I just checked…the lowest now is $51, after 5% BLF discount.

The lowest price is still $46.90 with PRICECONTROL coupon code:

Maybe it’s because I put a space between price and control? Only pricecontrol ?

I love Nitecore quote, If you don’t stop, we’ll “do sh*t strong” Party

When I ordered at $46, only CW available.
I also got an email that 80% they received are NW, so I chose NW.
They now have the NW on the web as NW U2, I am not aware of NW comes in U2,
I though the highest bin NW is T6, so if this does arrive as true U2 bin NW, it’ll be icing on the cake Smile

I have both and can’t see any meaningful difference in brightness. http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?351854-EA4-Cool-White... One way around the high battery drain in turbo is to have one in each hand on high pointed at the same target. :bigsmile:

Bouight mine 21st also..messaged them yesterday and received reply this morn that they were sold out..told em i was kinda pissed coz I bought one when they were taking orders and THEN many hours later after purchase it was marked sold out.

They stated the ad read because of problematic stock “7 days to deliver” I never saw that. Anybody see that on page when you ordered? I never order when I see such.

Said they will have new stock in “couple days”. dunno… |(

Only the price is the pro here. Not happy about the way sale was handled at all.

Hmm, also ordered on the 21st, after receiving the alert email from them, that it was in stock.  Not sure what to make of the below status.  Not going to worry about it until at least another week or two pass.

I'm sure this has been covered, so forgive me for asking, and feel free to ignore, but how how do these perform on 14500 batteries?

LOL!  Just found the manual, http://www.nitecore.com/UploadFile/Files/download/1-1_EA4_UM_EN.pdf

It's a shame it's not capable of handling 14500 batteries as well, but it will be good to have a very bright light that can run on primaries regardless.

Now if only FastTech would live up to their name and ship already...

well… you cant trust hk or chinese tracking numbers. i dont think i have ever had a reliable one.
i think it was the 18th before i realized they sent me a message about the NW stock thing, and after i said ill take a NW if possible, it was marked shipped the next day.

actually, the only reliable tracking numbers i have had lately is from madecov and the ones from me shipping stuff through ebay. this tracking BS lately is crazy

Most likely it means they ran out... took more orders than they had in inventory, and are now trying to get more in stock and to send out.

Price is good, so personally I'm just going to sit back and watch... I'm sure they will be able to fill the order in under 45 days, or they will refund on their own.

Just noticed that the Fasttech price for both EA4 and EA4W has gone back up to $69.95 on their site (but it still out of stock). Hopefully this will keep Nitecore happy and release stock to Fasttech (who can then send me the one I ordered last Sunday). :bigsmile:

Ordered EA4 Last Sunday, 20-21st. Received e-mail update this morning:

*Quote: “We are able to send your order within 24 hours, but since it’s weekend and Hong Kong Post is closed, so it may take up to 72 hours to show tracking data.”
*
So looks like the delayed shipments will be getting out by Monday HK time..LOL :bigsmile:

Thanks for posting those, I'am very glad to have chosen NW. It is amazing how much more 3-dimensional the beamshots with the NW emitter are... even in 2D. Wink (more depth perception)

Would you mind posting these also on BLF? Those should be also visible here.

Got impatient and emailed Fasttech, they said 7 business days for them to ship it out from the time of order.  Wednesday would be 7 days for me... so we'll see in a couple of days what's going on.

I'm glad to see they are getting orders out though.

It’s been 8 days today and have not heard about it….EA4 i.e.

They should at least update us and not leave hanging.

7 days or 8 days..if they aint got it..they can’t ship it.
