Nitecore MH12S 1800 Lumen USB-C Rechargeable Flashlight


The Nitecore MH12S is the latest upgrade to the classic MH12. With an 1800 lumen output and over 321 yards of throw, it’s the brightest one yet. MH12S has incredible power options between the included 5000mAh 21700 battery and a battery sleeve for 18650, CR123, and RC123 compatibility. Built in USB-C port allows super fast charging. 1500 hours of ultra low, means you can count on the MH12S when you need it. Precise spatial distribution brings the size down to just 5.55” long, and a weight of only 5.23 oz with included battery. The MH12S is a great option as a duty or EDC flashlight, with the included hard holster, pocket clip, and lanyard.

Be prepared for any situation with two modes of operation. Daily mode gives access to five brightness levels, plus strobe, beacon, and SOS mode. Tactical mode strips away the beacon and SOS modes for more precise lighting control. Durable HA III aluminium construction, IP68 waterproof rating, and advanced temperature regulation help the MH12S stand up to any environment. The tactical tail switch allows for constant or momentary illumination. No matter if you use it for daily tasks, on patrol, or for camping and hiking, the MH12S is an indispensable companion day in and day out.
