The Nitecore TIP SS is the stainless steel version of the TIP 2017 key ring torch which updates the regular TIP with new features such as the robust multi-purpose clip, daily mode and constant-on mode and ultralow standby power draw (<5uA), which allows it to be in standby for up to 1 year.
The TIP SS is available in three colours that all feature a stainless base but each have a different finish. The Tropical is coated with PVD Titanium offering a distinctive bright iridescent finish while the Jet Black is also coated with PVD Titanium but offers a low profile, elegant look. The Glacier is finished off with surface polishing for a simple yet stylish design.
A maximum output of 360 lumens is possible from the Cree XP-G2 S3 LED and throws the beam a maximum of 74 metres when in the momentary turbo mode. It has up to 46 hours run-time on the lowest setting and is powered by a built-in 500 mAh lithium-ion battery.
The battery is charged via a micro USB charging port (cable not included) and displays a red LED indicator while charging, that goes green once charging is complete. A battery protection circuit is incorporated that provides over-discharge, over-charge and anti short circuiting protection.
A dual interface switch features a power button and a mode button. The power button turns the tip on/off and provides direct access to the low setting by holding the button down for over one second from off. The mode button will cycle through low, mid and high with each press and also gives access to turbo mode from any state by holding the button down. The turbo is momentary and once the mode button is released the TIP SS will go back to the previous mode.
The TIP SS also features either daily mode or constant mode. When in daily mode the light will only activate for 30 seconds if untouched, which is useful if you are quickly using the light to open a door or accidentally turn the light on without knowing. If you press the button again within 3 seconds of the light going out, the light will provide a one off constant illumination.
When in constant mode the light will stay on until you press the power button to turn the light off. To switch between daily and constant mode, simply hold both the power and mode buttons down at the same time until the light flashes once to indicate daily mode or twice to indicate constant mode.
Remaining battery power is indicated by pressing the mode switch while the Tip is turned off. A red LED will flash three times at +50% power, two times for below 50% power and one flash indicates the power is below 10%.
This updated TIP SS comes with a multi-purpose clip, that once fitted covers both buttons to prevent accidental activation, covers the micro USB port to prevent any damage and also protects against water and dust ingress. The clip is also aids in clothing attachment so that the TIP SS can easily be worn on a belt or the peak of a cap for hands free use.
