The Nitecore MH20GT is new for 2016 and has a maximum output of 1000 lumens from the Cree XP-L HI V3 LED. Powered by 1 x 18650 rechargeable Li-ion battery (recommended) or 2 x CR123A primary cells.
The torch is rechargeable allowing an 18650 cell to be charged inside the MH20GT via the micro USB port with the supplied lead. In addition, the MH20GT features Nitecore's patented advanced temperature regulation (ATR), which protects the LED from overheating by monitoring its temperature and adjusting the output accordingly.
Please note: The MH20GT includes a Nitecore 18650 2600mAh rechargeable battery.
The Cree XP-L HI V3 LED has a domeless design, which gives the torch a long, concentrated beam with a maximum throw of 362 meters making this a leader in it's class. For anyone looking for a compact, lightweight, long range rechargeable LED torch there is no better light on the market that we know of!

This little thug packs a massive punch, small in the hand and pocket but really does the business when switched on. I wad truly amazed at the power.

This is a super-compact, bright, medium-long throw torch. I've a MH20 already, and when the GT version came out with nearly 3-times the light intensity and 50% more throw I thought "why not?" The beam is more focused due to the longer reflector & it does punch out a lot further than the non-GT. A great little torch but a tad too large for one's pocket. The only improvement on this would be a forward clicky button but that would compromise the size - so I'll take this compromise for the sake of size.
