Nitecore EA41 Explorer

I have had this light for a little over 6 months. To call it a flashlight is a bit of an understatement. It is also called a portable searchlight and that I can buy. With a maximum 1020 lumens and a beam distance of 376 meters, this light puts out quite a beam. It has the ability to put light out at 1020 lumens, 580 lumens, 50 lumens and 1 lumen.

It is certainly a tough light...I have dropped it in the lake (about 4 feet) and it has unfortunately went through a wash cycle on the washer and so far no damage. It has fallen out of my PFD onto the road, into dirt and so far the only harm is a few scratches.

It is the light I carry on my kayak 95% of the time and for early morning lighting duties this light is certainly up to the task. It can also be toned down to make a perfect reading or rigging light.

I don't think I would call this light a small light, nor an inexpensive light, but for what you get I am okay with it's price. Besides, if you look around you can find it for slightly less.

    • Yak-Power Battery Box Charging question
    • Yes. It will turn green with a full charge. Note that the box's power switch must he in the "on" position for the batteries to charge.
