NITECORE TIKI

If not familiar with NITECORE’s products are better of saving the packaging and Manual. Because a TIKI has three lights and is controlled by only one switch, it takes a while to get familiar with the operation. The way to operate TIKI is printed on the back of the package. Just take it out and have a look.

Exquisite and compact in appearance

NITECORE TIKI

The TIKI with a key chain weighs less than a battery — just 14.5 grams — and is compact enough to be light enough to carry around on a key.

NITECORE TIKI

With the TIKI so small and slim, and the case still looking plastic, one might think it’s not strong enough to swing around on a key and break the end. There’s no need to worry, either the TIKI’s all-in-one hole or the stainless steel key chain is very strong. There’s no problem with hanging a kettlebell that weighs nearly 5kg. In fact, the TIKI can withstand a tension of 30kg.

NITECORE TIKI

This allows you to hang the TIKI at any location on your body. You can take it with you, which is very convenient and not afraid of falling and losing.

NITECORE TIKI

The TIKI’s shell is actually made of PC material, a high-strength organic material that combines both strength and transparency, giving the TIKI’s sidelights room to shine.

NITECORE TIKI

Inside the lamp, which has a raised TIKI and other certification marks on one side, is a polymer lithium-ion rechargeable battery that has a high voltage and enough charge to provide higher brightness and longer battery life than alkaline batteries.

NITECORE TIKI

The TIKI lamp holder is covered in stainless steel for a large area, which ensures the strength of the main lamp and also helps to dissipate heat inside the lamp holder, preventing the lamp beads from fading due to high brightness and temperature.

NITECORE TIKI

The NITECORE logo is printed on the side of the lamp body, and the other plane is the position of the switch. The touch of the switch rubber cap is comfortable, with a key range of about 3mm, which can trigger the feedback of sound and touch. However, due to the limitation of the overall volume, the TIKI switch is also relatively small, which needs to be operated with fingertips.

NITECORE TIKI

The main light is bright enough, light and easy to use

The TIKI’s main lamp USES an Osram P8 white light bead, which can reach a maximum luminous flux of 300 lumens, making it the best in the key lamp.

NITECORE TIKI

Lamp bead exterior USES the way of total reflection lens to guide light, this also is a small flashlight and key lamp commonly used way, the advantage is to be able to compare focus light, form brightness more even spot.

NITECORE TIKI

By the way, the general small hand light has TIR lens, the bead TIR lens, the Aluminum alloy reflector and so on way to guide the light (below from left to right), each has the advantage, according to the flashlight USES the different choice, can form the different light effect.

NITECORE TIKI

Thanks to the high-efficiency constant-current design, the TIKI has no strobe at any of its constant light Settings, ensuring that your eyes don’t get tired of using it often. Under the action of a TIR lens, a perfectly round spot can also be formed, and the brightness in the spot is even.

NITECORE TIKI

The key lamp is used casually in daily life. If the stair lamp is broken at night, you can take out the TIKI and double-click the switch to open the main lamp. The middle-range brightness is enough to illuminate the whole corridor to ensure the safety of the upper and lower stairs.

NITECORE TIKI

Because light and convenient, hanging on the key can be used at will, check the electricity meter, rummaging for things, especially convenient to use.

NITECORE TIKI

The brightness of the main outdoor lamp is also very high, and the vision is very bright for close use. The divergence angle of the light from the outlet tube is about 5°, and a larger comfortable lighting area can be formed at a distance, which is more suitable for hanging on the top of the tent and can fully illuminate the tent.

NITECORE TIKI

TIKI’s main light has a total of 4 normal lighting modes. Double-click the switch to turn on the main light, and click the switch to shift gears. In the outdoor use of highlighted, extremely bright two gears are more suitable, the visual distance and field of view are better, extremely bright 300lm to see clearly 50 meters away is not a problem.

TIKI supports lighting while charging, so as long as the TIKI is raised with a bracket, a simple desk lamp can be formed. Camping out with a charging kit and TIKI becomes an all-night lighting tool, which is very practical.

NITECORE TIKI

High CRI AUX light + UV light, a wide range of applications

On the switch side of the TIKI, there are also two secondary lights inside the lamp body. One is a lamp bead with CRI>90 4500K (yellow in the picture below), and the other is a 365nm UV lamp bead (white in the picture below), with power up to 0.5w.

