The Nitecore P05 uses a Cree XM-L2U2 LED to provide a maximum output of 460 lumens when using a 16340/RCR123A lithium-ion rechargeable battery. It can also be powered using a non-rechargeable CR123A lithium metal battery which will produce a lower output of 420 lumens on the maximum setting.
There brightness settings as well as strobe are available. The torch is turned on and off with the tactical tail switch and can also be half pressed for momentary illumination. Once the torch is on the patented metal mode lever switch can be pressed to cycle through high, mid and low outputs.
The Strobe Ready™ mode switch provides instant access to strobe with the light off by holding the switch down and once released will turn off. It can also be accessed with the torch on by holding the switch for 0.2 seconds and strobe will remain on until the mode button is pressed to return to regular modes or the tail switch turns the torch off.
The P05 also features a built in power indicator that is activated when the battery is inserted into the torch and the tail is tightened. Three blinks means the battery is over 50% charged, two blinks means it is below 50% and one blink means below 10%.
Available in a choice of either a black body or a pink body. The pink version has been designed in partnership with the Breast Cancer Foundation, to contribute in the fight against cancer.
