With a blazing 1800-lumen output and the ability to run on three kinds of rechargeable batteries, the Nitecore MH12S Rechargeable LED Flashlight is a compact, versatile torch suited to professional, recreational, and home use. It features five output levels, a randomly changing disorienting strobe, SOS signal mode, and emergency location beacon. A push button on the tail activates the light on a momentary or constant-on basis, while a second switch on the side is used to select brightness and flash. The light works in two modes—Tactical, which includes the five brightness levels and the strobe, and Daily, which includes all three flashing settings as well as all five output levels. Pick the one that best suits your work.
You'll get impressive brightness and runtime from the included 5000mAh 21700 battery, but the MH12S can also be powered by one 18650 or two CR123A batteries. The lightweight, durable housing is made of aluminum with a Type III hard anodized finish. It is impact-resistant to 3.3' and IP68-rated waterproof, submersible to 6.6'. An integrated USB Type-C charging port behind the head charges the included 21700 battery in the light, eliminating the need for a separate charging cradle. Reverse-polarity protection prevents damage to the light if the battery is put in wrong, and overheat protection automatically drops the output if the light gets too hot.
