Offering five brightness levels of white light, a red and auxiliary white light, and SOS, beacon and strobe modes, Nitecore's HC65 USB-Rechargeable LED Headlamp is a versatile and powerful illumination tool. Its main emitter is a Cree XP-G2 S3 LED with a maximum output of 1000 lumens and a maximum runtime on low power of 800 hours. It also has a second, 26-lumen white light with a high Color Rendition Index for tasks like reading that don't need as much candlepower, and a red light that preserves night-acclimated vision for night photography, astronomy or wildlife observation.

The lighting program features ultra-low, low, medium, high, and turbo white; auxiliary white; steady and flashing red; and 1000-lumen white SOS, beacon and strobe modes.

The hard-anodized aluminum housing is IPX8-rated waterproof and submersible to 6.6' and impact-resistant to 5'. A protective cap keeps moisture and dirt of the intelligent micro-USB charging port. The Precision Digital Optics Technology reflector produces a smooth, even beam, and Advanced Temperature Regulation technology offers safety and comfort. Along with a rechargeable 18650 battery, the light can also run on two non-rechargeable CR-123 batteries if need be. A built-in indicator shows how much power is left in your battery to avoid unpleasant surprises.
