The Nitecore HC50 has now been updated to produce an output of 760 lumens of white light from it's Cree XM-L2 U2 LED.

As well as a main white LED the HC50 also offers a secondary red light output via the two side LEDs. Red light preserves your night vision and is useful for a range of tasks including astronomy, animal tracking and map reading.

The torch is turned on by fully pressing down the side switch. Once turned on, five brightness levels are available from the main white LED and are cycled through in the order of ultra-low, low, mid, high and turbo with half presses of the switch. While turned on, special modes can also be accessed with two quick full presses and then cycles through police warning, SOS and location beacon modes with half presses of the switch.

From off the red light is turned on by fully pressing and holding the switch for more than one second. Half presses will then change between red signal mode and red constant on mode.

The rugged unibody aluminium construction provides excellent cooling performance and a sturdy unit that is also lightweight. The HC50 is powered by two CR123A single use non-rechargeable batteries or one 18650 lithium-ion rechargeable battery.
