5 of 5 Best flash light ever June 1, 2020
Reviewer: nick j from Pomona, CA United States  
I do super market refrigeration.  Let me start off by saying I bought 1 flashlight. The nm02. I was so impressed and happy with this flash light I bought another one as a gift, and I bought the HC35.
I’m blown away with these lights. I can be working at midnight on a roof and these lights will light up the rooftop. 1000% recommended

5 of 5 Really Big Work light potential May 23, 2020
Reviewer: Steven from honolulu, HI United States  
Playing around with it at work, I realized that this light with a magnetic clip would beat any work light that I tried. It's compact, light weight, long run time, extremely bright, water proof, and tough. But no magnetic clip is offered. This light would be tool light to have in any work truck, electrician or refrigeration tech tool box, mechanic, air craft mechanic, first responder, or contractor.
Nitecore has a really big winner here. They just need to make the accessories to take it to the next level to be one of the best work lights. Take it to a trade show and I am sure it would draw a big crowd.

5 of 5 Beats my expectations May 23, 2020
Reviewer: Steven from Honolulu, Hawaii  
The second I turned it on it blew me away. This thing has some serious power. This is my first real rechargeable headlamp. I've been having to use my flashlight when my headlamp wouldn't cut it. And with this pandemic getting lights is difficult. I am really pleased I bought this. Nitecore you rock!!!

5 of 5 Who needs the sun with this thing! May 19, 2020
Reviewer: Jimmy Elkin from Morris, IL  
Just received my new headlamp. Wow this thing is the real deal! No cheap parts made here. Quality is definitely the best I have ever seen. As for the light itself, this is by far the brightest headlamp me personally have ever used. Swiveling attachment is perfect, buttons are smooth and the battery last forever!
I’m an operator at a power plant and this is a must have!

5 of 5 HC35: Meat and potatoes.... carrots May 5, 2020
Reviewer: Dude from Beaumont, TX United States  
I wanted something that wasn’t to petite in the hand. Bought a competitor light originally and was too compact to work with imo. Turbo mode is clean and the beam is wide. Exactly what I hoped from the 4 led combo. Wasn’t interested in a far throw per say, though the competitor one I got was single led @2300 lumen was nice but felt I needed something more. This hc35 is just more of what I wanted in a light pattern. Broad and bright with a consistent light coverage.  Only con would be I wish it was click on to last setting rather than having to hold a sec then goes to last setting. Id hate to be in a situation and need it on without delay. That’s my only disappointment.
