Blazing Bright 1800 Lumen Beam

Welcome the smallest 1800 lumen tactical flashlight. NITECORE P18 takes the Precision series to the next level sporting a die-cast aluminum alloy unibody, a silent tactical switch and a red LED. Featuring a CREE XHP35 HD LED, P18 is capable of a blazing bright 1800 lumen output. Use the P18 for search and inspection with a throw distance up to 199 yards, or silently switch to ultralow, low, mid, high or turbo for up close and general uses. Three special modes are great for tactical and emergency situations.

Compact and Easy to Use

Comfortably carry the NITECORE P18 in your pocket, backpack and car with its 4.5 inch long, 1 inch diameter compact body and a detachable clip. A silent tactical switch provides easy access to momentary and constant output while a durable, metal side switch independently controls the auxiliary red LEDs for low light tactics. Enjoy direct access to the previous memorized brightness level with the mode memorization.

Long Lasting Runtime

Powered by the included 1x 18650 li-ion battery (>8A output), P18 offers a 220-hour max runtime so you will spend more time out in the field and less time charging. When it is time to charge, a red power indicator reports the remaining battery level.

P18 May 19, 2019
Reviewer: DEdwards from Chalfont, PA United States  
Great light.  Just a little more complicated operating than it should be.  Even with the directions, it took me some time to figure this out.

pleased with service May 18, 2019
Reviewer: MicMhael Rusaw from Norfolk, NY United States  
I have bought at least 10 or more flash lights of different sizes and each time the service has been outstanding.  I even have called them with questions on the operation of certain flashlights and they have been very happy to explain my problem and how to correct.  I am very pleased with this company.
