The Nitecore HC30 head torch has been designed to be lightweight and compact, yet powerful. Weighing in at only 40 grams without a battery, you won't even notice your wearing it.

Using a Cree XM-L2 U2 LED this head torch offers a 1000 lumens output on the highest setting and features a 100° wide angle beam to illuminate everything in your field of vision.

The HC30 is powered by two CR123A single use non-rechargeable batteries or one 18650 rechargeable battery and can run up to 10 hours, 15 minutes in low setting.

The single push button turns the torch on by pressing and holding for one second, once the torch is on a single press will cycle through the modes of low, mid, high, turbo and ultra-low. Three special modes, strobe, SOS and location beacon are also available.

The intelligent memory circuit will remember the last brightness setting used, apart from special modes, and will turn back on at that setting.

A pocket clip is included so that the head torch can be used stand alone without the headband and clipped to clothing.

The Nitecore HC30 head torch
Wednesday, 4 May 2016  | 

I do believe this head torch is the best one I have owned to date. I use it at work in very confined spaces where turning your head is even restrictive. I have used meny other head torches and they hit everything. This Nitecore HC30 is a dream as it is only 40 mm deep. As for the brightnes levels it has 5, all from one button. It also comes with strobe, SOS and beacon. Max lumens 1000. Min 4 lumens. This head torch is the best.

Excellent little combo torch
Monday, 4 April 2016  | 

This is a great little, multi purpose torch. Lightweight, powerful, easy to use and the fact that it can be used as either a headtorch or removed and hand held or clipped to clothing etc makes it doubly useful. I also have the older Nitecore HC50 which is bigger and heavier and overall I think I'd prefer to swap the older one for another one of these. No red light on it but that's a minor negative for my uses.
