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.

rub cap for the usb is very loose December 2, 2018
Reviewer: Tianchi Chen from Medford, MA United States  
I have not test it thoroughly yet.

The rub cap is very annoying and can not attach and seal the usb tightly.

The last two brightness modes have tiny difference which is not very useful. if they have almost the same brightness level, why bother having two separate modes? weird.

Excellent portable flashlight October 25, 2018
Reviewer: DAddNDanDan from LORRAINE, QC Canada  
Just received a few days ago , used it for the first time today. Love the size and very good brightness .
Rubber cover over usb port does not hold very tight in the closed position  , easily opened if accidentally touched. But flashlight seams to be very sturdy , time will tell.

compared to the P12GT September 26, 2018
Reviewer: Freddyj from USA  
A few things I prefer about my P12GT's. The MH12GTS doesn't have a centered on/off button on the tailpiece, it's off centered.  Also, the on/off button is not quite as high on the MH12GTS.  I prefer a strike bezel, which the MH12GTS doesn't have either.  I do like the USB charging on the MH12GTS and the size, at just about 1/4 inch longer than the P12GT is alright.  Plus, there is a difference in the brightness.. the MH12GTS is brighter and a bit more flood than a spot like the P12GT.
