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.

Excellent Product

The Nitecore HC30 is a great little and versatile headtorch in the fact that you can remove it from its holder and have it clipped on the side of your belt/pocket etc.It is very bright and made to a high standard.I purchased this item from Torch Direct knowing through previous dealings with this company that I would receive first class service and delivery and would highly recommend them without any hesitation whatsoever.

Great light and very powerful. I recommend this product, although the strap could be a little more comfortable.

Bought this for the wife for early-morning horse yard duties. It is superb - very floody and amazingly bright. Big problem though - turns out that its brighter than my own Fenix PD35 - time for an upgrade. This torch stuff is a bit addictive isn't it?

Super head torch
Sunday, 11 December 2016  | 

Lovely small and neat head torch, user interface is simple and starts on ultra low (1 lumen) then goes up through the brightness settings. Very bright on highest but does get warm. Not sure about the clip with relatively loose clothing - tip: for use in a shirt pocket, slip in an old plastic store or gift card. It makes a stiffer backing & the torches doesn't wobble as much. Compares well with my Nitecore MH2C but broader spill which is better for a headtorch. Small and light, ideal for EDC. Wish I had this back in the '80s when caving!!

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.
