Any one else have a problem? My light worked for one day and now when I turn it on, it flashes once and then nothing. The battery is brand new.

same problem, it just sopped working and now it does nothing, how do we get warranty info from massdrop?
Can this stand up on a flat surface (pointing light up)? They really should make three of those nubs in the back rather than two. Similar to what they do on the front.
So $8.79 on ebay?

7.99 in amazon

not seeing there for the P12GT... It is out for me anyway based on the Cree, I am a Nichia guy.
Anyone ever try to use this as a front light on a bike? To see at night time? I have See.Sense lights and I don't think they're bright enough to see with. Don't get me wrong they are a great light for being seen. Anyway if anyone has any experience please let me know!

Bike light need flood not throw...they a head lamb...olight H1R or H2R will be great for the job.

Thanks Rebuswind
Nitecore's reputation for fragile build quality and poor customer service is well earned. Lots and lots of complaints about lights that stop working, and zero interest from Nitecore in remedying the problems.
I bought one through MD and while it worked, it was certainly my favorite flashlight. But it just quit working a bit over a year after purchase.

I appreciate the heads-up. Despite the good specs and price, I'll pass on this one.
40$ shipping is a bit too much....
$35 shipping to Canada! AM I MISSING SOMETHING?

For $12 more you can have it in two days at your door..WITH THE CHARGER - https://goo.gl/5QxQTk

That's the P12, not the P12GT...
TobyDanger
My bad sir. You are correct. Thanks for catching that.
$47.25 shipping and handling for a flashlight? What on Earth is going on with Massdrop lately?
This is by far my favorite EDC flashlight/torch. It's always clipped to the inside of my right pocket, ready to pierce the light, or disorient a bad guy. FYI, it's also good for testing eclipse sunglasses. :)

You purchased from massdrop?

No, directly from Nitecore via Amazon. I don't believe Nitecore ships the P12GT with a battery.
Cheapest I found on Amazon was $74 Prime. Looks like this is a good deal. Now can I justify a nother flashlight. Hmmmm
I own this light from one of the prior drops - I absolutely love it and recommend it. I use it for work and the size is just right in my hands, the light thrown is blinding and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a powerful palm sized light.
$21,50 is too much shipping to send it to the Netherlands.Usually it is $7.50
I'm getting Nitecore EA45S. In comparison, does the P12GT have a greater flood than the EA45S?
How do you charge it?

The charging is not built into the flashlight. Either you use 2 non-rechargeable CR123 or a rechargeable 18650 with a separate charger.
jzen0
You can get a 18650 cell with a built in micro usb input to charge it. You'll just need a micro usb cable.
Anyone know if this is clippable to a hat?
jzen0
Not really... to big and heavy.
jzen0
You might want to checkout one of these (drop ended but you can request). Much lighter and would work for clipping on a hat. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/maratac-aa-titanium-nichia-flashlight-rev1
This one would work for a belt, headband, molle system, etc. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/maratac-aaa-ss-tpf
is it possible to get a neutral version?
I have one of these, it was in a bundle on amazon that included a battery and everything in the picture. It is an awesome flashlight, I absolutely lovely. I'm very tempted to grab another one at this price and finding another battery on Amazon but I'll probably skip it until I get some more cash.
I really hope we get this drop again, I love the flashlight, perfect size for me, it is great, definitely worth the price. Jump on it if you can.

illumn has KeepPower NCR18650B 3400mAh batteries for about $10 a pop. You get a case if you buy 2 or more as well. It's nothing special just a plastic case, but it's about the best bang for your buck, button top, protected, high mAh 18650 you can get. Unless you get something from China that may or may not work, and may or may not be counterfeit.
MD description says you can use 18350. If someone puts two 18350's in this light (assuming they would fit), it will fry the light. Using two 350's will equal 8.4 volts, which will fry the driver. Misleading. A single 18350 is a little longer than half the size of an 18650 and would never make contact. Since this light will run on 2 CR123's, by MD's description, people will think two 18350's will be ok, and it's not. Also, you cannot use 2 16340's. An 16340 is a rechargeable CR123. They are commonly seen as a "RCR123", hence the "R" meaning rechargeable.

Here's a THOROUGH review of the P12GT: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?413438-Nitecore-P12GT-(XP-L-HI-V3-1x18650-or-2x(R)CR123A)-Review It states that it CAN use two RCR 123 batteries.
TearsOfWar
Thanks, I had one about 6 months ago and gave it to my Brother. If they were safe to use, Nitecore would publish it, but they specifically didn't. That review says that it can "accommodate 2x (R)CR123's" , which means they will fit. He never said he used them, and he only tested 18650's. But go for it. Just don't blame Nitecore when your flashlight flashes once then no longer works.
Wow. A whole $2 less than Amazon, not including shipping. Nope.
Own a "few" flashlights and this one is WTF bright and all too easy to adjust [ not like others ]. I will buy another just like it,due to this one being so freakin amazing.
Had a Nitecore go faulty bought from massdrop. They would not help with a warranty claim. better off buying direct from an authorized dealer.
I have this flashlight and it is a high quality light that i love. However, this flashlight can be purchased almost anywhere for cheaper than it is here.

"can be purchased almost anywhere for cheaper" ...link?
OneLove
My bad OneLove. I didn't notice it was a "GT" version. Amazon has it for about $1.00 more ($61.95) than the current unlocked price with free shipping and it's bundled with two additional batteries, so I would rather buy from Amazon and get it in a couple of days rather than wait for whenever it ends up shipping from Massdrop. Walmart also sells it for $61.16 with free shipping. My point being like others have said, that Massdrop isn't really giving us a really great deal by buying in mass quantities as a group. A dollar savings while having to wait a few weeks to receive the product isn't really worth it to me. There are other places also where it is cheaper though such as: http://www.lightmalls.com/nitecore-p12gt-cree-xp-l-hi-v3-1000-lumens-367m-beam-distance-led-flashlight-headlamp-headband-hunting?gclid=COLo8prPrtICFU62wAod0bULLg https://www.ledsupermall.com/nitecore-p12gt-cree-xp-l-hi-v3-1000-lumens-367m-beam-distance-led-flashlight-headlamp-headband-hunting.html?gclid=COjY06XPrtICFYm4wAodS94PCA
Wow not buying any more s--- here
I can get this at Amazon for 49 / free shipping it a rip off here
Shipping cost overpriced ...
Mine still has not arrived. Support has been no assistance. Massdrop has really gone downhill recently.
