I just went to their site and it shows $129. How did you manage that price?
Seems like a very nice 2x18650 side-by-side light from Nitecore. I have the similar Sunwayman T45C light in both the regular production and the custom modded T45Cvn from Vinh. And I'm familiar with the Fenix TK35. Interestingly, I note they're selling the Fenix at the local R.E.I. store but haven't jumped on it yet as I was thinking about this light. I wonder how it stacks up against those? Any thoughts?
I note the big 72-segment MT-G2 emitter is more of a flood than a throw type. I'm more of a throw type of guy but I'm okay with a few nice floody lights too. I like the rotary switch arrangement.
The P36 is a wonderful flashlight that hits on almost everything it was designed for.
The P36 is a fine general purpose flashlight with a wide hot spot and good flood characteristics. On its highest output levels, it also has decent throw. ANSI FL 1 ratings are 22,300cd and 300m. The only issue I have right now is its high parasitic drain. Selfbuilt measured standby current at ~2.5mA.
- A great neutral-white MT-G2 emitter.
- Ten well-spaced modes ranging between a nominal 2 and 2000 lumens.
- A splendid user interface that uses a simple mode dial to select any output level.
- Direct access to low, high, and strobe from off.
- Direct access to strobe from any mode when on.
- Good runtimes on 2x 18650. With 10 levels, you have great control over battery life.
That leaves only one big question: reliability. I'll just have to wait to find out about that.
Did I miss it in the review? Can anyone say what the maximum current draw is on this light on L10?
