The new Nitecore HC33 is the most powerful head torch in our range with a staggering output of 1800 lumens. Utilising a Cree XHP35 HD LED with a lifespan of 50,000 hours the HC33 puts out an incredible amount of light from a small and lightweight headlamp.
Please note: The HC33 can be powered by an 18650 battery, however it MUST have an output of 8A or higher.
Featuring a wide angle reflector with Nitecore's crystal coating technology, the HC33 emits a beam up to 187 meters with a 100 degree spread, making it a very versatile with a good combination of range and flood for multiple applications.
The included headband is made from quality elastic nylon, which is comfortable and can also be worn over a helmet. A rubber bracket holds the torch in place and allows the light to be angled up or down easily with one hand. The HC33 can also be used as a hand held light and includes a pocket clip for this purpose. The tail cap has a magnet inside allowing for attachment to metal surfaces for even more hands free uses such as when working on motor vehicles.
