5.0 Overall rating
The Nitecore MH27 has a maximum output of 1000 lumens from the Cree XP-L HI V3 LED and as part of the MH series the MH27 features inbuilt charging via the side USB port.
Powered by 1x18650 Li-ion cell (can be recharged inside the torch) or 2xRCR123 batteries (do NOT recharge inside the torch) or 2xCR123 non-rechargeable cells. Batteries NOT included.
By utilising the Cree XP-L HI V3 LEDs domeless design, the MH27 produces a concentrated long range beam (up to 462 meters), normally only found in searchlights with much larger reflectors. Three independent auxiliary LEDs provide additional red, green and blue colour lighting.
Advanced temperature regulation (ATR) technology allows the MH27 to dynamically adjust output performance according to its body temperature. This prevents damage from overheating and prolongs its working life.
The MH27 features a multi-purpose side switch for quick operation and enables direct access to turbo and red illumination. Special flashing modes can be accessed by pressing both switches simultaneously. There is a blue light indicator inside the switch that can be used as a location beacon when the torch is turned off (can be disabled) and also acts as a multi-meter to display the battery voltage.
Brightness Levels (based on 1 x 18650 3400 mAH battery):

Other unique features include removable anti-rolling grip ring, reverse polarity protection (use with button top 18650 only), double spring anti-impact mechanism, which buffers recoil when mounted to a gun. The MH27 can be used in conjunction with the RSW1 remote pressure switch and GM02 gun mount. It also accepts all Nitecore 40mm filters and diffusers.
Maximum beam distance of 462 metres, waterproof to IPX-8 (2 metres submersible) & resistant to impacts from 1.5 metres.
