The Nitecore MH1C is a compact rechargeable torch with a maximum output of 550 lumen from the Cree XM-L2 U2 white LED.

Powered by a the included rechargeable 16340 (RCR123A) lithium-ion battery, the MH1C has the ability to charge the battery inside the torch. Firstly ensure the torch is turned ON, then plug the supplied charging lead into the micro USB port, which is revealed by unscrewing the middle section of the torch that covers the port, and the other end into a computer or a USB mains / car charger.

The red charging indicator light will blink twice every 2 seconds to show charging is in progress and will go solid red once charging is complete after approximately 2 hours. If the torch is not on or a problem is detected the red light will flash rapidly.

Alternatively the MH1C can be powered by a CR123A non-rechargeable lithium cell, however this battery type can NOT be charged within the torch.

Four brightness levels plus strobe and SOS flashing modes are available, accessible through either the Turbo or user defined mode. The turbo mode is achieved by fully tightening the head and can then be momentarily accessed with a half press of the button, or turned on constantly by fully pressing the tail cap button. After 3 minutes use in turbo the output will drop to prevent the torch from overheating in order to protect the LED.

User defined mode is accessed by loosening the head slightly, and half presses of the tail cap switch will then allow the modes to be cycled through in the order of high, mid, low, SOS, strobe. To select the output simply fully press the button in when on the required setting and this mode will then me memorised each time the tail is fully turned on and off until you change it with the half presses.

With the desired user defined mode selected, you can then easily change between turbo and the selected mode by tightening and loosening the head, which can be useful in many situations. For example in tactical use you may select the strobe output and you can then quickly go between turbo and strobe for when instant strobe access is required, or for general use you may want the option to easily go between turbo and low for different jobs around the house.

A lanyard, pocket and holster are all included to provide versatile ways to carry the torch.

A very nice hand sized torch built to military standards. The beam is strong with a good throw of light. I have the MT40 which clearly has a greater range but is by no means much brighter for closer distances.
