Offering a maximum output of 1000 lumens, the Nitecore EC4GT is powered by two 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable batteries or four CR123A lithium metal non-rechargeable batteries.
As with all the Nitecore GT models, the EC4GT also features the Cree XP-L HI V3 LED and combined with the 'big eye' reflector it has the capability to concentrate the beam and boost the beam range, giving a maximum distance of 475 metres.
The EC4GT has a die-cast body, which is manufactured using a casting method of injecting molten aluminium under high pressure into a mould cavity, ensuring the highest level of structural integrity with the head and the tube being an integral whole.
The unibody construction gives the EC4GT excellent heat dissipation abilities and also makes it super lightweight considering it's overall size and length.
Designed for easy one handed operation, the EC4GT features a dual side switch with an integrated power level indicator. Each time batteries are inserted or the power button is pressed with light off, the power indicator light will blink to display remaining battery power. Above 50% it will blink three times, twice when the battery power reaches below 50% and once when the battery is close to depletion.
The power switch controls on/off, standby and gives instant access to ultra-low, while the mode button cycles through the brightness outputs, gives instant access to turbo and controls strobe/SOS modes. A double click of the mode switch from the off position will immediately enter strobe mode.
The EC4GT can be locked to prevent accidental activation by pressing and holding both buttons while the torch is on for over one second.
