The HC65 from Nitecore is truly the Cadillac of all the headlamps Tech Tool Supply sells. It is bright, rugged, rechargeable, and loaded with features. Our team loved the fact this light has 3 built-in LEDS including a CRI LED. These LED's cover just about everything you could need a headlamp for, from reading to working in dark environments.
Main Light: Can output up to 1000 lumens, a Beam intensity up to 3000cd, and a Beam distance up to 110m. Ideal for long distant illumination outdoors.
Red Light: Can protect night vision effectively without influencing adaptive optics system. Suitable for wildlife observation, astronomy observation, and night photography.
Auxiliary White Light: Uses a CRI LED creating a soft light suitable for short range illumination such as reading, camping, or backup lighting in an emergency. Color Rendering Index (CRI) describes how a light source makes the color of an object appear to human eyes and how well subtle variations in color shades are revealed. CRI is a scale from 0 to 100 indicating how accurate the light source is at rendering color. The HC65 utilizes a high CRI LED (>90) that resembles the nature of morning sunlight preventing eye fatigue and revealing every subtle detail of an object.
Built-in Intelligent Micro-USB
Charging Circuit: Fast and safe Li-ion battery charging
. Automatic termination upon charging completion. Protective cap shields the USB charging port from
Maximum runtime up to 800 hours using 1 x
3400mAh Nitecore 18650 battery (not included), eliminates the need of changing battery frequently, which has higher energy intensity, better power storage and longer runtime compared to other batteries.
Full Metal Housing: Constructed from rugged aero-grade aluminum alloy with HAIII military grade hard-anodized finish to protect the core components effectively.
Great Heat Dissipation: With its extremely small thermal resistance, the full metal housing allows for larger heat dissipation surface of HC65, thus significantly improving its heat dissipation efficiency.
Flood Lighting System: Flood lighting system provides 100° beam angle to illuminate everything in a user's field of vision.
ATR: With incorporated Advanced Temperature Regulation module, HC65 regulates its outputs and adapts to the ambient environment, therefore maintaining optimal performance.
