5 of 5 HC35 March 2, 2020
Reviewer: Aaron from KY  
I got a cheap brand on Amazon that claims 12,000 Lumens and it broke in 3 months. I had bought 4 18650 high quality extra batteries with it. I was very hesitant to get this HC35 because it's only 2,700 Lumens and MADE IN CHINA!!! I've had this HC35 for a few days, been out in below 19 degrees and yup it's AWESOME!! This one is the same brightness as the one I ordered claiming 12,000 Lumens. It is VERY bright! When you put it into Turbo mode (2,700 Lumens) it stays for about 30 seconds - a minute (I didn't time it) then automatically goes down to the 4th setting. The 4th setting is bright enough for me and if I need that turbo to kick in I just press the button again and there it is! The HC35 fits my 18650's so now I have 5 batteries!! It's easy to use, seems very strong and I LOVE IT! I'd suggest you pick this up if you are looking for performance matched with quality. I'd suggest picking up extra high quality batteries as well and you should be good to go.

5 of 5 A WHOLE LOT OF BANG FOR THE BUCK! February 16, 2020
Reviewer: Kathleen from Brookhaven, GA United States  
As an avid fan and owner of numerous Nitecore flashlights, my expectations were high when I ordered this headlamp.  As usual, my expectations have been exceeded by Nitecore's attention to quality, function, and detail. There were three main selling points of this headlamp. First, was that it was rechargeable. As I do a lot of camping, carrying a single power cell is a much more convenient charging solution than carrying numerous batteries of various types. Being able to charge this off of a power cell is a very big deal!  Second, the run times for this lamp are really a significant advance over other models I have owned.  Third, I can remove the light easily from the headband to make this flashlight function as a powerful stand-alone flashlight, not simply a headlamp.
I had originally purchased this for my nephew, a plumber for Christmas.  I liked it so much I bought one for myself.  
This is a GREAT light!

5 of 5 HC35 Headlamp January 1, 2020
Reviewer: Robbie Sites from West Virginia United States  
I was immediately impressed with the quality packaging of the Headlamp.  This Headlamp 'feels' very good when holding it in my hand.  Twenty-seven hundred lumens is dazzling.  I compared this with a flashlight with one thousand lumens and the difference was incredible.  I purchased the right-angle head because this versatility of being able to wear this as a Headlamp & also the hand-held eliminated the need to carry both in my EDC or BOB. The 18650-2xCR123 adapter lets me use the extra 18650 batteries I already have.  The 15% discount felt sweet when I clicked on Order.  Great product.  I highly recommend the new HC35 Headlamp.
