    "?"-column:
    u = v1.00 firmware can remain unchanged. changes are unnecessary at this point in time!
    y = yes, has been changed according to prior suggestion, congrats!
    n = negative. suggestion has been considered and discussed but discarded for now, sorry!

    WOW, that is some heavy info. Nice work

    thanks biglights!

    i plan to update this interesting top list once in a while when i observe major or plenty changes in either list. The Nitecore E-series has certain potential to enter the Front Page or the Reviews Top 20, imho.

    I agree I have the EC1 and it is pretty awesome! Was thinking about getting the EA2 or maybe wait for EC2.

    This list must of took a lot of time.
