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.

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. 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. Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. 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. 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. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight.


Flux500 lm
Intensity2000 cd
Throw89 m
CD/LM factor4

500 lm can provide a decent amount of brightness and be suitable for many everyday tasks. 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. The candela per lumen (cd/lm) ratio can be used to determine if a flashlight has a spot or flood type beam.

The Tini 2 flashlight utilizes integrated 280 mAh Li-Ion battery as its power source. Having a battery indicator allows users to monitor the battery status and make informed decisions regarding recharging or replacing the battery. The USB charger port on a flashlight can be particularly useful in emergency situations where access to power outlets may be limited. When the flashlight detects that the voltage of the battery has dropped to a certain threshold, it automatically reduces or cuts off the power output.

The Tini 2 has thermal protection feature. The thermal protection mechanisms are designed to monitor and regulate the temperature of the flashlight during operation. The "5" in the IP54 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. With an impressive impact resistance rating of 1 m, this flashlight is built to endure accidental drops or impacts.
