2 x Osram P8 LEDs
700 lm output
2100 cd intensity
integrated 500 mAh Li-Ion battery

The Nitecore TIP SE (TIPSE) released in 2020. It uses 2 x Osram P8 LEDs, TIR reflector and integrated 500 mAh Li-Ion battery. The powerful emitter in this flashlight provides up to 700 lm output, 2100 cd intensity, and a beam distance of 92 m.

The TIP SE lashlight offers a versatile lighting solution. TIR technology minimizes hotspots, dark spots, and irregularities in the beam of TIP SE. This light has 4 modes of lighting. Instead of having to cycle through multiple modes to find the desired setting, mode memory of TIP SE ensures that the flashlight starts in the mode you prefer or need. This Nitecore USB rechargeable flashlight comes with versatile charging options.

Nitecore TIP SE (TIPSE) specifications

Rated 4/5 based on 1283 user votes.

The TIP SE flashlight enhance personal safety and security. It allows you to illuminate dark areas, identify potential hazards, or deter threats by shining light on them.


Weight26 g
Length60 mm
Materialaluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish

The TIP SE 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 TIP SE has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery.

The HAIII coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, protecting the underlying aluminum from exposure to moisture, humidity, and other corrosive elements. It helps maintain the appearance and functionality of the flashlight, even in harsh environments. The TIP SE 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 TIP SE 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 TIP SE 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.


Flux700 lm
Intensity2100 cd
Throw92 m
CD/LM factor3

With 700 lm, the TIP SE 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 2100 cd, the TIP SE 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. 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.


Modes4 modes
Mode memoryyes
Ramping modeno

Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The TIP SE 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.


Batteryintegrated 500 mAh Li-Ion battery
Battery indicatoryes
Charger portUSB Type-C
Thermal regulationyes
Impact resistance1 m

The TIP SE flashlight utilizes integrated 500 mAh Li-Ion battery as its power source. The TIP SE 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. With an impressive impact resistance rating of 1 m, the TIP SE flashlight is built to endure accidental drops or impacts, ensuring its resilience and dependable performance in demanding situations.


Package contentsclip

The clip provides flexibility in how you carry your flashlight.

The performance of the Nitecore TIP SE 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.
