The MCH line of handhelds redefined what a EDC-style light could do. Wildly popular, it was instant success. And thankfully, our customers spoke and gave us immediate feedback. As always, Cloud listened. And now, we have integrated your requests and have brand-new capabilities in the latest iteration of the MCH series. With these changes, the MCH surges that much further in front of the rest.
The MCH is now fully programmable, by the end-user. This allows you, for the first time, full control over the output of the flashlight. Every MCH ships from the factory in Mode 1. But there are 4 other modes you can select, based on your needs. And you can change the programming anytime you want. So the MCH is more configurable than ever before.
Mode 1: High-only (100%)
Mode 2: Low (10%), High (100%)
Mode 3: High (100%), Low (10%)
Mode 4: Very Low (5%), Medium (30%), High (100%)
Mode 5: High (100%), Medium (30%), Very Low (5%)
Programming is incredibly simple and intuitive. CLICK HERE to see the informational video on those details.
With the advent of the Programmable light heads, the MCH line has now been streamlined for you. The EDC line, which is a higher lumen and lower candela offering. And the HC line, which is a slightly lower lumen and higher candela offering. Both of which are again, fully programmable.
Tail Cap Configurations:
Critically, MCH allows the user to carefully select from an industry-first (and Patented) Adjustable Negligent Discharge protection system. Each light ships with the full ND Protection package and the user can now configure the tail cap for their respective needs. Be it deep-pocket carry or being at home on your plate carrier, the MCH is duty-grade in every way. And fully configurable to what you need. If your need changes, you just adjust the ND Protection accordingly with parts you already have.
Specs for MCH-EDC:
- 18650 Single Output option: 40,000 Candela/1700 Lumens/65 minutes
- Two CR123A Output 30,000 Candela/550 Lumens/60 minutes
- 5000K light temperature, it is a phenomenal EDC option that displays coloration similar to the older incandescent bulbs.
Specs for MCH-HC:
- 18650 Single Output option: 80,000 Candela/1,100 Lumens/75 minutes
- Two CR123A Output 70,000 Candela/400 Lumens/70 minutes
- 6000K light temperature makes it is a phenomenal option that avoids any blue-tint of legacy LEDs.
You can now optimize the tail cap of your handheld light. We are proud to offer an industry-first Negligent Discharge Protection system for the MCH that end users can adjust as needed.
The shorter ND protector reduces the amount of shrouding around the switch and is ideal for anyone planning to use the Thyrm SwitchBack Technique. You are also able to easily utilize many of the other traditional low-light defensive techniques with this option.
The other 2 ND protectors offer progressively more robust ND protection as they create a hard barrier between the outside world and the light switch. This is optimal for concealed carry and EDC in instances where the light may be in your pocket and you need to avoid inadvertently turning that light on while seated, etc.
The best part? The entire ND Protection System comes with EVERY MCH. And these are easily interchanged by you, the end user. If you need to adjust the light from one role to the other, it can be done in about 10 seconds.
Battery Changing with Ease:
With the all new MCH, you are able to easily change the battery from the light head side of the MCH. The positive end always goes to the front of the light. And there is reverse polarity protection built in just in case.
The MCH uses 1 Lithium Ion, Rechargeable, Flat-top, Unprotected 18650 which is included. It is also compatible with most button-top unprotected cells and. The MCH has very limited compatibility with Protected cells. Do not assume compatibility with those. We favor the Unprotected cells due to the substantial performance increases.
The MCH lights also now accept CR123 batteries. Use of CR123 batteries will absolutely result in lower output and shorter run-times. That is purely a function of CR123 cells being very inferior to our rechargeable cells. But this new CR123 capability is perfect for use in emergency situations.
The MCH ships with a standard, metal deep-carry pocket clip that is made from spring steel and then heat-treated and black nitride plated.
