The Nitecore EA81 Caveman is powered by eight AA alkaline/NiMH batteries and boasts an impressive maximum output of 2150 lumens.

The EA81 features a Cree XHP50 Quad-Die LED that is capable of emitting twice the brightness of a XM-L2 LED, yet remains the same size, therefore halving the heat generated.

A micro-textured reflector produces a wide angle of lighting with a smooth beam pattern, that can shine up to 462 metres when in turbo mode.

There is five brightness settings to chose from as well as three special modes of strobe, SOS and location beacon. To prevent accidental activation of the light, the EA81 can be put into lockout mode by pressing and holding both buttons for more than one second, while the light is turned on.

The dual switch has a power button that turns the torch on/off and also provides instant access to ultra-low. The second is a mode button that cycles through the brightness settings with a single click and holding it down enters the special modes.

Pressing the mode switch while the torch is off will indicate the battery power status. A blue LED will blink three times for +50% power, twice when power is below 50% and once when the battery is close to depletion.

Would I choose this torch again...DEFINITELY!
Tuesday, 13 September 2016  | 

This torch has great build quality, and it is very easy to use the two thumb buttons with thieir simple interface for the various functions. Also, the torch is not particularly large or heavy. This is one bright torch on the maximum setting of 2150 lumens. Very good short range spread and terrific reach. Best feature - runs on AA batteries so can be quickly changed "in the field". (It even has a warning light display to show remaining battery charge). Would I choose this torch again...DEFINITELY!

Versatility and easy interface
Monday, 30 May 2016  | 

There are many high-performance torches out there, so why this one? For me, two reasons: The first is the position and action of the switches, which are just under the thumb, easy to find easy to operate with one hand. I have used an older model from Nitecore which needed a combination of half- and full- presses to access all the settings, but this version does away with that by having two buttons;one for on off and one for mode. Much easier.

The second reason is versatility: this runs on "corner shop" AA cells so no special purchase of expensive li-ions and chargers needed. Having said that, the best power option is probably "eneloops" brand AA, which do need their own charger (don't buy the timer-only version), but you can use anything, really - very unusual in a high-end torch.

Nitecore EA81 torch for dazzling
Saturday, 9 January 2016  | 

Great torch - does what it says on the tin. Infinitely better than my stupidly heavy clu-lite which is now redundant. I did a lot of research and this seems to be the best value of its specification and with a 5 year guarantee too.
