your fingers and the palm of hand in contact with the light body. This allows heat from the flashlight to be absorbed by your skin, and carried away by your blood. If the light becomes painfully hot to hold onto, you should lower the light output, and allow the light to cool. If you can turn the flashlight off for a few minutes, to allow the heat to dissipate, this is even better. Nitpicks: The Nitecore Tube was made with a small rubber plug to increase water resistance, and keep pocket debris out of the opening for the micro USB plug . The Nitecore TIP doesn’t have this plug. I REALLY think this was a poor decision on Nitecore’s part. I immediately put a piece of scotch tape over the opening. It doesn’t come with a charger cable. When I bought my Nitecore Tube, I didn’t KNOW that it DOESN’T COME with the charger cable. YOU HAVE TO HAVE a cable with a MALE MICRO USB plug, and a charger or computer to plug it into, in order to charge this flashlight. I didn’t have that particular cable. I had to go buy one. If you don’t HAVE that cable, and a charger/computer/power supply to plug it into, you CAN’T CHARGE the NITECORE TIP flashlight.. I think it should come with the charging cable. Not everybody just HAS the correct charging cable lying about their home. I didn’t. A short one would literally cost 25 to 50 CENTS, at the most. Aside from my nitpicks, this really is an excellent keychain light, that can put out enough light to do EDC duty, if you are traveling very light. In short, this is a really outstanding small flashlight. There is nothing else like it currently available. The price seems extremely reasonable to me, given how powerful this small flashlight is, with 4 output levels, and how much capacity the built in lithium ion battery has. I can't recommend this flashlight highly enough.
