Small stature, big function! Brief Review Of NITECORE TINI2 Key Keychain Flashlights

I have used many kinds of key chain flashlights, and I like this kind of small flashlights very much. Most of the mainstream markets are cylindrical structures powered by AAA batteries. Compact and portable are the main features of this kind of products, and the utilization rate is very high. In terms of performance, the key chain flashlight is almost single-gear, multi-gear products will be slightly less, the normal output is about 100 lumens, which is dozens of times brighter than the mobile phone, and the emergency use is impeccable. Today, we bring a product of NITECORE, which is also an updated product of TINI. It has many black technologies and many bright spots.
TINI2 Key Chain Flashlight

When I first met the TINI2 key chain flashlight, I felt that it was small and delicate, and TINI2 was large and complete. What is big? The volume is small and the function is large. What is complete? Fully functional. TINI2 flashlight is made of A6061-T6 aluminum by CNC precision machining, and the upper and lower sides are combined. The surface of the flashlight adopts the three-level hard oxygen of the military regulation, the color of the gun is gray, the OLED display screen is supported, the real-time status display, the five-level brightness adjustment, the 500-lumen violent output, and the 89-meter long-range shooting is arbitrary. It is a master of USB-C.

The back of the flashlight is relatively simple, with three screws firmly fixed to the flashlight shell, beside which the NITECORE, TINI2 and CE logos are printed.

Optical system, TINI2 flashlight uses two OSRAM P8 led lamp beads with high white light life, and the delicate and efficient TIR lens refracts the phantom of Osram lamp beads, which makes people want to stop.

The design of the TINI2 flashlight is very similar to that of the remote control, with a rectangular shape and a slope transition on the side, making it smooth and comfortable to use. On the top of the front is the OLED display screen, which monitors the working status of the flashlight in real time, displaying lumen value, power, gear, working mode and endurance time. In terms of control keys, the upper function key and the lower function key are switch keys. TINI2 is designed with double keys, which is in line with Knight's many key chains and flashlights. The functions of small flashlights are still very many, and the two keys are perfectly controlled.

It is hard to imagine that such a small and exquisite TINI2 flashlight can burst out with the power of 500 lumens, which is qualitatively different from the common key chain flashlight. This is the output range of a small straight tube, and the eyes of temptation hide infinite killing.

500 lumens, you can hardly imagine that it is emitted by a small key ring flashlight, and it is not the first time that Knight has done so radically. Radical is not the only way to do a good job of product performance stability, which requires a certain strength. From design to TIR optical system adjustment, to battery performance of charging and discharging circuit, many of its key chain flashlights are of great strength. Extremely bright 500 lumens can illuminate a whole wall, as a small portable flashlight, emergency use is enough.

Although the flashlight is small, most of the flashlight manufacturers have already caught up with the last train of Type-C. Of course, Knight is no exception. It is cool to see the positive and negative blind plug interface.

The advantages of Type-C are needless to say, and it is unspeakable for people who have used it to charge it with M port.

Another advantage of Type-C is that charging is not limited to common devices such as chargers and power banks. Mainstream Android phones can support charging small flashlights. As long as they have a CC wire, they can add energy to the TINI2 flashlight at any time. When the flashlight display screen is connected, the current voltage can be displayed in real time. The double keys of the flashlight have LED lights flashing slowly, indicating that they are currently being charged. TINI2 also supports charging to light up the infinite relay mode, which is very interesting as a nightlight.
