3 of 5 Nice Balance of runtimes, Non-recessed switch November 25, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Iowa, United States  
The New P12 is a slightly longer version of the usual lights. It has very long runtimes of 3.75 hours of 1200 Lumens and 50 days of 1 lumen. For Law enforcement you will probably not flatten the battery. It has one major problem in that twice I has found my light turned on in a Molle vest chest pocket. If it were used in the provided tactical duty holster it could also get activated without the user knowing possibly at a very inappropriate time with life threatening consequences. The old P12 had a recessed switch and it did nohave this problem. That is the only reason I would not recommend it for lw enforcement. suffer this problem. You can loosen the tailcap but that negates the function of the tailcap switch.

5 of 5 Patrol Worthy November 18, 2019
Reviewer: Ken from Des Moines, IA United States  
This light would replace the other larger format lights and add runtime. I like the battery configuration being adaptable to slightly smaller ones. It has plenty of throw and lower modes for other less demanding situations. I do wish the tailcap protected the switch a bit more to avoid unintended activation.
