The Nitecore HC68 is a very bright focusable headlamp. It emits a max brightness of 2000 lumen white light that reaches up to 220 yards. You can continuously adjust the beam profile between a focused spotlight and a wide flood light beam. Its 150° degree truevision wide angle flood beam covers your entire field of vision and the 180° vertical pivot provides you the ultimate control. The HC68 also comes with two auxiliary red LEDs for hunting, insect repelling, or low light conditions. This makes the HC68 an ideal headlamp for camping, running, trekking, biking, or any professional work such as industrial maintenance, security, or patrol.

USB-C Rechargeable

The HC68 headlamp comes with a 3500mAh high capacity 18650 battery that supports an exceptional 800 hours of runtime on ultra low. You can fast charge the headlamp via its protected USB-C charging port. The LED light beneath the power switch doubles as a charging status indicator and battery power indicator.

Easy to Use and Comfortable to Wear

HC68 is super easy to use with its large power switch and top side stepless focus adjustment buttons. Hold down the (+) button for stepless adjustment up to 1800 lumen piercing spotlight or hold down the (-) button for a wide beam up to a 1400 lumen floodlight. Triple tap the power switch to activate the red light.

5 of 5 Hc68 headlamp March 16, 2022
Reviewer: Shaneon3 from Montana  
This is by far the brightest head lamp I have ever used. It has so many settings and features I can't decide which ones I want to use between the spot and flood ul be happy on setting 3 the max is alot and works great. It's so bright if u hold a paper or clothing to it it will start a fire! Careful with that. It is worth the 100 bucks. Great for calving and farming let alone hunting and hiking in the dark. Also hands free is always the best!
