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!

Nitecore P12
July 1, 2015
A very bright and handy flashlight. Would be much more useful if it had a small beam magnifier option for longer distances. A little awkward to use at first, but after getting used to the on-off switch and the mode switch it is a great light.

2015 Nitecore P12
June 19, 2015
The mode switch on side and tailpiece on off is much more user friendly than the side switch only. All modes work great and easily switched between. The 2015 version with the battery level check is a nice feature.

Must Have EDC
June 11, 2015
Just like all the reviews, highly must have. This is my go-to light. Carried it clipped inside pant pocket and don't even feel it's there. Sometimes it's too bright. Low setting is great for reading tags and labels, so it doesn't blind you. High setting is great for looking at something far. It's even brighter with Nitecore 18650 rechargeable battery.
Pros:
Everything about this flashlight
Cons:
Didn't find any...

A Nice and Bright Light
June 4, 2015
This light is bright at the Max 1000 Lumens. It comes with a variety of accessories and parts such a belt/pocket clip, lanyard, anti-roll / grip ring, extra 'O' ring, extra Button rubber seal. The four (4) settings of light output are adequate with the lowest being being quite 'dim.' The light output is quite 'white' in 'color' and the 'throw distance' for illumination is more than adequate. I have four (4) Fenix lights and this comes a close 'second' if not tied with most all of them.
Pros:
Extra parts and accessories. Bright.
Cons:
A bit 'oily' upon receipt around the battery tube access cap. Lanyard cord is a bit thin connecting to light base.

Fantastic light!
April 25, 2015
Love the 4 levels of brightness as well as the strobe, SOS, and beacon functions. Perfect size for EDC and the sheath and lanyard are great extras for the price. The 1000 lumen strobe function should be an awesome 'weapon' to disable attacker if ever needed.
Pros:
Size, brightness levels, operating options (strobe, SOS, beacon), sheath, lanyard, and spare O rings and cap for on/off switch.

Well made
April 22, 2015
Bought this for my son for his first high quality light, could tell it was well made just from opening the tail and loading the batteries (careful to remove the silica pack first), love the tail on-off with power level on the side, also remembers which level it was at when turned off then back on.
Pros:
nice size and brightness levels
Cons:

Excellent light - typical for Nitecore
April 18, 2015
I have several Nitecore lights and this one is a highlight. It has all the power and options that have been the hallmarks of Nitecore. It came with all the parts and clear instructions. Couldn't wait to operate but the output still blew me away. Especially like the 1 lumen "moonlite" beam - just right for middle of the night. Thanks.

Very good torch
March 31, 2015
I like this light for several reasons. Its slim design makes it more edc than those with a wider head. (I also have the P16. See P16 reviews.) The P12 comes with a holster, clip and grip ring, whereas the EC20 does not. (I have the EC20 too. See EC20 review.) Although the P12 is very bright at 1,000 lumens, I feel the P16 at 960 lumens is brighter. Keep in mind, the P16 has a wider head and is a better thrower. Nitecore's feature of the mode switch also being a battery power indicator is very useful to have. The side-mounted mode switch is firm enough where you don't find yourself accidentally changing levels just by touching it. Overall build is very good, as is expected in Nitecore torches.

One versitile every day carry.
March 31, 2015
Sometimes I would like a little more power than the Nitecore P20, but still maintain a low pocket profile. The P12 gives 200 extra lumens on the top end, throwing out 1000 lumens with strobe and S.O.S. modes.
Pros:
The P12 power options of 1000, 270, 70, and 1 lumen with on / off tail switch and side mounted mode switch.
Cons:
About .5 inches longer than P20

March 14, 2015
This flashlight fits in your hand, has good features and is extremely bright on its most powerful setting. It only can b\e used on that setting for a short time, due to the heat it generates. I really enjoy the ability to have a soft light as well as a very powerful searching beam.
Pros:
Stands upright. Powerful, excellent beam pattern

