rating rating rating rating rating Rated 5 / 5 (8 reviews)

Maximum output of 800 lumens. Powered by 1x18650 or 2xCR123 or 2xRCR123 batteries.

The new Nitecore P20UV is built on the same platform as the popular P20 with the addition of four ultraviolet LEDs set into the reflector which illuminate at 365nm. Purpose built for authentication, forensics and identification applications, the P20UV is the ideal tool for Police, Security and Military personnel.

The torch can use 1x18650 or 2xCR123 or 2xRCR123 batteries.

The P20UV features a patented lever switch to enable fast and easy access to the strobe mode even when wearing gloves with single handed operation. Three selectable modes of operation allow the user to define the user interface:

  • Tactical Mode: Strobe / High / Ultraviolet
  • Law Enforcement Mode: Strobe / High / Mid / Ultraviolet
  • General Mode: Strobe / High / Medium / Low / Ultraviolet

Once the desired operation mode has been set the P20UVs intelligent memory keeps this stored so you can be sure exactly how the light will behave in any given situation. A built in LED on the tail cap switch (patented)  indicates the remaining battery voltage to ensure you know when the batteries are low on power.

An expensive piece of equipment in fairness but a good one and advisable for anyone who takes their job seriously. Despite working for one of the 'best' law enforcment agencies in the world my previous torch went walkabouts and despite misgivings from the wife at how much it costs i feel it was justified. Either way it was helpful as i found my way to the spare room in the darkness once she found out the price. The brightness is unmatched, i shined it at my cat when i first got it and now i am pretty certain she wont be having kittens forever. The design is sleek and warry looking and fits nicely in my grip. The mode button is also pretty cool but im unsure why it needed the cover protecting it and had to make up a story when someone asked to avoid looking like a fool. The black light (UV) mode is also massively useful as in the past ive carried two seperate light sources and as my wife so eloquently put 'its two bloody torches you can lose.' Now i only have one to misplace. My only gripe is the case. I spent an extra 20.00 to get black tactical molle style pouch as i was unaware that it came with one which is perfectly good (albeit not looking anywhere near as cool!). my advice is that if you are going to spend this much money on a torch, take it to a trophy shop and get your mame or number engraved on it. It wont stop a toe rag lifting it from the locker room but it will mean they will be edgy about using it in you're presence.

This is my first purchase of a 'proper' torch and I am extremely pleased with it. It is early days yet but I can see this being a friend for some time to come.
