Nitecore HC60 Rechargeable Headlamp

Intense Illumination

The newest edition to Nitecore's impressive line of headlamps, the Nitecore HC60 Rechargeable Headlamp is a shining example of power and versatility. Powered by a single 18650 battery or a pair of CR123As and equipped with a sophisticated CREE XM-L2 U2 LED, this high performance headlamp produces a wide 100° beam of up to 1000 Lumens that will provide you with a fuller, more evenly-lit view at night. In addition to its highest output, the HC60 features 4 dimmer outputs ranging from 420 Lumens down to just 1 Lumen to suit a variety of lighting needs, as well as a trio of tactical outputs; a Strobe Mode for disorienting a target, a S.O.S. Mode for emergency situations, and a Location Beacon to mark your position. The head of the light can even be rotated 180 degrees vertically to allow for even more lighting angles and options.

Easy Operation

While its multitude of unique outputs may make it seem like a complicated device, the HC60 is incredibly easy to use. All 8 of its outputs are easily accessed and cycled through using the headlamp's straightforward single-button interface, which can be operated with just one hand, leaving an open hand for whatever task you may be tackling. Keeping the HC60 charged is equally as simple, as it is capable of being recharged internally via the light's micro-USB charging port, when equipped with an 18650, without removing the battery. Even the light's comfortable nylon headband is easy to adjust to nearly any head size, making it ready for any user!

Built To Last

Designed for extended outdoor use, the HC60 is ready to endure the wear and tear of the elements and frequent use. The headlamp's body is constructed from sturdy polycarbonate and hard-anodized aluminum, letting it withstand drops from as high as 1.5 meters and allowing it to be submerged under 2 meters of water with no damage. Internally, the light comes standard with Advanced Temperature Regulation (ATR) technology, which helps monitor the internal temperature and prevent it from overheating, as well as reverse polarity protection to protect both the headlamp and the battery. Brilliantly bright, remarkably rugged, and incredibly user-friendly, the Nitecore HC60 Rechargeable headlamp is the perfect light for any outdoor enthusiast!
