Nitecore® TIKI is a powerful 300 lumen USB rechargeable light packed in a tiny, pinky-sized body. 4 brightness levels with up to 40 hour runtime on ultralow and just 0.37 oz (10.5 g) make it great for UL adventures. And to recharge, simply plug into a power bank.

TIKI is available in two versions: TIKI and TIKI LE. The main difference is the auxiliary LEDs and the housing color.

Model Housing Primary LED Auxiliary LEDs
   TIKI Clear 300 lumen, cool white High-CRI white & UV
   TIKI LE Black 300 lumen, cool white Red & Blue


TIKI has an auxiliary high-CRI white LED with more neutral, warmer light and CRI ≥ 90 for more vivid, natural true color and reduced eye strain. Perfect for short-range illumination such as reading. Stand it up on end for lantern-like performance to help read a map or illuminate your cooking area.

CRI (Color Rendering Index) is a measurement of how colors look under a light source as compared with sunlight. The index is measured from 0-100, with a perfect 100 indicating colors under the light source appear the same as they would under natural sunlight.

TIKI also has an auxiliary UV light that can be used to charge phosphorescent materials. The high-CRI white LED has a flashing mode to freak out your friends with that scary strobe effect.

TIKI LE features auxiliary red and blue LEDs. The red LED can help preserve night vision, useful during star gazing and night photography. There’s also a red/blue flashing mode to pull over speeding thru hikers or get your late night disco on.

To keep it simple, a single button controls everything. Double press for ultralow light. Repeatedly press the button to cycle from Ultralow>Low>Mid>High>Ultralow. Then press and hold to turn off. To directly access high mode, press and hold the button, release to turn off. The double press reduces the likelihood of the button being activated in your pocket or pack.

To access the auxiliary lights, triple press. Then repeatedly press the button to cycle from UV>White CRI>White CRI Flash>UV on TIKI and Red>Blue>Red/Blue Flash>Red on TIKI LE. Press and hold to turn off.

TIKI has a built-in Li-ion rechargeable battery comparable to a AAA yet much more sustainable than using standard disposable batteries. An intelligent protective charging circuit and a Micro USB connection make it easy to recharge. Since you probably already carry a spare battery to charge your phone, there’s no need to worry about running out of power or replacing batteries, just plug into a power bank, wall charger, computer, or car (USB cable NOT provided). The light maintains full functionality while charging.

To charge, plug it in and a blue light under the button will indicate charging and turns off when complete. It takes approximately 1 hr 20 min to fully charge the battery. A rubber cover protects the USB port from dirt and moisture.
