The Nitecore R40 is a rechargeable LED torch with a maximum output of 1000 lumens in high mode from it's Cree XP-L HI V3 LED.
It is powered by a tailored Nitecore 26650 NL2650DW 5000 mAh lithium-ion battery, and this battery is the only battery that can be used and charged inside the R40.
Five brightness levels of ultra-low, low, mid, high and turbo are available, as well as three special modes of strobe, SOS and beacon.
Designed for easy one handed operation, the R40 features a dual side switch with an integrated power level indicator. Each time batteries are inserted or the power button is pressed with light off, the power indicator light will blink to display remaining battery power.
The power switch controls on/off, standby and gives instant access to ultra-low, while the mode button cycles through the brightness outputs, gives instant access to turbo and controls strobe/SOS modes. A double click of the mode switch from the off position will immediately enter strobe mode.
The R40 has versatile charging options and can be charged via two different methods. The first is via the wall mount stand or desktop cradle which both have inductive coils concealed inside them that allow energy to be transferred between the torch and cradle through an electromagnetic field. Simply secure the torch onto one of the charging cradles and they connect to the mains charging cable. The wall stand charging cradle can be wall mounted for convenience with the pre-assigned holes at the top and bottom of the cradle (fixtures not included).
The second method of charging is via the included micro USB cable. Lift the dust cover from the micro USB port on the base of the torch and insert the cable. The other end of the cable can go directly into a USB port on a computer/laptop or can be inserted into a suitable USB mains/car adaptor.
The R40 can be locked to prevent accidental activation by pressing and holding both buttons while the torch is on for over one second.
