5 of 5 Great lightweight light. June 29, 2019
Reviewer: Chris Hudson from Cookeville, TN United States  
So far, five stars.  I've only used it on one cave trip, but for it's price, light weight, and brightness, it's a winner.  My main light is a Nitecore HC70, which has been incredible.  I bought this one  to use as  a 2nd helmet-mounted light and think it will be perfect.

5 of 5 The HC30 Is Outstanding March 3, 2019
Reviewer: Michael from North East  
I ordered the HC30 in neutral white as I use it on the trails mostly. This is a fantastic light with wonderful tint. The brightness is what one would expect from an 1000lm light. I find the lumen spacing to be absolutely perfect for my needs, and the 1lm setting is excellent for reading a book or map. The headband is extremely comfortable and is adjustable for a wide variety of head sizes. The UI is simple and easy to use. If you're looking for a headlamp look no further!

5 of 5 Look no more! Most awswowome head lamp ever. May 2, 2018
Reviewer: Rogelio Vallejo from Parlier, CA ccStates  
I'm a Tow Truck Operator for over 25 years. Recently out on a recovery with workers form the electricity company. I asked them, What kind of headlamps are you guys using? I was shown the HC30 and its cool features. I have used a variety of lighting sources on and off the job and have had bad experiences with them all.  So, I recently went online and purchased me the: Nitecore, HC30, headlamp.  Im going on a few nights of use, without any charge of the battery (because I forgot to order the charger).  However, this mini flashlight/ head lamp works awesome! And I have had many compliments thus far from law enforcment.  Also, the selections of batteries are significant, and trust me, they have an impressive life span.  Still, most intriguing is the lighting that comes from within this small well crafted headlamp.
In all, I would like to thank Nitecore, for the well manufactured HC30 headlamp. Look no more and get your, dependable headlamp / highly recommend at Nitecore.
