5 of 5 Great, powerful flashlight September 26, 2020
Reviewer: Sam ReedSamuel Reed from Houston, TX United StHoustonates  
We now own two of these and have been very happy with variable light levels, length of batter charge and durability.  Very sturdy, well built and nice compact size for the amount of light it is capable of putting out. Terrific for a variety of uses.

5 of 5 Nitecore P12 September 21, 2020
Reviewer: Jay from Montco. Pa.  
I work at a prison, I needed a bright light that I could carry on me. The prision lights are to big and not that bright. The P12 fell down 3 flights of stairs and still worked like nothing happened. What a Great Light.

5 of 5 Nitecore P12 August 11, 2020
Reviewer: Mike from Philadelphia, PA.  
Purchased at a gun show a few years ago. Everything advertised was included.
This is a fine light in quality, generated light and size. I've had no problem with it at all since I purchased it.
I use this light just about everyday.
I am satisfied with this purchase.
I would recommend it for all of the above.

3 of 5 nitecore flashlight June 3, 2020
Reviewer: DAVID FANG from SAN LEANDRO, CA United States  
nitecore flashlight becomes hot when on for several minutes. There was also no tracking available to see when the package was coming and came out of nowhere. This is mediocre. There was a flashlight i had before that i do not remember that did not become too hot when on for a long time..

3 of 5 PurchasinNitecore g the product online December 23, 2019
Reviewer: Eva Simonsen from Cranford, NJ United States  
Hi. The experience was pretty straightforward, thank you.
You might want to think about making it really easy for a customer to purchase add-ons. For example, you suggested the flashlight I purchased should have a battery. When I clicked on that suggestion, it was not an active link. I don't have the time to go looking for the correct battery, so didn't include it in my order, though I would have if it had been easier.
