The Nitecore NU10 is a compact, rechargeable head torch that is available in a range of colours and provides a maximum output of 160 lumens from four white LEDs.
Because of the placement and design of the four white LEDs, this head torch is capable of super wide angle lighting that provides 170° illumination for excellent peripheral vision. Additionally, the head torch has a hinged bracket, allowing the light to be tilted and adjusted within a 60° angle.
There is also a red LED that sits in the middle of the other LEDs, providing an output of 13 lumens. A red output is useful as it preserves night vision and is good for night reading, animal tracking and astronomy.
Two push buttons are located on top of the NU10, the right power button controls the white LEDs and the left 'R' button controls the Red LED. Quick presses of the power button cycles through low, mid, high and off. Quick presses of the R button cycles through constant red, red flash and off. Once you have been in a setting for 3 seconds or more, the next press will turn the torch off.
The NU10 has an integrated 900 mAh lithium-ion battery, rated at 3.3 Wh and equivalent to four AAA batteries, that is charged via the micro-USB charging port. Reveal the port by lifting the dust cover on the left side of the torch and then simply plug the included micro USB cable into the charging port and the other end into a computer/laptop or a suitable USB adaptor.
The NU10 remains fully function while charging, so that you have access to light should you need it in an emergency, while a built in power indicator light in the button flashes to show the remianing battery power, so that you know when to charge it up. It also features a lockout function to prevent accidental activation, simply press and hold both buttons until the power indicator blinks once, and the same again to take it out of lockout mode.
