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.

Reviewer: PREPARED GUY from NH United States  
Solid runtimes, light output and over all functions. Couldn't ask for a better headlamp for the price point.

5 of 5 NU43 Review, Comments January 14, 2023
Reviewer: Zadok from Raleigh  
I bought this to use as a general purpose headlamp and for a high-performance light (bright + long battery life) for short-distance backpacking (not high MPD). I have other lights for road running, UL b-packing.)
- Nice headband, improved.
- Is light weight for a 16650.
- Very intuitive controls.
- Red light is plenty bright for inside tent or around camp.
- The light is super powerful, very bright, and super nice beam spread with dual LEDs. Best combo of throw + spread I've ever seen. You can see way ahead of you while still clearly seeing your feet.

- Replaceable battery, if only for sales purposes.
- I'd strengthen the ratcheting tilt feature by about 3x. It's okay as-is, but just too easy to change. I'll leave it in one place and never move it.

Summary: If you could only have one, this would be it.
