Small in Size, Big on Power

Performance and portability come together in the NITECORE MH23 rechargeable pocket-sized searchlight. Equipped with a powerful CREE XHP35 HD LED, this flashlight produces a powerful 1800 lumen beam with 322 yards of throw while remaining compact enough to fit comfortably in your hand or pocket. Five total brightness outputs and three special modes make this versatile flashlight ideal for everything from search & rescue to everyday carry. Add it to your gear, and you'll soon see why this flashlight is one of the most powerful of its size.

Easy Single Button Control

No complex user interface or hidden modes to find. The MH23 is controlled via the single side control side on the bezel of the light. In addition to on/off and brightness adjustment, there's also direct access to Turbo and Ultralow modes so you can always get the light you want - no more, no less.

Convenient Built-in Charging

Keep the MH23 charged using the built-in charging port feature for USB charging at home and on the go. Use the included USB charging cable to connect to a USB compatible adapter, laptop, power bank or solar panel. An integrated power indicator light located under the control switch will report the remainining battery power upon installation to keep you informed.

Reviewer: neal bNeal from urbandale, IA United States  
A triumph for Nitecore. Little light does it all and fits in your pocket. I like Nitecore products plain and simple. Very well made. Only problem is their price, expensive.

Amazing February 23, 2019
Reviewer: John from NY  
The Nitecore MH23 is expertly engineered. It is quite a piece of workmanship. Well executed. I cannot find anything that needs improvement. I have not been able to say that about any other flashlight I have bought (there have been many). Great job Nitecore!
