Powerful 2000 Lumen Headlamp

The Nitecore HC65 UHE rechargeable headlamp is the ideal companion for various activities such as working, camping, hiking, and more. Its ultra-high efficiency (UHE) LED system and optical matrix lens ensure optimal performance, emitting a bright 2000-lumen beam that can reach distances of up to 243 yards.

Three Lighting Modes

The HC65 UHE offers remarkable versatility with its three lighting outputs: Primary White Light, Reading Light, and Red Light. When using the primary white light, you can access up to four different brightness levels by short-pressing the power button, or activate the turbo mode by double-pressing the power button. When the light is off, double-press the power button to access the reading light, providing two low-brightness modes. Alternatively, switch to the Red Light by long-pressing the mode button when the light is off. The red light protects your night vision or is used as a long-lasting signal light with three modes: Low, High, and Slow Flashing. The HC65 UHE also features modes like SOS and Beacon to assist you in any emergency.

USB-C Rechargeable and Durable

Weighing only 5.36 oz, the HC65 UHE is a lightweight headlamp perfect for night running, outdoor adventures, or camping. With a 4000mAh rechargeable battery, it can achieve a maximum runtime of 82 hours on its lowest setting. It also has an integrated waterproof USB-C port for easy charging, taking only 2 hours to reach full power. A power indicator lets you know when it's time to recharge, and the lockout mode prevents accidental activation. The HC65 UHE is also rated IP68 water-resistant and can withstand impacts of up to 2 meters, making it a reliable companion for everyday tasks, camping, hiking, and more, in any environment.
