I was about to jump into the discussions area to crap all over the lumen rating, as I see cheap flashlights from various brands advertise stupidly high ratings for cheap. But this ain't cheap. So supposedly 300w halogen brightness in a handheld?

Nitecore is a legit manufacturer. And some of their Tiny Monster series of lights are certainly desirable. I would definitely enjoy having one of these. 6,000 lumens for 45 mins is nothing to sneeze at. However, this light was impressive 2 years ago when few lights could pump out this much light. So $300-$400 was not unreasonable. But now one can get 10,000 - 14,000 lumens from an Emisar D18, Astrolux MF01S, or Fireflies ROT66 for $100 or less these days. So even $260 is hard to justify. One should know why they are purchasing this light. If it’s just to impress friends at a party, you can do better for much less. But, if you need a light for serious Search and Rescue, night camping, a steady 2,000 lumens for hours, and $260 doesn’t break your budget, this light could definitely be a contender.

That they are. Living in the LA area as a kid, I remember seeing search lights in the sky for every occasion--from new movie premieres in Hollywood, to a new grocery store opening around the corner. Now when something like that happens, we just get an email--not nearly as exciting from my perspective ;- )

Yeah nowadays do that and you'll have the FBI at your door wondering why you're shining a high powered spotlight into the air.

I'm puzzled why anyone would spend $200-$350 on a 6000-8000 lumen flashlight these days? Sure a year or two ago these lights would have been unique and impressive. But now you have "walls of light" like the Emisar D18, Noctigon Meteor M43, or the Astolux MF01 (and soon MF01S) that are rated for as much as twice the output but are going for about $100-$125.

glennac, The ONLY ONE childish is YOU. Do not come on here with your BS input about how much lumens is needed. Why you don't need high lumens, being real light enthusiast, etc... WASTING posting space here. All people are different and require DIFFERENT LUMEN outputs. REAL FLASHLIGHT collectors like MYSELF have the BRIGHTEST which is currently MS18 100,000 lumens.

Calm down brother! We are just having a peaceful discussion here. No need to be insulting. If you want to be taken seriously here, at BLF or CPF you need to behave like a mature adult and not be so emotional in your responses. Nobody cares how many flashlights you have, how big they are, or how many lumens they put out. That is not always the most important thing about being a flashlight enthusiasts. Occasionally you have some interesting observations. But they are completely obscured by your yelling and outbursts. I'm confident that it is possible to have civil conversation with you. Peace to you man.

this doesn’t come with the batteries. this is a “hobby grade” flashlight. the market for these kinds of toys will want to select batteries (and chargers) that suit their own interests. if you are looking for an “appliance” flashlight beast check out the olight x7r. it has similar pricing, but a different beam pattern, however the battery pack is built in and included. i think nitecore is great and own several of them, fwiw.

If it's any consolation, they say they're included now, 9 months later...

I own this flashlight and have not experienced many of the issues listed below but I need to add that the switch has virtually zero resistance and will turn on if you set the light sideways in a box or bag. I have had this in its pouch and set it on its side and the light comes on. I have had this in a bag deliberately laid so that it will not activate the switch and the switch comes on. The only way I have found to keep the light from coming on is to stand it on its end and hope nothing touches any surface of it or the switch seems to magically activate and you end up with a dead light when you really need it. Not the best design in my opinion. Otherwise, it is super bright and very effective.

couldn’t you just slightly unscrew the battery cap? you don’t need instant on access when the flashlight is in a bag. in fact, it's pretty dangerous/stupid not to do this, unless you are working towards a darwin award. pretty much any high powered flashlight will start a fire if unintentionally triggered in a confined space.

I wonder if this has the same problem the other nitecore TM flashlights have, namely: draining two batteries to death while leaving the other two unmatched.

Which set of batteries comes with this , the stronger batteries give you the 6000 LUMES, I hope that's what comes with it, if battieries even come with it ?

It does come with batteries, they are nitecores IMR 3200MaH 10A I believe maybe 15A but either way it is batteries to produce 6,000 Lumens. The 4,500 lumens is any Li-ion battery. Best flashlight I have ever owner hands down

Please let this drop pass you by. The TM28 is poorly built with springs at the cathode that can 't prevent the batteries from losing contact when you set it down upright or even shake it, making the light turn off.

there are lots of customer reviews that fail to mention your spring issue. nitecore has a 5 year warranty and they are one of the few high end flashlight companies out there. the tm28 is an absolute beast, and i don’t need some hourly job with no benefits selling flashlights to tell you that!
