Triple Outputs for Every Task

Get ready for one of the most versatile and compact headlamps NITECORE offers. The NITECORE NU25 headlamp packages three outputs (white/high CRI and red) into an ultra lightweight body you can wear comfortably for hours on end. A primary CREE XP-G2 S3 LED emits up to 360 lumens of light with up to 88 yards throw which can be used for running, cycling, setting up camp and so much more. For up close tasks, reading and photography, there is a secondary high CRI LED which produces a warm 20-lumen beam and renders colors and details better than cool white outputs. Last but not least, the NU25 also features a secondary red LED for preserving night vision, map reading and hunting. There are even three special modes (red caution/SOS/Beacon) for emergencies and signaling!

Easy Dual Switch Controls

Dual switch controls located conveniently on the top of the headlamp control white and red outputs separately and make it easy to switch between all three outputs so you always know what light you're accessing. The NU25 also features a lockout mode to prevent accidental button presses while stored in tight spaces.

Built-in Battery & Charging

The NU25 comes with a built-in 610mAh li-ion battery that offers 30 minutes of runtime on Turbo and up to 160 hours on the lowest setting. Keeping the NU25 is super simple with a built-in micro-USB charging port located on the underside of the unit. Use the included charging cable to plug the light into any USB source and a red indicator light under the control buttons will illuminate. Upon completion, the light will turn green. There's even a battery power indicator so you'll never be caught with low battery again.

Great Little Headlamp! January 7, 2019
Reviewer: CroweMag from Michigan, USA  
Superlight and super easy to use!  Like the separate red light button and the lockout feature is nice to avoid accidental activation while it’s stored away in my backpack.

If you’re on the fence just buy it...you won’t regret it!

very bright January 7, 2019
Reviewer: Bernadette  
My husband has poor eye sight.  He needs a GOOD headlamp for our backpacking trips.  This light is very bright and will do well for him.  I wouldn't be surprised if he uses it for daily use.

Excellent small light. December 17, 2018
Reviewer: Ian Murray from Ames, IA United States  
Great for backpacking. I wanted something that was waterproof, rechargeable, and had a red option plus had as low a weight as possible, this ticks all boxes. The interface and output levels are well thought out, very good balance between utility and size/ease of use. One small complaint: the listed weight is for the lamp ONLY, it does not include the strap (which is strange for a light designed primarily as a headlamp). I weighed the lamp at 1.0oz and the strap at 0.9oz. It's a minor thing but I wish Nitecore would more clearly list the weight for backpackers looking to lighten their load. Overall though, very satisfied, even at 1.9oz it's still lighter than anything else I found that has all the features I want. Buying a second one for my girlfriend.

Light and bright November 17, 2018
Reviewer: Christopher Reyes from The Californi Republic  
Just received my headlamp. The unit is super light weight and very bright. The
Various modes make it very useful. I’ve been testing it around the house. Been doing housework and office work with it on and it works great. I can get work done without disturbing the others sleeping.

I can’t wait to take it hiking and camping.
