Sometimes you need a little bit of extra light on your evening walk, and sometimes you want the power to turn night into day. That’s where this 9800 lumen beast of a flashlight comes into play. Nitecore’s TM9K TAC is a heavy duty tactical flashlight that sports not just one or two measlyLEDs, but nine XP-L2 emitters from CREE that’ll output an insane amount of light in a relatively small footprint. This is a light that should be in your bag on your next camping trip, hanging out in your car’s trunk in case of emergencies, or kept around the house for when the power goes out.
Measuring in at just under five inches long, 1.57” wide, and 1.1” in height, the TM9K TAC is surprisingly carryable. Weighing in at just 7.71oz, the light won’t weigh you down too much either. Inside the light, there’s an integrated 5000mAh Li-ion battery that you can recharge via the included USB-C cable. Six lighting modes range from an ultra low 30 lumens, all the way up to 9800 lumens on turbo with an optional high output strobe. The TM9K can throw light up to 306 yards, capable of illuminating objects over three football fields away. Operation is easy, thanks to the dual function tail switch that can be tapped for an instant momentary burst of light, or clicked down for continuous illumination.
