The Nitecore HC65 is a rechargeable LED head torch that offers a main white LED output as well as an auxiliary white light and a red light output.

The main white light provides a maximum output of 1000 lumens from a Cree XM-L2 U2 LED and due to the smooth reflector it projects a defined central hot spot of light surrounded by wide angle spill lighting that provides a 100° angle of illumination for excellent peripheral vision. Additionally the head torch has a hinged bracket, allowing the light to be tilted and adjusted within a 180° angle.

To the right of the main light there is a white auxiliary LED that has a high colour rendering index (CRI ≥ 90) and provides an output of 26 lumens. The high CRI means the beam resembles that of morning sunlight, making colours appear more clearly to the human eye and also reducing eye strain, which makes this mode perfect for night reading.

There is also a red auxiliary LED that offers a constant red output and red caution light (slow flash). Red light preserves your night vision and is good for wildlife observation, astronomy and night photography.

A single two stage side switch controls all the functions of the HC65 and can be fully pressed until a click is heard or half pressed. The main white light is turned on and off by fulling pressing in the button. Once turned on, half presses cycle through the brightness settings in the order of ultra-low, low, mid, high and turbo. With the light on in any mode, fully press and hold the button for 0.6 seconds to access the special modes and then half press to cycle through strobe, SOS and beacon.

The white auxiliary light is accessed by half pressing the button and holding for 0.6 seconds and turned off with a single half or full press. The red auxiliary light is accessed by fully pressing the button and holding for 0.6 seconds. Once turned on in the red mode, half presses change between constant red and red caution light (slow flash). A full press turns the red light off.

The HC65 features a positioning indicator, that can be turned on or off, so you can easily locate the head torch in the dark. To activate the position indicator half press the button while the light is off and the blue light will blink once every two seconds and another half press or turning the light on will turn the indicator off.

Supplied with the HC65 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 (where the button is) 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 intelligent memory function remembers the last used main white brightness setting (apart from special modes) next time the torch is turned on. The advanced temperature regulation module allows the HC65 to regulate its output and adapt to the ambient environment to maintain optimal performance.
