NITECORE HC65 Headlamp

The NITECORE HC65 USB rechargeable headlamp adds even more power to the popular HC60 headlamp by adding secondary red & high CRI LEDs. Equipped with a primary CREE XM-L2 US LED, users will enjoy a 1000 lumen wide-angle output beam capable of a 120 yard throw useful for mid-range illumination activities like hiking, biking and camping. A high CRI auxiliary white light renders colors more like sunlight and can be used for an upclose flood of light when reading or working while an auxiliary red light helps users preserve night vision in dark environments.

A single push button switch located on the side of the unit provides easy one-handed operation to seven brightness levels and four special modes. A built-in power indicator allows users to check battery levels anywhere. While the included 18650 battery, built-in micro-USB charging port and charging cable provides a complete recharging system when connected to any USB power source, making this headlamp perfect for travel and long excursions. Durable metal construction and an IPX8 waterproof rating ensures the headlamp can withstand indoor/outdoor elements and is ready for your next adventure!

Good, but could use some refinement February 24, 2018
Reviewer: Aaron Jarrett from San Antonio, TX United States  
The HC65 is a great headset, however the major draw back to the design is that the light setting selector is toggled by a soft push on the power button.  This is a finicky design to get correct.  I would rather see the the selector be independent from the power button, like the MT20A.

very versatile headlamp, great product January 20, 2018
Reviewer: andrew box from kansas city, MO United StatesMMI  
Although I have too many headlamps, I knew I wanted an HC65 when I saw the specs.  The reason: this can replace 2 other headlamps.  It has a bright main LED, dimmer high CRI secondary LED, red LED and USB charging.  Features that previously I only had between 2 headlamps, now I can have them all in one!

3 in 1 headlamp works for me December 23, 2017
Reviewer: Ricky from Hull, MA United States  
‘Auxiliary white light’  for reading is a nicely colored balanced reading lamp at a distance of about 18 inches.
Red Light illuminating is great for a “star party” setting. The main lamp is good mix of flood and spot lighting. Fit and finish is first rate. My sixth Nitecore Light is a welcomed addition to round out the collection.
