The Nitecore P12 redefines what is possible from a compact every day carry torch that is small enough to fit into a pocket.

With a maximum output of 950 lumens from the Cree XM-L2 T6 LED and a range of up to 222 metres, the P12 outperforms every other light in its class with ease while adding many unique and innovative features.

The side switch allows users to select the desired brightness level as well as activating the strobe, SOS and beacon modes. The switch also acts as a power indicator that will blink once every two seconds when battery level drops to 50% and blink rapidly when power levels are low (with the light switched on). With the light switched off pressing the side and tail switch simultaneously will display the battery voltage.

Thanks to the 1 inch diameter body, the P12 is compatible with various accessories including the Nitecore RS1 Remote Switch and most weapon mounting systems further adding to the versatility of this pocket rocket!

Very bright, lost my old surefire torch which was a couple of years old, this P12 is far brighter (due to better led's they now have) Dropped one point as the P12 start's in the last position it was left in, I would have liked the ability to start either very high, or very low, depending on what the situation needed, can't fault the quality, or torch direct for the speedy delivery (less than 24 hrs), also etching standard is first class, & recommended.

Was not aware of the Nitecore torches, have had a lot of Maglites. However, an amazing torch which puts out a lot of light when you need it. The variable settings are very useful, use it on lower ones a lot. Looks well built and expect it to last well. Would not hesitate to reccommend it.

Better spec than the similar Fenix PD35 e.g. memory for strobe giving instant access to this function in emergency; also beacon and SOS modes and incredibly bright 950 lumens setting. Only lack is a high mode of perhaps 400 lumens, although in everyday use 210 is sufficient. Good quality item which packs a great deal into an easily pocketable device. Excellent service from Torch Direct: fast delivery and kept fully informed along the way.

Fantastic torch, exceeded my expectations. Fantastic service and super fast delivery. Highly recommended

Amazing for its size
Tuesday, 28 January 2014  | 

I couldn't decide between this torch and the Fenix PD35, as they seemed very similar.

In the end I went for this one based on the fact it can tailstand, has a 1 lumen low mode and a battery level indicator - plus the extra 100 lumens in its brightest mode.

I actually prefer the style of the Fenix but it's a matter of personal taste I guess.

Don't forget that on high it'll only run for less than five minutes before it reduces brightness to stop it overheating - I think if you want something capable of running that bright for longer periods you'd need to buy a bigger model that can radiate the heat over a greater surface area.

Given that it feels about the same size as the 2AA Maglite I had years ago this thing is amazing and I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Was weighing this up with the fenix PD35 and went for the P12. There's probably not much between them, arguably Nitecore took the PD35 and just made it a little bit better, but I'm happy with my choice.

1st time I've used the site and no complaints. Used free standard delivery and was here in a few days. Without any issues(obviously a good thing!) it's hard to judge customer service but would recommend them to friends.
