Nitecore P20UV

Portable, Powerful & UltraViolet

Nitecore has added an ultraviolet version of the P20 to the Precise Series family. You still get the same scratch-resistant anodized aluminum body, dual-switch tail cap, intuitive interface, just with the addition of four secondary ultraviolet LEDs. For those looking for a reliable emergency light around the house, to serious hikers and campers in need of a tough and lightweight device, the P20UV is the light to have. Now, if your an officer or military personnel who needs an ultraviolet light they know they can depend on, then the P20 does it all.

Lighting Technology


The P20UV is fitted with the latest XM-L2 LED from CREE outputting a blazing 800 lumens while in High mode. There are also four secondary ultraviolet LEDs which provide 320mW at 365nm for those authentication, forensics, and identification applications. The P20UV features three selectable modes bringing versatility and flexibility. Tactical mode was designed for self defense, featuring only strobe, high and UV mode. Law enforcement mode was designed for patrol duty applications, featuring strobe, high, mid, and UV mode. Finally, there is General mode, which is designed for daily use, featuring strobe, high, mid, low, and UV mode. Controlling the intuitive interface can easily be done with one hand via the dual-switch tail cap. You get a dedicated strobe button, which is constructed from metal and can be accessed from any state.


Battery Power Indicator

Powering the P20UV are either two CR123A batteries or a single 18650 cell. The included battery magazine makes sure the CR123A batteries do not rattle around in the light and help maintain electrical continuity. The P20UV comes equipped with an integrated LED in the tail cap switch to indicate remaining power, so you'll never be left in the dark. Three flashes mean the battery levels are above 50%, two flashes mean the levels are below 50%, and one flash means the battery power is close to depletion. The IPX-8 rating ensures the P20UV will operate even if it gets dropped in a puddle or if it starts raining. If you do happen to drop it , no worries, the aero-grade aluminum alloy body is impact resistant up to 1.5 meters.

Excellent tactical flashlight
September 8, 2014
I've been a Surefire fan for a long while with an E2D Ultra as my EDC (Every Day Carry) torch. A friend of mine turned me on to Battery Junction and I haven't been able to stop buying Nitecore flashlights and Li-ion batteries from them ever since. My first dabble into Nitecore wsa this P20UV LED flashlight. The 800 lumen rating was 300 more than my EDC and the added benefit of UV seemed kinda cool.

When the flashlight arrived, complete with a Nitecore NL189 3400mAh Li-ion battery, I immediately charged the battery and fired up the light. The temperature (color) of the light is a perfect white and the peripheral illumination is much better than the Surefire for short range tactical use. The UV function is fun to scan $100 bills with, but I was really surprised at how useful the strobe function was. In any of the four modes or with the light off, pressing the dedicated strobe button sends a blinding sequence of flashes toward a would-be attacker. This is truly an all around, all purpose flashlight that now has a permanent home on my bedside table.

Because of this purchase, I picked up an additional two more Nitecore P10 torches for my vehicles.
  • * Bright, pure white light with a good balance of beam and flood coverage.
  • * Flexible options for batteries: 2xCR123 or my recommendation, a 18650 Li-ion rechargeable.
  • * Convenient dedicated strobe button for disorienting bad guys.
  • * Very comfortable to hold and operate.
  • * For very long distances (200+ yards), the beneficial close-quarters dispersion makes this less useful as a pencil beam light.

Good if you don't have 800 lumens already
November 10, 2017
I have an older model that is brighter than this. I got this for the IR, and it's a little disappointing. The IR seems pretty dim/weak. It is a nice novelty and better than nothing, so if you don't already have a small flashlight that can output 800 lumens, then you really can't go wrong with this (unless you're looking for 900~1000+ lumens).
  • Novelty of IR lights.
  • Fast access to strobe.
  • IR seems very dim.
  • Thought I could see some security features on my ID with it but cant. It makes the strip in a US bill light up pretty well though.

NiteCore P20UV Flashlight
December 13, 2016
Excellent build quality, very good currency reveal, good interface (easy to switch through operation modes), overall very good purchase and VERY quick fulfillment of order.
I recommend this light as a go-to light on its own merit,.. the UV is a real bonus.
  • UV light is a nice compliment to this light that on its own, performs well as a must-have travel light.
  • None to date.

Good as advertised
December 9, 2014
Performs as indicated. I work in law enforcement, I bought this item to replace a Strion light that I used. So far, I'm extremely happy with the results. It's even smaller than my old flashlight with was just 160 lumens.
1 Question & 1 Answer
from PHX asked:
September 5, 2014
Where is this light manufactured? When turned on, what mode is it in? How do you change modes?
1 Answer
Nitecore is manufactured in China. The P20 starts off in Low mode, but features memory mode, where it will remember the last output you left it in. There is a dual switch tail cap, where the larger switch is on/off and the secondary mode switch cycles through the modes.
