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!

First "real" light...Thing is amazing!

Holy cow, it's bright! Love that it remembers the last setting it was on when you turn it off... Tail stand ability is great. I attached a tritium fob to mine and never leave home without it now! 10/10
Pros:
Rock Solid Bright Lots of Modes and Functions Lasts forever on my Sony VCT5 batteries.

Awesome!
January 23, 2015
Great little EDC light. Actually a little smaller than I thought it would be, but I like the size. Fit and finish is flawless.4 brightness modes and secret strobe modes that can be activated by holding the side switch. Very bright little light!
Pros:
Two switches, a tail clicky to turn the light on,and a side switch to cycle through the modes. Super bright for a small light! Side switch blinks blue when pressed together with tail switch to give you the battery voltage. IE, 4 blinks and a pause then one blink would be 4.1 V pretty clever.
Cons:
Tail clicky is pretty firm. Not a big deal though.

Excellent flashlight
January 12, 2015
I love this new Nitecore P12 2015 edition! I have had many Surefire flashlights of a similar size and design, but this product has all the best features. I experiment by buying the very inexpensive 1000 lumen drop-in replacement bulbs from China. Sometimes they work, sometimes not so well. I would never carry a flashlight on a trip with one of these cheap bulbs. Just when you need it, it doesn't work. You can unscrew the inexpensive bulb and put it back in and it may or may not work. The P12 2015 edition always works perfectly and stays on the light mode you want. Some other flashlight need to cycle through all the modes to get back where you want it. A big pain in the butt. The other inexpensive bulbs claim 1,000 lumens and the P12 is a little bit brighter. My favorite small flashlight which has 1,000 lumens on high, but 520 hour rating on the 1 lumen setting plus all the other modes. Highly recommended. Craig in Los Angeles

Great Value for the money
January 11, 2015
I was looking for a good, reliable, and very bright flashlight but really wasn't in the mood to pay a ridiculous amount of money. I saw this one on sale and given the features advertised, the price looked right. I'm very glad I purchased this light. It was well worth the money. It's built well and is extremely bright. I'm going to buy more.
Pros:
Value for the money.

Small-N-Bright
January 9, 2015
Have the EA41/SRT7 and this one. This one will be attached to my xbow due to it being the smallest of the 3 and, brightness between the 3 is really splitting hairs for my intended use of this item. This is the outdoors-mans high end flashlight model to own. imho
Pros:
Small mag light size but 50x the light.
Cons:
It gets hot if you leave it in turbo for extended time.

Can't get better than this.
January 8, 2015
Thoroughly awesome light. I gave one to my son who's a chopper pilot and he loves it , so I had to get another one for myself. I used to, back in the day, just get the mag light incandescent flashlights and I came here one day just to find weird sized batteries since I didn't want to pay $8 for a tiny watch battery. I was just browsing the flashlights and discovered this entirely new world of these LED flashlights that blow the old style 'rodney king' flashlights away. This one is the best bang for your buck by far.
Pros:
Bright, adjustable , small, comes with spare parts
Cons:
none

Further Improvement
January 6, 2015
I have used the new P12 for only a few days, however, it's switching appears smarter for my use....than say the EC20. It's much harder to turn on accidently than flashlights like the EC20 & some others. Also, the side-swich selects the strobe mode in any side-switch position which is helpful in emergencies.
Pros:
Switching

Quality at the right price
January 5, 2015
1000 lumens, well I have no idea if it is true but it seems brighter than my 800 and 900 lumen lights. This flashlight has a lot to offer. Nitecore quality has surprised me as the construction and durability seem on par with my surefire lights but a much less the cost. The beam is nice, white, wide, and bright. Heck its brighter than my head lights and the spot lights on the side of my house. I'm not a big fan of the side button (little hard to locate in a pinch) but easy enough to use and get the feel. The clip just snaps on and therefore just snaps off. Takes a bit of force but might make for a situation where you go for your light and find it was snagged and all you have is a clip left. Check the battery chamber for a desiccant packet before popping your first battery in or you are liable to get those darn little balls all over the place while coming up with a creative way to remove the rest of the bag.
Pros:
Good quality Water proof Uses 18650 and CR123/SR123 batteries probably more very bright Fairly wide beam
Cons:
attachable clip easily detached

Bright, Simple, and Versatile
January 1, 2015
I bought this light and a similar Fenix PD35 2014 edition around the same time. They are similar size and brightness (the Fenix is 960 lumens). This light is cheaper than the Fenix and will stand on its end. I'm not sure I'll ever need to stand it on end but I like the feature.
Pros:
Price, brightness, stands on end, tail cap push button on-off with side selector switch
Cons:
None so far.

Bright light for its size!
December 29, 2014
Sturdy construction but could be built tougher for drops and knocks. Very good light output for its small size. Almost compact enough to carry in your pocket. Brought two of these to ship oversees to my in-laws for occasional power outages. Will be buying additional lights from Nitecore for myself and friends.
Pros:
Ease of use!
Cons:
Make it stronger for drops and knocks!

Only works with CR123 batteries
December 24, 2014
Works fine with CR123 batteries but will not work with the 18650,this battery came out of my fenix pd35.and yes it was a fully charged 18650
Pros:
seems to be a good light overall, just disappointed that the 18650 rechargeable won't work in it.

Don't Drop It
December 20, 2014
I'm a Police Officer in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and I purchased this light when I switched to night shift. The simplicity, functionality, and brightness of the light was great, and I like the 18650 rechargeable batteries. One night (about 1 month after I bought it) while changing a flat tire, I knocked the light out of its holster and it fell from my duty belt to the pavement and broke. I couldn't see anything physically wrong with it but it would not come on after that. Battery Junction was great and took it back with no problem and refunded my money. I picked up a Jetbeam instead and have not had any problems with it. This light would be ok for EDC for a business person or someone who's not going to bang it around, but not for serious duty. Bottom line: if a light can't handle being dropped, I don't want it.
Pros:
Simple and convenient operation, size, brightness
Cons:
Too fragile for duty use

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
