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.

5 of 5 Very Functional and Well Made Light! March 23, 2024
Reviewer: Kathleen Veitch from Dawsonville, GA United States  
I love that this small light packs, a big punch having 2500 lumens of light. I also like the infrared function for when I am taking nighttime photos with my infrared camera. It really helps to fill in light without blowing out the shot. Well done, Nightcore!

3 of 5 Fair February 11, 2023
Reviewer: Rob from Concord, NC United States  
The light is pretty decent …. But the IR illumination even on the highest setting was sub par…. I love my other nitecore products but this one missed the mark for its price point.

5 of 5 Awesome light(s) November 11, 2021
Reviewer: Robert Donahue from Oakdale CA  
This is a great light for my night scope with its IR Illuminator plus blinding white light !!!
Great price and  fast shipping. I only wish it included the special rated battery with it rather than an add on purchase. I did not realize the light did NOT include the battery as the other 4 Nightcore lights I bought DID include batteries.
I’ll need to place another order to get one to fully experience the light options.
