Nitecore EC4 (2X18650/4XCR123A, XM-L2)

Nitecore EC4 is a compact and good heat transmission flashlight. Perhaps not impressive for some people, but for me, yes it is. Keep a flat lane for more than 950 lumenes for about 2 hours. Not time step down, thermal management… Is very confortable and lightweight, I have not sensations of 2×18650 flashlight in my hand.

The complete review in spanish here: http://luxlinternas.blogspot.com.es/2015/07/nitecore-ec4-2×18650-xm-l2-u2.html

About great heat transmission, I have meassured temperature in Celsius degrees in turbo mode (little fan assisted) on head flashlight and over mid Body surface, you can see the results:

Runtime with 2×18650 3400mA battery;

The standard tripod thread is useful and is compatible with defensive elements like the SUNWAYMAN or JETBeam spike:

Nice review – thanks. These flat lights are surprisingly comfortable – I have a Jetbeam PA40 which is great in the hand.
