Great little light. Easy to use, the clip fits on a range of straps, belts or webbing. Battery seems to last well. I would have liked a solid-red mode.


The item is as bought as a light for my dog to wear while out on walks especially at night. As having bought Nitecore products before and knowing how good there quality is, the NU05 is no disappointment. The modes are easy to cycle through and the brightness is more than adequate for my purpose. While in the steady white mode on the dog’s collar it lights the whole area like a halo which is perfect. On red flashing beacon mode this is more than enough to capture people’s attention. Great product and recommended.



The Nitecore NU05 head torch has a maximum output of 35 lumens from the high performance LED and is powered by the built-in, rechargeable, Li-ion battery.

The NU05 offers five outputs; a red indicator, red slow blink, red fast blink and white blink, in addition to solid white illumination. The headlamp features a lockout mode which is achieved by holding the button for approximately 3 seconds. Once in lockout mode, the light will flash to notify the user.

The head torch is ideal for applications that may require red and white light, such as signalling. Available with bike mounts, the NU05 can be attached to your bike to alert other road users of your presense, or worn whilst night running.

The NU05 is only available as a 'Simple Edition' which includes the light unit only. For the kit version (includes a headband, bike mounts and USB charging cable), please see the NU05 V2.
