Can the beam width be adjusted on this unit?

All of my LED flashlights (even my headlight) have adjustable beams , which is why I asked.
I was intrigued by the super dim mode on this one...

Yeah, the more average consumer oriented brands like Ledlenser will have them, but many of these "enthusiast" lights from Chinese brands don't tend to have them. When they do, you will often see an aspheric lens in front of them.

I posted below in a previous post, a diffuser cap option in order to at least to get 2 types of beam for this light.
Maybe if it had a charging port it would be worth fifty bucks...
Thanks, Massdrop! I'll pass on this - too heavy. But if you can arrane a drop on the NU25 headlamp, count me in!
I have the 18650 battery model of this and it's been amazing. After using those quick charge lithium cells, I don't know that I can go back to AA batts. Sure, you can buy them anywhere, but it's hard to beat rechargable lithium batteries. I have at least 4 nitecores, and all except the keychain ones are 18650 cells.
it has two buttons, one for mode and one for power? how does operation of this work; can somebody give me an example of use?

Turn it on with the power button, then select your brightness by cycling through the mode button. Flashlight can be set to remember the brightness mode you last used and will go to this when you turn it back on.
I am very excited that this is dropping again!
I will be buying another.
The one I bought previously is doing FINE. Even after getting some internal corrosion after I left it outside in -11C for a couple days and a battery cracked and leaked. Cleaned it up with electrical contact cleaner fluid and it's working right-as-rain.
Even at 60 bux, I'll buy it.

Is there any chance that this flashlight will ship early? I'd order a couple if I could get them by 12/25.
I have paid for a nitecore head torch it has not been sent despite it passing the date on the deal. Massdrop still don’t know when it will be sent
After slightly more then a year and only pulling the battery cover off twice, the threads on the body of the torch are stripped out to the point of being unusable. Neither Massdrop nor Nitecore themselves were any help. Very disappointed, since I really liked this torch
Now this is a FLASHLIGHT!!!
Possibly the best flashlight I have ever owned.

It's wonderful around the farm, (with shorter days, I'm moving hay after dark), it was a godsend when we had a wind-storm that took out power for a couple days.
Hope they drop this again. I'll buy another.
I recommend owners of this light to look into purchasing a diffuser; Nitecore's NFD34 fits perfectly and can be found for a few dollars.

Since the beam profile is narrow and the hot spot is quite intense, the diffuser will light up a larger area in front of you and makes it easier on the eyes while focusing on nearby things, such as when reading.

I think it really turns it into an all-purpose light. It also doubles as a protective cap.



I picked one of these up the last go round. I wanted a nice bright and sturdy light that ran on easy to find batteries for emergency scenarios. I had 3 lights including this one for the recent evacuation for hurricane Irma. We were without power and a generator for about week where I had evacuated to.

I ended up liking this light so much that when I got power at my place and headed home I left this light with my family member who'd we'd been staying with since they weren't expected to get power back for at least a few more days and possibly a week.

The first thing I did when I got home was went on Amazon and picked up 2 more for about $70 per.

Now that I see it here, I am tempted to grab a 3rd or 4th.

$60 and free shipping on eBay. A hefty torch. Feels good in the hand, light transitions are solid. Highly recommend for EDC.
FYI Just purchased on eBay for $60, includes lanyard, and belt carrying case. Asking price was $71.99, made an offer for $55, and settled at $60. Free shipping, 10 day delivery. What's the deal, Massdrop? :(
is this thing really 1000 lumen.. sound marketing hype to me.. can anyone confirm this?

Yep. Very focused, though. This is not a floody light.

I took mine on a recent trip to Africa - awesome torch, for sure. While on a 'night drive' with a Game Ranger driving, they handed out 2 other torches for folks in the vehicle to hopefully spot game. Well now - let me tell you that when we came upon 1 Male Lion, 2 females, a family of Rhino, and a spotted hyena, I broke out my torch and it was as good as the ones that were provided on the drive. This was in Kruger just outside of Skukuza. Buy this with confidence!
