I would have bought one but the voucher code doesn’t work anymore

It worked when I tried last nite…coupon code was PRICECONTROL which brought it down to $46.90, best darn price around.

The EA4W I got earlier from them is fantastic.

Streamer, how is that possible if the Nitecore Ea4 has not been in stock at Fasttech for weeks? I know because I’ve monitored it for weeks. Not in stock.

EA4W was in stock for a few hours yesterday. I checked the coupon code and it still worked then (only one left then, sold out now). You can only check the coupon code if the item can be added to you cart. Out of stock items cannot be added.
I kept one in my cart and it’s still there; coupon is still good Wink

Welcome the night.

There was some EA4W in stock last night. I nearly bought one but I’ll wait for the EA4.

Thanks for the information^.
Looks like I will just enjoy my current EA4W and instead of getting a second, I’ll save toward the EA8 :).

Coupon code worked yesterday... otherwise I would have ordered one from Craig instead.

I did discover much to my disappointment, the BLF coupon no longer works on batteries though Sad  It did when I placed my first or second order with FT.

I have not seen applied it to batteries because I’ve never bought fewer than three at a time; the bulk discount kicks in which is much more than the BLF 5% discount.

I just checked, on my second order from them, I only got two sets, not enough for the quantity discount, but I did have 5% come off for the BLF coupon, on batteries.  Both pricecontrol and blf coupons worked on the ea4w, but did not stack.

For anybody still wanting to buy one from FT, click on "get an alert" on the product page, enter your email address and you'll be notified when it's back in stock.

How is what possible?

The EA4 W was in stock when I posted above. Not the EA4. They were and are two seperate listings.

The EA4W I got was delivered on Feb 8.

Does this answer your question?

EA4 vs EA4W, which one do you recommend?

Personally for a mid range light like this I think NW - EA4W is the better option.  Most people I know also prefer NW, but it really is a matter of personal preference.

I find that the clarity, and ability to discern more details, with a NW tint, outweigh the few extra lumens you get with a cool white emmiter.  Cool white throwers do produce a nicer looking beam in fog... but if you're after a beam, you'll be better off with a laser.

I went NW, which is still well above 5200k I would say. Much cooler than a 3C emitter. Also, the output should be the same for both EA4 and EA4W; both use a U2 emitter.

Welcome the night.

Can one model be perceived to be brighter than the other? All other things being equal, of course.

I think the general consensus with NW vs CW is that CW is slightly brighter, but NW is softer to the eyes and therefore more eye-friendly.

Done! I know I’m telling the wrong crowd here, but this is the most I’ve ever paid for a light- by 25 bucks or so.

I think you’ll be happy.

NiceCore’s lights are of a pretty decent quality. I just wish it didn’t have its ridiculous MAP pricing. Sad

This was my first expensive light as well. I’ve always owned $10 lights. It’s a great light for those that don’t want to invest in non-AA batteries.

Was my first “premium” light purchase also… Was well worth it. You’ll love it

Thanks for the reassurances. I was torn between either this or the King on which to get first, and this one seems much more practical for the time being. Plus I’d have to add another $15 to $20 onto the price of the King to account for batteries.

I just got my EA4. Great light, pocketable and throws a mean beam for 4xAA :bigsmile:

But I’m not sure I received EA4W (NW version). The box says “EA4 U2 SMO”. How do you know which version is it?

Keychain flashlights FTW!

Paranid, it should say EA4W on the side of the light. Mine came in an EA4 box.
