The MH23 is charged via the included USB lead and features a built-in power indicator to ensure you are alerted when the MH23 needs charging and also displays the battery voltage when new cells are inserted. The charging circuit terminates charging upon completion and has integrated overcharge and over-discharge protection.
The MH23 features five brightness levels, ranging from 1 to 1800 lumens, plus a strobe, SOS and beacon modes. The outputs are operated by a single dual stage side switch, allowing for easy one-handed use. To turn the light on and off fully click the switch, and then partway to cycle through the five brightness levels. The MH23 also features direct access to turbo and ultra-low outputs from the off position. Advanced Temperature Regulation (ATR) regulates the brightness output and adapts to the ambient environment accordingly, to prevent the LED from overheating.
