Nitecore HC30 overview

  • 1Description

Light up the night and keep your hands free with the Dual-Form HC30 Headlamp from NITECORE. Its single CREE XM-L2 U2 LED offers five brightness levels. The lamp is easy to operate with one hand. Press the button once and the light is on; press it again, and the button will cycle through the brightness levels. Hold the button down for more than two seconds and you are instantly in Turbo mode (1000 lumens). Emergency modes (strobe, SOS, and location beacon) can be accessed by double-clicking the button.

The headlamp features Precision Digital Optics Technology, which improves the reflector's performance by offering more curved point-to-point accuracy. The reflector then is more uniform and illuminates objects better at longer distances. The reflector provides a 100° wide beam angle, and it tilts 90° vertically.

Constructed from anodized aluminum alloy, the headlamp has an IPX8 rating, which means it's dustproof and submersible down to 6.5'. The front of the headlamp is made of a toughened ultra-clear glass with an anti-reflective coating. It is scratch and corrosion-resistant. The metal housing has Advanced Temperature Regulation (ATR) technology, which adjusts the headlamp's output to keep it from overheating, while fins on the bottom help dissipate heat as well. The HC30 can provide hours of runtime on one 18650 Li-ion battery or two CR123 batteries and over two years in standby mode on one 18650 Li-ion battery. To avoid accidental activation, just loosen the tail cover on the HC30 plus it has reverse-polarity protection circuitry to prevent damage if the battery is installed incorrectly.
