The Nitecore P12GT is a compact, EDC torch that boasts a 1000 lumen output from a Cree XP-L HI V3 LED.
A combination of the Cree XP-L HI V3 LED, 'crystal coating technology' and 'precision digital optics technology' provides extreme reflector performance. All these features result in a concentrated beam that can throw as far as 367 metres from just a 1 inch head, which previously only a wider reflector would give such a throw.
Powered by either two CR123A non-rechargeable lithium batteries or one 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable battery, the P12GT has a run-time of up to 1 hour on high setting.
The advance temperature regulation (ATR) technology allows the P12GT to dynamically adjust output performance based on the internal temperature of the torch in order to protect the LED from overheating and prolong its working life.
The P12GT features a tail switch for momentary illumination and turns the light on and off. The side mode switch allows users to select the desired brightness level of ultra-low, low, mid or high as well as activating the strobe, SOS and beacon modes.
The mode 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 P12GT is compatible with the 25.4 mm filters and diffusers, the weapon mount, bike mount and the Nitecore RSW1 Remote Switch. See the related panel to the right for the full range of accessories.

Using 1 x Nitecore 18650 3400 mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery:
High: 1000 lumens; 1 hour run-time*
Mid: 280 lumens; 5 hours, 15 minutes run-time
Low: 55 lumens; 28 hours run-time
Ultra Low: 1 lumen; 520 hours run-time
Using 2 x Nitecore CR123A lithium metal primary single-use batteries:
