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 An AMAZING light at an AMAZING price...... July 12, 2020
Reviewer: Jeff C from Bonita, CA UniSan Diegoted States  
I ordered the MH12GTS and NITECORE gave me 15% off, Great start. My order was shipped right away and arrived earlier than expected 2 days!!!!.

I bought this light to replace my old surefire 6Z which has served me well for many years. This light is crazy bright. It is well constructed and fits nice in my hands and fits right into my old holster (bonus).

I am looking forward to many years of use with my new light. Great job NITECORE.

On a side note for the company, my one thought for improvement would be to make the tail cap switch stick out a little further so it can be operated  using the palm of your hand instead of the thumb.

5 of 5 Super Strong Flash Light July 5, 2020
Reviewer: Nate from Hawaii  
I've been looking for a tactical flash light, very bright and long throw. It's very hard to buy something online, with confidence it's going to do what it says. First day at work, I was not disappointed. Thank you for kick ass flash light. I'll be back to get more products.

5 of 5 Just what I was looking for! June 22, 2020
Reviewer: Neil Deatrick from Woodridge, IL United States  
The Nitecore MH12GTS works fantastic in any and all levels of low light. Being able to increase and decrease the lumen output is a fantastic feature, and is the precise reason why I purchased it in the first place. Very happy with my purchase. 10/10 would buy again.

This is the seventh product in this line that I have purchased. Obviously I am impressed with their products. Being rechargeable doubles the value.
