The NiteCore Tip 2 is the successor to the NiteCore Tip. The Tip2 inherited all the good qualities of its predecessor: compact size, two switches, four light modes, built-in 500mAh-battery and micro-USB rechargeable. Never worry about batteries but simply charge it with a USB-cable. The design, however, is completely different. The Tip 2 is namely enhanced with two LED lights, the buttons are in a different position and the USB-port is located on the back. All improvements to make it even easier and more comfortable to use.
The Tip 2 is a keychain flashlight with a light output of 720 lumens! Quite a lot for a light this size! Especially when you realize that this light is rechargeable.
The NiteCore Tip 2 is enhanced with a CREE XP-G3 S3 LED light with a CRI (Colour Rendering Index) of = 90. This LED light has a maximum light output of 720 ANSI lumens and a minimal light output of only 1 ANSI lumen. With the two switches on the narrow top of the body you can turn the TIP 2 on and switch between the different modes. The switches have been enhanced with a LED light. This light tells you more about the battery status. The integrated battery is a 500mAh Li-Ion-cell. You can charge the light via the micro USB-port located at the back.

Bought this little edc flashlight after seeing a Youtube review for it. I really like the size and form factor of it - makes it easy to clip in my pocket with less bulk than a round flashlight. Quality of construction is very good and I like the magnets that you can use to attach it to metal surfaces. I wish it had a strobe mode so that it could be a tiny self-defence device, but I can live without it. I also am not a fan of having to hold down the power button for a second or so before the light turns on. I'd rather have some kind of lock to prevent accidental switch-on. Also, I wish there was a tactile difference between the 2 buttons so that I don't have to remember which is which by position - I have a lot of flashlights to remember. These small things aside though, this is still one of my favourite small lights and it's pretty much always with me or in the car.
