FEATURES

FOUR BRIGHTNESS LEVELS

Adapt to any situation


The Nitecore P12 features four output modes with setting designed to be ideal in its own way. The 1000 lumen high mode is bright enough for searching fields and vast expanses outdoors. The 210 lumen all-purpose mode is perfect for indoor and close-quarters use. Additionally, the P12 functions as a comfortable reading light with the 50 lumen low mode, or as a middle-of-the-night light with a 1 lumen firefly mode. These are just some examples of what this versatile light can handle with Nitecore's ingenious brightness scaling.


THE NEWEST TECH

The future is here


Using the newest CREE LED technology, the XM-L2, this flashlight achieves what was thought to be impossible - incredible output AND impressive runtimes up to 520 hours! The P12 also features next generation Precision Digital Optics Technology combined with Crystal Coating Technology to provide extreme reflector performance - achieving up to a 222 meter throw distance!


COMPACT & PORTABLE

Take it anywhere


The compact design fits comfortably in your pocket, backpack, belt holster, or anywhere else you keep your light. With advanced technology making devices smaller, Nitecore has been able to make the P12 not much bigger than the battery that powers it! At 5.47" long, it can take one 18650 or two CR123A batteries.


TWO BUTTON INTERFACE

Perfectly simple


The P12 just makes sense - turn the light on/off with the tail switch and change modes with the side switch. With a simple interface, there is no possibility of getting the wrong mode when you need it the most. Additionally, the side switch features a LED status indicator, warning you to replace or recharge your batteries when necessary.


EXCELLENT CRAFTSMANSHIP

Powerful & Reliable


Constructed from aerospace grade aluminum with military grade HAIII hard-anodized finish, this flashlight is sure to last you a long time. The rugged construction allows this light to withstand drops up to 2 meters with ease. Additionally, the P12 employs silicone o-rings to achieve an IPX-8 water resistance so you don't have to worry about getting wet since this light can be submerged!

A great "bang-for-the-buck" flashlight!
December 16, 2014
After researching the "best 1x18650 flashlight" for days, I ended up buying the Nitecore P12 to replace my JetBeam BC40. While the BC40 is a great light for what it does, I wanted a smaller, shorter light that was also in the 1000 lumen range. For my needs, the PC12 is perfect!
Pros:
1000 lumens 4 light settings (1000, 240, 70 and 1 lumen) Strobe, SOS and Becon 1x18650 small size nice case & accessories
Cons:
None at this time

Excellent value
December 11, 2014
Very good price for a full featured light. Excellent brightness, clean design, reasonable size. Not too big to be an EDC light but enough power for almost every situation. I also like the "moonlight" setting. Having a low power option is almost as important to me as the high lumen output. I have become a real Nitecore fan in the last year. Fifteen years ago I do not think many of us saw the amazing quality and features coming to hand held lights.
Pros:
High power output And a very low output option Solid construction fits the hand well. Light weight, good balance. Good price to quality
Cons:
Some may find the rear on button to be slightly stiff, Others will be fine with it.

Fantabulous Flashlight that everyone should own
December 10, 2014
I have two of these flashlights now. They are my number one "go-to flashlight" for camping, around home use, and for my bug-out bag. I especially like the 1 lumen light for navigating my dark house in the early morning. You really can't go wrong with this torch. There are other great lights out there but Nitecore really nailed the feature set on this one. I will be buying two more for my kids in the very near future.

Super flashlight
December 10, 2014
Nice little flashlight, comes with lanyard, holster, tactical ring, spare tail cap, and two spare O rings. Throws a nice beam for a small light but I'm not sure it's 1,000 lumens as advertised. Can be used with rechargeable 18650 batteries or CR123 batteries.
Pros:
Compact, can be used with rechargeable or regular CR123 batteries. Comes with holster, spare O rings, lanyard, spare tail cap, and clip. Turn on/off via tail button switch and has a nice handle based switch to go from low to medium to high beams easily.
Cons:
Doesn't seem to be 1,000 lumens but it's a good beam of light for such a small flashlight.

All the modes, none of the hassle
December 10, 2014
This light is great. The light settings are easy to access, no turning a head and clicking this and that. Just turn it on, push the button and access the light modes. The top mode is super bright. I have not used the "test" feature yet.
Pros:
Mode access, low and high settings.
Cons:
The sheath, it is terrible, not worth using. Buy a Maxpedition 5" light sheath, it will serve you much better than the one provided.

Smart Design
December 9, 2014
This product is not only bright and reliable, its functional design is brilliant. The momentary on/off tactical switch is precisely how I want my light to work; and the separate Mode switch provides the variable lighting levels without interfering with the on/off switch through its independent operation. Other lights use the on/off switch to move between modes by momentary tapping of the switch, which can be accidentally done when using the light in a momentary off/on fashion. Separating the mode function and on/off functions is brilliant and works beautifully.
Pros:
bright reliable smart functionality
Cons:
limited maximum brightness duration due to intentional dimming for overheating protection caused by the limited heat dissipation of the small form factor

Amazing power and features.
December 9, 2014
This light is so small the head is the same size as the body tube. It fits in ones pocket with no head bulge. Low power is Moonlight for privacy. The center of the beam is concentrated and with 1000 lm its throw is amazing. Press the tail and side switches together and the side switch blinks out the remaining voltage to the nearest tenth of a volt so you don't have to take the battery out to check it. The switch even flashes on its own when the power is very low. I specifically ordered this light because it had a tail cap switch for use with a handgun and was pleased to find that the strobe has memory, even with a partial press. Wow for anyone that wants this for defense. I bought mine on sale or should I say it was a steal and worth every penny.

