Nitecore EC22 Infinitely Variable Brightness LED Flashlight

Ideal EDC Light

Featuring a compact design and a one-of-a-kind interface, the Nitecore EC22 Infinitely Variable Brightness LED Flashlight is one of the most innovative EDC lights on the market! At just over 5 inches long and only an inch in diameter, this tiny torch can be comfortably stored in your bag, glove compartment, or even your pocket for every day carry. The durable aluminum light is waterproof and impact resistant, so it's ready for the wear and tear of everyday use in just about any environment. The EC22 comes with a variety of handy accessories to make carrying even easier, including a nylon holster, removable pocket clip, and lanyard.

Choose Your Perfect Brightness Level

While it may be small in stature, the EC22's output is anything but small. The powerful torch is capable of emitting up to 1000 Lumens of light and a beam that can throw further than 600 feet! That's quite a punch for such a small package. Rather than being limited to a handful of preset brightness levels, this innovative flashlight uses a unique rotary switch that lets you adjust its brightness to your exact preference. By rotating the body switch, you can brighten and dim the EC22's beam anywhere between its max brightness and 0.5 Lumens, giving you full control of the output. This versatility, when combined with its power and compact design, make the Nitecore EC22 the optimal EDC light for any user!

Make it Rechargeable!

The Nitecore EC22 infintely variable flashlight is now available with everything needed for it to reach its full potential. For its power source, we've paired the EDC flashlight with an 18650 battery with built-in charge port.

Compact carry
May 18, 2018
After using this light for a week I am generally satisfied. The beam is broad and focused. Weight and size are well within my limits. It has dropped, from two or three feet, twice without any sign of damage or marking. For my way of handling and using a small light, I prefer having the on/off switch at the back end of the light. Over time I may adjust to the wheel switch. Overall I am satisfied with the light and would buy it again.

Typical nitecore
April 19, 2018
As is typical with nutecore it is a nice light. This is my 3rd varaibale nitecore. I had to buy the 2nd because the 1st started to flicker a lot (and I wanted the newer one) The sccond broke when I droped it about 2 feet and nitecore would not respond to my emails. I bought a jetbeam to carry. This light is compact and easy to carry. Brightness is about the same as the SRT 5 the center of the beam is square. The EC 22 does flicker when moving the control.
ProsNice bright little light. Fits my pocket well Typical nitecore quality Good price
