So I figured it was time to get a pocket light to carry. I needed something that can be multi purpose. Obviously I wanted the brightest light in the smallest package I could find. I looked at Streamlights, Fenix, Maratacs and many more. I wanted to be around 50 dollars, and have a few key features.

I needed the light to have a strobe function. I needed the light to be able to tail stand, to act as a candle in case power went out. I needed multi levels of light from extremely dim, to extremely bright. I needed a flashlight that could last multiple hours. I needed a flashlight small enough for my pockets in my jeans. I needed a clip for my pocket. Also I wanted the flashlight not to roll if I placed it down, and it doesnt roll. Well this flashlight checked all of the needs off of my list. I compared this light extensively with the Fenix PD 32, and I couldnt find an area where that light justified the extra expense.

This flashlight has a great balance between throw and flood. There is a sort of donut in the center light, but most flashlights have this issue. The light I would describe as a neutral. Not too cool but definitely not warm. It looks well constructed. Also the button on the back of the light can be halfway depressed so you can keep your finger on the light and let go when you want it off. This is especially important at times you do not want someone to hear a click. Also if you did click the light on, it is barely audible. An extra bonus this light contains a signal that spells out S.O.S in case you are stranded. The light came with a holster but I have yet to use it. It also came with a wrist wrap or whatever they are called. I threw that away. If you are looking for a blinding light, look no further. Nitecore has come a long way and I feel they are surpassing many brands currently held as top makers of flashlights.

I own a Fenix PD35 (2014 Edition), a ThruNite TN12 (2014 Edition), and NiteCore P12. Form factor, they are all virtually identical in size and weight, although the ThruNite feels ever so slightly lighter than the Fenix or NiteCore. All three are excellent lights with only small differences between them. But the differences are noticeable enough to opine on.

Max Brightness: 1) ThruNite 2) NiteCore 3) Fenix. Don't get me wrong. All three are blindingly bright and the differences are minimal.
Feel and aesthetics: 1) NiteCore 2) Fenix 3) ThruNite Note: All three are of excellent build quality. The NiteCore just feels and looks the most bad ass.
Strobe: 1) Fenix (it oscillates the speed. Most disorienting.) 2) NiteCore (Remembers last setting so if you turn it off with strobe and turn it back on strobe will start again. Impressive. 3) ThruNite
Brightness Levels: 1) ThruNite (5 levels with "Firefly" mode) 2) NiteCore (Only 4 levels but has a more useful low setting. 3) Fenix (5 levels)

All three of these lights make an outstanding EDC. That's why I own all three. Each one is just enough different from each other to make it fun and interesting.

The flashlight is superb! It is the brightest light for the money. The problem is the company and their distributors. My flashlight malfunctioned after about 3 months. I contacted Nitecore concerning the issue. Nitecore passed me off to the company from which I purchased the flashlight on Amazon (EdisonBright). EdisonBright has not replied to any of my emails and Nitecore appears to not want to help. It has been approximately 3 months and I still have my broken flashlight in hand. I have resorted to this review to publicly "bash" both Nitecore and EdisonBright. DO NOT BUY FROM EITHER!!!!

This flashlight is unbelievable in power for its small size. It fits perfectly in my hand, as well as mounted on my ar15. You can see the beam of light aiming into the sky, and it illuminates as far as I shoot in the dark. Highly recommended, very durable, nice features, and do not use the strobe if epileptic....

Incredible light. I've been in law enforcement for 15 years and have tried many different lights. The P12 for its size and cost beats them all. The quality is equal to or better than my $200 lights and much brighter than some lights three times its size. This is an extremely high quality Chinese made light easily the equal of Streamlight or Surefire. LED technology has increased dramatically in the last few years.

This was the second Nitecore P12 flashlight I've bought. The first one I bought the on and off clicker was messed up and the light would not work. This one worked great for a little while, and now it will not work. This time, the mode button has gone bad and the light will not work at all. I will not buy this flashlight again! Don't waste your money on this light. It costs too much for it to crap out so fast. Save your money and buy a different flashlight. I missed the return cutoff for Amazon by 2 days! I'll be contacting the manufacturer to see about getting my money back.
