5 of 5 Fantastic flashlight January 18, 2021
Reviewer: Mark C from Shasta Lake, CA United States  
This thing is awesome! The flashlight is very high quality and super bright. USC-C charging makes for fast charging. I really don’t have anything negative to say about the flashlight itself.
The holster it came with could use some improvement. Both of the small, plastic adjuster clips it came with are gone, lost forever in less than a week of EDC. That belt width adjustment needs some serious redesign. And, it holds the light too high. I wish it held the light about an inch lower. This is not a large flashlight, but in the blister it just sits too high. I’m looking for a different holster that’ll work better. Time will tell.
Overall, a fantastic flashlight for EDC.

5 of 5 Excellent Do everything lignt January 13, 2021
Reviewer: steven araka from Honoholulu, HI United States  
My 7th Nitecore light. It was on promotion so I got it. I thought my newP12 was good. This beats it. I carry 2 flashlights on my belt. P30 for long range and the P12. This MH12S might be replacing the P12. The extra 600 lumens helps. The difference is noticeable. Range is better, and enough beam wideness to make useful in a lot of situations. I hope they upgrade the P3O to 1800 lumens.

If there is one light you can have, then get this one. I think you will be very happy. It fits 99% of daily situations, and priced right. The big battery offers excellent run time. And the build is solid. That is one reason why I own so many Nitecores.

5 of 5 Best Flashlights Ever January 12, 2021
Reviewer: PaPtriPatrickith from Fond Central Widu Lac, WI United States  
I've owned two of you flashlights for many years. I was recently up visiting my son and his expecting wife in the Twin Cities. Before going on a early evening walk, I grabbed my Nitecore EC23 flashlight just incase we went for an extended walk. Sure enough, we walked further than originally planned.
Before we arrived back home it was dark. I started to use my flashlight to alert drivers to our whereabouts and to spot wildlife at the edges of woods and lakes. My son and daughter-in-law were amazed at the brightness of such a small flashlight. So I ordered two more Nitecore flashlights and gave them to my children. I use mine nearly everyday for my early morning walks with my dog. I keep one in my truck, just in case.
