The P12 LED Tactical Pocket Flashlight from Nitecore is a powerful and ultra-compact pocket-sized light that is built with military and law-enforcement use in mind. Its output comes from a white Cree XM-L2 (U2) LED with four outputs from 1 to 1000 lumens. Press the 2-stage pushbutton tailcap switch for momentary activation, click for constant-on. The output intensity, strobe, location beacon, and SOS signal, are controlled using an intelligent selector switch on the body. The switch remembers the last output intensity used and automatically goes to that output the next time it is turned on, even with momentary activation. An illuminated battery-status indicator is integrated into the selector switch.

Built for durability, the light features an aluminum housing with a Type III hard-anodized black finish that resists scratching and corrosion. It is o-ring sealed to be IPX8 rated and submersible to 6.6', and impact resistant to 5 feet. A textured diamond pattern is machined into the handle to provide a sure grip, and there is a removable tactical ring that fits on the handle for use with a 'cigar-style' two-handed pistol grip. The light can run on 1 x 18650 or 2 x CR123 li-ion rechargeable, or 2 x CR123 disposable batteries. There is reverse-polarity protection that prevents damage to the light's circuitry if the batteries are put in incorrectly.

      Authentic Awesomeness

      Comments about NITECORE P12 LED Tactical Pocket Flashlight:

      I have purchased probably 100 items over the years from B&H.... I was searching for this flashlight and feared fake eBay items so I thought, whoa! What about B&H.... Yup! Very competive pricing so I searched no further. I know I will get authentic items here. Actually the charger for this light has a validation code and you input it on Nitecore website to authenticate your purchase is not fake. So I get my stuff and now get to play with it. This light I will use at work and after using it for a day I can tell you it ROCKS! Quality, feel, performance, all are A+ scores. Thank you B&H for continuing to meet my needs.

          Great carry around light fits in my wife's purse and is strong enough for her to use as a defensive weapon too. I would have liked to have seen a set of the batteries included they are pricey and were difficult to find they are a size I have never seen or used before.

              This flashlight is very small and easy to operate. Yet, it is super bright. I think it is just as bright as the nitecore tm26 2500 lumin flashlight.

                I had a P20 and bought this one for major security of the ON switch at the bottom. Both of them are very good and make the same amount of light, portable and with rechargeable batteries.
                Not so fan of the strobe, can't make a use of it.

                Comments about NITECORE P12 LED Tactical Pocket Flashlight:

                As a firearms instructor I am absolutely recommending this Tactical Light to my students. It does everything as advertised and is a great price for the features.

                There are really only two things I would change if I had the chance.

                1: The mode button can be a little hard to find in a panic situation. If you left your light on a lower setting, or want to get to the strobe fast it can be a challenge. Not hard to overcome but definitely need to work out the muscle memory on it.

                2: The strobe is a bit fast. It's still effective but if they slowed the strobe down a bit it would be far more effective.

                Other than those items I am very pleased with Nitecore and will continue to refer my students to them.
