The Nitecore P26 uses a Cree XP-L HI V3 LED to provide a maximum output of 1000 lumens.
Designed for tactical applications, the P26 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. It also has a tactical tail switch that can provide momentary on function, a strobe function for self defence and a crenulated bezel to break a window in an emergency.
The P26 is powered by either two CR123A lithium metal non-rechargeable batteries, two RCR123A/16340 lithium-ion rechargeable batteries or one 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable battery and can throw the beam a maximum distance of 310 metres when on the highest setting.
The tail switch provides momentary operation by half press and holding the button and turns the light on/off with a full press of the button. With the torch turned on, the brightness level is selected with the innovative rotary switch by turning it anti-clockwise to go from ultra low and gradually increase the brightness until the turbo level is reached. If you continue to rotate the switch past the turbo level the strobe mode will activate.
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 tactical tail switch is seated inside a U shape to provide tail stand capability and to also minimise the chance of accidental activation. The advanced temperature regulation module allows the P26 to regulate its output and adapt to the ambient environment to maintain optimal performance.
The torch is compatible with the GM02 gun mount and the RSW1 pressure switch, which can be found under the product accessories tab.
Tactical tail button and side rotary switch
Integrated spring-loaded impact absorption mechanism
Stainless steel pocket clip
Tail stand capability
Turbo: 1000 lumens; 1 hour run-time; 310 m beam range
Ultra Low: 0.5 lumen; 500 hours run-time; 7 m beam range
Strobe: 1000 lumens
Please note: Advanced temperature regulation technology allows the P26 to dynamically adjust the output performance according to it's temperature to prevent damaged from over heating. The turbo run-time is tested without the advanced temperature regulation, therefore results may vary between torch, battery and environment.
Tested to ANSI/NEMA FL1 standards using 1 x Nitecore 3500 mAh 18650 lithium-ion battery. The infinite brightness adjustment goes from 0.5 to 1000 lumens, therefore the run-time are provided for the lowest and highest outputs.
