I live in Denmark, I ordered the torch on 17th March and it arrived on the 23rd of march thank you everyone at Torch Direct for a speedy service. As for the torch itself, I look forward to having it with me on the pennines this year and also when I'm out kayaking at night.

Nitecore's latest edition to the Tiny Monster series is the TM03, currently the world's most powerful single 18650 tactical torch.

The included IMR battery is specially made for the TM03 and is capable of providing high output power to drive the LED to the fullest and incorporates a protection module for added safety. We recommend to charge the battery with a Nitecore charger to ensure compatibility.

Ultilising a Cree XHP70 LED the TM03 produces an astounding 2800 lumens output in turbo setting and the deep textured reflector ensures a uniform beam pattern with a range of up to 289 metres.

As well as a tactical tail clicky switch for on, off and momentary operation, the TM03 also features a lever style mode switch to enable fast and easy access to the strobe and turbo settings and also cycles through the four brightness settings in the order of low, mid, high and turbo.

There are two selectable modes to suit different situations. Suppressing light mode gives direct access to turbo by holding down the mode lever and quick access to strobe by pressing the mode lever twice in quick succession. Strobe Ready™ mode provides direct access to strobe by holding down the mode lever and quick access to turbo by pressing the mode lever twice in quick succession.

All four brightness settings are available in both modes and the last brightness setting used will be remembered next time you use the torch.

The built-in temperature regulation and protection automatically monitors the internal temperature when in turbo and high brightness settings and will lower the lumen output if the torch's temperature goes over 50°C. Due to this feature, there isn't a run-time available for the turbo setting.

Product Features

Dual switch tail cap designed for tactical use and easy application
Two selectable modes bring flexibility in operation
Integrated LED on tail switch to indicate remaining battery power (patented)
Intelligent memory to remember the last used setting

Brighten my video recordings
Sunday, 27 November 2016  | 

I had a querky idea of brightening a dark room to record video of people without glaring light into their eyes. I do it by bouncing the torchlight off the ceiling so reflected light only illuminates the guys being videod. As there is some loss by reflection, the light source must be very bright and this led torch is bright enough. Extreme care must be taken when setting up the camera and light not to momentarily aim the torch beam at the people instead of straight up at the ceiling as it could damage their vision. I am very pleased with the torch and the battery lasts beyond the 30 minutes maximum of my videos at high power.

Living with the TM03
Wednesday, 12 October 2016  | 

The TM03 is a fantastic light when used for the purpose it was created for, this is not an EDC torch nor is it small or particularly light. What it is is very powerful with lots of spill and a large hotspot. The supplied battery is the highest quality as is the torch itself. There are no visible flaws. The UI is intuitive after a few minutes of use and though there are lights with better runtime and better throw this thing is a tank. Everything on it feels over engeneered. But one and see for yourself.
