A Chameleon For Any Situation

The Nitecore Chameleon Series is designed to bring you mid-sized lights with ample power coupled with colored LED's that fulfill a variety of special tasks. Every member of the Chameleon family is built from hard anodized aluminum and features O-ring seals that allow it to be submersible in water up to 2 meters (IPX-8 Rating) . The Chameleons utilize a tail-switch for activation, and two side-switches for mode selection. The first side-switch cycles through the primary LED's five outputs, which range from a .1 lumen firefly mode, to a 440 lumen turbo. All of this makes for a pretty standard 18650 style light with all the durability and premium hardware we have all come to expect from Nitecore, but they didn't stop there. Each member of the chameleon family also comes with three more LED's, one set of two provide a moderate, but effective red, green, and blue illumination, while the secondary LED provides a brilliant light with a color specific to each model in the Chameleon family! That means every light in this series has an ultra-bright white LED, a secondary colored LED, and a third set of auxiliary LED's that can be accessed instantly with the side-switches! The Chameleon family truly blends in to fit its environment, with features that make it perfect for hunters, campers, law enforcement, and emergency preppers!

Keep Your Eyes Sharp

The CR6 Chameleon features a red light as its secondary LED. This spectrum of color is ideal for preserving night vision. Imagine, you're navigating the campsite while the others are fast asleep. Your eyes have adjusted to see your surroundings and the night seems to come alive as the forest glows in the waning moon's light. Suddenly, you realize you've dropped your compass on your way across camp. Your night vision is good, but not good enough to make out the compass against the dark, leafy ground. Rather than shine the primary white light across the ground, ruining your treasured night vision and potentially waking up your camp-mates, switch on to the red LED of the Nitecore CR6. The soft red spectrum will provide enough illumination to find your gear, and when its switched off, you'll still be able to navigate your way around without the aid of an intrusive white beam.

Good Light / Great Value

I opted for the Chameleon in white over red for use in night spotting animals during woodland walks.

Build quality is quite good. The tailcap threads were lubricated during assembly. Overall the light feels good in the hand and the body mounted switches are well positioned and easily found by feel. The switches themselves operate smoothly requiring only what to me, is ideal pressure to operate and they also provide enough feedback by feel to know that the switch has cycled. Both the red and white main beams progress from low to high and then start over. For the red main beam however you must also cycle through the three colors from the RGBs before getting back to low red. Both the main white and all colored positions have memory so if you turn the light off or switch from white to color when you go back you are still in the same mode you were in when you made the change. That is a VERY welcomed feature.

The preset steps of the different white and red light levels are reasonably spaced. I do wish that there was one more lower mode for the red. The smaller RGB LEDs have artifacts as expected, but in practical use they are not an issue. It may be my imagination but it seems like because of the way they are mounted in the reflector that they put more light forward as a hot spot compared to my SRT7 where the three RGBs tend to be a bit more floody. All three colors provide decent forward light for short range navigation or close up work.

The white and red main LEDs have a little bit of an odd pattern because of the split reflector but here again in practical use you will not really notice it. Both offer generous hot spots with good side spill. To me the split reflector still provides for throw that is more than adequate for general use.

The only down side is that for the colored LEDs you must cycles through all options from low red to high red and then all three colors of the secondary LEDs before being back at low red. That is the only reason for the 4 star rating. Do be aware that judging by the appearance of the positive battery terminal flat top 18650 cells may not work. It appears to be cut out for button topped cells only as a polarity check.

Again....Overall a very nice light that can serve in a variety of tasks at an almost bargain price considering the features that it offers.
