The Nitecore EA45S is manufactured using a casting method of injecting molten aluminium under high pressure into a mould cavity. Benefits of this manufacturing process include much improved heat sinking due to the lack of separate parts, allowing the heat to dissipate through the whole body. The EA45S is light weight at only 132.5 grams and incredibly slim for a torch using four AA batteries, making it comfortable to hold and carry for long periods.
Featuring a Cree XP-L HI V3 LED housed inside a smooth polished reflector, which produces a concentrated beam that can reach over 400 meters.
Powered by 4xAA (alkaline or NiMH) batteries. This torch cannot use 14500 Li-ion batteries.
Brightness levels and runtimes based on 4xAA NiMH 1.2V 2450 mAh batteries :
- Turbo 1000 lumens - 45 minutes
- High 430 lumens - 2 hours 45 minutes
- Mid 210 lumens - 7 hours
- Low 45 lumens - 35 hours
- Ultralow 1 lumen - 416 hours
- Plus Location, SOS and Strobe modes.
The dual side switch incorporates a blue light power indicator that displays the remaining battery power. A large rear thumbscrew lock securely holds the battery cover in place and the flat base makes for easy tail standing.
The EA45S has a 34mm head making it compatible with many of the Nitecore accessories including red, green and blue filters plus diffuser and traffic wand.
Maximum beam distance 402 meters, waterproof to IPX-8 (submersible to 2 meters) and resistant to impacts from 1.5 meters.

If like me your looking for a super bright torch but without the weight and bulk of most torches along with a genuine trusted company to buy from then i would honestly recommend this the Nitecore ea455 from Flashaholics .This torch is absolutely amazing and really does what it says on the tin 100% . It requires 4 x AA batteries so i simply use Duracell Duralock 2500mah rechargeable which really do the job perfectly . It has five brightness settings and feels great in the hand ( does not get hot but slightly warm on full power ) and OMG that beam on full power is superb .I called flashaholics before i ordered just for piece of mind and they were friendly and professional in answering my questions so all good on that point .Hope this has been a helpful review for many .Thank you from all at MaxsoundCaraudio Uk
