NITECORE HC65 Headlamp

The NITECORE HC65 USB rechargeable headlamp adds even more power to the popular HC60 headlamp by adding secondary red & high CRI LEDs. Equipped with a primary CREE XM-L2 US LED, users will enjoy a 1000 lumen wide-angle output beam capable of a 120 yard throw useful for mid-range illumination activities like hiking, biking and camping. A high CRI auxiliary white light renders colors more like sunlight and can be used for an upclose flood of light when reading or working while an auxiliary red light helps users preserve night vision in dark environments.

A single push button switch located on the side of the unit provides easy one-handed operation to seven brightness levels and four special modes. A built-in power indicator allows users to check battery levels anywhere. While the included 18650 battery, built-in micro-USB charging port and charging cable provides a complete recharging system when connected to any USB power source, making this headlamp perfect for travel and long excursions. Durable metal construction and an IPX8 waterproof rating ensures the headlamp can withstand indoor/outdoor elements and is ready for your next adventure!

5 of 5 Best headlamp ever December 20, 2021
Reviewer: Lane from DonnellUnited Statesidaho  
Use one for work every morning for the last year and a half,  bought one for my wife,  she loves it.  Bought this one for my friend,  he loves it.... can't beat the quality,  innovative design and simplicity of this device.  It functions flawlessly every time I have used it.  The beam is incredible and lasts longer than I expected.  Battery is quick to charge and with one extra you will never run out of light at work.  Highly recommend this product to anyone that doesn't mind spending a little more for a device that will last for years and years.

5 of 5 Best October 26, 2021
Reviewer: Adam from AmherstNew York, NY United States  
Hands down the best headlamp out there. All the different modes, ease of use, long lasting and takes the worst weather you can throw at it. I wear mine snowshoeing in the mountains in blizzard like conditions and I can always rely upon my HC65!

4 of 5 Powerful. Heavy. Confusing September 2, 2021
Reviewer: The Captain from Earth  
Most powerful headlamp I've ever owned. My 1st one was in 1996. Personally I love the red light. Keeps the bugs down, easier on the eyes when sitting in a group or walking along the dock. The area light is amazing too. I use those 2 more than the spot, which is crazy-bright. Likewise great when pulling the boat in at night. Adequate headband. My only 2 gripes is that it's quite heavy by any measure and the controls are abysmally confusing. I've gotten to the point that I just close my eyes when I turn it on because I know I'm going to do it wrong and either activate the 10000lm strobe or the spot.

5 of 5 This Bad boy is Bright August 21, 2021
Reviewer: charles from Delaware  
Really lights up the night and is great for sharpening knives. The strap that goes across the top of the head is an added Plus.  No Regrets buying this light!
