It is the world’s first line of torches to feature smart selector ring technology, which is a third generation technology. The state-of-the-art ring allows its user to have one handed operation, and rapidly switch between all its 6 modes as well as its infinite brightness adjustments.

The smooth click on this magnetic ring gives the user immense tactical feedback in any kind of darkness. The user can smoothly select the brightness levels by simply rotating this ring.

On the other hand, its exclusive knurled surface gives its user a firm grip on the light, gloved or wet. Stuart John from Tshirtprofessional has also confirmed this. So, you are getting firm grip for sure.

Latest LED

Nitecore SRT3 flashlight utilizes the new CREE XM L2 LED, so that it provides a maximum output of up to about 550 lumens. It is this kind of versatility that makes this flashlight a perfect choice for outdoor professionals all over the world.

The secondary LED built in its reflector gives the user blue and red color outputs that are suitable for all manners of tactical and law enforcement applications.

Protection And Safety

The precision reflector of the flashlight is properly protected from damage and drops by a stainless steel bezel. In times of emergency, this doubles up in the form of glass breaker.

In addition to this, a titanium coated clip allows the user to clip it anywhere they like. The extender tube allows the user to use AA size batteries as well.

It is ideal for travel as the user can easily find these batteries anywhere across the globe.

It has a stainless steel construction with six quickly switchable functions. It is constructed with aluminum aero grade alloy.

It has a high-efficiency circuit board that provides up to about 200 hours run time on its lowest output level. In addition to this, it is waterproof up to 2 meters of water, and it also impacts resistant up to about 1.5 meters.


1. Can A 17500 Battery Fit Well Into The Product?

No, the internal diameter of the light is too small to accommodate 17500 battery.

2. How Easy Is It To Rotate The Mode selector?

The rotating ring is pretty solid, and you can feel the click as you switch. The groove ring sets in each time you rotate it.

3. As It Uses AA With The Extender Can It Also Use 18650?

No, it cannot use 18650 as both are different types of batteries. In addition to this, they are not similar in size.


I would recommend this product to each and everyone who reads this review. The flashlight is exceptionally incredible when it comes to performance, efficiency, and reliability.

It is such a wonderful product that you will find yourself using it time and time again for all types of work- home, tactical, or just around your vehicle. This is an ideal backup or secondary flashlight to match up a high powered long throw prime light.
