The Nitecore HC60 rechargeable torch emits an output of 1000 lumens from it's Cree XM-L2 U2 LED, with a choice of either a cool white beam or a warm, neutral white beam.

The torch is turned on by pressing the side switch and turned off by holding the side switch. Once turned on, five brightness levels can be cycled through in the order of ultra-low, low, mid, high and turbo with each press of the switch. While turned off, special modes can also be accessed with two quick presses and then cycles through strobe, SOS and location beacon modes with each press of the switch.

Supplied with the HC60 is a Nitecore 3400 mAh lithium-ion battery, that is charged inside the head lamp via the micro-USB charging port. Reveal the port by unscrewing the USB cover on the right side of the torch and then simply plug the included cable into the charging port and the other end into a computer/laptop or a suitable USB adaptor.

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.

I've bought a few items from Torch Direct the torches have been Nitecore. They're great products that last and just work perfectly. The HC60 gave me just what I wanted a decent head torch that lets me see and be seen.

This head torch does everything a torch should do. It is very bright. The head band does not seem quite strong enough elastic for the weight of torch, but it does work.

A quality item, delivered quickly and efficiently

If you want a quality head torch then this is it. Made from aluminium and consequently robust. I searched for a warm white head torch, as I reckon the greater range of wavelengths/colours result in one seeing more detail in objects. Also it's more pleasing to the eye. OK so it's a lot more expensive than many, but then you get what you pay for.

A really good piece of kit. I have other Nitecore torches but wanted one to use hands free. It's not too heavy and fits really well.
