tiny Monster – nitecore TM06

veröffentlicht am 22. December 2014 in Allgemein, Coupons und Codes von

Hi my friends!


I got a big brown box (covered with white foam, stuffed in a gray plastic bag) from banggood.

worlds “smallest” 3800 Lumen flashlight??


but when i opened it i was like “WOW – so tiny?!”


the (chinese only) manual, Orings, a lanyard and a nice holster are also in the box


the TM06 IS a tiny monster!



besides a 250ml can of a famous austrian drink


fits my hand nicely


There is a recess to make the tailswitsc easyer to reach



all 4 sides have prinitngs on it


the anodization is perfect – maybe a bit on the slippery side…

but the knurling is well made and not too agressive



unscrewing the tailcap shows us well lubedtriangle threads with two Orings


inside the tailcap


looking toward the driver


all 4 battery slots have a sticker to indicate the correct direction


the driver


can it be programmed without disassembling??


the side switch (more in the text section)

then i looked at the front end – BAM! no AR coating


and scratches!!


BUT after i removed the protective foil the page turned into violet!


there IS glas – believe me!


nice centered Cree XM-L2


the steel bezel has a little gap – looks kinda nice

first impressions:


WOW – just WOW!

nice build quality! – feels good, perfect size

very bright! and easy to operate.


the UI:

when you tighten the tailcap (mechanical lockout) the blue LED under the sideswitch blinks to inidicate the voltage of the cells

-> blink-blink-blink-blink-pause-blink-blink = 4,2V

then the light is in standby and the blue led blinks slowly (to find the light in the dark?)

a click on the tailswitch brings it to life – it starts alway with the last used brightness


half press the sideswitch while turning it on starts in lowest mode

full press  the sideswitch while turning it on starts in TURBO mode


when its on a full press increases the brightnes mode, half press decreases step by step


full press for more than one second activates disco modes (aka fast strobe)

press and hold switches to SOS and another press and hold brings the beacon up (short, very bright slow flashes)

single click goes back to last used brightness level

I like:

  • this is a really great little flashlight!

  • the output is enormous for its size  –  also is the heat it produces…

  • tailstand is possible

  • mechanical lockout is possible

  • the UI is great

  • the Voltage is shown when fastening the tailcap

  • low voltage warning

  • the two step sideswitch


I don´t like:

  • the battery tube / Spring length is somehow “crazy” – cells smaller than 66mm won´t make contact and cells longer than 69mm block the rear PCB from contacting the battery tube. (pic below)

  • the batteries rattle

  • only 18650 possible

  • uneven beam – if you rotate the light it is disturbing me a bit (look at the video)

  • two hands needed to operate

i had to use magnets to stack my 65mm pulls so they work in this light


the “lotus effect”

If you like the light go to the shop LINK

don´t forget to ask me for “the special price”
