The Nitecore MT22A is a compact torch offering a maximum output of 260 lumens and utilises a Cree XP-G2 S3 LED.
It is powered by two AA alkaline batteries or two AA NiMH rechargeable batteries that are installed in the torch side by side, rather than end to end, which gives the torch its compact size and easy to grip shape.
Featuring a tactical tail switch, the MT22A has three brightness levels and strobe. Fully press the switch to turn the torch on and half presses of the button will cycle through high, mid, low and strobe. The default setting is high mode and the torch will revert to this after being switched off for two seconds.
The overheat protection will automatically lower the high brightness setting after 10 minutes of continuous use to protect the LED and prevent it from overheating. The body of the MT22A is made from durable polycarbonate in order to reduce the overall weight and the head is die cast to provide rapid heat dissipation.
A stainless steel titanium plated clip is included so you can easily attach it to a pocket when not in use or if you prefer you can carry it on your wrist using the included lanyard.
Aluminium reflector ensures smooth and powerful beam
High efficiency current circuit board
Toughened ultra-clear mineral glass with anti-reflective coating
Reverse polarity protection
Stainless steel, titanium plated pocket clip
Enhanced rhombic knurling for improved grip capability
High: 260 lumens; 2 hours, 15 minutes run-time*
Mid: 45 lumens; 18 hours run-time
Low: 1 lumens; 180 hours run-time
Note: * The overheat protection will automatically lower the high brightness setting after 10 minutes of continuous use to protect the LED, therefore this is an accumulated run-time.
Tested to ANSI/NEMA FL1 standards using two 2500 mAh AA NiMH batteries. The data is approximate and may vary between torches, batteries and environments.
