The Nitecore MH12S is a high power rechargeable LED torch which includes a 5000mAh 21700 Li-ion battery (NL2150), which charges inside the light with the supplied USB-C lead.
Featuring a Luminus SST-40-W LED with a maximum output of 1800 lumens and range of up to 294 meters, the MH12S packs a big punch into a small package that can easily be used as an everyday carry (EDC) light. The MH12S is shorter than both the MH12 V2 and MH12GTS that came before it.
In addition to the 21700 battery included with the MH12S, it can also be powered by 18650 Li-ion or CR123A primary cells, which are available separately.
The MH12S includes the Nitecore NTH10 Tactical Holster as well as a removable pocket clip and wrist lanyard. It is also compatible with a range of Nitecore accessories including the RSW3 Remote Switch.
Operated via a tactical tail switch with momentary-on function and a user friendly metal side switch to change brightness level. The switch also features a blue power indicator light that displays the battery voltage as a series of flashes. The MH12S can be set in one of two modes depending on which suits the users requirements best:
Daily Mode: Turbo, High, Med, Low, Ultra-Low, Strobe, Beacon & SOS
Tactical Mode: Turbo, High, Mid, Low, Ultra-Low & Strobe
Brightness Levels, Runtime and Range
Turbo: 1800 Lumens - 45 minutes* - 294 meters
High: 1050 Lumens - 3 hours 15 minutes - 219 meters
Medium: 300 Lumens - 7 hours 15 minutes - 122 meters
Low: 50 Lumens - 45 hours - 49 meters
Ultra Low: 1 Lumen - 1500 hours - 7 meters
Strobe / Beacon / SOS: 1800 Lumens
* The runtime of Turbo is cumulative without temperature regulation
Memory function remembers the last mode used so when the torch is turned back on it will automatically access the previous used brightness level or strobe / flashing mode. Please note that memory function of every setting is only available in daily mode, and in tactical mode it will only memorise turbo or strobe.
Advanced Temperature Regulation (ATR) regulates the output of the MH12S according to ambient temperature to protect the LED and maintain optimum performance.
Water resistant to IP68 - 2 meter submersible and impact resistant to drops from 1 meter in height.

I have a number of lights with varying specifications. But this is a significant upgrade. As usual, the quality and feel of the light exceeds expectations. - As does the service from Flashaholics.
