The Nitecore P30 is a compact searchlight torch with a maximum output of 1000 lumens from a Cree XP-L HI V3 LED.
A combination of the Cree XP-L HI V3 LED and precision digital optics technology provides extreme reflector performance that results in a concentrated beam with a smooth hotspot that reaches as far as 618 metres.
Powered by either two CR123A non-rechargeable lithium batteries or one 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable battery, the P30 has a run-time of up to 1 hour on high setting. A battery holder for the CR123A batteries is included to make them more secure inside the torch and improve electrical conductivity.
The P30 features five brightness levels and three special modes. The tail switch provides momentary illumination and turns the light on and off, while the side mode switch allows users to select the desired brightness level of ultra-low, low, mid, high or turbo with each press. Strobe, SOS and beacon modes are accessed by holding the side mode switch while the torch is on.
The mode switch also acts as a power indicator that will blink once every two seconds when battery level drops to 50% and blink rapidly when power levels are low (with the light switched on). With the light switched off pressing the side and tail switch simultaneously will display the battery voltage.
The advance temperature regulation (ATR) technology allows the P30 to dynamically adjust output performance based on the internal temperature of the torch in order to protect the LED from overheating and prolong its working life.
Thanks to the 1 inch diameter body, the P30 is compatible with the GM02 weapon mount, bike mount and the Nitecore RSW1 Remote Switch.
Side switch interface provides one-handed operation and easy access to all functions
Built-in indicator light which displays remaining battery power (patented)
Power indicator’s secondary function displays battery voltage (accurate to 0.1 V)
Features advanced temperature regulation (ATR)
Intelligent memory function stores preferred brightness setting
High-efficiency regulation circuit provides unwavering output
Using 1 x Nitecore 18650 3400 mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery:
Turbo: 1000 lumens; 1 hour run-time*
High: 400 lumens; 3 hours run-time
Mid: 220 lumens; 5 hours run-time
Low: 70 lumens; 17 hours run-time
Ultra Low: 1 lumen; 680 hours run-time
Using 2 x Nitecore CR123A lithium metal primary single-use batteries:
Turbo: 1000 lumens; 45 minutes run-time*
High: 400 lumens; 2 hours run-time
Mid: 220 lumens; 3 hours run-time
Low: 70 lumens; 10 hours, 15 minutes run-time
Ultra Low: 1 lumen; 340 hours run-time
Note: *Advanced temperature regulation technology may adjust the lumen output if the torch becomes too hot, to prevent the LED from overheating.
Tested to ANSI/NEMA FL1 standards in laboratory conditions, the data may vary slightly in real world use depending on battery type, individual usage habits and environmental factors.
Important Battery and Battery Charger Information
