Nitecore Tiny Monster TM26
GizMag reports: [edited]
Nitecore’s new Tiny Monster TM26 is billed as the world’s smallest 3,500-lumen flashlight.
The hard-anodized aluminum-bodied TM26 utilizes four Cree XM-L LEDs. These are protected by coated mineral glass lenses and powered by four 18650 or eight CR123 rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. Those batteries are charged via an AC adapter that plugs directly into the flashlight.
You can switch between eight brightness levels – along with other modes – via a single multi-function switch. An OLED display indicates level of brightness, battery status, battery voltage, approximate run time remaining and operating temperature.
If the four 18650s are used it can reportedly put out 3,500 lumens for 45 minutes. It has a beam distance of 415 meters. The flashlight is waterproof to two meters.
The Nitecore Tiny Monster TM26 is available for £209 from Amazon.
