Compact 2-in-1 Lantern Flashlight

It's a lantern! It's a flashlight! It's ... both! The NITECORE LR12 gives you the power of a compact everyday flashlight with the utility of a retractable diffusor to instantly convert your light into a pocket-sized lantern. A CREE XP-L HD V6 LED emits up to 1000 lumens output with up to 182 yards of throw which is plenty of light for household tasks, searching & inspecting and all your other EDC uses. Only a twist away is the retractable diffusor that turns your output into soft, 360° ambient lighting you can use for camping and emergency backup. At 4.18" in length and 2.77oz, the LR12 can be carried comfortably, even in your pocket!

Adjustable Output with a Twist

With four total brightness outputs and beacon mode, you'll have the right light you need for any job. The LR12 uses an intuitive twist control to turn the light on and off and adjust output. Simply tighten the tail cap completely to turn the light on and loosen it to turn off. Repeating this action within 2 seconds will cycle the light through ultralow-low-mid-high and beacon outputs. The LR12 uses 1x 18650 or 2x CR123A batteries to operate and can run for up to 900 hours on the lowest brightness.

Hands-Free Options

Equipped with a magnetic tail cap, metal hanging loop and lanyard, the LR12 gives you plenty of ways to secure and position your light. Whether you're sticking the lantern under the hood of your car or suspending it from a tree branch, an IPX8 water proof rating and 1m impact resistance will keep the light safe in tough conditions.

3 of 5 Disappointing on/off Switch Design April 4, 2023
Reviewer: Greg P from United States  
The on/off switch for this flashlight is actually twisting the case as if you were going to take the battery out. If you keep twisting it will come open, but you're supposed to stop when the light goes off then close it again to turn it back on. I do not like this — it feels like I'm leaving the body in a loosened (and possibly non-airtight) state just to keep it turned off. The seal may still work, but this is not ideal.

Other than that it seems to be a good light/lantern.

5 of 5 feels great, almost there March 27, 2022
Reviewer: Damon from WashiWashington dcngton, DC United States  
This is a little bit nicer as a lantern than flashlight. There are two controls that operate it: there is a magnetic cap area that has to be turned rapidly to activate the light. So when the light is not activated, the battery door is slightly unscrewed. A few quick tightend/loosen/tighten cycles through the 3 power levels. Then there is another screw knob on the light. Turning this one ejects a plastic tube, lipstick style. I use this attached to loops on my gear so that I have a lantern hanging from my chest. When metal is available, I can use the strong magnet to attach it as a work light.
