Offering five brightness levels, the Nitecore EC4S has maximum output of 2150 lumens using a Cree XHP-50 LED.
The EC4S is the second die-cast torch from Nitecore, which is manufactured using a casting method of injecting molten aluminium under high pressure into a mould cavity. This means no separate parts need to be welded or fastened together, ensuring the highest level of structural integrity with the head and the tube being an integral whole.
The unibody construction gives the EC4S excellent heat dissipation abilities and also makes it super lightweight considering it's overall size and length.
Designed for easy one handed operation, the EC4S features a dual side switch with an integrated power level indicator. Each time batteries are inserted, or the mode button is held while the torch is off, the power indicator light will blink to display remaining battery power. Above 50% it will blink three times, when the battery power reaches below 50%, the power indicator blinks twice. When power levels are low, the power indicator will blink once.
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 the three special modes. A double click of the mode switch from the off position will immediately enter strobe mode.
Powered by two 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable batteries or four CR123A lithium metal non-rechargeable batteries, the EC4S has a maximum beam range of 280 metres.
Please Note: If the torch is to be left unused for a period of time it is advisable that you remove the batteries as this torch has a small residual energy usage that isn't noticeable during regular use, however over a long period of time (approx 3 months) it will slowly drain batteries.