Powerful Little Light
December 4, 2014
I have a number of similar flashlights, but this is the only one that has a side button besides a tail cap. I like the added functionality you get from this configuration, not to mention that the light is incredibly bright for its size. There are many modes, including four light levels (one of which can be memorized as the default when turned on), a strobe, SOS and one that I have never had, an emergency beacon, which is an intermittent momentary bright pulse. Many of my other lights require turning the front part of the barrel to change modes. I am hoping that despite the two-button operation the light is durable and dependable. For the money, this is one very good general purpose light.
Pros:
Extremely bright at highest setting Some will love the side button operation besides the tail cap Multiple modes Compact
Cons:
Tail cap must be pressed before side button can be used to cycle through modes and after use to turn off

Awesome little light
November 25, 2014
I have owned numerous Surefire lights and decided to take a chance on a "cheaper" light. Man am I glad that I did. This light is simply amazing. The 4 light levels along with the 1000 lumens make for an outstanding flashlight. I have already made up my mind that seem of my family will be getting these for Christmas.
Pros:
1000 lumens 4 different output levels Battery strength indicator light. Very durable Great price
Cons:
None

Can you say BRIGHT
November 20, 2014
I've had this flashlight just a few days so I cannot attest to things like battery life. What I can say the the quality of the flashlight is high, it fits in the palm of your hand and the 4 light levels should allow extended battery life unless you run it on the highest setting. But if you need all those lumens...well, it is bright! Now looking at other Nightcore flashlights.
Pros:
size, different light levels including strobe,SOS, and beacon
Cons:
none yet

Fantastic everyday carry!
November 14, 2014
I have been a verified flashlight snob/nerd for the past 30 years and find the P12 to be an awesome all around winner. The wide range of modes from a single lumen to 1,000 lumens covers virtually any need, short of maybe search and rescue. (Frankly, I'm fascinated by the moonlight mood for some odd reason. It's incredibly useful at the bedside table and the faint purple tinge as it glows around the bezel is mesmerizing to look at. Told you I was a nerd.) As the owner of a small hardwood floor business and having always been a bit of a handyman, I easily find myself using it a dozen times a day. So if anyone ever asks why I carry such a serious flashlight all the time, they better be ready to sit down and hear me out. The slim size, lack of a wider head, and quality of the holster, makes it easy to slip on your belt and forget it's there until you need it. The rear clicky switch has a solid feel and the side mode switch gives freedom to select and memorize the last mode used for next time. I love that it can take both the rechargeable 18650's as well as the 123's, and went ahead and bought a charger and a couple of the Olight 3400mah batteries to give me some extended use for mountain biking and hiking. The voltage check mode is easy to use and literally lets you know where you are to a tenth of a volt, brilliant! For the price, this unit is in a class by itself and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Pocket Sunlight
November 9, 2014
I purchased this first on one of the regular, awesome flash sales that Battery Junction does here and there and it might just have been an impulse purchase. Even though I am happy with it, I seem to like its lower powered sibling, the P10 having a bit more simplified operation with a dedicated strobe button. This P12 has a side switch that also acts as a battery indicator in response to a series of push button procedures that you can figure and follow to indicate power reserve for your source. It does not have a dedicated strobe function like the less inexpensive and lesser output P10, which makes up a small upside trade as it does offer a 1 watt function that can be used for longer periods as a night light for a weekend of camping or for anything that can use a firefly mode of some sort. It is well built rivaling its more expensive domestic US made counterparts and gone are the days of those cheapo, breaks in one day, kind of chicom, rimpac products.
Pros:
Bright, pocket sunlight EDC, side battery reserve indicator, pocket clip and 1 watt function.
Cons:
No dedicated strobe button and non crenulated head which is not a big deal at all.

Very little difference in out put from the P12. Out of the box the light over heated to the point you could not hold it. Also, it didn't seem to switch through different modes as easy as the P12.
Cons:
light overheated

A lot of bang for the buck!
November 6, 2014
I've been looking at Nitecore' for a while now, and when I saw this promo, I decided to pull-the-plug, so to speak. My initial expression about this brand is a very high-quality item, with great attention to ergonomics. All the controls are conveniently located, and operation is pretty much straight-forward. Unit is supplied with a decent holster for belt-ware, and the obligatory lanyard/o-ring/rubber tailcap parts. Nitecore's lumen ratings are a little over-stated by about 60, but this is insignificant to my purposes as an EDC light. Posted information about this light, and it's purchase on the 'tactical forum' that I frequent.
Pros:
As stated above, great ergonomics. Torch is not too big, or too small. Easy carry on belt, jacket, shirt-pocket, or in mil-spec pants. Should work great as a 'weapons light' with the right mount. It's self-evident, the 'flashlight' is manufactured under high Q/C standards, and very easy to understand instructions. This would be a great tool for IT/Telephony technicians who often find themselves in dark closets, or where lighting is poor behind cabinets, and furniture. I have slightly larger hands, and the torch feels like it was custom-made, and delivers no 'hot-spots' when gripping it.
Cons:
I felt the 'pocket clip' could be a little more stronger, other than that, no additional gripes, or qualms with this torch.

Another Winner from Nitecore!
November 5, 2014
Great LED flashLight runs on the popular 18650 Li-ion rechargeable battery. The PC20 is another NiteCore winner that's about the same sIze as the P12.
Pros:
Four brightness settings Lightweight One inch diameter About five inches long -- fits in your hand Two switches - one for setting brightness, one for ON and OFF The list is endless, like all other Nitecore flashlights
Cons:
Cannot think of any.

September 14, 2014
This little thing packs an unbelievable punch! When I showed my next door neighbor how bright it was, he ordered one for himself. It looks like a little light saber! This little light is the brightest one I've seen yet for an LED light. It rivals anything out there for its size.
Pros:
The machining is outstanding on this flashlight. It's a real work of art.
