400 Lumen Belt Running Light

The Nitecore UT05 is a bright yet lightweight running light that wraps around the waist through the belt loops or running belt. Its dual LED modules emit a maximum of 400 lumen 160° wide flood beam that covers the ground up to 29 yards in front of you, which ensures the ultimate visibility and safety. Rated IP66 water resistant, this thing works rain or shine, and is made from durable anodized aluminum for the extra reliability and durability. The UT05 is perfect for night running, dog walking or jogging during dawn and dusk.

Continuous USB Power

The UT05 can be continuously powered by any power bank or power source via its standard USB-A cable (it's the standard rectangular one you see on the sides of computers). The perfect mate is the NB10000, the ultra lightweight 10,000mAH power bank providing up to 13 hours of run time for ultra trail running or expeditions. But you could also plug it into your USB box and provide pleasant mood lighting while reading a book, or pair it with a high capacity power bank for the ultimate emergency kit light.


Just because it is long does not mean you have to wear it on your waist either. The hook-and-loop backing as well as the additional straps allow you to string this to a backpack, emergency kit, pouch, or even wear it as a headlamp. The unique shape allows you to illuminate tight spaces you could never reach before. Cleaning under the fridge? Slide the UT05 under there and clean all your cracks! The only limit to the UT05 is your imagination!

5 of 5 Perfect Ultra Running Light June 1, 2023
Reviewer: Benjamin Curtis from Hampden, ME United States  
Light & belt work great together.  Very comfortable, and look forward to running through the night with it.  My only issue is the belt size.  I'm thin and it wraps more than once around my waist so the velcro ends up being on the wrong side.  Couple of zip ties solved the problem.

5 of 5 A game changer November 5, 2022
Reviewer: Josh Pantleo from Missouri, US  
This light is great!  I bought it to add to my waist belt for running.  This light is super lightweight, bright and changes the way a trail looks when running.  With different settings, you can have super bright or even dim.  I just used this for a hike and you can really see a large area in front of you
