The R25 uses a CREE XP-L HI V3 LED to shoot 800 lumens out to 321 meters. It has four modes of Strobe, High, Medium and Low. You can program the R25 to operate in three different mode groups. The Tactical group gives you Strobe and High only. The Law Enforcement group gives you Strobe, High and Medium (called Low officially). And last, the General group gives you Strobe, High, Medium and Low (called Ultralow by us). Nitecore includes a specialized battery with every R25, the NL188DW is an 18650 that produces 3.7V with a 3200mAh capacity.

Machined from aerospace-grade aluminum alloy, the R25 is hard-anodized with a military-grade finish to keep durable and easy to hold. The knurling aids in that. The titanium clip is reversible and removable to allow you to slide the light onto your pocket or a hat. A hat will make it a little difficult to use the tailcap's dual switches though.
