The Nitecore EC30 is a small, compact and lightweight torch that utilises a Cree XHP35 HD LED for a maximum output of 1800 lumens on the turbo setting. Crystal coating technology combined with precision digital optics technology provides extreme reflector performance that enables the beam to reach up to 220 metres.

Due to the high output, the EC30 requires a rechargeable lithium-ion 18650 high drain battery like the Nitecore NL1835HP 8A, or a rechargeable lithium-ion IMR18650. The battery needs to have a high discharge current of at least 8 A in order to work. The EC30 can also use two CR123A lithium metal non rechargeable batteries or two rechargeable RCR123A lithium-ion batteries however the turbo setting is unavailable if you are using these batteries.

The EC30 is operated using the side mounted switch and has a choice of two modes. Daily mode offers direct access to turbo from standby and tactical mode offers direct access to strobe from standby. To change modes, turn the light off and loosen the tail cap and then hold down the button as you tighten the tail cap again. A single blink will indicate daily mode and two blinks will indicate tactical mode.

All five brightness settings are available in both modes and the last brightness setting used will be remembered next time you use the torch. From off, hold the button down to turn the light on in the previous used brightness setting, or continue to hold the button down to cycle through ultra-low, low, mid, high, turbo. Once you release the button it will select the brightness setting.

From standby two quick presses of the button will enter ultra-low and three quick presses will enter instant turbo or strobe depending on what mode the torch is in. When the light is on in any mode, press and hold the button to momentarily enter turbo and release to go back to the previous output.

The special modes are accessed by triple pressing the button with the light on. Strobe will come on first and then to switch between strobe, SOS and Beacon press and hold the button for 1 second. When not in use it is advised to loosen the tail cap half a turn to prevent accidental activation of the button.

The advance temperature regulation (ATR) technology allows the EC30 to dynamically adjust output performance based on the internal temperature of the torch in order to protect the LED from overheating and prolong its working life.

A voltage power indicator light is beneath the side switch and will display the voltage each time the battery is inserted or the button is pressed while in standby. The light will flash to show the voltage, for example if the voltage is 4.2 V the light will flash four times, pause and then flash two more times.

This pocket sized torch can easily be carried with the stainless steel pocket clip and it can be used hands free with the magnetic base.

Operational Modes

Turbo: 1800 lumens; 30 minutes run-time; 220 m beam range*
High: 810 lumens; 1 hour, 45 minutes run-time; 153 m beam range*
Mid: 300 lumens; 5 hours, 30 minutes run-time; 84 m beam range
Low: 80 lumens; 18 hours run-time; 40 m beam range
Ultra-low: 1 lumen; 310 hours run-time; 5 m beam range

*The run-time for turbo and high mode is tested without the temperature regulation.

Please note: The built-in temperature regulation automatically monitors the internal temperature when in turbo and high brightness settings and will lower the lumen output if the torch overheats. Therefore the Turbo mode is unavailable whilst the torch is too hot.

Tested to ANSI/NEMA FL1 standards using 1 x Nitecore 3500 mAh NL1835HP 8 A lithium-ion battery. Data may vary slightly during real-world use due to battery, individual usage habits and environmental factors.


Important Battery and Battery Charger Information

Primary Cells - Please note that CR123A lithium metal primary battery cells are not rechargeable and the turbo mode cannot be accessed when using this battery type.

Rechargeable Cells - If you are intending to use lithium-ion rechargeable batteries then you will also need to purchase a suitable battery charger if you do not already have one. The turbo brightness cannot be accessed when using RCR123 lithium-ion batteries. Only high drain protected 18650 lithium-ion batteries that are  ≥ 8 A (such as Nitecore NL1835HP) or IMR18650 lithium-ion batteries will access the turbo brightness. 18650 lithium-ion batteries with a discharge current less than  8 A are NOT compatible with this torch.
