Nitecore Tini 2 500lm In-depth review, Pros and Cons

2 x Osram P8 LEDs
500 lm output
2000 cd intensity
integrated 280 mAh Li-Ion battery

The Nitecore Tini 2 (TINI2) released in 2020. It uses 2 x Osram P8 LEDs, TIR reflector and integrated 280 mAh Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 500 lm output, 2000 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 89 m.

The Tini 2 is an impressive flashlight that offers both power and reliability. Its robust build and outstanding illumination make it a versatile lighting instrument. TIR technology minimizes hotspots, dark spots, and irregularities in the beam of Tini 2. This light has 5 modes of lighting. Lack of mode memory means you need to manually adjust the flashlight's settings each time you turn it on to get the desired mode. This USB rechargeable flashlight eliminates the need for disposable batteries, offering a more eco-friendly and cost-effective solution.

Nitecore Tini 2 (TINI2) specifications

NameTini 2
Rated 3/5 based on 1186 user votes.

The Tini 2 flashlight offers precise and focused illumination. Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.


Weight18.8 g
Length46.6 mm
Head diameter12.5 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

The Tini 2 is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. The length of a flashlight can also impact its balance and weight distribution. A well-balanced flashlight, where the weight is evenly distributed, can be more comfortable to hold for longer periods and reduce hand fatigue. The aluminium body of Tini 2 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery.

Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. The Tini 2 flashlight presents an extensive selection of vibrant colors: black, gray.


Emitter2 x Osram P8 LEDs
Color temperature6500 K
Switchdual electronic side

Osram LEDs are known for their high performance, energy efficiency, and reliability. They provide a range of options in terms of brightness, color temperature, color rendering, and beam characteristics to meet different lighting requirements. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. The TIR lens of Tini 2 can minimize light loss and achieve high light output by capturing and redirecting a significant portion of the emitted light. This can result in improved overall beam quality, better beam control, and reduced stray light. The Tini 2 has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.

CD/LM factor4

500 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks, it may not be sufficient for certain scenarios or individuals with specific requirements. 2000 cd can provide a reasonable level of luminous intensity for many everyday lighting tasks. The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.

SpecialsOLED display

The Tini 2 flashlight utilizes integrated 280 mAh Li-Ion battery as its power source. The Tini 2 has a battery indicator. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. It helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. The USB charger port on a flashlight can be particularly useful in emergency situations where access to power outlets may be limited.

LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery from being over-discharged, which can lead to reduced battery life or even permanent damage. The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "5" in the IP54 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. The IP54 rated flashlight is protected against dust ingress to a limited extent. This flashlight is designed to withstand impacts of up to 1 m without sustaining significant damage, ensuring its durability and reliability even in challenging conditions.


Package contentskey clasp

The performance of the Nitecore Tini 2 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.
