The Nitecore MT10A is a new addition to the MT range for 2015 and features a Cree XM-L2 U2 LED with maximum output of 920 lumens, when using a IMR14500 lithium-ion battery.
As well as being able to use a IMR14500 battery, the MT10A can also be powered by a protected 14500 lithium-ion battery, a AA NiMH rechargeable battery or a AA alkaline battery. Each option provides different lumen outputs and run-times, so you can tailor the torch to you.
Featuring a tactical tail switch with momentary illumination, the MT10A has five brightness levels, three special modes, two red modes and a red low battery indicator.
The brightness level are selected using the dual side switch 'step up' and 'step down' buttons. They also provide instant access to red light mode and strobe.
Useful design features include a removable and reversible pocket clip, anti-roll head and tail stand capability for use as a candle.
Integrated metal micro textured reflector for optimal peripheral illumination
Memory function; remembers the last used brightness setting
Red LED provides constant on and flashing
Battery voltage indicator
Toughened ultra-clear mineral glass with anti-reflective coating
Reverse polarity protection
Stainless steel, titanium plated pocket clip
Tail stand capability
If you choose the IMR battery option above, then please note that the IMR14500 high-discharge performance Lithium Manganese IMR button top battery is NOT protected against being over-charged, over-discharged or short circuited. It is therefore very important to observe the following when using these cells:
1) Do not discharge below 2.75 V
2) Do not charge over 4.2 V
3) Use with Nitecore Chargers
4) Do not short circuit (may release potentially hazardous current)
