    NICE! Can't wait for the neutral white. May also wait on some beamshots/reviews, but don't hold me to that!
    GOOD TINT!

    Are there any dealers more familiar that have it in stock?

    It's now available on Amazon. But for the price, I can get two EA4 with coupon and make another person happy. .

    Eagletac is smaller, lighter, requires 1 less battery (albeit with reduced runtime), accepts li-ion batteries (for why?), has a tail switch. Not sure about build quality or quality control between the two companies. N̶i̶t̶e̶c̶o̶r̶e̶ ̶s̶e̶e̶m̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶a̶ ̶s̶l̶i̶g̶h̶t̶l̶y̶ ̶b̶e̶t̶t̶e̶r̶ ̶f̶u̶l̶l̶ ̶w̶a̶r̶r̶a̶n̶t̶y̶ ̶p̶e̶r̶i̶o̶d̶ ̶(̶1̶8̶ ̶m̶o̶n̶t̶h̶s̶ ̶v̶s̶ ̶1̶2̶ ̶m̶o̶n̶t̶h̶s̶)̶. Eagletac has a much better warranty (10 years vs 18 months).

    It looks like the GX25A3 is a different class of light with more thought put into it. I'm definitely interested in seeing reviews.

    Your comparison is invalid.

    The Amazon price is :

    GX25A3 : $95
    EA4 : $69

    When retailers finally start getting stock in supply,
    they too will reduce the price of the GX25A3,
    plus any additional CPF discounts.
    The GX25A3 will never be cheaper than the EA4.
    Eagletac is a class above Nitecore.
    The EA4 was designed to be a good budget light,
    and it has been very successful with that.

    I didn't make myself clear. I can get two EA4 with coupon but not on Amazon but on other retailers.

    With just a tad smaller in every dimension, there's no denying that they will be compared to one another since they use the same batteries.

    But I didn't say I don't like the light. Waiting for a good review about this light of how will it compare to the EA4.

    No you made yourself clear.
    You've taken the highest price from one place,
    and compared it to the lowest price from another place.

    I can get the GX25A3 for $85 from a known Eagletac retailer.
    Amazon has a listing for the EA4 for 1 million dollars.

    www.amazon.com/Nitecore-EA4-Pioneer One Million Dollars

    I can get 11,764 GX25A3 for the price of just 1 used EA4.

    That will make 11,763 friends of mine very happy . . .

    Lol. You added that listing to Amazon just to make a point? Hat's off to you good sir.

    Excuse me?? Nitecore's warranty is better? No way! Eagletac's warranty period is ten years!

    Don't I feel sheepish

    I mistook Eagletac's non-flashlight warranty as a "full" warranty and their ACTUAL warranty for a limited warranty. Guess that's another obvious plus for Eagletac... and makes their product seem like a much better value.

    well, on the video above GX25A3 has an optional tailcap.
    Here You are with a basic side switch.

    Will you guys run this light on AA batts or 14500?
    Eagletac told me; "The output is the same, however, the current will be regulated all the time when using 14500. So 14500 works better on A3."
    - So what will be the (other) advantage of 14500 over AA batteries.

    I am waiting for mkII. I need more modes, and less strobe.
    Nitecore has an updated special EA4 with the xm-l2. So ET probably has a revision in the works.
    Maybe their update with coincide with the xm-l2 U3 cool & U2 neutral. So it would arrive for the autumnal equinox...

    26k lux @1 m from 3AA! (same results with NiMH & 14500). Is that a new best for so few AA? Looks like the beam profile must be pretty similar to the EA4 from comparing lumens & lux:

    EA4: 21.5k lux, 770 lumens according to selfbuilt
    GX25A3: 26k lux, 915 ANSI lumens

    The review noted lux dropping by 32% after 3 minutes on NiMH, which I assume just reflects the 25% step-down in turbo. It will be interesting to see full runtime graphs and exactly how significant Eagletac's comments are about the flatter regulation on 14500.

    So 14500 works better on A3."
    - So what will be the (other) advantage of 14500 over AA batteries.
    I am not 'yet' convinced 14500 does off an advantage over Nihms.
    Selfbuilt is reviewing this light, but I can make some guesses here.

    Nihm : 3 x 1.2v = 3.6v
    Li-Ion : 3 x 3.7v = 11.1v

    On Turbo mode, a light goes into unregulated direct drive.
    So Nihm 3.6v where the XML LED is somewhere around 3.4v on Turbo is pretty good.
    So on Turbo with Nihms, no regulation is required.
    However, you cannot go direct drive with Li-Ion 11.1v,
    hence on Turbo, a buck circuit is required to regulate the light.

    A good pair of 2500mAh Nihms is gonna have a little more juice than 14500 Li-Ions.
    So if the Li-Ion can maintain flatline regulated brightness a bit longer,
    it is going to have a shorter runtime and produce more heat.

    The German review shows 26,000 lux for both Nihm and 14500,
    so they are the same initial brightness.
    Beyond that, Selfbuilt's runtime graph is going to be quite revealing!
    I do not own any 14500s, but I might get some depending on his results.

    Nitecore did not update the EA4, Illumination Supply had them slap in some XML2s.
    However, it's not a desirable tint and it's not much brighter.

    The GX25A3 is not even widely available yet.
    Eagletac is not gonna work on an MKII version anytime soon.
    It is unlikely for them to change the modes and strobe,
    they might release an entirely different model at that point.

    It is safe to get this light right now,
    without worrying about any unexpected future updates.

    The EA4 is tight as hell. I end up using my diffuser 90% of the time. If this is indeed tighter, I'll probably pass.
