Lightweight Headlamp

The Nitecore NU43 headlamp brings power without breaking your back. Just a little over 4 ounces in weight, the NU43 is capable of a 1400 lumen max with a max beam throw of over 142 yards. Equipped with an upgraded unibody optical lens system, you get a combination dual LED spotlight to see in the distance, and a floodlight for close-up tasks and reading. Alternatively, switch to the auxiliary red light to protect your night vision or as a long-lasting signal light.

USB-C Rechargeable

The Nitecore NU43 is equipped with a built-in 3400mAh high-efficiency battery for extended runtimes of up to 165 hours on ultralow, and over 10 hours on high. The best news is that it can fully charge in under 2 hours via its hidden USB-C port. The highly efficient current circuit provides up to a full year of standby power making it a great candidate for emergency kits.

Durable and Lightweight Design

Sharing the stage with the NU43 is a well-thought-out headband design. It is wider, more breathable, stretchy, and comfortable to wear. Nitecore NU43 is ready for the most vigorous exercises, and arduous tasks and wear for an extended time. The LED assembly is protected by an aluminum frame for increased impact resistance and the whole headlamp is rated IP68 waterproof. Additionally, built into the head of the LED array is a proximity sensor that automatically dims the light when approaching barriers, reducing harsh glare and reflection, and preventing overheating.

5 of 5 Great Work Light September 22, 2023
Reviewer: William Elliott from Shaker Heights, OH United States  
I've been using various headlamps for a few years.  As my eyes get older it's really handy to have a little extra light if I'm looking in a dark corner of a closet or doing some work on my boat or around the house.  The NU43 has the perfect beam and fantastic battery life.  It far surpasses any other light that I have.  I don't even want to use any of the other lights now that I have the NU43.  I also love the ability to adjust the beam without the typical hinge at the bottom of the light.  The band on the NU43 is the most comfortable and stays put.  Love, this light!  Keep up the great work Nitecore

5 of 5 All night light August 29, 2023
Reviewer: Joseph S Rabinowitz from Oregon, USA  
I bought the Nitecore 43 because of the long, rechargeable battery life and fair price and planned to use it on my first 100 mile race.  It did not disappoint.  I only needed to use the low setting for most of the night, with some of the medium setting at times.  When morning came I still had 3/4 of the battery life left!  This headlamp provides a lot of usable light for very little energy cost.  Great headlamp!

5 of 5 Nitecore NU43 July 5, 2023
Reviewer: Traci Stamey from Clearwater, FL United States  
Excellent headlamp for metal detecting! I really appreciate being able to rotate this headlamp along with all the selections of light settings. It's sea turtle season here in Florida so the red light is prefect not to disrupt them but still bright enough to be effective on my end.The NU43 is also very comfortable. I definitely recommend it!

So far I really like the light and plan to buy more of your products I like that it's bright and the battery seems to last a long time between charges
