The Nitecore TIP Cu is crafted from a solid copper billet to produce a beautiful key ring torch. As the TIP Cu ages with usage the copper will gradually oxidise to produce a distinctive coating known as patina for a vintage look. It also has an advantage over anodised torches in that there isn't an outer coating to scratch off and look scruffy! A great gift idea for the flashaholic in your life.
The TIP Cu features a Cree XP-G2 LED with a maximum output of 360 lumens. A built in Li-ion rechargeable battery rated at 500mAh provides the power and can be charged via micro-usb lead (not included). The battery features incorporated protection against over-charge, over discharge and short circuit. While charging a built in indicator light will display red and then change to green when charging is complete.
Brightness and Runtimes for Nitecore TIP Cu:
Turbo Mode: 360 lumens - 30 mins runtime
High Level: 150 lumens - 1 hr 30 mins runtime
Medium Level: 35 lumens - 6 hrs 30 mins runtime
Low: 1 lumen - 46 hrs runtime
Direct access to turbo mode is possible by holding down the mode switch and direct access to ultra-low by holding the power switch.
A high efficiency constant current means no PWM flicker for a stable consistent light. When in standby mode the Nitecore TIP 2017 takes advantage of a low power consumption management chip, which significantly reduces standby current draw to <5uA.
