Introducing the brand new EAX Hammer from Nitecore. Nitecore has illuminated the world with brand new flashlight designs that continue to transform the way we think about lighting technology. This addition to the Nitecore family is truly a game changer for high powered lights. Equipped with two LED's that produce a spike in lumen output, the EAX Hammer is a new solution to using AA batteries in high performance flashlights.

Leading The Way

Dual LED Technology

The EAX Hammer is an upgrade from your standard single LED flashlight as this powerhouse is fitted with two CREE XM-L2 (T6) LED's, both burning at a peak beam intensity of up to 60,000 cd. By simply pressing the button towards the bezel, you can select up to five output levels to get just the right amount of light for whatever the situation. Really turn up the heat with the 2,000 lumen Turbo mode for blinding light, or use the one lumen mode for low level lighting without washing out your target.

Solid

Dependable Performance

Get reliable and dependable performance from Nitecore's solid manufacturing. The EAX Hammer is built from aerospace grade aluminum with heat fins that operate best during long run times. The specially milled handle allows for a non-slip grip, letting you hold your light securely. The Precision Digital Optics Technology provides for extreme reflector performance, especially when using two LED's so they align perfectly to provide for optimal beam distances. Get even more beam clarity with the toughened ultra clear glass lens. Reverse polarity protection is also included so you don't have to worry about damaging your internal components when improperly inserting your AA batteries, for which the uses eight. As with many professional-grade Nitecore flashlights, this light is dust and waterproof in accordance with IPX-8 standards so you can dunk it in the water or leave it out in the desert and it will continue to provide unhindered lighting.

  • Made from aerospace grade HAIII military specification hard anodized aluminum

Hot light-literally!
October 20, 2014
I travel worldwide with a medical team and often find myself in remote parts of the world and basic services at best. Having a light that works on AA batteries is a plus as they are for the most part, readily available worldwide once you reach civilization. The ability to carry several AA batteries that are small is a plus and minimal weight as airline weight and other travel restrictions now days are a challenge. I use high quality AA rechargeables (2600MAH) and keep some AA lithium-ion batteries as back up in my travel kit in case I forget to charge my AA's batteries before I go. With the long shelf life of lithium batteries, you can leave them and forget them for years in a bug out bag and still have something that works when you need them. The ability to step down the brightness is a plus too as you can extend battery life, a very important feature if you are where there is no electricity. One issue I have not read in other reviews is the heat generated when the light is left on in the highest power setting for any length of time. In experimenting with different types of batteries, I found that within 20-25 minutes at normal room temps of 65-75 degrees F, the light can become so hot you really can't hold it in your bare hand. Lithium batteries that are 1.5 volts generate a little more heat than 1.2 volt rechargeables. As we often use our lights in illuminating wounds to treat patients, you may need to hold the light 30-40 minutes to say suture a wound. We had to glove up or wrap the light in a cloth to even hold it. The square shaped head is great to keep from rolling off a table and the like. We often need to light up a small room for patient assessment and there work great. Having two LED's is a plus just in case one should fail. Try and find a replacement anything when you are in a remote village of the Mountains of Nepal. Over all physical size adds to the usefulness of the light as it comes with a belt holder and case that is doable to carry all the time. Overall, a great light for the price, very functional and using AA batteries that are small and light weight and available worldwide are all pluses for this light.
Pros:
Small, powerful, abilitity to use AA batteries, square head to prevent rolling around and two LED's in case of one failing.
Cons:
Can get very hot with extended use on the highest power setting within 20-25 minutes in normal temps.

