review: nitecore MT10A

veröffentlicht am 24. September 2015 in Allgemein, Reviews von

Hey my friends!

Today i have the new nitecore MT10A i want to show you:

the “written part”…

unboxing starts with a box:

within the box – a tray

tearing everything apart reveals all accessories

two O-rings, a pocket-clip, a spare rubber boot, a holster, a nice lanyard and the user manual

the holster is well made

and uses velcro for the flap and to mount on a belt (or somewhere else)

the lanyard is thick and round – not flat, that feels valuable

lets look at the light:

if that is too fast here are some detail shots and closeups…

clear, coated lens

heavy orange peel reflector

but the reflector sits deep

the red (3mm?) LED in its recess

both LEDs in action

the pocet clip in both possible mounting positions

lets open it up!

disassembled tailswitch

the driver

reverse polarity protection

unfortunately i could not open the head (and did not want to destroy the light….

a size comparison:

Manker boney – nitecore EC11 – eneloop AA – nitecore MT10A – trunite Archer 1A – BLF A6 SE – Fenix PD25 TAC – a 18650 cell

the participants for Ampere / Lumen measures:

results (i cannot measure <10 Lm, all other corrected to “Fenixlumens”)

at turbo with IMR the head gets hot quickly – the manual says there is a 3 minutes stepdown timer…

some beamshots

using nitecore IMR14500

using eneloop AA

beamshape with eneloop

playing in front of a white canvas reveals the problem all lights have where 2 LEDs share a reflector

a look into the garden


i am not sure….

the two sidebuttons are idiot proof, the UI is easy to understand (besides that red is in the order of regular modes)

the tailswitch is great to avoid accidentially activation and can be used for momentary light

build quality is good and i can imagine that light can take a hit

BUT what happened to the anodization ??

chipped after about 10 times i dis/mounted the loose pocketclip

and the tailcap is slightly different in color (which is nitpicking.. nobody will see that in real life)

and the beamshape with the “artifacts” due to the place of the red LED….

hunting white walls is not what this flashlight is meant for.

outside its a good light with enough power when using IMR cells, and with NiMh and primaries there should be supply everywhere.

my rating:

good flashlight with small issues!

our valued member freeme is running a deal with a great price right now… hush hush!
