The Nitecore MH12 has in-built charging capability via the supplied USB lead and an impressive maximum output of 1000 lumens. Similar to the MH10 but with the addition of a forward click tail switch with momentary on function.

Includes: Nitecore NL188 3200mAh 18650 Li-ion battery.

The MH12 can be powered by 1x18650 li-ion battery (which can be recharged inside the torch) or 2xCR123 non-rechargeable batteries. The torch cannot use RCR123/16340 li-ion batteries.

Switch on with the tail switch and then change modes via the side switch with four brightness levels plus strobe / sos / location beacon modes. Intelligent memory function remembers the last mode used. The side switch incorporates a blue light that displays the battery voltage when both switches are pressed simultaneously and also flashes to indicate when battery power is low. Full charge time is around 6 hours.

Brightness levels based on 1x18650 2600 mAh battery :

  • High: 1000 Lumens - 1 hour 15 minute runtime
  • Mid: 240 Lumens - 6 hour runtime
  • Low: 70 Lumens - 28 hour runtime
  • Ultra Low: 1 Lumen - 520 hour runtime

Compatible with all Nitecore 25mm filters and diffusers. The RSW1 remote pressure switch fits this torch.

Beam distance of up to 232 metres, waterproof to IPX-8 (2 metres submersible) & impact resistant to drops from 1.5 metres.

Includes: Holster, 18650 battery, pocket clip, usb lead, wrist lanyard & spare o-ring.
