The Nitecore HU60 is an industry leading head torch packed full of innovative design features you'll love.
It utilises 4 x Cree XP-G3 S3 LEDs for a spotlight output of 1600 lumens and a Cree XHP35 HD E2 LED for a floodlight output of 1200 lumens, which can be gradually changed between or in stepped increments using E-focus technology, opposed to traditional twist or slide bezel spot to flood focus, which is an industry first.
The floodlight LED uses a ultra smooth TrueVision optical system that has a precisely calculated lens to provide a 170° wide angle beam which eliminates the central hotspot to provide a beam similar to that of natural sunlight, thus reducing eye strain and fatigue. This makes the floodlight perfect for caving, night trekking, trail running and more. The four spot LEDs have a maximum beam range of 162 m which is ideal for caving, search & rescue, outdoor activities and more.
There are 5 preset beam patterns for stepped quick and easy selection for different scenarios. M1 is 100% flood, M2 is 75% flood + 25% spot, M3 is 50% flood + 50% spot, M4 is 25% flood + 75% spot and M5 is 100% spot.
Two methods of operation are possible for the HU60, either using the buttons on the head lamp or using the wristband remote for wireless control. Both the head lamp and remote have three buttons with the same functions, a power button, a T button and a W button. Using either set of controls, long press the power button to turn the light on/off and the last used setting will be remembered next time the light is turned on.
With the light on, short press the power button to cycle through the brightness levels in the order of ultralow, low, mid, high and turbo. Once in the desired output you can also change the beam focus between the spot and flood. Short presses of the W button will cycle through the preset levels increasing the floodlight output and decreasing the spotlight output in increments until M1 is reached, or to go the opposite way to increase the spotlight and decrease the floodlight output simply short press the T button until M5 is reached.
The focus can also be changed in a smooth motion without the stepped increments by instead holding down the W or T buttons to increase or decrease the level of floodlight and spotlight output, then releasing at the desired level of focus. When in ultralow brightness level only 100% flood and 100% spot are available, so a short press of the W button will go to M1 and a short press of the T button will jump to M5.
Abandoning the traditional battery power method, the HU60 does not have a battery pack and instead a cable with a standard USB-A connector on the end so it can be powered by a USB power bank source (not included). This revolutionary design not only reduces the weight of a battery pack on the head, allowing it to be stored in a pocket or backpack instead, it also offers ultimate flexibility as it can be used with any high quality power bank with at least 18 W and QC output.
It is recommended to use the Nitecore NPB power bank series ( NPB1 & NPB2) as they have a metal cable lock that is specially designed to work with the cable of the HU60 to lock it in place and prevent accidental disconnection while in use, it has QC2.0/3.0 output and they are also waterproof which is useful for damp conditions such as caving or outdoor activities in the rain. Other compatible Nitecore power banks are the NB10000 and F4.
The integrated advance temperature regulation (ATR) technology regulates the output of the HU60 according to the working condition and ambient environment to maintain the optimal performance.

M1 at 100% Floodlight:
Turbo: 1200 lumens; 1 hour run-time; 37 m beam range*
High: 480 lumens; 4 hours, 30 minutes run-time; 24 m beam range
Mid: 200 lumens; 7 hours, 30 minutes run-time; 15 m beam range
Low: 50 lumens; 21 hours run-time; 7 m beam range
Ultra Low: 5 lumen; 45 hours run-time; 2 m beam range
M5 at 100% Spotlight:
Turbo: 1600 lumens; 1 hour, 30 minutes run-time; 162 m beam range*
High: 480 lumens; 5 hours run-time; 88 m beam range
Mid: 200 lumens; 9 hours, 30 minutes run-time; 56 m beam range
Low: 50 lumens; 23 hours run-time; 28 m beam range
Ultra Low: 5 lumen; 45 hours run-time; 9 m beam range
Note: *As this is a high drain device, the temperature regulation may lower the output to reduce the temperature of the torch when used in the turbo mode. A power bank with at least 18 W is required to access the turbo output.
Tested to ANSI/PLATO FL1-2019 standards in laboratory conditions using the included 5000 mAh power bank. The data may vary in real world use depending on battery output, individual usage habits and environmental factors.
