Nitecore R40

Slice Through The Sky

Like the Commissioner firing up the Batsignal, the Nitecore R40 searchlight hurls a beam into the farthest reaches of the night. Its whopping 520 meter (569 yard) throw is unparalleled in its class. And its induction-charging cradles make it perfect for real-life crimefighters who need to grab and go. Law enforcement, search teams, and regular folks with lots of property to cover will all discover features to love in the R40.

Comes With Incredible Accessories

Picture this: Your trusty R40 sits next to your door, battery topped off by its low-profile charging dock. You use it to find your way to your car, where it slips into a car charging cradle. When it's action time, you're ready to adapt to the situation with five different brightness settings, a blinding strobe, and an SOS beacon. The bottomless battery keeps your Turbo mode running for an hour and a half, and lower modes for even longer. And if your adventure takes you away from your charging cradles, you can just borrow your buddy's cell phone charger, and fall back on the R40's micro-USB port to prepare for the next round. All these accessories and more are included with your R40, making it indispensable right out of the box.

Good Guy in Black Armor

Sure, it can throw a beam from here to forever, but what's the point if you can't take your R40 out into the rain? The rugged construction we expect from Nitecore is in full effect: the R40 is drop-proof (1.5 meters), waterproof (IPX-8, the industry's maximum rating), and anodized with a thick layer of armor. Focus on the thrills, forget about the spills.

My most used light
July 21, 2019
Well, other than my EDC. This is the light that I keep in the garage with the charging cradle. I use it for walks at night or anything I do out or around the house at night. The charging cradle is convenient cause I can just set the light in it when I'm done and know it'll be ready the next time I pick it up. All the brightness modes you could need with great throw for a light of it's size. Direct access to moonlight and turbo are a plus. I know it's pricey, but if you calculate how often I actually use this light into the equation, it's justified.

Nice Feel, Good Ergonomics

I have a number of Nitecore LED flashlighs and have been upgrading (purchasing newer) ones with longer throw distances. This does not disappoint. I have become a fan of side switches instead of the tail switch because I find carrying a LED light in a belt holster when seated (in a car) with a coat on sometimes triggers the LED which I don't see at the time.

The R40 does not suffer from this.

The R40 side switches uses a mode pattern familiar to owners of the EA8 and EA41.
ProsGood switching, upright charging, multiple methods of charging including the pervasive USB, other model Nitecore accessories (diffuser) may also fit.
ConsA little pricey even on-sale; proprietary battery [NL2650DW]
