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.

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.

great product November 1, 2018
Reviewer: David Glennon from Boulder, CO United States  
Awesome headlamp. Choose to use other shipping methods than the USPS. They are terrible and it will take ~2weeks for delivery.  

Dear Nitecore,
Dont use the USPS. They suck. It makes you look bad.

New No record Headlamp October 23, 2018
Reviewer: Doug Edwards from Olivehurst, CA United States  
My wife ordered this new headlight. She knows that  of my many flashlights my favorite is a No record (Ec11). As usual with Nitecore's products this new one works great!  It is quite small and comfortable, I don't even realize it is on. It works perfectly for my intended use (short-term ranges). Couldn't be more happy, Keep up the good work Nitecore!

Great Headlamp, very light October 23, 2018
Reviewer: Marco Mejia from MN, USA  
Wanted a headlamp that i could use this winter for hiking, i needed it to be light and i wanted the strap to be just wrap around (without a top-strap). the headlamp is so light i don't even feel it on my head.
Easy to use once you get used to the UI, having a high CRI flood light is great for reading, with the main light being a bit throwier for overall use.
Red light is good but could stand being lower brightness for really dark situations.

Nitecore NU25 October 22, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from San Diego Diego, CA United States  
Picked up the NU25 to replace another small headlamp, this light is small but packs a punch! Has just the right amount of light modes, it's super small and light and best of all is rechargeable. The lens on the main auxiliary light puts out a perfect beam pattern for doing most camp chores - soft flood with no hot spot and the main light puts out a nice throw of light for night hiking. I saved over an ounce of weight and now I no longer need to bring spare batteries as my battery bank can charge it.
