5.0 Overall rating
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.*
