Nitecore TINI: Mini flashlight with 380 lumens for $23.94
By now we have introduced some Nitecore flashlights to you, for example the Nitecore Tip and Tube. The company has solutions for everyday use in key ring format as well as flashlights in commercial format. Nitecore is taking care of the former in a newer and even smaller frame, as was the case with the previous comparative models. The Nitecore TINI promises to be a small powerhouse with a maximum output of 380 lumens despite its absolutely manageable size.

As big as a lighter
Available in 7 colours, the miniature torch comes in a compact design and aluminium construction to complement a multifunctional bunch of keys.
Internally, the China gadget has a battery capacity of 280 mAh. This promises a standby availability of up to 365 days or about 60 hours of light duration in one piece. The battery can be powered and charged via a micro-USB connection, eliminating the need for a spare battery.
To achieve the maximum luminosity of 380 lumens, the manufacturer uses a CREE XP-G2 S3 LED. This should guarantee a service life of up to 50000 hours. The colour temperature is between 6500 and 7000 K, i.e. daylight white.
In order to make a simple handling possible, one deliberately does without a lot of bells and whistles and uses only 2 keys in the Tini, which are sufficient for the use of all functions. With the simple switch off and on the flashlight should start to light up after 2 seconds. This buffer practically anticipates an accidental switch-on in the pocket.
The ‘Switch’ button can also be used to adjust the brightness and luminosity of the Tini. To give you a short overview: on the ‘Turbo‘ level it unfolds its full potential and emits light with a luminosity of up to 380 lumens. However, if this is too bright for you, you can configure the brightness by simply pressing the shift key on the top of the TINI.
We have already had good experiences with the manufacturer Nitecore. Also the TINI seems to be no exception. If you have made experiences with the TINI, please let us know in the comments!To the gadget
