NITECORE MH12 overview

  • 1Description

Designed with military and law-enforcement use in mind, the Nitcore MH12 Multitask Hybrid Series Rechargeable LED Flashlight is a powerful and compact pocket-sized light that is as small as most back-up lights but powerful enough to use as a primary EDC illuminator. Its output comes from a white Cree XM-L2 U2 LED with four outputs from 1 to 1000 lumens. The output intensity, strobe, location beacon, and SOS signal modes are controlled using an intelligent selector switch on the body. The switch remembers the last output intensity used and automatically goes to that output level the next time it is turned on, even with momentary activation.

Built for durability, this light features an aluminum housing with a Type III hard-anodized finish that resists scratching and corrosion. It is O-ring sealed with an IPX8 rating for submersion to 6.6', and is impact resistant to 5 feet. The light runs on one 18650 rechargeable battery and has an integrated charging port to enable powering up the battery while it is in the light for additional convenience. In a pinch, the light will run on two CR123A disposable batteries, but with reduced runtimes. Reverse-polarity protection circuitry prevents damage to the light's circuitry if the batteries are put in incorrectly, over-heat protection circuitry automatically steps down the output if the light gets too hot, and fins machined into the head help to dissipate heat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Virtually Perfect This is easily the best flashlight I've used. I find myself wishing it was dark already so that I could use it. The form and the weight are just right. If you attach the clip correctly, the clip will fit in between your fingers and your palm; your thumb resting on the tail button in between the things that stick up and protect it. The brightness is great and it has great reach as well. I find the number of modes perfect, not too many to cycle through, but enough to have a plenty of flexibility. I like that it won't cycle through strobe, SOS, and beacon unless you hold the mode button for a whole second. This prevents me from hurting my friends eyes when changing modes. Also, if you hold the tail button down part way it will turn on, and will turn off when you release, a feature I expect in every decent flashlight.� The mode button also acts as a power indicator. If you hold it down while you turn the flashlight on it will blink the first digit of the voltage remaining, and after a short pause it will blink the second digit. While on, the power indicator blinks once every 2 seconds when below 50%; it blinks rapidly when battery needs to be replaced or charged.� Which brings me to the next thing I love about this flashlight. It comes with a rechargeable battery that can be charged inside the flashlight with a standard micro USB cable. (included.) This saves me from buying CR123 batteries, and prevents me from running out of power since it can be charged practically anywhere. If you've read this far, go ahead and buy this flashlight. As a side note, I discovered the strobe mode can disorient flies long enough to kill them. Who knew?
