Nitecore EA41 - good throw
December 18, 2018
Pro - Throw is a good 400 yards. Lightweight. Comes with 2100 mAh batteries (which I think they are the LSD).

Con - The springs inside the holder are to long, they need to be shorter. To much pressure on the battery terminal ends and they are being push inward. This was the same thing that was happening with my Fenix TK70 (4-D cell), had to shorten the spring cuz the battery ends where being push so far that they wouldn't make contact.
The buttons for operation are different than what's on my Nitecore TM16 & EA41. It will not go direct to strobe unless the light is turned off, where as with the 16 & 41 the lights can be on or off and still go directly to the strobe.