NITECORE TIKI

The three-click switch can turn on the secondary light, first, turn on the UV, click the switch to white light, then click the switch to white flash mode, long-press the switch to close, the dimming shift is also more convenient.

NITECORE TIKI

Because the PC material of the lamp body itself has a certain soft light effect, so the brightness of the sidelight is not dazzling, can achieve close uniform light lighting, outdoor to see a map what more practical. Personally, it would be better if the sidelight and the switch were not on the same plane so that visible or ultraviolet light would not enter the eye directly when the switch is pressed.

NITECORE TIKI

The sidelight can also realize the flicker function. When doing outdoor activities, you can turn on the flicker function of the TIKI sidelight to form a signal source, which can be turned on to mark the camp location, organize a team to climb at night, ride at night, or need help to give others a more eye-catching hint.

The UV function is most commonly used to check banknotes. TIKI is attached to the key chain, so it is very convenient to check banknotes whenever you go shopping. TIKI USES UV light at the wavelength of 365nm with a power of 0.5w, which is good for fluorescence excitation. In addition, ultraviolet light in jade flaw detection, fluorescent detection is also very useful.

NITECORE TIKI

Performance measurement

After looking at the TIKI’s versatile lighting capabilities, take a look at the main features. Test the TIKI’s brightness with an illuminometer. The main lamp is about 15cm away from the illuminometer.

NITECORE TIKI

The illumination of the white light of the side lamp is about 250lux, and the main lamp has 4 regular light Settings, and the corresponding illumination steps are shown in the figure below. Generally, the extremely bright Settings have a slightly larger span, in order to ensure the violent lighting effect of the extremely bright Settings, and the brightness is gradually decreasing, in order to control the calorimeter.

NITECORE TIKI

When it comes to heating, I used a thermocouple thermometer to measure the temperature of the stainless steel surface of the lamp holder while doing the illumination test. The starting room temperature is about 20.9℃, and the lamp holder temperature is 38.3℃ when the gear is down, which is not too high.

NITECORE TIKI

When the illuminance is kept level and the heat dissipation is roughly balanced, the lamp holder temperature is 43℃, which is well controlled. Even if the hand accidentally touches the lamp, it will not cause skin scald. The organic material of the lamp body has poor thermal conductivity, that is, the state of mild temperature.

NITECORE TIKI

 Keep the main light on for about 1 minute, TIKI straight down to the highlighter, and keep the near-horizontal illumination output for a long time. This stage lasts for about 30 minutes, and the TIKI brightness curves down again and stays at the low lighter level. So the TIKI will last about an hour or so on a full charge.

NITECORE TIKI

TIKI is a built-in polymer lithium battery. There is a micro-USB charging interface at the end of the lamp body. Normally, it is dust-proof and waterproof with a rubber cap.

NITECORE TIKI

During charging, the blue indicator light inside the lamp body will light up, and the charging current is about 0.12a. It is also safe for small batteries to charge with A small current, and the charging power is about 0.6w.

NITECORE TIKI

 It took about 1 hour and 1 quarter to charge, the blue indicator light was off, the meter showed 133mAh and 0.66wh charge, and the battery capacity was not marked.

NITECORE TIKI

NITECORE lighting products are almost always IPX8 waterproof, while TIKI has a lower level of dust and water, IP66. In order to do the test, I turned on the main light and threw it directly into the stream, which had no impact at all. After taking it out, all the operations were normal. Even in the case of heavy rain, the use would not cause damage.

NITECORE TIKI

Simple summary

NITECORE continues to bring forth new products in the field of key lights. NITECORE’s products are becoming smaller and more pleasing in appearance, more and more functions, and not more complicated in operation, which conforms to the current trend of minimalism. The TIKI and the TIKI LE are different, can play different roles, and are good portable lighting tools to have.

NITECORE TIKI

In general, TIKI light and portable is the biggest advantage, the 300lm light flux is sufficient for daily use, and the battery life and charging speed are also good, especially the UV sub-lamp, which has a good performance in fluorescence detection. And go outdoors activity, the weight of 10 grams is light if have no matter, can bring light at the critical moment however, a piece of more price, be worth proceeding with.
