Nitecore one of the first companies to get the sideswitch right, with the ability to step both up and down - no more cycling through modes ! LED perfectly centred, clean powerful beam and extremely versatile with the low and red outputs.


The Nitecore MT20A features a Cree XP-G2 R5 LED with max output 360 lumens & is powered by 2 x AA (alkaline or NiMH) batteries. This torch cannot use Li-ion 14500 batteries.

In addition to the main white LED the MT20A a features a secondary low level red LED which can be used to preserve night adapted vision. The MT20A has direct access to the white turbo mode & to the red light mode. The red LED can also be used to show the battery voltage and as a location beacon that flashes once every three seconds (30 day runtime with this feature activated).

The Cree XP-G2 R5 LED consumes half the battery power of a XM-L2 LED to illuminate at an equal distance thanks to its narrow beam pattern, making this flashlight ideal for those looking for a compact light with good range and long runtimes.

Brightness Levels (using 2 x NiMH 25000 mAH AA batteries) :

Turbo: 360 lumens - 1 hour 45 minute runtime 

High: 240 lumens - 2 hour 15 minute runtime

Mid: 120 lumens - 5 hour 45 min runtime

Low: 17 lumens - 24 hour runtime

Ultra Low: 1 lumen - 180 hour runtime


Other features include a tactical forward click tail switch with momentary-on capability, removable titanium plated pocket clip, anti-rolling body design and tail standing facility.


Maximum beam distance of up to 160 meters, impact resistant to drops from 1.5 meters & waterproof to IPX-8 (2 meters submersible).


With a head diameter of 25.4mm, this torch needs the diffusers & filters coded "25".

Includes:  Pocket clip, belt holster, wrist lanyard, spare o-ring, spare tail button cover and two AA alkaline batteries.
