Nitecore R25

Tactical Edge with Rechargeable Convenience

If you're a military or law enforcement professional, you never know how long the next assignment will be. You need to know that your battery won't die on you. A flashlight that doesn't power up when you need it is worse than just dead weight - your life may depend on it. Enter the Nitecore R25, with all the features you need in a tactical light, plus the ease of a rechargeable dock. The R25's included charging station can easily mount on a desk, wall, or dashboard, and can be powered with wall adapters and car cigarette outlets. Use multiple docks to ensure that your R25's battery is always topped off and ready to mobilize.

Field-Tested Features

The R25 is designed to give you every tactical advantage. A dedicated switch provides immediate access to the R25's disorienting strobe mode, giving you superiority in a confrontation. The crenelated strike bezel is useful for close quarters combat or for breaking glass. Three different brightness levels are available, and you can even program the flashlight to include or omit brightness levels based upon your needs. An integrated tailcap LED indicates your current battery level. And the R25's impressive throw distance of 321 meters is competitive with much larger searchlights.

Ready to Rumble

"Durable" is an understatement. The Nitecore R25 is rated IPX-8, meaning it's waterproof and submersible up to 2 meters. This rechargeable flashlight also has an impact resistance of 1.5 meters to keep your light running, even if you drop it from eye level. The body is crafted from aerospace grade aluminum alloy, and then hard-anodized to type III military standard. Even in the most demanding of environments, the R25 is ready to deploy.

Note that the R25 includes a proprietary battery, the Nitecore NL188DW. This included battery is the only one that will recharge in the included dock. You can still use other 18650s or CR123As in the R25, but the NL188DW is the only one that will recharge in the dock.

Nitecore R25

I am in EMS and found this flashlight to meet all my needs. The charging cradle is a great time and money saver. The ease of changing between lumens level is great even when wearing gloves. I own many different name brands of lights and this out does them all. I couldn't be more pleased.

I like the direct access to strobe. It doesn't have a super low mode, but that's just perfect for a car light. Pick up a compatible traffic come and you've got a great nighttime safety light, whether protecting you from traffic or perps.

Awesome charging station (Included)
April 8, 2018
The Nitecore R25 come with a charging cradle that can be mounted on to a wall, makes for emergency flashlight for home. Easy release from the station and quick strobe mode dedicated button. Highly recommended for emergency use and always be ready with a full charged battery, if left on the charger. The blue led on the charger helps with finding the flashlight in the dark.
