Dubbed as a defense flashlight, the MH1C is a small EDC flashlight that can also be used for tactical and outdoor activity use. For ultra high intensity lighting, the unit uses a premium CREE XM-L U2 LED that can shine that bright light up to 550 lumens. At this power setting the unit can go on running for a maximum of 30 minutes when used with an RCR123 battery that pushes 3.7V and banks 650mAh. It is also a truly rechargeable LED flashlight because the battery does not need to be taken out to get charged, just plug it into any USB port and that’s it.

    Charging Function

    The MH1C is capable of charging a protected RCR123 Li-ion battery via the included USB cable. Simply install a protected RCR123 Li-ion cell, plugging one end of the USB cable into the flashlight and the other end into a universal USB port / adaptor and the MH1C will take care of the rest.


    Charging indicator light

    1. Connect the charging cable to the flashlight and the A/C power adapter to the wall outlet as shown in the adjacent image. Fully charging a depleted RCR123 battery takes approximately 2 hours.

    2. Under normal charging conditions, the red indicator light near the charging port will blink twice every second.

    3. If a problem is detected during the charging process, the MH1C will stop charging and the red indicator will blink rapidly. This is usually caused by faulty or incorrectly inserted batteries.

    4. When charging is complete, the red indicator will illuminate steadily.



    The Nitecore MH1C needs to be turned on in order to enter charging mode. You can use the non rechargeable CR123 in the Nitecore MH1C, but please do not charge these batteries. These non rechargeable batteries are not intended to be recharged and they may explode if you charge them.
