The Nitecore P12 High Output Led Flahlight
features four output modes with setting designed to be ideal in its own way. The 1000 lumen high mode is bright enough for searching fields and vast expanses outdoors. The 210 lumen all-purpose mode is perfect for indoor and close-quarters use. P12 functions as a comfortable reading light with the 50 lumen low mode, or as a middle-of-the-night light with a 1 lumen firefly mode. Runtimes up to 520 hours. The compact design fits comfortably in your pocket, backpack, belt holster, or anywhere else you keep your light. With advanced technology making devices smaller, Nitecore has been able to make the P12 not much bigger than the battery that powers it! Turn the light on/off with the tail switch and change modes with the side switch. With a simple interface, there is no possibility of getting the wrong mode when you need it the most. Additionally, the side switch features a LED status indicator, warning you to replace or recharge your batteries when necessary. This flashlight also remembers your last mode so whatever mode you were in when you shut it off will be the one you start with next time you use it. 5 Year Warranty from Nitecore.
Value of a strobing flashlight
he utility of the strobe setting was made apparent to me when this feature was new, and it was being demonstrated for me at a police trade show. The vendor had a tent set up on the show floor, so they could do the demo in reduced light. He told me, “I want you to take as strong and stable a stance as you can, because I’m going to knock you on your ass.” I braced, and he whipped the light up right in front of my eyes and strobed me. The effect was so dazzling that he didn't have to hit me very hard to knock me down. This was an excellent object lesson.
I keep my light on the strobe setting when it’s in my jacket. Startle me in a dark place or act aggressive towards me, and you might get the object lesson, too. However, when your vision clears, I’ll be holding a pistol on you. (taken from Quora discusson)
