High Performance Headlamp

The Nitecore HC60 v2 headlamp takes everything we love about HC60 and makes it even better. The max output has been increased to 1200 lumen that can reach up to 142 yards. Its 100 degree wide angle flood beam covers your entire field of vision, making it an ideal headlamp for camping, running, hunting, trekking, biking, or any outdoor activity.

LED Tint - White Light and Neutral White

The HC60 v2 headlamp comes in two versions: White Light or Neutral White LED tints. The white light version maximizes the contrast and clarity. It shines brightly between every blade of grass. The neutral white version has a lower color temperature of 4000-5000k and high CRI ability(>80%). This effectively reduces the eye strain while rendering the natural colors of terrain and foliage. Neutral white also cuts through the fog and rain better.

USB-C Rechargeable

The HC60 v2 comes with a 3400mAh high capacity 18650 battery, boasting an exceptional 680 hours of runtime on ultra low. This headlamp has also been upgraded with a USB-C charging port for improved charging times! The LED light beneath the power switch doubles as a charging status indicator and battery power indicator.

Easy to Use and Comfortable to Wear

HC60 v2 is super easy to use with its single switch design. No more fumbling multiple switches in the dark. Just long press the switch to power on and off. When the headlamp is on, short press the switch to cycle through different brightness levels and three auxiliary modes. The setting is memorized even after you turn off the headlamp. It is also designed to comfortably wear the headlamp for a prolonged time with a secure rear pad and silicone grip strip on the headlamp.

5 of 5 Excellent November 30, 2022
Reviewer: Randy from crewe, VA United States  
My HC 60 V2 1200 lm headlamp is excellent. I especially love the beam pattern, very floody.The ui is very easy once you get used to the button being on the front of the headlamp instead of on the top. The strap is comfortable, although a bit small for my fat head, but it still fits. Both the headband strap and the middle center strap are adjustable and breathable. The weight of the lamp is not too bad a little heavier than most AAA headlamps but not by much. You can tilt the headlamp up or down, but this is a little difficult, because of the tight fit in the mound, but as long as you hold them out with one hand and rotate that lamp with the other slowly, you are fine. Overall, this is a great headlamp and well worth the money I am a Fenix snob. However, I chose Nightcore because the reviews led me to believe that the battery run times are a little bit longer and I am more impressed with Nightcore batteries than Fenix. Time will tell so far I am happy with the purchase.

5 of 5 Hc60 v2 white) October 12, 2022
Reviewer: Paul from , CO UnitedColorado States  
Very pleased!  Bracket is surprisingly comfortable for having little padding (wore it for 2 hours on first hike). Wide beam pattern great for covering a trail, probably even better for off-trail use.  Bought the neutral (warm) white version; more comfortable on the eyes than cool white, but remember that a cool white will always appear brighter to the human eye than a warm one with the same lumen output.

Reviewer: P. J. Beauimont from Washington, DC  
This headlamp came one day before a major storm hit and knocked the power out all over my city for days.  Fortunately I'd had time to charge both batteries.  This headlamp had one outstanding capability that I had not seen before in a headlamp-- I could point the light straight up to reflect off the ceiling, which meant I could talk to people without blinding them.  As well, that softened the light and spread it all over the room.  Pros- tough and powerful, can be pointed straight up.  Can be used on super-low for hundreds of hours.  Cons-- Heavy, will make a red mark on your forehead if you have to wear it for hours.
