This is an outstanding head torch. Amazing build quality and illumination as expected from Nitecore. My only gripe is the power button is just too easy to turn on in the pocket. This resulted in a hole being burned through my pocket and the lens being damaged. Should have a much firmer (or recessed) button to prevent accidental operation. A quick replacement lens was sent to me without quibble !


Well made, quality item.


The Nitecore HC65 V2 headlamp has a maximum output of 1750 lumens from the Luminus SST-40-W LED and is powered by 1 x 18650 8A li-ion battery (included). The battery is rechargeable via a USB-C port at the side of the light and takes approximately 2 hours 25 minutes to fully charge.

The head torch features three light sources including the primary white light, an auxiliary red light and a high CRI auxiliary white light. The red light can effectively protect night  vision and is ideal for watching wildlife, stargazing, emergency use and night photography. The warm CRI>90 white light is suitable for short range illumination and resembles the warmth of sunlight, giving a sharp visual whilst reducing eye strain.

Offering three light sources, three special modes and five brightness levels, the HC65 V2 ensures there is a lighting output to meet your requirements. All outputs are operated by a single button on the top of the light for fast, intuitive activation. The power button also has a built-in power indicator which will flash to show the battery voltage.

The HC65 V2 has a unibody TIR lens system which reflects soft, uniform light and can produce several outputs with an ultra thin, lightweight body.

*Please note: To avoid accidental activation when being carried in a bag or pocket etc, we recommend removing the batteries.*
