Nitecore NE02 2700lm In-depth review, Pros and Cons
The Nitecore NE02 (NE02) released in 2020. It uses 4 x Cree XP-G3 S3 LEDs, TIR reflector and 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 2700 lm output, 5400 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 147 m.
The NE02 flashlight provides instant illumination at the touch of a switch. This immediate response is particularly useful in emergency situations or when you need instant visibility. It uses a TIR lens to form the beam pattern. This light has 5 modes of lighting. The memory function is a nice feature, the light will remember the last used mode. The USB charger port allows you to charge your flashlight using alternative power sources, making them even more suitable for outdoor adventures or emergency situations where access to electricity may be limited.

Nitecore NE02 (NE02) specifications
Flashlights are compact and lightweight, making them highly portable. They can easily fit into pockets, backpacks, or glove compartments, allowing you to carry them wherever you go.
|Body diameter||28.5 mm|
|Head diameter||34 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
This 172.5 g flashlight would be considered slightly heavier than average for a handheld flashlight, but it is still within a reasonable weight range. This weight range is often found in smaller and more compact flashlights designed for everyday use or portability. The ideal length of a flashlight depends on personal preference, intended use, and the specific features and functionality you're looking for.
Aluminium body of NE02 is known for its durability and strength. It offers excellent resistance to impacts, scratches, and corrosion, making it suitable for rugged outdoor use or in demanding environments. The HAIII coating can also enhance the visual appearance of the flashlight. It offers a uniform and attractive finish, often available in different colors, giving the flashlight a sleek and professional look. The NE02 flashlight is available in black.
|Emitter||4 x Cree XP-G3 S3 LEDs|
|Color temperature||6500 K|
The emitter of NE02 manufactured by Cree, a US-based LED manufacturing company. Cree is a well-regarded LED manufacturer known for its high-quality products and innovation in the lighting industry. Color temperature is a characteristic of light. It is measured in units called Kelvin (K) and is used to quantify the color appearance of light sources, particularly white light. A TIR lens works on the principle of total internal reflection. The TIR lens collimates the LED light into efficient, well-controlled light beams that maximize the usable lumens in the target area.
The NE02 has mechanical switch. Mechanical switches are known for their durability and reliability. They are typically built with robust construction, making them resistant to wear and tear, and capable of enduring various environmental conditions. The rear switch of NE02 is designed to be rugged and durable, capable of withstanding harsh conditions and repeated use.
With 2700 lm, the NE02 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. With 5400 cd, the NE02 flashlight provides a noticeably brighter and more intense beam of light. It can illuminate objects or areas with greater clarity and visibility, even at longer distances.
The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. The cd/lm factor (candela-to-lumen ratio) provides information about how concentrated or focused the light output of a light source is. A higher cd/lm ratio indicates that the light is more concentrated in a specific direction, while a lower ratio indicates a more diffused or spread-out light output.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The NE02 has mode memory. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again.
|Battery||1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery|
|Impact resistance||1 m|
The Nitecore NE02 flashlight is powered by 1 x 21700 Li-Ion battery. The battery indicator lets you know when the battery is low, charging, or fully charged. This flashlight can charge the battery with an integrated charger, and it works with a USB power source. This flashlight has a built-in low voltage protection (LVP) to prevent damage to the cell from over-discharge, so protected cells are not necessary.
The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "8" in the IPx8 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress. It is recommended to handle flashlights with care and avoid subjecting them to unnecessary rough treatment to ensure their longevity and reliable operation.
|Package contents||21700 battery|
It comes with a battery. The battery must be fully charged before you first use your NE02. The package includes a holster to safely store your flashlight. When the flashlight is clipped to a suitable location, it can be angled or positioned to provide hands-free illumination. The lanyard of NE02 helps protect the flashlight from accidental damage by preventing it from falling or hitting the ground.
The performance of the Nitecore NE02 flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
