The Nitecore HC33 is a powerful head torch offering a jaw dropping output of 1800 lumens from a Cree XHP35 HD LED, making it a compact powerhouse.

Due to the high output, the HC33 requires a rechargeable lithium-ion 18650 high drain battery like the Nitecore NL1835HP or a rechargeable lithium-ion IMR18650. Other lithium-ion 18650 batteries can be used, however they need to have a high discharge current of at least 8 A in order to work. The HC33 can also use two CR123A lithium metal non rechargeable batteries, however the turbo setting is unavailable if you are using CR123A batteries.

Featuring a 100° wide angle beam the HC33 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 single push button turns the torch on and off by pressing and holding for 0.6 seconds, then once the torch is on a single press will cycle through the modes of Ultra-low, low, mid, high, turbo. Instant turbo from off is accessed by holding the button for 1.5 seconds and instant ultra-low from off is accessed by a single press.

Three special modes of strobe, SOS and location beacon are also available and are accessed by quickly double pressing the button from off and then cycled through with single presses.

The intelligent memory circuit will remember the last brightness setting used, apart from special modes, and will turn back on at that setting. The advanced temperature regulation module allows the HC33 to regulate its output and adapt to the ambient environment to maintain optimal performance.

A built-in battery voltage indicator will display battery voltage each time the battery is installed and the tail cap is tightened. For example if the voltage is 4.2 V, it will flash four times then pause and then flash two more times.

A pocket clip is included so that the head torch can be used stand alone without the headband and clipped to clothing. The magnetic tail cap also allows for hands free use.

Tested to ANSI / Nema FL 1 standard using Nitecore batteries, as shown above.

Please note: *Advanced temperature regulation technology allows the HC33 to dynamically adjust the output performance according to it's temperature to prevent damaged from over heating, therefore these run-times are based on a theoretical arithmetic.

Nitecore HC33 LED Head Torch
Thursday, 20 February 2020  | 

I have been using a Nitecore HC30 for 5+ years and it has never let me down. So I decided to treat myself to the more powerful HC33. Only used it twice so far but first impressions are very positive, it's just like the brilliant initial model, just with greater power. There's simply nothing to dislike.

Top Quality Head Torch
Monday, 25 November 2019  | 

This is my third Nitcore product and I'm thrilled with it. Its absolutely tiny but performs like the MH25GT. Seen no temp throttling on "turbo" mode. Even if you are thinking of a handheld torch put this on your short list. it works as both hand held and head torch and its so handy on dog walks or working on the car with both hands are free. Make sure you buy through a reputable store like this one as there are knock offs of all the big brands out there and they just don't work like this.
