The NITECORE EC23 is a high-performance compact flashlight utilizing a CREE XHP35 HD E2 LED to emit a scorching 1800-lumen output. One of the brightest flashlights of its size, the lightweight and compact EC23 can be easily stored in pockets, packs, or bags for quick access to light anywhere you go. Powered by a single IMR 18650 battery, the EC23 has a max runtime of 330 hours and max beam intensity of 16,200 making it perfect for outdoor use and everyday carry.

An innovative all-in-one control switch on the flashlight’s side allows easy one-handed operation of five brightness levels and three special modes. The addition of a tail stand provides the ability to light up an area and frees up hands for working or manoeuvring. A combination of features such as Advanced Temperature Regulation which regulates output and adapts to the ambient environment and an IPX8 rating ensures the EC23 is a premium EDC flashlight for all-weather applications.

Note: The EC23 requires an 18650 battery with >8A output for the full output range. We recommend using the NITECORE NL1835HP 18650 battery which can be added via the dropdown menu. In a pinch, the EC23 can also be powered by normal 18650 batteries, 2x CR123 or 2x RCR123 batteries. However, the light might shut off at the Turbo or high setting when using CR123As or 18650s with lower than 8A output.
