The great thing about flashlights is that you can get some serious performance without the bulk. Nitecore know this well, with their increasingly powerful keychain lights like the TUBE and the TIP. The new Nitecore TINI keychain light may be tiny, but its output and feature set couldn't be further from its name.

Remember when the TUBE could get the job done with 45 lumens yet still disappear on a keychain? The TINI outdoes its predecessor on all fronts, with 380 lumens at its disposal and weighing under half an ounce with its actually tiny metallic shell. Its Cree XP-G2 S3 LED puts out 4 modes controlled by 2 side switches on the body of the light. When paired with its beaded reflector, you get soft, uniform light suitable for illuminating a workspace or immediate area. For added convenience it's powered by a built-in, micro-USB rechargeable lithium-ion battery that reaches up to 60 hours of runtime.

While the TINI does sacrifice a bit of water resistance to integrate a built-in micro USB charger (meaning it can take some water splashes but don't go swimming with it), the light still comes with a respectable IP54 protection rating, meaning it won't have problems handling daily tasks. And with an included split ring slot and availability in 7 colors, it can be right at home in any EDC configuration and aesthetic.

Tiny in size, but not in performance—the TINI is here to play. Pick one up in your choice of color from the Amazon link below.

I've had the TIP for more than a year now, and find it to be the perfect EDC light. What I particularly appreciate is the TIP's plastic clip which, among other things, enables the light to be used as a headlamp by clipping it to a hat.

This thing is absolutely brilliant. That output is pretty intense as well. I'm kinda glad I hadn't bought a Tube or TIP yet. I'm hoping they'll come out with a high CRI version before I decide to buy.
