Nitecore MH10

So you desire a compact flashlight to carry around with you all the time but you do not want just any light, you want the best. There may not be any one flashlight that that can be said to be way better than all the rest but there are some well known brands that do produce quality products. The new Nitecore Multitask Hybrid Series MH10, a USB-rechargeable pocketable flashlight is one light that should exceed the expectations of most users.

The Nitecore MH10 measures 130mm in length and is built from an aircraft-grade alloy which features diamond-shaped knurling for a firm grip and an HAIII military grade hard-anodized black finish. The flashlight also features a coated mineral glass lens and a removable pocket clip. The MH10 utilizes integrated “Precision Digital Optics Technology” (PDOT) which provides for extreme reflector performance. The flashlight contains a Cree XM-L2 U2 LED which produces a maximum output of 1000 lumens and a 232 meter beam throw. The flashlight can be powered by two Lithium CR123 batteries or two rechargeable Li-ion RCR123 batteries and one rechargeable Li-ion 18650 battery.

The Nitecore MH10 produces four light modes: High 1000 Lumens 1Hr 15Min (18650 Battery) – 1Hr (CR123 batteries); Mid 240 Lumens 6Hr (18650 Battery) – 5Hr 15Min (CR123 batteries); Low 70 Lumens 28Hr (18650 Battery) – 20Hr (CR123 batteries); Lower 1 Lumen 520Hr (18650 Battery) – 300Hr (CR123 batteries). The flashlight also features three special modes: Location Beacon; SOS; Strobe.

The MH10 is operated by a multifunctional side swide switch located below the head. To turn on and off the the flashlight you press the switch until a click is heard. With the MH10 switched on you can access the various brightness levels by pressing and holding the switch for more than 0.5 second to cycle through in the following order; ultra-low, low, medium and high. Release the switch when the desired brightness is being displayed. The flashlight will turn on in the previously selected mode the next time it is used.

When in high output, the MH10 will reduce output luminance automatically after five minutes of use to prevent overheating. With the MH10 switched off, you can go straight to the ultra-low mode by pressing and holding the switch for more than one second. Press the switch twice in quick succession in any state to enter strobe mode. When in strobe mode, press and hold the switch for more than one second to cycle through SOS, location beacon and strobe modes. To exit, simply press the switch again. The MH10 does not have memory effect in any of these special modes.

The Nitecore MH10 using one 18650 Li-ion battery can be recharged with the included USB charging cable via the flashlight’s charging port and a power
source. One depleted 18650 battery would take approximately six hours to be fully recharged. A blue power indicator light around the switch illuminates during the charging process. When charging is complete, the flashlight terminates the charging process automatically and the blue power indicator goes out. The MH10 features reverse polarity protection which prevents damage from incorrectly inserted batteries.

Three mini Cree flashlights

Whether you have been impacted by the blizzard or not this is certainly not the time to be without some form of emergency lighting. Along with your other emergency supplies there should be at least a couple flashlights and some batteries to ensure you are never left in the dark. Okay, so maybe you are on a budget but with a little research you can find the deals to provide you with adequate lighting without leaving a hole in your wallet.

How does six flashlights for less than sixteen bucks sound? Pretty good to me! This deal is actually three mini flashlights and three keychain lights. In total darkness a keychain light would provide more than enough illumination for normal activity. The Mini Cree flashlight measures 92mm in length and is constructed from an aerospace-grade aluminum alloy which features knurling for a firm grip and an anodized black finish.

The Mini Cree flashlight contains a Cree XPE-Q5 which delivers a maximum output of 400 lumens and three light modes: High; Low; Strobe. The flashlight is operated by a push-button switch in the tailcap. You can manipulate the beam of the flashlight by sliding the head out and in to adjust the focus to your desire. The light is powered by one AA battery which you would have to source independently.

This flashlight pack contains three mini Cree flashlights and three LED keychain lights. The keychain lights come with batteries installed. These lights can be placed at different locations around the home or distributed to family members. The thing to remember about the use of AA batteries is that they should be removed from flashlights during prolonged periods of non-use.

Two Ultrafire XML T6 LED flashlights

I am sure you have heard cliche, “Two heads are better than one”. While these words are not normally uttered in reference to flashlights, there is certainly some resonance here when we have a deal with not only two flashlights but two batteries and two chargers as well. The deal is actually two sets of one each Ultrafire XML T6 LED flashlight, two 18650 batteries and charger in one flashlight pack.

The Ultrafire mini flashlight measures 116mm in length and would be handy for just about any low light scenario occurring in the home or outdoors. The flashlight contains a Cree XM-L LED emitter which produces upwards to 1000 lumens and five light modes: High; Mid; Low; Strobe; SOS. The Ultrafire mini is housed in an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy which features an anodized black finish and a spring clip for convenience.

The flashlight is powered by one rechargeable 18650 Li-ion battery. It is operated by a push-button switch in the tailcap which you press all the way down to turn on and all the way down again to turn off. Accessing the light modes of the Ultrafire XML T6 LED flashlight is achieved by slightly depressing the switch to change the light modes. Alternatively, you can zoom in and zoom out the flashlight’s beam by pulling the head out or in to the desired brightness level.
