Awesome light! February 10, 2019
Reviewer: Jeremy Davis from Pittston , PA United States  
I used the concept 1 as the every day carry til one day I got it stuck in a forklift. I hated the rocker switch on the C1 and so far love the button on the ec30.  Also love the battery indicator .   Nitecore lights are the absolute best!  Only lights I use!  I have a full arsenal of them

Undecided January 20, 2019
Reviewer: Tim from Plantation, FL United States  
Been using Streamlight 1L-1aa and really like it. Saw this, marginally larger and 5x’s brighter had to give it a shot. The beam should be more focused for a better throw. Not wild about the operation. I like a tailcap switch. I dont like the pocket clip, the flashlight should sit lens down and lower in my pocket. I love the run time  and close in it is seriously bright. Like it, dont love it, but its new to me. Maybe that will change.

Nice EDC November 26, 2018
Reviewer: Marc from Richmond,VA  
This is my first Nitecore product and so far I like it. I have a lot of Olight flashlights and like them a lot , but the runtime on all of their flashlights for max brightness is very short. This is one of the reasons I decided to try Nitecore. Having a flashlight with high lumens is nice, but only if it actually last longer than a couple minutes. I haven’t tried it but 30 minute runtime @ 1800 lumens is very impressive.
