The Nitecore P16 Tactical uses a Cree XM-L2 U3 LED to provide a maximum output of 1000 lumens.
Designed for tactical applications, the P16 TAC has an integrated impact resistance mechanism within the body that will keep the battery in place and unaffected by any recoil from shooting if it were mounted to a weapon for hunting purposes or from vibrations that may be present on an active work site.
The P16 TAC is powered by either two CR123A lithium metal non-rechargeable batteries or one 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable battery and can throw the beam a maximum distance of 300 metres when on the highest setting.
The tactical tail switch is seated inside a U shape to provide tail stand capability and to also minimise the chance of accidental activation. The button turns the light on/off as well as operating momentary illumination. Once the light is turned on, the side mode button cycles through the four brightness levels of ultra-lo, low, mid and high. Press and hold the mode button for 1 second accesses the strobe, repeat to change to SOS and again to enter location beacon. A single press will revert back to the standard brightness settings.
The intelligent memory function remembers the last used brightness setting so that when you next turn the torch on it will already be at your preferred brightness. The crenellated bezel can be used to strike glass to break it in an emergency.
A holster, lanyard and stainless steel pocket clip are all included to provide you with a number of ways to carry your torch when not in use.
The torch is compatible with the GM02 gun mount, the RSW1 pressure switch and 40 mm coloured filters, which can all be found under the product accessories tab.
