Nitecore EC30 Explorer Series LED Flashlight

Eight Output Modes

Featuring not one, not three, but five brightness options, in addition to the three specialty modes, the Nitecore EC30 Flashlight is a showcase of illumination technology. Turbo mode cuts through the dark with up to 1800 lumens of bright, uninterrupted shine. Don't be afraid to take it down a notch, high mode still offers a powerful 810 lumens for nearly triple the time of turbo. One lumen may seem little compared to those numbers, but you'll be happy to have over 300 hours of light with the ultralow setting. The Strobe, SOS, and Beacon modes offer crucial tactical and survival functionality to an already impressive flashlight.

Everyday and Tactical Usage

Showcasing so many modes, the Nitecore EC30 Flashlight offers two operation settings for you to get the best use of your flashlight. The 'Daily Mode' provides quick access to the ultra-powerful 1800 lumen turbo mode with a simple triple-click of the side switch. While in 'Tactical Mode', the same triple-click will bring you directly to the strobe mode. Swapping modes is as simple as a twist of the magnetic tailcap. An LED light will signal which mode you're using, before reverting back to an intelligent scaling battery and voltage indicator.

Ultra Compact, Ultra Durable

Would you believe us if we said all those features came in a flashlight that fits in your pocket? Under five inches long, the Nitecore EC30 Flashlight gives you eight output modes in the palm of your hand. Masterfully crafted with intelligent circuitry, a user-friendly side switch, high-grade anodized aluminum and crystal-coated lens, this flashlight is compact, durable, and light to the touch.

Great Light! Control Needs Getting Used To..
April 22, 2020
Top notch as usual from Nitecore -fit and finish is excellent. Very Bright. Great throw. Magnetic tailcap is very useful!
Not your typical "click for each level" switch button though -a "modernizing" of control selection. Stays on lower levels and comes on high only while you're holding the switch button down. Makes complete sense once you've tried it in a real world situation, i.e., indoors, e.g., clearing a room and don't want "bounce back" blinding you. High is available immediately with a press on the switch button. Play with the switch button a few times and it'll be intuitive.
The design is forward-thinking, an exercise in what the future (at the time it was released) held for Nitecore. It is battery efficient and generates a great deal of lumens for it's size/battery. The switch "map" has changed to what might be the new operating standard. The only thing dated about the light is that it uses the 18650 instead of the newer higher capacity offerings. That was fine for me as I have a ton of these batteries and can change them out for freshly charged ones fast and easy.
I'm very happy with this purchase! Great customer service as usual too from Battery Junction.
Excellent light
