The Nitecore HC30 head torch has been designed to be lightweight and compact, yet powerful and emits an output of 1000 lumens from a Cree XM-L2 U2 LED, with a choice of either a cool white beam or a warm, neutral white beam.
Featuring a 100° wide angle beam the HC30 will illuminate everything in your field of vision, making it perfect for tasks where seeing around you is essential, such as dog walking, tent building or caving.
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.