Nitecore P-12 2015 edition
February 18, 2015
Here it goes, Of course when I ordered this I was so excited to get it, I was like a kid waiting for Christmas. You flashaholics know that feeling! I read every single review on this site. Come down to it, it just seemed to be a solid light with a pretty great review status. So I finally get in the mail! ( Battery Junction Was Great By the way with fast shipping) Rip the box open look at the instructions quickly to make sure there is nothing I need to do special before I put batteries in and fire it up. Then I remembered an important tip from a review on here, TAKE OUT THE DESICCANT PACK IN THE LIGHT BODY. I thought no problem, grabbed my long narrow hemos and grabbed it, when i went to gently pull up i only came up with small pieces. The desiccant pack had an adhesive on it and was stuffed so far down the tube it was packed tight in there. OK kinda frustrating, but got it cleaned out, no prob. Its time to to put in my fully charged 18650. Yes, finally I put the tail cap on, hold it in my hand, wait for it, wait for it, AAANNNDD , Nothing! OK I thought. It has to be the battery, not all batteries work perfectly in every device. I tried an Efest in there, nothing, tried some brand new CR123's, nothing. Cleaned the contact on the light with some pro electrical contact cleaner, nothing. I worked on it for over an hour. OK at that point it was painfully clear it had to just plain be D.O.A unit . With a tear in my eye, I packed it back up to send in for an exchange. So I get the boxe all packed up, the right papers, taped all up. Then I went online and looked at other reviews for this light on other web sites. I just couldn't give up. And i'm glad i didn't. There it was tons of different reviews with one thing in common , DOA units. And the solution! THIS LIGHT HAS 2 PARTS OF THE TUBE that come apart.! And tons of reviews said if you just take off and tighten the middle(head end) section it works great, they just don't tighten them down at the factory.I did not even know that this light had un-screwable sections other than the tail cap. Could it really be that easy? I ripped open my box again, took it out, and sure enough, they unscrew! Took it off re-tightened, put in battery, tightened the tail cap and clicked it on. I think i heard Angels sing when the light poured out of this unit Yes! It was beautiful! Oh and another thing, when you get yours, unscrew the sections first and that pesky little desiccant pack, well that makes it a whole lot easier to get. The light works great , all functions, great light output, very bright. switch and buttons worked fine. On the durability, well that's to be determined, I also read a lot of reviews other places that said a small 12 inch drop will make it a $60 paperweight real quick? So anyway, I do love the light. You will be amazed at the quality of light this thing produces. But Please !!! If you get one, unscrew both sections, take out desiccant pack,re-tighten both sections, put in battery, and ENJOY !!!!!
Pros:
Very bright , very compact , ease of use, cycle options
Cons:
High or Turbo Mode only stays on for 2 minutes. Nowhere does it warn of retightening Both sections for possible contact problems.

Fantastic Flashlight
February 6, 2015
Have some experience with other brands of high output flashlights (all great), the Nitecore P12 performed better! Better light throw, beam pattern and intensity. Even in low light situations the light from this flashlight was bright and strong. Very easy to adjust between levels. Standing in the rain did not affect the operation at all. The flashlight body is narrow enough to fit just about any of the narrow belt holders. I've found the included nylon holder has a tight body where you don't have to use the velcro'd strap to secure the flashlight from falling out during normal crawling and climbing. The construction appears to be capable of withstanding the normal wear and tear of daily use.
Pros:
light output size beam pattern operation
Cons:
none noted

Good carry, but the switch ?
January 27, 2015
I have found this to be an excellent carry when doing my rounds at the local church. However, the tail switch sometimes does not function correctly. I've needed to twist the body to get a solid connection. I suspect it is the formation of AlOx in the thread areas of the package or perhaps the anodize in the thread area that needs to be shielded during the anodize process. This same area could be e-Beam sputtered with copper to solve both or either of these problems. Still it's a solid carry in a very powerful package.
Pros:
solid small package. very powerful.
Cons:
Tail switch intermittent.

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.
