Compact, lightweight, and versatile, the P12 LED Tactical Pocket Flashlight from Nitecore can serve as everything from an everyday carry torch to a weapon light, and is suited to law enforcement, military, recreational, and home use. Its white Cree XM-L2 (U2) LED offers four outputs from 1 to 1000 lumens. Press the 2-stage push-button tailcap switch for momentary activation or click it 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 submersible to 6.6' and impact-resistant to 5'. 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. Using separately sold Nitecore mount and remote switch accessories, it can be used as a weapon light. 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.

question

Where can you buy the battery?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can purchase them from B&H. I use the the CR123 batteries with this light. It takes two. I get my batteries from Battery Junction. They are as cheap as $1.00/each but there are many places that sell these.
