The one that packs a punch, how to use your new MH12SE.
The MH12SE has double the beam distance of similar-sized 25mm bezel lights.
SUPER LONG RUNTIME - 3 hours and 15 minutes of runtime in at 1050 lumens gets all of your tasks done with time to spare. The MH12S runs up to 45 hours on low mode, making it a fantastic emergency light.
BUILT-IN QUICK CHARGE PORT - 3h50min full charge with a 5000mAh battery. This is the fastest built-in USB-C port charger ever seen on a flashlight.
BLINDING 1800 LUMEN BEAM - This amount of blinding brightness will disorientate anyone in front of you. It also shines through heavily tinted windows, smoke, and fog.
QUICK DRAW HOLSTER - Designed after kydex gun holsters, giving you a firm hold and easy quick access. Designed to fit duty belts, also fits on MOLLE webbings.
WORKS WITH 18650 & CR123 - Backward compatible, so you can run all your current 8A and above 18650 and CR123 batteries with the included battery magazine.
STREAMLINED THUMB CONTROL - The tail cap has been redesigned, the lanyard holes no longer poke out from behind, so your thumb can press the button with ease, unlike previous models where you have to rotate the light in your hand if you held it at an odd angle.
READY FOR ANYTHING - Waterproof and sealed down to 2m, the MH12SE can take on any climate. Advanced Temperature Regulation (ATR) technology ensures optimal performance based on the environment's temperatures.
What's the difference between lumen rating and candela rating?
Many companies are pushing out high lumen lights as a sales pitch, the higher the better, but it's actually quite misleading. High lumens help you see the target, yes but that's only half the equation.
The lumen rating simply means how much raw light is being emitted at the LED itself, or once the light gets past the lens. Either way, it’s just a number that measures brightness. That's the first part of the equation.
The second part of the equation is candela. Candela is the measurement of light concentration at a standardized distance. From a first responders' perspective, it tells you how much light you’ll be able to put on a target.
For a duty light, there is nothing more important than being able to put useable light on a target. Useable light on-target gives you the ability to get Positive Identification. It gives you situational awareness. It also gives you a non-lethal option because a high candela light is very disruptive to the human eye.
If you want a quick demonstration: Turn the flashlight feature on your cellphone in a dark room. You’ll see around 50 lumens present but that is not useable in a weapon application. Its intended use is that of an admin light. And it’s fine for that purpose. But if you take that same light, put a reflector over it and focus it, you multiply your candela of that light exponentially. And now it’s useful for a lot more than just simple admin purposes.
So to get a beam truly useful for lighting up targets at a distance, you don't want a flood beam that's purely high in lumens but also high in candela. And the MH12SE does exactly that, it packs 1800 lumens brightness and focuses that into a powerful beam with over 40,000 candela, making it the best light for shooting and similar applications.
