An upgrade to the venerated MH20, this flashlight will reach farther, last longer, and shine brighter than its predecessor. Nitecore's MH23 shoots 1800 lumens out to 294 meters on Turbo, lasting at least 30 minutes before temperature regulation kicks in. Turbo mode is also easy to access by holding the button down, specially designed for search and rescue operations. If you press the button halfway for half a second, you'll activate Ultralow, recommended for close-in lighting.

The MH23 is machined from aerospace-grade aluminum alloy, given military-grade hard-anodization and diamond knurling to keep the light from slipping out of bare hands. When a new battery (sold separately) is installed, the button will glow blue thanks to the power indicator reporting voltage. This feature is able to be activated at will.
