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.

Innovative single button two-stage switch offers a user-friendly interface
