I live in Denmark, I ordered the torch on 17th March and it arrived on the 23rd of march thank you everyone at Torch Direct for a speedy service. As for the torch itself, I look forward to having it with me on the pennines this year and also when I'm out kayaking at night.

The EA8 Caveman was Nitecore's first torch to be powered by eight AA batteries, which provide extended run-times and an impressive maximum output of 900 lumens from the Cree XM-L U2 LED.

The EA8 is waterproof to a depth of two metres, making it an ideal choice for users who want a torch that can be used in all weather conditions.

The output is adjusted via the dual stage 'camera shutter' style side switch. This allows the torch to be operated without the user needing to adjust grip on the light to turn on/off or adjust brightness.

Other features include strobe and SOS settings, integrated power indicator light.

Great torch, great service
Sunday, 5 October 2014  | 

This torch is fantastic once you get used to the gentle touch required for the first stage of the two-stage switch. I would have liked a more positive feel for the first stage, it is very easy to press a little too hard and get the high power mode instead of the daily mode. Having said that, the light output is great and the torch feels very comfortable and balanced to carry. The service from Torch Direct was great and the torch arrived within two days of placing the order. Thanks.
