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.

3 of 5 Sensor it very frustrating to use at times. March 12, 2024
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from CA United States  
I never would have ordered this if i had known about the "object sensor" which turns the lumens down to 100 if something is close to your face....like say if youre working on something in the dark!? Ridiculous feature. Please remove it and fire whoever thought of it and whoever let it get made. Goodbye

Reviewer: David Mays from Milwaukie, OR United States  
I am a welder and actually use this as a light on top of my welding helmet to see when I’m in tight and dark areas so I can see better before I start to weld. Works great. I bought 2 so I can keep one in a charger while I’m using the other. Love the quality.

4 of 5 Product good-customer service response questionabl January 14, 2024
Reviewer: John Seider from Woodruff, WI United States  
While I have been pleased with the headlamp itself I have tried several times to get a question answered on the headlamp and have not got a good answer. Some generic answers that weren't relevant to the question
