I wouldn't go so far as to declare that all Nitecore lights are garbage. It's just that they've had a few more lemons than average. The EA4 was well received and mine still does just fine. The switch design was a little problematic, but they changed that for the EA41. The EC4GTS has been well received, a nice progression from the EC4GT (although parasitic drain is a bit high, so you'll want to lockout whenever possible).
I have personally seen way too many issues with Nitecore over the years. I respect your opinion but, mine is that they are one of the worst Chinese manufacturers. Personally, I would trust almost any other Chinese made flashlight brand over Nitecore(aside from Armytek). Its too bad too as they have some good ideas from time to time.
