Nitecore EC4GT LED Flashlight

Incredibly Far-Reaching!

An enhanced version of the EC4, the Nitecore EC4GT LED Flashlight is a potent combination of imposing power and intelligent design. Powered by either a pair of 18650 batteries or four CR123As, the EC4GT uses its upgraded CREE XP-L HI V3 LED to generate up to 1000 Lumens of stunning brightness, which can throw as far as 475 meters thanks to the light's deep metal reflector. The light also features 4 dimmer constant brightness settings, as well as three specialized tactical outputs; Strobe, S.O.S., and Location Beacon. Operating the EC4GT is a breeze thanks to the light's easy-to-use dual side switch interface, using its power switch to activate and deactivate the light and using the mode switch above to cycle through all 8 outputs. The power switch even doubles as a power indicator so you can keep track of the light's charge.

Innovative Design

Perhaps upstaging the EC4GT's impressive output is its truly unique and sophisticated design. Crafted from lightweight and sturdy aero grade aluminum alloy, the EC4GT is one of the few flashlights with a die-cast unibody, meaning the main body is one solid piece. The unibody design gives the flashlight enhanced structural integrity, providing exemplary impact and water resistance. The body also features a rhombic knurling for a stronger grip and cooling fins to help dissipate heat and prevent overheating from extended use. The EC4GT's flat tailcap allows it to stand upright for candle lighting and even features a thumbscrew lock that can double as a tripod connector to provide another hands-free lighting option. The light features Advanced Temperature Regulation (ATR) Technology and reverses polarity protection, so the EC4GT is equally protected from internal damage.

Limited Edition Bezel

In addition to its standard all-black design, the EC4GT is available with limited edition colored bezels (Red and Blue), which make it unlike any flashlight of its kind and sure to stand out. Each limited edition light comes with a unique serial code, as proof of the rarity of your purchase. With only 1000 of each color manufactured, saying supplies are limited would be an understatement, so grab yours before they run out!

Amazing Beam Throw, build quality not as good as EC4or EC4SW
July 7, 2016
The light throw distance for thsi torch is amazing! 18650 batteries that are from laptop battery packs will not work in it though. Only
the protected Nitecores worked for me. The bezel is a lower quality screw on piece compared to the machined bezel for the EC4 or EC4GT.
I wanted the new Cree LED this light offered and it is very powerful. Would have liked Nitecore to keep the same build philosophy as their other
models in the series. As the another reviewer stated, the strike bezel is not an option for this torch.

Great Upgrade

Love it, upgraded LED from the EC4 without any real price premium. Comes in a high quality box, and most important, the buttons feel softer and easier to press than both the EC4 and EC4S.
  • All the above
  • a super minor issue, but it is not compatible with the aggressive tactical Bezel

best light yet
June 7, 2017
I own many high powered lights and this tops them all! Light, powerful, batteries last long time, switch is on front top, comes with sheath, it beats my Olight R-40 seeker all to pieces ; its supposed to be 1100 lumen. Many lights do not come close to their stated lumens but this one does. This is my second Nite-Core and both are as stated or more so lumens, and guality. Looks like I have found my new brand. Also lights have a natural spill and so you lose on throw. This one has incredible throw and just enough spill. I have been trying to find such a light , spot, light, powerful, and great build with less spill for a long time. Thanks NiteCore you have hit this one out of the park. I have already had three people that are buying one on my say so!
  • Everything
  • none that I can find.

Better than expected but not perfect.

Bought this light for walking my dog and it's performance is great. Super long throw for the size with enough spill to see where you need. The UI is fantastic with shortcuts to turn the light on in either low or high mode. Nice voltage check function.

This light will kill unprotected cells and won't work at all with flat top batteries. This makes it a bit more expensive to operate than it needed to be.
  • Great UI
  • Great performance
  • Adequate build quality
  • No low voltage protection
  • Only works with button top batteries
  • Batteries rattle inside light
