The Nitecore EC20 is a compact every day carry torch, and has a maximum output of 960 lumens from a Cree XM-L2 U2 LED.

It is powered by one 18650 rechargeable lithium-ion battery, recommended for best run-times and value for money, or two CR123A non-rechargeable lithium metal batteries.

Designed for easy one handed operation, the EC20 features a side switch that controls all outputs. Single press the side button to turn the torch on and off, and once the torch is on simply hold down the button to cycle through ultra-low, low, mid, turbo and release the button on the desired output. The last used setting will be remembered when the torch is next turned on. Instant access to ultra-low is achieved by holding the button for over 1 second with the light off.

Th access the special modes double click the button in quick succession to enter strobe, and then hold the button down to cycle strobe, SOS and location beacon. Press the button once to return to the previous state.

A power level indicator is built into the switch which will flash once every two seconds when the battery power reaches 50%, and once the power level is low it will begin to blink quickly. In addition, each time batteries are inserted the power indicator light will blink to display the battery voltage.

The temperature regulation will drop the brightness after minutes use in high mode to prevent overheating and extend battery longevity.

Small light, bright - could do with more prominent switch
Wednesday, 13 January 2021  | 

Overall this is a good light-it is very compact, feels like weight but made of quality materials and gives out good illumination.

I brought this my wife who has to walk home a reasonable distance in the dark and although she was very pleased with it her niggles were:
- she worried about accidentally knocking the light on whilst it was in her handbag - unlike some torches it does not have a travel mode. She does now get in the habit of quarter turning the battery compartment instead.
- The switch is not very prominent or easy to find, particularly with gloves on. It does have an LED built into it which indicates battery level and it is a pity that this is not on at a low level when the torch is on. In particular I got a torch with an "dazzle" mode for her personal security and she notes that she thinks she might find it difficult to find this button and press it correctly under stress. A more prominent positive design might be better - this is a bit too subtle.

Great Torch!

The torch is light weight and compact. Fits in the hand nicely. The fact that it uses the 18650 battery appealed to me. The different brightness settings are fab, 1 lumen is enough to see what your doing close up.

Aaahhh my eyes!!! Not 😀
Monday, 7 August 2017  | 

I spend alot of time tramping about at night and I wanted a torch that gave me a reasonable range but an excellent battery life at low level illumination. This fits the bill perfectly: Max 960 lumen - nice thought the beam is fixed and a little wide so it could not be described as a 'spot beam' but is more than adequate for any task I've asked of it. Min: 1 lumen (!) this sounds useless but is great! It's enough to find that missing bit of camp equipment in the tent, or navigate that style -and best of all it doesn't muck up your night vision. On top of that if running at 1 lumen it lasts for 520 hours! (apparently - haven't timed it, I'm not that sad😀 to cap it off you can slap a couple of CR213 batteries in there or a 18650. If I had to fault it, it's a thinner construction than some American makes but still adequate for a torch (just don't use it as a hammer), and the button can be a little fidly to find.
In summary this has become my go-to torch - to the extent that upon loosing my first one I had no qualms in getting another one. If you want one torch that can last a camping trip on only a couple of batteries, light up the path, or just the bottom of your bag without burning out your retinas for 5 minutes, I don't think you'll go wrong with this.

What a Great flashlight.....
Monday, 27 October 2014  | 

It has a perfect switch to tap on and easy to change to different modes. Switch flashes to blue when battery is inserted to show how much power left. I also have a Fenix PD35 and ThruNite TN12 (both 2014 edition) which have a tailend switch but I prefer this to them for let's say normal use. Only this torch comes without holster.
