The Nitecore MH40GT utilises a Cree XP-L HI V3 LED to give a 1000 lumens maximum output and an impressive 803 metres beam range.
Included are two free Nitecore 18650 2300 mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery cells. They can be easily recharged by plugging the supplied UK mains adaptor lead into the charging port, with the batteries inside, and then turning the torch on and the power on at the mains. The blue indicator will blink to indicate charging is in progress.
Featuring a tail switch for momentary illumination and on/off functions, the MH40GT has turbo mode or user defined mode. The turbo mode is accessed by fully tightening the head of the torch and will only come on at turbo output. In this mode the output will raise the temperature of the torch, so after 5 minutes use the MH40GT will automatically lower the brightness to prevent the LED from overheating.
Slightly loosening the head will enter into user defined mode. In this mode, half presses of the tail switch will cycle through high, mid, low, SOS and strobe. Fully press the switch on the desired mode to select it.
For ease of use the intelligent memory circuit will remember the last brightness setting used.
Five brightness levels and three special modes
Integrated indicator in side switch notifies battery power
Features advanced temperature regulation (ATR) technology
Intelligent memory function
Reverse polarity protection
Detachable pocket clip
Anti roll design
Using 4 x Nitecore CR123A lithium metal primary single-use batteries:
Turbo: 1000 lumens; 1 hour, 30 minutes run-time*
High: 325 lumens; 4 hours, 45 minutes run-time
Mid: 88 lumens; 18 hours run-time
Low: 13 lumen; 75 hours run-time
Using 2 x Nitecore 18650 3400 mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery:
Turbo: 1000 lumens; 6 hours, 15 minutes run-time*
High: 325 lumens; 6 hours, 45 minutes run-time
Mid: 88 lumens; 27 hours run-time
Low: 13 lumen; 130 hours run-time
Note: *After 5 minutes use the MH40GT will automatically lower the brightness to prevent the LED from overheating, therefore this is an accumulated run-time.
Tested to ANSI standards, the data is approximate and may vary between torches, batteries and environments.
