    Nitecore EA41 Reviews

    Explorer EA41 LED Compact Searchlight is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fat is good. Fat and chubby body style is an odd plus. Makes it easy to find when fishing around for it in your car's glove compartment in full darkness. Included lanyard is a thoughtful and valuable plus. Nylon carry pouch is above average quality. Fit and finish top shelf. Throws a powerful beam a long way. Use of find 'em anywhere AA batteries another plus.Only criticism I have is that the body mounted control buttons are small and hard to find by touch.(Like at night, when you use a flashlight, duh). I suspect buttons would be very hard to use when wearing gloves. No tail cap switch of any kind. Overall, a lot of light at a not to big price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great initial impression I just got the Nightcore EA41 compact searchlight in the mail. The mechanical design and construction looks top-notch. Controls are ergonomic, and well thought out. It's very bright, and the optics produce a good beam. The amount of light and the quality of the beam is something that I would expect from a light that was more expensive and much more bulky. The fact that it uses AA batteries, fits in a pocket, and is relatively inexpensive just makes it that much more impressive to me. Can't rate the durability or battery life, as I just took it out of the box. Low and medium light output modes were more than enough for anything at close range, so that's a plus for battery life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great light for night photography I purchased this light to help me in my night photography. I wanted a light that would light up objects enough in the dark that I could get a good focus point on my camera. I was able to shine the light on my tent a get a good focus point about 10 meters away. The light is strong enough that I was able to get a nice light beam shot in the first photo example, and in the second example, I was able to light up the tent in the sunrise shot. I found my flashlight to be very well built.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nitecore has a winner The EA41 is a great light. Well made. Ample power for a variety of situations. Very simple and intuitive UI. I use the light primarily for taking the dog for walks. Full power is great in a wide open field. One of the medium settings is more useful in the woods. The 1 lumen setting is particularly useful if you tend to get up in the middle of the night. To my eye, the 510 and 960 settings are very close in perceived power. Not a negative, just an observation. The light fits comfortably in a jacket pocket. The fact that it uses AA batteries is a definite plus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny! Easier to use than other super-brights I've tried. Best switch ergonomics I have found. No end button makes for easy carry in pack, pocket, or belt holster. So far it has been used for car repair, checking out noises in the woods, and finding lost articles in the yard. It has become my serious home do-everything light.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full featured power in a compact light Extremely impressed with the feature and performance of Nitecore products. This is the 3d light I have purchased in the Nitecore series and I am once again very impressed. The light is very versatile and exceeds all expectations. It is extremely bright for a light which runs from 4 AA batteries. Impessed with easy two button system that allows instant options for a variety of lighting options including strobe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright Eyes! Wow! Uses AA battery, which is very convenient. Strong housing. Super Bright. Outstanding Beam. Happy Customer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bright flashlight I was getting beam envy and wanted to find a reasonably-bright flashlight without breaking the bank. This fits the bill. I like the low-lumens setting -- I find I use it mostly at the 1 or 50 lumen settings. but it's nice to have 1000 lumens when you need it. And I like running on AA batteries. While I might carry the light a lot, I don't *use* it enough (particularly at 1000 lumens) to justify the hassle of dealing with rechargeable Li, or needing to locate/buy exotic batteries.
