Nitecore EA11 overview

  • 1Description

Nitecore lets you pierce the night with 900 lumens from their EA11 Explorer LED Flashlight. 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 with an IMR14500 battery. Operation is also possible with a single AA battery. You can also directly select a red LED to not disrupt your eyes after they have adjusted to the dark. Enhancing the versatility of this unit, there are 3 different emergency strobe patterns. A dual switch interface allows you to easily toggle between modes. You will always know exactly how much battery power is left, compliments of the indicator LED.

Protecting this light's internal workings is an anodized aluminum alloy housing that is built to withstand the rigors of everyday carry and usage. Scratch and impact-resistant tempered mineral glass with anti-reflective coating keeps the LED emitters safe. Impact resistant to 4.9', this light features an IPX8-rating so it is submersible to 6.6'. Heat diffusing fins built into the head help prevent overheating and specialized circuitry automatically steps down the output to prevent heat damage to the light. Reverse-polarity protection ensures you don't damage the light by installing the batteries incorrectly. Two lockout modes help prevent accidental activation and conserve battery power.

    Nitecore EA11 reviews

    EA11 Explorer LED Flashlight is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tiny tactical flashlight! It puts out 900 lumens with the nitecore li-ion battery, enough to disorient a mugger or a bear. 165 lumens with a regular aa battery. Perfect size Gets hot at 900 lumens, but you wouldn't need it for long. Get the nitecore batteries and digi D2 charger, and you are set!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect EDC Flashlight Well made, really solid (no plastic here) feel, incredible light output with a 14500 Lithium battery. Perfect size for every day carry. I really like the number of lighting levels - the dimmest mode seems like joke until you use it in total darkness (like to get to the generator transfer switch when the power goes out in the middle of the night), and then it seems perfect. The only thing that I wish this flashlight had would be the on/off switch located on the tail cap - but I suppose I'll get used to it being on the barrel :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent EDC Big light in a small size, shirt pocket EDC. The common AA batteries are adequate but I keep a pair of 14500's handy for a really bright beam if needed. I like the ease of use of the side buttons rather than the tail switch on many of the lights I have previously purchased. My best pocket light yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from pocket powerhouse rechargeable battery ran down suddenly, not sure it provided the full length specified. lots of brightness settings to choose from, some extremely bright. very compact. red LED preserves night vision well. haven't tried it with standard AA batteries yet.
