The Nebo 12K is a powerful rechargeable torch with an intensely bright output of 12000 lumens on the turbo setting, which can be activated for 30 seconds at a time to provide boosts of powerful light.
For constant use the high setting offers a maximum of 7000 lumens output and there are also mid and low brightness levels, as well as a strobe output to choose from. All outputs are controlled with the single side button, which also features a battery power indicator underneath that will glow orange when the battery level is over 25% and will turn flash orange every second when the battery levels drops below 25% to remind you to charge the battery.
The torch is turned on with a single press and will cycle through high, mid, low and off with each press. The turbo is accessed by holding down the button down while the light is turned on, and it will stay on for 30 seconds before returning to the previous state, or alternatively you can press the button once to exit the turbo before the 30 seconds has elapsed.
To activate strobe quickly double press the button in any state and single press to exit it again. If left in low, mid or high for longer than 8 seconds the next press will turn the light off rather than cycling to the next mode. The last used brightness output, except turbo and strobe, will be remembered the next time the torch is turned on if it was left in that mode for 8 seconds before being turned off.
Sometimes the highest output may not be required, so for that reason the 12K has a direct to low feature which is achieved by holding the button for 2 seconds from off and the torch will then come on in low and then cycle to mid then to high.
Smart Power Control technology will gradually increase the light when the torch is turned on or when changing between modes, allowing the users eyes to adjust to the brightness change more easily and also to reduce the power consumption of the torch.
The torch is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack (2 x 26650 cells in a single battery sleeve) which is charged inside the torch via the USB-C charging port located on the neck of the torch, and is revealed by lifting the dust cover. Simply plug the included cable into the USB-C port at one end and plug the other end into a USB power source. The charging indicator in the switch will flash green while charging is in progress and turn solid green once charging is complete.
The 12K also has a standard USB port so that it can be used as a power bank to charge devices such as a mobile phone. When a device is connected, the indicator in the switch will go orange to confirm that the power bank function is actively charging the device. The torch can also still be used while charging an external device, however turbo cannot be used and will come on as high instead.
With an ingress protection rating of IP67, the 12K is fully dust resistant and is waterproof up to 1 metres depth for 30 minutes. The 2x zoom allows you to focus the torch from spot to flood by twisting the head, offering great all-round illumination and making it perfect for searching or scanning large areas.