A Well Built & Plenty Bright Light With Leading Edge Style
October 3, 2014
4 years ago I purchased my first 2000 lumens single LED searchlight, a 2.5 pound affair that required a 1 pound proprietary battery, was rather large and heavy and not all that easy to tote around. The Nitecore EAX Hammer completely changes the game offering a solid, compact and durable light housing two of CREE's strongest and most efficient XM-L2 LEDs. And, you can very easily carry transport this light in a large pocket or backpack. Ohh yes, and it's the first (to my knowledge) 2000 lumens searchlight that takes common AA batteries (eight) and will work with either Nickel Metal or Alkaline. The first thing that I noticed upon receiving this light was it's unusual rectangular head shape housing the 2 LEDs side by side. Nitecore does a really good job optimizing both the hot spot for distance and beam spill for coverage in this light. I am outdoors a lot at night walking a heavily wooded paved nature trail and the elongated beam spill offers more than adequate light coverage for me to spot and avoid stumbling upon any night critters possibly lurking about. The light with batteries weighs somewhere in the vicinity of 20 ounces and with it's extremely well balanced handle, makes for easy carrying and maneuverability even after an hour plus of continuous use. Nitecore incorporates it's unique multifunctional camera focus and shoot style switch in the Hammer with plenty of light mode flexibility from 1 lumen all the way up to full on 2000 lumens turbo plus lock out. The switch itself also contains a multifunction LED that is a volt meter, low battery indicator and light locator in standby mode. It's water resistant to 2 meters and shock resistant to 1.5 meters making it rugged enough to withstand most extreme conditions. I now want to mention two issues that have encountered with this light; 1. The Switch From Hell: After installing the batteries for the very first time I began testing the modes in the light. Half press tap on the switch to put it into operation mode and micro (1 lumen) mode comes on. Cycle through the three additional modes by half press tapping the switch, works like a dream responding perfectly to each press. Turn off by full press tapping, voila!, like a charm. Triple tap press gets my strobe, full tap press to turn off, beautiful, home free right?. Then I go to lock it out. Half press and hold for a second till I see the light blink and the LED on the switch blinks to indicate 5.4 volts, tap the switch a few times to be sure that lock out mode is working and we're done. I tail stand the light and place it aside for no more than 30 second and suddenly I see the light come on full bright on it's own. I'm staring at it in wonderment as it then begins randomly cycling through different intensity levels, some lasting mere tenths of a second to as long as four or five seconds in others with no discernible pattern. Half or full pressing the switch did nothing at all. My Hammer had a mind of it's own. I did the only thing I could do and that was to disengage the power by removing the batteries and letting the light sit for about 30 minutes, reinstalling the batteries and the switch has performed flawlessly since for almost a week of heavy use. 2) Minor Issue: I've replaced the batteries in my light 3 times in one week and because there are eight of them 2 X 4 in parallel, it takes a bit of time going through the process. For that reason I may religate this light for mostly around the house and occasionally bring it out for trail walking use.
Pros:
*Durable & Very Bright *Compact *Uses Commonly Available & Relatively Affordable Rechargeable & Alkaline AA Batteries *Multifunctional LED In The Switch *Wide Spill
Cons:
*Balky Switch (one time, first time) *Changing Batteries Can Be Somewhat Time Consuming

This light seems to reach a country mile. It is not too heavy, is easy to use, and it damn sure won't roll.

NITECORE HAMMER
July 15, 2014
I've just purchased several of these Nitecore Hammer's for my collection and I rate this flashlight out of a 1-5 rating, a good 10. This light is much of use to me as I already have hundreds of AA rechargeable batteries and with all of the usable different levels of lumens. I am just overwhelmed with the usability of this flashlight. The CREE XM-L2 LED is a great emitter also. Nitecore and Battery Junction gets it done and I will make good use of both in the future.
Pros:
Looks good and feels good in my hands. Loaded with newest technology. Lets you know when batteries are low Good quality build. Just a perfect flashlight.
Cons:
None

Really Nice Light
July 10, 2014
Overall performance and mechanical quality is great, and it is especially unbelievably that this puts out 2000 lumens from the same batteries that power my television remote control.
Pros:
Excellent space between modes. Easy to use with the "two stage" switch management
Cons:
Having to use my 8-bay charger every once in a while
