The HC33 Headlamp from Nitecore provides up to 1800 lumens of light, hands-free—except when you want your light handheld. Equipped with one Cree XHP35 HD LED, the light can be used with the elastic nylon headband or removed and used as a compact right-angle flashlight—one with a magnetic tailcap that sticks to such surfaces as the inside of a car hood or the side of a boiler. Press the push-button power switch button once and the light is on; press it again, and the button will cycle through the brightness levels. Hold the button down for 1.5 seconds and you are instantly in Turbo mode. 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 is angled at 90° vertically. Constructed from anodized aluminum alloy, the headlamp has an IP68 rating, which means it's dustproof and submersible down to 6.6'. Advanced Temperature Regulation (ATR) technology adjusts the headlamp's output to keep it from overheating, while fins on the bottom help dissipate heat as well. The HC33 is powered by one 18650 Li-ion battery or two CR123 batteries.
