The MH27UV has a maximum output of 1000 lumens from the Cree XP-L HI V3 LED, offering four brightness levels in total, plus independent red, blue and Ultraviolet LEDs. Special modes of strobe, SOS, location beacon and police warning signals are also available.

Featured is a 365 nm wavelength 500 mW Ultraviolet LED which can be used in gemological appraisal, document examination, currency detection, forensic science, Smart Water and SelectaDNA and many other applications. Low illumination red light is useful for tactical applications such as preserving night vision and animal spotting, while the blue light can be used to trace blood.

Powered by a single rechargeable 18650 lithium-ion battery (not included), the MH27UV has the ability to charge the battery inside the torch. Simply turn the torch on first and then plug the supplied charging lead into the micro USB port and the other end into the computer, or with suitable adaptor it can be plugged into the mains or car charger. The blue indicator light will blink every 1.5 seconds to show charging is in progress and will go solid blue once charging is complete.

Alternatively the MH27UV can be powered by two RCR123A lithium-ion cells or two CR123A non-rechargeable lithium cells, however these batteries types can NOT be charged within the torch.

By utilising the revolutionary SC5 technology that the Cree XP-L HI V3 LED employs, the MH27UV produces a powerful beam capable of reaching up to 462 meters, which is normally only achievable with a searchlight with a much larger reflector.

Featuring a tail switch for momentary illumination and on/off functions, there is also + and - side mode switches that cycle through the modes in the order of UV, red, blue, ultra-low, mid, high and turbo when pressing the + button and in reverse order when pressing the - button. Pressing the + and - simultaneously will enter into the specials modes, cycling through blue flash, red flash, blue/red alternate flash, strobe, beacon and SOS modes using the + and - buttons. Directly access turbo mode by holding the + button with the torch on, and directly access UV by holding the - button with the torch on.

For ease of use the intelligent memory circuit will remember the last setting used, apart from location beacon and SOS.

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

Quality manufactured torch. Nice size for pocket torch with plenty plenty of power. Various settings easy to operate. I bought the very powerful Nitecore 3400mAh 18650 rechargeable battery. The charging connection can be tricky. Torch must be turned on first. Then I used sellotape to fix the charging cable to the torch while it charges, because it can slip off charge if not careful . Overall, this model satisfies every torch need in my opinion. Highly recommended.

Nitecore MH27UV

Spent a LONG time trying to decide on a torch for work. Glad I chose this one. Superb! So easy and intuitive to use once you get the hang of it (which didn't take long). Service was great. Free head torch is great too!

Iíve had this torch now for a few weeks and I have to say itís the best torch I have, even bettter than the nitecore TM15. The Nitecore MH27UV has a very powerful and bright main LED which is bright enough for most uses. The other red, blue and UV are great for other purposes.

The torch is well made as usual for Nitecore and is a much easier size over my TM15, can easily fit in my pocket and hardly know itís there!

Torch Direct of course always a pleasure to purchase from, they keep you informed when order is dispatched and if you need to contact them, very prompt and helpful.

An impressive torch
Friday, 5 August 2016  | 

I bought this product to keep in my day pack for when I am visiting archaeological sites and tombs in Egypt. I was attracted to the different level of beams and the inclusion of the special modes in case of an emergency situation. The torch has a good weight and fits nicely into my hand. The tactical ring is also helps to keep a firm grip and will allow me to place the torch on the ground whilst taking photos or making notes. So far, I have only used the torch in the local park and woodlands. The first beam level is ideally suited for highlighting close up items such as maps. I have the second beam level is ideal for walking around and exploring. It highlights a good field of vision without blinding anyone you may meet. The third and fourth beam levels are intense lights and are very much adequate for illuminating wide areas and distant features. The strobe, location and SOS modes will certainly attract other people attention. The beam is very bright. I would be cautious of using the strobe mode near anyone who has epilepsy as I'm sure it may active a seizure. The blue and red lights are bright and illuminate a reasonably sized area. The police warning signals mode has also provided me with some amusement. For unsuspecting targets, the torch can easily be mistaken for the lights of a police car. My only negative comment is that the holster makes the torch seem bulky. The torch will only go into the holster tail first, which may be problematic for some.
