The Nitecore EA2 is powered by two AA batteries, with a maximum output of 280 lumens.

The Nitecore Explorer series of torches utilises a unique dual electronic switch design. Switch 1 is responsible for turning the light on and off plus accessing strobe and SOS modes and switch 2 controls the brightness adjustment.

In addition there is a hidden turbo mode, accessed pressing and holding switch 2.

The Explorer series also incorporate a red power indicator light, which displays battery voltage and remaining power. Each time the batteries are inserted, the power indicator will blink in sequence to show the current battery voltage. The indicator light also displays the remaining power, blinking once every five seconds when power levels reach 50% and blinking three times every three seconds when the batteries are near exhaustion.

In addition the red LED can be turned to constant on for a low level light that will not degrade the users night vision.

A great compact torch
Monday, 26 August 2013  | 

I've been meaning to get a new torch for a while, but I've just never gotten around to it. I'm amazed at just how much of an improvement this torch is over the ancient incandescent C-cell torch I've kept for emergencies and the toylike wind-up LED torch that seemed like a good idea at the time.

Over the weekend, I had the chance to bring the torch out into the wild. The lower light settings are great for not annoying other people and you don't really need a lot of illumination in the suburbs with a bit of light pollution on the horizon. The lowest setting is a bit too dim for walking around, but you could easily read signs with it. The next setting up kept me out of the muddy patches I usually wander into (on my way back from the pub). The other two settings are a lot brighter and I'm sure they would be sufficient to handle any conditions.

I chose the EA2, because two AA batteries seemed to me like the best trade off in weight, light duration and the availability of AA cells in stores if I urgently needed replacements. I haven't used the torch enough to run the NiMH batteries down to empty yet, but I didn't see any change in the beam for the twenty or so minutes I was walking. That seems pretty good to me. Though it's well below the estimated 30h at that setting, I used see a difference with the old torch after that amount of use.

It seems of sturdy construction and it didn't take me long to forget I was holding it. Very pleased with this purchase.
