The new version of the TIP, the Nitecore TIP 2017 has a maximum output of 360 lumens from the Cree XP-G2 and is powered by a built-in, rechargeable, Li-ion battery.
Without compromising on the original benefits of the TIP, the 2017 version offers two operating modes and a multi-purpose clip which acts as the torch's lockout mode. The removeable, sliding clip prevents accidental activation as it can be attached to cover both operating switches and acts as physical protection from water and dust. The clip also provides practical attachment to clothing and accessories for hands-free use.
The TIP 2017 has two modes which are accessed by holding both switches at the same time. One flash of the light indicates the TIP is in Daily mode and two flashes means it is in Constant-on mode. The Daily mode output stays on for 30 seconds and then turns itself off automatically, providing enough time to use the light and ensuring the power does not drain if the light has been left on accidentally. The Constant-on mode provides continuous illumination, until the power button is pressed to turn the torch off.
