The Nitecore MH12GT 1000 Lumen Compact flashlight brings the Grand Throw upgrade to the best-selling MH12. The improved CREE XP-L HI V3 LED offers up to 349 yards throw and a peak beam intensity of 25700cd - a 190% increase from its predecessor! The included 18650 rechargeable battery has also been upgraded to a high capacity 3400mAH cell which can provide up to 520 hours runtime on a single charge. Suited for tactical use, the MH12GT is easily operated via a dual tailcap and side switch user interface. A single tail cap button allows for one-handed operation of on/off functionality while a conveniently located side switch lets users select from four brightness levels and three special modes.

Add power to the MH12GT easily with the built-in USB charging port and included charging cable. Simply connect the MH12GT to any available USB power source and the blue charging indicator will turn off upon completion. (Note: The MH12GT needs to be turned on while charging) The charging indicator also doubles as a power indicator to alert users of low battery levels. Constructed from durable, aerograde alumunium, the MH12GT is built to withstand work and play. The slim 1" body is ideal for everyday carry making the MH12GT your new go-to flashlight. 

Built around an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, HAIII military-grade hard-anodized in black for maximum resistance, the Nitecore MH12GT is lightweight and compact: at 13,9 cm (5.48") of overall length, it sports a 2,54 cm (1") body and bezel diameter, and an overall weight of 87 grams (3.07 oz) with battery included.

The MH12GT offers impact resistance against drops from a maximum height of 1,5 meters (4.92 ft) and water resistance against both splashes and submersion up to 2 meters (6.56 ft).  The bezel of the Nitecore MH12GT features a crystal-coated reflector and an embedded thermoelectric separation technology for its copper substrate, providing improved thermal dissipation for an overall extended service life.  An ATR (advanced temperature regulation) module also allows the MH12GT to adjust to ambient environment temperature and maintain optimal performance even in the harshest climates.

Perfect for blinding everything and everyone. It really does illuminate objects far in the distance. I bought it for camping, fishing, evening walks and to use while having a bon fire or to just keep in the car. Not something I would add to my EDC as it is a bit long. I'm writing this review for the 5 dollar coupon so I can get a smaller flashlight. Overall I am definitely pleased with this flashlight. I did a lot of research and this was the one I chose. If you want a legit hand held spot light this is perfect for that.

Very tough light, very bright too this is my 2nd & will buy more nitecore products.




First Nitecore product. Very happy with the output of this light. I use it to light up my backyard which is about 80ft. Long to let the dog out. The throw is so powerful that I can light up all the backyards around me. The tint is perfect, no annoying green. I will buy another Nitecore product.
