Inspired by the success of Olight's popular S1 Baton pocket flashlights, the H2R Nova Rechargeable Headlamp features a brilliant 2300-lumen maximum output and a versatile design that permits the light to be used as a handheld flashlight or an area lamp. The battery never needs replacing — simply snap the USB cable onto the magnetic charging port and wait for the indicator light to turn green.
The H2R Nova's neutral white Cree cool white XHP50 LED shines at six brightness settings, from moonlight to turbo. Its aluminum alloy housing is durable but lightweight — the lamp weighs just over 2 ounces, not counting the included 18650 battery that supplies its power. Runtimes range from the one-minute burst of the 2300-lumen turbo to 45 days at the 1-lumen moonlight setting. With a color temperature of 5500-6500K, the cool white light is bright and produces sharply defined contrast. There's a lockout feature that prevents the light from being accidentally activated in your pocket or bag, and the light has an SOS mode that can signal distress for up to six hours. The light is designed to come on and off gradually to help preserve your night-acclimated vision.
The lamp can be removed from its housing and used as a flashlight with a right-angle beam. The tailcap of the light is magnetized so you can hang it on any metal surface, such as the inside of a car hood, when a stationary hands-free light source is preferable to the headlamp. Attach the pocket clip and you have a compact and highly capable everyday carry flashlight. The H2R Nova can stand up to the weather, too; it's rated IPX8 waterproof, capable of being submerged 6.6 feet deep, as well as impact-resistant to 5 feet. A magnetic insert helps secure the map on the headband while opening or closing the silicone attachment straps; if you find you don't need the magnet it can be removed and replaced with an included EVA foam pad.
