I brought this flashlight with me to an excursion and a recent camping trip and I have had a lot of fun with this flashlight.It is a true thrower and it's modes cover up every situation you can possibly encounter, from indoors,upclose,mid range to long distance and I just love nitecore's way of making and design.
= EA8 CAVEMAN =
at the beginning I had a big dilemma whether to get this flashlight or the fenix tk41, but because I am a big fan of NITECORE and already own the EA4 PIONEER I was more interested in getting it's bigger brother the EA8. Having cleared that, I can say that I am very glad of the decision I took.
No disrespect to fenix at all! but in the end they are both worthy flashlights.
the nitecore ea8's is made from aircraft grade aluminium and with nitecore' s unibody type construction which means it is basically constructed entirely from one piece of alluminium, thus rendering the body of the flashlight much more resistant to impact and guaranteeing a higher protection level to it's core components.
The led is an XM-L U2 capable of a max output of 900 lumens which is also the ea8's max output declared by ANSI/FL1 official testing.
the reflector is made from nitecore's precion digital optics technology which defines a better and clearer beam patter and clean shape.
on top of that is a coated mineral glass which is protected by a stainless steel retaining bezel.
on the lower part of the head of the EA8 are a series of well made thermal fins to help dissipate any heat produced from usage.
just below the head of the flashlight is located the two stage button, a very unique type of button which consists of a normal full click and "half a click" .I was very sceptic about this type of button but it prove me wrong and is a very nice and fun type of button.I honestly admire new ways of interacting with your gear and this button is one of them.
there is no type of knurling on the flashlight's body rather there is a type of assimetrical type design that up until now in my experience has been failproof,I have had no problems with it at all and the comfort is truely surprising as it is rather lightweight considering it houses 8 and I repeat ,8 AA batteries.
the battery compartment can be accessed from the tailcap.because nitecore uses it's unibody construction there is no need of any sort of battrey carrier so the inner body is made of 4 small inner tunnels where the batteries simply slide in 2 at a time.
the flashlight can tail stand however with the lanyard attached it may wobble a bit, however due to the length of the flashlight it can be knocked over easily.the threadings of the tailcap come prelubrificated and there is a stress free lanyard hole on the tail cap.
there are 8 light modes:
micro 2 lumens
low 50 lumens
mid 180 lumens
high 590 lumens
TURBO 900 lumens
SOS + strobe + beacon mode ( all max output possible from batteries)
these modes are all accessed from different pressure clicks on the two stage button switch and are all easy to remember and user friendly.
one of the features that i love most of nitecore is it's location beacon, which consists of a blue light that blinks every 1.5 seconds showing you it's position in the dark, and nitecores battery voltage reading: when batteries are first inserted immediately the button will illuminate a blue blinking light as many time as the voltage of your batteries are. for example it it blinks 5 times, pauses one second then blinks three times , your battery voltage is 5.3 . I find them both very useful.
all together a H3LL of a flashlight !

I see other people complaining about the switch on this flashlight and I don't see the problem. You just need to read the instructions provided and it will make perfect sense. I have been using this flashlight for 5-6 days a week and it still works like the day I received it. No complaints here.
