Inefficient and unreliable August 8, 2018
Reviewer: S. Kim  
Light does not last nearly as long as advertised. This is my least used light yet the one I have to charge most frequently. Doesn't last 30 minutes on turbo. Doesn't last 2 hours on high.

Most troubling for a $100+ flashlight, it stopped working after a 3 foot drop. For a premium product at a premium price, I can't believe it didn't survive a single drop. This is on a wood floor, mind you, not concrete or asphalt.  I've had maglights that have lasted me over 5 years and survived multiple drops. All my cell phones have survived multiple 3 foot drops, and some of those were dropped naked, without a case. This is unacceptable. I have to believe that is a design flaw that extends to the entire nitecore line. The obviously do no product testing. I will never buy another nitecore product again. Learn from my experience and stay away from Nitecore.
