The Nitecore New P30 is a long range handheld torch with a range of up to 618 meters. This model differs from the original P30 in that it can be powered by a single 21700 Li-ion battery for improved runtimes. Included with the torch is a Nitecore NL2150R 5000mAh battery with USB-C charging port, a USB-C cable is also included. In addition to 21700 cells the New P30 can be powered by an 18650 Li-ion when used with the provided battery tube. We are seeing more torches move towards 21700 batteries due to their increased capacity and a likely to be the future of cylindrical batteries.
The New P30 features a Cree XP-L HI V3 LED, which is optimised for long range and housed inside a deep polished reflector. This would make an ideal searchlight or for hunting purposes. Despite the New P30s long range and extended runtimes it is still very compact and can also be weapon mounted. The head of the P30 measures 50mm in diameter so it is compatible with a wide range of Nitecore filters.
Operation is via a dual button interface; the tactical tail switch has momentary-on function and the side switch is used to change mode / brightness. A blue light inside the side switch flashes to indicate the battery voltage.
