It's a lantern! It's a flashlight! It's ... both! The NITECORE LR12 gives you the power of a compact everyday flashlight with the utility of a retractable diffusor to instantly convert your light into a pocket-sized lantern. A CREE XP-L HD V6 LED emits up to 1000 lumens output with up to 182 yards of throw which is plenty of light for household tasks, searching & inspecting and all your other EDC uses. Only a twist away is the retractable diffusor that turns your output into soft, 360° ambient lighting you can use for camping and emergency backup. At 4.18" in length and 2.77oz, the LR12 can be carried comfortably, even in your pocket!
