The Niteye MSC10 is a unique everyday carry flashlight. Its compact size allows it to be taken anywhere and its innovative interface truly sets it apart from the pack. Powered by a single CR123 battery, the MSC10 generates 280 lumens with its advanced XM-L U2 LED. The light is activated using the tail switch and modes are selected by rotating the magnetic control ring, also located at the tail. Modes include a high mode, a strobe mode, and a user-defined low setting. To select your desired low output, set the ring to the low position and press-and-hold the tail switch. Once the switch is held for more than a second, the output will grow and dim alternately, allowing you to stop the dimming at the exact output you're looking for. The ability to customize your low setting adds a level of versatility to the MSC10 that is lacking in other devices. You can choose to have an ultra-low lumen setting ideal for map reading, or a more mid-range output more suitable to searching through a tent or confined space. The MSC10 is built from tough aluminum components and features O-ring sealed parts that are resistant to water, dirt, and dust. An red/green LED power indicator on the tail switch keeps you informed of your battery life.

  • Anodized aircraft grade aluminum body
  • IPX-8 Water resistance

Half the Price
March 19, 2015
I needed something that was not too bright and had a variable brightness control. In one of the settings one can press and hold the endcap and it will change the brightness. The highest setting can not be changed only the one where you twist the endcap to the setting just below the highest brightness setting. Sometimes I work in low light setting on laptops and this is perfect and it was half the price of all other leds in its class. It is well made and seems very durable. Also one can use a nitecore rechargeable battery and I am happy that this flashlight will take it. Some flashlights in it's class either do not work with rechargeable batteries at all or in a limited manner. Check your owner's manual to be sure. Flashlights like Thrunite work only with their rechargeable batteries. I have not found another flashlight like the Niteye in its class and quality that has a variable light control for such a low cost. One caution: if you twist the endcap to just before the strobe, the endcap will turn either green or red depending on the battery life and then turn off. IT IS NOT the candle light setting. The candle light setting is done using the variable control. The variable control gives you from 8 lumen to 150 lumen and can last on the lowest setting up to 10 hours. The highest setting is 280 lumen and will last one hour or more depending on the battery's milliampere hour rating. The higher the milliampere hour rating the longer a flashlight can be used. I have several LED flashlighs but for comparison purposes here I have a Nitecore EC1 (at a max of 280 lumen) which works fine except for the off and on control plastic cover which wears off but the light comes with a replacement and I have a Fenix PD22 G2 (at a max of 210 lumen). The Nitecore can be used with rechargeable batteries, the Fenix can not. The Nitecore has a narrower beam than the Niteye but the Niteye has a wider even dispersion. If your working on equipment your probably going to want a wider dispersion flashlight. If you walking at night your probably going to want a narrower beam. The Fenix was my choice to use for work, but I could not use it with a rechargeable battery and the battery life was not very good. The non rechargeable batteries CR123 are not cheap. THe Nitecore tended to focus light narrowly and if I upped the control it was too bright in the center and too dark on the edges. The Niteye so far is my best choice for working on equipment. Just keep in mind that it is a challenge to find a LED flashlight that meets one's needs and price point. They all have unique qualities that can be a deal breaker or a deal maker. One more thing I have noticed: I often ride my bicycle at night. You want at least a 1000 lumen LED flashlight and make sure it is the cool white color LED. For me I can see with the cool white much better at night than one that has the neutral color light. IT does come down to personal preference one. If you have driven a car with HDI lights at night with a slight bluish color and compare that to the standard headlights that come with most cars then it is which one can you to see the road with better for you. It is a very individual choice based on your eyes and how you perceive light. Basically for me I would need a much more powerful light using neutral light LED than compared to the cool white to see at further distances. But for some the cool white is not a comfortable visual experience versus the somewhat warmer neutral white LEDs. Fenix makes a bike light at 1800 lumen which is dual distance and are neutral white for $99. But I suspect although I have not used it that at that brightnes it will tend to washout what I may be wanting to avoid. IF you want to buy an LED flashlight for your bike whether it is one that can be used with a bike mount kit or is specifically made for a bike which would have a built in bike mount, make sure you can try it out and return it with a money back warranty. For me the neutral white fades in the distance where as the cool white has a greater throw. For an experiment I have two flashlight bicycle mounts I am going to try both my neutral white and my cool white flashlights and get the best of both worlds. Getting a bicycle mount kit allows you to easily detach the flashlight from the bike as opposed to a stationary bicycle flashlight. You may want to consider writing down a check list of what your flashlight needs are. Do you need a wide or narrow focus or dispersion, or a variable focus torch. How bright (lumen) for what you are using it for do you need.Are you taking a walk or running or bicycling at night or are you using it in a IT server environment or in a mechanics shop or are you doing deliveries and need to see the address number; are you a search and rescue, a cop or fireman; are you going to gun mount it? Battery Junction has a lot of expertise to help you nail down the right choice for you
Pros:
Allows the use of a rechargeable battery and has a variable light output control. It also had a nice dispersion for working on equipment.
Cons:
For what I am using it for there are no cons!

Good Flashlight But Not So Great on Batteries
September 27, 2014
Works great except I have burned through 2 batteries. When I thought it was off and standing on end on my dresser it came on and ran the battery down, twice. Not sure what to do about it but I would not buy another one for that reason alone.
Pros:
Works as advertised, lots of lumens for the size, well made except for the battery contacts.
Cons:
Poor design for battery life, see above comment
