1800 Lumen Long Throw Beam

Say goodbye to the dark with the NITECORE MH12GTS rechargeable flashlight. This upgrade to the popular MH12GT replaces the LED with a CREE XHP35 HD that's capable of emitting an 1800 lumen beam with up to 247 yards of throw distance. With 5 brightness levels total and 3 special modes, this flashlight offers the flexibility of a powerful searchlight when you really need it and up close lighting for everyday tasks.

Built-in USB Charging

The MH12GTS is powered by 1x 18650 battery (>8A output) (included) and can be easily recharged directly via a built-in charging port on the tail cap. Compatible with any available USB power source such as power banks and solar panels, the MH12GTS can be charged at home or on the go.

Revolutionary Waterproof Charging Port Design

Use the flashlight indoor and outdoor under any weather conditions. Combining the waterproof design inside the charging port with the rubber cover, the flashlight has dual protections against water, dust and elements. This revolutionary waterproof design waterproofs MH12GTS's internal components even when the USB port is not covered.

Ideal for tactical, camping, repairs and emergencies, the MH12GTS features a tactical tail cap switch for On/Off operation and a Mode button located near the bezel for output adjustment. You'll always have access to your most frequently used brightness thanks to a mode memory that returns the light to the previously used brightness. There's even direct access to Turbo and Ultralow outputs to put all the control in your hands.

5 of 5 Best Flashlight June 18, 2019
Reviewer: Harry Magnes from AlbuquerquAe, NM United States  
I have been a "collector" of flashlights for 20 years, and about 10 years ago I moved to LED flashlights.  Since I discovered Nitecore, I have been incredibly impressed. These are simply the BEST flashlights I have ever used, the most reliable, durable, wonderful.  And the MH12GTS has surpassed my expectations. With a huge 1800 lumen brightness, ability to recharge thru a waterproof port without removing the battery, this is the most amazing flashlight. Thanks to the Nitecore store! The website is perfect, and the variety of flashlights is mind-boggling. There is even a flashlight with white, UV, blue, green, and red LEDs!!

5 of 5 Another great Nicore Flashlight May 30, 2019
Reviewer: John from tacoma, WA United States  
I have owned the mh20 and the tiny monster tm26 for a couple years now. Hands down the best Flashlights  I have ever owned.  I was kind of a Flashlight collector (all the new stuff out there)
Now I only  collect nicore products
The mh12gts didn't let me down, is small, light weight hardly notice it clipped to my belt, and powerful.
I'm a happy camper
