The Olight H1 Nova is a compact, high power LED head torch that emits a maximum output of 500 lumens from a Cree XM-L2 LED, with a choice of either a cool white beam or a neutral white beam.
Powered by a single CR123A non-rechargeable lithium metal battery (included), it has a maximum run-time of 15 days on the lowest 2 lumen setting. It can also be powered using a Single 16340/RCR123A rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which can be purchased separately.
Featuring five brightness levels and SOS, the torch is turned on and off with the side mounted push button. Select the brightness level with the torch turned on by holding the switch to cycle through low, mid and high in turn, whilst a quick double click will access turbo.
A textured bead lens delivers a smooth, balanced wide beam that provides soft, wide angle lighting with a beam range of up to 66 metres.
The moonlight mode of 2 lumens can be accessed directly when the torch is off by pressing and holding down the switch. SOS is activated by three quick presses of the switch.
The memory function will remember the last mode used for moonlight, low, mid, high and turbo(it will only remember high and turbo for 10 minutes since it was used, after that it will revert to mid). A handy lockout function prevents the torch from being accidentally activated and is accessed by pressing and holding the switch for 2 seconds.
A pocket clip is included so that the head torch can be used stand alone without the headband and clipped to clothing. The H1 Nova also features a dual purpose magnetic tail cap, so you can use it as a hands-free work light.
