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

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.

4 of 5 Good light January 29, 2023
Reviewer: Craig D from Wichita KSWichita, KS United States  
Awesome light. Bright and good natural color. Only complaint is the aim adjustment. Pretty much stuck in one position unless I take off my gloves and struggle to point the light where I want.
This light is the most comfortable on my head than any light I have ever worn. Lasts all night long on the railroad.

5 of 5 HC68 Headlamp January 21, 2023
Reviewer: Brett from Seguin, TX United States  
First. The service from Nitecore store is first rate!

I got the HC68 to replace my hand held light that I use for my evening chores after work.  It’s a great piece of kit.  Great battery life. Great brightness levels.  Love it.

5 of 5 HC68 January 16, 2023
Reviewer: Kevin from TN United States  
As with all my Nitecore lights the HC68 is very impressive. Super bright, easy to use, and built well. I like that I can adjust the amount of spot/focus or a mix of the two. The only complaint I would have was the shipping. It took almost two weeks to go from Nitecore in Texas to Tennessee. This was the usps fault but it was 3days before Nitecore shipped out my order so that did contribute to the long wait. Other than that very happy with it.

5 of 5 So happy!! December 31, 2022
Reviewer: TfFredefdsdrick Frazier from Ggoshen, NY United States  
This has got to be the brightest headlamp that I've ever tried. I love this light, it has replaced my work headlight. As it was heavy on the helmet & the charge was sub-par. Nitecore is my go 2 site for all my lumen & battery needs. .moving forward
