Offering a maximum output of 1800 lumens, the Nitecore EC4GTS bridges the gap between the EC4GT and the EC4S and offers the same well loved features of a die cast body that provides the compact size, the dual switch design for easy operation and of course the thumbscrew tail cap that offers a secure fit and the tripod connector.
As with all the Nitecore GTS models, the EC4GTS utilises a Cree XHP35 HD LED to provide the impressive output and when combined with the smooth reflector, it is capable of throwing the beam a maximum distance of 396 metres.
Two 18650 lithium-ion button top batteries are required to power the EC4GTS. Flat top batteries cannot be used as they will not make proper connection. CR123A/16340 batteries are not compatible with this model and should not be used.
The unibody construction gives the EC4GTS excellent heat dissipation abilities due to the low thermal resistance and high level of structural integrity, which ensures the heat is distributed evenly and rapidly to the surface.
Designed for easy one handed operation, the EC4GTS features a dual side switch with an integrated power level indicator. Each time batteries are inserted or the mode 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 bottom power switch controls on/off with a single press and gives instant access to ultra-low by holding the button down while the torch is off. Once the torch is on, the mode button cycles through ultra-low, low, mid, high and turbo. The mode button also gives instant access to turbo by holding the button down or access to the special modes with a quick double press while the light is off and then each press thereafter will cycle through strobe, beacon and SOS modes.
The EC4GTS can be locked to prevent accidental activation by pressing and holding both buttons until the light flashes once. Press and hold both buttons again until the light comes on to exit lockout mode. The torch can last for up to 1 year in lockout mode before the batteries will be fully drained.
