Nitecore Released the EDC33: The Ultimate Tactical EDC Flashlight with Four Game-Changing Innovations

NITECORE today unveiled its year-end flagship product, the Tactical EDC Flashlight EDC33. This launch introduces four groundbreaking technologies: UHi 20 MAX LED, LUMIN SHIELD™, Rapid Lock™, and a 4,000mAh 18650 Li-ion battery, setting a new benchmark in the industry for professional EDC flashlights with its superior performance and user experience.


The UHi 20 MAX LED represents the first of its kind in the portable lighting industry — a professionally crafted unit with a multi-core integrated design for superior performance. Utilizing the UHi Fusion packaging technology, it combines a small yet high-intensive main core with 8 auxiliary cores arrayed together into a single LED, offering long-range coverage, extreme brightness, and the flexibility to seamlessly switch between spotlight and floodlight. Thanks to the Supreme White Color Consistency™ processing, it can emit a purer and softer white light.


The EDC33 features the first-ever LUMIN SHIELD™. When activated during night-time emergencies, the LUMIN SHIELD™ coordinates 9 LED cores to swiftly generate a 4000-lumen “light wall”, akin to a large shield for personal defense, offering an unparalleled experience in self-protection. In any mode except for the Full Lockout Mode, users can full press and hold the Tactical Tail Button to activate the LUMIN SHIELD™ for instant defense.


The EDC33 also introduces the innovative Rapid Lock™, ushering in a new phase of swift and seamless operation. Users can instantly access Full Lockout Mode, Half Lockout Mode and unlock the flashlight by simply sliding the Rapid Lock™, all in just one switch. The Full Lockout Mode ensures no accidental activation during storage or everyday carry, while for the Half Lockout Mode, users can activate SEARCH and LUMIN SHIELD™. Designed for intuitive use, the ergonomic design and layout of the Rapid Lock™ are tailored to improve quick responses in emergency situations.


NITECORE is taking a giant leap forward with the 4,000mAh 18650 Li-ion battery. Crafted in partnership with the industry partner, the EDC33 features a built-in 4,000mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery, offering a 14.4Wh high capacity with an energy density of 300mWh/g. This capacity is equal to the energy provided by four CR123A Li-ion batteries, effectively doubling the backup power, so users will never worry about the battery life.


The EDC33 also features Tactical SEARCH Mode with 450-meter long range coverage. In this mode, its main core will emit a powerful beam of 1,700 lumens, capable of illuminating areas up to 450 meters away, with an intensity of 54,500cd. This performance surpasses that of many compact flagship flashlights, providing users with the ability to discern distant objects or potential threats. The Tactical SEARCH Mode can be activated with ease except the Full Lockout Mode, enhancing rapid responses in various unexpected situations.


The EDC33 is engineered from 7000 series military grade aluminum (7075-T6), one of the strongest aluminum alloys available. It offers an 88% increase in hardness over standard 6000 series used in conventional flashlights, ensuring exceptional durability and a sturdy build. Coupled with a 1-mm deep textured finish, it also provides an outstanding grip during use. Other highlights include the stainless steel head and tail, HA III military grade hard-anodized finish, IP68 rating (2m submersible), ultra high corrosion resistance, and 2m impact resistance, making it a reliable companion in even the harshest conditions.


Packed with multiple features yet surprisingly lightweight, the EDC33 weighs only 127g (clip included), perfect for storing in the pocket during everyday carry. It includes a large-hole DCP (Deep Carry Pocket) Clip and a high-quality 550 paracord, allowing users to easily stow the flashlight deep within the pocket and enabling quick draw.


Additionally, the EDC33 is equipped with sensor protection function, rotary protection cover, optical lenses with double-sided scratch resistant coating, and an ATR (Advanced Temperature Regulation) module.
