The Nitecore MT1A is powered by a single AA (alkaline or NiMH but not Li-ion) battery and features a Cree XP-G2 R5 LED with a maximum output of 180 lumens. A great value for money no-nonsense flashlight for every day use.
Useful features include a removable and reversible pocket clip, anti-roll head, forward click switch with momentary-on ability, smooth parabolic reflector for long throw, able to tail stand for use as a candle and waterproof to two meters.
The MT1A has four brightness levels plus strobe and SOS flashing modes.
