Nitecore TM28 Tiny Monster

You Have Found Your Grail

Let's be real: Nitecore's TM28 is the grail of rechargeable LED searchlights. It is possibly too powerful. It can shine a 6,000 lumen beam over 2,000 feet. To put that in context, it is the brightest light in Nitecore's brightest line. It has few peers. We only stock a handful of lights which are brighter, and they're bulky, handle-carried models, powered by dense sealed lead-acid batteries - they're more like a car battery with a flashlight fused on. And even then, the handheld TM28 is brighter than several of those models. So when we say it's the brightest, we want to be clear that this is actually the pinnacle of LED flashlight technology.

Innovative 4x4 Construction

Built for search-and-rescue (SAR) operations, the TM28 achieves its ludicrous outputs with a 4 LED, 4 battery configuration. Two pairs of CREE XHP35 HI LEDs are placed in deep reflector wells, optimized to throw their beam more than 700 yards. The flashlight is capable of operating on 4 ordinary 18650 Li-ion cells, but for optimal output, it is recommended that you use 4 IMR 18650 batteries, available as optional accessories. The light's power source never needs to be removed thanks to its integrated recharging capability, meaning that you never have to disassemble your light, preventing dust and dirt from entry. Five brightness levels let you adjust to different uses, with a max running time of 1,000 hours on the lowest 2 lumen setting. Strobe, SOS, and beacon modes give you the power to defend or identify yourself in an emergency.

Too Big to Fail

The TM28's coolest feature is its onboard OLED readout, which gives you real-time updates about the status of your light. Cycle through stats with a simple click, including your brightness level, battery meter, battery voltage, remaining runtime, and operating temperature. No more memorizing settings or wondering how much juice you have left - it's all there in plain, easy-to-read numbers. Of course, the TM28 continues Nitecore's tradition of near-indestructible hulls. Machined from industry-standard anodized aluminum, the TM28 can withstand a fall from waist height with no interruption of service. That same precision machining gives it the maximum waterproof rating of IPX8, meaning it can operate under 2 meters of water without issue. The TM28 may be high-end professional equipment, but it's built with the understanding that conditions are never ideal out in the field. Grail acquired!
