    While i have no idea if it can or not, i doubt it can while maintaining those 860 lumens. The TK41, whic has a max of also 860 lumens, from what i understand, can run on 4AA (half of the 8AA required) in an emergency. This nitecore EA4 is already running just 4AA. Hard to think that it can get 860 lumens off of just 2AA. Maybe it can still run with 2AA, but not with the the turbo mode of 860? Anyone with more technical & electrical knowledge can chime in on my guess?

    Looking at the various pictures of the tailcap contacts and body, I don't know how it would work on two batteries. It appears to be a distinctly different electrical arrangement from the TM11 & TM15. My guess it that it would need a full compliment of cells to run.


    Looks like it's shipping in 1-2 weeks!

    Interesting that the Micro(?) setting is 65 lumens!

    Sounds good, mine said the same thing. I can wait that long...just barely!!I agree with everyone that 65 lumens is still a lot on low, but I didn't buy this bulky massive thing for sneaking around in the dark, that's what my H51, H502, LD12, LD22, Photon II, etc etc etc is for!

    I agree, but I normally carry my Streamlight Stylus Pro w/ me anyways for the small stuff, so 65 lumens will do. (I'm more intrested in the 800+ )

    EDIT: Eh, just got an e-mail from the vendor, says they're on backorder. Expected in stock on Dec 5. Guess I can wait...

    I'm waiting with bated breath for the reviews & pics on this one. Hope those of you have already ordered would be kind enough to post feedback & maybe even beamshots once you get your EA4.

    Don't have a aa light yet. This may be my first. I was curious if any knew what the output would be on alkaline batteries. Good to know in case of power failures. Im guessing it would be significantly lower lumens as well as run times. Any help or guesses would be appreciated.

    For emergencies, I keep a few packs of ultimate lithiums around. They last longer than alkaline, can handle a higher load, and don't leak (at least, I have never heard of them leaking).

    I've been waiting for this light for a LONG time!

    I just put in an order for three of these bad boys. Two of them will make excellent Christmas gifts (and so will the third; to MYSELF!!! ).

    The dealer mentioned above said they expect their order of 100 units late next week. As of my order, there are about 40 left for pre-order. Get them while you can!

    pretty tempting light, i just dunno if alkaline can keep up with the power demand to create the output, but i am sure lithium can do the job. Its crazy how in just one year or so my bc40 is out powered by a little light powered by regular old AA batteries, and only 4 of them too

    Why waste money and risk damage to the light using alkalines? Or spend quite a lot on lithiums when there is perfect power source - LSD NiMhs...

    Thanks for your suggestion. I thought I read there was a safety concern with lithium primaries...is that still the case???

    You're thinking of CR123A lithium primaries. Those are a different chemistry.

    Obviously there is risk with any battery, but - and please check me on this - I think AA and AAA-sized lithiums are fine.

    Cr123 lithium primaries are fine as well, as long ass you buy quality batteries all this battery fear is way exaggerated

    I would still exercise a little caution with any battery. I would never buy a pack of 20 lithium batteries for $5 off ebay. Chances are they are not going to be legit.
    What do you mean they blew up the death star.......... Wait....What the hell is an Aluminium Falcon?

    Well... I had been planning on waiting on some reviews and pictures of the EA4 before pulling the trigger, but.... but.... I caved. I scored one for $56 and now it's all about the waiting game.
