The Nitecore R40 torch has a maximum output of 1000 lumens from the Cree XP-L HI LED, and is powered using the included NL26650DW 5000mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery. This is a proprietary battery with both polarity on each end and offers much improved runtimes over 18650 powered torches.
The R40 offers several means of charging, including using either the cradle or desktop stand to recharge the battery inside the torch itself (both included). In addition, the R40 comes with a vehicle adapter to charge the torch whilst you're on the move and this can also be used in conjunction with power banks and solar chargers (not included).
The R40 has a Cree XP-L HI V3 LED and a reflector that employs Nitecore's Precision Digital Optic Technology (PDOT), which provides great light concentration and an impressive throw, up to 520 meters. This LED features a focused beam profile for increased throw and combined with a maximum brightness of 1000 lumens, the R40 is the ideal searchlight.
ATR technology maintains the R40 at a constant low temperature by automatically detecting the internal temperature and adjusting the output accordingly. This prevents the LED from overheating and prolongs the lifespan.
There are two methods to lock this light and prevent accidental operation. Holding down both switches for one second will enter lockout mode and in addition loosening the tail cap will prevent the light turning on when packed away during transit.
