Product Description
Looking at the Nitecore C2’s unusual rectangular form factor, its shocking output power makes even more sense. Capable of producing 6,500 lumens, the torch is backed by four CREE XHP35 LEDs Read More

The charging unit - i assume it's a transformer-based, consequently 110/120V AC for US. Do you have EU suitable chargers (220/230V AC) ? Or the charger suits both 110 and 230V ?

This looks interesting. It's half the size and weight of my Jetbeam RRT-3 and has over three times the light output, and has a well-designed-looking pocket/belt clip. I actually don't consider "all modes controlled by a single button" a feature, though, because that usually means you have to memorize complex series of button presses, half-presses and holds to get to the mode you want, whereas the RRT-3's magnetic control ring is brilliant and stupidly easy to use. The big problem with one-button-does-everything control schemes is that all too often, the one button does the wrong thing because you didn't manipulate it quite right. I have a Notecore P18, and I love the light itself — it's small, light, bright, easily clippable, and doesn't roll — but dear gods, I hate its control button. I can rarely get it to do what I meant on the first try — sometimes not at all. Currently it won't acknowledge full-press, only half-press. I end up carrying my RRT-26 Raptor as well because the Raptor's controls (featuring that JetBeam magnetic control ring again) work. I'm interested in this light, but I'd be a lot more interested if it had a magnetic slide control or a separate brightness control instead of one-button-does-everything. I'd also be more interested if it charged via USB instead of a 12V vampire, but I imagine Nitecore went with the 12V 1A charger to make the charge time on that 12400mAh battery reasonable. However, Nick Shabazz's review is outright alarming. I wouldn't want this flashlight getting accidentally activated in my pocket, and since the power switch is not recessed, that seems to be scarily easy. If that doesn't bother you, the Drop price seems to be about $30-$50 below current average retail.

Emisar D18 - 18 x SST-20 5000k 14,000 lms Fireflies ROT66 Gen II - 12 x Osram 6500k 10,000 lms Manker MK36 - 6 x Cree XHP50.2 3v 6500k 12,000 lms Nitecore Concept 2 - 4 × CREE XHP35 HD 6500 lms Nitecore TM06S - 4 x CREE XM-L2 U3 4000 lms The most recent addition is the TM06S. I’m amazed at how compact this device is considering it’s a 4 cell light. A surprising delight is the Manker MK36. The roundiness of the body makes it super comfortable to hold. And the 12,000 lumens from such a small package just makes me giggle every time. Turbo modes aside, what makes these lights so useful are the respectable runtimes on High/Med. This can really be handy at a campsite or during a power outage. Emisar - 4000 / 50 mins, 2000 / 1.9 hrs (per TK’s review) Fireflies - 5000 / 2.2 hrs (per 1lumen.com) Manker MK36 - 2800 / 1.3hrs, 1100 / 2.8hrs Nitecore Concept 2 - 2500 / 1.5 hrs, 1000 / 6.5 hrs Nitecore TM06S - 4000 / 1 hrs, 1500 / 4 hrs And on Low all of these will last well over a week of nightly bedside use before needing to be recharged.

Those are a tough set of criteria. 🤔 Every recognizable flashlight brand these days uses a software based UI. And because most enthusiasts want options, UI’s will likely be involved if not complicated. Are you involved with Reddit? They have a form you can fill out with your criteria and post with many more eyes seeing it than here. https://www.reddit.com/r/flashlight/submit?

Can this been seen from outer space? I have an astronaut friend I would like to communicate with via this and Morse code. The long distance charges are in real.

A lithium ion battery will handle 400 daily charge (duty) cycles, which is about a year and a half, until it reaches 3/4 of it's original battery capacity. 1k lumens is bright, especially concentrated into a beam. 6 hours of battery, at what, maybe 2-5 minutes a day (more for those using it for work, biking, etc), you can see more than 400 days worth of duty cycles unless you throw it on the charger every day. Personally, I'd probably get 3-4 years before it reaches it's 3/4 threshold. At that point, either something much better will be in the market, or I'll crack it open myself and replace the battery. It looks like it uses simple hex screws. However... Would I be able to make sure I don't lose this $150 flashlight in the span of 3-4 years? Probably not...

A retail $240 flashlight with a **rechargeable** battery only. Seriously, why? It will be useless in no time.

I get the “built-in battery” issue. But why “useless in no time”? Li-ion cells can have hundreds of recharge cycles. It will be years before a user even gets close to the end-of-life for the battery. In the meantime, you’ve got a 6,000 lumen light for $150. And before anyone poopoos that, who uses Turbo beyond momentary anyways or to impress their friends? Even better though is the 1000 lumens for 6 ½ hours. THAT’s worth the discounted price here. And this light is smaller and more compact than you might think. And ignore the retail price of $240. No one pays full price for a high-powered flashlight unless you have to possess the latest and greatest. There are way too many sales and discounts out there to be worried about the MSRP. This is a great deal. Where else are you going to find this very light for less than $150? Sure, you can get more powerful lights for less, but not everyone is familiar or comfortable with buying from China direct.

Another hard NO to another Drop product... A flashlight without a user serviceable battery? I don't think so. I pay $150 for the flashlight, then when the battery fails and stops holding a charge, which they all do (yes, even lithium ion), I am supposed to just throw out a $150 flashlight, rather than have the ability to replace the battery? That's ludicrous. No thank you...

In my experience, nothing is non-user serviceable, outside the screen of a Surface tablet computer. However, not everyone is willing to get down and dirty with their $150 flashlight after 400 recharge cycles so I do see your point. Same reason that even in 2019, I refuse to let go of my LG V20 because I can, and have, replaced it's battery. A removable battery pack would've been a better choice for this particular flashlight, even if it's using a JST connector.

Nitecore is giving us a tremendous amount of output in a relatively small package with this one. If they can create a version 2.0 with replaceable batteries, USB charging and a recessed activation button, they will have a killer light on their hands.
