Nitecore Tip-2017 CRI

Size Doesn't Always Matter

Introducing the new and improved Nitecore TIP 2017 CRI! This metallic keychain light comes with a new and improved Multi-Purpose clip! It physically protects the USB port from dust and water, as well as, it covers the buttons to prevent accidental activation. Running on a singular Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) rechargeable battery this little keychain light can produce an impressive 240 Lumens! With this type of output, you will be able to see more of the environment around you - while seeing it accurately with the high performance CRI LED bulb. Furthermore, the TIP 2017 CRI now offers a Daily mode and a constant-on mode. The Daily mode will help save you power by shutting off after 30 seconds of inactivity. This feature is perfect for short bursts of light when you need to see what key is required or where your car ignition is while it is dark out. The constant-on mode allows a user to have continuous illumination great for nighttime walks when a continuous light is most needed!

True Color Rendering

The TIP 2017 CRI utilizes a Nichia 2198 LED that produces a more accurate picture of what colors are actually supposed to look like - there will be less white wash. This light will never play tricks on your eyes. Light color rendering, using a warm LED light - instead of cool LED light, will make the colors you see more vivid and accurate when processed with the naked eye.

Multiple Colors Available

The NiteCore TIP 2017 CRI comes in an extensive amount of colors! The Robust Aluminum Alloy body comes in: gold or green (silver, gray, brown, blue, and red no longer available). That is seven different colors that you can use to customize your keychain. Customization has never been so easy. Whether you're trying to mix and match the items on your keyring or you just want to have your favorite color, the TIP 2017 has the options you are looking for!

Nitecore TIP keychain light
March 16, 2021
So this one wasn't so good for me. This was purchased for the wife and she is a bit annoyed as she has issues getting it to work reliably. She gave up after a month or so and it basically sits in a drawer, being charged about every six months. Sad as I had hoped this would be a winner as it is very bright.

Light is nice, but the clip broke quickly.
January 4, 2018
I purchased this light to use on a neck lanyard. I find it works great for this purpose; it is quickly accessible and easy to turn on. I've had no trouble with accidental activation, although I leave it in the 30 second shutoff mode anyway. The multi purpose clip, however, broke in half within a week; I hadn't even used it as a pocket clip. I had just left it on the flashlight while I had the light on the lanyard. I didn't feel any impact, but at one point the pieces fell out of my shirt. I'd say the light is a 5, the clip not so much due to the quick failure. I can't imagine it lasting if I tried to use it as a pocket clip due to the way it broke. I do like the light itself though!

Great light. Set the mode you want, Slide on the clip, you can turn it on by pushing the clip but it doesn't come on in your pocket, if you want another mode slide the clip up and change modes.

All scratched up!
July 20, 2017
The bulb is great. The case, not so much. I've bought it on 8/16, had it on my keychain till about a month ago and now it looks like it had been dragged over stones for a month. It was so scratched that you could hardly tell it was green. So screwing the warranty, I took it apart, sanded the frame back to what I think is aluminum and gave it a coat of Duracoat semigloss black and 2 coats of Duracoat clear coat. We'll see how long that lasts.
  • Good light output.
  • The buttons kinda suck and the finish on the frame, well I have no idea how they'd solve the issue of it becoming very scratched up and looking like crap.

Good bulb failed design
June 29, 2017
The color of light is very good, as is size and intensity. Unfortunately the design is utterly unfit for purpose--the raised buttons will.get activated in your pocket/ on a keychain, resulting in a dead battery 3 times out of 5. There is a lock sequence... which draws continuous power to maintain, resulting in a dead battery 5 out of 5 times even if you never use the light.
I have rigged a rigid plastic shield but it is far from ideal, and solves a problem which should have been obvious to the manufacturer.
