It is a nice quality light with not too many or not enough features. The user interface is different, which nicely breaks up UI boredom.
    USB chargeable protected 21700 is a long cell. Solder spring on top of unprotected cell also works. Factory 4 x XP-L. 4,000 lumens, 261 meters throw.

    I also got the Nitecore TM9KVn, 21700, 9 x stock XP-L2 6500, Jan. 6, 2020, 9,500/268M factory specs, because Nitecore decided that the general public was ready for a slightly larger single 21700 light with 9,500 turbo lumens.

    My third Nitecore light is the TM06Svn modded to 4 x XHP50.2. 9,800 lumens from it was a lot of lumens for its size in May 2017. I have studied many other Nitecore offerings that would have been great to buy. I consider Acebeam, Fenix, Nitecore and Olight (and other similar) to be right on the price/quality spectrum that I like.

    Please post back and tell us how you like it.
    Just got the E4K. First impressions: this light is a tiny powerhouse. It's the same length as my Fenix PD30 R4 (which takes shorter 123A cells). I haven't had time to charge the included battery yet, but with a 15 amp rated unprotected 18650 (salvaged 12 from a bad 9 amp 18 volt Milwaukee battery) with a rare earth magnet (from Harbor Freight) on the positive contact, all brightness settings work at full power. Glad to see I don't have to spend $30 a battery for spares to get the turbo setting to work. U.I. will take some getting used to. Not a fan of a delay in turning it on, but it offers a little protection from accidental activation. I like that you can access low first despite the memory function (double click) and that you can bump it up to turbo temporarily when on without cycling through other modes (holding down the button). Don't like having to turn the light off and on again with a delay to change settings. Overall, a great light, but will take some getting used to. Would probably leave it on one setting the whole time for a hike and use the momentary turbo when needed.

    I`m still waiting for my Sofirn SC01, Sky lumens LEP, EDC18 and OTR M3 Pro. Then I think i`m calling it quits for this year, I have about 50 LED lights now all with batteries in them so it`s time to slow down a bit I think.

    Nitecore MH20GT
    Olight Warrior Mini (Desert Tan)
    2 clips made for the Olight i3E EOS
    Couple of 18650 batts.

    Bought barely any new lights this past year. The two above are likely going to be it for a long while. Not a budget thing. Just nothing new interests me, lately.

    Nitecore MH10 v2 flashlight, 5000 mAh Klarus 15 amp rated 21700 cell, Klarus USB charging cap for Klarus ST15 flashlight. My previously purchased Nitecore E4K doesn't have built in charging and spare batteries are $29 each. I figured for the cost of a little more than 2 batteries, I could get another light with built in charging that comes with one and a high amp rated battery as a spare to use for either light. Then I could buy cheaper batteries from here on.

    Seraph SP-9 Turbo. I've got a couple SP-6's and like them a lot, figured the SP-9 Turbo was worth a shot.

    Bought a mini Maglite AAA (incan, not the LED version) because it looks like someone shrunk down a regular size Maglite with a shrink ray into mini format, and itís probably the cutest flashlight ever.

    Itís surprisingly a lot better than it has any right to be, and quite a bit brighter than I expected too. Itís actually quite usable.

    Fraz Labs Lumenite 18650. Iím pretty excited about the purported simplistic durable nature of these lights.

    I bought a Convoy C8 host, not that I need one with an FT03 but it is a classic and I`m sure I have enough spare parts to make up a good light with it

    I used to chuckle at comments about how a match stick is brighter than the 2 lumen incan solitaire, then see comments in the LED section how a 0.5 lumen light was too bright.
    The incan solitaire is great for close up work or inspection of a shiney narrow tube like a flashlight barrel. It gets dull as the battery depletes though. Great for 2am nature calls or sneaking off to the fridge for those midnight snacks your doctor speaks against without waking the cat or talking bird.
    Speaking of batteries be sure and feed it ultimate lithiums instead of alkalines. Eneloops work well too.

    Four lights in the mail:

    1. Astrolux FT02S single 26650, 4x XHP50.2 shipped a few hours ago.
    2. Another FT02S shipped a few hours ago, on its way to my favorite modder, where it will become a FT02Svn 4x SBT90.2. This will be the first single cell multiple 90.2 light. Sort of like a micro GT94.
    3. Nightwatch NSX53vn in the mail a few hours ago. This will be my second sample of this rear clicky single 21700 triple 50.2 light. Beam profile and performances are almost identical to the much beloved F21Pro, but with longer cooling fins.
    4. Imalent MS06vn in the mail a few hours ago. I have had my eye on this dedicated flooder for a few months, but when my favorite modder finally got his first sample, I latched onto it.
    I think this is the first time Iíve ever had four lights in the mail. There have been a few times when Iíve had three.

    Also in the mail: a pair of lithium ion battery electric gloves, a Spanish missal and four Vapcell S4 chargers. The S4 charger is 12 amps for four slots, up to three amps per slot, all at the same time, slot length accommodates button top 21700. They will replace my two VC8 chargers. The electric gloves hopefully will help with my fingers during my daily seven mile walks; I lost 30% of my body weight five years ago, and cold fingers are the only untoward side effect of that. My church stopped providing missals due to Covid, so itís bring your own.

    Seems strange to have something "incoming".
    Aside from a recent Zebralight purchase, I haven't bought anything flashlight-related since 2013, except batteries.
    So I ordered some more batteries. Just half a dozen 18650s, and a pair of R123s. And a charger. Ok, two chargers. And a couple of McClicky switches. And some parts, o-rings, and a spare lens for my Malkoff MD2, and a set of o-rings for a Malkoff Hound Dog head, and a Malkoff Hound Dog to have something to have spare o-rings for, and...gotta go, I have internet shopping to do!

    Something I have had an eye on for several months is incoming - an Imalent MS18.

    I have need of a tactical flashlight, and saw a video on this flashlight and had to have it. There is a certain "toyish" aspect to purchasing it - who wouldn't want to have such a bright light for the fun of it? But also, there is a serious purpose.

    Cheers!
