Nitecore EC11 Overview

  • 1Description

Despite measuring less than 3", the EC11 Explorer LED Flashlight from Nitecore delivers up to 900 lumens. With a white CREE XM-L2 (UL) LED as the primary emitter, this light has five brightness settings ranging from 1 lumen up to 900 when an RCR123 battery is installed. Enhancing the versatility of this unit, there are 3 different emergency strobe patterns. A dual switch interface allows you to easily toggle between brightness settings, red light, and strobe modes. You can also directly select turbo and minimum modes from the off position so you don't have to cycle through modes to get the desired output.

Operation is also possible with CR123A batteries, which allow for lesser outputs and longer run times. Two lockout modes help prevent accidental activation and conserve battery power. When in standby, the red light flashes every 3 seconds so you can easily spot it. You will always know exactly how much battery power is left, compliments of the indicator LED.

Made of type 3 anodized aluminum alloy, this flashlight is scratch and corrosion resistant. It is impact resistant when dropped from heights up to 4.9', and is submersible to 6.6'.

    Nitecore EC11 Reviews

    EC11 Explorer LED Flashlight is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great EDC light. Nitecore is my favorite brand of high intensity light and this is one of my favorite styles. There are some trade offs due to its small size. Don't expect to operate it on Turbo for very long because it gets burning hot. Its 18350 battery has much lower capacity than the slightly larger Nitecore HC30's 18650 battery. The purse locator beacon, long term intermittent low power red light, has limited value since you can't use it in standby and it's almost guaranteed to turn on in your purse or backpack. The built in voltmeter is very nice. The twist end cap enable/disable isn't any harder than an on/off button.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory! Although I have several small flashlights, this is the one that will hang on my camera case.  Love the small size and the case with loop.  The lowest setting is great for checking controls in a night shoot and the higher settings  for light painting.  The only downside would be the use of CR123 batteries - not readily available at you neighborhood C store.  Goes with my gear everywhere!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent size to brightness ratio!!! Great light for the size vs. brightness!! I've used it in the outdoors & indoors. Does not have all the convenience features in other lights including Nitecore lights but it serves its purpose & that's being small, lightweight, & extremely bright! In fact there's not many lights that come close to this for the number of lumens & at this size.
