The Nitecore TUP is a revolutionary pocket torch with features such as the multi-functional OLED display screen, daily mode and demo mode, advanced power cut-off technology for an ultra-low parasitic drain of only 1µA.

A maximum output of 1000 lumens is possible from the Cree XP-L HD V6 LED and the total reflective optic lens provides a soft uniform light that can shine up to 180 metres distance.

The OLED display provides information about the current status of the TUP when the light is turned on. It successively shows the battery level/voltage, lumen output, the user mode and the run-time remaining. After the screen goes out it can be reactivated by pressing the mode button. There is also a display demonstration function, but it is for demonstration purposes only and not a reflection of the light status.

The operational buttons comprise of a power button and a mode button. The power button turns the TUP on with a short press and then the mode button cycles through ultra-low, low, mid and high with each press. A single press of the power button will turn the light off. The TUP will remember the last used brightness level the next time it is turned on.

Turbo is accessed with the light on or off by holding the mode button down and is a momentary function that will return to the previous state once the mode button is released. Ultra-low can be instantly accessed while the light is off by holding down the power button.

The TUP also features either daily mode or demo mode. When in demo mode the light will only activate for 30 seconds with a timer showing on the display and if untouched in this time the light will go out, which is useful if you are quickly using the light to open a door or accidentally turn the light on without knowing. This mode is recommended if the TUP will only be used occasionally for short time periods.

When in daily mode the light will stay on until you press the power button to turn the light off. To switch between daily and demo mode, simply hold both the power and mode buttons down at the same time until the light flashes once to indicate demo mode or twice to indicate daily mode and the screen will also display the selected mode.

To prevent accidental activation, the TUP has two lockout modes. Lockout 1 is a half lockout mode and disables the use of the power button, however you can still hold down the mode button to access turbo should you still need partial access to light in an emergency. This is activated by holding down the power button while the light is on until the screen shows a padlock icon with a 1.

Lockout 2 is a full lockout mode and disables all output functions. It is accessed the same way as lockout 1, however you continue to hold the button longer until the screen shows the padlock icon with a 2.

The built-in 1200 mAh lithium-ion battery is charged via a micro USB charging port (cable not included). Blue LED indicators built into the switch will blink slowly while charging is in progress and turn solid blue once charging is complete. The screen will also show the battery level and display a full battery icon once the battery is fully charged. A full charge takes approximately 3 hours, 30 minutes. A battery protection circuit is incorporated that provides over-discharge, over-charge and anti short circuiting protection.

Remaining battery power is indicated by pressing the mode switch while the TUP is turned off and the OLED screen will display the current stats. When the battery voltage is below 3.4 V the power indicator beneath the buttons will flash blue every 2 seconds to inform the user to charge the battery.

The advanced temperature regulation module allows the TUP to regulate its output and adapt to the ambient environment to maintain optimal performance.

An included carabiner key ring allows you to easily attach the TUP to your keys or a bag strap so that it is always on hand, or you can use the deep carry pocket clip to securely hold it in your pocket or attach to the peak of a cap for hands free use.

Possibly the best torch I have ever bought!
Thursday, 29 August 2019  | 

Here is a review on my Nitecore TUP-BLK torch.
I now find I take this torch with me everywhere I go. It is small, powerful, when you want it to be & it can be used discreetly if needed, such as looking in at the kids when they are asleep. I use my torch a lot, but so far I have only charged it twice after owning it for 3 months! I would say it takes a bit longer than the time stated, but thatís a small price to pay for such a brilliant torch. As I say, the torch is small, but very powerful. Itís capability for going up to 1000 lumens is an important one, I have only used it once to scare a potential intruder off, but it worked, he was running away from me as I had my torch on max, itís a great deterrent, much better than caring a knife of any sort. I would recommend this torch to anyone who might need to use something to find their keys they dropped outside in the dark etc. It has loads of uses as it is so small. I know itís expensive! But itís worth it, I think.
Best wishes all Mister.
