Nitecore P12GT

An Astounding Lumen Output

Nitecore is proud to debut its brand-new flashlight, the P12GT, which features a quality white CREE XP-L HI V3 LED bulb as its light source. There is a powerful lumen output on the P12GT of 1000 lumens on high, using one 18650 rechargeable lithium-ion battery; a middle setting of 280 lumens; 55 lumens on low; and an ultra-low mode of 1 lumen. The burn rates for this flashlight are: 1h on high; 5h 15 min. for the middle mode; 28h for low; and 520h for the ultra-low mode. The peak beam intensity/Candela rate of the P12GT is a very impressive 33,700cd, and the beam/throw distance is an extensive 320m. Besides these strong lumen outputs, the P12GT is packed with other modes, such as a location beacon, an SOS, and a strobe.

Performs Brilliantly, Even When Wet

The Nitecore P12GT has thermal heat fins on its body that are part of its advanced temperature regulation (ATR) technology design; this system allows heat to filter away from the flashlight, so it can stay at a moderate temperature. The lens is tempered mineral glass that has an anti-reflective varnish; the mineral glass material renders the lens enormously clear and the coating causes the lens' possible reflection to be greatly reduced. The smooth-style reflector has Nitecore's exclusive crystal coating technology, together with the company's precision digital optics technology; this means that the reflector is optimized for the best and most efficient operation possible. The P12GT is built with aircraft-grade aluminum alloy that contains an HAIII military-grade hard-anodized coating. Your new Nitecore light is IPX-rated at level 8, so the P12GT can be soaked in water up to two meters and will still perform brilliantly in your hands. The impact resistance of this flashlight is 1.5m.

Regulation Circuit Furnishes a Constant and Reliable Beam

A certain unique feature is available on the P12GT, that of the flashlight recalling its previous setting in regards to the device's brightness level. This is sure to be very convenient when you're in a hurry and you want the setting that you had before. The P12GT also contains reverse polarity protection, so your batteries and your flashlight will receive no damage if improperly inserted. There is a circuit board on the P12GT which allows the light to shine continuously for around 520h. The power switch is to be found on the side of the P12GT and is multi-functional: it can inform the user of battery voltage and power levels very clearly and capably by lighting up. This power switch lets the user manage the P12GT single-handedly. A regulation circuit within the flashlight furnishes the user with a constant and reliable beam. The P12GT has a pocket clip that is titanium-plated stainless steel and has an advantageous two-way function. The tailcap on the P12GT is flat, so the light can stand all by itself; the user will most likely get a lot of enjoyment from such a sight. The Nitecore P12GT comes with Nitecore's standard five-year warranty and also a 60-month free repair period. This item is part of a new generation of Nitecore flashlights that will astound you with its lumen output and its remarkable smooth reflector technology!

If you own a p12 you won't believe the difference at the same voltage!! now if they did the same thing to the p25 smiladon
November 16, 2016
Marsha at battery told me the difference but until I tried the p12 at the same voltage 4.0 volts at a gun show I couldn't believe how much more throw & the p12gt was and had to order one from battery junction. I had a switch problem with a p25 smiladon & called battery junction & they said send it in and they replaced it , you won't get that kind of service from ebay or amazon. IF you sign for their emails nobody is gonna beat their prices!! AAA+++
Prosall of the above, good folks to do business with

Nitecore P12GT Flashlight with CREE XP-L HI V3 LED 1000 Lumens
July 20, 2016
This bright and well crafted light would have been my one primary choice as part of my duty gear when I served as a law enforcement officer with the Department of Homeland Security for ten years from 1999 to 2008. Practical,and easy to carry with the law enforcement/military personnel in mind. Clean spot/focus bright led light. Again well received by me through their special care, my dear friends in Battery Junction, This one was recommended by one of their fine staff team members, Thank you again for your outstanding care. I am also grateful to the rest of this great team and management as well in Battery Junction for your expert and most excellent care/ best product selection too. Definitely do recommend this Nitecore P12GT and always with the professional care by Battery Junction's team.
ProsEasy to carry with very bright led light, suggested carry for law enforcement officers. What I value most importantly is the professional caring support with Battery Junction's team and management.

Great Upgrade To The P12 (2015)
October 31, 2018
I have owned the P12 (2015) since it first came out. It is a great light and has not let me down.
I have recently been wanting something with more throw and a tighter spot. Liking the quality and reliability of Nitecore, I ordered the P12GT. I am very pleased with the GT. Tremendous throw and illumination and all with the quality, features and form factor of the original P12. I feed it Nitecore 18650's and always know I have a light cannon that is going to work when I need it.

Solid Quality
December 23, 2017
The usual Nitecore build quality...Excellent. Just a solid performer. Makes my EC20 seem rather mundane.
ProsUse 3500 mAh cells for best performance.

Great little light
November 29, 2017
I lost my original P12GT, but I liked it so much that I just ordered a new one. I had my old one for 15 months, used mostly for my EMS night shift, and have to say this is an impressive light. It has enough features to keep me happy and packs a punch for the size and price. The lower two outputs are great for use as a penlight. There is quite a lot of competition from more well-known brands, but Nitecore has surely made a name for themselves. One downside, as mentioned, is that the high power tends to oversaturate, but that is to be expected. Same thing with the heat emission on the brightest mode. All in all, I love the P12GT and bought the accompanying lanyard made by Nitecore, so I (hopefully) won't lose this one too.
ProsBrightness (1000 lumens) 4 Brightness settings + Strobe & SOS Sturdy clip and included accessories Build quality Great throw distance
ConsHeat from max brightness Black finish scratches fairly easy
