I have 2 of these, one Nichia and one Cree. The Nichia has worked with no issues for almost a year now. The cool white Cree I got around Christmas. I bought it to mod, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I use the nichia frequently for night reading. I’ve been very impressed with the runtime off of one eneloop pro.

How’s the long term quality with these?

I’ve heard some lights just quit.

My Nichia version has been great. All this winter it’s been under my helmet lighting the bike lock under the bike lid, and then in beacon mode for the ride to the train station or bus stop. It’s had several months of EDC/bike winter usage with no issues yet. Just one anecdote.

Welp, I ordered one, so we’ll how I get on with it. I’ve been without a quality headlamp for a few years.

For anyone wondering about the E03H and whether or not it runs on 14500, I can say definitely that the Nichia 219C version I purchased new recently will NOT support 14500.

It seems to run on the 4-basic levels but just a short burst on Turbo or attempting to enter program mode will fry emitter. Facepalm

Nothing wrong with NiMH performance at all, quite nice as is, curiousity just killed the cat.

Seeking the light.

I have the E03H, and the E02. Is there an E02H? Or is that the same as the E02? I love both of these, they just exude quality! Enjoyed the review, thanks.
