Now Available With "Neutral White" LED! Light produced by a neutral white LED appears less artificial and more similar to sunlight or light produced by candles. Neutral white light is also perfect for film, especially outdoors, as it does not make natural colors and skin tones appear dull like with cool white light.

Nitecore TM16 Tiny Monster Flashlight

Incredibly Powerful Searchlight

The Nitecore TM16 Tiny Monster Flashlight is an upgraded version of the TM15 and is an extremely powerful and high performing handheld searchlight. It is perfect for your outdoor adventures, camping trips and anywhere else you need a sufficient amount of light. Constructed from aerograde aluminum alloy and a sturdy HA III military grade hard-anodized finish, you can count on the TM16 in the toughest conditions. It utilizes an advanced temperature regulation technology which allows it to dynamically adjust output performance according to its body temperature. This ensures that heat is delivered evenly and rapidly to the surface which prevents it from damage and overheating.

Lighting Technology


The TM16 is equipped with not 1 but 4 x CREE XM-L2 LEDs and is capable of producing up to a mind blowing 4000 lumens. That is an incredible amount of power for its compact size and design. It features 5 brightness levels ranging from Turbo to Ultralow and 3 concealed special modes including strobe, SOS and location beacon. A convenient power indicator light displays the remaining battery power so you are always prepared. The TM16 has an amazingly long range of up to 700 meters and a peak beam intensity of 122,500 candelas. The power, diversity and versatility of the TM16 really separates it from other searchlights.

Power Source

4 x 18650 Batteries

Powering your Nitecore TM16 is simple since it takes 4 x 18650 batteries. The inner structure of the light is compact and ensures that each battery is arranged side by side, leaving no space in between. The TM16 contains a high efficiency circuit board that provides a max runtime of up to 520 hours. It is waterproof in accordance with IPX-8 standards and is impact resistant up to 1.5 meters. Another great feature is a rear thumbscrew lock that can be connected to a tripod. This turns the TM16 into a camp light or camera light and can also be utilized in outdoor sports, night photography and industrial operations.

Love the 4000 lumens. We have coyotes in our suburban neighborhood and they like to eat pets. Every time we let our 3 dogs out in the dark we use the Tiny Monster to scan the surrounding for coyotes. See lots of deer, rabbits, and raccoons. Lights up back yards 3 houses away.

Exceptional and powerful flashlight
April 2, 2016
Very powerful and strong flashlight, I could not believe how powerful and bright this flashlight is.
  • Strong, solid, powerful, and it does last. I have many flashlight that are powerful but what good is the brightness if it will not last. This flashlight is a flashlight that you can trust when you need it.
  • The only thing I don't like is the fact that the head is bigger so it is not easy to put in the pocket, but I wanted it to be bigger that the body so it will help in cooling the flashlight.

This is definitely a keeper as far as flashlights are concerned, I lit up the side of three story house half a mile away. My neighbor was impressed enough he wanted a "LIGHT TORCH". That's what I call a product selling itself, he has Battery Junction's website now. It is a great product and really constructed well, how long will it hold up to daily use? I don't know I just got it but I'll probably have to put it in my will so ownership can't be in doubt.

Can you use 3600- mA batteries (18650)?
1 Answer
Thank you for your inquiry. Some of the 18650 batteries can run a little large or a little long. If the battery fits into the light then it should work just fine. The 3600 mAh is the capacity of the battery and will give you a longer run time.
