Why an Infinite Brightness Flashlight is a Must Have in Your Gear

Do you wish your flashlight had more output levels? Or maybe different ones? The truth is no matter how thoughtful a design, a flashlight with predetermined levels will never work for every single user.

The new infinite brightness rotary switch on the NITECORE P26, EC22 and MT22C solve this problem by giving you infinite brightness possibilities for full control over your flashlight.

Our flashlight expert Albert walks you through this infinitely useful feature and helps you choose which of these flashlights is right for you.

Go Hands-free with NITECORE's Magnetic Flashlights


It's hard to stress how helpful a magnetic tail cap can be until you find yourself struggling to balance a flashlight in one hand and do repairs with the other. It's awkward and frustrating and even dangerous. The good news is, it's also completely avoidable with the right tool.

Nowadays many flashlights include a magnetic tail cap so you can stick your light to any metal surface available. Today we're focusing on three NITECORE flashlights that include magnetic tail caps and show you why these versatile and powerful flashlights deserve a spot in your everyday carry.


NITECORE MT21C

1000 Lumens | CREE XP-L HD V6 LED | 201 Yards 


One of the newest flashlights from NITECORE, the MT21C hits several high points for anyone looking for a versatile flashlight they can carry everyday. A flexible head and magnetic base allow you to turn a normal everyday carry torch into a poseable, directed work light in mere seconds. There's also a hanging loop you can use when a metal surface isn't available.

Whether you need a lot of light just a little, the MT21C has 5 brightness levels and 3 special modes (Strobe, SOS and Beacon) for emergency needs.

NITECORE LR12

1000 Lumens | CREE XP-L HD V6 LED | 182 Yards


Coming soon! Based on the award-winning LA10, the LR12 is really a flashlight and lantern in one. A quick twist on the compact, lipstick tube body extends an open-top diffusor to turn the light from a handheld torch to 360° lantern with ease.

At 1000 lumens max output, the LR12 is the brightest lantern NITECORE offers. Its size and functionality make it ideal for camping, emergency backup and exploring.

NITECORE Concept 1

1800 Lumens | CREE XHP35 HD E2 LED | 240 Yards


It's quite possibly one of the sleekest looking flashlights around, but the NITECORE Concept 1 isn't just for show. This 1800 lumen, single 18650 everyday carry flashlight has a magnetic tail cap to provide a healthy blend of form and function.

The Concept 1'st minimalist body measures only 4.39" inches in length and weighs just over 3 ounces (without battery) so you can comfortably carry it with you everyday using the stainless steel pocket clip or included holster.

Three features to look for in your next camping flashlight



1. Ultralow Default

Why it's important: There's nothing worse than getting a bright flash to your eyes in the middle of the night. Having a flashlight that always turns on at the lowest setting is a surefire way to prevent such mishaps.

Our Pick: With the ability to fine tune your output, the EC22 is our pick for one of the easiest to use flashlights with a default low output.






2. Multiple LED Outputs

Why it's important: When picking out a camping light, look for lights with different output options to get more functionality out of your gear. Red LEDs are perfect for preserving night vision and high CRI LEDs produce better colors and details for up-close work.

Our Pick:We recommend the NU25 headlamp which has the added bonus of being hands-free! This rechargeable headlamp has three output sources for task-specific lighting every time.



3. Size

Why it's important: It may seem like a no brainer, but size is a key consideration for any camping light. The good news is many NITECORE lights are so compact you can fit them in your pocket.

Our Pick: We like the the LR10 mini lantern which measures only L-2.58"xW-1.97"xH-0.98" and weighs a mere 2.08 oz!
