Made with the purpose of going outdoors with you, the EC23 is a light powered by one 18650 or two CR123As (sold separately) to shoot up 1800 lumens out to 255 meters out. With just one body switch to control everything, this flashlight will be easy to figure out and keep going for hours. In the head is the powerful CREE XHP35 HD E2 LED, which can show off a large area through flooding.

The EC23 is machined from aerospace-grade aluminum alloy. It has been knurled and hard-anodized so longterm use doesn't damage bare hands. The tailcap allows a lanyard to loop through, and is able to be used as a candlestand for when you want the EC23 to light up a room from one spot.
