This light brings with it Nitecore's history of testing new ideas and seeing how they stick. While the die-cast unibody is not new, the P18's switch layout is. It has a metal side switch near the tail, which controls just the red LED. On the tailcap, next to the screw, the main power button controls the main CREE XHP35 LED and its modes. The P18 is powered by an included 3100mAh 18650 battery.

The P18 is machined from aerospace-grade aluminum alloy, given a military-grade hard-anodized finish. This alongside the knurling on the body will keep bare hands from being rubbed raw while using the light. Detachable from the P18 is a pocket clip, which allows for deep carry with and without.
