The Nitecore TM26GT is a compact rechargeable searchlight with a maximum output of 3500 lumens using four Cree XP-L HI V3 LEDs.
The TM26GT features an intelligent charging circuit with status detection, that charges four 18650 lithium-ion batteries within the torch using the supplied UK mains adaptor, simply plug the charger directly into the charging port.
An integrated OLED display automatically activates when the torch is turned on and allows the user to quickly see the lumen output, brightness mode, battery status, approximate run-time, battery voltage and even the temperature of the torch. It will also indicate when charging is in progress / complete.
After a few seconds the display will turn off, but it can be reactivated with the OLED display button and cycled through with subsequent presses.
The patented single button two-stage switch design offers easy one handed operation and will access either daily mode or search mode depending on the depth the switch is pressed down.
Pressing the switch partway down from off will enter daily mode. In this mode ultra-low, low, mid, high can be cycled through and the last used brightness will be remembered when the torch is turned off. Turbo can be accessed by pressing the switch partway down and holding.
Search mode is accessed by fully pressing the switch down from off. In this mode only high and turbo are available with a partway press to switch between them and there is no last used memory function.
Note: Always read the operating instructions before first use.
Lockout mode - press and hold switch for more than 1 second
Capable of using 1 x 18650 or 2 x CR123A batteries in emergency situations
Intelligent charging circuit with voltage detection charges safely and rapidly
Integrated power indicator light displays remaining battery power (patented)
Power indicator secondary function displays battery voltage (accurate to 0.1 V)
Stainless steel bezel ring protects the core components from damage
Thermal protection circuit prevents overheating

Test to ANSI/NEMA FL1 standards. The data may vary during real world use due to battery type, individual usage habits and environmental factors.
Note: *The TM26GT has a thermal protection circuit that will automatically reduce the lumen output if the torch reaches 60°C, therefore this is an accumulated run-time. NEVER attempt to cool the torch by submerging it in water as this could result in irreparable water damage.
