Introducing the EDC35 Tactical EDC Flashlight

January 23rd 2024

NITECORE today unveiled its year-end flagship product — Tactical EDC Flashlight EDC35, offering upgraded performance and user experience.

The UHi 40 MAX LED represents the second 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 EDC35 features a 5000-lumen LUMIN SHIELD™. When activated during night-time emergencies, the LUMIN SHIELD™ coordinates 9 LED cores to swiftly generate a 5000-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 EDC35 also introduces Tactical SEARCH Mode. Users can activate the SEARCH mode from any status except Full Lockout Mode by half pressing and holding the Tactical Tail Button. Its main core produces a max output of 3,000 lumens, pushing 75,700cd to a distance of 550 meters that rivals mid-size flashlights in terms of long-range illumination.

The EDC35 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 6,000mAh 21700 Li-ion battery. Crafted in partnership with the industry partner, the EDC35 features a built-in 6,000mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery, offering a 21.6Wh high capacity with an energy density of 296mWh/g. This capacity is equal to the energy provided by six CR123A Li-ion batteries, effectively doubling the backup power, so users will never worry about the battery life.

The EDC35 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 EDC35 weighs only 178g (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.

Crafted from thickened, high-quality materials using a high-precision lathe and a milling machine, the cyclone-inspired bezel helps prevent any potential snagging. The flashlight balances defense, aesthetics, and portability for use on public transport, always ready to provide high strength protection in emergencies. The EDC35 also includes a Tactical Holster, featuring sensor protection function, rotary protection cover, optical lenses with double-sided scratch resistant coating, and an ATR (Advanced Temperature Regulation) module.
