2500 Lumen and 7000mw IR Dual Output

The NITECORE CI7 is the ultimate flashlight for night vision hunting or outdoor operations. This dual-output flashlight pushes an incredibly bright 2500 lumens of light, reaching over 300 yards. Rotating the flashlight head instantly turns the CI7 into an adjustable 7000mw long-range IR illuminator. This 940nm IR light is invisible to the human eye, and can only be detected by night vision or thermal vision. Providing both high power infrared and white light, this light enables you to quickly switch from stealth maneuvers to swift actions, which makes CI7 an indispensable tool for scouting, search and rescue, hunting, and law enforcement.

One Hand Operation

The user-friendly NITECORE CI7 is designed to get you the right kind and amount of light you need when you need it. The end cap tail switch is capable of momentary-on and constant-on for both white and IR light. The improved “Strobe Ready” mode switch provides instant turbo or strobe access and cycles through brightness settings while preventing accidental activation.

Durable Construction

The CI7 comes with all the standard features you expect on a NITECORE flashlight, IP68 waterproof, mode memory, high-efficiency constant current, and advanced temperature regulation, the CI7 is an ideal flashlight.

3 of 5 Needs upgraded 5000mAH battery October 12, 2021
Reviewer: CJ from Papillion, NE United States  
Such an incredible Flashlight but lacks full potential not being able to use the larger/better 21700 5000mAh batteries. Oh, why isn't this upgraded. The IR is so crucial to me, it makes such a great companion to my night vision goggles. I'm just frustrated that all my batteries aren't the same or all USB-C rechargeable. Standardization makes things so much better and user friendly.

5 of 5 Amazing lEquipment October 7, 2021
Reviewer: ScottWhitney from Gainesville, VA United States  
I just purchased the CI7 White/IR combo light which is a rare capability.  This Nitecore product competes directly against the SureFire Vampire at 1/3 the cost.
Nitecore provided a quick turnaround and their rugged package ensures delivery without damage or loss
This is now my sixth Nitecore product and they are my first stop for lighting.

Great light.  Eyelet for lanyard attachment in tail cap would make it perfect. The clip falls off under heavy use.

5 of 5 NITECORE CI7 2500 Lumen Tactical Flashlight w/IR January 12, 2021
Reviewer: AAaLouis J Powell from Pasadena, MD United States  
All I can say is WOW!!! I have been using a Mini-mag xenon bulb flashlight with a true 940nm filter
on my Sight-Mark Wraith with good results but, this thing is like comparing a candle to a
Airport searchlight!!! Having the ability to lower the illumination is a real blessing. If you don't
need 7000 lumens it is nice to lower the range to something more manageable. Not all shots
in the dark are 400 yards. The added benefit is that though the IR leds can be seen when lit
on high levels the are scarcely noticeable  at  the lower settings. Less chance of spooking what
you are shooting with either camera or gun.
