Nitecore MH10 (MH10) specifications
The MH10 flashlight offers precise and focused illumination. Unlike ambient or overhead lighting sources, flashlights allow you to direct the light exactly where you need it.
|Body diameter||25.4 mm|
|Head diameter||25.4 mm|
|Material||aluminium alloy with HAIII hard-anodized finish|
The MH10 is small, compact, and designed for ultra-portability. The length of the MH10 flashlight can affect its portability. A shorter flashlight is generally easier to carry in a pocket, bag, or pouch, making it more convenient for everyday use or when you're on the go. The aluminium body of MH10 has excellent thermal conductivity, meaning it can effectively dissipate heat generated by the flashlight's components, such as the LED or battery.
Hard-Anodized Type III (HAIII) is a specific anodizing process that creates a thicker and harder oxide layer compared to regular anodizing. It involves subjecting the aluminum to a higher voltage and a sulfuric acid bath, resulting in a dense and durable coating. The MH10 flashlight is offered in a stylish black color.

|Color temperature||5700 K|
|Lens||AR coated glass|
Cree LEDs are commonly used in a wide range of lighting applications. Their products are trusted by lighting professionals and have gained a strong reputation for quality and performance. The choice of color temperature depends on the specific lighting application and personal preferences. With the smooth reflector of the MH10, the beam tends to have a well-defined hotspot at the center, which provides a concentrated beam of light for long-range applications.
The AR coating reduces the loss of light due to reflections, allowing more light to pass through the lens. This can increase the overall brightness and efficiency of the MH10 flashlight. The MH10 has electronic switch. Some flashlights with electronic switches have programmable features that allow users to customize the behavior of the flashlight. This may include setting specific modes, configuring brightness levels, or enabling unique functions according to individual preferences.
With 1000 lm, the MH10 flashlight will offer a brighter and more powerful beam of light. This higher output can be advantageous in various situations where you require enhanced visibility or need to illuminate larger areas. The MH10 flashlight with 13500 cd has an extended throw distance, allowing you to illuminate objects or areas at greater distances. This can be advantageous for outdoor activities, search and rescue operations, or scenarios where long-range visibility is required.
The throw is the calculated distance in meters at which the flashlight produces a light intensity of 0.25 lux. Candela per lumen (cd/lm) is a measure of a flashlight's beam intensity relative to its total luminous flux or output. It quantifies the concentration of light emitted by the flashlight in relation to the total amount of light produced.
Modes on a flashlight refer to different output settings or levels of brightness that can be selected to suit different needs and preferences. The MH10 has mode memory. Mode memory means that the flashlight will remember the mode you were using when the light was last turned off, and when you turn it on again. Strobe mode on MH10 flashlight produces a rapid, repeated flashing of light. It can be used for signaling purposes, self-defense, or attracting attention in emergency situations. SOS mode of the MH10 produces a specific sequence of long and short flashes to signal distress or emergency situations. It is commonly used in outdoor adventures or survival scenarios.
|Battery||1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery|
The MH10 flashlight utilizes 1 x 18650 Li-Ion battery as its power source. The MH10 has a battery indicator. A battery indicator is a feature that provides information about the remaining power level of the flashlight's battery. It helps users monitor the battery status and estimate how much runtime they have left before the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. The USB charger port on a flashlight can be particularly useful in emergency situations where access to power outlets may be limited.
LVP (Low Voltage Protection) is designed to protect the battery from being over-discharged, which can lead to reduced battery life or even permanent damage. The built-in thermal control automatically adjusts brightness output to prevent overheating. The "6" in the IP68 rating represents the level of protection against solid objects, specifically dust and foreign particles. It indicates that the MH10 flashlight, is fully protected against the entry of dust and other solid objects. The "8" in the IP68 rating indicates the highest level of protection against water ingress.

spare USB plug
With an included battery you can immediately use the flashlight for your desired applications, saving time and allowing you to focus on your tasks or activities. The holster provides a reliable and convenient way to keep your flashlight securely protected when not in use. The clip is useful to keep the light secured in your pocket. The lanyard prevents accidental loss of the flashlight. Instead of searching for compatible O-rings or waiting for replacements to arrive, having spare O-rings readily available allows for convenient and immediate repairs or replacements.
The performance of the Nitecore MH10 flashlight is measured according to the ANSI / NEMA FL1 Standard 30 seconds after switching the light on. The ANSI/NEMA FL1 2009 Standard is a set of flashlight performance guidelines.
