Ever have trouble plugging in a USB cable or power cord, say for your phone? Try to insert it one way and it doesn't work, so you flip it around and again, no success. Flip the cable back to the original orientation and you will eventually find a connection. The Klarus XT12 flashlight is equipped with a magnetic connector, which eliminates the frustration typically felt when trying to charge a device. The internally rechargeable light is therefore incredibly easy to keep powered and therefore ready for use at all times. Included with every unit purchased is an 18650 battery that can easily be charged and re-charged while it remains in place inside of the light! There is no need to purchase a separate charger! Another great feature of the light is its power indicator light. When charging, the light will remain red; however, once the battery is full, the ring around the magnetic connector will turn green.
The Klarus XT12 features a dual tail-cap switch for one-handed operation that offers instant access to the Strobe mode, with the touch of a button. The generously-sized switch allows for quick-and-easy activation, which is necessary when predators are near. The primary switch is raised above the mode button to allow for easy distinction between the two. The Klarus XT12 LED flashlight also includes a standard UNC1/4' - 20 threaded mounting point for attachment to most tripods.
This tactical light is powered using (1) 18650 battery, which is included with purchased; however, if a USB source is not readily available, users also have the ability to utilize (2) CR123A lithium primary batteries, if desired. Please note that the XT12 is sold with a custom lithium-ion dual-orientation battery that was designed to automatically work regardless of its orientation within the light. Other 18650 batteries with PCB protection, while compatible with the light, cannot be charged internally. A separate charger is required, if using an alternate brand with PCB protection.
