Nitecore HC50 Headtorch

  • Nitecore HC50 Headtorch

The Nitecore HC50 is the first head lamp from Nitecore and features a host of unique and innovative design elements. Powered by two CR123A or one 18650 (recommended) the HC50 has a maximum output of 565 lumens from the Cree XM-L2 LED. The HC50 also has two red LEDs for occasions when night vision needs to be preserved:   

  • Turbo: 565 Lumens - 1 hour 15 minute runtime
  • High: 350 Lumens - 2 hour 45 minute runtime
  • Mid: 170 Lumens - 6 hour 15 minute runtime
  • Low: 35 Lumens - 32 hour runtime
  • Ultra Low: 1 Lumen - 400 hour runtime

The HC50 incorporates novel 'Unique Integrated Technology' (UIT) meaning the entire flashlight body is constructed from a single piece of aero-grade aluminium alloy. UIT ensures the HC50 is sturdy and durable, yet incredibly light weight.

Includes: Headband, spare o-rings and pair of Nitecore CR123A batteries
