I received a sample of the Nitecore P30 for YouTube review from Andrew-Amanda.com. I have to say, I had high hopes for this light after I first heard about it and was very pleased to not be disappointed.The P30 is, I feel significantly more diminutive than even the Olight M2x UT yet in my testing it came in 200 lumens higher than the M2x with 100 meters less throw. Given the size difference of these two lights I was expecting more than 100 meter gap in throw, but was pleased to see the P30 perform well. Lux tested at 2 meters I got 650M for the P30 and 750M for the M2x-UT. Lumens were 1,100 for P30 and 900 for M2x-UT. All testing was done relative to one another and using ANSI parameters. Also the P30 imo just has a super clean looking beam.
Manufacturer output specs:
Momentary forward rear clicky, side e-switch for modes, long press side for strobe, SOS, beacon, short press exit blinky. Single clicking side switch for mode switching.
Not mentioned in the video but previously mentioned in a P30 thread here on BLF is that the tailcap on P30 can be swapped for tailcaps from the SRT series lights for tail standing the P30. I tried and it works perfect. Also Solarforce tail caps can fit on the P30. Looking forward to getting the stainless one tomorrow.
More information about this reasonably priced light, shockingly from Nitecore is in my video. If you like the review I would very much appreciate if you like and or subscribe on YouTube. Thanks.
