The Nitecore Tini Cu has an outer case that is machined from premium copper billet to provide a unique and attractive key ring torch. Over time the copper will oxidise to produce a distinctive coating known as patina, meaning that no two will look alike after a period of usage. A great way to combine modern technology with a vintage appearance.
Featuring a Cree XP-G2 S3 LED with a maximum output of 380 lumens, the Nitecore TINI Cu is unique in its design thanks to a flexible printed circuit that maximises heat dissipation, while enabling the small form factor.
The 280mAh Li-ion battery has a runtime of up to 60 hours on the lowest output setting and thanks to the USB charging port can take a charge from any USB output. Safety has been taken care of thanks to over-charge and over-discharge protection, along with short circuit protection. During the charge process LEDs inside the buttons will flash and then stay solidly lit when charging is complete. When in standby mode the power drain is only 5uA meaning you can leave it for up to a year without charging when not in use!
The Nitecore TINI Cu has a smooth and uniform beam pattern and a range of up to 64 meters in turbo mode.
Operation is handled by two electroplated buttons with built-in indicator lights that report the remaining power level. To turn the TINI Cu on, press and hold the power button (this prevents accidental operation) and then use the mode button to cycle through the three levels. Turbo mode (380 lumens) can be activated by holding the mode switch.
Brightness Levels, Runtimes and Beam Distance:
- Turbo: 380 Lumens - 15 minute runtime - 64 meter range
- High: 145 Lumens - 1 hour runtime - 40 meter range
- Medium: 38 Lumens - 4 hour runtime -19 meter range
- Ultra Low: 1 Lumen - 60 hour runtime - 3.9 meter range
Other useful features include: Continuous illumination, which allows the TINI Cu to be used even when on charge. Constant circuit so there is no PWM flickering. Advanced temperature modulation to adjust brightness according to temperature, ensuring optimal performance while protecting the LED. Stainless steel key ring connector that can withstand 30 kg in weight. Water and dust resistant.
