The Nitecore CU6 Chameleon is a truly unique product that features two primary light sources (White and Ultra Violet) plus secondary red, green and blue LED's.

Control of these output types is simple thanks to a cleverly designed dual side switch with independent white and colour buttons. The dual switch also includes a power indicator light to let you know when the batteries are low.

The primary white source is derived from a Cree XP-G2 with a maximum output of 440 lumens.

A separate 3 watt ultra violet LED with a wavelength of 365 nanometres provides a very good range for a UV torch, you can expect approximately 10 metres depending upon the background light levels. Ultra Violet is perfect for many applications including Smart Water and SelectaDNA, checking UK bank notes for the correct florescent markings, forensics and many others uses.

In addition to the two primary outputs there are secondary low level red, green and blue LED's. The CU6 also works well as a weapon mounted light with a spring loaded impact absorption mechanism and can be used with the Nitecore RSW1 remote pressure switch.

Powered by a single 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable battery (recommended for the best run-times) or two primary (non-rechargeable) CR123A cells.

Includes belt holster, wrist lanyard, titanium plated pocket clip, removable tactical grip ring and spare O-rings.

Safety Notice:

Our UV products are at the safest end of the UV spectrum (UVA wavelength) however they should only be used by adults and responsible persons. Avoid skin exposure or eye contact. For more UV information please follow this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultraviolet

Great torch, The main features I was looking for were, bright to low white light, Strobe, tactical red light, UV and robust enough to withstand the life ahead of it, I have a Lenser P-7 which is a fantastic torch but I had to carry a separate red, UV and small strobe, so when I found this torch it had all of these requirements and more, I also purchased the double charger and a another spare battery, again a great compact charger with readings on how both charging battery's are doing. The service from Torch Direct was brilliant, I have already recommended them to other work colleagues, I will defenatly be using this company again.

Firstly, the order process here on Torch direct is excellent and informative, letting me know each stage of the process up to telling me the hour long time window for the delivery.

The CU6 itself is so flexible. It gives you a powerful white beam, dimmer red, green and blue options as well as the secondary 3W 365nm UV.

The CU6 does have proper 'black light' with the UV output appearing almost non-existent, that is until you hit something that fluoresces. The security features on bank notes shine out brilliantly. This has a far more powerful UV output than any other UV light I have (and I have a few).

A word of warning, a good UV light shows you just how dirty and dusty you home is, so is not for the faint of heart. The whole kitchen area is best avoided unless you want to spend the next week scrubbing everywhere!

I also had the laser engraving added to the CU6 and this touch of personalisation really makes a difference. It really feels like it is yours

Top marks to Torch Direct and to the CU6!

You may see this option if your order partly or fully contains lithium batteries that are not contained within the item we are shipping. If your postcode is not part of the Mainland UK for postal purposes then we will determine the best way to send your item(s) and in some cases we may have to cancel the order or offer an alternative solution, this is because Royal Mail and couriers have strict rules regarding the transport of lithium batteries and in the case of couriers certain regions of the UK have increased shipping costs.
