Nitecore Tube review:

It one button with 3 settings: Low, High, graduated. Click once for low, twice for high, press and hold for graduated brightness. It's rechargeable with micro USB (not included). It's small, light, very bright for a keychain flashlight. No more button batteries to fumble with, plug in and recharge (as long as you have a micro charge, which you probably do). Hardly noticeable to carry, but easy to use and always handy. It's a nice piece of kit for $10US. Good bargain, great value.

Nice review Dominator.

I DEMAND TO KNOW THE LUMENS!!


Just kidding, I looked it up. 45 on high. Nice for such a tiny little guy. Kind of a dick move not sending a cable to charge it though.

Oops minor detail :)
1-45 lumens, punches above its weight! I don't mind about the charging cable...I already have them. It was only 10 bucks, if it kept the cost down, good with me.

I finally ended up with a Tube!

 

It was thrown in with this Fenix TK51, that just arrived in today's mail :-)

I've really been loving this EA11.  Tremendous power (900 ANSI lumens).  Not-so-fantastic run times, but to have this kind of power in something this tiny - incredible!

Agreed. The control ring on the SRT-3 is superb. I love mine!

 

IMG_6328.jpg

Left to Right:

  1. SRT-3, running on a 14500 battery
  2. EA4, running on 4 AA Duracell LSD ("Duraloops")
  3. MT21, running on 2 AA Eneloops
  4. P25, running on a Panasonic 18650 IMR

I'm kind of tempted to pick up the SRT-5 and SRT-7.  They're really nice lights.   Of the bunch, the MT21a is the only that cannot tailstand.

 

The EA4 throws beautifully, and has numerous hidden modes (strobe, S.O.S., beacon, etc.).  People weren't kidding, when they called it a compact spotlight lol.

 

The MT21a is a shockingly nice little 2AA light that's not a whole lot bigger than a 2AA Mini Maglite, but blows it completely out of the water. It has a wonderful combination of both spot and spill, and two modes (programmable), with the twist of a head.

 

IMG_1871.jpg

Maglite 2AA with Terralux 140-lumen LED upgrade module, and Nitecore MT21A

 

The P25 is in-light rechargeable, via micro USB cable.  Operation via rear, or side switch.  The Blue light in the side switch will blink when the battery is running low.  That's a wonderful thrower, as well, with a nice, deep aluminum reflector.  Really slick light.  It's even built to be weapon-mountable (not that I actually own any weapons, but if you're looking for something like that, this can do it :-)

 

No complaints, here :-)

Looking very nice.

The Nitecore Tube is great. Very solid feel to the button and the recharge function is a major plus.

 

I also have a Nitecore SRT7 which I'm a big fan of.

nitecore-srt7-special-modes.jpg

 

PROS

• Very bright

• Easy to change modes

• Lots of modes

• The 'police' blue and red flashing function is a big plus. Would be ideal in an emergency to notify people that something is up.

• Pulse function is strong.

• Looks great in grey - would match well if your other items are titanium, blackwash etc.

 

CONS

• No narrow-wide focus for the main beam - only brightness

• Not sure what purpose the green, red and blue beams are - the basically cast no usable light

• Probably a little bit too large for most people to carry every day, although I do

 

I also bought the Nitecore recharger and it is a revelation. It recharges batteries in one hour or less that other chargers take overnight to finish. And it also has an indicator so you can see how far along the recharge is.

I don't know about green, but blue and red have been used in night situations to red maps and the like without providing too much of a light for people to see you, and also doesn't wreak havoc on your natural night vision once your eyes have acclimatized to the dark.
