Max output 1000 lumens. Powered by 1x18650 or 2xRCR123 or 2xCR123 batteries.

The Nitecore HC30 head torch has been designed to be lightweight and compact, yet extremely powerful. Made from aircraft grade aluminium and weighing in at only 40 grams it is comfortable to wear for long periods.

Utilising a Cree XM-L2 U2 LED with a maximum output of 1000 lumens. The HC30 has a wide 100 degree beam to illuminate everything in the users field of vision. It can also be rotated upwards and downwards easily. Maximum beam distance is 162 meters in turbo mode.

The torch can use 1x18650 or 2xRCR123 or 2xCR123 batteries. 18650 Li-ion are recommended for the best runtimes. Button tops cells are required due to the reverse polarity protection.

In addition to the headband the HC30 includes a removable two-way titanium plated pocket clip so it can be clipped to clothing or used free standing.

Available with either a Cool or Neutral white LED (select type required from the drop down menu).

Five brightness levels (runtimes with 18650 Li-ion) plus SOS and flashing modes accessed by the single switch for one handed operation:

Turbo: 1000 lumens - 1 hour runtime
High: 400 lumens - 3 hour 30 minute runtime
Mid: 210 lumens - 7 hour 15 minute runtime
Low: 70 lumens - 15 hour 15 minute runtime
Ultralow: 1 lumen - 330 hour runtime

The HC30 reflector is smooth polished with Nitecore's Precision Digital Optics Technology (PDOT) which utilises digital simulation an precise point to point curved reflective methods to optimise performance and ensure a more consistent uniform and full coverage beam, capable of illuminating targets at distance while ensuring an even beam at close range.

A CNC machined uni-body head section with cooling fins helps dissipate heat in all modes, and the Nitecore HC30 dynamically adjusts brightness according to the internal temperature of the torch. This prevents damage from overheating and prolongs the working life of the Cree LED.

Other features include direct access to turbo and ultralow mode, reverse polarity protection, waterproof to IPX-8 (2 meters submersible) and impact resistant to 1.5 meter drops.

Includes: Adjustable headband, removable stainless steel titanium-plated two-way pocket clip, two spare o-rings and two CR123A (non-rechargeable) batteries.

Would have been 5 star if the headlight had the ability to create a narrow beam.

Beautifully made and insanely powerful head torch with versatile increments of light output and multiple usability with or without the headband .
All I ask from Nitecore, please design a clip on red filter that can be flipped up or down when needed, this would make the HC30 would be a true masterpiece....

Powerful little torch has been used plenty since purchase finding its way into my trousers pocket on a daily basis. Well built and seemingly long lasting (I haven't had it for a long time) I am very happy to carry it while in the outdoors or urban environments as it does everything a bigger sized torch would. I also have been using it for night mtb bike rides as a helmet light and have been considering buying a second one to attach to the handlebar.
Only slight complaint I have is I find the head strap rubber bit hurts my forehead after wearing it for a few minutes due to its design. Apart from that it has been a 5 star product so far.

Such a powerful and adaptable torch, from using headband, clipped onto clothing, rucksack straps, etc. Very versatile with good lighting range. Unbelievable 1000 lumens from such a small package. Now permanently attached to.........me.

Perfect for running off road in the dark. Light, powerful, comfortable and bright enough on lower levels so it lasts longer than I do.
