5 of 5 P12 1200 April 1, 2020
Reviewer: Pedro PerezPedro from Naples, FL United States  
A great flashlight, over 3 hours at full power, I own 3 of them and I love it. I will definitely recommend the P12 1200.

5 of 5 I love this light!! March 17, 2020
Reviewer: Mike from Dublin, CA United States  
I bought this light to use at work as a technician.  I did a bunch of research finding a light that has the appropriate range of brightness and runtimes. This light hits the mark perfect for me. It has some quirky stuff like the power meter but it does work fine. The one main thing I would change is to make the button on the back flat. It works fine the way it is though.

4 of 5 Nice light but a few improvements needed March 11, 2020
Reviewer: Jeffrey Forhan from Merrimack, NH United States  
Nice light, bright. Balances well in the hand. However there are a few improvements that NEED to be made:

1. As mentioned before, tailcap has no protection from being accidentally activated.
2. There is no “tactical” tailcap available for sale (should be manufactured with a tac cap or similar)
3. Accessories do not match flashlight.
    a. Metal clip is for smaller P12 and not the new P12.
        The one shipped with it is the “B” type from the spare parts page.
    b. Some small plastic clip. Unknown what that is for

3 of 5 New p12 February 13, 2020
Reviewer: Albert Wolske from Staten Island, NY United States  
I'm losing faith in nitecore. I bought the new p12 hoping it's a good replacement for p16. Since there is no way to replace the p16 lens. The p12 has no button guard. My co workers constantly tell me my light is on. Once I smelled something burning... turns out light was on in holster and melted the waist band on my hoodie.  This light is now regulated to my junk drawer only for emergencies.  I've a few issues with the lights from nitecore and think I'm going to try a different manufacturer for my next purchase
